The Sauce Always Justifies The Means

The latest from Caroline Church sees her bringing to life some amusing proverbs with her unique illustrations.

Commissioned by Lisa Lee at Crispin Porter & Bogusky, for Domino’s Pizza she explains, "They were after a serious engraved feel but with a tongue in cheek note. The illustrations play on the idea that proverbs guide and inspire Domino's to perfect their pizzas.." The illustrations feature on their new boxes and on the Pizza Proverbs site.

John Lennon’s 70th Birthday

More lettering mastery from Ruth Rowland who was thrilled to create the lettering for John Lennon’s "Gimme Some Truth Campaign" to commemorate his 70th birthday.

Overseen by Yoko Ono and EMI Music and using many samples of Lennon’s own writing, Ruth developed hand drawn lettering for use across the album to capture some of his light humour. The logo for the campaign was inspired by the small calligraphic self portraits that often accompanied his signature.

Mark Oldroyd

Mark Oldroyd has recently completed some paintings for use in a forthcoming exhibition at the new visitors centre at Millford House in Jesmond Dene, Tyne and Wear. The centre will open in December 2010, in time to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Tyneside industrialist and inventor Lord William Armstrong.  Born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1810, Armstrong was the inventor of the hydraulic crane and the 'Armstong Gun', as well as being an early advocate of renewable energy. He and his wife were instrumental in creating a woodland garden along the sides of the Jesmond Dene valley, now a public park. The exhibition will track the lives and achievements of both Lord and Lady Armstrong.
