Doctor Who Time Capsule

Ruth Rowland works on the lettering for the limited edition Fourth Doctor Time Capsule for the BBC.
This luxury product aimed at the dedicated fan, celebrates Tom Baker and the 50th Anniversary of the Dr Who TV series, with a limited run of 5,000. Ruth Says "The box itself is designed to look like a Gallifreyan artefact and with this in mind, I was asked to create both English and Gallifreyan lettering for the DVD covers. This involved some very enjoyable research, looking at stills from old Doctor Who episodes and discussing the appropriate feel and layout of the two different alphabets with the art director. Once printed the title had the added bonus of only being legible once seen through the coloured disc provided." (Watch the video). The box set is 'lovingly put together' and full of Tom Baker goodies.

Lang is one of the finest*

Helen Lang works on several product and packaging concepts for the Tesco finest* range.
Commissioned by P&W London, Helen created the hand lettering for three dipping oils and rapeseed oil. She says "The brief was to make it look hand rendered as though someone had created their own infusions and written on the labels as a home cook would do." More products with Helen's work will be released soon.

SIMPLE MINDS

Ruth Rowland successfully uses her skills on this promotion for the Simple Minds upcoming tour.
She says "This three dimensional bust was created for the Simple Minds' The Greatest Hits Tour this April. I was commissioned to develop the lettering, working with a range of different marker pens, then scanning and fitting the script to a photo of the head. It was built up gradually until the final image was approved. It's surprisingly tricky to keep the lettering looking raw and not overworked - this vernacular lettering is influenced more by Outsider Art and hand drawn ephemeral signage than by traditional calligraphy. The designer sent over images of the scrawled graffiti on Jim Morrison's grave and the Abbey Road sign as the inspiration for the piece - the fumes from the markers probably helped a little too....there are also plans to use it on the related album which has yet to be released."
