Ruth Rowland works on the new Bill Wyman logo for his official web site.
Ruth says "The development stage included a range of hand rendered styles, from handwriting akin to his own signature to this wilder version of his name using a dry brush to create a distressed, edgy mark. Combined with the designer's bold background and retro photo, the lettering makes a powerful impact on the music legend's homepage."
No stranger to working with some major charities, Ben Tallon uses his skills as illustrator and art director to launch Xpress; an awareness campaign to raise money for the The Campaign Against Living Miserably.
CALM works to prevent male suicide in the UK, and after meeting the charity, Ben was given a blank canvas to direct a campaign focused on raising money and awareness. His response has come from an urge to share the benefits of his own artistic expression, and so along with the support of his fellow creatives, Ben has launched Xpress.
On May 3rd 2013, Ben's company Quenched Music will release an exclusive album from which 100% of proceeds will go directly to the charity. It will feature the best of new UK and international music and some overseas 'heavyweights' who will be announced soon. Also featuring men working in the arts, Ben and the team now have the support of Stephen Merchant, Danny Dyer, Jon McClure and more. In addition, a campaign newspaper will be released alongside the album containing all interviews and features including the portrait above. It was created to support an exclusive interview with Steve for the campaign in which he discusses comedy, growing up, art and his movie career. The Xpress website will also showcase contemporary art, design, comedy, illustration, film and poetry.
Please support the cause through the crowd funding campaign here.
