Ben Scruton and Orange

Ben Scruton was commissioned by Orange France to illustrate their Smartphone promotion. Ben’s characterisation skills were put to perfect use, to create over 30 characters in a variety of Smartphone situations. This is just a small selection of images used for booklets, in-store animated guides and point of sale. Ben’s playful yet mature style set the perfect tone for the whole promotion.

Let It Out

Once again Gail Armstrong gives us a masterclass in paper sculpture.

This incredible illustration is one of three posters commissioned by Coco Weir at JWT for Kleenex’s internal awards, linked to their "Let It Out" campaign. Each poster depicts two images reflecting the positive and negative of one scenario. Gail says, "Lovely job to work on as they gave me free reign to design everything including the type."

What’s Wrong With Washington?

The latest from Derek Bacon sees him bring to life the globally-resonating and challenging question: "What's Wrong With Washington" for The Economist.

This digital piece has taken pride of place on the front cover of The Economist recently. Taking advantage of the statue's recognisable status, Derek satirically reworks this globally famous memorial in photoshop to show Abraham Lincoln's despair at the slow state of US economic recovery.
