Chris Wormell and the fictional village “Adland”


Chris Wormell was delighted to be chosen by ad agency AMVBBDO to illustrate the sign for the fictional village “Adland”.   AMV’s witty and original take on designing the annual for the Creative Circle Awards 2010 can be seen in the book itself and on the film to accompany the book

Chris’s work was printed and placed on a wooden mock-up of a classic village sign, then photographed in the midst of a rolling country scene.  We think it looks very convincing and that Chris’s linocuts look stunning.  Well done Chris!
