This book is perfect for kids who love naughty pets and a beautiful showcase of Adam’s talent for creating animals that seem to leap from the page.
Mary Woodin has illustrated an activity book for children, Exploring Birds for Callisto Media. With art direction from Scott Petrower, Mary illustrated birds for over 50 activities aimed at getting kids out into nature and learning;
“I gleaned a lot along the way too and enjoyed illustrating everything from how to make a bird feeder out of a recycled bottle and wooden spoons, to the anatomy of an owls’s eye.”
Anne Wilson recently created this WILD image for Chester zoo, the six metre mural can be seen across the large window at Chester Zoo shop with elements from the illustration used within the shop itself and on signage.
This is the biggest Anne has seen her work used and was commissioned to re-vamp the shop ready for opening after the Covid rules were relaxed back in July. The animal filled scene with its charming jungle characters frame the expansive window, inviting the visitors from the outside.
Lucy Rose has created an updated identity for Heron Valley; a Devon – based cider and juice producer, who also happen to be local to Lucy! The updated identity takes their majestic Heron icon and gives it a more artisanal, botanical feel.
The client and Lucy worked together to come up with a composition that could be complimented by Art Deco/ botanical borders, “this was a relatively fast process as I think the client and I had the same ideas in mind.” Opting for a vintage colour palette (a perfect match for Lucy), the final design soars with subtle sophistication but remains grounded with earthy warm tones.
“This project has been so great to work on and I enjoyed every bit of it. For a while I have wanted to work on some more packaging- based briefs and so when this job came up, I was thrilled to get another opportunity to. I think also the company being local to me and so friendly has just made the whole process even more special.”
Claire Harrup has been commissioned by Eating Well magazine to illustrate an article on community supported fisheries. Creating 10 fish themed illustrations of featuring specific species and aquatic elements, Claire’s unique textures give the wide-eyed kippers massive amounts of personality.
MBDesign approached Rachael from the US last year to ask for her assistance in developing a new look for the ‘home brand’ products for Natural Grocers. Rachael told us how excited she was to help create a new brand based on her charming Illustrations, “I was asked to create an animal character to compliment each product, as well as reflecting the natural and organic ethos of the brand. Character designing is a dream job of mine so I enjoy every moment of working on this!”
Rachael worked alongside the in house team at MBD to develop the brand’s look. “This involved a lot of experimentation, sketches and colour tests. Once we were happy, the rest fell into place quite easily.” Her deliciously cute Illustrations cover each item in the new product range, from silly squirrels spinning honey to fluffy polar bears chowing down on frozen mango chunks!
We have even more exciting news as Rachael let us know there should be even more as the brand grows “As the Natural Grocers brand products continue to expand, I look forward to sharing more fun characters with you.
