James Grover paints a theatre land mural in Zizzi Ristorante on The Strand.

James's design was for the alcove space where he has represented a selection of the well-known theatres in the area. He says "The focus of the West End 'Theatreland' is of course the shows themselves, however the theatre buildings are often iconic and beautifully grand venues." Using acrylic pens and emulsion, James has drawn St Martin’s Theatre, Lyceum Theatre, Queen’s Theatre, Victoria Palace Theatre, Novello Theatre, London Palladium and Palace Theatre, along with characters from some well-known productions. He was also asked to produce a decorative mural for the George Bernard Shaw quote wall, which includes some theatre inspired elements, all this was completed over a period of six days.

Tomato Skirts

These juicy ads are for Saveol in France and illustrated by Jacqueline Bissett.

The brief was to show cheeky girls desiring and eating the mini tomatoes making up their skirts - which were superimposed onto the artworks. The fun images are currently in use on billboards throughout France, with the possibility of them going on the side of trucks at some point, which would be great!

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.

Lindsey Spinks Packaging for Vita V Organics

Lindsey Spinks has been working very hard on this set of packaging designs created for Vita V Organics. Lindsey said “The brief was to create two wrap-around labels one for a French vinaigrette and the other for a lemon dressing with a fresh, sophisticated and organic feel. It was a very hands on project where I had creative freedom to design the whole label with collaborative input and direction from Vita & Robyn”. We love the vibrant designs and think they give the packaging a bold and distinctive appeal that would look great on any table!

Mary Woodin ‘Classic Bakes’ illustrations

A little booklet of “Classic Bakes’ illustrated by Mary Woodin comes with October’s Ideal Home magazine. Mary was asked to illustrate classic recipes from the magazine’s archives dating right back to 1920. A keen cook, Mary was delighted to have an excuse to dig out her battered rolling pin and vintage whisk to create these evocative illustrations!
