Mary Woodin illustrates Exploring Birds for Callisto Media.

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.”

Chris Nielsen’s From Shore to Ocean Floor Out This Month

Following on from the success of Balloon to the Moon, Phosphor's Christopher Nielsen has teamed up with Gill Arbuthnott again on From Shore to Ocean Floor, which will be published by Big Picture Press on 30th September.


"From sandy beaches to mysterious, inky depths, this beautiful book is the story of ocean exploration, from shore to ocean floor. Seen from space, Earth is a swirl of blue and white. The blue is Earth's oceans, which cover 70% of its surface... yet the ocean is the most unexplored region of our planet. From Shore to Ocean Floor is the story of how humans went from building the first boats, to discovering the secrets of the deep. Marvel at incredible scientific discoveries, be dazzled by some of the most exciting new species and admire the incredible men and women who took the very first steps below the surface. This spectacularly illustrated book comes from the author and illustrator duo of the award-winning Balloon to the Moon."

Balloon to the Moon won the 'Children’s Trade 9 to 16 Years' category at the British Book Design & Production Awards, and it's hoped From Shore to Ocean Floor will be just as successful.

Lucy Rose updates Heron Valley’s titular Heron!

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.”
