A couple of weeks ago we were asked to be part of this exhibition by Nick and Clark. The brief was to design Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding Invite, or Big Willie and Babykin’s as they call each other.
We can’t say much at this stage as it’ll ruin the surprise at the exhibition but expect flying shitting Corgis, Kanye’s member gift wrapped and The Ghost of the Queen Mother. Some great artists are involved so should be good fun.

This book landed on my doorstep this morning. In the TV and Film Chapter our LadyHawke promo ‘My Delirium’ is featured discussing Sarah Larnach’s artwork becoming synonymous with the musicians identity.

I bought a book called ‘Aboriginal Myths, Legends & Fables’ a couple of years ago, I’ve had a good read of most of them and one myth in particular stood out to me. In short, its about the creation of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and fish and how they all developed their own characteristics. A rainbow shatters into a thousand pieces, each of which became a bird, as varied in colour as the rainbow, and of an infinite number of shapes and sizes. This is an image I mocked up a while back and a little test movie how I’ve visualised the multi coloured birds, lots of pixelated colours..

We recently completed this little promotional viral for Silent Studios to promote the Youth Music Box, an impressive new installation at the Royal Festival Hall.
It takes the form of a high tech walk-in studio masquerading as a big white box. The idea is that people of all ages can turn up and create live music with no previous musical experience or skills via the cleverly constructed knobs, dials and keyboards.
After all their hard work realising such a massive project, Silent Studios came to us to create this promotional viral to advertise the piece to clients and public alike.
We got our friend illustrator Chris Haughton on board to provide an abstract visual interpretation to the script, which we then animated. Silent Studios were so pleased with the collaboration they also asked Chris to provide a new logo for the whole project.
After its stint in London, the box is off touring the country. Check it out if you can!
