After a short delay the first colour went down on the first poster print of our Cult Quotes Series - for the rather super 'Dead Man's Shoes'. Screenprinted by bearded wonder SAVWO finished A2 posters will be overprinted in three military camo colours. They're also extremely limited and are going to be given to our friends and colleagues who love the film like we do.
In order to get the correct tone of voice with the prints we felt it was necessary to "get into character" during the screenprint process. (See The Method for further reference.) The final two colours will be down this week so final posters should be trimmed and ready to go next week all being well...

A little collaboration with the chaps at OWT that we've been working on. Montpellier's is a new café & bar opening in Manchester's Northern Quarter. We handled the logo design and the print side of things, OWT are busy designing and implementing the web side of things. Design and print for cards, flyers, staff uniforms, menus and beermats are all in the works. It opens in April!
We've been working on a new exhibition piece for performance artist Dani Abulhawa - Are You Known To Us? A follow up of sorts to a previous piece we created for Dani (True Love Waits) this A2 poster will accompany a live movement performance by Dani at an upcoming exhibition in Bristol in April. The poster is instructional, but playful and clarifies Dani's intention with her live performance outside of the gallery space.

We were recently peer reviewers on content and structure for a new book on idea generation from AVA Academia. We even got a quote on the cover too! Part of the very successful "Basics" series - if you want to be able to think differently and be well versed in developing creative, idea driven work then this book is a great starting point.

We popped into the printer's today to have a look at production on some promo postcards we've designed for illustrator and painter Judy Wainwright. Printed black on three different GF Smith Colorplan colours - Candy Pink, Sorbet Yellow and Powder Green. There are also a number of limited edition Neon Pink on Candy Pink ones too. More pix and some neon pink wrapping paper to come soon...
