Helen spent the day in Washington yesterday visiting our clients over at Ogilvy. Hels got a few snapshots of the conference wall we created for them late last year and wowed them (hopefully) with some of our new design and illustration projects. Thank you to everyone who showed up for the presentation.

Sneak Peek No2
March 4 2011Two sneak peeks in the same month we hear you cry. It’s not allowed… but hey, rules are made to be broken. We escaped from the studio twice this week - this is part of a very exciting project we are working on for Cartoon Network. If you remember classic toons like Dexters Laboratory, Johnny Bravo & Cow and Chicken you were probably born in the 80’s, which also means you’re probably going to HAVE to find out what we have been up to!
Watch this space.
All in the name of art

We spent a day in the beautiful countryside of Shropshire last week filming with the childrens author Andrew Peters to promote his new book Ravenwood. This is our favourite photographer Richard Rowland hanging out of a tree to get the perfect shot.

Helen and Carl took a busman’s holiday on the first day of the New York trip. A rainy day was spent at MOMA with Apple Mac inspired modern art, and a trip back in time looking at Macs from years gone by. Would you look at the size of that keyboard!

New York trip
March 11 2011
After an amazing week of meetings Carl is leaving the hussle bussle, yellow cabs, diners, liquor stores and rain of New York. Helen has another couple of busy weeks, so if you are in town and want to hook up, please drop us a line.

As part of our monthly sneak peak feature we though we would let you spy on some recent creative shenanigans happening over at Crush Towers. When we’re not button pressing and staring at large glowing monitors emblazoned with pictures and words, we like nothing more than getting our hands dirty. This sneak peek is work in progress for a publishing companies export catalogue. A hundred hand painted book covers, a photographers studio, some stroking of chins from wise art directors... and bingo - smart graphical idea design solutions!
All will be revealed very soon.
