Ushers New Look Foundation
December 22 2010Usher Raymond IV’s New look Foundation ensures young people have the tools they need to be global leaders. Every year, New Look mentors hundreds of youth in the U.S as they discover their power as global leaders. Crush were commissioned by Turner in Atlanta to re-brand the organization. We developed all the brand and marketing assets for the year ahead.
Global poverty animation
December 15 2010
We were delighted to get involved in this exciting project for the charity Tearfund to create an inspiring animated film that would encourage people around the world to pray for global poverty. The One Voice film had to appeal across cultures and spread messages of hope through positive thought. It will be shown around the world as part of the global poverty campaign.
The animation can be found on our site here

Glug Brighton Skulls Charity Auction
December 9 2010
We are very excited to tell you that the ceramic skulls from the last
Glug Brighton are now finished and are online for a special charity auction.
These unique hand painted skulls have been designed by a host of talented illustrators and designers. All proceeds will be donated to local children's charity Rockinghorse, who bring hope to families in challenging times, improving the quality of life for some of the most vulnerable children in Sussex and Surrey.
The auction has just gone live on eBay and finishes next Friday 17th December at 10.30am.
You can see all the skulls on eBay here.
Let's dig deep and give Rockinghorse a welcome Christmas donation!
Merry Christmas from Brighton Glug team - Crush & Agency Rush

Customised Glug Skulls in all their glory
December 2 2010Rosie updated our Flickr page today with the 10 customised ceramic skulls which were painted live at the last Glug Brighton event. We plan to auction these very soon and raise money for the childrens charity 'Rockinghorse' (www.rockinghorse.org.uk/)
The images were beautifully shot by our best friend photographer Richard Rowland (www.richardrowland.co.uk/). To make sure you hear about how to get hold of one of these beauties and learn more about the Notworking event we host in Brighton every couple of months, be sure to sign up on our meetup group.
Oh! and to see the skulls click here for our Flickr page
A civilised start
December 17 2010The Christmas party started off in quite a civilised fashion as we ice skated on the new rink set to the back drop of the Brighton Pavillion. Only one wet bottom and no teeth lost. We counted the lack of injuries as a victory and headed off for the messier part of the evening... which we don’t talk about.
The ones that got away
December 8 2010
We often get asked to design book covers here at Crush, and when we get to work we always present 3 or 4 different ideas. Therefore not all the covers make it through the selection process and onto the bookshop shelves. Hmmm, that means loads of great work that no one gets to see. Well not anymore, because we have created a Flickr set with 'the ones that got away'. We have just updated this including some cover designs for the Philip Pullman book - The Good Man Jesus And The Scoundrel Christ.
