Hello! Hello! It’s been a while since we posted on here. How is everyone? We have been working hard on campaigns & creative for McDonald’s / Facebook / CocaCola / Corona Beer & Sussex Police to name a few but we just can’t share any of that work right now. So we thought we better post some previous projects you won’t have seen, or creative that met the cutting room floor. So let’s start with the latest book cover for @rkadrey Ballistic Kiss - more supernatural ass kicking adventures with an equally bonkers cover design! See y’all soon. #keeponkeepingon #bookcoverdesign #richardkadrey
And even more characters we created for the vampirates book series with @agencyrush @uclan_publishing @justinsomper #illustration #characterdesign

This year we're celebrating Puffin's 80th anniversary: 80 years of inspiring children to dream big by being a loud, proud voice for the power of stories.

The very first Puffins, published during the Second World War, were non-fiction books to support child evacuees; published with the aim of helping evacuated city children adjust to life in the country. The first four books, all non-fiction, were such a success that they were quickly followed by fiction. Fast-forward to 2020, and we're now the biggest children's publisher in the UK.

As part of the brand refresh toolkit for @puffinbooksuk we created a consistent device for presenting characters and type lock ups. Puffin are home to some of the world’s favourite characters including #spotthedog #tracybeaker #snowman #thebfg #peterrabbit #moomintroll #theveryhungrycaterpillar #matilda #funnybones & the list goes on.
More details from our @puffinbooksuk brand refresh. Patterns for every occasion.
Fun fact: The very first Puffin books published during the Second World War, were non-fiction books to support child evacuees. ——

Few pages from the brand book:

We have been working with @puffinbooksuk to refresh the brand for a while now and have set out new guidelines for them to be loud across all digital and printed media. Part of that process was to deliver a new way for quotes and headlines to shout out - here’s one of those solutions. You can see the full project on our website - find the link in our bio.
One of the outputs of our brand refresh for @puffinbooksuk was their new podcast series. Branding looks fab throughout the podcast and the actual podcast is a hoot (or whatever sound puffins make) If your kids are at home be sure to check it out. #puffinbooks #podcast #branding
