A bottle of Bordeaux

Jitesh Patel creates a new beautiful map with a creative twist. This particular one for Town and Country magazine details the specific areas within the Bordeaux wine region. The combination of traditional decorative hand drawn details and the bold wine-red stain across the image to mark out the region makes it feel like it could have come straight from the captain's cabin of a merchant vessel. I'd love to see this printed on vintage paper!

Off the Wall

Chris Gilvan Cartwright was let loose all over this little living room with his mad, inky line work and characters. We'd love to see this as a wallpaper design! There's also some cheeky little pots to see in his portfolio here.

Brick House

This is one of the BEST things we've recieved in the post here at CIA in ages! We like nice post. Alice Pattullo has teamed up with Design For Today (who have an excellent instagram) to produce a small run of Lithograph prints as a homage to Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious who are undoubtably an influence of Alice's work.

Emblema

We were lucky enough to finally meet Ricardo Cavolo, who joined the agency at the end of last year, he's been a busy chap, jetsetting around the world painting murals and putting on exhibitions. His latest however was at NOW Gallery in Greenwich. The show featured some gigantic flags which he had painted inside the space to reflect the history of the Greenwich Peninsula. The show was produced in association with Nobrow and ELCAF.
