Stamp Collecting

The Commonwealth Games have been keeping our artists busy. Tim Marrs has produced this vivid set of stamps for the Royal Mail to commemorate the event. They'll certainly be a highlight of his two decade-long stamp collection (oh yes…) Keep your eyes peeled for them on a parcel near you!

Raising a toast to Royal Mile Whiskey

After a visit to the Royal Mile Whiskey shop in Edinburgh (which, as far as meetings go, seems a pretty damn good place to have one), Sarah J Coleman went home to design a new identity and bottle labels for the shop and their distillery. She came up with these elegant, personalised typographic pieces, and then wrote a lovely blog post about her creative process. Cheers!

New Work from Darren Hopes

We've popped up a few new pieces by Darren Hopes. In particular this piece commissioned by the Times T2 to illustrate a part of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, who is in fact not Robert Galbraith, but J.K.Rowling... confused? Well, all we know is there are no wizards in sight. We love the atmospheric, film-noir feel about the piece.
