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!

They say two heads are better than one, Becky and Louise of Good Wives and Warriors have made a couple of videos explaining just why that is. They're promoting a new book cover design they've completed for Random House for The Incarnations by Susan Barker. It's a beautiful piece... so come on in, put the kettle on, and meet the makers themselves.

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.

Simon Spilsbury goes East to #Gowestandgetsome

As part of a campaign to promote Bristol as a global hotspot for tech industries and general marvellous place to live, Simon came all the way up to Shoreditch armed to the teeth with Sharpies to spread the gospel. He's a bit of a wizard at live drawing and we gather he drew in a bit of a crowd! The result was this incredible mural on the window of Cowling and Wilcox, which we have the pleasure of seeing every day on our way to and from the station! Thanks Simon! View a video of the event here.
