Sam Chivers / The Guardian

Sam Chiver's worked with The Guardian to produce a stunning series of illustrations to accompany the article ‘What will the airport of the future look like?' Sam’s work naturally veers towards that blurry point between science and nature, and so it is no surprise that Sam was the perfect artist to visualise the subjects of the article - transport, alternative energy, biodiversity and innovation. Each illustration has been beautifully animated and can be seen in action here along with the article on The Guardians website. Follow the link for Sam’s full portfolio and profile.

Florian Schommer / The Folio Society / Science Fiction Anthology

We’re delighted that the time has come to share Florian Schommer's outstanding illustrations for The Folio Science Fiction Anthology, introduced and edited by Brian W. Aldiss - published by The Folio Society. Science fiction has always been a fertile home for the short story and this special Folio collection is a shining constellation of science-fiction stars, each story exemplifying the very best of the genre. Florian is an illustrator and graphic designer, who in 2013 graduated from Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences with a degree in Communication & Graphic Design, and since then has been continuing his artistic practice in Hamburg. In addition to his freelance work, he co-founded the kjosk collective, creating original designs for clients all over the world.

Viktor Koen / SNF Cultural Center / Athens

Début’s own Viktor Koen, illustrator, designer, and fine artist, recently completed an on-site installation for an impressive cultural center combining the National Library of Greece, Greek National Opera and Stavros Niarchos park, designed by noted Italian architect Renzo Piano. The installation houses Bréal’s Marathon Silver Cup, presented to the first marathon winner at the inaugural Modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896.   In Viktor’s words: “As the cup landed in its permanent SNFCC home, it became clear that we needed a comprehensive solution to document the cup’s history for standing readers, designed intriguingly enough to keep them reading to the end. Other than archival images accompanying every angle of the story and an editorial inspired layout, a long dynamic illustration occupying the full length of the frieze seemed to be just the visual device to wrap everything together and turn the connection between reader and text into an experience. The rest is history.”   See photos...

Neil Webb / Royal Mail / Agatha Christie

The stamps represent some of her best-known novels – Murder on the Orient Express, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The Body in the Library, And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and A Murder is Announced. Royal Mail have also developed an augmented reality feature for the The Mysterious Affair at Styles stamp which triggers a 3D animation, which can be seen here.

Welcome back the great Si Scott!

Broken Hearts Make it Rain (self-initiated piece). Words are the main influence on the majority of Si’s work - whether it’s something he’s heard, read or a song lyric etc… Words have always played a big part in his life (not only in his work). ‘Broken Hearts Make It Rain’ is a Radiohead lyric which, as soon as he heard it, Si scribbled down in his notebook for future reference. Even if Si isn’t working on a type piece he can pretty much guarantee that his idea will come from words in one way or another. Each of Si’s original hand-drawn designs and 3D creations are timeless, or they are all anachronisms in their own right. With global recognition from creative industries and institutions, Si’s award-winning work have been featured in numerous publications, including the Best 200 Design Moments Ever by Computer Arts Magazine, and honoured twice in Lurzer’s Archive - The Best 200 Illustrators In The World.

The exhibition will be showing at The Coningsby Gallery from the 5th - 16th September 2016, open daily from 10am until 6pm, Mondays to Fridays.
