Istvan Szugyiczky / Variety Magazine

Istvan Szugyiczky was asked by Variety to tightly drape the well-known FOX logo in a silky cloth. The covering that obscures the ubiquitous logo just enough to still be recognizable alludes to the mystery surrounding the future of the corporation. To see more of Istvan's work click here.

Tobias Hall / Cadillac.

Tobias Hal was recently asked by Stroke Art Fair in Munich to create a 8x4 metre mural for its main sponsor, Cadillac. The brief was pretty open, so Tobias set about focusing on words and phrases associated with the car (a Cadillac XT5) and the brand as a whole, then employed varying lettering styles combined with illustration to bring the piece to life.

Yehrin Tong / Virago's 40th Year

One year ago, one of our talented illustrators - V&A award winner Yehrin Tong - was approached by Virago - a British publisher committed to championing women's voices - to work with them on a series of 13 book titles by influential women writers throughout history. This was no small commission! Over the thirteen titles, Yehrin worked closely with art director Hannah Wood to create intricate and contemporary patterns, with a focus on a diamond structure and working with negative space. The result is a breathtaking body of work that serves in celebrating the work of some of the key female voices in literature. The books all feature the classic green spines which were a staple on all VMC titles, and along with heavier stock and foil detailing, these series of thirteen titles are released to celebrate 40 years of Virago championing the important - often overlooked - work of women writers. As Editorial Director of the Virago Modern Classics, Donna Coonan says, 'If women’s stories aren’t...

Tobias Hall / Warburtons

We're delighted to share the outcome of Tobias Hall's collaboration with WCRS for the latest Warburtons nationwide campaign, a mammoth project that called on Tobias to create an aesthetic identity for their nationwide print and digital campaign. Warburtons has become well known for its blockbuster approach to advertising, and they made no exception for their latest offering. British-born comedian Peter Kay was called upon to be the heart, face and indeed body of the Regency-era epic drama, a bread-themed parody of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'. In creating the still assets to accompany the television spot, Tobias maintained the 19th Century look and feel of the advert. He sought inspiration from hand-painted adverts of the period, bringing them up to date with a modern and lighthearted twist in keeping with the humour of the campaign and with Warburtons' instantly recognisable branding. Tobias' particular ability to create rich, intricate designs that are both refined and dynamic...
