New Artists / Boneface / Manuel Bartoletti / Laurie Greasley / Bartosz Kosowski / Dmitry Ligay

Over the summer, we’ve been communicating with several artists regarding representation and are proud to announce that we are now the artist representatives for Boneface, Manuel Bortoletti, Laurie Greasley, Bartosz Kosowski and Dmitry Ligay. Boneface needs little introduction, perhaps best known for creating music packaging for Queens of the Stone Age. His work is jammed with the colour schemes of early 90’s Marvel and 50’s monster comics, a style he describes as ‘slimed pop-art’. You can see more of his work on his Début Art portfolio here: https://www.debutart.com/artist/boneface Manuel Bortoletti is an award-winning infographic designer, seamlessly blending technical information, data visualisation and illustration. His clean and rational work is accompanied by attention to aesthetics and colour combinations, following his belief that a high standard of visual attractiveness draws in the viewer and motivates their understanding of data.

The Venetian / Andrew Archer

Andrew worked together with Art Advisory to create the story, give creative direction and supply the artwork for The Venetian’s new restaurant ‘Hiro’. Andrew created a written story for the main character Hiro and four additional characters. This was then used as the foundation to tell the story of the restaurant and it’s roots. Andrew took the narrative and transformed it into an 18.5m x 2.25m (60ft x 7ft) layered installation which was also animated and implemented into the digital ordering design.

Trending Now / Coronavirus Content

In these uncertain times, one thing is certain— our artists are creating brilliant work around and about the pandemic, whether it be in their personal time or for clients. Whether it be thoughtful, conceptual pieces like Vilius Vizgaudis’ personal work about social distancing, or bold, graphic, editorial illustrations like Patrick George’s recent work highlighting everyday heroes for Supermarket News, one thing we know for sure is that our artists are thinking about the pandemic and creating insightful, meaningful work through it. They are finding beauty in the madness or bringing comfort and warmth during these strange times. While Vilius’ work is all about the small details, with a focus on architecture and the surreal, Patrick’s work is powerful in it’s simplicity. He takes a conceptual idea and turns it into a graphic moment that his audience immediately understands. On the more informative and educational end of the spectrum, some fantastic work has been created by artists Bloodbros...

Tobias Hall / McMullen Heritage Ales

Tobias Hall was asked by McMullen, a family brewer since 1827, to rebrand their collection of Heritage Ales. McMullen has long been affectionately known as “Mac’s” and to celebrate this has created a new sub-brand under that name that ties together their three Heritage Ales: Country Best Bitter, East India Pale Ale and the famous AK. Creating a logo suite for the new Mac’s brand as well as individual logos for each of the new heritage ales, and their respective pump clips, Tobias created a range of treatments across the project. By mixing familiarity and the brand’s existing iconography with an injection of personality and refinement, Tobias was able to implement both drawn elements as well as clean letterform design.
