Chris Labrooy / Callaway Golf

Acclaimed CGI artist and designer Chris Labrooy was asked to bring his unique vision to the golf media landscape. As world-renowned Callaway Golf launched their newest product, The Rogue Driver, Chris put his own spin on the club by reshaping it into the beloved thumbs-up emoji. Chris’s keen eye for detail was essential to maintaining the integrity of product; consideration of everything from club weight, to product materials, to cosmetic specifications were a still priority despite its new shape. Thumbs-up, Chris! To see more of Chris's work click here.

Corey Brickley / The Folio Book of Horror Stories

Corey Brickley was commissioned by The Folio Society to illustrate the binding and 6 internal illustrations for ‘The Folio Book of Horror Stories’, released as part of their Autumn 2018 collection. Corey’s brooding, atmospheric style with its particular noir nuances made him the perfect choice to illustrate the stories collected within this anthology, ranging from classic to contemporary. Corey had to navigate the balance between depicting physical embodiments of supernatural phenomena with the more suggestive elements of horror that are intangible, dwelling in the psyche. The result is this series of beautiful expressive images that transport the reader into terrifying fictional worlds.

Matt Herring / Timeout: 50 Years, 50 Covers.

Of 2,500 Timeout covers published since 1968, Matt Herring’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee cover makes the top 50 in this new exhibition at the London Museum of Brands, along side artists such as Banksy and Tracey Emin. A new book published by Unicorn accompanies the exhibition. ’Peter Blake was originally supposed to design a cover for Queen Elizabeth’s diamond Jubilee,’ explains art editor Anthony Huggins. ‘He did it, but it wasn’t quite right. So we sent his to design to our subscribers and commissioned illustrator Matt Herring to do this alternative, Sex Pistols-inspired version. It was a bit of a dry subject, so - in Time Out style - we wanted to do something that didn’t take itself too seriously!’ Did you know that Time Out is turning 50? It’s true: the first issue, put together by our founder Tony Elliott on his kitchen table, was published in August 1968. And we’re not the types to let a big birthday go uncelebrated. To mark half a century of bringing you the best of London, we’ve...

The importance of craft and making was imbued in him at art school and it has stuck with him throughout his career.

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.

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...
