We were recently asked by the multi-award winning British singer Rag 'n' Bone man to design the backdrop for his UK and European tour. Due to the nature of the piece, its size, and having to be durable enough to withstand the tour, we teamed up with one of the countries leading print houses to create one of our largest pieces yet
Brave Bison is the online video business redefined. Expanding their studio, we were asked to provide a piece for their indoor football pitch and the Slash Football Network, a company who they work closely alongside with. The brief was for bold, clean and sharp lettering. we were fortunate enough to work alongside the Heavyweight master of typography GARY to create this.
We were contacted by The Oakford Social Club and asked to create and paint a series of images that would be used as part of the bars refurbishments. The images had to incorporate nature, wild life and music and were to be expressed with a style that would suit the new persona of the venue .
We were asked by Small Batch Coffee to create a design for the companies branch on Wilbury Road Hove. The requirements were that the design had to be in keeping, and wouldn't look out of place with the surrounding Georgian/Regency architecture, to incorporate traditional sign writing elements, and to be eye catching with a modern twist.
We were invited to feature at the 'Art by Friends' Gallery for the 'Grandeur et Decadence' exhibition. Working alongside other collectives and artists we provided a selection of prints, a collection of original illustrations and painted the main gallery. Watch how we created the piece below.
We were invited into The Westgate School Maths department and asked to create a piece that would inform and inspire the students. The department leaders focused on using three words that best described maths and wanted something that was clean cut, bold and informative. The blue background was inspired by the schools official colour.
We were asked to create a piece that would brighten up Bn1 Magazine's new office. Working alongside the team we developed a design that would do just that...
Using colours inspired by the company logo, the finished piece was bold and bright containing almost everything the publication represents. From news, sports and events to food and drink, all of these elements hurtle from floor to ceiling in a striking diagonal banner.
We even got a nice feature in their magazine...
The Mesmerist is one of Brighton’s most popular and eclectic bars. From the vintage dentist's furniture displayed in its front windows to the mini barbershop next to the upstairs bar, The Mesmerist has always been recognised as one of Brighton’s quirkier and more individual venues.
When they decided to refurbish, we were asked to create several murals maintaining the underlying concept from which The Mesmerist has always drawn its identity - but with a unique twist.
Upstairs was transformed into a private room - the only access being through a secret door masquerading as a drinks cabinet. Inside this hidden parlour, we pursued the Gothic theme in the four large and imposing portraits, including both frames and pieces painted directly onto the walls. But in contrast to the portraits of solid and virtuous Victorian gentlemen that you might expect, they portray characters ranging from the poverty stricken to the twisted and the bizarre.
In keeping with the sinister undertones created by these underworld characters, downstairs we created an image of the Mesmerist himself: a broken entertainer exhausted by his profession.
But crucially, the first image to greet those entering the bar had to be something startling that would instantly immerse them in the strange and curious world of The Mesmerist. Maintaining the Victorian theme and a continuity of style and colour created the sinister atmosphere. And incorporating elements of steampunk and a vintage-horror, action-movie poster feel to give it breadth of association, here's what we created ...
As part of Mitchells & Butlers’ re-vamp to its chain of traditional Irish bars previously known as O'Neill's, Radicals has fast become one of Islington's go-to pubs. To help with its transformation we were asked to create a piece that would symbolise its metamorphosis, catch the eye of the passing public and draw them towards the entrance. We did just this, mixing a range of boldly coloured, warped characters, to represent its new clientele, tumbling down the wall towards the bar.
Tasked with painting Brighton's legendary bar, The Fish Bowl, we had to use the space carefully; painting the narrow staircase to the upper floor could have easily made it overcrowded and claustrophobic. Instead we used the space sparingly to put a slight twist on the bar’s vibrant and late-night reputation. Applying and intertwining seaweed, fish bones and mines into the space, we created a murky and sinister atmosphere to simulate the experience of a drunken journey from the depths of the fish bowl.
Once upon a time, O'Neill's of Wardour Street used to be the notorious Flamingo Club, one of London's major players and hosts in the development of British RnB and Jazz. We were asked to paint directly behind the stage, providing something bold and fun that would celebrate the bar's legacy. Treble clef flamingos seemed the perfect choice.
Tilt is a multi-discipline digital agency based in Brighton, covering everything from motion graphics and art direction to building games and branding. We were tasked with providing their entry space with something simple but vibrant that would capture the essence of their home town. What better way to encapsulate this than with seagulls? Anyone who's ever been to Brighton can't fail to notice (or be intimidated by ...) the city's population of seagulls. In a uniquely quirky twist, the speech bubbles have been painted with touch-sensitive paint so, when pressed, each bird will call out a different word.
