A campaign featuring numerous singles, the album, a deluxe album and a multitude of advertising requirements – all built upon a photoshoot by legendary fashion photographer Rankin. The imagery conveying a sleek yet natural look for Jessie, which encapsulates the more personal feel to the songs and lyrics of the album – the title on the album cover is actually handwritten by Jessie.

The Last of Us
A premium limited edition media kit for this epic game that was deemed “an outright masterpiece” by IGN. Focusing on the game’s strong visual imagery and limited colour palette, the kit included subtle survival connotations such as a printed PVC slipsleeve with diecut bullet hole. The kit was distributed across 33 countries and 4 continents to great feedback, whilst we also created an online psychometric test that investigated how well users might adapt to the volatile surroundings in the game.

Sonic Lost World
A microsite to accompany the latest title in the legendary Sonic series. The idea being to produce a site that was richer and more engaging than previous sites. We designed and built the site using HTML5 techniques incorporating full screen imagery and videos, hosted on the SEGA YouTube channel. The final design brings Sonic and his friends to life via a wealth of background character information to create a vibrant, rich, informative and fun site for the fans to explore whatever the language/display.

We were commissioned by Avalon, Russell’s management, to create the campaign for his ‘Wonderbox’ tour in 2014. Known for his quirky/unconventional view of the world, we wanted to convey this in the campaign. A number of original concepts (which we eventually deemed as too self-consciously wacky) lead to an art directed photoshoot and the final campaign which was distributed across a wide range of media and advertising locations.

Home & Gifts
This show is staged every year in Harrogate, where over a thousand suppliers exhibit their products to buyers in the retail Christmas gift market. The client wanted an innovative branding solution which could be rolled out across various mediums to showcase key products and reference to the location. Our solution was to create a series of photo-realistic colour coded 3D type which were placed within neo-classical interior settings – referencing Harrogate architecture – alongside the products.

MTV conceived a series of 6 club tours themed to their different channels. Having first created the ‘club’ logo they asked us to create the individual artwork for each channel/tour. We devised a concept for each before art directing a photoshoot from which the final branding was developed to be applied across various online and print advertising. Images for MTV Hits and MTV Freshers Tours have been used to great effect already, with the remainder to be revealed for tours in 2014. View here.
And we’ve also got a couple of updated projects:
Further design and advertising for the esteemed Artificial Eye label, for titles including the BAFTA award nominated ‘McCullin’, Brazilian based ‘Neighbouring Sounds’, arthouse film ‘The Maid’ and documentary of the groundbreaking restaurant ‘El Bulli’. View here.
Total War: Rome II
The final part of this campaign was a Collectors Edition – an oversized rigid box, which not only opens up to be a game board, but also contains various premium content including your very own roman onager/catapult scaled model! View here.
