Jean-Pierre Braganza

Jean-Pierre has been a long time friend and client of ours. We’ve done two incarnations of his website the latest being a straightforward user and SEO-friendly website and blog.   We launched this in tandem with his Autumn / Winter 2009 collection.

The Life and Times of Tim

We were asked to produce a font family for HBO’s new animated series the Life and Times of Tim.  We’ve pushed around type ideas over the years and have re-cut our fair share of classical faces to fit different moulds but this would be our first proper commission in this realm.   The result is a naive hand-drawn affair for a man that finds himself in increasingly awkward situations.

Patchwork Initiative

An initiative brought forth to create dialogue between between business and fashion, music and arts.   One part of which involved a fashion show for up-and-coming designers from the RCA and Central St. Martin’s.  We were asked to provide a soundtrack for the catwalk.  It was a challenge to choose music that took into account the differing aesthetics of the individual designers and make it work as a whole.  With some careful thought and a lot of crate digging we think we cracked it.

The State of Love at the V&A

A fictional governmental propoganda rally fronted by the rakishly clad David Piper playing a dictator to citizens living state of Love over the backdrop of a soundtrack provided by The Real Tuesday Weld.  The rally was appropriately held in the Raphael room at the V&A.  We designed the flag representing the state of Love.  A strictly private affair between you, your other half and the state.

We Are All Going To Die

After years of doing art direction and set design work for other promoters and events we decided to start a night that celebrated life by reminding folks that it’s shorter than you think.   Musically diverse and underground pop-up parties at novel venues around East London.  Showcasing a wide selection of bands and djs that we love.  We’ve done a set of events for the past two years each one larger and more ambitious than the last including our Halloween party where strict dress codes brought out some brilliant costumes.   Not to mention the massive dancefloor transformed into a huge Tron-like UV light grid.  We’ve gone international bringing our events to India and New York in the last few months.

All posters and flyers were screen-printed by hand with the kind use of the print works at Unit Twenty-Five.

Times Spelling Bee

Consulting for I-D Media we helped win the pitch for this project as well as formulating the functionality, gameplay and design for this educational website.  The idea was to create a training tool to assist teachers and students in preparation for the national event.  The launch was supported by a national ad campaign and resulted in over 500 schools registering to participate in Britain’s first Spelling Bee which will be broadcast this summer.  The reach has far succeeded the original estimates to include over 100,000 registered users aged 6 - 76.  The site has also been nominated for a 2009 Webby Award in the Education category.

Rakehell’s Revels

Rakehell’s Revels was one the premiere London nightspots for a couple of years which is about the longevity of any self-respecting night. Running every Tuesday it consistently packed in the well-dressed crowd resulting in a number of commissions to keep the night as elegantly dressed as the guests. Thankfully, it has closed for the time being and has made waking up on Wednesday a far more enjoyable experience.

Media Campaign

Mike Laurie from Mirola came to us with a project that some might consider banal but really struck the statistical hobbyist inside. We had in the past worked for the financial sector creating the first online bond trading system and had also been responsible for the Athens 2004 Olympics e-commerce system. Both complex projects that needed to take what is normally a complex process and distill it into something that is easy to use.  

Building off that experience we worked with Mirola and the flash talents of Neil Rackett at Mesmotronic to design a flash application for Media Campaign to process, visualise and distill data for their clients. Sure you could do this using spreadsheets but it wouldn’t look as good and looks were just as important as usability to Media Campaign.

Stunners International

Long time friends of the family.  This project covers a period of events at the Great Eastern Hotel back when it was fun, debauched and never quite knowing how or where it was going to end up.   They’ve since covered the globe in vodka and glitter. We drew Tom (based on the perceived skeletal structure of Tom Cruise) the flying skull mascot did eventually end up as a tattoo.  Tom, being the character that he is, changed his eyewear depending on the season.

Mötley Crüe

One of my favourite bands growing up as a teenager in Souther California thanks to Pirate Radio 100.3 in the glory days before grunge usurped heavy metal. The children of the devil helped me get through the drudgery of my daily suburban paper route. So it was a dream come true when we were commissioned to provide all the design work for an end of European tour extravaganza. We got tickets to the concert and got to meet Nikki Sixx what more could we want?
