A new identity for Alexia Somerville.
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.
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.
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.
We provided some tongue-in-cheek textile designs for Pringle of Scotland Spring / Summer 2008 season.
A selection of work done for the erstwhile central London members bar and cafe which catered to a predominately arts and literature crowd. We provided illustrations such as the technicolour tiger lily below and print design for the various events that took place there.

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.
