I was honoured to work with Amnesty International on their annual 'Write for Rights' campaign. I was asked to produce twelve illustrations representing cases of human rights abuses from around the world. Each artwork was designed to tell the stories of people's suffering and encourage Amnesty's supporters to write to them and their respective governments for action. My imagery has been used across online, print and outdoor campaigns across the globe and has helped Amnesty gain over 2 million sign-ups, please click here to take action
Cornichon is the word for little cucumber in French, we added the texture of a cornichon to the logo and brand, modernising the 'French Bistro style' look. Expert gold leaf was added by Matt Mitchell from Bravo Boards (seen here late at night working on the windows). The back of the building used to be a post office, it's now an area the coffee is brewed so we incorporated an old postage stamp design into the serving hatch.
For the 87th Oscars, I was one of the 15 artists from around the world invited to be part of their creative campaign, "Imagine What’s Possible." The 15 artworks created were used in key broadcast moments during and in the run up to the special event. Full gallery here http://www.oscars.org/art-gallery
Rye is a useful name for a café bar as it's an ingredient used in many foods and drinks including beer, whisky and bread all sold at this new establishment in Beeston, Nottinghamshire. It's a sturdy grass and flourishes where others can't. (Marketing and brand development by @mattshelts interior design by Northern Backdrop )
