United Creatives has installed a wayfinding intervention in Walsall town centre, with a hand painted wall mural. The artwork aims to engender civic pride via a series of positive local facts and adorns a 22m long, previously dull stretch of concrete and directs pedestrians to some of the town’s hidden gems.
Glad has created a pair of typographic mugs for Tesco, featuring the messages ‘a nice cup of T’ and ‘wake up & smell the coffee’, and using negative space within the letterforms to bring out images of mugs, teaspoons and coffee beans.
Raw has created the George Best style guide for IMG to celebrate Best’s style and talent, and encourage brands and retailers to take his iconic status forward through a range of products and business ventures.
Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani have teamed up to create Street Stone, with Caillard photographing some of the Louvre’s most famous sculptures as well as friends in similar poses, before Persani painstakingly combined the two to bring the statues up-to-date.
The 15th Manchester Food and Drink Festival has revealed a new creative identity designed by Manchester-based Eskimo Creative. The vintage inspired series of illustrations evoke the history of the festival and the city’s food and drink heritage, and has been unveiled with the launch of the festival’s Food Stories microsite.
