Typography and illustration meet…

Kate Rolfe: Navigating Dyslexia

Kate Rolfe’s illustration for a children’s picture book uses painted letterpress forms as part of the imagery to communicate what it is like to experience dyslexia. The book is intended to help children struggling with dyslexia, and increase the understanding of others.

Lisa Sheehan: Saatchi & Saatchi OneAmpersand

This series of 3D conceptual illustrations focuses on the ampersand symbol as the main image. This work was commissioned by advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, capturing the range of work that they create, including that for their main client Toyota, parent company Publicis, and the locations of the company’s global offices. The illustrations were designed to be used on presentations and internal communications.

This is a cover for my series of zine illustrations for Six Characters in Search of an Author, and it is also an introduction of the leading characters.

Yuqing Liu: Six Characters In Search Of An Author

This project is a series of digital illustrations inspired by a play ‘Six Characters in Search of an Author’. The cover uses a vintage style of typography, combining crosshatched texture and blocks of colour, in contrast to realistic draughtsmanship.

Ričards Znutiņš-Znutāns: Malduguns beer brewery

This beer label design for the Malduguns brand features the Latvian word for ‘clumsy’. The letter ‘P’ in the word ‘Mūļāps’ is placed upside down, alongside a falling character, reflecting the sense of an awkward clumsiness. This has been included in the ‘wordmark’ used throughout the packaging and promotional material.

Lena Chetverik: Playful Poster Series

These posters show the themes of various lectures, using mixed media. The hand-lettering is an integral part of the images, using experimental, expressive forms to create eye-catching work.

Artist Book

ggemgemi: Bon Voyage

ggemgemi’s book uses ephemera collected on their travels. The printed text, and hand drawn text are as integral to the story of the book as the images.

Abby Mundell: Teraanga – the word that defines Senegal

This magazine cover with hand-rendered type was a self-initiated project inspired by a BBC travel article. The piece is itself inspired by a word: ‘Teraanga’, meaning generosity, hospitality and warmth, which embodies the national character of Sengal.
