Who let the words out? Who? Who? Who? Who?
August 30 2011We are really proud of our partnership with Faber & Faber and for the last 6 years we have been delighted to design their New Titles catalogue. This year we explored a way to visually represent the changing nature of publishing. No longer do authors words just appear in the hardback and paperback. Oh no! you are just as likely to experience them in the real word all around us, for example printed on a mug, a deckchair, a poster or in any number of digital forms to be consumer anywhere and at anytime.
So we thought we would let the words have a little fun outside the Faber & Faber offices. With the help of Andy Smith (illustration) and Richard Rowland (photography) we released the words to cause havoc and mischief. This is just a snap shot of what they got up to in the streets of London and we aim to publish the full catalogues on our site soon.
Tropicana station domination
August 23 2011
Super excited to receive some images of a project we have just finished for DDB in New York via our illustration agency - Agency Rush. This was a complete take over of the Times Square shuttle train and station for the launch of the new Tropicana mini bottle. We created 9 different illustrations to wrap around the entire carriages which covered everything including the seats and ceiling. Full project can be viewed here.
Now that’s gotta wake you up on the way to work!
Keep on moving

The likely lads
August 26 2011
We would like to wish a warm (slightly late) welcome and big cheer from Crush Towers to Best, Jack & Jose. Three very talented designers that bring an international flavour to the team. Best joins us from Thailand, Jose has flown over from Portugal and Jack is a good old Brighton boy. We are expecting great things chaps. No pressure!
