September 29 2010Here is a sneak peak of the catalogue cover we have produced for Quercus Books. Quercus was the fastest-growing trade publisher in the UK last year and they look set for exciting times ahead. We are thrilled to be working with them and look forward to producing some tasty work in the future.

We are sailing, we are sailing
September 18 2010After a long and seriously busy summer, team Crush took an afternoon break for a spot of sailing. Fun was had by all, apart from one sickly sea dog (no names mentioned). Team purple won the racing, team spirits were lifted and now we all know what a jib, tiller, tack and rigger is!
September 29 2010Scholastic in New York recently commissioned us to create a book trailer for Plain Kate - a Russian-flavored historical fantasy for young readers. This is now all over the web and you can view it here on You Tube.
September 21 2010An interesting article "The Viral Lift" by Jonah Peretti, looks at how the results of bored office workers tweeting, blogging and emailing 'form a media distribution network bigger than NBC, BBC, or any traditional network.' Our illustration runs alongside the article in Contagious magazine.
September 28 2010
Welcome to our new website. 2010 was a busy year for us which meant that this site has taken us nearly all year to design, build and populate. An hour here and an hour there in-between client projects, and eventually we have a shiny new site... Although it feels out of date already because we have lots of amazing new work to share with you from the last couple of months.
We aim to keep the site updated with studio news and be sure to follow us elsewhere on the web (links at the foot of the site). Please do get in touch if you would like to work with us or for us, new talent and new projects are always greeted with enthusiasm.
Enjoy, Team Crush x
Faber & Faber 2011
September 20 2010We are very proud to have designed the Faber & Faber catalogues for January to June 2011. This is the fifth year we have produced their catalogues and over the years they have become a design beacon within the publishing industry (another one of our clients told us this!). This year we have pared back the creative and delivered a stylish classic design complete with silver inks and debossed cover.
