For the second year running, Transport For London (TfL) asked us to work with them and designjunction to curate a series of ten limited edition Oyster Card holders featuring original artwork by some of the UK’s most exciting image makers.

This year we were charged with commissioning brand new designs to mark the Year of the Bus – a celebration by TfL, London Transport Museum and London bus operators of the role that London buses and all the staff who support them play in keeping the capital moving. The YotB celebrations also tie in with the 60th anniversary of the original, iconic Routemaster; 75 years since the launch of its predecessor, the RT-type bus; and 100 years since dozens upon dozens of London buses were sent to the Western Front in Europe to play a vital role during the First World War.

Artists we commissioned to design Oyster Card wallets for the project include our own Edward Carvalho-Monaghan and Kristjana S Williams as well as eight artists we don't represent but greatly admire: Noma Bar, studio Mina Lima, Jean Jullien, Malika Favre, Kate Moross, Rod Hunt, Studio Emmi and Crispin Finn.

Single Oyster card holders will be priced at £6.99, with a full set of all 10 designs available at £60.

It's Ed Carvalho-Monaghan time!

Added on by Outline Agency.

The discerning folk at Mr Jones Watches have just announced the release of an exclusive watch design by Edward Carvalho-Monaghan. Entitled Psychedelic Sunsets, and available in a strictly limited edition of just 20 pieces, the watch’s face depicts a colourful and surreal landscape with the time itself shown - not by a show of two hands - but in a mini-vortex beneath the setting sun. Of course, we're hugely biased, but we think it’s the coolest watch ever. 

More info on the Mr Jones website.


Catwoman was a graphic designer

Added on by Outline Agency.

Creative Review magazine commissioned Rob Bailey to illustrate regular columnist Daniel Benneworth-Gray's piece in its September 2014 issue. The column bemoans the lack of graphic designer characters in movies but names one film that puts a designer front and centre: Catwoman. And so Rob's illustration show's Catwoman sat at a desk, hand-on-mouse, doing, you know, design stuff.

We're super thrilled to announce our latest signing: Paris-based illustrator Virginie Morgand.

Inspired by hands-on printing techniques and the things she collects, such as children’s books and collectible toys, Virginie uses hand drawn shapes and bright colours to create vibrant images full of life and energy. 

Virginie’s background is in animation but, having learnt how to screen print at L’atelier Dupont, she’s been developing her own visual language as an illustrator, working to brief for a growing number of clients. Recent projects include posters for Martigues music and dance festival, a children's book for book publisher MeMo, and magazine covers for Ballroom Review and Erratum. View her portfolio here.

Rob Bailey's Alpaca hug poster for TfL

Added on by Outline Agency.

Rob Bailey is one of six artists to have contributed to Transport For London’s new “without leaving London” campaign by advertising agency M&C Saatchi. Each artist was charged with the task of illustrating an unusual or unexpected destination in London and Rob’s poster shows a boy giving an alpaca a big hug and features the strap line, “Visit an alpaca without leaving London”, and names Newham City Farm, E6, as London's premier alpaca-visiting location along with a timeout.com/tfl web link to find out more about the six destinations featured in the campaign and dozens more.

The other contributing artists to the campaign are Stanley Chow, Daniel Frost, Jack Hudson, Jack Hughes and Miguel Montaner and their posters cover London's museum's, outdoor spaces, galleries and food markets. The campaign is currently running on outdoor poster sites, digital displays, press ads, radio and the aforementioned Time Out webpage at timeout.com/tfl

Look out for the digital display versions of the ads running on screens on the Underground. They are all very subtly animated and Rob's is particularly sweet: The boy can be seen to give the pictured alpaca a little squeeze. Really nicely done!
