GOOGLE CREATIVE LAB / STARBUCKS
I was commissioned by Google Creative Lab to design a holding page for Starbucks wifi. The brief was to make it look friendly / fun... and have a 'Google' vibe. It had a mega quick weekend turnaround too. Unfortunately they used another direction in the end- but I was pleased with the outcome.

DOBERMAN / GOOGLE
Some illustrations I worked on recently for a Google pitch. The client wanted the illustrations to look clean and graphic. They wanted to show both Brooklyn and Seattle in the day and night- with reusable elements... they didn't want the images to look too like Brooklyn or Seattle- which was a challenge. Also I had just over a day to turn this around. In the end the client went with a different, more photographic solution.

I was really pleased to be asked by Richard Turley to hand draw a cover for the American Illustration 32 book.
Here is an article about the project on It's Nice That: http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/richard-turley-american-illustration-32

I did these illustrations for an interactive app for Hounslow Council- to show children and teachers about health and safe ways of getting to school. Part of the brief was that the letters 'JTA' and 'JRSO' had to feature prominently in the illustration. They also link up, so when placed side by side the scene continues.

THE SUNDAY TIMES MAGAZINE- MY DREAM SUNDAY
I was asked by the brilliant Sophie Dutton at The Sunday Times magazine, to draw another panel for the Dream Sunday feature. Recently the drawing club girls had shown me the amazingly weird Victorian dinosaurs in Crystal Palace, so I drew that. Here it is in print, sharing a page with Piers Morgan :-/ :

THE BOSTON GLOBE- BABY BOOMERS PACKAGE
Last week I worked on this package for The Boston Globe, accompanying lots of articles about baby boomers in America.
Top - Bottom:
Rethinking The Golden Years: Opening article characters and motorbike spot
Downsizing Doomsday: Why some experts worry a mass sell-off of sprawling suburban homes could stall the housing market.
On (and on and on) The Job: Despite reaching social security age, a generation is finding the new secret to a happy retirement: don't.
My Mother, Our New Life: Personal essay about the high costs of caring for an elderly parent.
Two's Company, Three's Even Better: When it comes to living arrangements, boomers are determined to get by with a little help from their friends.
I also found out that they had chosen to go for an illustrated cover while I was working on these.
This was a great job to work on, as the art director was really up for playing with integrating the illustrations into the text.
Even though we had quite a short time to turn this round, I think the layouts have worked really nicely.
Here is the opener lady with a cooler haircut. I also managed to dress her in a Margaret Howell shirt that I want, and a nice Sophie Hulme handbag!
Here are the illustrations in print:

INT WORKS - UNILEVER
I recently worked with INT works to create the visuals for a Unilever presentation. The talk was split up into six sections with a visual theme for each. These were
An Empty Box
I used the same character throughout to show Unilever's viewpoint. These were then projected behind the speaker during the presentation.
After the presentation, INT works put the content into a little book for a memento:
Thanks to Julian and Rob for the brilliant art direction- made my job really fun!
