Photographs from the 1950s

I have just done a small card for the photographer Bridget Bishop – which is not that interesting on its own but Bridget's images are. Working under the name of Cory Bevington, Bridget took amazing images of different aspects of life in post-war Britain. Lost Rural Industries, Lotus Car Factory, First Girl on a Mail Train, Nuns Working on a Farm… they are all a fascinating glimpse into a world that seems to have disappeared. There is also a great series on a solitary technician at Battersea Power Station on Christmas day. Have a look! bridgetbishop.co.uk

New book illustration

Just published by Pan Macmillian The Mindfulness Journal – a book of which I am the co-author with Corinne Sweet. Not because of my expertise in mindfulness but because I have done 60 (yes 60) full page illustrations for it. It is very pretty and the interior illustrations work really well on uncoated paper. You can see a small sample of the images below.













London Thinks




I have designed a new identity for an on-going series of debates and discussions to be held at Conway Hall called London Thinks. The logotype is a combination of a thought and speech bubble and the typeface is Futura. The design is clean and simple to always let the speakers and subject matter stand out.

I am very, very behind with uploading new work but anyway here is some of the packaging for the new range of 2014 products I have been working on with The School of Life. The coloured pencil set 'The Psycology of Colour' is very nice and comes with a little booklet too.

How to Series 2

These were out ages ago but I forgot to post them – second set of books in the series published by The School of Life and Pan Macmillan.  The colours are pretty zingy and the How to Age edition is silver. It is a great series to work on because everyone involved client, publisher and I – all work together to get a good result.

Life Lessons Book Series



















































I have designed a new series of books with The School of Life and Pan Macmillan. A set of pocket sized books features main ideas from great thinkers. Presented by different authors they show how these ideas are relevant today. Each cover is a landscape photograph that relates to the thinker. All the images have been manipulated and coloured and when lined up create a continuous horizon. A very nice box set version is coming too. Photos: Polite Company
