• Wall artwork for Byron Haymarket

    for Michaelis Boyd Architects

    Architects Michealis Boyd spotted our ‘London Type Map’ screen print in Elle Decoration and thought it was just the ticket for their client’s new central London restaurant. They commissioned us to create a 9m x 4m wallpaper of the map for Byron’s new restaurant at Haymarket in London.

  • Book commissions

    for Publishers worldwide

    Publishing is where it all began for David. Since his first job in the Art department of Harper Collins he’s created over 1000 book covers. Anything from established authors like JG Ballard and Agatha Christie to new writers with their debut novels.

  • Christmas lettering

    for John Lewis and Waitrose

    Retailer John Lewis approached us to create lettering for their Christmas stores, products and packaging. We created illustrated characters as part of a “collaborative alphabet” along with a handful of other designers. The designs had to be decorative but legible enough to shine out from the shelves.

  • Wildlife of Devon Artwork

    for The Devon Wildlife Trust

    Devon Wildlife Trust saw our Birds around Britain design and asked us to create a print highlighting the wonderful Flora and Fauna in Devon. Each print was hand printed in a choice of three colourways and they’re available to buy from Devon Wildlife Trust shops.

  • Ruark R1 Artwork

    for Ruark Audio

    Ruark Audio music systems are regarded as design classics. We joined forces with this great British Institution to create an artwork celebrating their love of music and sound. The ‘Made for Music’ design was applied to t-shirts and wall artworks for Ruark to gift to its customers and stockists in support of the Nordoff Roberts charity.

  • Mid-Century Inspired Tea Towels

    for The Collection Boutique, Paris

    As well as stocking our prints, The Collection commissioned us to create an exclusive set of tea towels for sale in their shop and online store. Mid-century homewares was the theme, and we enjoyed spending hours researching and being inspired by the patterns and shapes of the era.

  • Simmons Café

    for Simmons Bakery

    Simmons Bakers are a local treasure, they've been baking since 1838 and have 30 bakeries dotted around Hertfordshire. They approached us to help them tell the story of their brand and boy was there some great stuff to shout about. We created a series of typographic artworks for their new look stores and cafés.

Commission us

From book covers, to tea towels, to twenty-foot walls

Before we started making screen prints, we worked as designers and illustrators — we love the magic of designing bespoke pieces that bring original ideas to life. We work with private, commercial and non-profit clients, including publishers, retailers, restaurants and wildlife trusts. Our design work appears all over the place: from book covers, to tea towels, to twenty-foot walls.

If you have a special project or collaboration in mind, we’d love to talk. Anything goes…
