Laura Groves - Inky Sea

You're in luck, two posts in one day! This time it's something new from Laura Groves, a haunting song called Inky Sea.

Shake It Off

I will forever champion The Spinto Band, I think they constantly create great music. Here hot off the press is their new video for Shake It Off, from their latest album Cool Cocoon.

"I've had enough i'm unhappy with dreaming, shake it off i'm leaving"

Lacoste Poster

A few months ago, I was asked to design some posters for Lacoste, it is their 80th birthday this year. The posters were designed to reflect the heritage of the brand. I created a number of variations, this is my favourite, it is based on the '80' logo created by Peter Saville (bottom left) with two tennis balls and the old wooden racket that Rene Lacoste used... the poster was released in time for Roland Garros in France hence the clay/red background.

This is a signed working proof framed up... 

When printing in the studio from mac, I print each colour separately through a wide format printer, this is the only way I have found to get the real feel of the print working and the colours sitting together or overprinting properly.
