Love & Yoghurt

It's Valentines day, hoorah. I'm sure we are expected to show you some kind of humorous satirical piece on the perils of romance because, y'know, we're funny like that. This year we're making a change, getting cute and showing off a spectacular project by a truly tremendous artist. Aitch has worked with Chobani to create a fully fledged campaign for their rebrand and release of their latest product. You can see her work beautifully animated over here.

Not so Scary

You probably know Stephen Collins for his hilarious weekly comics for The Guardian Weekend, well here are more hilarious Comics for a less hilarious topic. 'Time To Talk' is a campaign aiming to break the silence around mental health problems and encourage everyone to talk about it. We are proud to see one of our illustrators fighting for the good cause and doing it so well. Just because we can’t see the ailment, doesn’t mean we should hide away and cope in silence. So, get chatting and ask your friends how they’re doing. Conversation is a cure!

Rock, Paper, Scissors

The paper craft wizard, Andy Singleton, has been commissioned to create a cover design for Easyjet inspired by their feature on Estonia and its magical expanse of forest. Andy has hidden a Wolpertinger in the landscape, a Easter European mythical hybrid creature of a rabbit with antlers, fangs, wings and webbed feet. Be careful out in those woods on your own! Known for his large installations for luxury brands, it’s great to see Andy’s work realised in three dimensional splendour wrapped into a small scale narrative.
