New Artist Ruby Taylor!

It's Friday, and what better way to send you off into the weekend than with a new artist announcement! Ruby Taylor collects inspiration in everything around her, but is especially drawn to old printed ephemera, vintage illustration and hand painted signage. Colour plays an important role in her work and each colour palette is meticulously selected resulting in her distinctive style full of warmth and fun in equal measure. She has worked with clients such as Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, Tory Burch and Adidas.

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. Until then, here's some brand illustration, some delicious yoghurt and some super huge lovin' from us.

The Vegan Redemption

A to V: The Encyclopedia of Vegan Food .

Nishant Choksi illustrated a guide for vegans and the curious omnivore for NY magazine. You can find ‘meatless meatballs' recipes, great places to eat vegan and even a plant based pet food brand for your super cool vegan dog. In the last 3 years, the number of American vegans increased by 500% (1% to 6%). “Plant-based” restaurants are blooming all over the country, not only in America but also in England. So, are you gonna give up the chops or are you against the trend? Steak is so 2016…*reaches for sausage roll*
