We were asked to contribute to Edition Two of the brilliant Brick Magazine OUT TODAY. For a feature on Phife Dawg, following his death earlier this year, we designed a typographic piece with one of his verses from A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Clap Your Hands’
Good little write up of the project via It’s Nice That

As part of the identity we put together a few short motion tests that were later used to build out a short video projected internally to list out the event schedule.
We’ve been working with designjunction since 2011 on their identity, digital presence and environmental signage.
Thanks to @quingwinn for being better with her camera than us.

A couple of weeks ago we were out at SB Studio’s 100/100 Beer project, this Wednesday we followed up with a whiskey chaser at the opening of longtime friends Galvin Brothers’ pop-up bar installation at The Reverend JW Simpson in Goodge Street, London.
The space is furnished with Galvin Brothers’ new Whiskey Drinking Collection and is the culmination of a three month collaboration with The Jameson Works, which is a great project about sharing the stories behind modern craft and offering bursaries to young designer-makers (find out more about the project here). The installation is open in London for the next few weeks so head down and try a couple of the whiskey cocktails developed especially for the brothers.

It’s end-of-play Friday and it’s probably time for a beer. On Wednesday night we popped down the road to the Protein space in Shoreditch for the 100/100 Beer Project. Organised by the brilliant SB Studio and with contributions from more brilliant designers than you can fit in a boozer, we were proud to be a part of it all and to find ourselves right at the front (near the bar). Buy the beautiful book that Benji and the team at SB designed here and help put money in the jar for ArtFund.
