Michelin Print Campaign

There’s something to be said for a brand so well known that advertising it doesn’t even require a logo. It’s a bold move, but it’s definitely a memorable one!

This work by TBWA\CHIAT\DAY New York does just that. Using the recognisable hands of the Michelin man, this print campaign shows how Michelin tyres can help keep you on the road.

We love it!

Garth Walker Publication Workshop

The ever-amazing Garth Walker recently held a publication workshop with our 3rd years, with the project name: Experience lived, experience interpreted, experience defined.

A multi-disciplinarian in the branding and design arena, Garth Walker is the brain behind i-Jusi magazine; which highlights the very best of South African design and illustration.

You can check out the work our 3rd years produced below.

And you can learn more about Garth Walker on his website here.



Tiago Majuelos – Illustration

Who said you shouldn’t reimagine Greek gods as FMCG products? If you thought you’d never read a sentence like that, congratulations – we never thought we’d write one!

This body of work by Tiago Majeulos is a modern take on Greek mythology, with household products as a lens through which to view these tales. We love the simplified style, which in fact harks back to traditional ancient Greek drawing and art.

Weird? Yes. Awesome? Absolutely.

Stellenbosch Academy Student wins the Street Art Meets Climate Change Challenge.

It seems the good news just keeps on coming for us this week! We’ve just heard that Lene van Heerden has won the ‘Street Art Meets Climate Change’ Challenge. The goal of the competition is to make messaging around climate change more relevant to the youth, with a style that is more interesting than pure facts or messaging.

After being named one of three finalists, Lene was the overall winner with her submissions, included below. Well done!

Havaianas – Made of Brazilian Summer

Havaianas is such a fun brand to work on. With colour, happiness and the essence of ‘Brazil’ in their brand DNA, it’s a license to really go out there and make bold, fun ads.

These print ads by AlmapBBDO Brazil are no exception. They’re bright, fun and exciting and best of all – they really capture the joy of Havaianas flip flops!

(On that note, can it be summer yet?)
