Fierce Whiskers is a new entrant to the whiskey market from Austin, Texas. To get their brand off the ground, they turned to The Butler Bros, an agency that specialises in naming, narrative and visual design. The good news: The Butler Bros did an incredible job. Through smart, insightful design they were able to create a brand that is at once premium, authentic and trustworthy. It has all of the design cues one might want from a whiskey, giving it a sense of heritage, but it also stays entirely on trend with current liquor design.

There’s nothing we love more than sharing the incredible work our students produce and this is one of those times when we get to do so.
The following images and designs were produced by our 3rd year Graphic Design students for their first brief of 2018. You can read more about the project directly from the lecturers below:
The first brief for the 3rd year Graphic Design students looked at Impact design, which is based on the impact that values and behaviours of human kind would have and has had on environments, society itself and economies. The students had to write their own stories deduced from a current issue but interpreted into fiction. This project therefore required that the students create a set of books, which was written, illustrated, hand bound and packaged by them reflecting life on planet Earth in the year 2018. The full exhibition can be viewed during OPEN DAY on the 3rd of March 2018.

Wow! What a great piece of multimedia design by Hook. This website, which was designed for YouTube Rewind 2017 (A kind of highlight video of all of YouTube’s best content for the year) has a great navigation design, which explains all of the memes, content and ridiculousness that made the year what it was.
You can check it out here.
Full marks if you get all the references!

Such a beautifully art directed and edited film from director Luca Finotti! Inspired by nothing but a T-shirt with the Versace logo on it, this film is the fit perfect for Valentine’s Day.

We love this! Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa collaborated with the Tawarasha Design Studio to create this beautifully illustrated Bird Handbook, highlighting some of the common birds that can be found in and around Tokyo.
Sadly they were never actually for sale and were handed out at a Tokyo Midtown event, so to all the people who have a copy, consider us very jealous!
We just held a bookbinding workshop for our 2nd and 3rd years, run by the incredibly talented Heléne van Aswegen who is a specialist artist book binder. She collaborates with professional artists to co-produce once-off or limited edition Artists’ Books (also known as Bookworks or Livre d’Artiste).

If you need to advertise an outdoor apparel company there are some standard things you can do – beautiful photographs of mountains, forests and streams or images of people ‘conquering’ the outdoors – but what if you take a different angle on it?
That’s exactly what Brad Advertising did – using the line: Weird things happen when you spend too much time indoors. What a great insight!
Then, to make the idea even more fun, they used a great illustration style and some really ridiculous situations to bring this idea to life.
We love it!
Such a great campaign by TBWA Zurich! McDonald’s Switzerland was launching a new app and to announce it – a print campaign was created where iconic McDonald’s menu items were illustrated as app icons.
Simple, smart and memorable – just the way we like it!
