Wow! Sophy Hollington is an illustrator from Brighton who believes in doing things the hard way, because it means a better result.
She specialises in lino-cuts, creating painstaking, detailed illustrations we absolutely love. Whether it’s slightly evil looking garlic (and why wouldn’t you want to illustrate that?) or gorgeous type, she’s at home and her style is just undeniable.

Sujin Kim is a South Korean illustrator who now lives and works in Japan. Her simple, funny illustration style is at once entirely contemporary and a bit of a throwback to 80s illustrators and comic artists like Ashleigh Brilliant. By the way if you haven’t looked at Ashleigh Brilliant’s work, we strongly suggest you do!

Jacco Bunt is an illustrator working out of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. We can’t get enough of his classically-inspired symmetrical style!

Our graphic design second year students were recently tasked to work on a real world client brief by Sugardbird Fynbos Gin. The ask was to design gift packaging and point of sale for retail. Rob Heyns, the co-founder and CEO of the brand shared his immense knowledge and expertise in the beer and craft gin industries with students, which set the tone for the work. With inspiration provided from the natural fynbos that is infused in Sugarbird gin, our students were able to come up with a wide range of incredibly creative solutions. These were all seen by Rob, who gave feedback to the students and chose a winning route.
The great news is: A number of these elements will be used in the final design, which will be hitting stores soon! If you see Sugarbird Gin in the bottle store this festive season, you’ll see the beautiful work created by our students. Don’t forget to buy a bottle!
Now this is how you incorporate design and illustration into one package!
This work by Shake Design for Ahava, an Israeli cosmetics company, celebrates 30 years of the company’s existence. To bring their concept of beauty, in all its forms, to life – they commissioned female artists to illustrate their understanding of beauty, which they then turned into packaging for the range.
We love this! It looks beautiful, it’s on brand and on top of it all it’s collectable. It doesn’t get any better!
What incredible news! We’ve just found out that our students have achieved six finalists for the Pendoring Awards 2018. We have a special affinity to these awards as they are all about African languages, Afrikaans included – which means our students get to communicate either in their own mother tongues, or stretch themselves to communicate in a new language, which is not easy!
Getting a finalist for the Pendorings is no mean feat – we are so proud!
You can check out all of their work on the Pendoring website below.

Well done everyone! We’ll be holding thumbs!
Burger King has a pretty strong differentiating factor when it comes to other large fast food burger chains, and that is that their burgers are all flame grilled. This campaign by Buzzman Paris for Burger King Belgium brings the flame-grilled factor right to the foreground! Using a bunch of smart illustrations, these ads show how important flames can be to make things more exciting. With the payoff line: Always better with fire – you very quickly see just what it is that makes Burger King different to all the others.
Great art direction and great thinking!
