  • 2014 has been a busy year at filthy and we have lots of new projects to show you in the coming weeks. We’ve also been working on our new website, a filthy online shop and have a 10 year exhibition planned for 2015. In the meantime we wanted to show you a snippet of some of our favourite projects from the past few

  • months. Above you can see our branding and application for the The Flour Pot Bakery in Brighton, the 10 Year of Shogun Audio box set, a fresh installation and creative direction for Boxpark Shoreditch and brand new compilation series created for Ram Records. So that’s it for 2014, we hope you have very filthy Christmas!

filthy Xmas Tree

  • A few weeks back Crush Creative got in touch as asked if we would like to create a Christmas Tree for their Glug Christmas charity auction. We set work, brainstorming ideas for a tree that someone could buy and use each year in place of a traditional tree. We’d been wanting to create something in neon for a while so using that as our starting point we sketched out a few simplistic, graphical representations of a christmas tree. When we were happy with the design we got in touch with Andy Doig at Fishtail Neon and

  • talked through our ideas. Once we got the thumbs up we needed something to house neon in so we dismantled a set of IKEA office drawers and packed the top off to have our design laser cut and wet sprayed before taking it down to Andy, who carefully worked the neon tube to our exact design before mounting it inside the casing to create the final tree. The auction itself was a great success with our trees raising over £2000 for local charity Emmaus. Find out more about the work they do in the local community HERE.

Godfrey Group

Building

  • We’ve been working with the Godfrey Group for a couple of years, and this year they asked us to design & build a website that could be applied to the three main arms of their business – Godfrey Investments, Godfrey Design & Build and Godfrey Living. Godfrey is a full service company: sourcing land or property to invest in (Investments), building and

  • redeveloping (Design & Build) before selling or letting through their boutique agency (Living). We worked with Brighton based photographer James French to capture a set of Brighton centric images that could be used throughout the websites which you can see above and there will be a full case study on all of our work for Godfrey in the new year.

  • Having completed an interior project for the First Names Group London office we’ve recently been working on similar projects for their offices in Amsterdam & Luxembourg. We needed large format photography to use throughout the interior wall manifestations, so we got in touch with London based architectural photographer Guy Archard. We’ve worked

  • with Guy on various shoots for our client Boxpark, and after a fair bit of research and few phone calls we briefed Guy and his assistant and off they went. A few days later Guy returned home and provided us with a stunning set of imagery to use, a few of which you can see above. There will be a full case study up on our website early next year.

  • We recently received a brief to design the interior for the new First Names Group office in London. Working to strict brand guidelines we took the company “Edge” logo and created a system which visually applied the company aesthetic through the reception area, two boardrooms, a hot design section and roof terrace.

  • We designed and art directed bespoke furniture, floor to ceiling wall manifestations, carpet compositions and overhead lighting installations. It was a huge challenge to take on a project of this nature and we now look forward to working on their new Dutch offices in the coming months.

Audio - Heads Up / Stampede

  • Ram Records got in touch and asked us to create the identity and first 12” single for their latest signing Audio. Audio’s production career stems from his time as the in-house engineer at rave distributor Alphamagic during the late 90’s, and to date he has released four albums - three of

  • those on the legendary Virus imprint. Clean lines and simple shapes were the order of the day to contrast his previous identities and unmistakable dark-art production techniques. With an album in the pipeline there will be lots more from us & Audio in the coming months.

  • Inspired by latex textures and curvaceous forms, Filthy Black Italic is a display typeface intended to be viewed at large sizes. The heavy weight and distinctive small serifs have created a typeface best used for headlines and titles, with many characters using rounded drops to emphasise the fluidity of the letters.

    To celebrate the launch of the font we teamed up with Brighton-based digital agency FutureDeluxe and music production duo Spectrasoul to create a promotional trailer that embodies the

  • new font, which can be viewed at www.filthyblackitalic.com

    We also produced a limited run of Letraset-inspired A3 Specimen Sheets to give away free with the first fifty purchases of Filthy Black Italic. Printed on 140GSM GF Smith Black Plike with spot UV varnish, they illustrate the high quality and style of the font, particularly when used at larger sizes.

    Filthy Black Italic is available to purchase exclusively from HypeForType.

  • Pioneer DJ’s ArtMix is a fundraising program bringing together top global DJs, urban artists and leading lifestyle brands to create original artwork using Pioneer’s industry standard CDJ-2000 Nexus as the canvas. All the proceeds are going to VH1’s Save The Music Foundation to support the restoration of music education programs in public schools. Two of our clients - James Zabiela (Born Electric) & Nervo were invited to submit CDJ’s to this years

  • auction, and we were asked to customise their entries for them. For James Zabiala’s CDJ (Above) we sprayed the deck matt black and designed an asset sheet which was then cut from glow-in-the-dark vinyl and applied by hand to the CDJ. For Nervo’s version we commissioned Brighton graduate Pete Sharp to create a denim jacket style patchwork design. More information and an overview of the all the entrants can be found HERE.

Final Shot

  • Off the back of Bomb The Box at Boxpark Shoreditch we convinced our landlord to allow Aroe MSK, Kcis & Sobek paint our Regent Street studio wall over two days this summer. Within five minutes the lads were back with a crate of paint and got straight to work. Aroe laid out his name

  • and began filling that while the Serbian twins composed their Space Owl around the lettering. They worked for roughly 20 hours over the two days, all in return for a few cups of tea, and little bit of help holding the ladder. If you’re in town come down and have a look for yourself.
