  • Last year we created the brand identity for Seedy Sonics, a promotion outfit that hosts cross-genre parties at the Rainbow Warehouse in Birmingham. We created the icon from interlocking triangles, and applied the same geometric styling

  • throughout all ongoing print and web communications. The industrial typography and rigid structure was chosen as a nod to the warehouse venue they occupy in the city. Keep up to date with all things Seedy HERE.

  • 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.

  • Since beginning work with Boxpark Shoreditch in May 2103 we have redesigned all aspects of their onsite communication and signage. We created a consistent visual language that runs through all printed assets whether it be

  • the onsite event posters or a simple no smoking sign. Once the onsite assets were complete we applied the same structure to a range of large format street hoardings, and an installation in Shoreditch Overground station.

  • Boxpark Shoreditch asked us to collaborate with Aroe MSK to curate the event Bomb The Box. The aim was to utilise the cobbled area outside Boxpark in order to generate maximum footfall for the pop-up mall over the summer months. We arranged for a 20ft shipping container to be painted white and craned in, then got to work with Aroe to organise two overseas

  • graffiti artists to paint the box each Sunday afternoon for six weeks. The project was a huge success, giving the public an opportunity to watch world famous writers showcasing their craft on a legal site. Bomb The Box gained national and international media reviews, and if you missed the events you can watch the weekly videos by Fidget Media HERE.

  • We recently teamed up with our pals at Future Deluxe to produce a short film promoting the launch of Filthy Black Italic (our in-house font soon to be on sale via HypeForType). We commissioned a specialist prop company to create two models, one of our logo (which was the starting point for FBI) and a second made up of ligatures from the letters j,n,c & Y.

  • We used the models, eight litres of black treacle, a paddling pool, two projectors, and our lovely friend Mumbi to capture the raw footage, while Spectrasoul have been working away in the studio on a bespoke soundtrack.

Hot Damn Son!

Hot_Damn_Logo

ATM_1

  • Initially an underground genre, trap music first experienced mainstream exposure in 2003 after the success of a number of landmark albums. In 2012, a new movement of electronic music producers and DJs emerged who began incorporating elements of trap music into their works. Many producers, especially dubstep and moombahton producers, began incorporating trap elements into their sound. This helped expand its popularity among electronic music fans.

  • A number of stylistic offshoots of trap developed, which in the latter half of 2012 gained a rise in viral popularity and made a noticeable impact on dance music. Hailing from Nottingham - the record label Hot Damn have been promoting the genre through nation-wide parties, compilations & merchandise for the past 2 years. Above is record label identity we created, and the latest teeshirt design, derived from a sample / slogan synonymous with the genre.
