Filthy Viral Posters

#stayhomebrighton

Posted on: 20.05.2020

This project started as an antidote to the grave language of Government warnings and anxiety-inducing media reporting. While recognising the seriousness and importance of the British lock-down, we wanted to post some hopeful humour back on the streets of our home in Brighton.

Mixing the stoic British attitude of looking on the bright side, with some hard sarcasm and a hint of satire, we created a series of typographic posters covering topics from politics, climate change, home-working and living in Worthing.

Embracing the current restrictions, the posters were printed at home and pasted up around Brighton city centre; giving new life to cancelled gig posters and boarded up shop-fronts. #stayhomebrighton reinforced the importance of the message and allowed us to track levels of engagement.

Filthy Seagull Display

— A bespoke typeface for Brighton FC

Posted on: 10.08.2018

Ahead of Brighton's first game of the season, we've a designed the club a new typeface — Filthy Seagull Display. We are immensely proud of our local club and our hometown of Brighton, so we decided to create a typographic campaign that celebrates their second season in the Premiere League. Using one of thier famous chants as the basis for our posters, Filthy Seagull Display is a typeface full of imperfections and character, a true reflection of the city we call home.

For any Brighton fans out there, they are yours to print out and paste up. You can download the posters HERE.

Update 01.10.18 — We are very proud to announce that the club have commissioned us to use Filthy Seagull Display on a 200 square metre typographic installation at the Falmer Stadium.
