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.

We Know What We Are

—But Know Not What We May Be

Posted on: 09.12.2019

As part of Filthy Thursdays; our self-initiated studio series, we’ve designed a fly-poster campaign, advertising a production of Hamlet specifically targeting theatres, museums and arts organisations.

We believe powerful & engaging work doesn’t have to be complicated, conform to what’s expected or break the budget. Using six iconic quotes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a grid system for structure and a single typeface for bold communication; this project shows what can be created from a few simple elements.

The campaign features the fictional 38-Gun Theatre, a name inspired by an early performance of the play. In 1607 the crew of the Red Dragon performed Hamlet while anchored off the coast of Sierra Leone. Built as a battleship in 1595 the Red Dragon was originally named the Scourge of Malice and was equipped with an arsenal of thirty eight guns.
