Derbyshire’s finest Drenge play Academy 2 in Dublin tomorrow evening. We asked the lads about a month ago if they’d like us to design and print a short run of posters for the gig and they kindly agreed. Since working together on the Scroobius Pip poster last year, Matt Griffin and I had been due another collaboration and this one seemed just right. After batting around a few different concepts this one kind of fell together – make your own mind up about what it’s about because I haven’t the foggiest to be honest.
Limited number of copies are on sale here.
I was recently asked to work on a novel screenprinting project by the nice folks at The Small Print for 3FE Coffee and their shop on Lower Grand Canal Street, Dublin. 3FE use such a wide and changing variety of coffee beans in their shop each week that they needed a menu display system that would allow them to update and re-arrange both coffee names and prices on a regular basis. To fit in with the look and feel of the store was another key factor in the design, as was including their already established identity colours (courtesy of designers Conor and David).
Reillys Pharmacy on Thomas Street, recently asked me to look at re-branding their small business which has been serving the Dublin 8 community for nearly 20 years. They wanted an identity that reflected their location – right next to Christchurch Cathedral. After a few draft logos they settled on this one and the branding was applied to stationery, loyalty cards, carrier bags and eventually a website.
The good people at Damn Fine Print and The Light House Cinema organised an Edgar Wright / Cornetto Trilogy weekend in Dublin last weekend. To tie in with a series of screenings at the cinema, they asked 5 local artists to design a poster each for an Edgar Wright related production. The artists were Alé Mercado (Spaced), Steve Doogan (Shaun of the Dead), Fatti Burke (Scott Pilgrim), Steve McCarthy and myself (Hot Fuzz). Alan Dunne also created a fantastic poster for the overall event. Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost made an appearance on Monday for a brief Q&A and signed 5 copies of the prints while they were at it.
The good folk at Word of Mouth Agency in Cork recently asked me to design a tour poster for their annual The Certain Three tour. This year’s bands are Nanu Nanu, Si Schroeder and Trumpets of Jericho. The tour starts January 17th and will be hitting Limerick, Cork, Clonakilty, Myrtleville, Dundalk, Sligo, Dublin, Galway, Athlone, Kilkenny and finally Belfast – a fair trek indeed!
