Justin Currie ‘What is Love For’ 12″
10th Jan 2019
It’s 10 years since we designed what became the first of the four album covers we’ve created for ex-Del Amitri man Justin Currie.
‘What is Love For’ was released on New York’s Ryko Records and Justin has just regained the rights to the recording allowing him to release a limited edition vinyl version, giving us the chance to see our art direction and Mark Seager’s photography in all its intended 12″ glory.
Sigma Films Identity
19th Sep 2018
We created a brand new animated identity for leading Scottish production company – and long time collaborators – Sigma Films. The brief asked for symbols and animation that would ‘decode the DNA of film’. We took inspiration from the electro mechanical rotor Enigma Cipher, spinning circular shutters, and early pre-film animation techniques, resulting in an animated ‘film cipher’.
We got to see it on the big screen at the Edinburgh International Film Festival premiere of Sigma’s latest release, Outlaw King, which is now available to stream on Netflix.
