Art, Graphic Design, Illustration

Posted by Gavin Lucas, 15 November 2012, 10:56    Permalink    Comments (3)

For its third annual exhibition, Creative agency Mill Co has once again teamed up with a sponsor and tasked a selection of image makers to create new work. This year it has teamed up with The Co-operative and the brief to the 25 contributing artists was 'Co-operation'…

The resulting exhibition runs at the Mill Co Project  until November 23 and features work by Calverts (its contribution, shown above), Patternity, Tom Frost and Kavel Rafferty, and more.

Here are a selection of images

Many Hands by Claire Scully

by Toby Stevens

by A Two Pipe Problem

Working Together by Tom Frost

This piece by David Hazell of Curious Projects "looks at the creation of new colours through the co-operation of coloured blocks".

Above, TwoSomes by Patrick Fry and Tom Willis is, they say, "a series of prints bringing together similar sounding words that, when all said and done, are worlds apart. A contextual juxtaposition is used to illustrate the distinction."

Hive by Rebecca Maeve Manley

The show runs until November 23 at the Mill Co Project, Mandarin Wharf, 70-76 De Beauvoir Crescent, London N1 5SB.

The issue also doubles up as the Photography Annual 2012 – our showcase of the best images in commercial photography produced over the last year. The work selected is as strong as ever, with photographs by the likes of Tim Flach (whose image of a hairless chimp adorns the front cover of the issue, above); Nadav Kander (whose shot of actor Mark Rylance is our Photography Annual cover); Martin Usborne; Peter Lippmann; Giles Revell and more.

I agree with Mr. Food the bees is awesome- I'll take a couple of these examples as inspiration on my site as I'm sure I can use them as interesting talking point at pitch meetings.
