Anyone seen this sticker?

The new issue of Creative Review contains a sticker specially designed for us by Peter Saville. The theme of the issue, guest edited by Mother, is selling out: part of that is a discussion of the degree to which those working in visual communications “prostitute” themselves.

The new issue of Creative Review contains a sticker specially designed for us by Peter Saville. The theme of the issue, guest edited by Mother, is selling out: part of that is a discussion of the degree to which those working in visual communications “prostitute” themselves.

Saville’s sticker, which is just under A4 size, was inspired by a sign that he spotted on a door in Meard Street in London’s Soho. The beautifully crafted plaque adorns the door of one of a row of Georgian houses on the street – rather like a traditional sign warning of hawkers, except this being Soho, its target is people looking for business of a different sort.

Since the issue went out last week, the sticker has begun to turn up in various locations around the country. If you spot it, please take a picture and email it to patrick.burgoyne@centaur.co.uk and we will post it up here.

Serif also spotted this one on a local pub. Apparently it used to be a brothel

Also included in the February issue are two A1 posters. One is an Illustrated Diagram of the Mortal Soul by Adam Dant.

The other is by Mother themselves.

Super, Smashing, HATE!

Eighteen London-based artists were invited to illustrate their pet hate in circular form so all the images produced could be screenprinted onto dartboards. The result is 180 Things I Hate About You – a new exhibition of the screenprinted dartboards which will run at London’s Dazed and Confused Gallery, 112-116 Old Street, from 15 February – 14 March. Here’s a sneaky preview of some of the work…
