Burrill Lands Plane At Priestman Goode

Illustrator and designer Anthony Burrill created this life-size painting of a plane for the offices of design studio Priestman Goode. The two, who have collaborated before, say they have a mutual interest in simple design and technology, both of them producing work which is pared down and pure in its aesthetic, so Burrill seemed a natural choice when Priestman decided to brighten up his studio wall.

“Priestman Goode design aeroplane interiors, amongst lots of other things, so it was a good subject for their office,” says Burrill.

“I worked with scale drawings of the building to develop the design, he continues. “When it came to putting the drawing onto the wall we drew a huge grid (with the aid of a very tall scaffolding tower) and plotted out the drawing by hand using the grid as reference. Then it was all hand painted. It took ages!”

Craste animates Guinness

Marc Craste, the director behind the beautiful short JoJo in the Stars and the recent Lloyd’s Bank ad campaign campaign, has created two new ads for Guinness to coincide with the Rugby World Cup.
The campaign, created by Bern Hunter and Mike Bond at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, is a straightforward one, and simply shows two opposing rugby teams pitched in an animated battle. Guinness is not an official sponsor of the tournament, yet the brand has managed to avoid breaching the official rights of the sponsor, Heineken, by creating animated players and therefore not featuring any imagery of real players. And quite lovely they look too. To view Guinness Play White, click here

The intractable design v art debate may have become stale but it’s always intriguing to see what happens when artists become obsessed with the tools of the graphic arts.
