One Sun is a collection of seven plates and trays across which I retell a Chinese legend of the sun. It’s the story of how the rooster came to wear a red crown and why only one sun rises in our sky each day.
I produced a booklet to accompany the series to unlock the story, and bring greater meaning to the collection.
Forscherwelt ("Explorer World" in German) is a hands-on lab in Düsseldorf set up by Wonderlabz and Henkel to make science fun for kids.
The world is theirs to explore – climbing the tree by the glass house, scaling the mountain of knowledge and discovering its hidden cave filled with books.
I designed the identity (several interchangeable symbols of various complexity accompanied by a simple logotype), creating characters and populating the interactive wall.
Explorer and Explorina, as they came to be known, pop up throughout the world wearing their protective goggles and helmets, popping molecules, taking samples from the rainbow and falling with the rain.
For Puma's international mural sized in-store images, we projected patterns onto life sized cut outs and collaged the photographs together to create other worlds inspired by planets and pinballs.
The models (also shot by Marc Lecureuil) sat on and stepped through the props lending an air of believability to the surreal scenarios.
Smile Dental is a family and cosmetic dental practice in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia. Forget everything you know about dentists – Smile have their own vegetable garden and chickens and offer their clients bread fresh from their kitchen.
I have guided the growth and the evolution of the brand for over 16 years – from the initial naming and identity through to the ongoing production of applications (such as toothbrushes and stationery, to uniforms and signage) and the design and copywriting of print, radio and TV campaigns.
For the past two years we have been rebranding gradually, introducing an illustrative approach to all advertising and renovating the practice with a fresh new look and colour palette. The final stage will be the introduction of a new name and logo.
It was a marathon three day session – alongside the likes of The London Police, Dalek, Shoe and Ben Newman.
As part of the Dublin Fringe Festival, Absolut and The Small Print invited ten artists to an open workshop where we each painted a 2.5 metre/8 foot tall Absolut Bottle.
Da'Maha is an organic coconut water and New Zealand start up. The symbol is inspired by the Manaia – a Maori bird-human-fish representing the balance between sky, earth and water.
The product is certified organic and fairtrade and packaged in a recycled steel can which is BPA-Free.
Da'Maha encourage creative reuse of the cans – the photo above is from a particularly inventive customer.
On the walls, the seasons merge into one another while the animals sleep, blissfully unaware of their surroundings.
I painted the walls by hand and designed leaf scattered custom carpets. The curtains and bedspread were hand-dyed and appliquéd.
Challenging the traditional idea of hotel design, Hotel Fox in Copenhagen invited 20 artists onsite to create 60 different rooms – with very few restrictions aside from a strict budget.
In the tiny Sleep Seasons Room, I created a cosy nook where the visitors could "hibernate" in a bed covered by a tent.
The Museo del Prado in Madrid houses the Hieronymus Bosch masterpiece "The Garden of Earthly Delights".
I developed the museum's children's products based on the creatures in the painting – designing stationery, stuffed toys, tshirts, bags, ceramics and umbrellas.
For Pictoplasma's White Noise exhibition at La Casa Encendida in Madrid, the Missing Link takes a step down the evolutionary ladder to become a character selling nothing but White Noise.
I drew him based on Pictoplasma's costumed creatures, and Steve designed the package (which was used to both promote the show and as an installation as part of it).
