Jamie stops by the studio

Jamie stops by the studio

Great day with Jamie and his team working on a new project at our studio today, so exciting.

From Nicole Sherzinger to Lewis Hamilton, Bernie Ecclestone to the Crown Prince of Bahrain, Dolph Lundgren to Pierluigi Collina, the album makes us smile.

Jamie’s confidence and energy was so lovely to experience and a real inspiration to the team.

Judging a book by it’s cover I thought it would be a lovely piece of information design about the many different pasta types but I never imagined it to be a fully functioning cookbook.

Each year WCRS (BMW’s advertising agency) produces a tactical April Fool’s day advert which appears in the broadsheet press on April 1st only.
