SomeOne pours another one

News

More great work from SomeOne, this time it’s 40% proof. You might be forgiven for thinking that in the last week DJ had become some sort of an unofficial media outlet for SomeOne… pause to think what that world might be like… but the truth is they’re just spitting out great stuff at the moment, like it’s going out of fashion. Five eclectic projects have vaulted out of the their door in a matter of days, […]

Hammersmith in vogue, SomeOne style

News

SomeOne have been at it again – another glorious piece of destination branding – hot on the heels of giving Victoria the once over. Introducing, the SomeOne ensemble’s take on 10 Hammersmith Grove, a spanking new state-of-the-art building in the eponymous district, boasting a wondrous assemblage of impressive features; rooftop gardens to roaring open fire in the reception and public realm areas. Tasty. Quick bit of background; Hammersmith is within easy reach of Heathrow / the West End, highly […]

When Victoria met SomeOne…

News

Times, they are a’changin for London’s Victoria district. Mainly, with significant investment and development encompassing, amongst other things, a vast increase in public space across an 81,800sqm site right opposite the station. The plan is to embrace a diversity of retail, residential and office space, along with a four-storey library to serve the local community. There’s other developments in the pipeline too, but the challenge that really faced the troupe at SomeOne, was how do you encapsulate an […]

Matthew Dawson {London}

Illustrators

We’re such a big fan of the charming work by the hand of freelance illustrator Matt Dawson. His clients have included Penguin Books, Nickelodeon and Leapfrog and has just illustrated his first book for the kiddies “There’s a Lion in My Bathroom: Nonsense Poetry for Children”, authored by Giles Paley-Phillips for Rebel Books. Handsomely put by the man himself; “Every project has it’s own special considerations but I generally find you cannot go far wrong if you aim to raise […]

THIS IS Studio {London}

Awesome agencies

So you know that bit in Jerry Mcguire when Renee Zelwegger says to Tom Cruise ‘you had me at hello’ … well the moment I saw that someone at THIS IS Studio drink Malvern Water (bottled from my hometown) I was sold! It’s kinda the same. As for the work… well where do you start? THIS IS Studio appear to be able to turn their hand to just about anything, from crafting a mark to knitting […]

Heroes – Sean Perkins {North}

Heroes

Design heroes, we all have them. Designers from the past or present that we become a little bit obsessed with. In a good way. It’s a bit like a favourite band we try and collect every piece of their work, we hunt down out of print copies of their monographs, buy posters of their work, bookmark every site that mentions them. There are plenty of books out there that feature the more well known designers, […]
