A Collective art project that gathers designers and artists from all over the globe to express their vision of an ordinary playing card. This is my Visio of the Ace Of Diamonds. Was a great opportunity to be apart of this collective.
This commissioned project to design and produce the packaging for a popular hot sauce in South Africa called Picante, total freedom was given in terms of deign and concept. This was an absolutely fantastic opportunity to explore and create a good narrative hidden in the form of packaging. We decided to go to the depth of the ocean and explore the mystique of dead sailors in lost seas.
What an honour it was to work with Maurice Lacroix, along side a Korean superstar Jang Dun Gun. His style and attitude is what makes him the perfect brand ambassador. The campaign features both Pontos lines from Maurice LaCroix, as well as another star range in the collection,the Pontos sports range, with its world renowned ambassador FCB of Barcelona.
This is a part of my personal zine project.
´´When travelling in impoverished regions in galling luxury, as I have done, you have to undergo some high-wire ethical arithmetic to legitimise your position. If you can’t geographically separate yourself from poverty, then you have to do it ideologically. You have to believe inequality is OK. You have to accept the ideas that segregate us from one another and nullify your human instinct for fairness.
Edward Slingerland, a professor of ancient Chinese philosophy at Stanford University, demonstrated this instinct to me with the use of hazelnuts. As we spoke, there was a bowl of them on the table. “Russell,” he said, scooping up a handful, “we humans have an inbuilt tendency towards fairness. If offered an unfair deal, we will want to reject it. If I have a huge bowl of nuts and offer you just one or two, how do you feel?”
The answer was actually quite complex. Firstly, I dislike hazelnuts, considering them to be the verminous titbits of squirrels. Secondly, they were my hazelnuts anyway; we were in my house. Most pertinently though, I felt that it was an unfair offering when he had so many nuts. He explained that human beings and even primates have an instinct for fairness even in situations where this instinct could be seen as detrimental. “You still have more nuts now than before,” he chirped, failing to acknowledge that all the nuts and indeed everything in the entire house belonged to me.´´

This LP sleeve is for a local band in South Africa called Blam. The cover design is aimed at showing their unique indi rock feel, and experimental music. Blame has just released their second debut album, and what a better time to really flex the drawing muscles.
Das kleine Kraut mit der grossen Wirkung wurde ursprünglich als Heilmittel bei Magenverstimmungen eingesetzt, geriet im Laufe der Zeit aber in Vergessenheit. Bis Engadiner Familien sich wieder erinnerten und iva zurückholten – aus den alten, verstaubten Rezeptbüchern ihrer Vorfahren. Sie verfeinerten die Rezeptur, stets darauf bedacht die wohltuende Wirkung beizubehalten – und machten den Kräuterlikör weit über die Grenzen des Engadins hinaus bekannt. Das Wildfräuleinkraut, wie iva im Bünderland auch genannt wird, fühlt sich hoch oben am wohlsten. In der Nähe von Gletschern auf Steinschuttfluren oder zerpflückten Wiesen in alpiner Höhe auf über 2000 ü.d.M.

This is the Corporate identity of Robot Republic. A brilliant idea to re-brand the children's television network called Robot Republic, aiming to towards a young teen audience. This network had to remain fun, exciting, dynamic, yet serious and functional.
Nissan Juke Music Festival
happening in JBay South Africa. We were approached to created an animated version of the Nissan Juke radio ad that is currently running on 5FM. StraightTwisted worked closely with us and briefed us saying that they were looking for two pigeon characters that start beat boxing as the Juke drives past.
