Random Acts for Channel4

Bold & Bold with 4 Creative

Bold & Bold have created a lovely glitchy identity for Channel 4’s short form film series Random Acts in collaboration with 4 Creative. In particular it’s a really clever use of the new Channel 4 brand typeface Horseferry – flipping between the various cuts of the type to create a random glitchy feel to all text. Also the RA condensed monogram for social media is such a simple reduction.

Agatha Christie stamps

Studio Sutherl& Neil Webb

Royal Mail have released a set of six commemorative stamps to mark the centenary of Agatha Christie writing her first detective story. The stamps, designed by Studio Sutherl& and illustrated by Neil Webb, depict a complex plot in one single frame, together with hidden clues only revealed with UV light, heat, in negative space or by using a magnifying glass.

A refreshing approach to a new brand and range of drinks from David Folkman and Craig Jones (Ex Innocent Drinks). &Smith’s identity showcases the work of young YCN illustrators Enrica Casentini, Ana Jaks and Quentin Mongue. Clever copy by ‘We all need words’ describes the ‘better-for-you-cordial’, Elderbrook doesn’t pretend to be full of your five-a-day, turn you into a yogi in one sip, or give you Popeye’s muscles. But it does taste good!

I don’t usually upload our own work, but the great thing about being a partner at Mucho is constantly being impressed and envious of work that gets produced by other partners and offices. This identity in particular by Marc Catala hits the nail on the head. An identity to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the death of Cervantes. What else could it have been? And getting those curves/ruffles just right isn’t as easy as it looks!
