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.

hat-trick design have been creating beautiful Lest We Forget remembrance stamps for the Royal Mail since 2006. They’ve taken the humble poppy and elevated it to art form over and over with these wonderful designs and clever collaborations – working with everyone from photographer John Ross to artist Howard Hodgkin. And this years remembrance stamp in collaboration with photographer Giles Revel is just stunning. One icon but so many ideas – amazing. Can’t wait for next years.
