Sign up to the newsletter yourself for a regular dose of industry inspiration and more headline-stealing headers.

The Commonwealth Games have been keeping our artists busy. Tim Marrs has produced this vivid set of stamps for the Royal Mail to commemorate the event. They'll certainly be a highlight of his two decade-long stamp collection (oh yes…) Keep your eyes peeled for them on a parcel near you!

After a visit to the Royal Mile Whiskey shop in Edinburgh (which, as far as meetings go, seems a pretty damn good place to have one), Sarah J Coleman went home to design a new identity and bottle labels for the shop and their distillery. She came up with these elegant, personalised typographic pieces, and then wrote a lovely blog post about her creative process. Cheers!

Rose Blake has done a series of illustrations for The Groucho Club, famous for it's celebrity membership and extensive art collection. We're enjoying the little bit of CIA/family meta illustration going on with her little characters gathered around a piano painted by Sir Peter Blake.

Richard has jut completed this piece for New Scientist magazine discussing whether to priotise conservation efforts for certain high risk species. We're not sure how these chaps got into this particular predicament but they might be in for a bit of a shock down at the Docks.

They say two heads are better than one, Becky and Louise of Good Wives and Warriors have made a couple of videos explaining just why that is. They're promoting a new book cover design they've completed for Random House for The Incarnations by Susan Barker. It's a beautiful piece... so come on in, put the kettle on, and meet the makers themselves.

We've popped up a few new pieces by Darren Hopes. In particular this piece commissioned by the Times T2 to illustrate a part of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, who is in fact not Robert Galbraith, but J.K.Rowling... confused? Well, all we know is there are no wizards in sight. We love the atmospheric, film-noir feel about the piece.
