Stylish Stokey!

We have some colleagues amongst us who'd argue they're the most stylish in the CIA office but they don't really live in Stoke Newington anymore, so surely Sarah our finance guru is in the lead? Sorry Ben. 

 

Jitesh Patel's recent hand drawn piece mapped out the fashion and style of one of our favourite neighbourhood's for Metropolitan Magazine. We think the composition in this right on the money!

Takes Two, To Mango

It take two to make a thing go ri-iiight. Actually it doesn't, it only takes one talented hand-drawn type artist (amongst other illustrative abilities) known as Sarah J Coleman or Inky Mole to get you all in a summery spin. Typography for Wild Bean cafe with TBWA Manchester for a tropical summer campaign. We'd like some of this mango business please!
