Last week was a big week here at JWHQ. We got to share the thrilling, Emmy-award winning news* that we've produced our very own children's activity book and it will be available in just a few weeks. Thanks, Thames & Hudson! Look out for the OFFICIAL LAUNCH AT LAMINGTON DRIVE HAPPENING VERY SOON (said in a very loud but not at all obnoxious voice). We also checked out Andrea Innocent's show, Otoshimono, at No Vacancy Gallery and watched Gemma O'Brien host some sassy hand-lettering workshops. Speaking of Gemma, she created a custom typeface for Angus & Julia Stone's self-titled album and it was nominated for best cover art at the 2014 ARIA Awards. Who needs an Emmy, anyway? Emma Leonard created super sweet illustrations and positive mantras for Sportsgirl's affirmation journal and we got into the spirit of Tasmania with Eirian Chapman. Oh, and if you know anyone looking for an art/retail space, our former home at The Compound Interest has some spaces coming up. All the hard yards have already been done with council and fit-out, so go ahead and check out photos and fine-print here. Have a great week. Love always - jw.
*No actual Emmy's won.
Gemma O’Brien created a custom typeface for Angus & Julia Stone‘s new self-titled album, released last August and produced by the legendary Def Jam Records founder, Rick Rubin. It has now been nominated for Best Cover Art at the 2014 ARIA Awards. Gemma previously created the type for Julia Stone’s solo album By the Horns and, well, the girl’s type needs no hype. She just goes from best to best, and we’re so proud of her that we’re feeling a bit giddy and might need a lie-down.
Emma Leonard for Sportsgirl + The Butterfly Foundation
Oct 06, 2014 10:06 am
Emma Leonard worked with clothing superstore Sportsgirl to create artwork for a Hopes, Dreams & Goals Journal as part of their ongoing partnership with The Butterfly Foundation. Since 2006, Sportsgirl + The Butterfly Foundation have undertaken incredible work to assist those affected by eating disorders and negative body image. As well as raising a cool $1.7 million, Sportsgirl has incorporated a permanent capsule collection of accessories called ‘The Butterfly Range’ into its brand. Emma created over 50 illustrations for these brilliant affirmation journals as well as two unique tote bags. You can buy ‘em either online or in the bricks-n-mortar stores. All proceeds go towards supporting The Butterfly Foundation. Bonus!—read an interview with Emma here.
Eirian Chapman worked with The Company You Keep and Broadsheet to help illustrate a travel story on Spring in Tasmania. She created a map which marks out its key landmarks, windswept beaches, boutique beverages and artisanal produce … maybe it’s time you popped over to see some ancient rainforests, woodland lakes, towering mountains and—of course—MONA?
And that's your lot for this week. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodbye til it be morrow,
