Market day

I bobbed into Roast this morning for the launch of this 68 page book that I've designed for Borough Market. The content includes the fascinating history of London's oldest food market, interviews with traders and retailers and a look at what the future holds for Borough. The lovely landscape illustration of the market by Karen Neale, great portrait photography by Dominik Gigler and the reassuring print expertise of Tom at Square all helped make for a very happy client.

FRANK experience

I recently returned from an inspiring two week trip to India with charity and pro bono client FRANK Water Projects. We visited some of the sustainable clean water facilities that FRANK have helped install with the Indian NGO Naandi and also saw two villages in need of clean drinking water that have been earmarked for FRANK funded facilities. FRANK began as a social enterprise donating all profits from the sale of FRANK Water (their ethical brand of bottled spring water) to help build sustainable clean water facilities around the world. They have since set up a charity to maximise their donations and now also raise funds by selling water coolers and tap filtering systems, sponsoring marathons and organising their own 'Thirsty Expeditions'. Lots of pictures from the trip here.
