Hans Koller: Retrospection

The Hans Koller triple LP is in and looking good. The sleeve features artwork by Liz Miller entitled Synaesthetic Score.

The album itself features the German NDR Bigband, legendary bassist Steve Swallow, American saxophonist John O’Gallagher and Danish guitarist Jakob Bro, alongside an outstanding line-up of eminent UK jazz musicians. The album release is scheduled for April 15, but if you can’t wait that long there should be copies of the vinyl at Kings Place for the album launch.

A constant shift East

We are moving! Not far, but far enough to need a new contact map – and as you can see we will be at the end of the Victoria Line, just a minute from Walthamstow Central station:

Walthamstow will be the fourth permanent home of Made In Earnest after Clerkenwell, Hoxton and Clapton. It’s been a constant shift East since the start it would seem!

New address details: 87 Cairo Road, London E17 3BB.

Visitors, cards and presents are more than welcome.

Nostalgia 77: A Journey Too Far

Almost 18 months after it’s release I am finally able to add the Nostalgia 77 album A Journey Too Far to the site and to the portfolio. The album came out on Tru Thoughts and is still available as a limited edition vinyl (among other formats).

Historic House: restoration

It’s been a long time since I posted anything about Historic House magazine, but the Autumn 2015 issue is out now and the cover features a fabulous image of the restoration of St Giles House. Usually the magazine would have an ‘after’ image on the cover, but I thought this was just too interesting and too informative not to use. Thankfully the Association agreed.

Acland Burghley: Visual Arts exhibition

Another of our ongoing projects is the design for the annual Acland Burghley Visual Arts exhibition. Every year a students work is chosen to feature on both the poster and the invite that is sent out. Below is both the 2105 and 2014 posters.

The Echo

One of the ongoing projects we have is the design of The Echo newsletter for the Association of Sound Designers. It’s a landscape A5 format and despite being all about sound is pleasing full of images…

Summer is coming…

… and the office is looking good in the sun. Hopefully Summer is on the way…
