A sneak preview of the artwork for the forthcoming James Allsopp Quartet LP ‘I’m A Fool To Want You’. It will be released on Impossible Ark Records as a limited edition vinyl soon.  

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 […]

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.

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.

It is smaller than the A4 magazine (it’s 189mm x 267m) so it sits neatly under the masthead of the magazine […]

Produced by Ben Lamdin (aka Nostalgia 77) and recorded using vintage analogue tape technology, ‘Losing You’ will be released 11th May as a limited edition vinyl LP […]

The Victorian: Tower Bridge

The latest issue of The Victorian (Issue 48) has gone to print. This is the opening spread of the article about the depiction of Tower Bridge in art to coincide with the exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery entitled ‘Tower Bridge: A Celebration of 120 Years, 1894–2014’.

Emanative: Lions Of Judah

Before the forthcoming The Light Years Of The Darkness LP release (see below) there was the Lions Of Judah single by emanative for the Steve Reid Foundation. The illustrations for both the single and the LP were done by Gene Pendon and it was a joy to collaborate with him on both jobs.
