Graphic Design turned into inflatable Prop “Blownup”

We were commissioned to design a character that was transformed into an inflatable 3D character called a “Blownup” for a Ford Commercial earlier this year. The illustration was turned into an inflatable “Grown-up’,  that would encourage safe driving as statistically there are less accidents in cars when there are older adults present.

Large period prop book

We were challenged by the request to design, print and make a large Medieval style religious book for Todd Margaret series 3.

The dimensions had to be 15 inches high, 12 inches wide and 4 inches deep, far larger than any production print book to wrap around.

We bought a few large atlases and guillotined down the pages to a uniform size and bound them together. Printing our design onto parchment paper, with a blue leather cover and gold vinyl produced surprising results:
