Laying down the law


At the the end of 2012 I was very kindly commissioned by the good folk at Goldstein Law Group to design a dozen law-related minimal movie posters for their new offices.

It was a really interesting project to get stuck into and was a great excuse to watch 12 films I might otherwise have missed. The films span the last 60 years of British and American cinema and there isn’t a dull film between them.

The Goldstein collection in full is:
12 Angry Men (1957)
Witness for the Prosecution (1957)
Inherit the Wind (1960)
Judgement at Nuremberg (1961)
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
In Cold Blood (1967)
…And Justice For All (1979)
My Cousin Vinny (1992)
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Amistad (1997)
Office Space (1999)
Michael Clayton (2007)

If you have a minimal project in mind you know who to contact

Thanks to minimal movie posters for showing my work.

Many Rooms

This Easter I was invited to contribute to an exhibition in North Wales hosted by Engedi Arts. I was given the Bible passage John 14 as my inspiration and set to work my Moleskine and Pilot 0.5. The house imagery stuck with me and so I played around with a few ideas of home and houses before settling with this little number. The final piece was stitched together with Illustrator and InDesign.

So what is the picture?
I think this one’s fairly self explanatory: it’s a house shape representing heaven. The figure bottom left faces the entrance to heaven. At the centre is Jesus. The only way of getting to Jesus is by following the path (Jesus’ words). It might not be straight forward or direct. Jesus and the the figure at the entrance look similar – Jesus came to Earth as a man.

It was great little event with a real mix of artists and styles – I felt chuffed to be invited. Gav Mart and his crew did a great job for their first exhibition.

The final design was a Giclee print and looked the bomb. Many thanks to Paul and his big new litho printer at Windsor Print.

A2 prints are available to buy on request.

Happy days.
