Internationally recognised documentary photographer, Jospeh Rodriguez, will also give a unique presentation where he will share his experiences capturing the lifestyle of Hispanic gang culture in East Los Angeles.

Los Angeles-based Andrew Holder and Italian duo Bomboland were approached by NYC's Night Agency to produce a couple of images for Kiehl's latest social media campaign. The artists illustrated the importance of a day-to-night skincare routine using our Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
We've been spying Adam Hayes' illustrations for Experian all over the London Underground! Have you seen them? Adam collaborated with our friends at The Red Brick Road to produce a series of 3 illustrations that demonstrate how checking your credit score is much easier than you think. (More so than juggling for example, which we are rubbish at!) We think these ads communicate the message in a beautifully simple and eye-catching way. To see more of Adam's brilliant portfolio, please click here.
The 2014 SXSW Film Poster has arrived! Zim & Zou partnered with Gravillis Inc. to produce a truly unique and captivating poster for this year’s film festival. "Our goal was to create a poster that did not feel like it could be easily digitally reproduced. Ultimately, we wanted to embrace the 'do-it-yourself' ethos that SXSW has shown each year with their creative and imaginative footprint at the festival.” - Gravillis Inc.

IBM Watson turned to Pocko's Adam Hayes to spruce up its Tumblr as part of the super-computer's move to Manhattan. Hayes created the lead-space illustration that spans the top of IBMblr ("IBM Innovation Culture + Tumblr") and four "Watson at Work" designs to be posted on the page... "For the lead space, I was asked to make small drawings to represent either shopping, customer service, finance, or health care, arranged in a thought bubble coming from the Watson logo – to depict what the IBM software was thinking about." (Adam Hayes).
