Livingbridge is an independent private equity firm, with five offices in five major cities across the UK, the US and Australia. We were commissioned to create a set of limited edition prints, based on the location of each office to hang in their buildings. They wanted something that was colourful and fun to brighten up their otherwise corporate surroundings.
Our concept was to use illustration to capture an unfamiliar fact about each city. We used minimal detail and the use of negative space to create images with double meanings that stylistically work together as a set.
The minimalist style and flat colours in the final illustrations worked well with screen printing as a medium. We collaborated with White Duck Editions, to make the final limited edition prints.
