The Harpers, One Darnley Road

Agency: One Darnley Road
Client: Harper Collins

The Harpers is an internal awards ceremony for HarperCollins Publishers, which celebrates exceptional achievements and creativity, and showcases outstanding work.

For the second year running One Darnley Road asked me to create the graphics package for the event. I was handed a host of jumbled up cover art from a years worth of books and told to go away and have some fun. Fun I had.

The general look was based on a poster 1DR had devised for the event. The rest was accomplished with slightly more than a tip of the hat to Terry Gilliam’s marvellous Monty Pyton animations, and a hearty helping of unnecessary violence.

They said – “This was most definitely the project that made us laugh the most this year.”
