Neighbouring 3D designer Jonathan Thomas, worked with me to produce this tongue in cheek poster to promote one of his products raising money for a great cause.
The Walthamstow Dad T-Shirt raises money for the Whips Cross Hospital maternity Unit. £5 from every purchase goes to the Big Push Campaign. And I was challenged with a fantastic brief which in short was “Watchmen meets Les Dawson”.
Jonathan’s own work specialises in unique artisan projects ranging from huge workplace installations to bespoke furniture for private homes.
His background includes a prestigious list of clients & projects including WPP interiors, Savile Row window displays and marketing campaigns for the National Gallery.
He has collaborated on a number of high profile projects with Thomas Heatherwick and helped to establish what is now Heatherwick Studio. He was a creative consultant at The Partners and has lectured in 3D design at UCA Canterbury and Surrey Institute of Art & Design. He previously founded the award winning multi-disciplinary design company Make Limited.
The Walthamstow Dad Challenge throws down a gauntlet to owners of the T-shirt to take a photo with them in the tee, in some exotic location. The winner bestows the honour of being named Walthamstow Dad of the Year.
