Fortnum & Mason Advent Calendar

Design Product & Packaging

Hannah Warren

Hannah worked with Otherway Studio to craft a joyful and festive design for Fortnum & Mason's 'Festive Feasting' advent calendar.

Hannah created a central illustration depicting the iconic department store food hall bursting with Christmas sparkle and delicious treats, where every date window is intricately crafted. Carrying the design style to the outside of the box, Hannah also created the front and sleeve of the calendar in the image of the extravagant Fortnum & Mason windows.

Mum's Life™


Ines Pagniez

Inès’ humorous campaign MUM'S LIFE™ explores the universal realities of becoming a parent. While on maternity leave with her second child, Ines was musing on the unexpected changes that come from giving birth and having a newborn; the not always glamorous or tender moments that you aren’t necessarily prepared for. It was also at this time that she wanted to keep her hands busy, so naturally the two combined in her signature style to make this humorous, personal series that she hopes will be relatable to parents everywhere and shed some light on the postpartum experience.

The New York Life Foundation 'Lost In The Middle'

Children's Publishing

Genie Espinosa

Genie worked with the New York Life Foundation to illustrate the fourth graphic novel in their ‘Lost in the Middle’ series. Lost in the Middle follows the character of Kai and was launched to help children and their families process grief.

Developed with insights from a leading expert in the field of bereavement, the book delivers a powerful message around collective healing, built chapter by chapter as characters navigate individual challenges but ultimately come together as a community to grow. The 200 page graphic novel is the first commissioned novel that Genie has worked on, with her first personal book receiving much acclaim, and her second soon to be released.
