Finished Artwork (Book Cover)

A gallery selection of our artwork.

We work for architects, publishers, manufacturers,
marketing & PR studios, film makers, writers, photographers
and lecturers.

Add us to your list of freelance creative designers.  We accept briefs online or attend meetings when in UK.

We also provide a rare service for visiting authors who enjoy having the run of our studio and gardens where they can explore book image ideas and get help on their next cover design/s. This is by arrangement with your literary agent, publisher or directly with us.

Metamorphic images

“Something’s happening and it’s happening right now” sang the Stranglers in “Something Better Change”
Some people are still too blind to see it but others grapple with change to make sure it’s for the better.

We grapple at The HoBB.

We grapple over breakfast, through each day, and by the log fires deep into the night. We grapple with ways to communicate change and to help people understand change. We grapple with changes that are hard to stomach and those that themselves need changing.

We do this by thinking of the unexpected, flying in the face of the normal, diving into ever new action and ever-moving forward.  As change can be a slow boat, we research and find ways to speed it up. Over one fast-moving morning, we focused on metamorphic image and here’s about 5% of the results:

We’re here for the open-minded and very practical grapplers. Change your views with us and work to change ours.

Updating our Gallery so you can keep an eye on what we’re doing

Whether produced at the HoBB Project House or on site at a clients’ works, records of project collaborations are gradually being published here.  We’ve got a back catalogue to share and a stream of new works too. Friend and fantastic WordPress guy, Bharat, figures we should be doing vids and podcasts to go along with our blogs, and as we are planning vid trailers for future projects and virtual book tours for new publications, I’m sure we’ll be keeping YouTube or Vimeo very busy.

For now, sit back and enjoy these still photos:

 

 

 

 

And there’s one very fresh wriggling project that we are happy to be doing and that’s collaborating on the development of a very organic worm farm. Here’s a preview of our plaque design to be fixed on the door of the worm hatchery:
