I am pleased to say that we have launched our animation for FASI (the Food Allergy Science Initiative), before we all broke for the holidays.
Food allergy is a severe public health threat faced by millions worldwide, the large majority of whom are children. For decades, it was thought that an allergic reaction was caused when the immune system sees certain foods as a foreign invader. As a result, the reaction may lead to inflammation, shock and even death.
However, we are now discovering that a key component to food allergies is the nervous system, as well as the immune system. It is the cells in epithelial tissues that first detect allergies. FASI aims to leverage these insights together with our understanding of the underlying biological basis of food allergy, to transform advances in diagnosis, prevention, and treatment, which is really exciting.
For more information, you can see the animation we built for FASI at the link below (be sure to select the banner!)
Happy New Year!

I am so pleased to say that Brigitte's site is now live. Her work is amazing, Brigitte herself is absolutely lovely to work with. The gorgeous imagery is showcased in a fluid fashion that is easy to access for busy directors and agents.
Well, back to work after one of our busiest summers...

Just launched a site for the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, which has been working to support London actors and stage managers experiencing hardship due to injury, illness or old age - for the past 135 years. This charity is almost as old as Canada!
Over it’s long history, it has been bequeathed many original costume illustrations, pieces of art and writings from some of the most renowned artists in the industry. Much of this will appear in the Archive section of the site, finally being available to the public for the first time.
The site also features a History page that tells its story. It is a good read, as it is quite eventful!
We are grateful to work for such an amazing organisation.
Have a nice Easter Long Weekend! As you know, we have just had one of our busiest few months here at MOTHandRUST London, which has been great, but I do look forward to getting back to sharing news more regularly.

The Poitras Center for Affective Disorders Research was established in 2007 through funding from Patricia and James Poitras to the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, an illustration was created for the Poitras family which features key imagery from the past decade.
Have a nice weekend. I'm quite happy to be on holiday next week!

As a follow up to last week's post, Kavli has written a lovely description of their logo, which we designed in addition to their site, and thought I'd share:
"The Kavli NDI vision for understanding neuroscience and cognition emanates from fact the brain is comprised of individual cells patterned together to form neural network motifs. While each individuals brain architecture conserves some motifs, such as cortical columns, our brains are distinct in others, such as nuclei. Within these unique variances our brains reflect with exquiste complexity who we are as individuals. This notion is symbolically represented with our logo which is inspired by the Penrose tile. Penrose tiles are a set of simple shapes that can be organized to form infinitely non-repeating patterns into complex structures found both in design (e.g. architecture) and in nature (e.g. quasicrystals)."

Have a great long weekend!
