House of Frustration
10 July 2008

We lost this pitch to design an identity for the new House of Illustration. I liked some of my visuals though, and they can get to see the light of day here.

Newly-launched in 2008, the House of Illustration is a kind of museum dedicated to illustration in all of its forms, set up with a lot of help from Quentin Blake, famous for illustrating Roald Dahl’s books among others.

The pitch took place while I was away on holiday, there were apparently some tricky questions, so with hindsight I wish I'd been there. I had a nice holiday though, I suppose.
