PUSSYKREW FOR CANADA GOOSE X THE WEBSTER
Pussykrew’s latest foray into the world of fashion was to help promote Canada Goose’s capsule collection with The Webster. The New York based duo created a winterized version of California in virtual reality. It features different parts of the golden state, including a vast pink winter wonderland that Los Angeles has never seen before and a free-roaming environment, with changing weather conditions, in Big Bear. Shoppers are able to customize their own avatars and dress them in items from the capsule collection that are best suited for the environment. From there, they are free to explore the video game environment endlessly.

CACHETEJACK'S BRAND NEW BURGER KING
Last year, design duo Cachetejack received an exceptional opportunity: to help visually overhaul Burger King for the first time in more than twenty years. They delivered a series of custom illustrations that served as key building blocks for the brand’s new global identity. Their work went beyond that of an advertising campaign, instead featuring across the entire Burger King visual experience. Their illustrations are on social media and billboards, in addition to merchandise, food packaging, tray toppers and even the error message on the Burger King website.
Cachetejack’s work is as thoughtful as it is imaginative. They used colors inspired by Burger King’s ingredients (think: beef, lettuce, and fries) in order to create humorous carton scenes. From twirling onion rings on your fingers to pickle slice binoculars, the illustrations conjure a retro vibe and remind us of more playful meals from our childhoods past.
It is safe to say that Cachetejack’s new visual styling for Burger King isn’t just fresh. It has us craving a burger, fries and a bit more fun in our life. You too?

BEWILDER FOR BBC TEACH & STEVE MCQUEEN | SMALL AXE
We are proud to have worked on a new series of five educational films, with our animation studio Bewilder. The films were produced in partnership with BBC Teach and Steve McQueen and based on the five Small Axe films, currently airing on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The anthology series aims to help bring Black British history to life with the younger generation in mind. The commission is part of an ongoing push with BBC Education to ensure the wider part of BBC’s resources better reflect and represent the stories of all communities in the UK.
As such, the series is presented in a cluster of five classroom videos that are available to download for free – accompanied by activities for teachers in order to assist in lesson planning and engage the pupils.
“Using the stories in Steve McQueen's Small Axe films, we’ve made resources that make it as easy as possible for teachers to teach them.” says Sarah Fox and Adam Reincke, creatives at BBC Creative, in an announcement. With an aim to continue the legacy of Small Axe and go beyond the launch of the films, the team hope to make a difference as to how Black history is taught in schools.
“We know that teachers are hungry for more diverse classroom resources,” says Helen Foulkes, head of BBC Education, in the release. The 5x5 minute classroom videos include footage from the initial five films, and features some of the actors, too – such as Line of Duty’s Rochenda Sandall, Top Boy’s Michael Ward, and former Metropolitan Police Superintendent Leroy Logan MBE.
