Film premiere: JazzTypes exhibition


On 3rd July, in the intimate surrounds of The Basement at The Porter in Bath, we held the first exhibition of Bob’s JazzTypes posters. 



Gill’s new website


The newest addition to the Mytton Williams team is Gill Chantler. Gill is a part-time studio assistant here, and throughout the rest of the week she fills her time as a freelance illustrator working out of her studio in Bristol on all sorts of commissioned and collaborative projects. 



Bath’s making space


Craneworks is an exciting new space proposed in Bath being backed by some of the country's leading creatives.



Mr Bingo WEDF talk


Bath Spa graduate, Mr Bingo prides himself on illustrating all things weird, wacky and wonderful, and luckily for us he’s coming to Bristol to give a talk on illustration, hilarity and delightful abuse.



JazzTypes at The Porter


So, we’ve told you about Bob’s creative experiment - 100 posters over 100 days of the top 100 jazz musicians – but now we’ve taken it a step further. We are about to launch the first in a series of JazzTypes events!



The impact of good branding


We are delighted that one of our clients, Viper Subsea have been awarded £180k of LEP funding. We started working Viper Subsea over 4yrs ago, when they were a fast growing, innovative engineering company producing products and services for the international subsea oil, gas and offshore renewables industries. At the time, they were launching new products and felt they needed to reappraise their branding, as they wanted to look more mainstream and stand out in the international crowd.



A window into a creative university


We’ve been working with Bath Spa University recently on their 2015 undergraduate prospectus. They wanted something different to any they’d had before. It also needed to be innovative, creative and help them ‘stand out in the crowd’.

We worked with illustrator, Matthew Hodson, an ex-student from Bath Spa to design a prospectus that illustrates the courses, the people, the cultural values and the energy at the university.

Have a look at our new Bath Spa University brand story and find out what they thought and what’s been said on social media.


Mouthwateringly beautiful postcards


Building on the work we have already done for Waitrose Cookery School, we have recently designed a series of postcards continuing in the beautiful, playful illustrative style. They will be using the postcards not only use as compliment slips, but will also be for sale in the cookery school shop if you fancy any.



Designing a prestigious campaign


St Mary’s needed to create a campaign that was prestigious, impressive and reflected the university’s belief that choosing the right course and university will positively shape a person’s future. We developed and created ‘Where Next?’, a prestigious looking campaign with a modern twist, implemented across all print materials and digital communications that gets students thinking about their future aspirations. It was great to work on a whole campaign and St Mary’s are so happy they’ve entered it for a Heist award! 

You can have a look at the whole campaign here.




What makes us creative? How do you constantly develop fresh creative ideas, year after year? Do you slip into patterns that make you less creative, relying on solutions that you know have worked in the past? And if so, what can you do to become more creative? These were the questions Bob had started to ask himself. In an effort to explore ways to be more creative, he needed to do something to provide some answers.

As a jazz lover, he embarked on an experiment to fire up his imagination and explore creativity – creating 100 posters over 100 days of the top 100 jazz musicians - documenting his thinking process and what he learnt about being creative along the way. 

So, what did he learn?
