We have created the animated illustrations for the multi BAFTA award winning BBC One show The Great British Bake Off since it's inception in 2010. As well as a number of spin-off shows such as Xmas Specials, Master Classes, Comic Relief and Sport Relief.
15.9 million viewers tuned into the finale of 2016's Series 7 to see Candice Brown win, making it the most watched TV series in the UK for the third year running.
In 2016 we enlisted the help of Studio Hovey's first Intern, Caspar Wain a recent graduate of Illustration at University of West of England. Caspar helped out on all of Studio Hovey's projects during his time with us.
In 2014 we collaborated with Andrew Thomas of Reborn design agency to create a unique 3D animated version of the iconic Visit England logo. The animated logo was used on Visit England's Discover England campaign videos.
We produced three, thirty second animations that appeared across the hour long Channel 4 documentary 'The Cruel Cut' about the campaign to tackle Female Genital Mutilation in the UK.
The program was presented by Leyla Hussein who is an anti-FGM activist, psychotherapist, a member of the FGM Special Initiative and co-founder of Daughters of Eve, a charity dedicated to ending gender-based violence including female genital mutilation.

Hurricane Media commissioned the illustrated assets for an animation for the Deposit Protection Service. The animation was part of a social media campaign to help students understand how they could hold onto their deposits.
2016's The Great American Baking Show is the follow on series from the piloted 2015 series The Great Holiday Baking Show, commissioned by ABC USA.
In 2016 we produced the illustrated graphics for the first series of Crème de la Crème for BBC Two. CDLC is like Bake Off for professional teams of pastry chefs. The teams created very elaborate patisserie and desserts for judges Benoit Blin, Claire Clark and Cherish Finden.
The graphics were a real departure form the illustration style we used for the Bake Off which was a real challenge as they were so complex and intricate.
We have created the illustrated graphics for Junior Bake Off for CBBC for Series 2,3 & 4. Junior Bake Off is a spin off of The Great British Bake Off with young bakers competing to be Junior Bake Off Champion in the Bake Off tent.
An ongoing personal project of illustrations inspired by characters from films that I love.
I wanted to challenge myself to recreate iconic characters from film using a limited colour palette and simplistic figurative style.
Can you guess the films? Answers on a postcard...
The Secret 7" project takes 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7" vinyl. They then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style, resulting in a one-of-a-kind sleeve for every 7”. The creatives are made up of famous names through to gems unearthed through artwork submitted to the website.
I have been lucky enough to be involved with the fantastically successful Secret 7' project for the past 5 years since it's inception, displaying my work alongside designs created by Jake and Dinos Chapman, Sir Antony Gormley, Sir Paul Smith, Sir Peter Blake, Jeremy Deller, Damien Hirst and David Shrigley
