The re-opening of a legend

Once a famous hangout of the swinging 60’s in London. The Scotch of St James has been remade and reopened to create a few more stories like the one when Jimi Hendrix played his first UK gig there.

The famous Tartan interiors and stags head and swords that once adorned the walls are back in place in the beautifully design space. These are represented in the new logotype we created for them. The classic request of a traditionally modern logo we kept the crest by the books and mixed it up with the modern Scotch typography beneath.

Jeff Beck – Emotion and Commotion

Jeff Beck, continued to ignore the mainstream and push boundaries as his first album in seven years “Emotion & Commotion” added two more Grammy’s to his collection.

The original concept was born from an email from Jeff himself with an attached picture of a colourful bird perched on a spoon. His thought of “something like this but with an eagle and a strat” was admitted to be “a bit tacky but effective”, and left me thinking quite simply, ‘How the hell am I going to make this work?’ So we embraced it and set out to create a design that was as dramatic and iconic as Jeff himself. The powerful bald eagle clutching his weapon of choice and looking like something out of the 70’s it got people talking – some loving it, some hating it. My favourite comment being ‘It would look great spray painted on the ass of my leather pants.”
