2St John's Advent Calendar 2017

Christmas 2017

We have just taken delivery of the Advent calendar we designed for the Museum of the Order of St. John. Timed to coincide with an Elizabethan event in the museum’s historic rooms, it was illustrated once again by the hugely talented Sophie Glover.

Origami prizewinner in Vegas

It’s the hospitality industry’s answer to speed-dating. At Virtuoso in Las Vegas, hoteliers have 90 seconds to sell their hotels to potential bookers. This year we provided Rosewood London with printed paper sheets and trained their sales team to talk and fold. And as they  joined, folded and parted paper so they revealed different parts of the hotel: The Holborn Dining Rooms, Scarfes Bar, The Mirror Room. The paper finally turned into Rosewood London’s golden retriever, named Pearl and a small collar was placed around her neck. We’re thrilled that Rosewood London won the top prize at Virtuoso – The best and most inventive presentation award.

Rosewood Times

Re-creating an Edwardian newspaper with cabaret listings and all flavours of restaurants for Rosewood London took us into a world of witty epithets, conundrums and advertisements for home horse exercisers and triple knotted corsets.

Torrens trophy

Torrens trophy

This year the magazine we produce on behalf of The Royal Automobile Club is focusing on its extraordinary collection of trophies that extend way back to the beginning of motoring. Some are so special that one made of gold was painted black by members and used as a doorstop for many years in case invading Nazis discovered it and were tempted to cut it down.  Holly, one of our editors, has been working with the Club’s archivist, Jane Holmes and come up with some terrific images to illustrate them. We particularly liked those of Arthur Bourne, (a journalist who wrote under the name Torrens, after whom the Torrens trophy was named),  on his motorbikes in the ‘30’s and 40’s that made the front cover of our January issue.

ADVENT CALENDAR

Museum of the Order of St. John

Our friends at the Museum of the Order of St. John asked us to design an advent calendar for them. It is a lovely project. Every window opens to reveal a facet of the fascinating history of the priory and St John’s Gate. Find out more about the museum here.

Shinola, the Detroit luxury watch brand invited us to promote them in the UK.

One of a number of activations that focussed on their lifetime guarantee, involved an artist working 24/7 over their birthday week to create a photo realistic rendering of a giant Runwell watch in the window of their Soho store. ‘Built to last 100 birthdays’.

The launch of Rivington Bye

An extraordinary evening of foxgloves popping out of cardboard boxes, flying black moths, jewel hunting birds, edible snails and a fascinating floral installation in our window by Helen Main-Ellen in our new Clerkenwell studio.

You can listen here to a soundscape commissioned for the event by brilliant new film composer Dan Mcbride.

Our new name and identity

Our new name and identity

It’s now time to move from the ubiquitous Craft London – a company name which dated faster than we expected when we first named our company in 2007 and now used to elevate every fad from micro-brewed beer to pulled pork – to a name which puts us firmly in our location. Rivington Bye derives from Rivington, the famous family of printer/publishers once based in St. John’s Square and Deodatus Bye, an 18thc printer of religious tracts who lived a few doors down at 18 Albemarle Street (as it was then known). It seemed fitting. This part of Clerkenwell being outside the city wall, has been home to maverick printers and publishers for the last six hundred years. If anything could be truly named ‘craft’ it was the skill with which our new name was hand-painted above the studio by Peter O’Connor.

Clerkenwell Design Week

Clerkenwell Design Week

Our studio backs on to the beautiful cloister garden of St John’s priory and for a week we were able to watch as people walked between the clumps of herbs once used by the Knights Hospitallers, to view the latest garden furniture that crammed the walkways.

The Explorer’s Logbook

Delving into the archives of the Royal Geographical Society as part of a project to assist Silversea reposition their brand, we discovered everything from 18thc ship’s toffee to Shackleton’s balaclava and a wealth of extraordinary images. A great shame that we could only publish a fraction in our new book.

It took a lot of experiment to design and make this pop-up for Rosewood London. It had to be as architecturally detailed as we could make it  – inside as well as out. CAD only gets you so far.
