Nick Chaffe was asked by Artcrank to design a print for their ‘Poster Party For Bike People’. Cycling in Sweden whilst listening to the Doors song ‘The End’ inspired Nick’s brilliant print.

We love these brand new portfolio pieces by Blindsalida. These bold, graphic pieces are a perfect addition to his diverse portfolio.

We’re back in the office after a great trip to the Bologna Book Fair. We were very excited to be greeted by one of Ben Scruton’s  (Butt Naked!) Romans at the Egmont stand and it was great to share our portfolios with so many publishers. If you didn’t manage to catch up with us at Bologna we’ll be at The London Book Fair April 15-17th. We will have the portfolios from both Meiklejohn and our sister agency New Division and still have a few appointments left, so do get in touch if you’d like to meet up.
