“Based in north west London, for the past few years Smile has been created large printed posters and pasting them across the walls of the capital. Each bears a message addressing themes including “individual rights, personal responsibility, respect for nature and the environment and a warning against the destructive forces of greed, intolerance, arrogance and hubris,” he says. His name is drawn from those scenarios when you’re cheerily asked to “smile” even after being scalded, or following a traumatic situation: “it indicates a sense of control, like ‘you WILL smile, whatever we do.’”

“We used the new positioning to rebrand the restaurant, focusing on creating an identity that had threads of tradition presented in a youthful and playful manner. A new logo was created using a characterful serif font which balanced the traditional with a more quirky edge. Colour was also used in a similar way, paring traditional darker tones with contemporary feeling brights and unusual combinations.”
Ad creative creates Father’s Day cards for single mums
“Stevie Rowing-Parker, a copywriter at Grey London, has created an unusual set of cards for Father’s Day, which are actually aimed at single mums, in recognition of the dual parental role they play.
“It’s safe to say I’m very proud of my Mum,” he continues. “A few years ago this huge pride was the beginning of an idea I had one Father’s Day. I thought that if my Mum did both Mother and Father roles so well, why shouldn’t she get both Mother and Father’s Day cards? So I started to graffiti regular Father’s Day cards by crossing out the Dad in ‘Best Dad in the world’ and scribbling Mum instead.”
