Another piece of work for Fisso & Spark. This weighty track needed an appropriate image to fit it, so the picto-brain wrangled pixels to make this composite:

The 1623 theatre company
provide theatre performances, learning workshops, award-winning participatory activities and inspirational training courses all formed from or inspired by the works of Shakespeare. They’re currently conducting a research-and-development project that engages people creatively with King Lear
in the context of dementia, a part of which is an open submission asking for creative responses to the quote ‘Let me not be mad’. [details here
- closes 20th Sept!]
Here is the pictographik submission, a photoshop composite that hopefully echoes the tone of the phrase. (…maybe?!) Once the image is uploaded to their site, a link will be added.
The original stock photos (below) came from sxc
and were uploaded by user Leroys, check out his awesome detailed images here
. The type is a combination of Times New Roman and Fusion.

Joe C is a Dallas based breaks producer, dj and part of the Ground Level family, so when he said he needed a logo, the picto-brain offered to create it. He was after something that reflected his love of Dallas and street art, and was stoked with the result. Keep an eye out for it on future releases, but in the mean time if you fancy putting some beats and breaks in your ears, go [here]. Enjoy!

The picto-brain was commissioned by the awesome Miss Cakehead to create some retro signs for her latest project, this time a lot less gory than her other work but no less extravagant! Miss Cakehead is going to make it snow edible ice cream for two days at Thorpe Park on Friday July 26 and Saturday July 27 - that’s right, you did just read that – edible snow! In the middle of summer! More details can be found [here], if head along, keep you eyes peeled for the signs!

After visiting a self-publishing fair at Chapter in Cardiff recently [details here], the picto-brain was inspired to create a mini-zine for o_S_k_m. The zine is limited to only 100 copies and contains a download code for a 3 track ep. It’s a typographic piece exploring the meaning of the 4 letters in the name… Do they actually stand for anything?
