CityScape Coat Hangers on '60 Minute Makeover'

The CityScape Coat Hangers had a great feature on ITV's 60 Minute Makeover on Friday the 8th of May.


Lilly Wood & The Prick - 'Down The Drain' - Video Release

I am very excited to announce the video release of 'Down The Drain' by one of Paris's most exciting new bands; Lilly Wood & The Prick. Working alongside director Alex Turvey, I ran the Art Department and assisted Alex in the Set Design for the video, which is currently video and single of the week on iTunes France. Enjoy.

Lilly Wood & The Prick - Down The Drain from Alexander Turvey on Vimeo.

Set deep within a surreal woodland party, Nili And Ben are caught within a scene of bizarre theatrical violence between a gang of melancholy cats and owls.

After a long day of shifting large amounts of bark, glitter and more glitter. There were a few issues of things not working or breaking on us, but after a few hours of repairing and fixing, we had the set looking wonderful, ready for the next day and a great shoot.

PLACE at Composition

The full collection of CityScape coat hangers are currently being exhibited and sold at the wonderful; Composition, a gallery/design shop in Denver, Colorado.

PLACE explores human connections with physical places and how that can both be an impetus for the creation of goods and also creates a connection with the consumer that ultimately purchases a “place-based” product.

The exhibition runs until; 20th June 2009. More information can be found at Composition's own website: and on their Flickr page

See more wonderful detail shots of the hangers HERE.
