Tony Mines has directed a new 40-second commercial for Anchor Butter through advertising agency CHI&Partners.  Developing the stop-frame fuzzy felt seen in last year's Anchor productions at TANDEM, the new spot is a pastiche of the famous chase sequence from 'The Great Escape' starring Steve McQueen - except this time the part of the man on the motorcycle is played by a cow.  See the full story on Campaign magazine's website here

january 2009

TANDEM director Dave Daniels has just produced a calendar for 2009. Fortunately no nudity is involved; Dave has opted for some rather tasteful hand-printed wood block typography. Following a regime of compositional experimentation Dave has created a textual representation of each calendar month. A limited-edition run of the printed calendars will be sent out to friends and clients of TANDEM. For the enjoyment of our on-line audience, we'll be posting the pages monthly to this blog.
Best wishes for 2009 from us all.
