We are a creative design studio based in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, England, run by husband and wife team Phil and Charlotte Howell. We’re well known for our retro illustration, bold branding work, muted colour palettes and sexy tattooed punk rock babes.
We also work on several personal projects including: our weekly web series, Riverdale Hardcore, which has gained hundreds of thousands of likes and shares on Instagram, and our critically acclaimed Rock, Paper, Dolls which has been immensely popular on social media and has gathered its own celebrity fan base.
We are at our happiest when we’re helping you get the attention you deserve, whether that is with some unique illustration to bring your latest article to life, merchandise design to make your fans have to part with their cash, a rebrand that makes people stop in their tracks and notice you, or failing that, a sexy cartoon lady covered in tattoos.
We have had the pleasure of creating and working alongside some truly amazing people including: Columbia Records, Virgin Holidays, Universal, Cannes, Kanye West, Toby Morse (H20), Gallows, Tell ‘Em Steve Dave, Jaegermeister, FSG Books, Jennifer Finch (L7/The Shocker), Jessicka Addams (Jack Off Jill), Leah Carmichael, Tate, and many more.

I, like most illustrators, spent my whole childhood drawing, with and on whatever I could get my hands on. This passion never left, and led to me pursuing an education in the arts, which ended with me graduating as Student of the Year at Essex School of Art. I have always had a passion for two things: retro stuff and punk rock. I can spend hours browsing second-hand store boot sales, looking at old toys, posters and forgotten treasure. I’m a creature of nostalgia and sentiment, and aim to inject that into our work. I want our work to look like it was always there.
I’ve spent my whole life drawing, painting and making – I can’t imagine not creating things. My other passion is people; working with, meeting, and helping people. I spend my days combining these two passions; collaborating with amazing clients to help them stand out and establish their businesses. Friends describe me as a dedicated hard worker, with a big heart and an extreme addiction to caffeinated soft drinks. I’m truly passionate about what I do, and I love people with big ideas and huge ambitions. When I’m not at my desk I’m probably watching Buffy or pretending I’m Stevie Nicks.
