Welcome to another Studio Flavor edition of Creative Juice. This week features design studio How & How. For this feature I asked founder Cat How, and Junior Designer Joanna Nicoll to share some creative finds that are inspiring the work at How & How. Enjoy!

PS. If you have any fav design studios or agencies that you would like to hear from. Please let me know here.

Creative Juice is a weekly newsletter published every Monday morning so you can start your week feeling inspired creatively to make cool sh*t and get paid for it.

Something Gorgeous

The Photo Stories of Carlos Idun-Tawiah

Boys Will Always Be Boys - 2023

Boys Will Always Be Boys - 2023

I've chosen the work of Carlos Idun-Tawiah, a Ghanaian photographer who seeks to 'remark and reimagine the ever-changing landscapes of Black life.' His work is rich in meaning, and beautifully bold in execution. Boys Will Always Be Boys immediately came to mind for Something Gorgeous.

A Portfolio You'll Never Get Bored Of!

Eilidh Reid

Eilidh Reid

Our midweight designer Eilidh's portfolio is brimming with joy and undeniable talent. We were immediately drawn in by her expert use of colour and wide range of stylistic capability, with a particular shout out to her numerous expressively animated naked ladies! She uses Instagram to display her public portfolio of work.

Creative Finds

Amplifying the Whispers of Mother Aruba

Boys Will Always Be Boys - 2023

Aruba Conservation: Foundation

Our latest rebrand for the wonderful people at the Aruba Conservation Foundation (ACF) - the appointed nature conservation organization on the island, tasked with protecting over 24% of the island’s natural habitat, both terrestrial and marine - saw us amplifying the voice of Mother Aruba. This was a pleasure to make, a beautiful project for beautiful people, all working towards an inspirational goal.

Growing Fuzz for A Tree-planting App

Free Tree

Free Tree

Freetree hijacks traditional online consumer behaviour, turning guilt-ridden transactional experiences into moments of feel-good fuzziness. By planting trees where they’re needed most, filling open spaces with branches, foliage and undergrowth, Freetree is also making Earth fuzzier too. Although there was budget in this project, we asked Freetree to waive our fee and ‘pay us in trees’ instead. We're thrilled our work helped to plant 60,000 trees as a result!

Raising the Bar on Street Food

Yum Bun

Yum Bun

Yum Bun takes street food back to its OG meaning. They're meal experimentalists, throwing out the recipe book and forever setting the standard for MORE. Our brand idea for Yum Bun was ‘Bounce and Rise’, speaking to Yum Bun's bouncy baos, playful energy and standard-raising culture. The highlight of the project has to be Bowie, the bouncy bao mascot. It was so much fun working on the different iterations of this little guy, we did loads of different tests and illustrations of him in different poses, with or without arms etc. In the end, something nice and simple turned out to be the best.

One Lesson

Simple Yet Effective

Simple Yet Effective

Joanna chose the book 'Steal Like an Artist' as it taught her a key lesson when starting out as a designer. She says that "a large part of becoming a designer and entering the industry is gaining the confidence to do so. This book helped me immensely, with all its tips and tricks. Mainly, teaching the valuable lesson of how to use what those before you have done, but make it *better*".
