I draw my inspiration from all manner of things. There’s the usual
suspects of course music, pieces of art i.e. Turner, Nicholson, Pollock.
Pieces of design; check out the book Latino America Graffica, well worth

the creaminess of the drink.
This was a conceptual brief where I created a Corporate I’D for
a ‘green product’ for Shell Oil. The product was to be purchased
