Philippe Béha for VIV Magazine

Philippe Béha illustrates 5 Bogus Reasons Why You Can't Lose Weight. Working with VIV's art director, Vickie Vidana Ellman, Philippe injected a healthy dose of whimsy and humor into his depiction of the mythical excuses women make as to why they are unable to lose those extra pounds after age 40.

Betsy Everitt: Play App Art for Participaction!

  We were really excited when Hambly & Woolley approached us to have Betsy Everitt create the art for an app called Bring Back Play.  We could immediately see how Betsy's vibrant and playful art would lend perfectly to Participaction's mission--encouraging unstructured and imaginative play.  Participaction is a national not-for-profit organization who's vision is to get Canadians active.  We asked H&W to tell us more about their involvement in the Bring Back Play campaign and this is what they had to say:

"(We were) initially asked to come up with a print piece, but instead conceived of the idea for the interactive app. It seemed to be a better idea to help Participaction reach a broader audience with the message that we have to get kids moving. "Bring Back Play" relies on a nostalgic tug at the heart to get parents, care-givers, teachers, counsellors, etc., engaged in games we used to play. The app allows the user to post comments, upload video and photos, rate games, share games and add new games. We worked through the experiential aspects, through the wireframe, design and development -- in both English and French. Betsy Everitt's charming and colourful illustrations provided the friendly personality of the app and the functional wayfinding icons. It has been released to much acclaim and press coverage."

Tracy Walker for St. Anthony Messenger

Tracy Walker illustrated this piece for an article entitled “Blood of Life” which appeared in the July 2012 issue of St. Anthony Messenger, art directed by Jeanne Kortekamp. The story is about a woman with leukemia whose life is saved by her newborn baby’s umbilical cord stem cells. With her delicate and yet graphic approach, Tracy weaves the story in a conceptual manner where colors, textures and symbols all speak to this very poignant story.

Ian Lends Whimsy to Serious Subject

Recently Ian Phillips was commissioned to bring his humor and whimsy to a very serious story about bone health for the summer issue of Positive Side magazine. The story investigates HIV-related issues with regard to bone density. Bones can be healthy, brittle or too soft… Ian says, "First Goldilocks and The Three Bears came to mind. Then the Three Little Pigs and their houses of straw, sticks and bricks flashed through my mind as a better analogy. The smart-thinking pig built his house with bricks, demonstrating a proactive role in one’s health as the better choice."
