Doodle bug

Wahaca recently started a few conversations by putting grasshoppers (a snack in Mexico) on the menu. We wondered whether customers liked or loathed the idea. Illustration by our own Peter Ryan for Wahaca’s Ola London Magazine. 


Pig in the city

We recently took some time out to see The Pig Idea in action at Stepney City Farm. The Pig Idea’s Edd Colbert explained what was on the menu: a starter of brewer’s grain, maincourse of potato offcuts (discarded because people like straight chips) and a pudding of leftover whey with a side of lettuce. Great to see how tiny piglets have been raised to (very) boisterous, healthy porkers all on nutritious food that would otherwise be binned. We’re delighted that our identity work has helped garner over 1500 pledges of support to date. More on the campaign’s exciting culmination in a few weeks…


Who’s your mama?

Great night at StreetFeast on Friday to celebrate the first appearance of Burrito Mama (where we earned our supper with some impromptu sign-writing). Congratulations to Tommi, Gavin, Lucy and the team. Mama will be appearing permanently at London’s One New Change in November.


Box seats

We all love a parcel – the excitement of unwrapping and the promise of something new. When we were commissioned to create the 2014 campaign for Interiors UK, the UK’s largest interiors trade event, we felt nothing said “big”, “new” and “design” like a huge box of fantastic furniture. Shot by Luke Kirwan and styled by Melinda Ashton Turner, the images will feature in global advertising and marketing as well as at the event in January (where the big red box may well make an appearance). More as the campaign identity develops throughout the year…


Worldwide Wedgwood

Our ads for Wedgwood have started popping up in Japan (this one from fashion magazine Ginger). Designed as part of brand repositioning, the campaign is an idealised vision of England – eccentric, lyrical and refined. Hoping it’s considered kawaii (adorable)…


What’s the Pig Idea?

At BuroCreative, we’re easily persuaded by worth-while causes, and there’s no disguising our passion for all things food related. So when Masterchef Thomasina Miers and environmentalist Tristram Stuart approached us with their campaign to reduce food waste, which would culminate in a gastronomic feast in Trafalgar square, we were as excited as the proverbial pig in mud.

Not only has the (pro bono) project been fun and educational for the team, it’s proved to be a sustainable and engaging approach to our corporate responsibility.

The Pig Idea has the support of high profile ‘Ham-bassadors’; Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Fergus Henderson and Giorgio Locatelli amongst others.

An English brand blooms

With the summer finally making an appearance, our midwinter shoot at Barleston Hall for Wedgwood seems a distant memory. But we’re finally ready to reveal the results of the hard work. And doesn’t it look beautifully warm and sunny… thanks to the talented Rebecca Miller.

Rosa’s cookbook

Belated congratulations to all at Rosa’s on the launch of their first cookbook. The book, designed by BuroCreative and shot by Alex Maguire, celebrates the spirit of Rosa’s: a Thai café established on the site of a former East-end caf.

BuroCreative have moved

Finally in our beautiful new studio in Clerkenwell; more space, more light and the whole place to ourselves. Which box did we pack the champagne in?


Say goodbye to the devastator

As we gear up for moving offices (more later) we say goodbye to Hoxton Square with a crack at Red Dog’s “devastator” burger. Resident foodie and all round eating machine JJ took a mere 15 mins to demolish the monster. Job done. Time to move on.
