These posters in 2018 received numerous awards!
They received the GOLD Gosee Award Illustration (Germany) and the Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Award of the Canadian Applied Arts Magazine. They were AOI WIA World Illustration Awards, UK . They were selected by the Illustrators 60 Competition of the society of illustrators NYC, USA. They featured with Merit in the 3x3 international Annual No. 15, USA.

In 2012 we were commissioned by The Folio Society to illustrate the official novel for Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The book’s illustration has since received multiple awards. We were so moved and artistically inspired by the story, we went on to create a series of four posters, The Wall, The Mask, The Blood and The Face. Stylistically influenced by Italian Futurism and Russian Constructivism, the series is centred on the woman's body; the red women are empty objects, with no soul. Like clones the women are emptied of their personality and identity. A minimalist colour palette was used to communicate the psychological state of suffering, slavery, emptiness, and obsession: red, black, white and silver. The eyes (which feature promptly in all four pieces) symbolise the dictatorship, which owns and controls the woman.
