The Boy in the Dress at the RSC Merchandise November 23 2019

At Andy Tuohy Design we are massive fans of football as well as theatre, so when the Royal Shakespeare Company asked us to create merchandise for their upcoming musical production of The Boy in the Dress we jumped, (quite literally, although not as high as Virgil Van Dijk), at the chance.

So re-imaging the RSC as a football club we designed classic woolly hats and scarves as well as show mugs, coasters, magnets and badges. 

You can see more and purchase in their Stratford Upon Avon store or online here:

Towner Gallery, Eastbourne
Latest addition to the Website
October 20 2016 1 Comment

We are very pleased to have put up Andy's image of The Towner Gallery in Eastbourne, East Sussex. Andy has put in few nods to Eric Ravilious, in the form of his stylistically rendered trees and clouds as Ravilious himself had a long association with Eastbourne and who has many works are housed within the gallery. 

Towner is Eastbourne's foremost museum of art. From its opening in 1923 the Towner Art Gallery was located in an 18th-century manor house in Manor Gardens, in the Old Town district of Eastbourne. It was relocated to a new state-of-the-art gallery, designed by Rick Mather Architects, adjacent to the Eastbourne Congress Theatre, Devonshire Park which opened in April 2009.
