With their shared love of illustration and print making Rupert & Abi set up their creative business together where they quickly pooled clients, resources and capital to start RUDE.
As trained graphic designers their passion for print and applied art began with a collection of screen printed t-shirts and they opened their concept shop 'Let's make T-shirts', which housed the collections and offered bespoke screen printing services on site. This service earned external commissions to illustrate, design and manufacture for clients such as Tate, Urban Outfitters & The National Theatre.
Recently Rude's hand drawn illustrations and screen prints have been commissioned for poster art by TFL and The Royal London hospital. Whilst Veolia, a waste management company, commissioned a worldwide tv and poster ad campaign.
RUDE have illustration agents in London and Australia, Rupert and Abi live in London with their two sons Billy and Herbie...where Rupert specialises in hand drawn fonts and bespoke artwork whilst Abi heads up our animation department.
