Cheese, champagne and a big shiny Gong
You know those days? Those days when something so great has happened, you can't stop grinning? On a rare sunny June (well, rare for 2016) morning a couple of weeks back, we were invited to a drinks party, in the most gorgeous surroundings to drink champagne. The occasion? To celebrate our win as Best Local Creative Producer at the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2016! One year on from starting our independent, family business, we were recognised by our incredibly loyal client base, friends and family who voted us to the top of the shop, against very established and well regarded opposition. Thanks...

Windows to the Soul
Like so many others we were absolutely devastated by the death of David Bowie. He was a constant in our lives.

It is impossible to relate his passing without reflecting upon our own mortality. His courage and legacy leaves a will to be different, to show others bravery in art and in life. Since his death, we have been looking for the simplest possible visual expression that could uniquely describe David Bowie. Our dots represent Bowie's distinctive pupils. The windows to...
Twittens and Terriers
Yeah, we like Lewes. Packed with independent stores and spirit, we had the pleasure of delivering a MuffatPrague commission to clients down in Sussex a couple of weeks back. We stumbled upon The Tom Paine Printing Press on the High Street and talked type with the very knowledgeable Peter Chasseaud, leaving the shop armed with crisp hand-inked prints before finding our way down the hill to Closet and Botts and their cave of lovingly selected treasures for the soul and home. Thanks to A&P for introducing us to your part of the world. We'll be back.
Best dressed man in't shop
Having been introduced back in the day by our Manchester arm of Kate, FB, Oli and Leo, we've been long time fans of Oi Polloi here at MuffatPrague. During our first visit to their flagship store in Manchester's Northern Quarter, Rob was greeted by one of the guys addressing him as "Best dressed man in't shop" concluding, "your Son". Admittedly Angus was looking pretty fresh for a 7 year old in his duffle and Stan Smiths. We were pretty stoked to see them stretching south to open up a store in Marshall Street W1. Best dressed shop in W1. Your shop. Lovely use of Cooper...
