Goodbye!

Goodbye!

December 2014

After almost 14 years with Woo Agentur, I have decided to close down my agency to pursue new challenges. For project enquiries, please contact the illustrators directly. See the email addresses below. I can be reached on my regular email address for personal matters: choiping [at] woo .  se . Woo Shop will be open a little while longer, until the office is close down entirely.

It has been a great pleasure and joy to work with all of my illustrators and clients throughout the journey. I’ll see you around. And Merry Christmas!

Marcus Oakley – HotelClub

November 2014

HotelClub is a global online travel community dedicated to giving members a more rewarding travel experience. Their latest campaign ‘Idioms of the World’ includes illustrations by Marcus Oakley.

We use idioms to pepper our speech and writing, often without even realising we’re doing it. These odd little phrases are used to express a sentiment other than their literal meaning. It doesn’t really rain cats and dogs, as the world and his wife knows.

I’ve always been fascinated by foreign idioms; they give us a unique insight into the culture that uses them. Did you know that in German you can say “to live like a maggot in bacon” instead of “to live the life of luxury”? Idioms can tell us a lot about what matters to a nation. They’re a window to the soul.

“Every day we use various kinds of cups in order to replenish for our bodies with a sip of water, a cup of dark coffee or a glass of fresh fruit juice. Looking at mugs in the cupboard, we seem to spend about 3 seconds to consider which cup shall be taken according to the contents. Of course if you have a favorite cup, it tends to be used continuously. This is probably the moment when the taste of individual is reflected.”
