When FiveFootsix invited Asako Masunouchi to take part in their charity event ‘The Art of Ping Pong’ she jumped at the chance! Now in it’s third year this exciting initiative raises money for BBC Children in Need by auctioning bespoke ping pong paddles created by influential artists. The striking designs, including Asako’s fun piece, will be exhibited at KK Outlet; launching on the 5th November and continuing throughout the month. You can get involved in the online auction by following @TAOPP_LDN on Twitter and using the hashtag #theartofpingpong. To see more from Asako’s portfolio click here.

When Sara Mulvanny works on a book cover project you are always guaranteed a clever and considered design. Sara’s elegant lettering dances across the cover for Dana Veldon’s new book, ‘Finding Yourself in the Kitchen’ and her clean, crisp illustrated elements, with their subtle textures add a warmth to the design. Her beautiful type also introduces each chapter through the book and her black and white spot illustrations feature throughout. The perfect addition to your kitchen bookshelf!
