Welcome to Honkus, a Red Nose Day monster

10 March 2011

Sheffield based Fripp Design & Research was responsible for the design of Honkus, one of three 'monster' Red Noses which sell for a pound each, with 70p going to the Comic Relief charity. During the design stage, Comic Relief required photorealistic images of the proposed concept for sign-off. Working to a tight deadline, Fripp produced its 2D hand-rendered creative idea into a tangible product enabling the lead design to be signed-off and the master mould to be created.

“Although the process was demanding and required a high level of skill, all executed within a limited time frame, being able to contribute to Red Nose day in some small way was not a prospect we would have wanted to miss out on," says Tom Fripp. "And in keeping with the spirit of the event the team was happy to give its time to working on this project for free.  We are just hoping the public take the new noses to heart and buy them in large numbers.”
