About Us

We are Cape & Monocle (Ben & Laura). We create beautiful static and animated artwork. We’ve been working in the design industry for over a decade and pride ourselves in being able to speak plain English and provide our clients with very clear long term creative strategy and artwork that will cut through the noise to create the impact you need. We work with a mix of major labels, larger agencies and smaller independent clients. We’re passionate about the projects we take on and enjoy long term partnerships with all of our clients.

We specialise in projects for the music industry but also work regularly alongside other larger agencies and with clients directly for the advertising and publishing industry.

What we can do for you:

Art Direction and Creative Direction is what we specialise in. We can provide you with a clear creative strategy for your project and provide you with any of the following:

3d and 2d key art. Style Frames. Animation for TV, animated music videos, social media content (static & animated), album/single creatives, small scale websites and artist portals. Or just about anything you might need on a project.

We also work alongside larger agencies for white label work and creative consultancy.



What our clients say:

“The Capes have been instrumental in helping us achieve a clear longterm creative vision for our artist. From conception to delivery, their input has been on point and the feedback we have received off the back of their work speaks for itself. We couldn’t give them a higher recommendation.”

Owyn, Jonas Rathsman’s Management


“We’ve been working with Ben and team for nearly a decade now. Together we’ve grown exponentially and their work has helped us take Moda from a dimly-lit basement in Lincoln to being a celebrated record label and events company that now caters to thousands of people in venues all over the world, each year. We wouldn’t trust anyone else with our art direction”

Andy George, co-founder of Moda


“The team at Cape & Monocle have supplied us with some incredible pieces of art over the years. They’re easy to deal with, always up for trying new ideas and consistently provide work of the highest standard. They’re always at the top of our contact list when beginning to think about album creatives and look forward to working with them on many more projects to come.”
