This week we shared our love of JWT Brazil’s work rebranding children’s cancer treatment with superheroes (above), welcomed the extraordinary Alan Fletcher archive and toasted the success of George Butler at the V&A Illustration Awards. We then looked at The Guardian’s new data-driven coffee shop – and the backlash –and wondered whether The Rolling Stones are right to impose a TV blackout on their Glastonbury set.
