Effektive Site Updates

We have been working on some nice updates  to the website lately as part of a larger studio branding exercise which includes a new ‘selected work’ feature window, a new identities section and all new studio fonts, new foiled stationery on Colourplan, presentation templates, internal and external studio signage and a new quarterly studio promotional print piece which will be available soon (More on this soon). Keep an eye on the site for further updates soon. Thanks to Cargo for the updates.

World Cup Wallchart

Theres a few doing the rounds at the moment with the World Cup nearly upon us. This is a lovely typographic wall chart designed by David Watson of  TrebleSeven and is all for a good cause with all proceeds raised going to Soccer Aid | UNICEF. The poster is available to buy directly from here – its only £7 + £3 P&P. Alternatively Magma all also selling it from their Clerkenwell / Covent Garden Shops. Go on, get one for the studio wall and do some good at the same time. See more images here.

JOQ Branding Preview

Here is some preview images of some work we have just about completed for a new London based media agency called JOQ. We have completed a full new identity package including 4 sub brands and flexible secondary colour palette, print stationery materials and a new bespoke website which is currently in development. More news on this project launching soon.

Sorry Im Late Tees

The ‘Sorry Im Late’ Tees just arrived in the studio and are looking great, thanks again to Søren at Superfancy for all his help. Our favourite is the grey one but they are available now in White/Grey/Black and Navy. They are printed on American Apparel Standard Tees and have a nice slim fit. Get over there and find out more and before you ask, no you don’t get a discount.

Simpson’s Brochure Pack

Simpson’s is a well established as one of Aberdeen’s top hotels and finest restaurants. They recently approached us to design a new sales brochure pack which reflected the quality and style of the hotel as well as the variety of services and accommodation options they offer. See more of the project here.

Sorry I’m Late T-Shirt Available Now

We were delighted to be asked to guest design a T-shirt for Danish proprietor of designer loveliness Superfancy. Here is the finished design which is now available to order in a variety of colours and sizes here. Thank to Søren at Superfancy for the opportunity and were excited to see some finished Tee’s arrive at the studio.

Italian Bikes Photography

Here is a second set of images taken whilst on a recent trip to Pisa, Florence and Lucca. This set consist mostly of the beautiful old Italian buildings, doorways and in particular lots of lovely bikes leaning against rustic italian walls like the ones above. We are thinking of compiling a photgraphic book using some of these shots, so watch this space. See the full set here.
