Good design must balance aesthetic vision with a clear knowledge of what appeals to your crowd. We design with our heads as well as our hearts to get this balance right – however simple or complex the task may be.
As well as a thorough skill set in the digital world, our studio has its background in both contemporary design and fine art. In-house, we collectively hold a broad set of tools to draw from, which means we can develop sophisticated visual communications for your project.
Whether you’re a new or existing business or organisation, we can work with you to build refined, contemporary and memorable branding that encapsulates your core values and communicates them to the world.
We’ve been creating and producing brochures, books and other printed pieces for 20 years. Whatever size job you require, we can drive the creative direction and design, supply original professional photography and organise high-quality printing to help enhance your project’s impact.
We’ll work with you to create the ideal look and feel for your site, and to discuss bespoke functions that work best for you and your audiences needs.
Building your website
Once designs have been agreed we will liaise closely with your chosen web developer to create the online presence you’ve been hoping for.
The majority of illustrations used in our graphics are drawn digitally in house. Digital illustration allows for resizing and quick adaptations to be made for different applications. But on occasion we actually work with real art materials; we’ll draw, cut and hand-print if a project calls for something a little different.
We also have several associate illustrators with differing styles that we can commission.
Giclee printing on 100% cotton fine art and photographic papers is also one of our production specialities. We can do this in house at our studio.
Photographic images are one of the hardest things to get right. We’re always up for shooting on location, in our studio or developing a range of images that are unique to your project.
We have a large stock of our own abstract work as well as a nature-based portfolio. Being expert in Photoshop also helps develop the qualities required for integrating image work with bespoke design.
Feel free to have a chat about your needs and see if we can help develop a unique solution without having to resort to an image library.
Large Format Wall Art
We have been creating and installing wall art in corporate spaces for over a decade from single images shot for a project on location to full wall panoramas. We have several techniques from washable direct-to-wall coverings to traditionally stretched canvases or printed images wrap mounted on solid core panels with a scuff proof surface lamination.
Interior Design Specification
We have specified furniture, colours, materials and finishes for well over 20 business centres. We have worked on commercial renovations, heritage buildings and ground up design & build projects.
Way Finding, Interpretation & Features
Some of our most enjoyable work has been developing concepts for trails. Amongst other projects, we have designed interactive features and markers for a wild-life poetry trail and a wild life QR code trail with species lists accessed via a bespoke mobile website.
Hand Built Sculptures & Installations
We are currently designing concepts for destination sculptures and artistic installations for gardens, parks and trails that naturally incorporate light, sound or water. Our designs can incorporate structural features and bespoke horticultural schemes. Please watch this space as our ideas develop and we achieve our first commissions!
Beautiful design is a potent way to make an impression. Yet whether you’re using a website or printed material to reach your audience, the quality of your content will make or break an entire design project.
In other words: the efficacy of your communication may be diluted if accompanying words aren’t up to scratch.
This is why we’re happy to offer you exceptional copywriting as part of our service. Our copywriters have extensive experience across a vast range of industries, can work with you to develop and hone your unique tone of voice, and support your project with excellent research skills.
Depending on your requirements, we can provide fresh new copy for an entire website, a light touch of adjustments to existing copy, copy-editing and proofreading, or creative prowess on headlines and straplines.
