  • Liberty Christmas Windows
    Liberty Christmas WindowsBased entirely on The Nutcracker, and in conjunction with The Royal Ballet, Liberty’s Christmas Windows 2016 focused on key and memorable scenes. Their infamous prints were utilised across all of the windows, in varying ways – from fans to wallpaper to gift wrapping. The print even provided inspiration for the shape of laser-cut elements like the gate and skirting boards.
  • Fifi & Friends
    Fifi & FriendsAn all-natural collection of bath and body essentials for babies and toddlers. All the packaging and brand collateral has a bright white base, is unfussy and ultimately clear in order to reflect the brand’s ethos. Supporting accents in the form of gender-neutral pops of colour not only separated out the categories, but it also brought a playfulness that was required for a child-friendly product range. Having launched the brand online, we wanted to create hype via social media channels, reaching
  • Oh Boston
    Oh BostonIn early 2017, Michelle Oh and Rachel Boston – independent jewellery designers in their own right –came together to open their first flagship store in London, Oh Boston.

This ensures we still have the vibrant colour but retain the shimmer that is in the stock. Each side is then foiled and finished with a matching edge.
  • Rose Uniacke
    Rose UniackeFor the launch of their new Simply Chairs range, high-end furniture designer and merchant, Rose Uniacke wanted to create a new layout which they would then use for future projects and printed catalogues. We worked closely with the client to create a modern and simply layout that adhered to their brand ethos, that was within their budget, and that still looked and felt luxury.
  • Lesley & Glen
    Lesley & GlenA foiled and flat-litho invitation both fit into a laser- and die-cut wallet. The couple wanted a more modern take on a wedding invitation and given the time of year, were quite keen for the use of red. The concept of the solid block running through the centre is an idea that we ran throughout each element for consistency and to create a completely different overall look depending on which invitation is in the sleeve.
