Lushice, an exciting new brand of cocktail-based alcoholic sorbets. The site is fully responsive and built using WordPress as the CMS platform, allowing Lushice founder Laura Lewis to easily update content herself. We also created an integrated blog page and newsletter subscription/distribution system so Laura can promote her business and keep her followers updated on the latest sorbet news!
Explosions d’Émotions‘. The luxury packaging is crafted in tactile white suedel paper stock debossed with a design inspired by the individual fragrances.
Peake Projects online, with a new, responsive site featuring larger images and quick dropdown menus to navigate and view projects quickly.
Uppercase magazine’s call for letterforms inspired by office supplies. You can see our little paperclip ‘take stuff from work’ graphic in the second slide above. It was clearly a popular topic as the reader submissions run to a dozen pages (more on the third slide including a very fiddly looking alphabet made from pencil shavings). Another highlight in issue 19 is an article regarding the giant engraved letterhead stylings of yesteryear. All good stuff and definitely worth a look.
East End Prints. We have been included as part of their Caravan Style Picks section which this quarter has been guest-curated by stylist Emily Chalmers. The prints measure 45cm x 60cm (image size: 34cm x 49cm) and have been output on 315gsm soft textured natural white paper. Each design is signed and numbered in an edition of 30.
Madness. Big shouts go out to Jamie Chalmers at Anglo Management who led the project and their in-house programmer David Reis who took care of the entire build.
Continuing our work with From Brighton with Love, Frank has designed a new website and online shop where you can purchase designer Sally Evans’ lovely seaside inspired knitted home accessories. We also designed the identity which we talked about here.
We’ve created posters and a blog site for Scout Films’ first short film Drone Strike, which has just won the grand prize at its first film festival outing in Rhode Island. Well done chaps, next stop, the Oscars!
www.shift-4.com. Designed and built by us, this is a responsive build so it looks great on all devices. The site has some neat navigation so you can quickly find the camera you need to shoot your next zombie rom com with. Or you can use the search function and quickly add items to a wishlist and have them emailed straight to your inbox. Big shout-out to Amy Swan from Shift 4 who added all the gear (there’s quite a bit as you can see) and the rest of the content via the website’s CMS.
Frank has designed the identity for new independent film production company Scout Films.
Frank has designed the book jacket for Last Alive, author Mark Yarwood’s latest blood-soaked thriller. It’s the third in a series of crime novels centred around Edmonton in North London and so the cover features atmospheric images from the local area captured in all their grittiness by photographer Joanne Wallis. And as the killer taunts his victims’ families by text message, we used a retro bitmap font and smiley device to hint at this element of the story.
Apparently tomorrow (June 21st) is International T-Shirt Day. So here is a shameless plug for Frank’s own T Shop. To celebrate it’s FREE DELIVERY for tomorrow only, just use the code: TDAY2013 when you check out.
These spammers are getting very clever. I almost fell for this incredibly convincing ‘winning ticket’ from the ‘Bill Gate International Lottery Foundation’.
Slightly belated perhaps – as she’s been with us for a couple of months now – but Frank is happy to welcome designer Lizzy Barnes to the team. Lizzy originally hails from Norfolk, loves great ideas, hoarding paper samples, toy cameras, tea, biscuits and Elvis (but probably not in that order).
Our Nigel is just off on another cycling adventure, this time it’s “Arch to Arc” – as in Marble Arch, London to the Arc de Triomphe, Paris. He’s cycling in aid of Cancer Research UK and donations to his Just Giving page can be made here. He’s travelling with a Go Pro camera attached to his seat stem so we’ll hopefully be seeing a time lapse movie of the whole trip in a week or two. Good luck Nige!
Frank’s long term creative partnership with Caravan – the eclectic east London boutique of lovely things – continues with the launch of their new website. This is the third incarnation (hence the 3.0) of Caravan we have created and the site now incorporates a WordPress-powered online shop, client-friendly CMS, and fully integrated blog. Big thanks go out to Caravan founder Emily Chalmers for her patience and ongoing support throughout the project and also over the years!
As big birding fans, Frank needed no extra encouragement when creating this gull-based identity and website for From Brighton with Love – a knitted home accessories startup run from the seaside town by designer Sally Evans. As well as the embroidered labels and badges above, we created business cards and the lovely rubber stamp version below.
Frank has designed a new website and online shop for London-based Letterpress printers Harrington & Squires. Run by designer/printers Chrissie Charlton and Vicky Fullick (in a space only 288 picas wide), Harrington & Squires take on bespoke commissioned projects, such as invitations or stationary, design products such as limited edition books, calendars, magnets or cards, and also run workshops where they teach the basics of hand setting type and letterpress printing using Adana presses.
And in case you were wondering… Harrington & Squires is named after two letterpress tutors from Hornsey College of Art in the 60s (Bob and Horace).
website and stationery for the very lovely advertising industry recruitment legend Luisa Shelton. We worked closely with Luisa in order to create a site with a personal feel that reflects her own unique style and quirky take on the world. A helping hand on the character illustrations came from old pal Steve, over at MonkeyChops.
