Ayrshire Chocolate Fountains
There are many chocolate fountain companies to choose from, and our client wanted to stand out as being the best in the area.
We produced a simple brochure to capture the eye and delight the senses. Using the image of a strawberry being caressed in white chocolate, along with solid blocks of colour – rich red and milk chocolate, the client's goals were achieved in a powerful way.
Our aim was to raise the design of their product catalogues to reflect and reinforce the quality and design of their product and accessory ranges.
We created clean, fresh brochure designs, using contrasting colours to complement each range. The project involved design direction at photography shoots, collating all product details and liaising with printers in USA.
Inter-Tec provides innovative design, analysis and certification solutions to their aerospace clients, worldwide. They deliver the highest standards of expertise through a service that demonstrates their unique technical skills and proactive, communicative, accessible approach.
Given Inter-Tec's international standing, impressive, blue-chip client base, and rapid growth, it was imperative that we developed a strong brand, along with brochures and exhibition graphics that reflected their outstanding success.
Loewe UK Limited
Our client wanted us to design a high quality brochure that reflected the Loewe brand. The design was based around the very distinctive 'button' on all of their products and included a strapline developed by our copywriter: Experience More... at the touch of a button.
This brochure was to promote 'custom home entertainment systems' linked with Loewe products being promoted at Harrods: "With the demands of contemporary living, the sanctuary of home plays an ever more important role in quality of life. Imagine leisure, pleasure and home entertainment, on demand and at the touch of a button, the freedom to choose."
We used alternating spreads from silver and full colour, to duotone silver and black. We embossing the metallic effect cover with the button symbol, creating a truly atmospheric design.
Spirit AeroSystems (Europe)
We were asked to generate a creative concept for Spirit AeroSystems Annual Awards Ceremony. The concept had to apply to staging design and lighting, with links through to the invitation and event programmes.
Our concept was based on a 'bubbles' theme, and we produced a stage set symbolising the shape of aeroplane. Two side screens featured video images of bubbles, and at key moments, real bubbles were released from the centre of the stage. The invitations featured a detachable 'bubble' RSVP, and bubbles featured strongly on the event programmes.
Art Dental Laboratory
Art Dental Laboratory is a London-based boutique laboratory producing high-quality cosmetic restorations. They required a wallet folder, letterhead, compliment slip, NCR sets and business cards. The design would have to be consistent across all collateral, so they would appear totally professional when presenting their new service to dentists.
We created a strong design using only one colour - black. This generates massive impact, is highly memorable and keeps production costs low - all crucial factors when building a business.
NSCJA – North Strathclyde Community Justice Authority
We designed and printed the Area Plan brochure for NSCJA - Strengthening Community Justice Together.
The subject had to be sensitively interpreted as it covered the management of offenders, setting expectations for tackling crime and reducing re-offending in Scotland.
We worked closely with the team to agree how best to depict the topics and make it easy to digest the information. We developed a strong concept using stylized figures with bold colours to hold the reader's attention.
Countryside Management Consultancy
With this client, our challenge is always to combine high quality academic literature with supporting material, drawing in the reader with a clear, interesting flow of information.
