Concrete Centre – Futurebuild 2019

Concrete Futures focuses on innovation and digitisation with a play-on-words to infer a safe, secure future.

We were asked to design an abstract and contemporary backdrop for the graphic wall of this feature.
Multicoloured lines representing different sectors, different professions and cultures all converge into a single band across the stand towards the Concrete Futures logotype.
The cut through the words carries the movement in the direction of progression.

Glouglou Wine Bar

A venture on to the high-street for Severn with the brand identity, promotional literature and website for a new wine bar with a difference.

Everything they serve is sourced directly from the growers, farmers and fishermen, and wines from producers with strong environmental and ethical policies using as little intervention as possible.

We decided that the idea of low intervention would be our starting point and so the logo just had to be hand-drawn and uncomplicated to follow this same principal.

Traditional skills where used as much as possible, sign-writer Josh Monk was commissioned to dress the shopfront and the interior contains hand-made furniture and a large scale hand-painted mural by Matt Sewell.

Glouglou is the most successful French linguistic export since ooh-la-la…

So it’s a splash, it’s a spill, it’s a flower (some wines smell like that), it’s the top of a tap on a barrel. It fits the words and it fits the sound of glouglou.

“It’s so fresh, so invigorating, so glouglou.”

WikiNative

Identity and website for a Wikipedia editing agency.

WikiNative removes or corrects false information shown on Wikipedia pages and brings the content within the complex guidelines of the online encyclopaedia.

Designing their site, we kept it to-the-point, a text only approach avoided any padding-out with photos of notebooks and coffee cups and fingers on keyboards: unnecessary, non-representative content perhaps?

Strong colours give high-impact, putting things right there in front of users, they take notice.
