Diocese of Down & Dromore

Outline

Traditional and pioneering; the tension generated by these conflicting characteristics help define The Diocese of Down and Dromore. Central to the success of the identity project was the re-crafting of the diocesan crest and careful negotiating with the Office of the Chief Herald of Ireland. The result is a modern heraldic achievement within a D-shaped shield capable of clear reproduction at small scale.

Hysterectic has been described as, "a rich photographic exhibition 
and poetic book that blends fairytale with reality. It is without doubt unusual, even disturbing".

However, the beautiful design and production with which we brought the book to life is something to behold.

Belfast Bible College

Belfast Bible College

Outline

The Belfast Bible College website was developed as part of a broad rationalisation of the institution’s complete communication material.

Reducing the dependency on printed collateral was a consideration. However, a more significant aspect was developing online alternatives to the traditional prospectus.

The result is a sophisticated on-the-fly course filter which allows prospective students to quickly narrow and compare courses based on specific parameters.

All website content is controlled and managed directly by the college through Edditt, our powerful content management system.

This course selection facility is also augmented with an online application system.

Part One of a set of publications for the RUA which showcase selected work from the annual exhibition.

Removed for two years from its natural setting in the Ulster Museum the exhibition was housed initially in Harland and Wolff's Drawing Office. The venue for each year became the inspiration for the catalogue design and additional publicity collateral.

There are times when graphic wit is required to help us see past cliched terminology and engage with truth. This was one of those times.

The central theme of transformation was depicted in a series of illustrations which bring a challenging but light-hearted and humorous feel to an important book for our generation.

Belfast Bible College

Belfast Bible College

Outline

For a number of years the college had been aware that its prospectus and marketing material were not as effective as they should be for a modern education provider.

In collaboration with the college we set about rationalising the written content, assessing how best to refine and control the flow of information online and in print.

Commissioned photography, by Susie Rea, brilliantly captured the dynamic of the college, which in conjunction with a strong typographic structure created a backbone for the brands visual framework.

Applied to print literature, online prospectus, advertising, exhibition material, and office collateral, the communication strategy has positioned the college to deal with the next three to five years of growth with ease.

And we also got to inject new life into an established logo along the way.

An insurance company with a social conscience? It's true.

Considered refinement of a classic modernist typeface was the perfect logo solution for one of the UK's most celebrated young architectural practices.

Our approach to the typographic design reflected the practice's ethos and the logotype development has become part of the company's presentation; as an explanation of the attention to detail which defines their work.
