MartinSmith approached us to help reposition the company and reflect their status as master cabinet makers.

Beautiful photography, by Gary Parrott, in conjunction with careful art direction created images which captured the quality and atmosphere of the company's work.

A balance of crafted copywriting and delicate typography complete the package.

"You want to use Odor Eaters for what...?"

After he stopped laughing, the director for Combe International sent us 50 meters of Oder Eater material. It worked a treat.

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.

Farmview Dairies wanted to update its packaging.

We went much further and helped them take ownership of the very word that defines their industry.

This approach has created a truly distinctive brand in an otherwise predictable market.

'Builders and Students'; this was this target market for Farmview's brand-less diluted orange drink.

The combination of a down-to-earth name with super hero imagery delivered a 300% increase in sales. This success led to further capital investment for an additional line to produce a second flavour. A third flavour is waiting for a release date.

For builders and students everywhere, happiness comes in a bottle.

Diocese of Down & Dromore

Client

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.

Belfast Bible College

Client

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.
