Just in time for Christmas comes the latest issue of the Majedie Journal and (if you’ll forgive us) its a cracker! With creative contributions from Ilka & Franz, Giacomo Bagnara and Jasper Rietman, not to mention this bang on-trend cover shot from Susan Castillo, we are pretty proud of this one…

Guiding Light

Having masterminded the identity for Port Edgar Marina, we were asked to rebrand their outdoor and lifestyle store, Bosun’s Locker. With our keen knowledge of local history (and a tiny bit of help from the internet) we considered the islands of the Firth of Forth and discovered that Scotland’s oldest lighthouse, on the Isle of May, was called the Beacon. What better name for a maritime-inspired business?

Here goes!

We are just adding the finishing touches to a brand identity job for affordable homebuilders Here – including the name, identity design, website and these rather lovely business cards, featuring a one colour foil on G.F Smith’s pioneering Extract stock, made from disposable coffee cups. After all, we consume enough of the stuff…

Outside Broadcasting

We just finished up on a naming, identity and website design project for our internet-making friends at Inside & Out. Their previous incarnation didn’t quite cut it in the fast paced digital domain, so we worked up something bold, bright and approachable that (thanks to the I and O of the logo) still manages to convey their quick-fire coding skills.

Rock On

We are getting very excited for Aftershow, our exhibition at Leith Theatre in collaboration with Edinburgh International Festival. Before its doors closed in the 1980s Leith Theatre played host to everyone from AC/DC to Thin Lizzy and Kraftwerk. When we learned more about this rich musical history we were inspired to do something to help the recent community efforts to restore the space, so we have designed a series of banners for that pay tribute to some of these performances. Visit the show, buy some merch and help us raise funds for this incredible venue!

High Flyers

Look what just landed! Issue 8 of the Majedie Journal, complete with a cover image by the talented Luke Stephenson, who we have wanted to work with for a while now. Apparently the Tawny Owl flew away for a while during the shoot but then thought better of it…

Ship Ahoy

Big things are happening down at Port Edgar Marina in South Queensferry on the outskirts of Edinburgh, and we are delighted to have delivered their all-new brand identity, including this super sized application on the side of the main building. The logo gives a nod to the distinctive boat sheds and the tides of the Firth of Forth, while keen-eyed sailors will already have spotted the letters P and E from the maritime alphabet…

Sunshine State

We are delighted to have created the identity for Edinburgh International Festival’s Light On The Shore with Edinburgh Gin series at the spectacular Leith Theatre – August is going to be a very enjoyable month indeed! Thanks again to our pals at Hungry Sandwich for the sweet animation skills.

Behold! The first of our work for Edinburgh International Festival 2018. It’s a blink-and-you-probably-won’t-miss-it tote complete with uplifting message and custom dyed-colours. If you weren’t lucky enough to cop one of these at the Festival launch earlier this month, they’ll be available to purchase very soon.
