Finders Keepers

Our brand identity work for Edinburgh bar and restaurant Rabble features in Inspo Finds Collection I, the forthcoming publication from the keen-eyed tastemakers over at Inspo Finds. Thanks again to Naomi and Sarah for including us alongside 364 equally talented creative types. Dropping on 7th February, the book is now available for preorder!

Making a Splash

To round up another year working with Scottish Swimming, we recently branded the National Short Course Championships and National Diving Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool, here in Edinburgh. Beyond major events like these, we’ve been continuing to support them as they roll out their Learn to Swim programme across the country.

Winning Minds

While we aren’t competitive types, it’s nice to get a bit of recognition, so we were delighted to learn that our collaboration with illustrator Aad Goudappel for Majedie Journal issue 6 was selected by the jury as the Merit Winner in the 3×3 Illustration Annual! That’s celebrated mathematician and ‘oddball’s oddball’ Paul Erdos in case you were wondering.

Kids Now

The switched-on sorts from The Design Kids recently stopped by our studio for a coffee and chat with Chris, who regaled them with tales of his dad’s epic record collection among other things. Judging by the number of prospective applications we get on a daily basis, competition is tougher than ever for recent graduates, so respect to The Design Kids for bridging the gap between students and the industry.

This Way, That Way

The latest issue of the Majedie Journal just landed back on our desks and it’s a thought-provoking read, if we do say so ourselves! For issue seven, the theme is perspective, so we once again collaborated with lensman extraordinaire Victor Albrow to create a gravity-defying hourglass that encourages the viewer to consider things from an alternative angle.

Going to Plan

Boy, do we ever love an architecture practice round here! Last week we launched the brand new identity and website for our friends at Halliday Fraser Munro, who have a seriously heavyweight portfolio of architecture, design and masterplanning projects under their belts. With this in mind, we created a bold, image-led site that lets their award-winning work do the talking.

Rise Above

We once again led a workshop at Graphic Design Festival Scotland, and for this year, inspired the universally terrible state of global politics and the music of Black Flag, we asked our participants to come up with the identity for a progressive and caring political party (imagine!). They did us proud with everything from verses by Kendrick and glass half-full optimism, to sweets shaped like boobs. Bravo!

Aww Shucks

We recently completed the identity for the White Horse Oyster & Seafood Bar, a slick new hostelry that launches this month on the site of the oldest pub on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile – which dates all the way back to 1742, fact fans. Be sure to pop past and shell out (sorry) on some tasty British seafood and fancy booze next time you are passing.

Welcome Back

So how did we follow up Edinburgh International Festival’s iconic ‘Welcome World’ campaign that gained them (and us!) so much positive feedback in 2017? A simple but effective progression that celebrates the Festival’s seventieth year of welcoming performers, locals and visitors to the festival city. Looks great in the Edinburgh sunshine.

Linn House for Chivas

A lovingly restored Victorian lodge in the Highlands of Scotland, Linn House is the exclusive retreat of Chivas Regal, so when we were invited to work on the new identity for this illustrious invite-only venue, we didn’t wait to be asked twice. A continuous golden ‘pour’ runs across all applications of the new identity, a reference to the nearby Linn Falls and the water of life itself.
