Welcome. We are a design consultancy with more than twenty years' experience developing a range of visual communications for a variety of clients.

To every project we aim to bring insight, direction and great design to understand and expand our clients' vision and aspirations, help them find answers, and produce something creative and effective that they (and we) will love and be proud of.

Ultimately, we're here to help them do better business, whatever that may mean for each of them.


Our clients are varied and international.

They're businesses involved in a range of commercial activities.

They're publishers of books and magazines. They're charities and overseas aid organisations.

They're art dealers and galleries, architects and landscape designers, record companies, musicians and composers, theatre companies, business trainers, sports organisations, events organisers...

Our projects are often integrated brand identity, web and print design solutions combining strategy with creative delivery. But we're just as happy to design a one-off poster or a book jacket if that's what you need.

Our websites are all bespoke and our print design is crafted with attention to detail.

And, yes, our best work really does arise from a great working partnership with our clients. And coffee.

If you have a project you'd like to chat through with us, wed be delighted to hear from you.

High Spirits

High Spirits are top-level events and media consultants based in London but working throughout Europe. The directors, former television news journalists Laura Dugdale and Tine van Houts, initially asked us to design some print material but in the process of focussing their marketing activities towards the corporate sector it soon became clear they needed an overhaul of their complete visual identity and, most importantly, a new website.
