TDC at the double


Two delicious new projects from the The Design Conspiracy; Majdan Rocks and Fitzgerald’s Clothiers… First up is the identity for a new jewellery designer, Majdan Rocks. In developing the visual identity, TDC took inspiration from the shapes of the the products designs as well as iconic shapes of an array of jewels, but it was the diamond form that stood out. Say TDC “The final mark we created was simple and bold with a bit of an edge.” A […]

SAS wind the dial


London agency SAS have completed the identity and brand programme for Herbert Smith Freehills – a top 100 law firm born from the merger of two leading firms from opposite points of the compass (UK and Oz, not unlike ourselves). “At the heart of the new brand is a powerful and simple idea – that Herbert Smith Freehills people “guide their clients through an increasingly complex, challenging and unpredictable world.

Team Karoshi make it onto the big screen


There’s fewer things in this life we take more satisfaction from than a good ol’ simple and smart identity solution. That’s right. Breath it in. Yeh. Tasty.

IWANT {London}

Awesome agencies

We started this little blog of ours as simply a bit of a social experiment and a way of cataloguing all the great stuff we unearthed the world over. And there’s a lot of great stuff out there. Every now and then however, you unearth a little gem. Without naming names we think there’s already quite a few graphical trinkets within these four virtual walls, but recently we fell upon these beguiling buccaneers, namely IWANT. Plying […]

Profiles – Nick Finney {NB Studio}


Being one half of an outstanding brand and communications studio is one thing, but doing it with a smile and use of wit is truly a feet in itself. Originality of thought and style has been the hallmarks of Nick Finney as he made his way from Pentagram to setting up the award winning studio NB. With seemingly effortless ease Nick manages to execute the simplistic of solutions to briefs that would have other designers running […]

SomeOne’s pretty polly


A week or so ago, whilst writing up a SomeOne new release, our rhetoric included the line ‘another week, another SomeOne launch‘. I said that in jest, at the time. But here we are, literally, another week and, yes, another big SomeOne launch (and it’s only Monday). So, come fly with SomeOne and behold, their latest endowment to the world – Stelios-backed low-cost African airline FastJet, who launch their maiden flights from east Africa at the […]
