• Keepers CD packaging

    The artwork for Trevor Jones' album Keepers was inspired by a photograph taken by his girlfriend, photographer Di Holmes.

    We set a contrast to the provocative nature of the aged bellwethers in the photograph - the 'keepers', with clean white silhouettes of the three items.

  • Housing leaflets

    The brief from South Oxfordshire District Council for this series of Housing information leaflets was simple; keep it simple.

    A stylised illustration showing some local landmarks within the housing 'h' was the basis of the design, which was used in subtle colour variations.

  • Dairy Crest safety poster

    The many benefits of Pristine Conditions manual handling tool are displayed on this visually simple design for Dairy Crest.

    Our creative team produced all aspects of the poster, from the initial idea to completed artwork, as our brief was simply, "we need a poster".

  • Robert's concert poster

    This poster was created for our very own Rob Digweed, to promote his concert of classical compositions at St. Peter's Church in Nottingham.

    The contrast of traditional fonts and modern design, combined with Craig Mulcahy's photography made this job a total pleasure. Concert was cool too!

  • Travelbound promotion

    Music and concert tour promoters Travelbound - one of our latest clients, were extremely impressed by our innovative design solutions.

    Our brief was to design promotion for formal and informal concerts which could be used as A3 posters, while keeping the same impact as A5 flyers.

  • Shuzzed album artwork

    There aren't many french horn jazz artists, so we were excited to work with Jim Rattigan on artwork for his unique jazz album, Shuzzed.

    The album includes jazz standards and original tunes. Jim wanted a modern design that also gave a nod to the iconic Blue Note record covers.

  • Jones' debut album

    We have a long-standing friendship with Trevor Jones which has opened the door to us working on many more music-related design projects.

    Hopeland is his debut solo album and the design was inspired by an old bible found in Barry's loft and a Trev- after-too-much-red-wine photoshoot.

  • The Manfreds album

    We were honoured to work with legendary rhythm 'n' blues beat combo The Manfreds on the artwork for their Let 'em Roll album.

    This wasn't the cover design they finally decided upon, but it was our favourite so we're giving it pride of place in our portfolio.
