The Guildford School of Acting provides training for those pursuing careers in performing arts. We updated GSA's branding and delivered a solution reflects both their heritage and their future. This branding was then applied to a mobile ready WordPress website, stationery, prospectus, advertising templates and ongoing marketing material.

Allport Packaging

Allport Packaging is a UK-based specialist in export packaging. We designed and built a mobile friendly WordPress website, which places emphasis on their attention to detail. As part of the brand refresh we created a video animation, redesigned printed materials, developed an iPad app and photographed Allport's warehouse to produce a
collection of imagery.

Concrete Sketchbook

Concrete Sketchbook is an online shop for modern furniture, art and prints. We created a logo to represent the culture of street art and gallery spaces. The end result is eye-catching, but flexible enough to work on any media; including furniture. The website is powered by OScommerce and has PayPal integration for payment processing.
