We were honoured to be invited to rebrand the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain. We were brought in to articulate the brand proposition both in tone and visually. A challenging project but a great result. The brief outlined that the words Great Britain should subordinate to the main words in the name – National Youth Choirs. How to achieve this when the only option for such a long name is the use of an acronym… whilst also making a subtle nod to their musical raison d’être? The simple solution that we came up with involves using the ‘GB’ element to reference the time sequence annotation that you find on a musical stave.

Development of a graphic corporate identity system, logo design and subsequent implementation programme for the regeneration of an iconic West Midlands building on behalf of Urban Splash. The logo references both its heyday in the 20s and 30s as a major tyre production centre – and also the profile of the building itself, whilst industrial sized ‘super graphics’ integrate the wayfinding system into the architectural theme of the building itself.

One of the projects that we are most often approached about is our root and branch rebrand of the multi Sunday Times award winning FindersKeepers. It has been a major success and has pretty much exceeding all the client’s hopes and expectations. In 2011 we were asked to formulate a plan that would reinforce and expand the market position of Oxfordshire’s largest independent property agency business as it fronted up to its national high street chain agency competitors. “Make us into a sharp instrument rather than a blunt tool” was the thrust of the brief from Dan Channer, the group’s marketing director.
In short, our solution uses colour strategically. We took ownership of vibrant hues and applied them to everything from property boards to agency shop fascias and vehicles to fully wrapped taxis. The result, according to commissioned post roll-out target audience research, was massively increased perceived critical mass – “FindersKeepers seems to be everywhere”. As mentioned, a particularly unusual and interesting aspect of the branding project was to use 5 different colour lettings boards in order to reflect its independent, young and fresh positioning. We were subsequently asked back to refresh the brand again in late 2015 when we made a series of significant but subtle changes that will keep the 9 office business at the forefront of the market.
