We’re innovators. We question the accepted, draw inspiration from everywhere and continually wonder what might be possible. And we’re designers. We use our tried and tested process to mould insight into real products and supporting digital platforms.

We aim to create social, economic and environmental good with every job we take on. To date, we’ve delivered game-changing results to global brands and more modest outfits in Europe, Asia and North America.

We create physical products that better connect with people and places.

ValuesIntegrity & confidentiality


New customers, and those coming back for more great design, receive confidential and enthusiastic service, whoever they are. We’re not keen on industry jargon either, so we talk to you in plain English. We’re delighted you’ve chosen to work with us and commit ourselves to delivering groundbreaking design, on budget and on time.

ValuesYou’re not just a ‘client’ to us


The term ‘client’ suggests a disconnect between commissioner and designer. In reality our design buyers are highly involved in our process and central to the team. We’ll immerse ourselves in your brand and listen carefully to your thoughts and ideas. We’re also not afraid to stretch the project into exciting territory you hadn’t yet considered. After all, that’s why you hired us!

ValuesSustainability means everything to us


With each pencil stroke and mouse click we aim to create social and economic good, while reducing environmental harm. Our ethical commitment impacts which partner companies we’ll work with… and those we won’t! We align ourselves with sustainable education initiatives and it goes without saying we brew delicious, fair-trade coffee and own no tiger skin rugs.

ValuesSize isn’t everything


Last year we added 50 percent more design talent to our permanent staff! That takes us from two to three. We passionately believe in small, dedicated teams. You’ll know exactly who is working on your project and that it hasn’t been farmed out to minions. When we need additional expertise we work with a pool of brilliant, trustworthy people who slot seamlessly into our team.

ValuesWe put our money where our mouth is


We’re ideas people. As such we’re forever spotting our own opportunities to reimagine the world. We reinvest income generated from consultancy work into internal product development and securing our intellectual property. It’s a powerful endorsement for the team and process we employ to bring about change through excellence in design.
