What we do

We apply skill, craftsmanship and meticulous detail to every project. Working for a varied list of clients we strive to provide business-focussed design solutions that are creative, user friendly and technically accomplished.

Every brief is tackled with a similar approach; first we'll meet with you and listen to your needs to really understand what you want to achieve. We'll then research, design, advise and develop a response that will help you fulfil your business goals. We'll consider your long-term targets and provide a solution that not only meets your current needs but also accounts for the future.

There are 1000s of people out there who offer template-based Wordpress websites. We are not one of them. We don't believe in one-size-fits-all or off-the-shelf solutions and feel every project requires a unique response, tailored to each client's individual needs and requirements. We will also help with the support and maintenance of our final product.

Services we offer

We offer a complimentary range of services that work in harmony, delivering creative, complete solutions for our clients.

Art direction

We'll help to identify the vision you want for your brand. Through discussion, research and exploration we will establish and define a visual foundation for all elements that represent your project.

We will then oversee all design elements within a given project, providing creative direction for all visual collateral, interior, branding, social media, print material - everything that visually represents you.

Identity & brand development

Branding and identity development play a large role in much of the work we produce. A brand is more than just a logo - it may be an individual form, piece of typography, marque or more commonly a combination of various elements. Collectively they provide an identity for your business.

We establish a consistency that runs throughout all material, be it digital or printed collateral, and consider elements such as colour, typography, imagery and tone of language. All of these combine to provide an identity that is easily identifiable in the marketplace.

Website design

Designing and developing websites is the core of our business. We prefer clear and concise communication over complex and convoluted messaging and believe in strong, simple website design and quality construction working in harmony to create a memorable user experience.

In contrast to many other agencies, we place emphasis on creativity, design, content navigation and ease of use. Although we comprise a fairly compact team, the skill set we offer is on a par with larger agencies and we are able to offer a more personal design experience. All work is carried out in-house. This is a rarity for many design agencies, large and small, with most opting to use off-shore alternatives for their web development or take short cuts by using off-the-peg solutions.

Website development

We lovingly craft all our websites by hand, using the latest technology and web standards and use lightweight code for speedier page loads and better indexing by search engines such as Google. All our websites run off our own, completely custom Content Management System (CMS) and E-commerce platform. Every other CMS we have encountered is bloated with unnecessary features you will never need that hinder its efficiency. Ours is clean, easy to understand and simple to use - ask any of our clients. Our E-commerce platform is built around the same .NET framework as our CMS and is again extremely easy to use, fast, safe and secure.

Photography

Photography plays an important role in much of our work, adding narrative to the websites we produce. We specialise in food, interior and lifestyle photography, but we are also interested in architectural photography and are more than happy to work within other sectors.

Our photographic work can be seen across the projects featured on our own website, including our journal. We are also on Instagram.
