New branding for the CDR Tod Dockstader Remix Project. More soon come…
How can you help people save money on their everyday bills? Affinity Sutton commissioned us to produce a short series of films to tackle such issues.
The challenge of the brief was to highlight how Affinity Sutton residents could best utilise their appliances such as Combi Boilers and Electric Heaters to how to avoid Damp and Condensation – all in under two minutes. We decided to take a humorous approach with first person point of view and the voice over talents of Paul Lyttle.
To mark the release of Love She Wants, Dazed Digital sat down with Kai Gama and DSV of The Insomniax, to find out the story behind the EP, and how they’ve put up with each other for, well, their whole lives really. Peep the full interview here.
We provided the artwork to help get folks tuned up for the weekend. The INX Maintenance Mix. Word.
London Metropolitan University graduate Yinka Ilori hales from North London but his influences are both parochial and global; from herringbone tweeds to Dutch wax.
A product designer with the future in mind, Yinka upcycles and reworks old, unloved furniture to produce brand new interpretations.
We are developing the Yinka Ilori brand under the protective watch of LBB Talent. There’s much more to come from us and this talented starlet in the near future.
SE Assist is a joint initiative between Legal & General, CAF and NESTA that will provide business support to Social Entrepreneurs as well as start-up capital for businesses on the programme.
As we know, setting up a new venture is most certainly the start of an exciting journey with its ups and downs. Inspired by signposts and road signage, we created a brand identity that indicates to the sense of direction that SE Assist aims to provide new businesses.
The final pared down design represents the no nonsense and simple business advice given by the SE Assist team. We love a bit of process, so below are two other versions of the SE Assist logo and their corresponding mood boards.
Every start–up needs a push in the right direction to help navigate what can be some very choppy waters.
Bearing that truth in mind, this concept is based around the idea of Se-Assist being the wind in the sails of new-business, providing just the right amount of wind, in just the right direction.
For any new business there are a few considerations such as how to get on that first step/rung of the ladder and what all aspiring entrepreneurs have; visions of growth to becoming a successful organisation.
Elevation & Shelter is an alternative visualisation of growth with a graphic interpretation of a propelling ramp taking business on an upward trajectory, while also providing the necessary shelter, support and guidance for future social entrepreneurs.
The art of winning isn’t a board game or a game show. It’s not reality TV. It’s something you have to make a reality.

If you’ve been to Dalston and never been to Cafe Bliss, then you’ve never really been to Dalston. As part of the Adopt A Shop initiative in conjunction with the Mayor of London and Hackney Council, we were asked to refresh and rebrand the café. Thirty years in the Cafe industry means Dalstonite Erkan (above) knows how to make an English breakfast or two.
We developed branding that reflected the cafe’s long-standing heritage and place in the community. Hand painted gold signage on an olive green base, coupled with a coffee cup logo where the ‘C’ and ‘B’ subtly put the bliss back into Café Bliss.
The rebrand and general overhaul of Let’s Be Brief has begun. More info coming soon…

“In terms of our digital marketing efforts, Green Stories is quite positively the most successful and engaging campaign we’ve done with our residents to date. The videos were spot on and enabled us to created high quality, dynamic content for our website which helped to increase traffic by 16%.” Emily Day, Digital Marketing Executive - Affinity Sutton
Affinity Sutton are a national housing association. Green Stories is an innovative and creative approach to engaging its residents with regards to green issues.
Our involvement has been to create an integrated marketing campaign, (print / digital / film / experiential) to encourage ‘early green adopters’ to share their Green Stories.
Working with Rob (Brighton) / Jeannie and Eddie (East Grinstead) / Phil (Manchester) / Brian, Steph and Tony (Middlesbrough) / Christine, Ian and Tom (Stoke), to create five short films that told their individual stories, with the aim of inspiring other residents to make positive eco choices.
Working with such lovely people was a real pleasure, and it was a joy to bring their larger than life personalities to the ‘big screen’.
