If you haven’t already got “Identity Designed” by David Airey, you need to work on that. We recently picked it up and it’s a great insight into how different agencies go about producing effective brand and identity systems. #BRIXSealOfApproval

Women’s football rebrand aims to get more girls playing the beautiful game

Women's football has been given a re-brand, and Nomad design studio were commissioned to give it the new look it needed to engage more young girls into the professional game.

Believe in copywriting: Nick Asbury analyses the latest work from Nike and John Lewis & Partners - Creative Review

Interesting piece on the importance of fantastic copywriting for brands today, with a particular insight on the latest Nike campaign. Definitely something that is underestimated in many ways.

Link: https://www.creativereview.co.uk/believe-in-copywriting-nick-asbury-analyses-the-latest-work-from-nike-and-john-lewis-partners/

Both Nike and John Lewis are hitting the headlines with controversial new creative work. But at the eye of these two branding storms, there should be one small area of calm agreement. The writing is brilliant.

This one should get you in the mood for Sunday lunch ...

Here's some of our photography for the Hollow Trees Farm Christmas book, which we redesigned and took bespoke photography for last year. We're really happy with the results!

As Christmas is fast approaching, get in touch if you're interested in seeing how we could get the word out about what your business can offer this Christmas!

PS: Sorry, we know it's a bit early to talk about Christmas, but it's important to get organised!

Pentagram’s Harry Pearce rebrands John Lewis and Waitrose

So it's caused a bit of a stir in the design world, with the inevitable mixed opinions of any re-brand being passed around. But what do you think about the new John Lewis & Waitrose look?

If you haven't seen it, head over to this link to find out more: https://www.designweek.co.uk/issues/3-september-9-september-2018/pentagrams-harry-pearce-rebrands-john-lewis-and-waitrose/

The two high-street retail chains, alongside their parent company John Lewis Partnership, have a new, unified identity, which looks to link up all three brands coherently and emphasise how employees have a stake in the company.

We’ve got some new projects in the works today, this one’s for some people who are very close to us ... but who could it be?

Also, for those of you who think normal pencils are better than mechanical pencils, you’re wrong (respectfully). Get yourself a Rotring 600, and then get back to us about it - these things are so nice to use!

Home - Help Bristol's Homeless

You may be an avid "One Show" watcher, but for those of you who aren't, check out the work that an organisation called "Help Bristol's Homeless" are doing. Jasper and his team have been converting shipping containers into temporary accommodation for homeless people to use while they search for work and housing.

They don't just do that though, they also help them with form filling, emergency care, street outreach and additional support. While we wish that everyone had access to housing today, Jasper is still doing what he can to help those in need.

Check out their website here: https://helpbristolshomeless.co.uk/ to find out more!

We believe that having a home is not an entitlement, it is a RIGHT. Everybody should have the opportunity to live in a place they can call their own.

We highly recommend you check out the rebrand of the "Social Mobility Foundation" by Studio Jones Knowles Ritchie. It's a charity all about making sure that young people with disabilities are able to have opportunities to get the careers that they dream of, and the brand plays on the way that they can climb the ladder of success.

More information about the rebrand here: https://www.designweek.co.uk/issues/16-22-july-2018/social-mobility-foundation-moving-brand-identity-careers-charity/

Golden Ticket and Passport design recently completed for the Museum of East Anglian Life. Both items printed on GF Smith leather embossed and Peregrina Majestic paper for a premium look and feel.

If you're a high school student we're sure you've already heard about this project, or will be hearing about it soon. We'll also be writing a blog post about the process behind this work too - for those that are interested.

As some of you may have seen, a few of our fellow colleagues from The Mix have been to Greece to work alongside other organisations who are helping support refugees.

So we thought we'd post about some fantastic design campaigns aimed to support refugees and asylum seekers when they need it most. One of our favourites includes a simple sticker that was designed to remind people of the contributions refugees have made to all aspects of life.

Check out the article on design week here: https://www.designweek.co.uk/issues/18-24-june-2018/how-design-has-helped-refugees-in-times-of-crisis-discrimination/

Karen, who is part of the team that went to Greece has also been writing about their experiences, so we'd recommend reading that over on The Mix Stowmarket's page!

Designing the Nigeria 2018 World Cup kit

Another England win, and another world cup post coming your way ...

This time, we thought we'd post you to an article about how Nigeria's world cup kit was designed. It's certainly caught peoples attention this year! Take a look at the interview here: https://www.creativereview.co.uk/designing-nigerias-world-cup-kit/

If there was a prize for this year's jazziest World Cup kit, Nigeria would win hands down. The green, black and white design is a far cry from the minimal jerseys worn by the likes of England, France and Brazil and has become a fashion phenomenon: three million were sold online and hundreds queued u...

As England got their World Cup campaign underway last night, we thought we'd get ours underway too (on social media, that is).

If you've been watching the World Cup, you've probably seen the identity basically everywhere. Whatever you think about it, it's always interesting to hear from the designers about the decisions they made throughout the process.

Check out this article here to find out how the process worked: https://www.designweek.co.uk/issues/october-2014/russia-2018-world-cup-identity-references-sputnik-and-russian-icon-art/
