Looking back at our strategic branding projects from 2019

2019 was a great year for our studio, we were lucky to work on a huge range of projects with lots of great clients. We worked with clients on a range of projects from branding,  brand strategy, naming, brand identity through to environmental graphics for retail stores to menu designs and document design and style guides. All the work we do ultimately comes back to branding and expressing what sets our clients apart.

Here’s a look at some of the great brands we help create.
