Jacqueline Poncelet is an internationally-recognised artist with a wide-ranging practice that includes ceramics, sculpture and large scale public art projects. We designed a flexible portfolio site for Jacqueline that archives the many projects she has made over the last 40 years.
Blackcurrent is an independent creative practice. Working at the intersection of creative and strategy, Blackcurrent crafts compelling stories that bring organisations and people closer together.
Diversity is key to how Blackcurrent operate, enabling the works they create to distinctly shape brands and the cultures they live in. We approached the redesign of Blackcurrent’s website with an emphasis on on using imagery to communicate the range of projects that they undertake. The new website also includes increased space for writing that explores the practice’s approach to work in more detail.
For the Time Being was an experimental programme of photo-performance, conceived as a response to the everyday presence of social media.
Through a series of on and offline events and performances at the Photographers’ Gallery, London, the project invited 5 international contemporary artists Agil Abdullayev, Feng Mengbo, Max Grau and Tamara Kametani and artist collective Agorama to reflect on the role of image sharing networks in their personal lives.
We created a flexible identity for the project, referencing the visual language of stickers and animations associated with social media. The events were supported by a series of texts published on a website that also acts as an archive of the project.
Dunhill and O’Brien is a collaborative practice spanning performance, site specific sculpture, installations and participation having shown in spaces internationally and in the UK. Their work often considers the mythology and symbology of rocks as sites for appreciation and significance. The website acts as a support and archive to the outcomes of their practice.
‘A G-Wagon, a Viking, frost bitten GPS, an elf and a director who is lost in sub-zero temperatures. Navigating through simulation, cinema and death, FOG WORLD fails to become the film it was intended to be, instead chasing its own exhaust fumes, circumnavigating expectations derived from Hollywood, the tourist gaze and simulated reality’.
Accelerating Towards a Red Light was an exhibition of new video works by artist Ruaidhri Ryan that took place at CBS Gallery, Liverpool in 2018. We designed the
graphics for the exhibition as well as ‘Fog World’, the central film. Described as ‘a car crash of a road movie. A road film with no direction’, Fog World features and is set in a version of Iceland that is both real and simulated. Reflecting its pre-occupation with myth, history and the imaginary, we drew a special version of the typeface Albertus for the film’s titles to give the lettering a more rune-like emphasis.
There is nothing like seeing them in person. The Fountains of Bellagio were destined to romance your senses. Take in a spectacular show of thoughtfully interwoven water, music and light designed to mesmerize its admirers. It is the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived and it’s absolutely free for any visitor to enjoy.
Billie Muraben is a freelance Arts and Culture for magazines and websites such as It’s Nice That, AIGA and AnOthermag.
We worked with Billie to develop a website that would reflect the personality of her writing by creating an adaptable, varied and fun reading experience. Alternating background colours and sliding type scales allow the user to customise each article as they read it.
Daniel Thomas Smith is a London-based fashion photographer. Working together with Daniel, we developed a simple, yet flexible portfolio website, which allows him to have complete control over the position, scale and order of each image.
Jones of Brockley is a family-run deli located in South London, stocking a broad range of locally sourced products. Research into photographic archives of the area around the shop directly informed the typography and colour palette of our visual identity.
Inspired by a found drawing celebrating the 1907 opening of St. Hilda’s Church in nearby Crofton Park, we worked with Kirsten Houser to produce an illustrated postcard to announce the launch of the shop in 2015.
