Every March (except for two recent exceptions), the music industry descends on Austin, Texas for the SXSW Music Festival. And every year, the British music industry take over a venue as The British Music Embassy and showcase some of the best new music coming out of the UK across 12 shows over 8 days. And we’ve been art directing the British Music Embassy since 2018. That means a new creative approach every year, wrapping buildings, a 100 page guidebook, fly posters, social posts, the lot. Below are a few snapshots from the 2019 event, the virtual 2021 event and some this year’s British Music Embassy.
Why would a design agency employ the services of a design agency? Simple. Because your own work always gets pushed to the bottom of the pile in favour of your clients’ work. So the clever marketing team at Ustwo thought, hey, let’s be the client. And it’s developed into a beautiful, symbiotic relationship, where Ustwo get their design needs delivered quick, smart, and we get to have fun working with a great brand on some cool projects.
Broadhead Accountants aren’t your usual firm of accountants, so they wanted a fresher approach to their visual identity and website and a straight talking tone of voice. The brief was simple. To come up with a website which looked good, got the important information across, while also offering some handy built-in services to make client’s lives easier. So within the site, we also custom-built a company tax deadline checker and an online shop window for company incorporations.
Scoro is a project management tool which does it all, and they wanted a succinct way of getting the whole story across without, well, having to spell it all out. We developed an animation for their home page to tell the story in a simple visual way, and carried this style though the rest of the site and their marketing materials.
Toluna are a client we’ve worked with for over a decade. We’ve been with them as they’ve grown from four small offices to 25 offices across 19 countries with over 1500 employees, and acquired Harris Interactive as part of the group. In that time, we’ve designed sell sheets, events stands and booths, web pages, HTML emails and brochures, corporate gifts and delivered in multiple languages. And as time moves on and needs change, we’ve continued to support Toluna and Harris with corporate videos, product videos, social posts and web animations.
