“U101: Design Thinking is a new 600 hour Open University course taught via distance learning and delivered wholly online to students.
The U101 media pack was designed in response to this, making sure when students first register they will receive a physical package containing a number of elements, all of which should instantly excite and engage them.”

“Nine years ago, Little & Company decided to forgo the paper blizzard of holiday greeting cards and instead send our friends, families and clients a Valentine’s Day mailer. At a time when our lives are growing more complex and we are increasingly inundated by new technology, the Valentine represents a precious, simple gift that can be held in one’s hands – something that makes people stop and smile. This year, we wanted to give our friends a gift that would spark inspiration and re-energize the love for what they do.”

Ministry of Stories follows the model of the 826 centres: a writing centre where kids aged 8-18 can get one-to-one tuition with professional writers and other volunteers; with the centres being housed behind fantastical shop fronts designed to fire the kids’ imaginations (and generate income for the writing centres).
In our case, the shop is Hoxton Street Monster Supplies – Purveyor of Quality Goods for Monsters of Every Kind.
The shop was established in 1818, and ever since then has served the daily needs of London’s extensive monster community.

“This limited-edition series of highly-awarded, high-concept watches was a pet project of CSA Design, with manufacturing help from the Fossil Watch Company. Packaged in custom-tins with 2-color labels that were inexpensive to print but big on impact, with a clean typography treatment spiked with a pop of color and an icon representing each watch’s “theme,” which included Time Flies, Deadline, and 5 O’Clock Shadow.”

“Developing a business card holder…
Creating a cigarette style pack, it’s flip open lid is perfect for offering out a card. With the choice of the CMYK colours to choose from it adds a little sparkle than just passing a card that has been pulled out of a dusty old wallet. My cards make into a cool little box so the client is already engaged in the my ninja packaging skills right from the start.”

“This time a custom House Industries block set design commissioned by friends at Herman Miller Japan. I thought I’d try to roll all of my favorites into this one… Andy Warhol, Maria Montessori and, of course, the Herman Miller trifecta; Nelson, Eames and Girard.

“We are going to tie the knot. In the Greek language, there is an expression that uses the word “hang” in order to say “marry”. So, traditionally, when the father of the bride says “I will hang them”, he means that he will tie the couple with the holly bond of marriage.
This tradition inspired a humorous invitation that includes both a rope and instructions on how to make a slip knot.”
