From the archive
In late 2015 Bangor Museum and Art Gallery relocated to the site of the former Bangor Town Hall originally the Bishops Palace. Commissioned to consult on a name for the new building we set to work, with the usage of the building as a starting point - the brand had to represent the primary dual uses of the building as a Museum and Gallery.
The museum recants stories of the past and the gallery displays current work - Stori and Oriel were combined to form the new word STORIEL.
We took the varied shapes of the spaces to create a character identity for the building - the colour palette was developed form source materials relating to the building's original purpose.
Life Celtic Rainforest Project Branding
Snowdonia National Park
Commissioned by Snowdonia National Park to create a unique brand for the LIFE Celtic Rainforests project - we took the native sessile oak leaf and stylised it in several different ways before finalising the design and treating it with a colour palette derived from native woodland fauna. The customised typeface further enhancing the Celtic element without being too overt with symbolism.
The Bear Necessities Co.

An absolute pleasure to produce this playful little branding.

Zip World Website
2018 Major Site Design Upgrade
In mid to late 2018 we designed the interfaces for a major sitewaide upgrade for Zip World which significantly improved the customer experience through the booking flow and visual depiction of the adventures. At the same time we improved the visual representation of the restrictions information, cross sell modals and intra-siteand intra-adventure sales information.
In addition to the graphic development we had significant input into the UX/UI and customer booking portal graphic design in order to guide the user seamlessly through the booking process - this drastically reduced caller numbers to the booking centre and freed up staff time.
