Inspirational Spaces

Last week I met a potential client to talk about their rebrand. We met at what I thought would be serviced offices at East Midlands Airport. How wrong was I.

As I walked into the reception of the building, I was blown away. It was light, bright and airy and the graphics were brilliant. I was confused. Was I meeting this client at another design agency? No, this was accountancy firm, PKF Cooper Parry.

I was given a brief tour, themed rooms: one with trees and a swing! One with space hoppers and bean bags. Acoustic pods for more intimate meetings. Hot desking. A lawn, and a pub with a pool table.

The atmosphere was great, relaxed but industrious. I was really jealous what an amazing place to work.

After a bit of digging I found out the branding was done by: www.stevenoss.co.uk so credit to him. Great job. And the office was designed by: Paragon Interiors.

I think I told everyone I spoke to that week about this place.

If you get a chance, go and have a look. And with such an inspirational working space open to their clients, you might even change your accountant!

Scottish Win!

We’ve won an award! And it’s one we didn’t have to pay money to enter. Brilliant!

Recently we started working with a film production company, Tinker Taylor, to help them distribute a set of films they had produced for the Scottish Police Federation.

The films aim to make people aware of how challenging the role of a police officer is in Scotland. Leading up the the Scottish referendum it is even more important to try and make sure that police services are not lost in any budget cuts.

Our role was to help Tinker Taylor distribute the films across a series of party conferences.

We did this by creating a set of brand guidelines for the SPF which could be applied across print and web. We then designed press adverts, leaflets and some exhibition stands. One of the stands was a modular stand, which could be used in 4 different formations to fit in the different spaces booked at the conferences…

 

It was important that the stand was eye catching, yet didn’t detract from the main event, the films. The system was one we sourced from Open Exhibitions. A really solid, stand which slotted together really easily.

We then created some pop up stands for the conference fringe events…

 

These stands are fantastic value, again easy to install and very very portable.
