The imagination and variety of the Christmas shop window displays has always been a wonderful outlet for pure creativity in the retail world. And 2013 is no exception.
John Lewis and Peter Jones worked for a year to create and craft a range of winter animals from their products to create this amazing display. It’s a brilliant pairing of winter fun and showcasing the shops products. The animals tie in with their recent (and quite lovely) animated TV spot to create a playful but seamless visual for their Christmas activities.
The cutlery bird is a personal favourite here – it’s a work of art!
The sofa bear and coffee maker penguins are also ingenious. If you happen to be in the Oxford Street area we highly recommend taking a look!
We are proud to say we were approached by Packard Bell to creatively lead the look and feel for their new advertising campaign for a range of two new laptops. We got to not only create the overall design direction but also create all the English language assets for this multinational campaign. This was our first project with the Acer owned company and we loved every minute of it.
Overall we designed a series of 18 banner ads, 16 magazine adverts and 8 large format posters for the campaign all of which are to be localised and rolled out worldwide. Here are just a few:
Had a great time the other night speaking on a panel of experts as part of Wired Sussex Open Studios and Brighton Digital Festival.

That’s the short version of our charity skydive this year. It was, terrifying. Horribly terrifying.

There are a few things to remember when choosing images for your website or next blog post. Here are some of the basics that everyone needs to take into account.
Here are our top 5 tips for choosing the best images:
1: Choose the image based on the context.
Are you guilty of using an image just because you think you should have one? Are there images on your site of generic business people shaking hands dotted about? Perhaps they suit the content if they are on an article about how to close a business deal or working together, but maybe there is a better image you can use out there?
The simplest ideas are sometimes the best. Love these cookie cutters from Fab.com
A while back a group of design companies in Ireland worked together to produce a series of light-hearted posters to illustrate the funniest comments they had ever received from clients. Proceeds from their exhibition and poster sales went to support Temple Street Children’s Hospital. It would be great to see a series of counter-posters illustrating the funniest things clients have heard from their designers as well! One for next year maybe.
