Harrop + Penny
Harrop + Penny is a lifestyle brand that sources carefully crafted products from around Europe and the UK, with a focus on objects that are functional, as well as beautiful.
The project was a redesign of their old website, maintaining the sense of order and space, and as Harrop + Penny currently have no physical shop space, our aim was to make the online shopping experience as elegant as their product range.
Lost Cinemas of Castle Park iPhone App
iPhone App, Prototype & User Research, Website
The Lost Cinemas of Castle Park app was one of the outcomes of a research project, funded by the REACT Hub. Working with Dr Charlotte Crofts of UWE, Bristol; we developed an iPhone app that showcases the rich cinema heritage of central Bristol.
Plug in your headphones and walk through Castle Park in central Bristol to find one of the 13 cinemas that used to stand there. As you walk, you'll hear the interesting tales of the Lost Cinemas, in the locations that the cinemas once stood. Accompanied by the music & cinema adverts of the times, and cinema memories from Bristol residents.
The app is a demonstration of what Dr Crofts is hoping to achieve through her work on City Strata, a platform for making the history of the world's cities come to life using technology.
The project work included developing the concept for the app, graphic & experience design of the app, as well as developing the final app.
Logo, Website & Email
Antlers Gallery is a nomadic gallery, hosting exhibits of emerging artists in unused shop spaces across Bristol. Antlers wanted to break away from the traditional, stuffy atmosphere of fine art galleries – making art accessible by anyone.
The logo includes a simplified stag’s head in the form of the up-turned letter "A", taking inspiration from the ancient origins of the letter.
Without a permanent gallery space, the website became the main place that people would come to interact with Antlers. It was important that people could feel connected to what was going on, so we created an email newsletter as another way that people could show interest, stay up-to-date with the range of projects and exhibits, and extend the brand beyond the website.

Everything Flows is an exhibition of four new moving-image artworks on the theme of sporting excellence, which was held over the Summer of 2012 to coincide with the Olympic Games.
The project was a collaboration with Victoria Forrest, bringing the brand online using the colour-coded sections and divisions that the printed materials used.
Anouk Mercier's artwork depicts ethereal, detached landscapes and portraits using pencil and airbrush, and each piece is incredibly detailed.
The site reflects Anouk's gentle colour palette, framing each image in white-space as they are in when viewed in person.
We attempted to expose the finer details of each piece using a magnifying glass interface that allows people to explore the intricacies of each work, bringing them ever-so-slightly closer to the experience of viewing the work in person.
Tim Lane is a Bristol-based Artist who creates paintings and drawings, taking inspiration from literature, myths and folklore.
Tim wanted to refresh his previous website with a cleaner aesthetic that focussed attention on his new work, so we used a parred-down colour palette, many of the pages being almost completely grayscale, except for accents of bold vermillion drawn from Tim’s hand-painted signature.
