Rexam's site visualises the brand concept of 'shaping experience' without being overly flashy or literal.

Dignity's corporate site presents a compelling investment case, telling a story of growth and opportunity for this growing FTSE250 company and the UK leader in funeral-related services. The visual design needed to communicate care, compassion and understanding.
Video is used extensively in this site as it best reflects the people-based approach of the company.

The Investor Relations Society – Europe’s leading professional body for IR practitioners – wanted a website that reflects its new design identity and underlines its status.
The 2009 report: A bold, image-led homepage and lively use of colour make it easy for users to find key information while video interviews with the CEO and Chairman provide an engaging overview of Centrica's performance and future direction. We designed a bespoke interactive charting and data tool that allows users to choose how they want to display data and make meaningful and relevant comparisons. Users can also view financial notes in context rather than having to go to a separate notes page.
Tullow Oil's 2009 online annual report combines design, functionality and depth of content to reflect the company's position as both the leading independent oil company in Africa and a successful FTSE100 company. Strong, high-contrast images and bold colours make the report more visual than in previous years. It also features an in-depth case study on the company's work on the Jubilee field off the coast of Ghana - using colour and graphics to illustrate the process and success of the project. Additionally the report offers new personalisation tools so users can save and print relevant notes, pages, tables and data.
This report affirms Aviva's its new strategic direction, ‘One Aviva’ which the company introduced in the previous year. Group Chief Executive Andrew Moss presents a clear, four-step approach to the difficult situation all industries face, and offers a confident look into the future. These core messages are presented in the introductory animation and act to structure content throughout. The visual branding puts the focus back onto Aviva's primary colour palette of Yellow, Blue and Grey.

The report confidently outlines the Provident's operations and performance, with a Flash movie on the homepage explaining the company's business model and providing links to relevant content. The report design continues the new design direction of the corporate website, with strong use of colour to highlight key content and a clear and uncluttered layout. Improved investor tools allow users to make notes and save pages more effectively while the report also includes a glossary of financial and lending terms.

Rexam PLC are one of the world's top five consumer packaging companies. They are the largest manufacturer of beverage cans in the world and a leading producer of plastic packaging.

We also added new investor tools such as a print basket, Notes and a PDF export functionality. All of Rexam's reports use a light and uplifting visual design, drawing on the typeface Futura Light and a vibrant Blue, Green and Orange from Rexam's corporate colour palette.

C.H.Beck, established in 1763, is one of the great names in German publishing. The Literatur & Science arm of the firm wanted a site relaunch in order to remain competitive in today's rapidly changing publishing industry. We optimised the page grid to accomodate a larger number of titles while providing great clarity and easy browsing. We introduced a serif font back into the Design referring to the historical company Logo. In 2012 a new section "Events" was added.

C.H.Beck's Facebook Initiative required a new brand which was recognisable yet reaching out to the younger audience of law students. The colour Red creates the connection between the traditional publisher and its new brand, while typography and photography push the look & feel into a modern direction. The new logo type uses the clean FF Din, the photography style shows typical scenes from students' lives.
Eye, the international review of graphic design.

With the focus on strong content and a robust content architecure, we developed a playful high quality interface design, fulfilling key marketing requirements, highly useable and ultimately providing a source of inspiration for the design community.
