We had a chance to travel across the ocean to build this website for Polaroid, supporting sales of the new digital photo and video product range on the American market. The website is designed and built entirely by us and features an easy to use administration panel.

The most famous oyster bar in london
A gentle evolution approach was taken rather than a complete re-brand with careful consideration to the heritage that comes with Bentley's. Expanding the offering to Bentley's Sea Grill at Harrods and integrating the identity within a family suite under the Richard Corrigan umbrella was also a key factor.
Rolled out to a new content managed animated website, mobile site, menu suite and full on-going marketing support collateral. They wanted to create something unique.

Day of the dead urban rawness.
Skeleton graffiti-clad walls, dark, underground, low-slung ceilings drowning in latino beats and dripping in tequila, reaching out to the shoreditch kids. Get the picture, cabron?
We had great fun creating the branding, identity, illustration work, window graphics, wall art and marketing support collateral for this venture.

Branding and digital support for Richard Corrigan.
Tasked with rebranding the man himself with an aim to raise and support his profile as he tackles the US TV scene. He's an opinionated man with strong clear views on what's right and wrong with the food industry. We set about trying to reflect this in his supporting imagery and brand identity and tone of voice.
Inkeeping with a family suite encapsulating his restaurant brands was a key aspect to establishing his identity. A fast paced, dynamic, hustling and bustling new website which reflected his personality was one of the first deliverables...more to come!

Established in 1975 and in need of a new lease of life.

Authentic Mexican grub and a tequila list to die for. Literally.
We created an identity to
sit in unison with it's environment but also extend the cantina experience beyond this. A combination of east london urban rawness and authentic mexican rustic charm was born.

Chartered surveyors offering unique specialisms.

Market leading market researchers.
When this bubbly bunch approached us to look at their branding we knew they'd be up for taking things to a different plane. In a market drowning in run of the mill branding, the Critical guys understood the power of 'difference' in aiding cut through and distinction from the crowd.
They allowed us to create an identity and positioning that employed a playful tongue-in-cheek poke of fun towards their processes. A carefully crafted tone of voice, supported by a cheeky illustrative style forms the platform for this successful and time defying look and feel.
