What we do

We’re experts in brand and packaging design, but there’s so much more to our offer. We can take your product from that first big idea all the way through to it landing in your customer’s shopping basket (physical and virtual), managing every stage of the process, if that’s what you need us to do. Or, if you just need a bit of support from one specialism, we can do that too.

The brightest ideas from five teams of experts in one joined-up service, all under one roof

So what makes us different from every other ‘end to end brand and packaging design’ agency? Because all our experts work as one team under one roof. That means that even if you’re not working with all of our five specialisms, the insight and experience of each expert team still shapes what we deliver, and how. 

Our combined offer is far greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s this added energy and innovation that inspires our brand proposition, Brighter together. We shine brighter when we work together and we bring this brightness to every single project we work on.

Because our pack science team are on board right from concept stage, they can advise our design team on the best structure, substrates and finishes to really bring your brand to life. 

Because our design team work directly with our graphics team, they think in 2D and 3D, and know how to prepare their designs perfectly for artwork.

Because our graphics team work directly with our creative team, they know how to work with your brand assets to create consistency, quality and shelf standout across multiple printers, substrates and markets.

Because our legal team work directly with our creative copywriters, they know how important it is to apply the letter of the law without losing the essence of your brand.

And because our digital team work to support our other four teams day in, day out, they know how our clients work and the challenges they face. Then they build clever software to overcome them.

We’re really proud to be able to say that each of our specialisms is part of our family, providing a service that’s unique to us.
