We have been working on a series of book covers for the publishers SCM Press. The books, which are going to be released over the next few months, have been for a range of authors and we have been enjoying creatively interpreting the books subject matter into concepts for the covers. The first four of the books are Post-Christendom – Church and Mission in a Strange New World (a second edition of a book originally published in the US), Seeking the God Beyond, Buying God – Church, Consumerism and Theology and Theology for Changing Times. You can buy the books by going to the website of SCM Press.

We have recently developed and built a new website for the Body Mind Spirit Partnership. The aim of the partnership is to link community groups focused on support for older people across Birmingham and the surrounding area. We created the website to promote the partner organisations and help their users access their services. The responsively designed website gives profiles to each partner organisation where they can log-in and update their own details, including an events and activities diary.

We’ve been working with the Church of England on 2018’s campaign for Lent, Live Lent: Let Your Light Shine. Having designed the 116 page full colour book, course notes and social media graphics, the Church of England used the materials to create an app for the project. You can get the app on Apple Store and Google Play as well as finding more information on the website https://www.churchofengland.org/lent.
The Church of England have just put live their new website (https://www.churchofengland.org) and we’re really pleased to have several of the projects we’ve been working with them on feature. As well as the Advent and Christmas campaign #Godwithus, there is another new projects we’ve been working on, the Pilgrim Way, along with the websites we developed for Christenings, Weddings and Funerals.
There’s some information on what the #GodWithUs project is about here, and a video about it too. Pilgrim Way is part of the Pilgrim project – we have designed a book for it which is about to be published.
We are very pleased to be involved in #GodWithUs, the Church of England’s major new digital and print campaign for Christmas, which has just been launched. As well as creating a 36 page full-colour booklet for the project we have been busy creating graphics for print and new media to help publicise the campaign.

We were pleased to help design some promotional material for the University of Warwick Chaplaincy to hand out to new students across the university this past month. We designed a set of button badges which featured a series of well known sayings from different faiths mounted on a card which introduces the work of the Chaplaincy. We also designed some large format posters to promote the various events at the Chaplaincy welcoming people to Warwick University.
We have recently designed a new identity for St Peter’s Church in Coventry. The church was looking for a new identity that would show a community focused church with life and creativity at it’s heart. We created several versions of the identity so that it could be used flexibly across the many projects the church and church centre are involved in. We are looking forward to working with them more in the future.
Update: St Peter’s have recently created signage using the new identity. Very much like the results!
We have been working closely with the Student Christian Movement to create a set of resources for UK university students, including this new website for students. The latest project has just been launched, the Christian Student Guide, an information site full of articles in a lifestyle-blog style. Articles can be found via dynamic searches or by scrolling through the content, designed in a responsive tablet and mobile friendly format. The simple clean layout is matched with an easy to navigate structure. The Student Christian Movement are looking at a busy summer and start of the new academic year – we really enjoyed working on the project.

We’ve just finished designing branding for a newly established company, PON Heating Solutions, who are based in Birmingham. The company was looking for a bold, punchy identity with a modern feel. We used a modern heavy set typeface alongside a simple but refined icon to give a logo with high impact and a clean clear footprint so it can be easily used – whether that be uniforms, vehicle wraps, business cards or publicity.
We are at the early stages of building the company’s brand and working on their on-line and off line publicity but are excited by coming alongside the company as it expands it’s work across the Midlands.
We love building brands for organisations – see more of our branding work here.
Last month, we launched the new website for Valley House, a West Midlands based charity which offers supported housing, youth, nursery and support services. The responsive content-managed website showcases the services offered by the organisation and uses the colour coding for each area of expertise which we established when we created their brand identity earlier in the year.
The website has become the centre piece for their new brand, to convey their aims and mission for this new stage in the organisation’s life, a charity which has been running since 1977. We have really enjoyed working with them as a new client and look forward to our ongoing work with them.

We have recently launched the website for Woodbrooke.
Created to promote Woodbrooke’s conference facilities, accommodation and learning programmes – the site is fully responsive for using across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The site features facilities for on-line payment for the numerous courses held at Woodbrooke as well as resource libraries and accommodation searches.
Having worked on the branding identity, we created a seamless experience between printed and on-line material. The site has been well received and we look forward to see how it develops over the coming years.
