We’ve just picked up our copy of Real Homes which Broadbase have designed for publishers Thames and Hudson. It features beautiful photographs by Solvi dos Santos, who’s spent a lifetime shooting interiors and this is a collection of very personal, creative and eclectic homes. 352 inspirational pages are divided into Entrance, Living, Dining, Kitchen, Outdoor, Open Plan, Work, Stairs, Bedroom and Bathroom...[read more]
Broadbase were asked to help with some in-store marketing for Holt’s Lapidary and given a whole batch of gemstone images to play with. We came up with this lovely peacock poster design to show off their jewel expertise. Helped by illustrator and design intern Emma Fisher we explored lots of peacock shapes before settling on this little beauty. We also tweaked their branding, dropping colour behind the logo which was clear diamonds – and is now much more distinctive in blues and purples.
There’s a school fete or village fayre near you this weekend and we’ve been helping Tala fill the shelves with goodies to make your homemade jams and chutneys stand out from the crowd. These printed preserve lids are sold as jars or in packs of screw top lids to fit standard 1lb and 2lb jam jars. The three designs complement the retro ranges we’ve been developing.
Finally on the shelves are our designs for Hope and Greenwood’s range of sharing bags and boxes. We started with the boxes and then adapted the designs to print onto doypacks which are a whole new ball game. The results work well with nice textural finishes between opaque matt and clear frosted stripes. We even designed the sweet wrappers.[read more]
Last week Tala was at Exclusively Housewares showing off our new point of sale merchandising design to the buyers. From all accounts it’s gone down a storm with displays for the cook’s measure, cake decorating equipment and a giant tiered cake stand for all things baking related. We purposefully used a bold red and cream which complements but doesn’t clash with the two different Tala fifties and sixties packaging styles. In addition there’s a range of information leaflets that reinforce the Tala brand heritage and a universal leaflet stand.[read more]
Another June another Treasure exhibition at Somerset House with graphics by Broadbase. This year we chose a vivid Emerald green that looked fabulous across logo, signage and brochure. The jewellery fans flocked to last night’s opening party and we breathed another huge sigh of relief. There’s now 3 days to get your fix on all all things sparkly. Warning! Jewellery is seriously addictive. www.treasureuk.com
