Our experience with digital media has underlined the continuing value and importance of physical products and printed materials. Printed media still have a huge role to play in communicating with people, either as physical counterparts to digital media, or as standalone artefacts.

From communication tools like booklets and brochures to specialised one-of-a-kind products intended to have a lifespan of decades instead of weeks or years. Over the years we have found that there is a real craft to printing and have developed invaluable relationships with key suppliers capable of delivering the very best printed materials.

The opportunities and capabilities of digital technologies allow us step outside traditional print design processes and offer on-demand printing from a number of specialised suppliers. We have the expertise to design and realise processes with both digital and printed components, vertically integrated to provide benefits of physical and digital media combined.


Client: The Fairfield Association

What we did: Exhibition Design

We were approached by the Fairfield Association to assist with the design of a Heritage Lottery Funded exhibition to celebrate the Flora project. We worked alongside the steering group to design the exhibition for a retail unit in the City of Lancaster. We produced 3D designs of the space for discussion with the group and further ideation following the initial concept.

The exhibition was well received by the general public and a great success for the Fairfield Association.
