Project

We designed a new brand design and promotional literature for a financial investment product. Thrive is a financial wealth business, aiming to prove that you can be caring when thinking about money. Simpkin Burley was initially asked to create a brochure explaining the offer. The brief developed and we also designed a new brand identity and associated marketing suite.

We focused on simple, personal messages to make potential customers think about why they might want to save. Instead of using the topic of making money, we used the concepts of real people, personal connections, and relationships. We did this to tell a story about how a secure financial future can transform lives.

Project

We created a brand design and naming for Manning Holden, a Derbyshire architectural practice specialising in residential design. The business specialises in sustainable building practices and is family run. We steered the client to a name that included the founder and lead designers’ names. For a client to be working with a director whose name is ‘above the door of the company’ makes them feel like they are talking to a senior architect and that their project is important. It also suggests collaboration and partnership within the practice.

Manning Holden Architects is growing in recognition and have been commissioned to design many residential buildings in their target Derbyshire area. The practice continues to expand both in the scope of their projects and by employing local talent.

We designed a bespoke presentation for Strata Homes. A canvas bespoke presentation box and super-sized book to demonstrate the scale of the project and to showcase the proposals at an appropriate scale. Art directing specially commissioned photography for the project, we were able to incorporate the rich texture and heritage of post-industrial Sheffield into the design to convey a picture of the city quarter’s future potential.

Working alongside an expert team of  masterplanners, architects and landscape designers the proposal analysed the history of Attercliffe, reviewed the City of Sheffield vision for the area, and utilised socio-economic understanding to create a development that would fit seamlessly into the wider area, kick-starting further regeneration.

We created a B2B campaign creative for London City Airport’s terminal for the future. The airport wanted a way of promoting their new retail and leisure space to potential tenants to give a true sense of what to expect. The campaign features contemporary London design because, like the forthcoming terminal, this reflects the essence of the city.

Bold infographics, famous London quotes and a strong sense of storytelling enabled London City Airport Group to convey complex information. This enabled the business to market their offer to potential partners and enhance their brand.

Simpkin Burley designed a visually strong brand for this financial planning business. We used contemporary type combined with a black and white colour palette to demonstrate our clients clarity of message. The bold style of the brand instils a strong sense of quality and trust. The concept of plain-speaking advice is conveyed by a graphic device inspired by a keyboard shortcut.

The identity was applied to an extensive suite of applications. This included stationery, corporate literature, a website, video marketing, office signage and advertising campaigns as well as a monthly lifestyle magazine.

Introduction

Simpkin Burley collaborated with co-working space, Works Social, to hold a new #DesignersClub event for the design community in Nottingham.

Setting the challenge of designing a movie or music poster, local designers and illustrators were invited to submit their entries. The work was celebrated at an evening of fun where like-minded creatives could celebrate the work.

Pitching their pencils, palettes and pantones against each other were a range of local creatives, all with their own unique style and take on the brief. From The Long Good Friday to Pan’s Labyrinth and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, all genres of movie and music posters were given a makeover. Each posters was shown on screen and chatted through during the evening in an encouraging and informal way.
