The NHS is a Government-funded medical and health care service that everyone living in the UK can access cost-free. We were asked by the North East Yorkshire Primary Care Transformation team to create an animation that will explain the role of Social Prescribers within the NHS to the general public. The animation had to be accessible, inclusive and informative.

This brand video communicates the passion and dedication of CCDC's team, whose work in crystallographic data has contributed to important scientific breakthroughs such as the development of new medicines.

An exciting project to create a brand for this new restaurant and bar in Notting Hill, capturing the essence of a destination venue, which combines retro themes with the chic and metropolitan vibes of this iconic area in London.

NACCC always put the welfare of the children at the forefront of their work. We created lovable and relatable animal characters in a storybook format to help communicate the role of contact centres to children whose parents are separating.

CDA Kitchens produce high-end kitchen appliances for an aspirational market. They came to us asking for help with a kitchen retail brochure refresh as part of their ongoing marketing retainer. We produced new versions of the brochure each year.

Spurgeons are a charity organisation that offer support to children and families across the UK who have been affected by domestic abuse or imprisonment, and are struggling to cope.

NACCC (the National Association of Child Contact Centres) is a charity that works hard to provide a national network of contact centres for families going through divorce and separation.

Evil Scarecrow’s live show has been captivating and surprising audiences for many years.
