    Publications with Impact

    Thursday, May 03, 2012

    Having originated the Society brand identity in 2009 and subsequently their inaugural corporate literature and website homepage, we were called in once again when the socially-aware recruitment firm required tailored publications for its growing reach and specialist services.

    As per their tagline, 'make an impact', their two new corporate booklets had to be on-brand, striking and impactful. Providing us with the straight copy, Society allow us creative license to interpret their content in layout, visuals and image-sourcing to best convey their message and ethos.

    We're delighted to report that Society are thrilled with their new booklets – as are we!

    It's always exciting to work with a brand that 'thinks outside the box', and we're sure the resulting materials will continue to set Society apart as a leader in the world of recruitment and executive search.

    Top Flight Firm Targets Seats of Learning

    Perrett Laver has one of the largest Higher Education executive search practices in the world, with a vision of influencing society through a new breed of a leaders for a changing world.

    Having worked with the directors and consultants on previous corporate literature, as well as the redesign and reposition of their website, we were appointed once again to produce materials for their Global Chairs Practice.

    Perrett Laver's Global Chairs Practice

    The new literature, aimed at identifying, engaging and securing outstanding academic leaders for the world's top universities, had to feel truly global, set the right tone, and feel every bit as sharp as the the company itself. Taking its overall look and feel from the website, we sourced supporting images and devised a structure to best present the information.

    Having met with resounding approval, printed copies of the book were whisked off to Asia where the Global Chairs Practice convened with the heads of some of the region's top universities. Feedback was prompt upon their return and we're delighted to report that the document proved to be a "roaring success" among its learned readers.

    Drawing from inspiration

    Monday, January 18, 2010

    Whilst clearing out the office art drawers I came across some drawings I did some years back. Drawing was my creative outlet before I picked up a camera and the technology took hold.  I embraced its speed of capture; pencils and pens were sidelined.

    Although still pleased with these drawings, I'm excited and raring to set to work in a more illustrative way: more interpretive, with a freer, simpler feel. 

    Inspired, and with a timely set of new pencils and charcoals (a super Christmas present) and a copy of "Sketchbooks: The hidden art of designers, illustrators & creatives" at hand, 2010 is a year when I go back to basics and connect with raw materials again.


    On Approaching Poaching

    Sunday, November 22, 2009
    The perfect start to any Sunday at the Bungalow: Eggs Royale - the classic Benedict, replacing the bacon with smoked salmon. We had some spinach on there too for good measure... and it tasted as good as it looks!

    Eggs Arlington at the Bungalow

    The dish is also known as Eggs Arlington, a name coined by Le Caprice in London's Arlington Street; see their recipe here.

    A.A. Gill also refers to the dish by this name in his mouthwatering read "Breakfast at The Wolseley" in which you can learn all about the origins of this gourmet breakfast classic - including why there should always be two eggs per serving: Benedict and Beatrice! A great book, well worth reading!
