A selection of highlights from other clients in our portfolio
Wales in 100 Objects is a collection of miniature histories, each arising from a single physical object. The objects range in date from early prehistory to the present. Inside you’ll find, among other things, a Roman sword from the first century BCE, the earliest manuscript of Hen wlad fy nhadau and a Raspberry Pi, the revolutionary computer designed to help children learn coding. Opposite stunning photographs by Rolant Dafis, Andrew Green’s informative texts explain and explore each item. The objects are drawn from every part of Wales, and all are available to the public.
Cymru mewn 100 Gwrthrych, the Welsh language version of the book, won the Welsh-language Creative Non Fiction 2019 Wales Book of the Year Award.
We've designed many books for Gomer, from cookery to poetry, and everything in between!
Client: Biophilic Wales
We recently designed a series of bilingual interpretation panels for Biophilic Wales:
'Biophilic Wales is protecting and promoting our Welsh wildlife. We’re creating areas that are full of native wild plants, which will enhance your well-being too. Enjoy these relaxing areas around the hospital and spend time getting closer to nature amongst the wildflowers.'
We are currently working on a wellbeing book for Biophilic Wales - more news soon!
We developed a new branding for Brecon Cathedral, with a fresh logo and colour palette, to reflect their open, accessible outlook. We worked on a variety of projects, from leaflets to banners – even contactless card readers!
The Very Revd Dr Paul Shackerley, Dean of Brecon Cathedral
New Welsh Review is a wonderful quarterly literary magazine publishing new and established talent - we design a print, app and epub version, and also books for the New Welsh Rarebyte imprint.
Client: Brecon Beacons National Park
We design interpretation, leaflets and newsletters for the National Park, and are currently working on interpretation for circular table tops to tell the story of the people and landscape of the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark. The designs have different themes - people, industry and geology, which has a snakes and ladders style game to travel through time in the Geopark! Here's a taster - a sketch by illustrator Brett Breckon, which he's working on for the industry panel.
Client: Dyfed Archaeological Trust
We designed interpretation panels, booklets and leaflets for the Calch project for the Black Mountain lime quarries. The breaking and burning of limestone and carting the lime away was dangerous and backbreaking work. There is very little visual archive relating to the quarries, so we worked with illustrator Brett Breckon and photographer Dewi Glyn Jones to illustrate the story of the industry and people who worked there, and the unique geology of this dramatic landscape.
A Legacy of Dissent on the Black Mountain was a project about the conscientious objectors in the First World War who built the dam at Llyn y Fan Fach to create a reservoir. They lived and worked on the mountain, leaving a fascinating archive of political, religious, literary and artistic contributions.
We've worked on several interesting projects with Dyfed Archaeological Trust - these two are particularly special, being so close to home.
