TAC launches Data Architects rebrand.

TAC has recently completed a rebrand for Newcastle-based IT consultants and software developers, Data Architects.

Data Architects work across a range of sectors, including government, healthcare and environment and specialise in building bespoke applications and complex databases. Their clients include Defra, The Zoological Society of London and Edge Hill University.

Over the past 12 months we have worked closely with Data Architects to roll out their new brand across the entire business, delivering a consistent look and tone of voice across all mediums.

We’ll publish an in-depth case study on our work with Data Architects on the website soon.

Scandibørn: A children’s clothing & accessories startup.

Earlier this year we were approached by Scandibørn to develop an identity and supporting material for their start up business.

Scandibørn was born from Grace and James’ passion for Scandinavian inspired design; a movement we admire due to it’s focus on simplicity, minimalism and functionality.

Scandinavian design has long been an inspiration to us, from the Architecture and design of Alvar Aalto, product designers Bang and Olfsen, to the fashion house Acne studios. It is for these reasons that we we jumped at the chance to get involved in such a project.

Wylam Brewery: Relaunching the brand.

Late last year we joined up with Wylam Brewery, one of the most well known names in the real ale game, to develop a new brand identity and online presence. The brief we were given was based around supporting their ambitious expansion from their current home in Heddon-on-the-Wall, to the Palace of Arts in Newcastle’s Exhibition Park.

We worked in close collaboration with Wylam to rebrand all areas of the business. Particular importance was placed on conveying the brand’s key values of Quality and Heritage.
