Lawrence & Wightman now live.

TAC recently worked with Lawrence & Wightman, a chartered surveying partnership based in Birmingham, to launch their new site.

We have been working with Lawrence & Wightman since 2013 and were asked earlier this year to refresh their online presence. Initially looking at their colour palette, we were set the task of creating a more engaging user experience for potential clients. In addition to this, one of the main objectives was to create a seamless CMS system allowing the partnership to update the site easily in-house.

Northumberland National Park website launched.

Earlier this year, TAC began working alongside Northumberland National Park to design and develop them a new online presence. Our objective was to create a website which excites and inspires people to explore the park and everything it has to offer. We are now happy to announce the results of our work are live.

The park is home to England’s cleanest rivers, darkest skies and Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With this in mind, TAC also assisted with a promotional campaign and photography direction to work alongside the site.

The campaign looked to add value to the park by allowing people to find their own personal use for it, their reason for going there exciting their imagination. ‘Get Stuck In’ looked to encourage engagement with visitors, the local community and benefit Northumberland businesses.

Rebrand for Three Motion.

Over the course of the past few weeks, TAC has been working to create a new brand identity for Three Motion, a leading video production agency based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Given the ever changing nature of the digital industry, it was important to position the brand as a forward thinking, people centred technology company.

The marque produced illustrates the brand’s progressive attitude to innovation while also touching on its digital influence through referencing a play icon, sound waves and a perspective composition.

In addition to the marque and logotype, TAC also delivered collateral and provided assistance on application across other online and printed materials.

Upon completion, Creative Director Neil Wood-Mitchell said:

“Three Motion commissioned TAC Design to develop our branding and identity. Through a series of creative meetings, concept presentations and structured feedback, the team delivered a design which was both excellent and exceeded expectation.”

Brand launch: Scandibørn.

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.

The concept behind Scandibørn is to bring the very best in Scandinavian inspired children’s interiors, clothing and accessories from across the globe, distributing products all over the world. Their company ethos focusses on working with independent businesses, and stocking eco-friendly products.Client testimonial.

The client said:

“We gave James & TAC Design a fairly broad brief for our branding – we wanted our Logo and typography to be instantly recognisable as Scandi, yet applicable to a children’s brand. As always with these things we had ideas about what we thought we wanted and when James and the team returned with the options they made us realised what we really wanted. Not only did they come up with an amazing Logo (its a bird and an ‘S’ all in one) they also created us an awesome brand – clean lines, unmistakably Scandinavian and just well, super cool.

We’ve had numerous suppliers comment on how established our brand looks for such a young company and this is in no small part down to James & the team.

So Thank you for giving us the very important building blocks to start (hopefully) a very successful and long lasting company!”

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.

We’ve launched a new website for Wild Life Festival 2016.

Wild Life takes place at Brighton City Airport in June and last year, its first year, was voted best new festival at the 2015 UK Festival Awards.

Working with Studio Moross, who provided art direction and some smart illustration, we designed and built a website which, as you can see, is pretty lively.

Alpha Male Grooming.

Alpha Male Grooming is one of Newcastle’s best-known and most popular men’s salons. We’ve worked with Lee and his team for well over a year now, refining the Alpha Male brand and simplifying the way the salon communicates with its customers.

To reflect some exciting new developments at Alpha Male we’ve been working on their website recently. We think it’s looking pretty smart and was well worth sharing.
