Walworth Garden
Studio Sutherland
Alex Swatridge:

A community space in an urban environment. Studio Sutherland wanted to reflect the ideas of growth, support & building through the branding. They achieved this through graphic tessellating shapes which can used as building blocks. They also represent the diverse range of activities going on within the space, from learning to therapy. The identity is based on nine leaf ‘venations’ – the intrinsic structures within every plant leaf. Even the identity itself becomes a vehicle for teaching.

Video Games
Supple Studio
Alex Swatridge:

For the inner child in all of us, Supple Studio and Bitmap Books have brought to life classic British Video Games for Royal Mail across stamps and products. There are lots of lovely details and hidden gems including Geoff Hurst’s 66 world cup goal and UV messages from the original gameplay. I was a pretty big Lemmings fan myself. As they said themselves ‘a complete dream job’.

Votes for Women
Supple Studio
Alex Swatridge:

It’s not always easy, or appropriate, to have an idea on a stamp but here the idea is so apt and thoughtfully executed, that the caption becomes integral to the image. Simple, effective, resulting in a very striking set of stamps.

GREK tea
Design by Interabang
Alex Swatridge:

GREK are a new range of high quality herbal teas from Greece. Interabang have created a brand that steers clear of Greek clichés and have instead taken inspiration from the Xysta tiles of Pyrgi, where the founder took childhood trips. The result is powerful, unique and memorable. Beautiful details include the short stories describing each flavour, with charming illustrations & words by Claire Curtis and Scott Perry.

Me We
Design by Design Bridge in collaboration with The Counter Press
Alex Swatridge:

A collaborative solution for a collaborative problem. Design Bridge asked The Counter Press to work with them on a book for staff, Me/We explains what they stand for from both agency and individual point of view: read from one end gives the ‘Me’ story, while flipping the book over and reading from the other side gives the ‘We’ story.

#missingtype
Campaign by NHS Blood and Transplant
Alex Swatridge:

This is the second time this campaign has been deployed but this time it’s on a global scale. Last year the campaign attracted more than 30,000 people to donate blood, watch this space…

Hepworth Wakefield x Alex Sickling
T shirt design
Alex Swatridge:

A charming collaboration between Hepworth Wakefield and Alex Sickling, where Alex has faithfully captured the simplicity and beauty of Barbara’s work in a modern way.
