Argos Simple Value
Reed Words
Mike Reed:

Argos is a British retail institution. So updating their brand is a big deal. As well as developing the new Argos voice, alongside The Partners, Reed Words have written packaging copy for four own-label ranges. Simple Value is just that: the simplest products, at great value. Our copy style celebrates the simplicity, and adds a twist. And once we’d written about 50 pack lines, the Argos team have been able to follow our guidelines and complete the full range of around 140.

Igloo
Interbrand
Mike Reed:

What I love most about this delightful identity is that Interbrand embraced one of the oldest visual clichés ever – a double-O turned into eyes – and made it fresh. Bold, relevant, revelling in both the visual and the verbal: this is how branding should be.

The New Theatre
Interbrand
Mike Reed:

A terrifically simple typographic mark for one of Sydney’s oldest and proudest theatres. The logo combines the three initials – TNT – into a form that’s not just satisfying in itself, but also creates a platform for everything else. You can’t ask for more, really.
