Summer Update

It’s hard to believe we’ve just crossed the mid-point of 2022. As a studio we are so fortunate to have a great network of clients and collaborators keeping our team engaged, solving new and exciting challenges in wayfinding and placemaking. While the future looks bright, we thought it would be good to celebrate some of the recent projects we’ve completed.

This selection of projects focuses on our work in the dynamic world of residential wayfinding. Our team loves these fast-paced, brand-lead wayfinding projects. We get to collaborate with architects and interior designers to really dive into the details of interior finishes, and ultimately design something that is useful but also deeply personal and feels appropriate in someones home. Our project management services really shine in this area. Delivering this level of quality in a sector defined by tight budgets and timelines is an opportunity to demonstrate the tangible value our experience brings.

Many of the projects were worked on, or even completed, during the pandemic. We’re grateful for all the support of our wonderful clients during that time. As the world opens up again, we’re even more excited to share new upcoming projects, especially in the retail and public realm placemaking. Enjoy the selection below and get in touch with your thoughts or questions. 

Deansgate Sq

Modern luxury lifestyle meets old-school signage craft. Our wayfinding design at Deansgate Square uses classic materials like etched brass and hand painted lettering to seamlessly integrate into the busy and diverse community living in Manchester’s tallest residential towers.

Apex Gardens

Our wayfinding design for this urban oasis blends natural materials and forms with contemporary interior design. Apex Gardens included exterior wayfinding to help connect the with the neighbourhood’s plentiful transport connections.


Oxygen is designed to be different. Throughout the great mix of townhouses, luxury apartments, penthouses and lush amenities, our wayfinding guides this Manchester community and reinforces the brand. Elegant organic forms and 5 different oxidized metal finishes make our design stand out.

The Filaments

Drawing on Salford’s industrial heritage, our wayfinding design for The Filaments is a modern interpretation of a factory. Simple enamels signs, a playful sense of scale and a little bit of neon help to reveal the character of this community.

The Gessner

The Gessner is proof of what good collaboration brings. We worked closely with the client’s leadership, brand and interior design teams to bring a residential wayfinding system that looks effortless while navigating a complex building. The humanistic brand language and simple materials coordinate perfectly with the rich interiors and reveals clues about this Tottenham neighbourhood’s history as a pencil factory.


Celebrating its canal-side location, Windlass Apartments bring modern living to a site with a rich heritage and connections to nature. Our team’s focus on practical design found us developing a bespoke faux finish to give the look and feel of Corten steel without all the mess.

Pin Yard

Pin Yard is all about texture. Literally weaving in this Leeds neighbourhood’s history in textile manufacturing, our wayfinding design uses a blend of sustainable timber and recycled textile materials. The highly detailed feature wall in reception demonstrates the value we can add to a project through our wayfinding project management and quality assurance services.

Box Makers Yard

Wayfinding and Placemaking come together in our work at Box Makers Yard. Working with the client’s branding team we created a wayfinding system that elevated the project identify. We then collaborated with a local poet to bring to life a community co-created poem on site. A mixture of bold and subtle typography reveals Bristol’s story in shadows, light projection, and anamorphic graphics throughout the site.
