Bobbin Bicycles

Bobbin was founded by husband and wife team Tom and Sian in London in 2007. They have pioneered a new lifestyle approach to cycling. Bobbin products are sold through a growing network of retailers in the UK, Europe and beyond.

The word ‘Bobbin’ is their own expression: meaning to cycle around for fun, to re-capture the feeling of your first bike ride.

AW Projects was commissioned to rebrand Bobbin. The scope of the work was realised from concept through to a diverse range of platforms and applications. Some of which are
shown here.

The work included a range of specially drawn illustrations and graphic motifs to bring to life the Bobbin story and brand in a simple, heartwarming way.

We are also currently working on a dynamic, socially integrated website with Bobbin to be launched in 2016.

Man Overboard Exhibition and Publication Design

UCA (Epsom) BA (Hons) Graphic Design Graduate Show

As Creative Director, I designed and project managed the 2014 Graduate Graphics Show, collaborating with an excellent team of final year students.
Elements included curation of the show, art direction of the branding, design of the exhibition, publication and website.
It opened at UCA Epsom and then traveled to Blackhall Studios in London.

'Man Overboard' took the theme
of being lost at sea. The exhibition
and publication use abstract images
of water combined with graphic saving devices. Designed by students for future students, the book captures the culture, process and working practices of the course. It reveals a ship's log of events that occurred during the students' time of study. The publication works both as a show catalogue and student recruitment "calling card".

Aspects of the book were then translated into the design of the exhibition space, signage and
curation of the show.

The exhibition revealed the process, thinking and thought behind the students' work, and was not simply
a showcase for the finished products.
A reading table encouraged viewers to stop and engage with the students' work. Accompanying films of the students talking about their work,
gave the work context and revealed the process of making.

The publication was featured here: http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/degree-shows-2014

University for the Creative Arts: Thursday Night Lecture Series

Curation and Design of a Thursday night
lecture programme for students at UCA Epsom.

'Unexpected Territories' considered seven contemporary practitioners and how the fluidity of contemporary culture has affected their methods and enabled them to explore or expand into new territories. For example: a trained graphic designer is now working as an artist; a designer using traditional printing methods has opened up new possibilities in the interactive realm.

The aim was to break down preconceived ideas about disciplines and to encourage open-ended results and unexpected domains.

We designed this microsite to advertise, inform and facilitate dialogue.
It included a link to tweet questions prior to the lecture.

RCA Design Products & BASF

Plastics is a project between
BASF and the RCA, Design Products, Platform 12, exploring the potential
of the plastic Ultradur® (Polybutylene terephtalate; PBT).

Students were asked to investigate design-oriented applications for Ultradur® after there visit to BASF Designfabrik in Ludwig-shafen where they learnt about the material and its properties and moulding capabilities.

In collaboration with Helen Eger,
we designed and art directed the photography for the following publication to showcase the
student’s final solutions.

The book took inspiration from
the large plastic bag containing the special plastic granules. The cover is glossy and the image is of the type on the plastic bag, which also became the title of publication.

The products were shot against a black background and the intro pages contain images of playful pattern making with the granules. We wanted the book to feel like the products were inside the bag as if you were opening it up.

Culloden Battlefield & Memorial Centre

In collaboration with exhibition design company Ralph Appelbaum Associates. We created the logo concept and design that won the pitch.

Culloden is a National Trust for Scotland battlefield and visitor centre where the Jacobites fought the English. The logo is derivative of the two battle lines the two sides stood on before
the fight. The colours were matched
to remnants of the uniform, red for English and blue for the Jacobites.

The brief was to design a simple logo which developed out of a mutual
regard for the font 'Avenir'. It was adapted to be bespoke, by rounding
off the tops of some of the the letters.

The Readers Before Us

Publication and Book launch.
Royal College of Art 2002

In collaboration with Sophie Beard we created this publication which is a list
of found ephemera between the pages of books inside the Royal College
of Art Library.

We started at the first book on the
first book shelf, dewey decimal system number 001 POP and flicked through every book up to book number 779.0924 NAC. Each item of ephemera found was catalogued by the book’s DDS number, title, author, publication details and page number.

During our search we discovered photographs, bus tickets, private letters, receipts, post it notes, and doodles (see examples to the right
of the library books open with the
item found).

Each item discovered was recorded with a short descriptive text.

A poster wraps each book featuring
the entire collection of the found items (sixth image down). Each book had a sticker on the spine with a hand stamped number.

Every item of found ephemera was punched with a hole serving visually
as a branding mark, evidence that it is part of this project and to be displayed on a large spike. The items were placed with the last item found at the bottom (see the first image).

All 300 books were displayed at the book launch on shelves next to the spike. A perspective buyer would purchase a book in numeric order.
For example the tenth person that would come along received book number ten and the tenth item that
was listed in the book from the spike. They then signed the back of a poster on a light box with the edition
number that they purchased.
We sold 256 books and gained an excellent collection of signatures.

Book No.01 went back into the library with the signed poster. It is hoped that this copy, available on open shelf general access will continue to collect its own set of post-its and book marks for a future generation of readers
after us.

Inspired by an information graphic
on my mother's sewing machine.
I created this studio moving card and played with it to create an upside
down rainbow.

Studio Christmas card 2010 was
created using a drawing of a Father Christmas I found in Egypt outside
a hotel. During the process it was realised that it would make a great pencil top.
