Happy 2020! Here’s a work and studio month-by-month review of what we got up to in 2019.
We started the year by jumping straight into number of web design and development projects such as westonfarm.co.uk, wdetrust.co.uk, and packgenie.co.uk, as well some brochure and stationery design, packaging and brand development.
February saw us finishing off the V Farm Shopify website. V Farm is an advanced horticulture company, developing products for vertical indoor farming. The website allows them to showcase their products and for growers to buys consumables and accessories for their setups. We also moved on to developing a bespoke quote calculator for the site towards the end of the year which has now been released as a phase 1 version and can be found on the site.
March was a real mixed bag of artworking, vehicle livery design, print production, exhibition collateral, and the second phase of packgenie.co.uk development.
In April we completed and launched the new website for Theatre Centre, inline with their new ‘low-fi’ brand direction. This project allowed us to try out some interesting button styles, transitions, and work in some motion graphics, which we love to do.
Theatre Centre brings world-class theatre straight into the heart of schools. Our productions present big ideas and difficult questions that can help young audiences make sense of a complex and changing world. We use the power of stories, writing and performance to support students and teachers in their learning across a range of subjects to build confidence and aspirations.
In May, we wrapped up a project with Mercurial Arts, ‘Histories at Hobmoor’, a National Heritage Lottery funded project which is a collection of stories from adults and children moving to, and living in Yardley, sharing their memories, and encouraging local residents from the community to get involved.
Roofbase’s 6th branch opened its doors in Bristol in this month. As well as being responsible for social media and direct marketing campaigns, we also designed and produced all site signage, wayfinding graphics, vehicle livery, and online media for the new branch.
In July, Oliver joined us as frontend web developer. Oliver is a Computer Science graduate and brings a wealth of knowledge to the company. He’s already been instrumental in helping push the company forward, through building our internal Project Viewer software, and implemented our new web workflow with ‘Git’ version control of all sites, making for a bulletproof coding environment.
One of our more faster paced web projects, in September we launched the new website for Worcester Arts Workshop, which is a community arts hub who work with vulnerable, marginalised and hard to reach individuals and communities, especially young people through a high quality, interdisciplinary, socially engaged artistic participatory programme which aims to result in positive change and enjoyable experiences in the local community.
To the credit of the team, the whole project was turned around in about 6 weeks due to a very tight client deadline which had to be met.
In October we moved to our new office at the end of the warehouse, Studio 19, next to the courtyard and garden. We now have a self contained studio, mezzanine level and meeting space / cafe. The new space benefits from being on the quayside and has great views of the canal and gardens, and we look forward to adding our own stamp to this space over the next year.
If you’ve not already visited us, pop over for a coffee sometime 😀.
Believe it or not, we don’t just work on web development projects. In November, Richard George Tailoring launched their new brand which we created for them, with RS Creative producing the photography. We’re really happy with what we were able to create for them and we look forward to seeing them establish themselves in 2020.
December we were looking ahead and planning 2020, as well as wrapping up 2019’s marketing campaigns. We enjoyed a festive company outing to Clarendon Arms in Kenilworth, (who we also designed and built the website for).
Wishing you a Happy New Year, from all of us at Twentytwo.
