Qian, our first intern of 2012
Our first intern of 2012, this is Qian. She is from France and Qian studied Graphic Design at Lycée Le Corbusier in Strasbourg, graduating in 2011. It’s great when we have a foreign intern with us, they have a different way of looking at things which is always refreshing. Qian has been working on some mood boards for an up-coming project with one of our arts clients. The mood boards are looking great, so good in fact they could almost be presented as initial ideas.
Our Christmas card for 2011
Our studio Christmas card for 2011. New boy Scott is meant to be popping out of our massive cracker, well, that was the original idea. Happy Christmas one and all – see you in 2012!
Our Paris trip, December 2011
This year we decided to do something different for our Christmas ‘do’. Rather than hit a North Laine pub for pie, mash and beer, we decided to up the cultural ante and head over to Paris for the day. Destination Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris where we saw a Jean-Paul Goude retrospective and a rather nice Stefan Sagmeister exhibition.
A new brand for The Old Market
We helped Yes/No Productions (the team behind Stomp) to get a new brand for The Old Market in Hove – a venue they had just acquired as a new home for the Yes/No team. The final logo (above) was the result of a design competition across schools in Brighton & Hove. The winning entry, by 15 year old Hove Park School pupil Jake Lawman, didn’t need too much polishing by us… it’s anarchic energy fits perfectly with the Yes/No team spirit.
Say hello to Harry
We had a really good intern in last week. This is Harry, he’s only 17 and we think he is going to have a great career ahead of him in art and design. Well done Harry!

Our design on the streets of Brighton
Exciting things happening on Kensinghton Street, North Laine, Brighton. Our design work for Brighton Festival 2011 is being reproduced by graffiti artists Grafik Warfare. The mural will be left on display ‘indefinitely’, as a reminder of the iconic status of Aung San Suu Kyi and her contribution to Brighton Festival 2011. Very exciting!
Award-winning design for Barclaycard
Our design and branding work has helped Barclaycard to win Best Card Design of the Year at the UK Card Awards 2010. We have designed the full range of Barclaycard credit cards. Our work has spanned several global territories including Russia, India, Pakistan, Egypt and Portugal. Following the card rebrand the UK Barclaycard customer base rose to 11.7 million and it’s international customer base rose to 11.6 million. A staggering 1 in 5 UK credit cards is a Barclaycard. Rebecca Parker, Senior Identity Manager at Barclaycard says, “Harrison are always enthusiastic and helpful, and can be trusted to deliver excellent results, on brief and on time. Harrison have built up a great working relationship with Barclaycard and we don’t hesitate to turn to them for creative guidance.”
Gold Award for our VisitBrighton branding
We are thrilled to hear that our design and branding work has helped VisitBrighton to win a Gold Award for Destination Marketing at the Beautiful South Tourism Awards last night. This is a bit of a coup, as we have knocked M&C Saatchi into Silver position with their marketing campaign for VisitKent. John Carmichael, Marketing Manager at VisitBrighton says, “A big part of our recent award submission was to demonstrate marketing activity based on a sound brand strategy that provided the platform for all our messages – and that’s the work Harrison have done. Another bonus is the travel journalists on press visits to Brighton increasingly write features that ‘reflect’ our brand values, sometimes word for word. For me, that’s really powerful!”
