Sketching with Selini

Posted on: January 20th, 2012 by Adam Bestwick No Comments

We have produced a series of ‘concept sketch style’ illustrations for Selini Bespoke Jewellery for their ongoing jewel creations.

Working with existing design sketches by jewellery designer Rob Girling we wanted to enhance these original concepts and use them as a theme throughout their marketing.

It’s been nice to dust off the old markers and pencils from my uni days and get stuck in!

The ‘Selini Crest’ brand reposition

Posted on: January 8th, 2012 by Adam Bestwick No Comments

We recently finished a brand reposition, the ‘Selini Crest’ for our client Selini Bespoke Jewellery. This identity was quite complex and took a lot of testing and experimentation to perfect.

Overall this project is a great case study to post on our blog and will give you a glimpse into the amount of work that goes into this type of project.

Over the coming months I’ll go through the various processes and challenges we faced in creating this new brand.

AB&Co major site update

Posted on: January 5th, 2012 by Adam Bestwick No Comments

We are proud to announce the launch of a major update to our site.
To say it’s been tough completing this alongside our work is an understatement!

There will be numerous updates to follow over the coming months but at least this
initial step has finally been achieved.

A big thank you to the people involved along the way especially Kevin Hemingway (online marketing) and Paul Forbes (Lead Developer).
