Work: The Key Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
The Key is a global resource from Theirworld and the Global Business Coalition for Education to equip anyone to advocate powerfully for education. It demonstrates how education underpins nearly every single social and economic goal - from climate action and public health to economic recovery and innovation. We created the name, look and feel, film and website – launched to coincide with this year's UN General Assembly in New York.

Work: Music of the Spheres Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Our copies of Aurora Orchestra's first ever recording for Deutsche Grammaphon have finally arrived in the studio. Aurora have become world famous for performing complete symphonies from memory, in this case Mozart's 'Jupiter'. It's an extraordinary thing to behold, and captured beautifully here, along with Max Richter, Thomas Ades and even David Bowie. This is celestial stuff.

Opinion: Inside Tiffany's Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Channel 5 drew a record-breaking audience for their special on Tiffany & Co, the most famous jewellery store in the world. The fact that the show featured Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Gaga and the Playful Saboteur, Nick Eagleton, had something to do with it of course. A 24 carat performance all round!

Work: Love Welcomes Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Love Welcomes works with women in refugee camps weaving beautiful homewares. But they are so much more than that. Each one has a hidden message – an orange thread woven in that is made from the discarded life vests that brought them there. That inspired our new identity for them which weaves a hidden message into the name using morse code and the universal call of S-O-S.

Sing for Freedom is a choir for survivors of torture. They sing from the heart, which is where it will reach you. They have reclaimed their voices and use them to spread joy. We have learnt a great deal about freedom from them and have loved developing a joyful new identity for them.

When in Rome... Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
During these tough times, you can find comfort and inspiration in the most unlikely places. Roman poet Ovid wrote some great lines, many of which strangely relate to what we are going through now. He would no doubt be horrified that his name rhymes with a disease that’s now more famous than he is.

Thanks Sam for the great animations!

Did you know the first bike scheme originated in Amsterdam in the summer of 1965 when the anarchist group Provo painted 50 white bicycles and left them freely on the streets for anyone to use. From a small protest movement, now copied by governments worldwide.
