Produced for The Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust and the South West Coastal Path.
We designed and manufactured (with the help of the loverly Jim at SWCL) a range of map boards high-lighting interesting walks in and around Torbay. Printed on the back of 10mm acrylic these weather proof boards also have the added advantage of allowing scratches to be melted away.

St Austell Brewery recently took over the running of the pub and needed a quick spruce up to ensure it met with their standards for the summer season.
We supplied new tables and sofas for the extensive external seating area, new branding and signage and artwork for the pub interior.
The inside was decorated throughout and the bar stripped down and refinished on site.
We always like to get samples back from our print work, these new folders for LMS Highways popped through the post today, 2 Spot Pantones, including a vibrant PMS 021 ornage, and a nice thick spot UV varnish to the logo really help these standout.
We’re not just all about business here at Fruition, a core part of our ethos is to give back into the community. We allow for 10% of our time to be dedicated to local community groups. In the past we’ve arranges festivals (Transition Festival Torquay), provided advice to Non Profit Oraganisation, provided illustrations, designed logos and flyers all for good causes.
For the past couple of years we’ve helped the Rotary Club promote their Pedal Car Grand Prix. When Rotary Club Memebr Graham Gardener relocated to Gainsborough he got in touch to see if he could use our Torquay poster for Gainsborough’s own Grand Prix, and of course we said yes.
If your part of a local charity or non profit and need a little design help then drop us a line.

Today we’ve all been ooohing and aaahing over a new magazine in the office.
oh comely was started by my eldest daughter’s university friends and associates. They wanted to offer a magazine that is interesting, fun, intelligent, good looking and offered an alternative to the run of the mill glossys.
I reckon it has done all of this and more……. It is unique and very easy on the eye.
As a designer, it pleases me hugely!
Introducing Dropmark found on Swissmiss
It let’s you drop files right from your computer, or the web, to create organized collections. Watch the above video and join me in being completely blown away.
Dropmark let’s you invite friends or co-workers to collaborate and edit your Dropmarks in real-time. They are private and secure, unless you choose to share them (each collection has a handy short URL).
Access your Dropmarks via the web and RSS, or get nerdy with their API—it’s your data after all, use it however you want. It’s not about “social media” (they won’t ask you to “follow” anyone), it’s about organizing and sharing your ideas in the easiest way possible.
Major, major hat tip off to Skylar! dropmark is nothing short of revolutionary!

40ft Backflips, Double Backflips and Front-flips, just because you were born with spina bifida doesn’t mean you can’t be an extreme athlete
Unit, one of the world’s fastest growing action sports brands, has just released a six-minute mini-documentary on one of their star athletes, Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham.
Wheelz, 19, has obtained a cult following globally for his antics with the Nitro Circus Live Tour after successfully landing 40ft Backflips, Double Backflips and Front-flips in the past six months… in a wheelchair.
The Las Vegas teenager is one of the most inspirational athletes in the entire action-sports industry; he hasn’t let spina bifida dictate his lot in life and has taken his custom-built wheelchair to places they’ve never been before, including skateparks, BMX parks and of course, the Giganta-Ramp.
Unit sat down with Wheelz during a recent trip to the USA and found out what makes the laid-back, humble teenager tick. Visit www.youtube.com/unitridersaus to check it out.
Following on from the successful Nitro Circus Live New Zealand Tour Wheelz is back in Vegas and preparing for the Nitro Circus Australian Regional Tour, which kicks off on March 9 at Albury’s Lavington Sports Ground.

“In 2005 I began work on my first documentary, Helvetica, which looked at the worlds of typography and graphic design through the eyes of one loved/hated/ubiquitous little font. I wasn’t a designer, or even a filmmaker, just a design geek who really wanted to see a movie about fonts! After Helvetica was released in 2007, I had the idea for a second film, Objectified, which focused on industrial design and product design, and our relationship with the manufactured objects that surround us. But I realized there was more to explore, and had the initial ideas for a third film that would also examine how design affects our lives. So I began thinking of the films as a “design trilogy”

My surfing goal this year, to emulate the board walking tricks (see from 4 mins+), I will post the results soon.

Texture, smell, viscosity… some of the reasons why letterpress is a graphic designer’s dream.
With the ever encroaching spread of digital images these factors are forever loosing their hold, budgets grow smaller and projects are measure solely against sealed triple tender bids, leading to a homogenising of printed material. Letterpress is one of the most tactile methods to reinforce a brand, a product or service.
Book printers said Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Unmakeable” Book “could not be made.” Belgian publishing house Die Keure proved them wrong. Jonathan Safran Foer’s book is an interactive paper-sculpture: Foer and his collaborators at Die Keure in Belgium took the pages of another book, Bruno Schulz’s The Street of Crocodiles, and literally carved a brand new story out of them using a die-cut technique.
