Develop a property brand

Land Securities newly acquired plot in Harrow, North London, needed a solid identity to help it through the difficult planning stages and carry it through to development.

The sites previous life as Kodak's main factory was the inspiration for our viewfinder monogram H. We created bulletproof brand guidelines which allowed the viewfinder to expand and contract to highlight imagery and text; resulting in a simple, flexible brand with focus.

Bag a feast fit for a Queen.

The Royal Warrant Food + Drink Market is a biannual event held on the roof garden of Cardinal Place. Located with views of Buckingham Palace - and with the highest quality food on offer - the market is a chance for the public to eat like royalty. Our campaign identity gives a 'brown bag lunch' a touch of royal service that lets the public know this isn't a typical market.

Make the message stick.

Whilst Land Securities were constructing a new development in Victoria, they needed a hoarding to advertise the generic retail space that they were looking to sell.

Our giant price stickers carried the pertinent information about the latest offer.

Fit the whole world in your pocket.

Land Securities commissioned Turner Prize nominated artists Langlands & Bell to create a centrepiece sculpture for newbuild development New Street Square. Their piece, Virtual World, is an everchanging display of internet country codes, so for its companion brochure we continued the digital theme. A laser cut slip case mimics the sculpture, while inside commissioned photography showcases its many configurations.

Bring a little sunshine to someone's day.

Land Securities' annual event for agents and associates was scheduled for the end of a particulary wet and windy summer. Our invitation takes a wry smile at the British weather, highlighting the date with a ray of gold foiled sunshine amid a year of dull grey rainclouds.

Use space creatively.

Each year, Land Securities recognises three outstanding fine art graduates in their Studio Awards programme. The artists are each given studio space for the year in an Oxford Street town house, and the funding to produce a body of work over their year-long residency.

Our catalogue of their work takes a journey from street level up through three floors of artists' studios - a rare insight that opens the door on working practices and introduces the artists in their environment.
