Design genius Thomas Heatherwick has completed the transformation of an historic mill into the new distillery and visitor centre for Bombay Sapphire gin.
The film was originally produced in Stereoscopic and we set up a 3D cinema on site at the distillery for VIPs.
We completed an animation which follows a white dove flying in and around the complex of restored Georgian and Victorian buildings flanking the River Test in Hampshire. The film provides a tour of the complex including the beautiful copper stills, the tasting bar and also the two new glass houses designed by Heatherwick for growing the famous botanicals used to flavour the gin – including juniper, angelica, coriander and cassia.
Serif is a collection of screens, televisions, we designed for Samsung during the past two years.
Serif is a television that moves away from a preoccupation with ultra-flat screens. Instead, it is an object that can be turned around and manipulated. It can stand anywhere, even on the floor with its own legs. What we were looking for was a solid presence that would sit naturally in various environments, just like an object or a piece of furniture.
In profile, it forms a clear capital “I” shape, its slim body broadening to form a surface like a little shelf at the top.
We also designed the interface inside Serif.
Serif comes in 3 sizes, Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini.
Serif and Serif Medium come with optional feet (that are included in the box).
3 colors are proposed, White, Dark blue and Red.
Off-grid communities such as those in sub-Saharan Africa can pay thousands of times as much as the rest of us for their energy. Designer Jim Reeves has developed a simple, low-cost gear-train and generator that uses a descending weight to power a perpetual light source. Children can do their homework and study, families and friends can eat together and interact after dark adding new dimensions and possibilities to their lives.
I hope that this film is a healthy nudge for people to shake up their lives a little bit.
Jed’s radical choice to quit his job and ride his bike across the world is a perfect challenge to the rest of us to get out of the routine and make some scary decisions. If you’re afraid of a decision ahead of you, you’re probably on the right track. Choose it. !

Nixon brings together larger-than-life surf legends Herbie and Nathan Fletcher for a road trip down memory lane in a new short film entitled Peninsula South, where the father and son team head down to Baja and revisit some old haunts from previous adventures. Director Riley Blakeway captures Herbie’s pioneering spirit and the close-knit relationship he has built with his son Nathan as they set out on an expedition they’ve not made together in over twenty years, reignites both their love for Baja and their deep appreciation for one another. By the late 60s, Herbie had already begun exploring Baja in search of un-crowded lineups and adventure. As his life moved forward, he built a family who share his love of travel, and who have joined him countless times to explore the fickle southern peninsula. On this latest mission, Nathan discusses his father’s contagious, childlike enthusiasm for surfing and life, and shares how he hopes to pass those ideals down to the next Fletcher generation.
