We love a bit of great Italian design… Italian designer Lapo Ciatti has created the Loomi Armchair for Opinion Ciatti as an “independent and functional microcosm”
The Loomi chair has a plump padded seat and wide backrest, designed to offer both privacy and comfort.
The chair can also be accessorised with a 180-degree swivel table for holding laptops, books and tablets.
“The optional swivel table turns it effortlessly into an independent and functional microcosm. An island ready for use that keeps up with our contemporary lifestyle, where the fluidity of space and time is paramount,” Opinion Ciatti explained.
Axe Edge, Buxton Brewery’s venerable flagship IPA is 10 years old this year! To celebrate this special occasion and Axe’s important place within the Buxton Brewery story they have released a group of special editions all in one go. From the original Axe Edge to the exotic Sesqui Axe, the ‘Axe Pack’ is available at buxtonbrewery.co.uk
We love our label design work (not to mention the requisite sampling). Plus the marketing, artwork and creative packaging we do for Buxton… so cheers – here’s to the next 10!
Anyone who makes Britain’s favourite spirit sooner or later has to come up with an Ready To Drink version in a can. The transition from gin label design from bottle to can isn’t always straightforward, but we think we aced it…
If you need to pep up your product development work you know who to call. Cheers!
…or game over. We finally got the sign off from Buxton Brewery for our latest designs after some challenging processes. We printed 4 colours onto silver substrate, leaving certain areas blank. This allowed the silver to shine through. Other areas were left blank apart from a reduced opacity colour giving a cool metallic effect.
There are seven enormous barrel aged beers in the range. These have been tasted nurtured, blended and sampled over the last two and a half years. There are Imperial Porters, Imperial Stouts, Dessert Beer, and Barley Wine. Coffee, Cacao and Chilli all feature, and the barrels used are some of the best from the transatlantic worlds of Highlands and Islands Scotch and the rich heritage of Bourbon.
“Themed on great Chess Grandmasters and Champions of the 19th and 20th Centuries, these beers span the decades, echoing complexity, subtlety, guile and creativity. From the 19th century’s Morphy and Steinitz, through Capablanca’s early 20th century dominance, to Lasker, Tal and Rudenko. All reflect the patience, skill, and determination to strive to be the best at what you do.”
…Three new super premium variants of Single Barrel Rain Shadow 2020 Imperial Stout. At 12% we needed it to look as good as it tastes… We experimented on printing 4 colours and white onto silver labels, allowing the lightening to really pop.
We think it worked! See for yourself, check out their range and order online:
