17 December 2015 — Merry Christmas

The Studio Christmas Dinner in the Dove (where else?). We closed early this year and will be open on the 4th of January again.We do no annoy our clients with digital Chrismas cards but let me take this opportunity to thank our clients for their trust and wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a great New Year!

17 December 2015 — Bubble Tea

We designed quite a bit of tea packagings over the years. Somehow clients seem to think when you have done one well you must be good at it. This time it was bubble Tea. All made from circles. Easy but nice

10 December 2015 — Mr. Spiekermann

Went to Berlin. Met Mr. Spiekermann in his amazingly well organized print workshop. Respect.

27 November 2015 — et encore...

The Visit of French Students from Lyon becomes a regular event in the Mind Design Calendar. We tried to scare them away with (according to our lovely French intern Auré) disgusting British finger food but they keep coming.

15 November 2015 — Oldies but Goldies

Holger's German students came to London again for a one week excursion. There is always a theme to those trips. This time we only met designers over 65. Among them Alan Kitching and corporate design legends such as Michael Wolff and Mike Dempsey. Good to speak to the people who really have seen and done it all.

03 October 2015 — Noor Fares live

Today we launched our new identity and website for the London fine jewellery brand Noor Fares. Coinciding with Paris Fashion week. The new website we designed is responsive, dynamic and has more social media integration than anyone could ask for. All singing, dancing with changing navigation bar colours. Our developer Tudinh has done a great job. Samples for Noors new packaging are on the way too.

17 September 2015 — And Another One Bites The Dust...

We keep a little diary or our logos that have been destroyed by clever marketing people or those who can put a Pinterest page together and think they know all about design. Today we learned that our Circus logo (featured in many design publications) has been replaced by something…hmm, let's call it 'less complex'. I am not even against change — we designers live on re-designing things — but why does it always have to be something so dull and predictable? Would be nice to actually see someone kicking out our old design and doing it better. And not another website with parallax scrolling, please. Rant ends.

18 August 2015 — Studio Space

Our Studio has always been far to big for us. We hear of other spaces where 10 designers squeeze into half of our space. So we decided to share the space. Ideally looking for web designers or developers. Please get in touch if you are interested. Brilliant space with lots of daylight in a great location. Plus a huge choice of over-priced hipster sandwiches for lunch just around the corner. The bikes will move, no worries.

17 August 2015 — New Team complete

The new team (apart from Holger, who took the photo). Truly international. France, Italy, Belgium and Germany (twice).

10 August 2015 — Yoga Campus Live

The Yoga Campus Website is live. There are still a few bugs to fight but apart from its sister website, The Life Centre this is probably one of the most complex websites we ever did. If you fancy becoming a Yogi, are searching for enlightenment or battling midlife crisis, here you can search through hundreds of courses (in many different ways). I just wish they would use the right dashes when putting text into the CMS. Given up explaining the difference between hyphens and n-dashes. Lets hope for some typographic enlightenment.
