We were responsible for creating a 360° brand campaign for The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering. This global prize recognises and celebrates outstanding advances in engineering that have changed the world.
The project was shortlisted at Cannes, a Eurobest and LIA winner and has over 40,000 hits on the Behance network.
Engineering is fundamental. It tackles the big global issues, it transports, transforms, informs and protects. From fashion to fusion there is no part of our lives that it does not touch. The QEPrize is a new global £1m prize that celebrates world-changing innovations in engineering that have made a difference to humanity.
The QEPrize is an iconic prize that promotes and celebrates the story of modern engineering. It requires an iconic trophy that embodies the spirit of modern engineering and the values of the QEPrize.
We gave young people with interests in Science, Engineering, Design, Art and Architecture the opportunity to design the trophy for the QEPrize by entering the ‘Create the Trophy’ competition. The event was held at the Science Museum on Wednesday 5 December and the winner is 17 year old Jennifer Leggett from Tonbridge, with her beautifully designed tree-like structure. Her design was selected by our distinguished panel of judges: the late Dame Zaha Hadid, Sir Nicholas Serota, Ian Blatchford, Deyan Sudjic and Yewande Akinola.
Using the latest programming and design technology we built a unique digital application to design, build and create the trophy for the QEPrize. The top entries were 3D printed into prototypes to allow the judges to view the creations with their designers before selecting the winner. Her design was later realised and made by English designer Thomas Heatherwick. The final trophies were presented by The Queen to the winners [The internet pioneers] at Buckingham Palace.

The Russian Copper Company's [RCC] kaleidoscopic identity, focused on a central white triangle, represents the company’s concentration on smart mining. The color palette combines the red, white, and blue of the Russian flag with hues of copper. The visual system was applied to marketing materials, stationery, and promotional items.
We were tasked with creating immersive environments for trade shows that introduced the RCC brand to the world. At the Innoprom Industrial Trade Fair and the Russia-Kazakhstan Forum, RCC impressed visitors with my augmented-reality mine exhibit, touch screens and animated glass boxes.
We were tasked with creating Renault’s digital guidelines and the look and feel for their global websites.
The global rebrand for Mott MacDonald has been quick to say the least. With aggressive time lines we have rebranded, animated and created the north America website within 4 months.
We were tasked with igniting a passionate brand, leading conversations across the Renault business and to begin the process of cultural change; inspiring product pride and creating new actions by embedding the brand into their daily work.
5 brand films were created followed by highly successful internal Instagram competition that has seen nearly 3000 images posted since it’s launch in January 2016.

In branding news, accountancy giant Ernst & Young today announced that its brand guidelines are now being observed faultlessly, thanks to the award winning spoof news show produced and directed by Dan Howarth.
Warning of terrible consequences that occur when designers ignore key branding conventions, the news show is now hugely popular with Ernst & Young staff the world over. And now, here’s Jeff with the sports.
The project consisted of a new brand mark, a new visual identity and bespoke brand centre. The success of this lead us to achieve a branding agency first - the creation of an global ad campaign for print, digital and TV.
The brand was overhauled from the inside out, with one branding agency and a small internal team masterminding the entire project.
Mazda is a brand with a wealth of stories to tell. Yet few outside the brand and its keenest fans are aware of its heritage or philosophy. Our task was to produce a destination site that would house a diverse set of contents, then a series of interactive elements that will engage and inform anyone curious about Mazda.
The campaign opens with eight web films covering various stories; Mazda's roots in Hiroshima and the influence of traditional craft skills (such as sword-making) are two of the eight themes at the campaign's launch. The campaign is held together by the line 'Defy Convention'.
Stef Tiratelli, chief executive of Team Mazda Europe, says, 'The new strategy allows Mazda to share some wonderful, authentic stories in a meaningful and engaging way, and marks the start of a new wave of communication from the car marque.'
Creative direction was shared between Dan Howarth at Eskimo8, and Eddy Greenwood and Stan Gruel at JWT Dusseldorf. JWT Dusseldorf filmed various Mazda employees in Japan, highlighting Mazda's heritage and values.

When I became Landor’s Digital Creative Director, they decided to set me a challenge. Make the agency’s first app, get it approved by the app store (tricky bit) and get people using it. In less than two months. Less than two months later, babies all over the world were having their progress recorded, daily, with BabyGro. The app lets you see exactly how your baby’s features emerge and bloom. It even made the app store’s photography top twenty.
