NoChintz Brand Refresh

Since the launch of our Graphics & Branding arm last July, we have been busily working behind the scenes to give our own NoChintz brand a refresh. Inspired by architectural symbols that reference materials we have created a series of graphic textures; copper, leather, earth and plywood, which play off a refined colour palette and cover all assets from print to online platforms. With our Brand Director Jo Briggs leading the creative, we have been working with her former studio Corporation Pop, in both the web build and our new format newsletter which lands this month too. The last 6 years have seen us grow substantially into a full service creative studio.
