What We Do

Our work spans multiple disciplines, including; Industrial Design, Product Design, Branding, UX & UI, Packaging and Visualisation.

Our name is inspired by a colour of wood - a subtle, muted and unobtrusive colour. Our philosophy is hidden within this. We believe that good design answers questions, is intuitive and brings benefit to the user; without shouting. We strive for simple solutions to what are often complex problems.  

We listen and translate our client’s requirements into straightforward and effective design strategy. We deliver our clients a thoughtful and refined service, with passion and free from ego.
