The undersides of skateboards get scratched, kicked, destroyed. So why do we print graphics we love on the very place that takes such a beating?
We created a series of skateboards that became skate-able protest signs.
Harnessing the hate for certain controversial politicians and celebrities Hateboards became a powerful motivator. The harder you grinded, the more you destroyed the likes of Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Kanye West to name a few.
The boards are now sold online and are stocked by over a dozen skate shops across the UK.

Whilst this is all in the name of fun, people living near these parks turned festival venues often have to put up with this partying into the early hours.
But they are not the only locals affected by the beats, what about the poor birds that have to actually sleep in parks?
We took it upon ourselves to help our feathered friends, by installing birdhouses with soundproofing, to cancel out the carnival atmosphere and give them a them a good night’s sleep.

Bombay Sapphire is not considered the traditional tipple of choice at Xmas, seen more as a summer drink rather than something to sip by the fire.
This Christmas we decided to shake tradition up.
We worked with leading mixologists to create six new Bombay cocktails with a festive twist which were sold in bars and clubs around the UK.
We also worked with a group of influential artists and launched a range of prototype products to make people rethink their ways this winter.
