Anew is five years old this month and what an amazing, privileged, experience it has been.

For one blog only, we remind ourselves what we’ve done.

An intro from TS Eliot seems appropriate:

“Time present and time past, Are both perhaps present in time future, And time future contained in time past’.

What indeed have we done with our time in five years?

Quite a lot it turns out.

From music, wine and climate tech to food, fintech and fabrics. Amongst others, some particular highlights include helping:

Right now we are working with companies both in the UK and internationally on naming, logo, labels, design, market research and strategy projects for a new wine launches – in the UK and the USA; a mezcal, a ground-breaking climate-tech business and a sumptuous coffee table book for a private aviation company

And we couldn't let the moment pass without acknowledging some of the wonderful creative talents with  whom we have collaborated on these projects including designers, writers, photographers, web developers and general all round creative masterminds, including:

Jo and Effie (Luxury Branding Design Specialists) at SO Creative

Will Parr (Creative Director)  at Studio Parr
