Charlie Luxton, Director of Charlie Luxton Design architecture practice, approached us to redesign his company website and create a new identity.
The design studio had grown and the team wanted a new, contemporary and elegant site where the buildings would take centre stage as a testament to their skills and approach to architecture. The website also had to incorporate the work that Charlie does as a tv presenter of many lifestyle programs, such as Home by the Sea and Building the Dream, and talks at events such as Grand Designs Live.
We planned the site map and designed a bespoke website using simple and clean typography, adding an accent of personality on the type logo. For this we used a font inspired by the typefaces of the French Renaissance and reworked to display a minimal and angular serif reminiscent of architectural details. After experimenting with colour we settled on a clean, cool grey to sit on a white background and translucent panels that pop up throughout the site.
The studio identity was distilled from the website and designed for the business cards, letterheads and invoices as well as signature banners and social media icon.
