Having received a hugely positive response to the branding Glassup & Stoski created for Milestone 71, the team there decided to set up shop and have us work on some merchandise for them. The brief was for some ‘College style’ t-shirts and an alternative minimally branded version. Complete with heavy stitch baseball caps and enamel key rings the initial range has sold worldwide, most notably in the US. We are now working with them on a new collection for 2014.
An experiential roadshow was commissioned jointly by BBC Learning to mark the 100 year anniversary of the start of The First World War.

We work with Accent on a daily basis, assisting with everything from on-site point of sale signage to training manuals, industry advertising, exhibition design, tender document design and much more. Accent is a great example of where we work closely with an in-house team to handle some of the projects that they are either too busy to tackle or having our expertise will really benefit the outcome.
We worked with the team at Creator to evolve their logo and establish a brand slogan which could be used for the foundation of a new Glassup & Stoski designed website and 20 page brochure. The final logo is familiar to those used to the old logo, but a clear step forward in terms of simplicity and usability. The website is now live and the team are using the CMS to add updates themselves with our support on any bigger updates and changes. To coincide with the launch of the website we designed and established an online newsletter.

Working with Tarox, we sat down with the team and discussed at length the USP that the Italian performance brakes manufacturer had over the competition. It's heritage and fastidious approach to testing stood out as key points in the Tarox story. Pictured right is the first batch of a series of vintage look ads with comprehensive copy, filled with the personality of the brand. We are currently producing digital versions for a variety of automotive sites and forums to compliment these press ads.
As a response to the ever pressing need to supply retailers with logos for a variety of applications, Tarox worked with us to create both a printed and interactive PDF outlining the appropriate logo usages. This was then adapted to form an online version, allowing for individual downloads of every colour, style and format.

Mynt Automotive is a brand new cleaning brand based in Northern Ireland. Company founder Darragh Loughran approached Glassup & Stoski on the back of our packaging work with Kleenfreaks. Darragh asked us to work with him not only on a logo and brand, but also the company name. We presented a number of company name ideas and in the end it was Mynt that came out the winner. However Darragh was keen to avoid a mint colour being used within the branding and to keep a very neutral colour palette for the core brand. Here we have shown the symbol, full logo and it's application to business cards.
The Arts faculty at the University of Surrey was keen to develop a stand-alone look for their communications. Beginning with a logo before producing concepts for the Arts Calendar and website, Glassup & Stoski had to be mindful of keeping it very much under the University of Surrey umbrella brand while creating a unique and more arty style for the Arts faculty. There will be more updates regarding this project coming soon.
We worked with PR Agency Polygon Marketing to produce a variety of materials for the Autosport International Show at Birmingham's NEC in 2015. We carefully selected four race series vehicles that use Carless Race Fuels before our illustrator created them in vector format and applied a custom race livery to them. We applied the new visual style to a variety of material including feathered flags, USBs, flyers, posters and fuel barrels.
‘A wonderful place to explore’ is a brochure and guide to the University of Surrey’s surrounding area.

When it comes to race car fabrication and chassis work there are few that can hold a candle to the Robinson family. Andy, Luke and the team have been responsible for building some of the quickest door cars in European drag racing and their prowess extends beyond the quarter mile into a variety of historic circuit racing and modern road going projects too. As Luke looks to bring more lifestyle and hobbyist fabrication under the roof he felt it may benefit from its own branded wing, aptly named Dynasty. Glassup and Stoski put pen to paper and the result is shown right; a logo and symbol loaded with personality, conveying the Robinson lineage and the flare of a welding rod all in one.
Compass is a charity that is part of the Wimbledon Guild and sponsored in-part by the NHS. It is a service designed to help people deal with the great array of challenges posed when they suffer the loss of a loved one. From practical advice on funerals to talking therapies to help with the emotional suffering, Compass is the first port of call for those that need help in this situation. Glassup & Stoski helped prepare a list of potential names for the service and worked with the Wimbledon Guild to create the Compass brand and all the subsequent collateral.
We have developed a variety of tender templates for Accent Catering Services. These documents range from 32 to 160pp and the design often reflects Accent's client's style and brand.

As an emerging brand in the automotive cleaning world, Kleenfreaks wanted to make a statement with their branding. Glassup & Stoski designed a logo which evolved the brand without making the change too radical. The positive response from the new branding and packaging has been overwhelming and Kleenfreaks have seen the business go from strength to strength on the back of the new look and more professional appearance within the marketplace. Also shown are some fun business cards that were distributed at events while a social media campaign ran on instagram. Each product was given its own hashtag and the appropriate card was handed out with the purchase of each item. People then published images of themselves using the product with its coordinating hashtag in a bid to win more goodies. Glassup & Stoski devised the concept and completed the design and artworking for Kleenfreaks.
Brand guru’s Matt Fulbrook and Greg Ovenden run a consultancy business, specialising in the growth of FMCG brands.

Clean and Shiny are one of the original online car care retailers who have been specialising in the highest quality detailing products for over 10 years.

Alongside the usual stationery, a social media kit was produced for the team to ensure that the new logo was properly applied to all streams of communication.

Equiteq is a strategic advisory and mergers & acquisitions (M&A) transaction firm 100% focused on the consulting sector. We worked with Polygon Marketing and Paula Allerton of Equiteq to evolve the styles established in their Brand Manifesto and create a flexible layout which would convey statistics and information clearly for their latest Global Consulting Mergers and Acquisitions Report. Adhering to the Brand Manifesto, the cover style is very distinctive using simple vector shapes in the corporate colour palette and conveys both a sense of destination and the perscribed 'double meaning'. Once the report was finished and sent to print, all the graph elements were then supplied separately for the internal team to use in Powerpoint and presentation documents.

‘Uncharted Places’ was a crowd-funded project by ‘A Strangely Isolated Place’ (aka Ryan Griffin) that saw a compilation of ambient music collated onto a beautifully produced LP complete with opaque vinyl, poster, t-shirt and more. Nick took the lead in creating a style that captured the ‘places’ that inspired each track, before working it seamlessly into the established ASIP logo for the cover. This also worked perfectly for the disc centre on the A-side while the B-side and jacket reverse were a natural extension for the triangular images.

As part of the launch for the £56m 5G Innovation building, the University of Surrey were keen to create an abstract style that could be applied in an almost limitless amount of ways.

We were then asked to work up a set of icons that quickly communicated key points regarding the 5G project.
As the 5G Innovation Centre opening drew closer, the University asked us to work on a social media targeted infographic that would highlight the benefits and answer the most simple questions around 5G. Glassup & Stoski created a design that could be both static and interactive before chopping up sections for use on Facebook and Twitter.
Also working with the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, we produced a concept aimed at encouraging uptake for courses and careers in engineering. After establishing a visual style in-keeping with the University, we produced a set of icons to reflect each key area of the engineering industry.
