Continuing our work with Canonical, the curators of rapidly growing free and open-source operating system Ubuntu, we were asked to look at their ‘first boot’ animation video – a short sequence that plays when the computer is started up for the first time that should communicate Ubuntu’s core values – Reliable, Collaborative, Freedom, Precise.
Nestled in the home counties, you may come across Royal Holloway. No, not the London suburb, or the infamous prison. Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, to give its full title, is a world-class university just outside Egham in Surrey. Opened in 1886 by self-made medicines millionaire philanthropist Thomas Holloway, the college was originally established as a learning institution for women at the suggestion of Holloway’s wife, Jane. The main Founder’s Building is impressive from the outset with its flamboyant pillars, turrets and towers inspired by Château Chambourd in the Loire valley.
Within an hour of stepping foot in the office for my digital internship at The Team, I was in full swing on my first project – I had to throw myself in head first, switching on my creative brain and immerse myself in the fast-paced dynamic of the creative environment.

Last week I really enjoyed visiting three London design shows: Workout, D&AD New Blood and New Designers. After a crazy three years of fun and fast paced projects, the hottest new design graduates finally got to grab a beer and show off their folios.
I find writing about energy efficiency really hard. A lot of people just don’t care about it. They’re going to die and really, the solution isn’t in the lifetime of their generation. Why should they care about saving energy or saving their company’s energy costs? It’s something they just want to stick at the back of the mind. Don’t believe me? Take a look at London at night. Every office light is on.
We are very pleased to announce that our work on the British Gas Simply Thankyou campaign was awarded last night for Design Effectiveness.

The Civil Service Benevolent Fund’s new name and brand identity developed by The Team has brought about dramatic improvements in engagement with civil servants looking for help. The Team won the work following a competitive pitch in February and was asked to review the identity of the charity – which last year celebrated its 126th anniversary – and to look at how to better reflect its purpose and future direction.
It’s a fact. Our clients want creative thinking. It’s another fact that they want to recognise a return on their investment through a professionally executed design strategy. And to some it’s a little known fact that The Team are ranked as No.3 in the Design Business Association Effectiveness Awards League Table. We call these awards our “Silver Bullets”. Others call them our bling! And as the only award scheme that uses commercial data as a key judging criteria, they are both prestigious and authoritative.
