We are a digital communications and creative agency based in Brighton.
We create events, art exhibitions, installations, marketing, PR, and social media campaigns to engage the unengaged. Our 3D scanning & 3D printing, photography, website design, video, graphic design and copy writing delight the disillusioned.
We provide highly skilled bespoke project teams to turn your dreams into reality. Think of us as the Swiss army knife that helps you thrive in the digital media jungle (though we won't fit in your pocket and we're not actually Swiss).

We've worked with organisations big and small, including charities and the almighty mass media. Here are some of our favourite projects:

Four Graphics website

Audience reach was 23M and ad value equivalency of the coverage was £153,000.The project was supported by the Arts Council England.
Under the West Pier
Like it or loathe it (we definitely like it), the skeletal remains of Brighton's West Pier are an iconic symbol of Brighton's faded grandeur that plays host to wild seas, stunning sunsets, and beautiful starling murmurations. We provided photography of artefacts at the first West Pier sale for the West Pier Trust and Brighton news websites.
The Word Monster
A romping chomping journey through the alphabet for 2 to 5 year olds with the help of a very hungry Word Monster. This book was written and designed by Ian Byrne. Several other children's stories have been finished with more in the pipeline, some of which are written in rhyme and raise awareness about issues such as climate change. We are looking for a publisher just in case you are interested.
