WJ have produced Rathbones' annual report and accounts for the past nine years. This is the latest incarnation, with rounded corners and scene setting imagery – a major leap from where we first started. The bespoke photography sits among 180 pages, more than 60 graphs and 80 charts, making this a big beast to deliver with an immovable deadline. Our 'real world' practical design approach and meticulous project management ensures this very involved project always completes, on time and to the highest of standards.
IoD Advance is an app that enables a greater level of interactivity for IoD members. We designed the overarching brand and how it was applied to the interface. Hailed as 'Tinder for Business' by the Evening Standard and also featured in the FT, the app has been a huge success, meeting all its membership sign up targets. Everything is different from the traditional way a member might engage with the IoD. For example, when visiting the IoD building you sign up via a QR (Quick Response) code. An alert is then sent to members of your network who are in the building. The app also allows you to have free flow communications with other members and mentors as well as keeping you up to speed so you can make the most of your membership.
Client sign up is key to Rathbones' continued success but with so many different services and options the range of forms involved is enormous. The right form needs to be sent to the right person every time to ensure the sign up process never falters. Having helped with a review of all existing forms and client packs, we helped Rathbones simplify the whole suite. Consistency was key to build familiarity and ease for all internal and external audiences who participate in filling and checking forms. We streamlined the formats, typography, colour ways and graphic elements in use, building in clear signposting of different types. Rathbones now have a collection of forms that meet all internal needs, while being accessible and straightforward for their clients.
Joaillier Privé offer a unique bespoke jewellery service. They are not on the high street which is why their brochure is so key in communicating with potential clients.

WJ have helped Walker Bushe with their marketing for many years, designing their identity, producing direct marketing and creating presentations. Our most recent collaboration is the company website. Walker Bushe needed it to do three things. Show their work, show the sectors they work in and show how they work. It was important for them to communicate their culture as well as the commissions they've been involved in, to appeal to both clients and potential employees. www.walkerbushe.com
