Down by the river


Working closely with Reading's Two Rivers Press and author Dr Gillian Clark, we have designed and produced Down by the River, a fully illustrated history of the Thames and Kennet in Reading. The book was launched in the Spring at the Museum of English Rural Life. According Two Rivers Press: "The book is attractively designed, thoroughly researched, and generously provided with maps, drawings, and contemporary photographs, many not seen before."

Gillian Clark grew up in a Caversham boat-building family. As well as designing the book, Design for Print advised on editorial matters took some photographs, and supplied the printed copies. In the course of the work we discovered that Gillian Clark's father had saved David Woodward's uncle Ronald Allen from drowning.



Walking the Thames with the French Horn

Besides being restaurant critic Michael Winner's favourite place for duck, the French Horn Hotel at Sonning on Thames is beautifully situated in a sheltered arm of the Thames, just at the foot of the Chiltern Hills.

We devised, photographed, and wrote the words for a series of leaflets describing some of the walks available from the hotel. Our design work features a series of maps which we created specially for the project.


To Barcelona with Bottomline

We created an integrated mail-out campaign to promote Bottomline's stand at a trade show in Barcelona. Carefully crafted work with images and appetising typography put the focus on the local hospitality on offer.


Celebrating a decade at the R&RM

In Henley-on-Thames the River & Rowing Museum is celebrating its first ten years and we were asked to design a series of panels for a special anniversary exhibition. The theme is the power of museum collections to inspire us, with the public being asked to vote for their favourite objects. Our eye-catching designs are based on the rowers' blades in the museum's logo.


A century of the Wallabies at Twickenham

We designed a series of panels for a new client, the World Museum of Rugby at Twickenham. They capture the excitement of the Wallabies first ever tour in 1908, including some life size cut-outs that reveal that the rugby players of 100 years ago wouldn't match up to today's highly developed players.
