We were commissioned to design and produce this volume of gold and silver Islamic currency – a sample from over 20,000 coins called The Great Dynasties Collection. The book explores the richness and diversity of coinage in the Muslim world including rare and much coveted items from Spain and north Africa to central and south east Asia.
Additionally, we were asked to create a website to exploit the macro coin photography used in the book. This site displays the coins in unprecedented detail never seen before in the numismatic world and can be viewed here.
Coin imagery is by specialist antiquities photographer, Stephen Wakeham.

Piers & Dominic were commissioned to review the existing brand, review the brand hierarchy, reposition Wellcome Collection and develop a brand visual identity toolkit. Our mission was two-fold – to create tools sophisticated enough to satisfy the diverse needs of the services while improving the awareness of the full offer in the minds of the audience.
The examples shown are the first fruits of the repositioning project where the design team at Wellcome Trust have started to apply the new brand visual identity elements. These include; the first event brochure for Pain; two banners advertising two different offers; building map; What’s on guide; Youth Programme brochure. We will add more as and when they become available.
P&D were brought in on a consultancy basis to develop the brand visual toolkit. The examples shown here are created using the brand toolkit elements and have been produced by the talented in-house team at Wellcome Trust. Special thanks to thanks to Marianne Dear, Nicola Schwander and Paulo Estriga.
London Screen Study has two roles. One, an archive of amateur and professional films about everything London compiled by Ian Christie and Angela English at Birkbeck College which is used to promote public awareness of and research into London’s screen history. The second is to run film programmes and seasons, and organise educational events and courses, related to London and its screen history
The National Army Museum (NAM) was coming to the end of a huge redevelopment programme. Having secured most of the funding already, there was one final push needed to raise £1m to complete the project.
Our extensive capital appeal experience meant we were perfectly placed to help with the design and production of the case for support.
This year also saw NAM celebrating their 45th birthday and we were asked to design the gala evening invite and auction catalogue.
A regular piece of print for NAM is their bi-annual events’ brochure and we designed their spring/summer edition.
Sue Ollemans is a dealer specialising in oriental works of art and, in particular, antique jewellery.
After seeing our work for The Great Dynasties, she commissioned us to produce a catalogue for New York’s Asia Week where she was exhibiting.
The brief for her “unwearable jewellery” was to play with the scale to lend it an almost sculptural quality.
