Barnwood’s mission is to ensure that no one feels isolated or alone by helping disabled people and people with mental health problems engage in their communities. They do this through their four key areas of focus – shaping homes, discovering opportunities, growing communities, sharing insights – and exploding myths around disability and mental health.
Barnwood are a catalyst for social change and it’s operations are often described as having a ‘ripple effect’ on the lives of individuals, their families and the community. What may start out as a simple conversation around a grant or idea usually transforms into something that benefits the wider community, often sparking other initiatives. And while it may be Barnwood that provides the initial funding and connections, it is the people, groups and communities themselves who create the focus, ideas and energy.
The new brand we created reflects this.
…a culmination of so much care, time and creativity that you ploughed into the brand work for Barnwood.
Thank you again, I feel very fortunate to have been along for some of that journey with you.
The Knowledge Quarter is a consortium of over 50 knowledge based institutions within a one mile radius of Kings Cross. Founded by the British Library and University of the Arts London we were commissioned by the British Library to produce a new logo, website, email template and launch materials.
The KQ website can be found at www.knowledgequarter.london.
Piers & Dominic have really helped the brand of the Knowledge Quarter come to life. I would highly recommend P&D as a small, yet efficient and smart agency that will work hard to meet a client’s brief.

Creative United is a Community Interest Company established to enable the growth and development of the UK’s cultural and creative industries. They do this by offering finance packages to creative companies, aspiring musicians and the art-buying public. It is supported by The National Lottery and Arts Council England.
Piers & Dominic were commissioned to rationalise and improve awareness of the product portfolio and reinforce each product’s relationship to Creative United. Specifically, the brief asked for postcard-sized pieces of communication as well as posters and pull-up banners.
First we designed a product portfolio for Creative United. Then we followed this up with separate campaigns for the individual products:
Take it Away – 0% finance for parents of young children or young adults/students aged between 18 and 25 wishing to buy musical instruments.
Own Art – participating galleries offer 0% finance for anyone wanting to buy art.
Creative Industry Finance – access to finance and business advice for creative businesses.
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.
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.
Family Lives, previously known as ParentlinePlus, has come along way since it started 15 years ago when it launched its free, 24-hour helpline to parents offering advice on everything from child birth to troubled teens. These days it has evolved to include online chat forums, personalised email support, face-to-face local support and a resource of printed and online advice targeted at immediate or extended family members. It had also grown out of their brand identity and Piers and Dominic were approached to look at the brand and its brand strategy.
Working with Piers & Dominic has been an absolute pleasure. They took our organisation through a consultation process on brand and had unanimity from trustees down to our users. We’re very proud of what we do so wouldn’t entrust our identity to anyone lightly, we’re delighted with how Piers & Dominic have represented us, and are looking forward to working with them again in the future.

The Millennium Villages Project is dedicated to lifting the poorest communities of Sub-Saharan Africa from sub-subsistence to self-sustaining commercial activity.
They needed to raise £2.5m to finish the work started in their most recent village project, Bonsaaso in rural Ghana.
P&D was asked to produce this case for support to help raise the necessary funds.
Barnet & Southgate College were building a new centre focussing on Learners with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities. With our extensive experience working on capital appeals, we were asked to design and produce a case for support to help raise funds to equip the new centre.
If you are a not-for-profit social enterprise charged with both encouraging individuals to walk and convincing corporate/community-based organisations of its social merits then it is imperative you ‘walk the walk’ as well as ‘talk the talk’.
We helped Walk England do just that by helping them find their voice with their three target audiences – consumer (walkers), corporate and community (local authorities, central government, schools, health professionals and environmental organisations). First, we re-articulated their offer in a straight-forward manner. Then we created a brand platform and a brand visual identity sophisticated enough to be able to resonate coherently with all their stakeholders.
