A Wonderstuff 2015.

So, as the festive period rapidly approaches us and 2015 comes to a close, we reflect on another successful year for us, one that we’ll look back on with many fond memories. We have been privileged enough to work with a great range of ambitious clients on a variety of equally ambitious projects throughout the […]

Fitness made Personal

We were approached to create a new visual identity for a multidisciplinary fitness Centre located in Sandyford, Newcastle. Hamers wanted to differentiate itself from the numerous ‘convenience’ gyms now well established in Newcastle. We worked with them to develop a fresh approach to their identity, reflecting the one-to-one training they offer in the streamline ‘Fitness made Personal’. The […]

Pentagram. Five Points.

Thusday, 22 Oct 15, the Wonderstuff team attended the William Russell talk at the Northern Design Event at the Swan.

Never one to shy away […]

Your brand is a toilet

Oh yes it is. There are so many organisations out there that only consider their ‘front of house’ when they decide how they represent themselves. Restaurants and retailers are the ones we think of most with this clear break, but service based organisations are equally liable to do this too (with their marketing or products […]

S&S Haircare

We have recently completed the second phase of a long term project for new north-east based company S&S Haircare.

Galedin Veterinary

Galedin Veterinary is the product of the merger at the beginning of 2015 between two long-established veterinary practices, RentonSwan Vets and Merlin Veterinary Group.

The merger between RentonSwan Vets and Merlin Veterinary Group […]
