Photography, film and illustrationOur in-house team includes photographers, film-makers and illustrators. When a project’s style needs it, we’ll also commission and manage external talent. It’s an essential part of content for digital marketing, and, when it comes to brand articulation, can be the difference between ‘good’ and ‘great’.
As 2021 becomes the year of the staycation, we’re telling people about the exclusive getaway in unspoilt woodland that’s the antidote to the stresses of modern life. Straddling the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, fifteen miles due north of our Southwold studio, is the glorious Fritton Lake. Home to a two-mile long lake, beautiful wildlife...
CLIENT British Psychological Society
PROJECT Film: Video Review
Following the success of our first video for the British Psychologist Society, we worked together again to create a review of the achievements and efforts of the BPS in 2018, to be shown at their 2019 Annual Conference. Using bright bold text, synchronised animation and a series of bespoke graphics, we avoided the usual cliches...
CLIENT British Psychological Society
PROJECT Film: What have psychologists ever done for us?
Our first project for long-term client BPS was to make a creative, animated film celebrating the achievements and efforts of occupational psychologists. Using a ‘line and dot’ style, reminiscent of connecting neurons, combined with chalkboard-esque animations, we created a video which communicated some of the highlights of Occupational Psychologists’ input to society over the years...
You might find now that you’re becoming a dab hand at all sorts of things you’d normally commission. One of them may well be photography, so co-founder Simon (who, pre-Spring, owned London’s largest architectural photography studio) has shared his top five tips with you. Get skills, have fun! 1 Use your drone If you have...
Our friends at DanceEast are celebrating a decade at the Jerwood DanceHouse this year, and last Saturday there was a gala performance to mark the event. In readiness, Spring has partnered with them to create a gorgeous book. The book contains ten stories. The stories are those of people whose lives have been entwined with...
It’s shaping up to be a busy Autumn, and we’re keen to hear from creative freelancers. We’re building up a roster of talented freelancers who can support our studio with niche and extra skills. They include illustration, photography, film, editing, animation, development, design, writing. Maybe you have a folio full of something we didn’t know...
Ever wondered what Spring does? Here’s your answer. We have so many stories to tell, people to introduce you to, and ambitions for ourselves and our clients. Sometimes it’s hard to get it all into a small space. So here is a very brief overview of what we do, for whom.
CLIENT The Hog Hotel
PROJECT Brand: Dave the Hedgehog becomes hotel icon
We knew that we would need to include a hedgehog as part of the typeface – it could not be a type and supporting icon identity. So to create something truly unique we put pen to paper to develop the illustration style. Taking the ‘O’ of a bold sans serif font enabled us to illustrate...

Unruly Pig is rising up the charts… we heard today that Creative Circle’s Gold Jury has now elevated our illustration from ‘nominated’ to ‘shortlist’. So we know that our punk pig has won something… will it be bronze, silver or gold? All will be revealed at the Circle Ball on the 28th April. Good luck,...
Great news for all fans of the Unruly Pig! Spring’s punkish illustration for ex corporate lawyer Brendan Padfield’s gastro pub, favourite of critics and foodies alike and arisen, phoenix-like, from its early days fire, has been nominated for a Creative Circle ‘craft’ award by some of Britain’s finest design minds. Trotters crossed for a win!
Anyone can come up with a logo: what makes the difference between basic and brilliant is the craft. Craft in thinking and craft in execution. For any agency, a branding job where the client’s passion for their business can be articulated through the agency’s work is always a joy. And the Unruly Pig in Bromeswell...
