Client: Greenwich Peninsula. Agency: Droga5. Year: 2019. Role: Creative Direction. Designer: Steph McArdle, Christian Sexty.
We developed the name, brand identity and launch campaign for London’s first cultural riverside ‘linear park’ on Greenwich Peninsula: The Tide. We wanted to encourage novelty-seeking Londoners to explore the pathway and its surroundings. The launch was based around promoting Turning Tides Festival — an event showcasing the types of experiences people will come to associate with The Tide.

Coal Drops Yard represents a new type of experience-led shopping. The visual identity and launch campaign are designed to showcase a variety of experiences — both commercial and non-commercial. The site itself has retained the arches from its original use as Victorian London’s coal store. The identity uses these shapes to literally frame or house everything you can find there — retailers, history, culture, community, spaces and even the people who built it. And as the space itself encourages serendipitous ‘real world’ social collisions, the design is ever-changing, always unexpected.

‘Another Way’ is looking at the car from an unexpected perspective — one that includes the context of the driver.
We seek that connection,
Touch the glowing screen
Tell us which direction,
Ask the ghost in the machine

A playful identity that’s inspired by all the ingredients of a successful kitchen —equipment, ingredients, and creative energy — all coming together.
“Meritocrazy describes itself as “even worse than Monopoly!” and mad as it may seem, it might even be better. Worth looking up if only to give you a better chance to examine every quip and complaint concealed behind the neon type on the box.”
