In addition to our love for design for print which encompasses vintage letterpress, large format digital, litho, flexo and silkscreen, we also work with a broader set of mediums that sees us go beyond traditional paper and ink to challenge the role of graphic design within the public realm.

Over the years United Creatives have produced public art-based graphic design projects that have incorporated graphic compressed concrete, kiln-fired vitreous enamel, carved typography in brass, slate and sustainable timber, graffiti rendered on listed buildings, narratives in cast iron and laser-cut, illustrated corten steel.

Our design approach has been greatly influenced by the early grounding in Dutch design of our Creative Director Chris Edmunds with an approach that is very much non-compartmentalised when compared to the English model. The translation of the English word 'designer' into the Dutch is 'vormgever', which literally means 'giver of form', a term not assigned to one given medium.

  • “The new menu for the Club at The Ivy is absolutely stunning - a great example of how a sleuth of different ideas while connecting the dots come together in perfect execution. The illustrations and design are well associated to the period of the building and are nicely topped off with the rich detail.
