Starbeck Community Library We love books so naturally we love libraries. One close to us recently became a community library run by local volunteers. We designed and developed an identity scheme that helped people reconnect with this important local facility.

GatenbySanderson We’ve been working closely with this national recruitment company for many years and are constantly finding ways to help improve their brand and effectively communicate their offering. We recently produced a new range of exciting literature which communicated new services within the company.

Diamond Dispersions This poster was part of an ongoing campaign aimed at getting customers talking at industry events. The literature is built on the fact that they’re known all over the world, asking them how many famous global landmarks they could recognise.

About us
Before Caslon & Co. Mark and Pete worked together for 8 years. Mark is the do-er in chief. If anything needs sorting, he’s the man. An artworker, project manager, retoucher, technical sorter-outer and a craftsman, you could say he’s 3 members of staff in one.

Pete’s the creative one, an authority in design, his knowledge of agencies, projects and design history is encyclopaedic. He has lectured in universities on both sides of the border, and has sat on many design judging panels.

Both have held senior roles in some of the countries most respected design companies in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Yorkshire.

Awards
We’re modest about it, but we’ve notched up a pretty impressive haul of awards over the years. The latest count was over 50 national and international awards including D&AD and the Grand Award for Creativity at The New York Festivals. Our work has been featured in a variety of publications and has been discussed on Radio Four, ITV and Channel Four.

How we work
Caslon & Co. are a small company whose aim is to come up with clever and engaging solutions to clients problems. We think of ourselves as communicators not decorators. Design for design’s sake does not concern us but making a difference does.

We form close working relationships with clients, and we also believe in collaboration, calling on our network of specialists like planners, web developers and writers.

From small company logos to large national brand guidelines, every project we undertake is treated individually and given the same care and attention. We obsess about everything to make sure all our work is not just good but great.

We listen, solve, create, then deliver. It’s all about ideas, big ideas, we combine intuitive thinking with a passion for craftmanship, whilst making sure evey job comes in on time and on budget.
