Land Rover BAR - Ben Ainslie Racing
Working with Land Rover BAR was undoubtedly one of our proudest moments. In the run up the prestigious Americas Cup, Land Rover BAR asked us to up-cycle their old sales and advertising banners into pencil cases, wallets and make-up bags as gifts for sponsors and guests at their high-profile events. To be in keeping with their sustainability programme the use of 'new' materials were to be kept to a minimum. We designed and sourced the woven labels in accordance with their branding guidelines and produced the self-adhesive labels in-house.
Project 2 for Land Rover BAR was to up-cycle one of their old sails into 80 large shoppers 60 small shoppers, 150 pencil cases and 10 8ft cushions for a hospitality boat.
HPC required 48 A1 and 48 A2 posters from 11 different designs across 2 internal communication campaigns. We recommended a self-adhesive repositionable wall paper that can be instantly applied, it requires no mounting or framing and it can be easily removed for the next application.
RS Sailing are just one of the many organisations that have used our e-commerce website to make their own personalised range of products available to their members.

Experimenting with new material and processes is what we enjoy the most. This full colour printed canvas bag was designed and produced to add to The Old Salt Lofts’ bag collection. By combining photographic images and design elements this fun and exciting bag was created. We commissioned pieces of canvas to be printed in this full colour design before the bags were manufactured in our workshop. This versatile printing process opens us up to a whole world of opportunities particularly in the world of corporate branding.
