Our blog is where we share our design news and views.

And highlight stuff which has either caught our eye, or caused a kerfuffle in the studio this week.

  • What is working with Vincent Design like?

    The Tenterden Family Fun Trail arose from two initial ideas. Firstly, the Secretary of the Tenterden & District Local History Society had always had a wish to make the town’s history more accessible for children and families. Secondly, in 2021 the Tenterden Schools Trust had set up a Community Art Project across the town, featuring…

    Meet the Queen of all things Potato

    Why would a potato shop need a multi-coloured logo? And does locally-grown produce need a locally-grown designer? Writer Fiona Thompson finds out. What Nicki Crawley doesn’t know about Britain’s favourite carbohydrate isn’t worth knowing. Nicky’s official job title is ‘Queen of all things Potato’ at Morghew Park Estate in Tenterden. Morghew covers 1,900 acres of…

  • The trusty notepad

    I stumbled across a great article today which brilliantly raises one of my bug bares when I attend a meeting.

And so with that in mind; I thought we’d explain what we’re doing because you’ll undoubtedly be hearing more about it, and…

Even though obviously online you can…

  • 82 days to go (don’t sigh)

    It’s that time of year again. We are beginning to brainstorm ideas for the Vincent Design surprise Christmas mailer, which we send to all our lovely clients and close friends. In previous years we have produced a selection of delicious macarons (see above) made by our good friends Sylvia & Terry – Fine Chocolate makers. Another…

  • Signs of our Times

    On our travels we often come across weird and wonderful signs or “wayfinding systems”, which sometimes raise a smile. And most often the handmade low-fi ones prove to be the best.     The one below was recently found whilst visiting the new Olympic stadium in Stratford (we particularly liked the bold, simple use of…

  • Protecting Theatres

    A little shout out to one of our long-standing clients: Theatres Trust who hosted their annual conference on Tuesday 21 June 2016 at New Theatre London. If you’d like to know more about it please visit their website. They do amazing work every year within the planning area, particularly raising awareness through their Theatre at…
