A few projects we love…

    A few projects we love…

    Rachy McKenzie - Senior Designer & IoIC National Awards Best Designer 2018 loves...
    A real fave is the environmental branding and design we created for Direct Line Group. We took their values and created beautiful, bold and fun graphics, which transformed the building across all four floors. The result is an engaging workplace that people love.
    Karl Jaques - Head of Design loves...
    This project had me at ‘comic-book super powers’. It was a licence to have fun and everyone at Twist really threw themselves into it, which clearly comes out in the photography and animation. A lovely way to celebrate skills in a fresh light.
    Louise Seastron - Senior Client Manager loves...
    When I pick up a copy of Purple, I know it’s going to be an emotional read. The heartfelt stories of the relationships between Anchor people and the residents they care for are so touching. I have so much respect for carers.

    What our clients say…

    Feedback on the town hall sessions has been excellent. And we’re developing a culture of ideas’ sharing.
    HR Business Partner

    The strategy campaign helps give people confidence in the future success of the company. 
    Senior Manager

    Our brief demanded bravery and fresh-thinking of Words&Pictures. They matched our ambition and raised
    the game.
    Head of Communication 

    It’s what we’re benchmarking all future campaigns against. It has fundamentally changed how our
    team is perceived by the business.
