the business lunch is barcelona’s oldest and most established business networking event. it brings together members of the english-speaking business community in barcelona to foster a network of mutual business relationships and interest.
ishka was invited to document this monthly event in photographs, many of which you can see on the business lunch website.
beautiful, fairly-traded jewellery photographed for oxfam’s catalogues and advertisements. our studio shots were then also used in pre-christmas publicity, in-store displays and other promotional materials.
transitionculture.org is the personal blog of rob hopkins, one of the founders of the rapidly-spreading transition towns movement. his wordpress-powered blog was looking a bit dated so he asked us to completely redesign the entire site from the ground up. we developed several wordpress plugins to display the wide range of information on the site, and used open source software to improve the performance. around 1500 people visit the site daily, many of them getting involved & leaving comments.
our brief for this job was to make a plumber’s website that looked nothing like all the other plumbers’ websites! so we came up with a clean, fresh, spacious design which you can see at aqueco.co.uk. every page has a ‘snippet’ of info to show visitors the importance of saving water and co2, and how this can save them money. lumpy lemon also designed the logo to be used on all the business materials.
lumpy lemon has worked with crisis action since it was founded in 2005. we developed an initial website for them (crisisaction.org), then as their organisation grew, we developed this into a multi-lingual site. we also designed their annual reports. recently, we designed (at very short notice!) protectdrc.org which together with a national media campaign put pressure on the government to act in eastern congo.
this innovative chain of eco-shops commissioned lumpy lemon to design a range of promotional materials, including all the publicity for the launch of their new shops within garden centres. we also provided studio product photography for use on promotional materials, vouchers and website.
galeria brasil is a funky (and ethical!) brazilian gallery in east oxford. over five years we have created many promotional materials for them: advertisements, christmas cards, leaflets, invitations and postcards. we recently exhibited the first part of a long-term photography project “the magic of brasil”, based on the symbols and icons found in popular brazilian art.
an oxford-based landscape design practise, we designed and developed topio’s website (topio.co.uk) that uses our powerful content management system. this allows it to be easily expanded and updated without the need for a webmaster. in addition to this, we worked on the business stationery and provided design and print consultancy services.
