more and more, as seen in the Teal Tease blog.”

Strong visual content
is key to a successful marketing campaign. Whilst working with an international
engineering company our art directors were challenged to take a piece of highly
engineered product and visually illustrate the beauty of the product design.

studio photography and the CGI animation tied in with the client’s brand
identity. The brief was very open which
our Art Directors relished! The combined
result has given the company both video and image content for in house publications,

Statement islands will feature heavily in 2017, this is supported by
worktop technologies and the wide array of new worktop finishes entering
the market. Mixing is the name of the game: texture, thickness, height
and colour - anything goes. Open storage features are also a must in
your island design, stretch your creativity but keep it practical.
Use product creatively
A split level island is a clever way to reduce the appearance of bulk
without reducing worktop space. It’s also a nice way of softening the
transition from kitchen to a dining/living space.
Get creative with lighting and give your island that flouting feeling,
here we’ve paired it with a universal sliding doors system that adds
real drama as well as creative display.
Mixing Worktop textures create a real statement contrasting not only
finishes but thinness too, complimenting display features and
splashbacks both play a big part in this look.
Make a feature with contrasting kitchen fascias, you need to be bold to
make a statement it’s not the time to play safe…sometime more is more!
