This December POP officially turned 11-years old, launching the same year as the first iPhone, the year young people (questionably) wore scarves with T-shirts and the year Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II pipped Queen Victoria to become the oldest ever monarch.
Many things have changed since 2007, however, the one thing we are always grateful for is the trust and support of our clients and suppliers; so a sincere thank you, we hope to still be working together in another 11 years.
As Massimo Vignelli said: “If you do it right, it will last forever”.
In the constantly evolving, sometimes faddish world of design, we are proud of the fact that the work above are still looks great today, despite some of it being a decade old.
We attribute the longevity of our work to our thorough approach and our aim to create work that is timeless, especially when it comes to identity. As Massimo Vignelli said: “If you do it right, it will last forever”.
