We kicked off 2018 working closely with retail design agency Brinkworth on the launch of Beatbox — a brand new bar at Boxpark Shoreditch that offers food and drink by day, and music by night.

The design brief put a heavy focus on soundproofing the unit in order to provide the best possible acoustics for music events. Sourcing materials traditionally found in recording studios, we produced the initial concept visuals before handing over to Brinkworth to work their magic. We then developed the brand identity, environmental graphics and neon signage that integrates within the space.

Beatbox is now open and serving coffee from Small Batch and pies from Pieminister, drop by for lunch and check out our latest project.

Junction 2 Festival

—Warming Up

Posted on: 07.02.2018

Continuing our relationship with LWE (London Warehouse Events), we were commissioned to create the visual identity for the 2018 Junction 2 Festival (watch this space).

As part of the build-up to the summer event, two warm-up parties are planned in Bristol and London that required a separate creative identity.

The brief was to avoid specific references to Boston Manor Park (Junction 2’s Location) and focus on the iconic Motion and Tobacco Dock venues. Our approach was to design an abstract composition using slices of photography, closely focusing on intriguing areas of each venue. 

To accompany this, we simplified the logo to a simple J2 marque and applied a flexible typographic layout for use across printed and digital campaigns.


2000 & Eighteen

— Filthy Threeway Display

Posted on: 04.01.2018

Towards the end of 2017 we worked on an internal studio project; a new typeface named Filthy Threeway Display, inspired by "The Brand With The Three Stripes" — Adidas.

Adidas is held in very high regard by the Filthy team, so designing a typeface that pays tribute to the iconic brand was a rewarding challenge, and we are very proud of the results.

We've also produced a limited run of screenprints celebrating the typeface; hand printed with Spot UV Ink on GF Smith Black Plike. 

We are passionate about custom typography and font design, so if you are interested in commissioning a bespoke typeface for you brand, we would love to hear from you:


2017 Logo Rejects

—The One's that got away

Posted on: 21.12.2017

We've been lucky enough to work on some great branding projects in 2017. From logo design to full brand identity, we have a passion at Filthy for creating, building and growing brands.

Once a project is confirmed, the design brief signed off, and the research stage complete, we will present 3—5 initial logo concepts. 1 or 2 concepts will be chosen, and across various rounds of feedback, collaboration and amendments the final logo is signed off and the next stage of the project commences. 

While that is great news for our clients, for us it can be bitter/sweet as we are left with a group of reject logos that we love. Hence this blog post, celebrating a handful of our favourite rejects from 2017 that in our opinion, deserve to see the light of day.

Boxpark Wembley

—A Different League

Posted on: 30.11.2017

We’ve busy developing the graphic language for Boxpark’s third site in Wembley. The biggest and most ambitious development for the brand yet, Boxpark Wembley will celebrate the very best in casual dining and sporting entertainment.

Working closely with renowned architects BDP, we’re designing a scheme that integrates the graphic communication within the architecture and expands the materiality of the brand itself — scaffold board is out, concrete is in, and shipping containers have been upgraded to larger standardised units.

The project continues to build on our longstanding relationship with Boxpark and we will be posting updates as the project progresses.
