our approach

Design for the real world

Calverts is a communication design co-operative. We create and deliver visual identities, complete publications, individual pages and integrated campaigns using the right combination of media to reach any audience.

 

The Calverts design team is ideas-driven, attentive, expert and professional. Our clients are not buying a Calverts house style; they're tapping a flexible resource of fresh thinking, experience, creativity and project management know-how to deliver their print, digital or display communications on brand, on time and on budget.

 

We believe designing for today’s world means coming up with solutions that are not just beautiful and engaging, but also careful about people and mindful of resources. We work with our clients to deliver print and digital communications that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable. No wasted words, resources or effort; in other words, design following the principle that 'less can be more'.

Supported by University College London, The Food Junctions Cookbook project explores the complex relationships between food, human society and nature. Some 70 contributors share their ‘living recipes’ for things to cook, things to think about and above all things to do. It mixes practice, politics and pleasure and ties people together through a common interest in food.

 

The book takes the word recipe both literally and metaphorically, combining insights and inspirational stories from all round the world; how to taste wine, open up a catering co-op, deal with food waste, prevent childhood obesity, make delicious dishes from wild plants and grow food in the city.

The book was produced on our Heidelberg 5-colour B2 litho press using 120gsm Cocoon Offset for the inner pages, and 280gsm Revive 100 Uncoated for the cover (both premium 100% recycled white uncoated, FSC certified) with Bio vegetable oil based inks, under Calverts ISO14001 Environmental Management System.
