Varnom Ross is a London-based specialist recruitment agency carefully pairing property professionals with private and public sector clients operating throughout the UK. Their specialism emerges from a single-minded focus on searching for and discovering the perfect synergy between individual character and collective corporate culture, professional skill set and task. This is achieved through personal conversation rather than the impersonal algorithmic governance that characterises many of today’s recruitment firms. Varnom Ross worked with Bibliothèque to express this positioning through a distinct graphic identity of contrasts, graphic immediacy and personability across print (gifts, coffee cups, ink stamps, business cards and printed communications) and screen (website and social media posts).

David Collins Studio is an award-winning interior architecture practice working with brands, businesses and private clients who share their passion for detail, craft and refinement. These include Harrods, Nobu Berkeley, The Connaught Bar and those working within the hospitality, residential and retail sectors.
The studio’s work is described as being iconic, timeless and having a dramatic glamour rooted in a methodology that begins with an idea (this could be lateral and oblique to begin with) which then evolves into a palette of materials, colours and moods, often transforming the familiar into the exotic. This is expressed in the collaborative actions of Bibliothèque Design (brand identity) and Future Corp (digital art direction) to redesign graphic identity and website. This features a subtle intersection of typographic form (custom typeface), material and finish (stationery and business cards) and viewpoints (website).
