We love talking shop, and believe the best work always starts with just that. Open, honest, enthusiastic and passionate conversations about the thing that interests you the most. If you’d like to kick off a conversation, we’d love to hear from you.
ShopTalk London started with a pub conversation after work. One of hundreds of conversations where we found ourselves talking shop.
Those conversations have taken us on some amazing adventures, from part-owning a pub in Mayfair to the international terminal at SFO, to wearing hard hats planning exciting new start-up projects.
We love the entrepreneurial spirit and surround ourselves with people who have it in abundance. Whether you’re a start-up, a challenger or an industry giant looking to spark a change, we’d love to start a conversation. Let’s talk.
James & Paul
When internationally renowned interior-design house Studio Duggan decided to launch exclusive homeware brand Trove, and approached us about defining the brand & visual identity for this new venture – it was a no-brainer. Playing off Studio Duggan’s creativity and inspiration we wove together an entire brand story for Trove, creating a layered and intriguing space that incorporates the physical and digital, taking people on a journey through a mystical world that celebrates the brand at every twist and turn. You can see the visual expression of some of this work on their e-commerce website, designed and built by ShopTalk.
“We are thrilled that we were lucky enough to be recommended to Shoptalk for our new venture, TROVE. We have found in them a true partner - who have taken the time to understand our vision and translate it into a tangible brand. Paul and James are knowledgable, proactive, enthusiastic, creative and above all...just so lovely to deal with. We couldn’t be happier with the world of TROVE that they have created for us - it has surpassed every expectation”Tiffany Duggan, Founder
We worked alongside illustrator Tatiana De Nicolay to create a beautiful series of illustrations to signpost people’s interaction and journey with Trove, including a leopard to represent permanence and timelessness, a serpent to protect the key to the world of Trove, a hot-air balloon to transport precious cargo, and eyes to convey honesty and transparency.
The ornate illustrations and symbols, alongside a bespoke serif font, have been devised to work across all brand touchpoints, from instore and online signposting, right through to the boxes, ribbons, bags and tags. The rich and elegant ambiance sets Trove apart from its more ubiquitous pared-back peers.
Launched in October 2019, Trove provides a furniture range with bespoke, vintage and carefully sourced treasures available online and at the brand’s West London flagship boutique – has been created by Studio Duggan as a true expression of its aesthetic.
