The Bouncepad Original range of products was the initial product family launched, and is still the most adaptable tablet enclosure system in the world.
The system turns consumer tablets, like the iPad, into digital touch-point kiosks, through a range of secure products that were initially designed for the retail market.
It is a modular system that makes switching tablet, adding peripherals, or even changing mounting options as simple as possible.
Desk, Wall and Floor mounted options were designed with a wide range of viewing angles to create the most ergonomic experience possible.
The Bouncepad Static 60° iPad kiosk is perfect for displaying content at a distance or on raised platforms. Acting as a powerful focal point, bright and interactive content will easily attract passers-by in retail settings.
This secure tablet and iPad wall mount is a subtly engaging solution for vertical displays and walls. The Bouncepad Wallmount is a low profile option for walls, protruding just enough to say “play with me”.
The Bouncepad Floorstanding is the ultimate portable iPad and tablet kiosk stand for exhibitions, events and retail environments. Its solid base lets you display your tablet cable-free for an elegant standalone display, without the need for furniture.
The Bouncepad Desk tablet and iPad kiosk is designed to lie low on the surface, giving the tablet a seamless finish while displaying content at an angle that provides easy interaction for users.
The Bouncepad Desk was born out customer requests to have something clean, compact and beautiful.
The flat VESA display allows businesses to mount the Bouncepad flush to the wall, or fix to a standard VESA mounting arm. A simple, elegant solution that allows brands to achieve a flat iPad display, perfect for seamless digital signage and environment control applications.
A complimentary range of extras was designed for the Original range, building as part of the modular system. The functionality of the extras ranged from adding branding and customization to the products, to adding the capability to read credit cards or listen to audio using headphones. Each extra added further features to the product range, which in turn expanded the use cases we could help solve.
Extras include some of the following: External Audio Port, Reinforced Lightning Cable, Branding Options and Magnetic Stripe Card Reader Access.
Growing the product range organically often meant that new products started life as custom project requests. New industry use-cases allowed us to feel out demand in the market before committing to launching products in full.
We completed some incredible custom projects including an augmented reality solution for the London Eye, one of London’s busiest tourist attractions, and an augmented reality bicycle tour of the Olympic Park that resided on top of Anish Kapoor’s ArcelorMittal Orbit.
We also helped create a custom card reader solution for a startup whose mission was to transform the bar experience through self service beer taps and table service, and now operates in over 20 countries.
Sayulita was born out of the desire to create a high end, organic-feeling coat stand that mirrored elements of nature.
We took inspiration directly from the flora world and began to develop concepts that echoed the form of a flower blooming, with the petals or stems acting as the hooks.
Eight perfectly formed stems concertina together to form a circular shape that flowers at the top to create the perfect stand.
We worked with a local steambending manufacturer to develop and refine the design, and we worked tirelessly to get the product down to a viable market price.

Slip was an extension of an exploration into the use of ceramics, more specifically bone china in the lighting industry.
After spending time researching existing uses of ceramics in the lighting industry we found there were very few examples of experimentation and unique modern designs.
The final product is produced in the World Capital of Ceramics: Stoke on Trent, England, celebrating English Heritage and the nation’s pottery industry. The pendants are slip cast, fired and coated in a clear glaze. They feature golden twisted three-core cords and brass detail at the top of the shade.

During an internship working for Chris Raia Industrial Design in Somerville, MA, the design team worked with Boston Warehouse to create a new line of kitchen utensils themed around various whimsical animal characters. The products were sold nationwide by retailers such as Target and Amazon and were featured in the Oprah Magazine.
The objective was to produce a modern and sophisticated design with high-end finishes while maintaining a lighthearted approach to the designs. It was important that each product told a story about the animal, and the way the utensil functioned became intertwined with the shape of the animal or how it moved in real life. This brought a natural familiarity and light-heartedness to each design that made the products attractive and comforting.
The Animalhouse range was then developed with manufacturers in China and was finished and branded in co-operation with Philips Design.
The products were manufactured using injection molding, and some incorporated soft grip pads that improve the usability of each utensil. Chrome details were then used for some of the utensil’s functioning parts.

A range of children's furniture, designed for Barton Furniture, one of the last remaining contract furniture and upholstery companies left in the once booming town of Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, England.
We decided to pursue a bentwood design with bold colors and a range of different shapes. We wanted to inspire and challenge children in their environment, and also give schools options when it came to their furniture. The seat shell was bent laminated plywood along with a bentwood ‘U’ shape leg design. Classic mortise and tenor joints were used for added strength.
The curved and asymmetrical shapes offer more aesthetic and textural stimulation for children. The variety of each design represents the diversity in our classrooms today and encourages children to embrace this concept.
The product range is now being sold as part of Barton Furniture’s core range.
Boo combine three different seating positions in one, allowing the user to completely reconfigure their room setting from dining to lounge and vice versa. This space-saving design comes with a detachable magnetic seating cushion and is supplied as a flat pack design.
It is made from a combination of bentwood and solid wood bamboo, and the upholstery is made from 100% organic wool.
After achieving a rapid amount of growth, our third office move in 18 months was an important one. We wanted to create a space that truly reflected the Bouncepad design heritage and company culture. We wanted a space that was bright, light and open, with lots of color, texture and lots of spaces to collaborate.
The entire project was managed by myself including entire design layout and planning, furniture and lighting procurement, vendor management and staging.
Seattle Bar & Restaurant is part of a top hotel based in the Marina area of Brighton, England. The bar wanted to bring their cocktail menu to life, and were keen to tell the story of each drink, to educate customers of the origins of drinks and their spirits, liqueurs and bitters.
Utilizing a prohibition themed visual language blended in with simple line based illustrations we created a stunning booklet that was a huge hit with the hotel’s customers and locals too.
Tracy Byrne Group is a London based health group consisting of a consulting arm, podiatry services, and a complimentary health clinic. All four businesses required individual identities while maintaining their relationship with the parent group.
The company was keen to implement nature based illustrations in the logos, and we settled on natural pastel colors, which all came together on the group identity. Along with the visual identity, they required a full stationery set, and exterior signage designing for the clinic.
Foosball UK is a startup in the North West of England, aiming to be the biggest provider of foosball tables to pubs and bars in the country. At the time, they were keen to build a foosball playing culture in the UK, through their distribution of tables and creating a community by hosting tournaments and events across the country.
Foosball UK required a complete brand development, visual identity, stationery and advertising collateral. We went for a retro visual identity, which mirrored the classic graphics of the 70s Soccer World Cup and Olympic events.
