It’s the taste

Our taste to be precise. That’s what you’re buying when you choose to work with Stuff & Nonsense. You’re buying our taste for exquisite typography, emotive colours, and website design layouts that look beautiful and work wonderfully on every size and type of screen. You’re buying a small creative team of experienced web designers in the UK who’ll work along-side you, or at our studio in North Wales, to deliver exceptional designs and content for your website or application and you’re buying a design process that’s been very successful in delivering effective websites on time and on budget.

We’ve helped UK household brand names, charities, government organisations and businesses, large and small, all from our studio in North Wales

Fabulously flexible website design

For seventeen years, household brand names, charities, government organisations and businesses, large and small, have trusted us to design their visual identities, websites and other digital applications.

We believe that the web’s a medium where creative design can help to communicate what’s special about a product or a service. Art direction and copywriting, combined with well-considered customer experiences that are backed by a clear creative strategy, creates loyal customers, regular readers and improved sales. That’s why—in addition to designing websites that are creative, effective, responsive and perform well on search engines—we help our clients by developing their visual identities and crafting their content.

Designing colour themes for WWF UK

We’re currently working on redesigning WWF UK’s adoption and donation pages. There are fourteen species for people to adopt and to help bring the design to life, we designed a palette of colours and tints for each species. We’ll use these in subtle ways across the redesigned pages.

Redrawing the Lock Stock self storage logo mark

Lock Stock self storage is a well-known and highly recognisable North Wales brand. Keeping this recognition in mind, we refreshed their logo mark by making its colours more natural and changing the typeface from Helvetica to Frutiger. Left: The previous version of their logo. Right: Our redrawn Lock Stock logo.

Full Fat Things biscuit logo mark

Everyone loves a good biscuit—that’s the British type, not the American—so when we decided on high calorie, no compromise, full fat ‘things’ for Full Fat Things, biscuits were the simple choice for their new logomark. We were inspired by classic ‘from the tin’ biscuit designs.

Website design for Honey

Honey are an award-winning branding agency whose clients include Tesco, Gatwick Airport and Harrods. They asked us to design their website and we delivered responsive website templates ready for integration by their developers.

Redrawing the Triple Science Support Program logo mark

For STEM Learning, we redrew their Triple Science Support Program logo mark according to branding style guidelines. Left: The previous version of their logo. Right: Our redrawn Triple Science Support Program logo mark.

New rules for STEM Learning logos

Over several years, the National STEM Centre and National Science Learning Network had commissioned seven logo designs. We brought those logos together as part of the STEM Learning family. We developed a set of rules for the use of colour and style and we designed a grid on which all re-imagined STEM Learning logos are now based. Left–right: The grid, STEM Learning, Triple Sciences Network.

Website design for Internazionale

Designing for editorial and news content is one of our favourite design challenges and we worked with our good friend Mark Porter of Mark Porter Associates to design the website for Italian magazine Internazionale.

Logo mark design for Bevan Rose

When corporate law practice Bevan Rose described the complexity of their work for their clients, we were reminded of the skill needed to produce fine detailed marquetry, so we experimented with a series of marquetry inspired logo marks for their new visual identity.

Full Fat Things coaster designs

Drupal developers Full Fat Things sponsored coffee stops at a major Drupal conference, so we designed two coasters and arranged letterpress printing for them. Our coaster designs included their biscuit logo and the tagline we developed for them; “All Drupal, no half measures.”

Website design for Dagens Næringsliv (DN)

Designing for editorial and news content is one of our favourite design challenges and we worked with our good friend Mark Porter of Mark Porter Associates to design the website for Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN.)

Website design for Houden Bags

Houden Bags curate and sell a collection of the best tech carry and accessories. They asked us to design a new visual identity and website templates for their company. We delivered branding assets plus static design visuals for key website pages.

Code Enigma’s logo mark tones

We decided to make Code Enigma’s logo mark from tones of a single colour, rather than use several colours as their previous mark had done. Giving them the ability to change colour made it possible to place their logo on different background colours and images.

Code Enigma’s logo mark colours

To maintain familiarity with Code Enigma’s previous logo mark, we reworked their colours and experimented with a dozen different combinations.

Logo design for Houden Bags

For our final logo design for Houden Bags, we paired the Azo Sans typeface by Rui Abreu with a motif that represents both stitching and a zip. We also designed stationery and website templates to integrate with their online store.

Houden Bags’ logo mark designs

We experimented with dozens of logo mark ideas before settling on one representing both stitching and zips on the bags that Houden Bags sell. The motif can be used in sizes ranging from tiny icons to the labels Houden attach to bags. (Download the brand guidelines we designed for them.)

Website design for Canopy Creations

Canopy Creations handcraft luxury tree houses, tree top adventures, playhouses and bespoke wooden structures. They asked us to design and develop a website to promote their business.
