Our love for all things naval

Our first studio was in Greenwich, therefore inspiration came naturally from this location’s maritime heritage. We love the language of naval flags, they communicate in a colourful and distinct way. What better inspiration for a creative agency that does the same for it’s clients.

Our process

01 / Set the brief

Before we do anything we’ll come and meet you. We’ll then ask for a written brief (we’re quite strict about this bit).
 
At this point we’ll also mention anything we’ve experienced in the past that might make your project even more of a success. Once you’re happy we’ll agree timelines, deliverables and costs, and then get on it.

 

02 / Find a fresh answer

The process of researching, questioning and coming in with a fresh perspective has been the key to our success over the years.
 
Once we’ve agreed the right strategic route for you, we’ll get to work on the creative direction. This could be delivering a variety of possible ideas, or building up one concrete solution.

 

03 / Deliver the goods

Once we have a creative direction agreed, we’ll start our detailed design process. This is when things really start coming together.
 
We’ll create all assets needed for print, development or installation. We’ll also hand over all the master files, artwork and style guides. Then after a set time we’ll look at the execution and the results to see how, together, we can build on the success…

Partnernship

If there’s one thing we believe in strongly here at Confederation Studio it’s working as a team – and that means everyone from creatives to clients. Our designers work directly with you, and we avoid complex layers that slow down the flow of information. Smarter relationships and braver work are created this way.

About us

Nahim launched Confederation Studio in 2012, on the back of 15 years’ experience in some of the world’s biggest and best branding agencies like The Brand Union, Interbrand and Figtree. Branding projects for Skype, HTC, Plan International, Novo Nordisk and Toyota being some of the highlights.

He started Confederation as an open-hearted studio where brands can work directly with creatives as one close-knit team. And where brave brand work can be developed and delivered (it’s surprising how many agencies do only one or the other well). Confederation Studio is also for people who believe in design as a force for good, and a feature of the studio is its work for social enterprises.

Over the past four years, Confederation has grown into a fully integrated studio with specialists in branding, art direction, web design and development, design for print, photography and animation – and all without the big-agency price tag. We’ve also got illustrators, copywriters, model makers and other experts in our Confederation family.
