Carnaby rises again

Brand refresh

In 2014, we redefined Carnaby, sending a strong message to the global retail sector: Carnaby is the place to be if you’re a brand worth talking about.

The epicentre of the swinging sixties, Carnaby had turned stale. Disparate sub-brands lacked clarity and confidence. Shaftesbury, owners of the Carnaby Estate, wanted to reclaim its relevance and attract leading retail and F&B names to the area.

We placed Carnaby and its incredible heritage in a modern context. Impactful and absolutely current, our new identity and communications strategy for business customers was expanded to underpin Carnaby’s consumer communications – giving much-needed consistency across the brand family.

Today, Carnaby is once again an iconic London destination, bustling with shoppers, world-leading fashion brands, and a vibrant eating and drinking scene.

Commercially effective design.
