Mystery, intrigue and discovery form the foundations for so many design concepts. Inspired by exploration and challenged perceptions with a sprinkling of satire.  

Why would you adorn the walls of a dark, eerie basement space with tactile, whimsical wallpaper inspired by an entanglement of secret garden hose pipes.... Then again, why wouldn't you?

The mid point in a project. Dust casting a veil over every surface, plaster encrusted on your favourite old trainers and energy levels flagging. Like any half way juncture in a momentous endeavour - although it may involve a little imagination and a push of the pause button - clutching a window to breath it all in, reflect on the evolution and bask in the glory of what's soon to unfold, well, it's a precious, fleeting moment.

A decade, ten years, 315 360 000 seconds and a cornucopia of colourful adventures, magnificently inspiratonal introductions, Champagne popping lightbulb moments - each with a bright tale of their own effervescence - and more stationary malfuncions than you could shake a Sharpie at. Our brand has blossomed and evolved, aquainting itself with a host of diverse industries and  exceptional individuals. Now, at the first gas station on the highway to wherever the world of contemporary design and creative expression takes us, we are perusing the muticolour carnival of colour on the shelves and filling our glove box with rhubarb and custards, pink shrimps, salted caramel dark chocolate everything, and the finest bottled water to ever be branded as Scottish. 

Edging ever closer to a decade behind the wheel of our zero gravity, intricately hand stitched, E-Type inspired mode of transport, the most valuable lesson learned has been the joy found in diversity and discovery. Embracing the innovative and the timeless, transforming challenges into skills most familiar, and staying true to our values as we go. 

At this juncture, it struck as the perfect time to refurbish our exterior and inject our engines with all the newfangled nuggets of goodness required for the next leg, via a plethora of magnificent ports along the way. It is, therefore, with exceptional excitement, and technical wizardry in abundance in the hands of our skilled web developers, we are delighted to unveil our shiny new website. 

Coming very soon will be the addition of the Iona Crawford Atelier aspect of our website where industry clients, brand partners and inquisitive souls alike can explore our project portfolio and find out more about the many diverse aspects of our design consultancy.

In the meantime, hop behind the controls and take our baby for a spin. We'd love to hear what you think.
