Vibe TV was developed as the on-screen brand for the Barbican Centre. The concept piece demonstrates the style of programming that would be shown on the channel, and the style of branding for the channel's stings/bumpers. The Red Button menu provides access to previews of current and future performances being at the Barbican, and allows viewers to browse and purchase seats. Once the viewer completes purchase a barcode ticket is sent directly to their mobile, which would then be scanned at entry to the Barbican Centre.

This concept piece was developed as a promotional brand experience for the release of the Prada LG phone. The interactive Flash piece was designed to explain the function of the phone, but more importantly to make it a must-have for the fashionably elite. To reinforce this, and to direct it to the correct target audience, the work would be placed on CD and inserted into tear-open magazine adverts, which would be included in the top fashion magazines.

Fold TV is a concept channel designed to provide factual, balanced information on careers and further education to the youth market. The channel is targeted at teenagers nearing the end of their time in state education, as this is the primary group that feel a lack of guidance on future progression. As this age group is already heavily targeted to on television, the style of the branding was kept playful and tongue-in-cheek to make serious subjects less dry. Another aim of the channel was to make young people think about less typical careers or subjects they might consider boring - for example farming. These themes take the subject of stop-motion style bumpers and stings which maintain the humorous styling of the brand. As online social media is vitally important to this age group, the "firstname.lastname@example.org" bumper features questions and comments posted on the forums to encourage others to take part and see what people are talking about online.
