We developed the name for the clothing range and created its distinctive visual and verbal language to stand out amongst its more established competitors. We also looked at how the brand could come to life across product, package and in-store experience, and helped develop the thoughtful product details such as itch proof materials and big zippers for little fingers.

Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun launches
Making the light that is for all of us into light that is for each of us, the wonderful Little Sun launched today at the Tate Modern. We are delighted to be a development partner for this project. Little Sun is a hugely ambitious work of art by leading artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen that will bring light to millions of people living off grid. Little Sun is a response to today’s global energy challenge. It is a beautiful solar-powered lamp that produces five hours of light from five hours of charging. Its light enables people off grid to study, share, cook and earn.
Thanks to everyone involved in making Little Sun happen.
