Mulberry
Construct continue to work extensively for British design company Mulberry. Over the last 12 months, Construct has refined the original Mulberry logotype and the famous tree motif. This newly updated design has been applied across an extensive variety of applications including components that feature on all products, shop signage (in collaboration with Universal Design Studio), business stationery, a multitude of seasonal items and – most challenging of all – a huge gold inflatable Bayswater bag balloon.

Mulberry 40th Birthday
For Mulberry’s 40th anniversary, Construct produced a celebratory book charting the growth of one of Britain’s most cherished luxury brands from its beginnings as a West Country-based lifestyle label to a globally recognised high-fashion label. Photographer Venetia Dearden spent two years capturing beautiful, everyday moments in the lives of the people that built and continue tom build the brand. Each book is packaged in a pass-the-parcel style gift wrap, each layer revealing a new and different phrase that encapsulates the brands personality. Construct were heavily involved in producing various promotional materials to support the book’s launch, from sticker sheets and ribbons, to postcards and cake slice boxes.

Jacqueline Cullen
Designer, Jacqueline Cullen has developed innovative processes and formats that celebrate rather than disguise the inherent flaws and inclusions of Whitby jet (a black-as-night fossil of prehistoric trees). Construct crafted the identity and produced a toolkit comprising a variety of stamps (wax, embossing and ink) to reflect Jacqueline’s work.

Carolina Bucci
Carolina Bucci creates modern and vibrant fine jewelry that echos her family’s rich heritage. Construct created a hand drawn logotype using watercolour paint that is a sentimental and nostalgic reference to Mediterranean holidays of the later 20th Century. A mixed palette of cool blues evokes sea and sky, long summers spent idling with loved ones on beautiful yachts and aperitifs on the terraces of harbourside restaurants.

With images by French Photographer Fred Pinet, Construct art directed and produced an oversized lookbook showcasing Carolina’s jewelry. Carrier bags and boxes are currently in development.
