Kingdom & Sparrow brings old school back to new
Unlocking Potential client, Kingdom & Sparrow, brings new creativity back to Falmouth’s old School of Art.
Global branding agency Kingdom & Sparrow have moved to Falmouth’s original School of Art building. In 1902 the School of Art offered classes in the likes of freehand drawing, printing and still-life painting, playing a key part in the beginnings of Falmouth University and the town’s rich creative culture. Nowadays this 10-strong team are giving it a new lease of life, merging traditional art techniques with modern design to craft food & drink brands worldwide.
Founded in 2012, Kingdom & Sparrow has grown to become one of the largest branding agencies in Cornwall – and 2019 has been their biggest year yet. As well as moving into the new studio they’ve taken on four full-time staff and have completed one of their most high profile projects to date, a re-brand for Young’s beer.
Creative Director Johnny Paton said:
“When the opportunity came up for us to move into the old School of Art building, we jumped at the chance. We’d outgrown our old studio and were launching a new department in creative content so space for a photography studio was paramount.”
Earlier this month they celebrated the move and a successful 7th year with a party for their team, clients and friends. The School of Art theme extended to branded invitations and beers, each with a hand-painted touch to make them fully original.
Reflecting on his experience with Unlocking Potential, Johnny said:
