News: Kingdom & Sparrow bring craftsmanship back to Falmouth’s original 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 4 new full-time staff members and have completed one of their most high profile projects to date, a rebrand for Young’s beer.
“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.” says Creative Director Johnny Paton.
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.
