As designers we are drawn to architecture and landscape and the structures within. For NBS, we created a multi-faceted visual language which drew its inspiration from the ever-changing landscape and urban environment, in colour and graphics, but also with structures and format.

Presented with an existing range of flooring, we looked for a connection that would inspire others. The unintentional patterns created by buildings, scaffolding and pavements brought the product to life.
As we approach the most wonderful time of the year, we ask creative directors what gift someone should buy a designer for Christmas.
