Deptford, SE8

16-07-2020

It’s good to be back after some time working remotely for the design team… there’s definitely change in the air with our working practice; more fluidity, more time working from home for the design/creative team, more flexibility with client liaison, etc. But the studio continues to be the best place for us to make things, and for the team to gather to discuss our creative trajectory, current projects, and future plans. And boy it’s good to be back.

Design for Diversity

DESIGN FOR DIVERSITY

THE PLEDGE

By placing the Design For Diversity sticker on our website, we undertake to uphold the following:

 

1/ Visibility

We pledge that our channels – our websites, blogs and social media – will at all times endeavour to include people of every colour and gender and sexuality.

 

2/ Opportunity

We pledge to seek out Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates to interview for roles that arise in our businesses. We will always hire the best person for the job, but we will endeavour to bring more diverse candidates through the process. We stop short of positive discrimination and we reject tokenism.

 

3/ Accessibility

We pledge that any events we hold – be they panel discussions or talks, dinners, receptions, or media events – will endeavour to include people of all colours and genders.

Inspiration Imagery

18-06-2020

GMS is inspired largely by nature, but also by all things light/shadow. We’re going to share more inspiration images through our instagram account in future, to share not just or own work but the philosophy of our creative studio.

This shot sees nature, shadow, structure and texture beautifully captured in this still life shot by @christiancoigny.

Hospitality Portfolio

29-05-2020

The spaces with which we surround ourselves can make the biggest difference to the state of our wellbeing.   The hospitality sector is charged with creating spaces that invigorate and inspire us.

We believe our work complements and enriches the spaces it sits in. We work with designers and architects to find the right system, material and finish to suit project schemes, creating artworks and finishes that incorporate richness, tactility, depth and allure. We have worked on a breadth of hospitality projects globally including restaurants, bars, hotels, yachts and airports.
