June round up

KPing it real


If you have been looking out on Twitter you may have noticed that we are now working with KP Snacks alongside Tetris. We have been tasked with creating visual themes and implementing the KP Snacks brand throughout their new Slough office.

Our first presentation went down a treat and the team are looking forward to getting stuck into the next stage. As you can see from the photo, our request for some “research” samples was granted in spectacular style!

Design Week Top 100



We are delighted to announce that we made it into the Design Week Top 100! TTP have slotted in at a solid 82 and couldn’t be happier. We’re all going to raise a glass and pat ourselves on the back at some point this week, but first we must finish all of that award winning work!

Getting Bizzie with Lizzie

This month has seen the arrival of designer Lizzie. Lizzie studied 3D: Product and Furniture Design BA (Hons) at Northumbria University. Lizzie continued her studies here for an extra year and completed a Masters degree in Multidisciplinary Design Innovation (MA), before moving to New York to study Graphic Design at Shillington College.

Lizzie’s diverse background allows her to push the boundaries whilst still being realistic about what is possible. Fun Fact! Her greatest achievement to date is completing a rubik’s cube in under three minutes!

Not content with one new member to the TTP family, we’re also on the look out for another! We’re looking for a Senior Account Manager with a flair for interiors, branding and digital. They’ll be heading up our Account Management team (they really are a lovely bunch) and working on a real mix of projects. If you think you might know someone who could fit the bill then they can find out a little more here.

Crystal What?


Immersive events seem to be the flavour of the month at the moment, and in a Power-To-The-People extravaganza the Crystal Maze has reached its crowd funding goal of £500,000. Personally we can’t wait to step into the Aztek zone and leave Simon in jail because we can’t spare a crystal!

If you’d rather kick back and enjoy the experience instead of scrabbling for crystals, then Secret Cinema offers an interactive cinema experience ranging from Star Wars to The Grand Budapest Hotel.

There is also the elusive and super secret You Me Bum Bum Train, where individual passengers are catapulted into unimaginable situations. Sadly tickets sold out in two seconds flat, but you can still be a part of the experience by volunteering here! Or if you fancy an outdoors sing-a-long then you could always hit up Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in Regents Park… And for those who are after a more general guide, Eventbrite have just created a what to do in London this July Calendar!

No pen required!

Our wacom advocate Sarah has taken a shine to the most recent Adobe product. Continuing the recent family of Adobe tablet apps aimed at designers and artworkers is the latest release; Adobe Comp.

Adobe market Comp CC as ‘Real Layouts, Real Fast’, so you can ‘Design ideas on your iPad as smoothly and easily as drawing on paper.’ There’s a range of features built in to help you achieve your layout dreams. Intuitive drawing takes your fingertip gestures and builds them into solid shapes. Font libraries are provided courtesy of Typekit, and the app even has share capabilities so you can collaborate with colleagues before exporting to InDesign or Illustrator

Sounds promising so far.. but is it any good?

In the same way buying a digital camera doesn’t make you an instant photographer, using Comp CC won’t transform you into a fully fledged graphic designer. It won’t replace your sketchbook, or design for you. It merely acts as a bridge between drawing and desktop publishing.

More than a fad, after giving it a week long test, Adobe Comp CC is here to stay, in my life at least. It’s a great tool to streamline my time especially out the office, maximising those empty hours wasted commuting. No longer will I read tales of Jeremy Clarkson in the Metro. Now I can digitise my sketches, all from my fingertips… no pen required!
