Simplify Branding have created an animation for National Grid’s annual general meeting. The brief was to visually communicate National Grid’s work and achievements throughout the year as well as showing how that contributed to the energy trilemma. The 3 minute animation uses a landscape to take the viewer on a journey and explain key investments and achievements. There is no sound/narration as this was designed as an eye candy piece rather than a video presentation.
If you would like to see the animation you can view it here.

Smash Nutrition is launching a range of high protein drink powder products made with a unique range of innovative ingredients – including cricket flour. The powder also contains a range of other natural protein sources including soy, buckwheat, casein and egg white.
CEO of Smash Nutrition, Robert Bordi comments:
“Smash Nutrition was borne out of personal frustration. When I’m training hard and trying to satisfy my protein requirements, it’s hard to avoid red meat. But the alternatives – other than pure whey – contained highly dubious additional ingredients. That led me to a new and superior protein source, cricket flour, which is far higher in protein than steak.”
Robert approached us to create an identity for his innovative product, having previously worked with us. The identity needed to be iconic and innovative to represent his vision for the brand. We are currently working on a website and packaging which will be launching soon.

Safety is of the utmost importance to National Grid. As part of their on-going commitment to Process Safety a survey of employees in operational areas was conducted. This highlighted a number of risk issues relating to the perception of how safety is taken into account by corporate support functions and their processes, particularly Human Resources, IS and Procurement. A screensaver was commissioned for non-operational departments to highlight the important part they play in ‘finding a better way’ to support process safety in operational areas. We created the screensaver which was installed on 10,000 PCs throughout National Grid.
