Design firm creates altared image for the Diocese of London

By Amanda Poole

A small Belfast design company has rebranded the Diocese of London and established a brand for the Bishop of London.

Paperjam Design, which has been located in the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast since 2003, began work on the project in 2010 and the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, is thrilled with the final results.

Paperjam created a historical crest using a modern illustrative style, bringing it up to date but at the same time reflecting heritage and authoritative qualities.

Illustrator Marcelo Oliveira, from Portugal, was also employed to help create a coat of arms that contained Amor Vincit Omnia 'Love Conquers All' and a new brand for the bishop's charity, The Bishop of London's Mission fund, which will be used throughout all the charity's materials.

Paperjam director, Paul Malone, said it was challenging to create a brand for one of the oldest organisations in the UK, but that his team, based in the Cotton Court building in Waring Street, enjoyed working on the project.

"Our activity shows that we can be known for good business and design no matter the size of the company," he said.

"And we are very excited about all the opportunities that seem to be coming from this.

"For a small company from Belfast to be rebranding one of the oldest organisations in the UK is a big deal."

Paperjam boasts a wide range of clients, including The Merchant Hotel and the Belfast Children's Festival.
