However, as with any job, it comes with its challenges, one of these being a constant need to find inspiration. When delivering designs becomes commercial, it is perhaps easy to become stuck in a style rutt and feel as though the inspiration for creating something new and different but still on brief is somewhat

Being included with the best of the best

The Creativepool Annual is a collection of the previous year's greatest design work from around the world. The Annual showcases only the most inspirational creations and includes work from some of the world's biggest design agencies for some of the world's best known brands.

The universal language of good design

GP Pall Mall is the leading Spanish tile agent feeding the UK and Irish markets. Although the company had been operating in the UK for a number of years it hadn't yet completely settled on its brand identity. Littlefish was called in initially to produce a very simple and straightforward presentation for GP Pall Mall to use in a pitch to a well known trade association. The business owner, George, was so impressed with what

Never fully clocking off or missing an opportunity to be inspired,

A design Mecca

Recently I was lucky enough to visit my design Mecca, Amsterdam, on a work trip. We were only there for a very short time but it doesn’t take long to feel completely inspired by your surroundings once there. The architecture itself is stunning, with the canal-side, multi-story houses so completely different to what we see here they cant help but captivate. There’s the different coloured, smaller-than-you-get-here brick, the amazing windows and the way that all

Welcome to the blog

Hello! And welcome to the very first instalment of the Littlefish Creative blog. We hope you like what you see while you're here! We thought we'd start by getting better acquainted and by telling you about how Littlefish began and why we're here... We've spent more than 14 years of our working lives dedicated to design.
