Craig Taylor's Londoners is a publication studying life in London. Made up of over 80 interviews with a diverse range of inhabitants (pilots, manicurists, squatters, beekeepers, dominatrices, hedge fund managers...) the book offers an insight into the ways in which each character or interviewee perceives London life - which is often theorised against the ebbs and flows in their working lives. The Guardian's Sukhdev Sandhu comments, 'Taylor's confidants prove tha the city inspires its inhabitants to coin neologisms, torque meanings and craete striking turns of phrase. An estate agent who prides himself on his ability to read his clients' body language claims: "If they're smiling in a property, you know that something's igniting their p-spot"; Tim, a miserable financier, says he lives in "Londin" - "It's a cross between London and Londis. You're not exactly at Waitrose, you're not even at Sainsbury's, you're not even at Tesco. It's a bit shit in Londin".'

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
