Greenwich University has launched a new sub-brand called Upstart, a business support scheme that links university leavers or people who want to change their profession and enter the creative industry. Greenwich University approached Raw Nerve to create an identity for the scheme that was simple, fresh and had impact. Raw Nerve also designed a brochure that represented this incubating scheme in a clear and contemporary way.

Raw Nerve designed the ‘Diesel Dreams’ internal staff report 2005. The concept was informed by the feelings and actions associated with daydreaming. Fleeting moments and random thoughts are suggested with sparsley scattered illustrations and an open airy layout. Collages of biro doodles and post-it notes give the impression of floating thoughts. The brand Diesel was born more than 20 years ago and is today an innovative international design company, manufacturing jeans and casual clothing as well as accessories.
