Rare concept for a specialist recruiter

View the project

Chartres Search – Specialist Search Company


Tim Gauntlet approached me to design him a new site for his specialist search firm, focusing entirely on law.



I crafted a concept that depicted rare birdlife of the British Isles, this under-pinned the brand beautifully in two ways. The concept of ‘rarities’ is exactly what he does, matching specific candidates to specialist positions… the style of the drawings too marries with the personality of the brand, being very British and slightly eccentric, but very contemporary. I sourced old drawings of the birds and put them with sharp copywriting for the slider images on the home page. The design is very different to any competitor which is a quality I try to bring to every project I work on.

The website was created in WordPress, allowing Nigel to be in control of all of the content on the site.
