Nigel Cabourn - 2013

We were honoured to design Nigel Cabourn’s inaugural ecommerce website, working closely with the team to research and reference their deep-rooted relationship with military and workwear-inspired clothing.

The attention to detail and uncompromising finish of their garments had to be mirrored in the design approach, layering texture with typographic treatments, weathered images and icons which evoked an evolving scrapbook, itself a nod to the collection of vintage publications and Nigel’s fathers own war journals.

Value-added features for the myriad Cabourn enthusiasts include a timeline charting the labels progression from the infamous Ascent of Cabourn collection in 2003 to present day, and a forum to exchange and showcase images of well worn and loved garments and collector’s pieces.
