Our approach

We wanted to retain the essence of the Penguin brand, while bringing modernity to key assets. Our creative platform played into the British quirks and charming eccentricities that characterise the brand and make it so memorable.

Our design team scoured the archives, finding design inspiration from Penguin's past, and ensuring that the design of today was a faithful evolution; respecting the rich heritage of the brand. Our crafted Penguin characters were created by our in-house illustration team, who transported them into irresistible modern-day characters full of vibrancy and wit.

The result

Everyone’s favourite, transported into the modern day and designed to delight across the consumer journey.
