Formed in 2000 by Duncan Foot and Nev Appleton we had a vision – to create a dynamic, approachable and sustainable television graphics company. Our ethos was, and still is, to provide the highest level of operational, technical and creative proficiency, and to always demonstrate initiative and an appreciation of our clients’ needs.
Providing live graphics worldwide and for many of the UK’s premier sporting events, including Wimbledon, The Open Championship, The Grand National and, of course, The Olympics. We also work on a wide range of other genres, with recent projects including The Royal Wedding, comedy shows, such as Mock the Week and many live music and arts events.
CREATIVE DESIGN, TITLES + BRANDING
Excellent design and communication skills give us the ability to manage the complete creative process from start to finish. Getting involved at the beginning gives our clients numerous benefits, such as enhanced productivity, flexibility at the crucial sign-off stage and coming in on or under budget. It’s also easier and cost effective to delivery all the elements for print, web, and set design along with multiple broadcast and edit formats for the entire project.
Usually all our work is done in-house but for studio or outside broadcasts we can setup there with ease. This enables our clients quicker turnaround content and advice at the concept stages.
Most of our graphics equipment is available for hire with or without an operator or designer. Our product range includes the Chyron HyperX, Final Cut / 3D workstations, FOR-A touch-screen analysis tools, AJA recording, playback and Crystal Vision transition (wipe) devices.

We often develop new ideas or solutions from client concepts. This can range from logging and stats databases to drive graphics outputs, touch-screen scoring systems for sporting bodies, to real-time 3D animations controlled by the actors themselves.
