The Opportunity

Methven needed a comprehensive product catalogue to showcase its innovative tapware and showers for the UK market.

The Answer

Our team collaborated with both Methven’s UK and New Zealand offices to gather information on its extensive product range. We designed a visually engaging 190-page catalogue, which included technical drawings, iconography, and product photography. We managed the project from creative conception to completion. Eight editions later, the design has been refined with a heavier focus on or the company’s water-saving technologies.


The Outcome

Methven successfully launched their new product guide, the One Book, which has become an invaluable tool for retailers and professional installers. The catalogue showcases Methven’s latest innovations and emphasises its dedication to sustainable and energy-efficient solutions

Straightforward have been instrumental in elevating our brand presence in the UK market, helping us reach new customers and strengthening our commitment to sustainable water solutions.
