It's been a busy couple of months for us and we are delighted to share the news of our recent design partnership with West Ward Works.

Vital Hike have been appointed to create a new brand identity for West Ward Works, Dundee.

West Ward Works is a part of the fabric of Dundee, past and present. A former jute mill transformed into a printing factory by DC Thomson; the building has had an impressive history and is gearing up for it's next transformation. In its heyday, West Ward Works was primarily responsible for producing a variety of much loved DC Thomson annuals.

'At peak production, 30 annuals were printed and bound at West Ward, including half a million copies each of Dandy and Beano. Titles such as Bunty, Judy, Hotspur, Victor and Jackie also had big runs as the 1960s progressed.' – Dr Norman Watson, April 2017

The next evolution of the building is one of creativity and inclusivity. We are excited to be a part of this ambitious project and to see these plans develop over the coming years.
