Blinding

A recent piece of Toxic branding with a bit of a Brummie reference. The company polishes automotive, architectual and household alloy, brass, copper, steel and stainless to specific finishes, everything from romany brasses to custom bike exhausts. So if you want something to look mint then it would be a crime not to use them.

Another year over and so onto the next with an array of interesting stuff in the toxic pipeline. As ever, thank you to all those we have had the fortune to collaborate with over the last 12 months in whatever capacity.

Lets hope the coming year proves to be just as fruitful.
