Design & Concept

“What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.”

The Captain: Cool Hand Luke 1967

We have all been there. The client has an idea, they want it to be cool…  and there ends the brief.

The creatives at a Black Lie Studiohave also been there and over the years have built a wealth of knowledge, reference and an amazing inhouse library of stock images. We have these at our fingertips and with the skills available we are pretty confident we can come up with something that not only did your client have in their mind but hopefully other ideas they didn’t.

As part of the creative drive here at aBlackLie, we sometimes just need do do something for ourselves.

UltraNocturne was an experiment in creating an entirely new online exhibition space. No longer the need for that opening night panic in a Hoxton basement, this was created to launch Globally on the same night.

Featuring many of Londons nightlife characters, Djs’ and celebrities, this really was a fun labour of love taking nearly 2 years to complete.



Don’t get boxed into that corner, don’t run out of time and don’t settle for “that will do for now”
