One of the great British retail design agencies, Checkland Kindleysides has a truly impressive portfolio, with ground breaking retail concepts under its belt that stretch back over two decades.

Perhaps more importantly they have long term relationships with clients such as Timberland, Converse, Sony and Levis, which have evolved and grown over the years.

Checkland’s does interiors, graphics and branding, and is extremely competent with digital, but their real skill is in creating crafted brand storytelling, with luscious attention to quality and detail.

They have a full scale workshop at their main office, which gives them an instinctive understanding of materials and an appreciation of the artisan approach.

2014 was a great year for Checkland Kindleysides, with a fantastic global flagship for Hunter on London’s best shopping street, two retail flagships for Nixon watches – their first foray into physical retail, as well as a lovely crafted concept for heritage shoe maker Joseph Cheaney, for whom they have completed an even more beautiful second store on Henrietta Street, which is fast becoming Covent Garden’s menswear street.

More recent projects have included the launch of a major fashion concept for Lindex at Westfield Stratford, demonstrating their skill with mainstream fast fashion, as well as expansions of Nixon to New York.

Their stores for Jigsaw – in Westfield London and in Guildford (which includes The Shop at Bluebird) demonstrate their ability to create different interior design concepts, whilst retaining a singular brand ethos.

They also designed a wonderful storytelling flagship for traditional Scottish cashmere brand Johnston’s of Elgin on London’s New Bond Street.

Working in collaboration with NY creative agency DML, CK has demonstrated their craft skills in realising the curated concept for Hermes petit h pop-up in New York.

Jeff Kindleysides is the design boss who presides over the business.
