Armenia, Santorini, Georgia, Macedonia, India. Not necessarily areas of the world that spring to mind when you think of good wine. After a wonderful evening with Susan Harper, we are now converted. As part of our monthly Dialogue speaker series, Susan imparted just some of her vast knowledge with ‘Wines from the Edge’, bringing with her eight wines, of which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

A huge thank you to both clients and we keep our fingers crossed for good news later in the month.
Celebrating “exceptional projects that shine with an uncommon artistry”, we’re delighted to have achieved further success at the Indigo Design Awards, 2022.

As part of Socrates’ Dialogue series, we were delighted to be joined by the wonderfully talented and celebrated illustrator, Robbie Polley. Robbie chatted through his extraordinary career, as well as showing just some of the ways he kept himself occupied during lockdown. Namely by recreating the intricacies of some of the world’s most impressive cars – it’s fair to say we all felt rather in awe of him!
Following appointment by J Safra Real Estate, Socrates have been curating a new brand, visual language and suite of collateral for 95 Queen Victoria Street.
