Construction Design Manual
The Yellow Book is Willmott Dixon flagship design manual, primarily used as a resource tool by Willmott Dixon designers and suppliers outlining the Willmott Dixon way when undertaking construction projects. Liven Creative designed this manual ensuring a visual consistency for how images, diagrams, tables and content are shown.
Willmott Dixon commissioned Liven Creative to create their 2017 project showreel. Animation elements took inspiration from their triangular corporate identity. A summary of the showreel can be found below.
Willmott Dixon commissioned Liven Creative to create an identity design for a new initiative of theirs called ‘How I Changed the World’. The initiative aims to encourage building professionals to share ideas and innovations with their peers. The new identity design was created inline with Willmott Dixon brand guidelines and the shorter descriptor recommended by Liven Creative resulted in a more emotive connection with their target audience.
As part of an end of year internal communication campaign, Liven Creative was asked by Willmott Dixon to create a festive employee awards video sequence. The video highlighted a number of different awards, nominees and winners. A summary of the awards video can be found below.

Project Portfolio Pack
To showcase key construction projects, Liven Creative designed Willmott Dixon printed promotional pack.
We were asked by Willmott Dixon to produce a bespoke 18-month project journal. The aim of the journal, to enable Willmott Dixon to assess how smoothly a project had been undertaken and how they might be able to improve in the future. The journal allowed users to keep a log of site activity and how they were emotionally feeling during the duration of a project.
Work included the creation of a set of bespoke Willmott Dixon emoji’s, which conveyed 5 different emotions, and 12 x striking divider pages, which highlighted how different aspects of nature had inspired some of the worlds most iconic buildings.
The journal was very well received and will now be rolled out across all future projects.
We started working with Liven at the backend of 2014 and they have been great. They really listen to what we are after and come back with great, creative ideas that fit the brief. Would definitely recommend them.
