Profile: Tin Horse

"Really big dreams for everyday things," quotes Tin Horse's website, and it's not wrong. The small but hugely successful UK company has transformed paint tins, oil cans, pots of moisturiser and shampoo bottles to become everyday objects which stand out from the crowd.

Structural packaging design house Tin Horse was formed in 1990 and is owned by its three directors, Martin Bunce, Peter Booth and John Lamb. "We're first and foremost designers, passionate for creativity, exploration and invention," says Bunce. "In the early days, we viewed business issues with a high degree of suspicion, never wanting them to come between us and our creative intentions. More recently we've embraced a little more discipline as we utilise the extraordinary resource that the Tin Horse team represents."
