Working Sail
2001 - current 


Working Sail are builders of traditional wooden boats, in particular replica pilot cutters that originate from the Isles of Scilly. It’s an honour and pleasure to design promotions for such graceful sailing craft which requires equally solid design principles and skills to match those of the vessels. 

In response to their brief CTD has developed a classic yet contemporary style which reflects the boats’ traditional lines and the business’ no-nonsense approach. This is carried through across the entire spectrum of deliverables, from the website to brochures, and stationery to launch invitations. We also designed and produced their illustrated book, which explores the history, demise and revival of the pilot cutters and documents the building of these traditional craft today.
