Dialog are a husband and wife team working from a 200 year old watermill in Cumbria. James Gilbert and Rachael Gilbert-Burns conceive & build thoughtful and inspiring identities and experiences in spaces both digital and physical.
James’ background is in design and identity whilst Rachael has a background as a software engineer working predominantly in the cultural sector. As Dialog the duo research, explore and experiment, creating bespoke commissions for their clients which often combine physical elements with digital interaction. Alongside their work for clients Dialog also develop their own complimentary, in-house products, designed to enhance and challenge our perception of spaces—tools and ideas like curati.ng, Art Map Project and Various Artists.
The type of work Dialog produce is varied. A bespoke digital art platform for a festival in Scotland; an informative installation for Britains biggest automotive manufacturer and a playful visitor engagement piece for one of London’s most innovative Art’s organisations. Rather than being tied to a particular discipline, Dialog—above all else—are creative problem solvers.
In a typical project Dialog will consult whilst also collaborating with their client. Every project demands a heavy emphasis on in-depth research & development and ideas generation, ensuring that all elements of the project are extensively investigated and considered. Carefully contemplated graphics and typography are lovingly crafted, culminating in notable UI & UX design; Physical environments, hardware requirements and accessibility decisions are all deliberately scrutinised. Using years of user experience, accessibility and creative direction knowledge, Dialog excel when taking projects from inception to installation.
