The Man, The Myth, The Legend
Caton Manifesto was founded in 2013 and is the brainchild of Anthony Caton which first began as a platform to create one-off and limited edition, contemporary, bespoke pieces for his discerning client base. Early designs which had a strong focus on utilitarianism, experimentation of silhouettes and engineering of luxury cloth, along with the first capsule collections were integral in establishing the design code and aesthetic of Caton Manifesto, which focuses on the wearer, like a leading character.
The Brief For Soft Enamel Pins
Anthony came to us with a brief for a simple yet powerful object which would help him to communicate with his customers in a manner which is in line with the tone of voice, aesthetic and overall vision. He already had a great logo/symbol so it was just a case of transferring that into soft enamel pin badge form. His logo is a letter C which appears in the form of a zig zag stitch, so we had to be careful not to lose that fine detail.
