The Reach

Climbing centre



Helping The Reach to become the home of South London Climbing

We worked with The Reach to create a new look for their well-established climbing centre. Developing a strategy to promote their site as the home of South London Climbing. We worked sensitively through team workshops to uncover solutions that would make a difference. Producing a new website, large format print / on-site branding and video content.

Our approach

We spoke directly with the local community to strike the correct tone - Ensuring we offer solutions that make a positive change

We developed a range of brand concepts which were shared with the public. Constructing questionnaires to bring a wider audience into the decision making process. We wanted to support the logo with a range of punchy colours that integrate into a graphic cross-hatched pattern, simulating the effect of ropes. We used these colours as a gradient overlay for still and moving images.

Custom website

Custom graphics, animated site maps, video production, integrated booking system and more...

We worked from the ground up to develop a new custom built website, integrating an internal booking system and on-site registrations. With over 80% of The Reach’s current audience searching for the website on mobile, we designed unique interactions that make mobile the priority.


We knew this would be a large undertaking and are thrilled to have chosen Forage. Their patient and considered process exposed issues both on and offline, which they solved quickly with adaptable and relevant solutions.
