About

Great branding is far more than just design. For a brand to work it needs creativity, passion and purpose. We help you transform your business and inspire your customers.

 

WORKING WITH US

THE PROCESS WE TAKE YOU THROUGH

 

Working with us will help you to define your strategy, your brand narrative and your customer.

Meeting clients

MEET & DISCOVER

We discover as much as we can about you and your brand. This helps us to position your brand, understand your market and find out exactly what you need.

SHAPE & CREATE

We take what we learned in the Discovery phase and use it to explore your identity and visual themes. We keep refining our ideas and together, with you, we define your identity.

Branding and design

DESIGN & REFINE

We take all the information and feedback gathered to finalise your brand identity. Now that your vision and ambitions nailed down, we can start creating final artwork and designs.

DELIVER & IMPLEMENT

Once we have finalised designs with you, we launch the project, liaising with print and manufacturers to ensure all objectives are met and executed to the highest standard. We provide the clients with the necessary guidelines and toolkits to move forward.

MANAGE & GROW

Once the project is launched, we like to keep an ongoing relationship with you. We monitor the project’s growth over time and provide support and advice where needed. All of our clients stay in touch and continue to work with us so we hope you will too.

 

WHAT WE OFFER

THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE

 

We make sure that your business and products look and feel right for you and who you want to reach. We do this by combining our services and expertise in the following…

BRAND IDENTITY & STRATEGY

Branding is part of everything we do, because we can’t design your logo or your packaging without knowing who you are and who your customers are. We get to know what’s important to you, what you want to achieve and how you should be communicating with your audience.

DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION

Our talented designers are all trained in both illustration and design – so original, bespoke artwork just comes as standard. We can create everything by hand before rendering it digitally to get the right style for you.

TONE OF VOICE & COPY

An important part of the branding process is working out what you want to say and how you’re going to say it. We can help you communicate better with your customers and even write for you – from labels, to marketing materials, to website copy.

PRODUCT & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

Looking good doesn’t stop with the design. We make sure your product looks great in all your marketing materials and on your website by doing product photography in-house.

Typeface design

WEB DESIGN

We can work with your web developers or recommend our own, to design the usability, layout and the look and feel of your website.

Packaging design

PACKAGING & PRINT MANAGEMENT

As serious industry geeks, we love packaging. So we can advise on labels, finishes, manufacturers, printing and even organise it all for you. We want the end product to be as good as the design so we’re here to help from the concept to the shelf.
