A few of our recent projects
The Old Potting Shed is a gorgeous new B&B property tucked away on the outskirts of York. The owners wanted a brand identity that could be used across all promotional platforms, a website (linked to Booking.com for seamless booking transactions) and print leaflet.
The brand palette and logo design played on the property name, while the typeface positioned the brand as contemporary, relaxed and high quality. The website was designed with a heavy focus on photography and the content written to include all the information needed by potential renters (including a custom map).
The print leaflet reflected the brand palette and website content, and was laid out to be a convenient size for potential renters, while fitting in a standard leaflet dispenser across a range of outlets.
Notable Nannies is a new childcare agency in London that needed a brand identity, a website and a social media presence. Working closely with the founder we designed a logo that reflected visually the brand's classic values, and then used a contemporary colour palette to bring things bang up to date. Designing the website and creating content came next, followed by the Facebook page and Twitter account.
As a start-up business ROI was even more important than usual and it was fantastic to hear that the digital presence drove 125 Facebook likes within just a few days and the first client project was commissioned within the first week of going live.
The Company of Merchant Taylors in the City of York may be a guild originally established in the 13th century, but their charitable and venue hire activities are very much of the 21st. They wanted us to establish a social media presence and develop a new device-responsive website that was classic but with a crisp, contemporary feel, easy to navigate but with a secure Members' area, and integrated with their existing stand-alone landing pages. A challenging brief and a great project to work on.
The Design House's logo needed refreshing and their website wasn't responsive on tablets and smartphones, making it frustrating to use.
We kept the essence of their well-established brand image, while updating its palette, and built a brand new website with content highlighting the gorgeous interiors this client creates.
The Yorkshire Arboretum asked us to design and write a suite of new promotional materials for their 2016 season. These included an A3 folded children's activity map, a 12 page What's On booklet and a trifold visitor services leaflet.
Millbridge Farm Camping & Caravan Site wanted a new logo and brand palette, and a fresh new website that would allow their potential visitors to view the site on a variety of devices. Their neighbouring fields are home to rare breed sheep and pygmy goats so we drew on these (not literally!) for brand inspiration.
PulseFlow Technologies, a start-up medical device company, commissioned us to write the content of their new clinician literature.
We wrote introductory text for a carrier folder and in-depth content for four inserts covering the device's mode of action, features and benefits, treatment regimen and its indications and contraindications.
The Yorkshire Arboretum is a registered charity and needed new materials to promote its fundraising objectives. We designed and wrote a new leaflet promoting legacy donations, and an 8 page A5 booklet detailing the Open Gardens scheme.
