Corporate Identity

A Corporate Identity aims to capture the 'persona' of a company and provides a set of guidelines on the font, colour scheme, logo and other elements of printed material.  These days, it is also nearly always reflected in the company's website, which should be in harmony with the print design.

Companies vary in the rigour with which the guidelines are applied.  Having a Corporate Identity serves several purposes:

  • Brand Recognition - by having a uniform design, people recognize it and associate it with the company.  If you see the Starbucks, GAP or Disney logo, you will instantly associate it with the company.  The same is true for smaller organisations targeting niche or local markets.
  • Association with Quality - As a brand develops and a company gains a good reputation, the branding becomes associated with a certain level of quality.  Customers know what to expect when they see a certain brand.
  • Symbolism - the logo design and other aspects of corporate identity come to symbolize the values and products or services of the company.
  • Efficiency - when the colour scheme, font, spacing, etc. are all defined, it's easier to put proposals or portfolios together when working with a group within the same company.

Whether you are looking for a complete Corporate Identity, or specific aspects of one (a logo, letter head and business card design, say), we will work with you to create an impactful and original Corporate Identity that fulfills all of the above objectives, making your company instantly recognizable by its branding.

Print Design

When creating brochures, leaflets, business cards and other print designs, we work closely with our clients to gain an in depth understanding of the specific project being undertaken.  We will ask a series of questions in order to learn specifics about the project such as any recommendations on colour, fonts, format, etc. and general information, such as the company's ethos and objectives.

Using these information, we then set to work on the creative process, with one or several graphic designers available to create designs that are innovative and that will reflect your industry, ethos and the specific project at hand.

Our print design services include:

  • Logo Design
  • Press Kits
  • Business cards
  • Brochures and leaflets
  • Presentation folders
  • Company stationery
  • Adverts for newspapers and magazines

Our marketing material will be camera ready and be presented with a harmonious balance between text and images, with a team of creatives to generate original ideas and provide you with a high quality product, on time and to the budget agreed.

Internet Marketing

As well as print marketing, we offer internet marketing in several forms:

  • Design Optimization - Developing the graphic design of your website and looking at it from a fresh perspective.  We ensure that the design presents your company in a positive, professional light, includes user-friendly navigation and a user-friendly ordering process for e-commerce websites.  Having a badly designed website will result in people clicking the 'back' button.  We optimize websites to encourage visitors to stay on the site and locate the information they're looking for.
  • Search Engine Optimization - Search engines look at all kinds of things on a page to determine whereabouts to show it in the search results - titles, links, image names, URLs, ALT tags, metatags and a heap of other things besides.  When optimizing a website, we look at 20 different factors and optimize them all so that your website reads well and sends a clear message to search engines targeting the keywords of your choice.  We also build high quality links as part of the Search Engine Optimization process.
  • Banner Creation - Creating attractive website banners to promote your site.
  • Content Writing - writing original and interesting content for websites.

Logo Design

When working on a logo design project, we first discuss your own ideas and requirements for the design.  We then put together a specification document and send this to 2 or 3 different graphic designers, to each work on transforming your idea into a professional logo design.  Each graphic designer will bring their own unique creativity to the project, giving you a selection of original logo designs to choose from when the project is completed.

We design logos that:

  • Are original and innovative.
  • Accurately reflect your ideas and the nature of your company and industry.
  • Are produced to a high standard of quality within deadline.
