Branding, Logos & Visual Identities

Branding, Logos & Visual Identities

Your brand and identity speaks volumes about your company, values, heritage and overall activity.
I’ve worked with individuals looking to make a massive impact and for far larger clients who want to reposition or modernise their identity. Some want to dust off their old logo and give it a coat of paint and others want something ground breaking.
Concierge South West Branding

Concierge South West Branding

I absolutely love this brand and logo design. It's totally outside of my usual Swiss style of minimalism and ultra clean typography. That said, the solution demanded absolute elegance for Amanda - she is extremely elegant and this was the perfect way to represent her. I was contacted by Amanda and s...

Synarbor Visual Identity

You won't see this very often on a design website. A failed pitch! I was invited to pitch for a major visual identity scheme for Synarbor Group, a rapidly growing recruitment consultancy. I can only assume that a) they genuinely didn't like it, or b) I wasn't based in London (the company who won the...

Ardis Literature

My client required high quality, well specified and beautifully designed literature to promote their range of garden offices. I had already built their website and we translated web to print.

Get Yourself Recognised
To be successful, a company needs to be recognised and memorable. It could be your own name, for example ‘Jenny Jackson’ or what about something simple like ‘Super Special’. Branding is sold as a science but often it’s more about common sense. Before putting pencil to paper, a basic list of questions should be asked. What am I doing? Who wants it? Do they know they want it? Should it look expensive? Have I left the oven on? You get the idea.
Intelligent Brands
What if you need to “slide” into a market sector and be seen as established but the reality is you only started a few months ago? An intelligent brand can do this, again using common sense, research and a certain amount of skill and design alchemy. You might want to appear cutting edge, hi-tech and shiny or more traditional, e.g. ‘baking from the farm kitchen’.
Great Ideas & Execution
I'm here to help, pencil in hand; no waffle, piffle or jargon, just intelligent design and excellent ideas to give you the market presence you deserve. I can even create a brand manual which can be used for your supplier's reference.  
My Brand
Why is it so simple? Well, I have a memorable name and few forget it. I also promote clean, accurate, Swiss minimalist design – my logo reflects this. Blue is one of my favourite colours; I think I can be allowed this minor luxury. I love my brand! Read more about my design philosophy.
