We're nearly at the end of another eventful year (can you believe it!).

It sure has been a rollercoaster, filled with everything from fun and adventures, to immense stress and heartache for many.

Wishing you and your loved ones a festive season filled with warm weather and (more importantly) warm hearts, and a year to come that will be brighter and more beautiful!

My studio will be informally closed from Friday (as Ill be here, there and everywhere), but if you need anything done urgently, try your luck and Ill do my best to help! x

Logo and branding designed for a Social Worker in Private Practice. The aim here was to create a logo and brand that is both warm and authentic, showing the compassionate, caring nature of Carrie, as well as being incredibly professional and knowledgable.

The icon designed combines the 'C' and 'B' of Carries initials which interlock to form a heart, representing communication and connection in a warm, compassionate environment.

Im not sure where this year is going, but its been 6 months since I last posted here πŸ˜… My design work, art (find my art page on Instagram if interested! Instagram.com/anjaclarkeart ) and life generally has been busy - so for that I am grateful πŸ™‚

My lovely friend (and client) Amelda has been keeping my mouse clicking with some new branding for LidCo Beef. I love how the icon subtly represents the silhouette and shape of livestock face and horns, while reinforcing the 'L' of the brand name - coming together nicely for a very strong and stylish brand.

Part 2 of LidCo will follow soon, and you will see how one can brand a subsidiary of a business so there is a very clear link, but with its own distinct look and feel πŸ™‚

Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we as humans are constantly communicating - in many ways and on many levels.

Your business / brand is the same - the visual perception of your brand is more than just your logo. Your branding should reflect your company culture, the story it tells, the way you treat your customers, the way you do business - its the entire experience. Make sure you are communicating what you need to!

Thomas Waston Jnr stated that 'Good design is Good Business', and went about transforming the IBM brand from drab, boxy products to the leading computer and technology company of its time through design.

Today, design is not only about making a product or business look good - it’s a way of thinking: a creative process that spans entire organizations, driven by the desire to better understand and meet customer needs.

Good design = Good business ;)

Apologies if you are seeing this post for the second time... Facebook won't let me view the previous one due to it being in a different viewing mode...

This was such a fun and fabulous project to work on. A lovely client of mine decided to give her sister a logo and brand as a birthday gift to kickstart her dream of owning her own nursery. What an AMAZING and thoughtful idea! Thank you Sherry and Michelle! :)

Investing in (good) design is worthwhile - no matter how big or small your business is...

Design helps you to create an amazing first impression, will differentiate you from the competition, will allow your business to ✨ shine ✨ and become memorable to your audience, promote brand consistency (which creates understanding and trust), strong customer relationships and ultimately boost sales.

Don't see it as an expense, but rather a very worthwhile investment :)x

Logo and corporate stationery designed for Wendy McCallum, Development Strategist (and all round incredible woman!)

We worked on a unique mark for her business that represents the 'WM' of her initials, and a graph element that gives you a subtle clue as to what her business is all about.

What an honour to be involved in the branding of the incredible Dr Joys Medical Aesthetics practice at The Fountain Hair, Beauty & Aesthetics in Walmer.

We wanted a sophisticated, elegant (yet warm) look and feel, tying in to the GORGEOUS rose golds, natural woods and marbles of her interior styling. I think we pulled it off! What do you think?!

8 New Graphic Design Trends That Will Take Over 2018 - Venngage

Graphic design trends are constantly changing and evolving... something that is trending one year may look completely outdated the next. It goes without saying that the influence of graphic design will bleed into all aspects of our lives - from fashion, interior design, art and advertising. Have a look at what is going to be uber fashionable in the design world in 2018! (Hint: You can look forward to plenty of colour (LOVE!), a major 80s and 90s influence, bold typography, authentic photography and while minimalism is still going to be big, its also going to get its groove back a bit :)

My favourite thing in the world - a good "before and after" :) It is by far the most effective way to get your business/brand looking up to date and more modern, and differentiating yourself from competitors. Over time brands can come across as old-fashioned and out of touch if they have not been updated. Although in many cases it is not the main reason, a more modern image is often one of the motivations behind a rebranding project. If you feel its time to breathe some new life into your company's image, give me a shout!

*All rebrand work - from logo design through to the corporate identity design, website design and photography of partners / staff carried through by me

The simplest and most effective way to improve the perception of your business or service and differentiate it from the competition is branding... such a powerful tool!
