Podcast Branding

So, we are on week 6 of a UK lockdown – how are we all coping? Challenging hey! But vital for everyone’s health and well-being.

As a creative studio we’ve found it really encouraging how the creative community have met the challenge head-on and produced some wonderful campaign art. We’ve also witnessed the rise of the billboard and poster again. Brilliant! So many positive, hard-hitting messages out there at the mo, it is simply wonderful!

Over recent weeks we’ve also identified an increase in demand for our digital output – I suppose this is to be expected and welcomed! What is exciting is that people are using this opportunity to take the plunge and perhaps try things they wouldn’t normally do. We have witnessed a rise in home broadcasting and podcasts. Over the last week we’ve designed brand idents for political and environmental debates, gardening forums, scooter radio stationsfitness groups, mother & baby groups andmusic tutorials to name a few!

We love working in this reactionary way and seeing our artwork out there in the big wide world, doing its thing, long may this sense of adventure continue. Watch this space! Keep safe.

Re-frame Your Now

We are proud to announce a recent collaboration with @lookagainphotography. Over the last two weeks we have been creating ‘Re-frame Your Now ™’ – a FREE Mindful Photography Programme.

The programme uses a combination of mindfulness, photography and nature to help you and your household stay calm and connected and get creative – at home.

Are you anxious, fearful or feeling low about the coronavirus and all the uncertainty that comes with it? Would you like to improve your mental health and build resilience at this difficult time?

This FREE resource is here to help. If you represent an organisation or business and would like to offer this to your staff or service users, please contact Ruth.⠀

b-side Festival

There are certainly signs of Spring looking out of the window and nothing says “Spring” like an influx of festival design. This week we’ve been created banners to promote b-side.

b-side is an internationally recognised and locally loved arts organisation on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. This year the festival takes place 05 – 13 September 2020. See b-side.org.uk for more details.

Cheltenham Design Festival

The Cheltenham Design Festival will be returning this November and we can’t wait!

This years festival theme is all about togetherness and relationships and our Founder & Creative Director, Andy Hussey has been asked to submit a poster for “Design Connects Us” – a screen printing challenge in collaboration with Gloucestershire University.

The poster will be typographic and will be a response to the theme of “relationships”, depicting what that means to him and Lost & Found Creative as a business, as well as the wider community.

Working with students at the university, Andy will screen-print the final design and posters will be exhibited at the university for one week in the lead up to the main festival.

The final designs will form part of the official festival launch which will be happening in November.

See https://cheltdesign.co.uk for more details.

Inked: The Graphic Art of the Tattoo

We can’t wait for this talk and to visit the Mshed exhibition…

Branding is about creating something unique in a sea of sameness. It’s about stand-out and individuality — we don’t create brands that blend in, we create them to stand out.

We take our visual cue from a relevant category and then give our designs just enough of a twist to be different. It creates a sense of belonging. And like us, it’s tribal.

Inevitably we brand ourselves by the clothes we wear, the brands we follow, the products we buy, the causes we support, and the people we hang out with. But for a large number of people it goes deeper than this. It goes skin deep.

The West of England Design Forum is hosting an event that celebrates all things ancient and modern in the world of tattooing. It’s obsessiveness within the design community and – unlike the ephemerality of fashion trends – the inky permanence of branding yourself.
