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.⠀

Please note:
The programme is endorsed by the University of Gloucestershire, Gloucester Cathedral, Arts and Health South West, and Create Gloucestershire, with support from the Laura Kinsella Foundation and in kind design by Lost & Found Creative.

The role of infographics

Infographics are fun, creative ways to visualize all types of information. By displaying information in colorful, graphic charts, designers are changing the way we view data. Whether its laying out a policy document on maternity leave or teaching the Dothraki language (one for the Game of Thrones fans), there are educational, informative charts for everyone.

Also known as pictographs, there are a huge variety of styles in the infographic world. Some rely on custom illustrations accompanied by facts, others set out their data visualization with timelines and colorful flowcharts. We look inside the mind of Kanye West through an illustrated portrait and graphic fonts just as easy as we learn washing habits around the globe with carefully laid out diagrams.

With cool designs and high impact, its no wonder that this form of visual media has exploded over the past few years and we’ve found ourselves designing them on a daily basis. Now, there are even websites and apps that help you make your own clever, cool infographic. PiktochartCanva, and Venngage are just some sites that allow non-designers the possibility to get in on the action. Take a look but don’t forget the pros – bespoke can ensure they are fit for purpose and on brand.

CE Marquees

This month we’ve created a modern identity for new marquee company based in Cheltenham, CE Marquees. Our client wanted something that has impact and a sense of drama, yet had a sense of structure and was easy to apply to clothing etc.

We’ve branded three marquee companies since we formed 7 years ago and all have taken a very different approach. It’s great to see the branding applied and when they appear at festivals that we have also branded.

LinkedIn

New year, fresh look! We’ve had an influx from our regular clients (and some new ) requesting graphic assets for social media, in particular LinkedIn.

It’s vital that your social presence has personality and reflects you and your business. If you are a larger organisation, consistency across employee profiles can really elevate your organisation. Also think about how banners crop and respond across devices. One quick tip for free… patterns work well, as does solid colour. #StandOutFromTheCrowd

Linger

Linger is a new event taking place at Painswick Rococo Garden.

This Summer enjoy an exhibition of fanciful ‘sitting places’ bringing together creative garden seating made by artists, designer-makers and artisans from around the region.

We’ve really enjoyed branding this event and can’t wait to produce further comms as the project evolves.
