Logo and brand guidelines - In development
Project 02

The English Leather Company

We are in the process of helping The English Leather company get off the ground. We took their ideas and requirements and developed a logo that represented 'English and Quality'. The use of the stylised crown and simplistic typography gives the logo a sense of 'class' whilst creating a logo that won't go out of fashion.

The Hanson Partnership

Logo design
Project 02

The Hanson Partnership

The Hanson Partnership needed a new logo in order to take their brand forward. As accountants they needed a logo that represented 'strength and trust'. They already had a typeface that they wanted to use, therefore I paired it up with a stylistic icon using a trustworthy palette of colours.

Web design and logo suggestion

1st Axis Limited

Good friends of mine wanted a new look and feel to their website, so I freshened the site up. I also suggested the use of a new logo, though they felt the implemetation of a new logo may not be cost effective at the present time.
