Traditional Marketing – leaflet design & print for a client

Client Focus, Design

We recently were asked to design and print a double sided A5 leaflet for one of our long standing clients. As well as doing online marketing and SEO for them they wanted to do some traditional marketing too, so we designed this marketing brochure for them to deliver to their potential block management clients.

We then managed the print process for them and delivered the finished brochures to them this week.

Google fonts with a beautiful ampersand – what’s up with Baskerville?

Design, News, Website Design, Wordpress

I spent some time recently working on a couple of website designs that could really use a little design flourish, and I thought styling the ampersand would be just enough. Looking back to an old bit of code I knew you could usee CSS to style your special ameprsands, render them in Baskerville styled in Italic and hey presto….. wait what? This doesn’t look so good anymore, what the heck is up with Baskerville.

After trawling the web for a while I *think* I have found the answer – Baskerville is now called ‘Libre Baskerville’ in the Google font library, so changing your css font-family reference from “Baskerville” to “Libre Baskerville” fixed it up. For a couple of great references on styling beautiful ampersands I’d recommend these resources.

Moo Rounded Corner Business Cards

Design

I’ve recently produced two sets of rounded corner business cards and had them printed by the ever brilliant Moo.com. This particular set were made for the hen party for a good friend of mine and the theme of the hen party was ‘Barbie’ – she has had so many hobbies over the years that it made us think of “Party Barbie”, “Hiking Barbie”, “Drinking Barbie” – you get the picture.



Trump Cards rounded corner business cardsI saw a fantastic graphic over at Graphic River and thought we could put together a fun set of trump cards for each of her Barbie personas and this was the result.

It was a fantastic hen weekend and the Barbie theme went down a storm! If you’d like a novelty set of cards designed contact us today for a quote.
