It's almost impossible to explain all that we offer but giving you some examples of my past projects is a start!
Al's BBQ Streetfood
Idea to Launch Project
This was a full start to finish service. When Liam, Tom and Aaron had the idea for Al's they contacted me and asked for my assistance with the launch of their business and brand.
I started by designing the logo after I had understood the vision for their business which gave that rustic american grill feel to it.
We then moved onto a platform to enable them to sell and take online orders which would speed up their processes and avoid having to employ additional staff. We created a platform and took some photos to add to this.
The social media was developed and I am currently managing this for them, notifying clients of special offers, upcoming events and sharing some good food!
Along with managing the website I also create weekly emails to send to their subscribers, which usually converts to around 10% sales.
Finally we provided some print solutions, namely stickers, t-shirts and a design and print of their menu which we organised distribution of.
This was a fairly extensive project which was super cool to be part of, the boys are based at the former greyhound track in Peterborough and worth trying! Great thinks are going to come from them in the near future.
Logo Design and Ad Hoc social media design
Charlotte approached me to design her logo and branding for her new venture, hearty home cooked meals which simply need to be popped into the oven! Oh and her brownies are AMAZING!
She had a real vision for her branding and had lots of examples which was really useful and together we worked out her design and put together a really powerful brand!
Charlotte now just drops a message as and when she needs some design work or assistance with anything.
Recently we designed some social media posts, menus and some stickers to give her food a real personal touch (they look great on her brownies! Did I mention those?)
She's based in Stamford, Lincolnshire so if you are local check her out, the food is yummy!
Candy Lab UK
Brand Design and E-Commerce Build
Candy Lab started as a small thought with BIG ideas. To create a funky brand aimed at adults but also catering for children too.
Frazer had an idea for a science themed brand which would make it strand out and different.
We worked together on lots of different brand ideas and settled on this which I have to say I really do like!
He also wanted a complete e-commerce site built which was easy to manage and made life simple, he already had a full time job so wanted something which would be easy to access and help him fulfil orders. Being a shopify Partner we developed a site built with apps to link systems and automate a lot of processes.
We now continue to manage the social media for him as well as offering we support and a design and print service.
Pretty much a turnkey business now for him with full management and support from us.
