ILLUSTRATION

We fell in love with illustration long ago. It has an innate ability to express feeling and emotion that words do not convey. It is a form of communication for the masses, and while it often complements language, it has a voice all it’s own.

Illustration invokes colour and peaks interest. It tells complex stories with clarity and simplicity. It captivates the eyes and minds of children, and convinces even the greatest skeptic to buy a product they would have otherwise rebuffed. It’s now a highlight of branding, websites, and UI design. Illustration is at the heart of what we create on every platform and page.

To illustrate is to show meaning, or truth; to clarify.

Illustrations capture attention, enhance your brand, provide a unique style, and are at the forefront of modern communication. Let us tell your story…

Emblems

Custom emblems are hand-painted artworks personalised for weddings, events, gifts, and families. The artwork can be carried throughout an entire event for a cohesive and lasting impression.

Our clients guide the creative process by providing inspiration prior, refining sketches in collaboration with our artists, and proofing the painted artwork for changes to colour and composition. Emblems are hand painted to order and delivered as a high-resolution set of digital files.

    • Emblem design, painting, and proofing take approximately 3-4 weeks from start to completion.
    • Final digital file packages include a high-resolution PNG, JPG, and PDF.
    • Vector files for large format reproduction can be provided at no additional cost.
    • We require a contract and non-refundable 50% deposit to secure a reservation.

Maps

Maps are the perfect way to customise your stationery, gift someone a personal  piece of art, or add to any surface for an upcoming event. 

 

  • Maps are designed and hand-painted at size A3, however sizing can be customised for any format.

  • There are no restrictions on the number of locations included in a map, except allowable space.

  • These illustrations take approximately 6 weeks. If your project is time-sensitive, please let us know – we do accept rush orders subject to availability.

  • Digital delivery file formats include a JPEG, PNG and vector PDF.

  • We require a contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer prior to confirming a reservation.

BRANDING

Process

Branding was (and still is) misunderstood; it has been reduced to its aesthetic component: visual identity. But branding is so much more. It allows your customers and clients to know what to expect from your company. It is a way of distinguishing yourself from the competitors and clarifying what it is you offer that makes you the better choice. Your brand is built to be a true representation of who you are as a business, and how you wish to be perceived.

Learning more about our branding process below. 

Create Design Board

The creation of a design board is our first step toward understanding a business, the story behind it, and the visual aesthetics of the project. Here, we put your company values, goals, mission statement, examples of other branding in the sector, your current branding (if any), colour palette examples, and inspirational images.

Market Research

Now is the time to work out how your business can stand out from the crowd. Familiarising ourselves with other businesses in the industry, the clients and prospective clients of the brand and their values are all key considerations. Also looking at failed brands in the industry (what went wrong and why) is important.

Identify your Unique Niche

What does your company do that is unique? How can you best leverage your unique selling points? The job here is not to appeal to everyone, but to your current customers and the customers you want to attract in the future. Working out why you are the right choice compared to everyone else in the market is a huge part of the branding process.

Establish an Aesthetic and Brand Voice

A brand voice defines how your company will connect with customers. Understanding your customer and what aesthetic and voice will inspire them commit to your brand is the clear goal. By this point, our design board should be pointing in a very clear direction: our market research combined with a brand owners' vision for the future sets the tone for a perfect brand strategy.

Brand Identity

This is the point where we design your brand logo and identity components. Defining the typography, key artworks, colours, packaging, and patterns are included at this phase. There are several rounds of proofing to be sure we are on target and our client is happy with all pieces we develop. All artwork is delivered in multiple formats at high resolution for unlimited use.

Implementation

Further developing pieces such as menus, business cards, decor, and website design and development are completed at this stage.
