Design, print and promotion

We design business cards, letterheads, templates, email signatures, brochures, profiles, flyers, posters, packaging, and newsletter templates – whatever it is that you need your logo on, our marketing team will provide.

Creativity with design, is thinking outside of the square to grab people’s attention. Whether you’d like something ‘standard’ or for us to get our thinking caps on, we’ve got you. We offer print services and can also plan and order promotional products for you.

  • Logos and Branding; new, redesign or refresh
  • Stationery; business cards, letterheads, and word document templates
  • Printed Materials; brochures, profiles, annual reports, and event stationery
  • Promotional Materials; pens, gifts, signage, uniforms

You can use a printing company of your choice and we’ll provide you with print-ready files, or you can make use of our printers who provide us with quality work for a good price.

Branding

Is a brand, a logo? We don’t think so… a logo can turn into a brand eventually, but we don’t believe it starts out as a brand. To us, a logo is the simple, clip-art design where you just need to represent your business or product through stationery, cards, merchandise, your website, etc.

A brand is more of a personality and requires more information to consider, such as who your audience is and what would attract them, who your competitors are and how to achieve longevity in the market. It is also in the way that it’s presented – your brand is the experience people have when they meet you or your business.

We will discuss colours, symbol ideas and taglines to create a brief. Concepts are created based on this brief. We can also go a step further and add research to the project – who is your ideal client and what would they be attracted to? Comparisons to competitors or leaders or perhaps even a focus group to discuss the concepts.

Brand Refresh: If you are considering a refresh of your brand, we can retain the value and strength. We can also delve deeper and find out how your current client base identify with it – after all, not everyone likes change and some hand-holding may be required to get everyone on board.

Brand Guidelines: Also known as Brand Bibles, are common when introducing a new look. We put together a document for print and electronic distribution that provides rules and guides when using the new brand.

Design

Show us what you have and tell us what you want. Then we will create something different or better. Sometimes there is an opportunity to be clever, it’s all about who you are trying to connect with and how they communicate.

We have over 25 years in the design and print industry and bring this experience when coming up with ways to better represent you and your company.

Print & Promo

We use printers and promotional product suppliers to create the ideas we come up with. Thinking about branding a pen? We consider how can it be done differently so that it gets more attention than all the other complementary pens. Got an event coming up? We consider your audience, the location and what you are wanting to achieve and brand the event and space suitably.

To discuss what you have now and where you want to go, please contact our marketing team or fill in the form for our promotion idea package.

It can be difficult to know where to begin, so if you just want to talk through something, have a specific question but not sure who to address it to, fill in the form and we’ll get back to you within two working days.
