experienced in delivering versatile, considered, design
Design isn’t just adding the latest bells and whistles; design is about creating the right rapport between you and your audience. That means taking the time to understand both you and your business to get the right brief from you, in order to get the right messages to your audience.
Offering a wide range of skills and experience of exploiting the design capabilities – from print to web – means that you can be sure of an effective creative solution, whatever your business need. Working with dedicated associates whose skills range from PR, marketing and writing to building sites where you manage the day-to-day content, means that you get a complete solution.
I believe design makes a difference, not just as visual communication, but to the bottom line.
creative communication creating visual footprints
I love to design logos for new companies, products or services, or refreshing a current logo, with a nip and tuck here and there, maybe a revised colour palette, or a tweak to the house font. Reviewing your current brand / identity is especially important if you are looking to re-position yourself, helping articulate the new you with an updated ‘look and feel’, purpose statement or strap line.
It’s not rocket science, it is logic, and sometimes you need a fresh mind to help you with the website structure; identifying user journeys of your website, or perhaps just to translate your new brand into an intuitive web presence. You might need a bespoke coded website or, simply a WordPress sites (like this one) – if you’d like to be in complete control.
You have a logo, new or old, and you have your branding. Make that work hard for you where it meets your customers – rolling-out the design onto stationery, PowerPoint and Word templates or a new brochure, folder, leaflet, journal, product packaging – or perhaps exhibition panels. Don’t forget, it’s not just about the look, carefully written copy will demonstrate that you understand your customers and their needs.

We work on the premise that ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,’ with complementary skills, experience and capabilities. So we come together as a ‘virtual team’ of two, three, or more when required, bringing in further expertise (photographers, information architects, website builders) when necessary. At lelo you can find more detail on the long-standing creative relationship of Angie and Judi, who have particular expertise in designing campaigns to attract and recruit graduates – Baker Hughes being their most recent client.

Each project is different. Each client is different. We pride ourselves on being realistic in our projections and honest in our reporting. And our policy is to issue invoices only for time incurred on a project. Sound fair?
