Castle Hill Trust (Launched 19 October 2017)
Logo for Castle Hill Trust, a CIO - Charitable Incorporated Organisation - registered with the Charity Commission. The charities 'objectives' are 'for the public benefit, to advance education in the local community by delivering classes and workshops for people of all abilities, ages and income levels so that they can learn and interact, and individual capabilities, competencies, skills and understanding can be developed'.
The rooms of this 18th Century grade II Listed Building can also be hired for private functions. This is reflected in the creation of a subsidiary logo, The Settlement at Castle Hill Community Hub, designed around a dolls house, to suggest the children's activities on offer, as well as other activities available to the local community - to which its doors are always open.
Westwood - The B&B with a view
Branding designed to reflect the location of Westwood, the Bed and Breakfast with a view, overlooking a romantic three-arched bridge across the river Derwent, combined with the view across to the lovely old church of St. Bridget's with Lake District mountains behind. Only 5 miles from the Solway Coast and 16 miles from Keswick, Westwood is a mere 3 miles from the delightful gem town of Cockermouth. Energetic visitors can even walk into town along a footpath by the river.
We are amazed and delighted at your creation - we installed it on the website and it looks fantastic. We have also put it into word and printed it out as a letterhead - the colours look good and at the same time unusual for such a logo and therefore more memorable. We have so enjoyed the process of working with you and can also imagine taking pleasure in working with you further in the future. Thank you for your time, care and brilliance.

The Views Branding
The elevated position of The Views holiday apartments give the Lake District visitor an unrivaled near panoramic view of the town of Keswick and surrounding Lake District fells, as captured in this illustration. As well as being used on the company website, this branding image was created at exact postcard proportion to provide another marketing tool by which the visitor can help to generate more visitors by simply completing the postcard and posting to friends at home. A series of six limited edition prints, each showing a different view from each apartment window, is currently being created.
I like what you’ve done with the balcony image so much that I’d like you to do some more in a similar style.

The Maryport Educational Settlement
This Charitable trust, the face of local community life since the 1950’s, decided its own image needed a face lift - with one aim: to reach out further to those people who could benefit from its services. Launched in 2012, this logo features the windows (of the 1780 listed building) transformed into the faces and clothing of children holding paint brushes. This, together with the use of primary colours, symbolises the BBC Children in Need funded art and craft base projects held at the centre. The outer walls and roof of the house enclosing the children, suggests the secure environment in which the activities are offered.
Our new logo reinforces our mission statement: Individuals and communities will grow and be transformed by adaptable and flexible involvement in the creative and environmental activities which we will provide.

This Marque needed to reflect the personality and the emotional benefits of Kent for the tourist. The distinctive countryside, with its oast houses, orchards and formal gardens, contrasting with the attractions of the maritime coast, provided just the imagery to create this Marque, each graphic illustration fitting perfectly against the lower letter shapes. The colours also reflected the heritage of these destinations and attractions, to give Kent an overall, warm feel, and suggesting that the county is a captivating destination.
Just to say a big thank you for the exceptionally fine work that you have done on the new Kent Branding.

Branding for ‘England’
This example of a high profile design was seen by millions of people around the world.
The central lower case letters of the word ‘England’ were developed into the stylised shape of a crown - an emblem associated with England in the minds of overseas visitors. Around this central theme, graphics were added in a variety of colours to suggest landscape, seascape and a hint of fun in the form of fireworks and roller coasters. Oil pastels were used to draw these images to give a real feeling of excitement - a message so important to convey in tourism branding. This new promotional logo and ‘name style’ was used by the board in its worldwide efforts to put England firmly on the map as a tourist destination for overseas visitors.
