The importance of good branding…

When looking for a brand design, it’s easy to go to a clip art gallery and obtain a cheap, off-the-shelf, run-of-the-mill graphic, but it won’t stand out from the crowd or truly reflect your company’s image. That’s why it’s key to finding yourself a professional illustrator who can provide you with your very own unique look. A professional illustrator/brand designer will ensure that your brand design/logo can be used on any media and that it will stand the test of time, but most importantly, it will be a design that shouts volumes about your business and grabs the attention of the clients you hope to attract!

So why choose us as your designer?

When picking a brand designer or illustrator, it’s important that they are in tune with your business and want to help it succeed. We work to meet your needs by researching your company’s history and values to ensure we capture the true feel for what you stand for and what it is you’re looking to achieve with your branding. So whether your business requires an illustration of a plumber called Pete, a portrait of your pets, or simply a quirky banana… we can draw, create and provide you with anything you need… The bigger the challenge, the better!

Just remember, the first impression usually turns out to be the longest-lasting impression.

Getting illustrations right can sometimes be a tricky and complex job, but this is our profession, and we are here to help you every step of the way! Be sure to check out our References page to see what our clients have had to say about the illustrations we have created for them.

As authors, when we write stories, we all generally have something in mind for the illustrations. So for you to get the best out of our book creation journey, we ask for as much information as possible from the outset, including providing us with a project brief and filling in a checklist containing several elements that are important to the book’s completion, such as any specifics regarding the characters or scenes in the book. This information helps us immensely in the early stages when creating the layout, initial typesetting and sketches for the illustrations.
