Helping Catherine White kickstart her new manchester-based Pilates Company with a fresh brand identity.

Excited to launch another project this week as ‘Catherine White Pilates’ gets underway. We worked closely on all aspects of the brand design from the ground up. Focusing on the getting the core essentials right, we’ve created a new logo, business cards and fully responsive website with blog, to kick things off in style.

Full set of custom vehicle vinyl graphics designed and manufactured for White Picket’s shiny new Transit.

White Picket Maintenance wanted their new vehicle to be a seamless extension of their brand. We created a fully bespoke design for their new van, as a continuation of their identity design, down to the last detail.

We started with a wireframe from The Blueprint. The van’s details (trim, colour, badges etc.) were added to give an accurate canvas for the layout. Using existing identity elements we then created a design that focused on clean lines and clear communication, with consideration to the van’s real bodywork split lines.

We even added a custom V-card QR code, as an easy way of grabbing contact details, while also driving some additional web traffic.

All vinyl was cut and prepared in house, giving a very affordable custom solution.

The Colour Of Formula One print, summarises the 2014 Formula One World Championship – a defining and record breaking season for the Mercedes Formula One team.

Outstanding sporting achievement should be celebrated and remembered. 2014 was an incredible year for the Mercedes Formula one team. Stacked on top of inevitable Driver’s and Constructor’s championships, the team set records for most GP wins, most podiums and most 1-2 finishes in a season, while their drivers fought it out until the final race.

The main visualisation shows how the points awarded were split at each race. Different colours represent the teams. Supplementary graphics show how the Lewis vs. Nico battle unfolded through the season, along with final driver standings. This is all packaged into an elegant print so that any Mercedes, F1 and sports fans alike can remember what was a very special year for Formula One.

A new identity design to launch a small business, with quality at the core.

We’ve been busy working on a new identify design for White Picket Property Maintenance, to help turbo boost their launch campaign and lay identity foundations for the business to thrive upon. We tailored an initial package focusing on key launch marketing elements – logo, business card, flyer and a website placeholder. A quick look at how we got on below…

Some comments from White Picket, about the process:

‘Martyn has been fantastic from start to finish, he understood our needs from the beginning and appreciated what tight budget we had. He genuinely has a care for his clients and understands that every minor detail can have a huge impact, especially for us setting up a small business. He met and exceed expectations and deadlines and provided us with lots of ideas to think about for the future as well as the now. We would definitely recommend him!’

A set of 12 classic british bird illustrations, as simple geometric icons.

This set of birds icons were originally created for use in a school’s website theme as class logos, but after proving quite popular I thought you might like to see a bit more of the little chaps.

I hoped the simple geometric construction would appeal to the pupils and also allow the birds to be incorporated in other aspects of school life – drawings, puzzles etc.

Based around a consistent geometric design, bright colours and distinctive features were added to give each bird it’s own personality!

Touring around Ramsbottom restaurants, in a cycle race stylee, with this poster sized map guide.

My sister and her boyfriend are on a mission to eat their way around all the Ramsbottom restaurants in a year. They wanted a map for the wall, to help track progress. Nick’s a keen cyclist so the map got a cycle race theme – the ‘Tour De Ramsbottom Restaurants’ fit like a spanking new pair of spandex shorts.

There are a lot of restaurants in Rammy. The map focuses on the village centre, and features a mere 27 eateries! Just over 1 new restaurant every two week’s.

To track progress, the ‘Tour Stages’ restaurant list has scope to either rate each place out of 5, or keep a tally of number of visits for added value.

The map was Giclee printed at A2, on 310gsm Canson Aquarelle Rag, for a nice handcrafted finish.

The base map was custom built using the awesome Mapbox studio. A great way to design custom maps and a must for anyone with an inkling towards maps and CSS.

If you’d like your very own themed Ramsbottom Restaurants map or anything similar just drop me a line. Work can be designed and printed at all standard sizes.
