We can work with you to create an original brand, or develop your existing identity, to showcase your organisation's personality.
We start by understanding your organisation’s qualities, values and aspirations. From here, we develop a complementary visual style that sets the tone for the practical assets like the logo, colour scheme and font.
We assemble these assets, along with design guidelines, into a brand pack.
Brand guidelines package
Brand guidelines are important. A cohesive brand – where all assets, materials and publications are consistent – will project a professional, trustworthy and effective image. By streamlining the design process, a small investment initially can save time and money in the long run. We have worked with several clients to create brand identities from scratch, or to formalise an existing brand into a set of guidelines
To create brand guidelines, we audit your existing assets and collateral, identify where the brand is and is not working, and fill any gaps.
We deliver a brand pack, made up of all assets and a clear, concise and user-friendly brand guidelines document.
Contact us to find out how we can help you:
We produce merchandise, marketing materials, event designs, data visualisation and publications that look great and help communicate a specific message to an audience, and generating a behaviour or response. Our design portfolio
is broad, spanning across billboards and beermats, packaging and parachutes, identities and infographics, annual reports and rubber wristbands.
Things for the screen
We also work on web design, web banners, e-newsletters and animated gifs. If you need a social media icon or a web banner campaign, we can help. We deliver website designs that are responsive, informed, market driven, dynamic, usable and on-brand.
This is about making a space feel right. We use graphics, signage, wayfinding and layout to help bring life and order into work spaces.
If you need photography to fill gaps in your photo library, we can commission original photography, and manage the photo shoot, or source photography from stock libraries.
THE THIRD SECTOR SPECIALISTS
Great Design for great causes
We have worked in-house and as a consultant for third sector organizations for over 10 years. So we get it.
Our insider knowledge has given us a unique insight into the specific challenges our third sector clients face.
We know that maintaining a brand across multiple regional offices can be tricky, that budgets are tight and that stakeholders may have strong and opposing opinions. So we have developed strategies and ideas to overcome these difficulties, and capitalise on the many advantages these organisations have.

streamline the publications process
We can audit your publication, design and branding processes and offer advice on cost effective methods to make your brand work harder for you.
Reach your audiences
Charities have to communicate with different audiences: stakeholders, potential donors, major donors, funds and trusts, government, fundraisers, volunteers, staff and service users. We have experience of producing materials to appeal to all of these audiences, from fundraising bids to major donor packs, direct mail to office redesigns.
Cohesive, consistent branding will give your organisation to credibility. But charities also need flexibility. We offer user-friendly, on-brand designed templates that you can edit yourself in-house. Our online template service gives users across multiple access to templates; they can edit images and copy, but not alter the overall design.
What Our Clients Say
Lucie understands your requirements fully and will often produce artwork which is much more effective than what you had in mind. Lucie is organised, works in a methodical manner and is also very good at asking the right questions.
Nila Patel | Victim Support
The vibrant colours and bold branding give the entire hostel a really animated feel. I especially loved the branding above each of the bunks. SoHostel & Lucie got it spot on!
Review in www.thehostelgirl.com
Lucie did a fab job with the recent Ladbrokes creatives. She was able to turn the designs around really quick and at a very reasonable price! [Ladbrokes] love the overall look.
Bianca Keeble | Shackleton PR
A creative and intelligent approach to design; translating our somewhat sketchy brief into a design that we are very excited about.
Tina Hatch | Glenveagh Associates
Lucie was pro-active, creative, reliable and very helpful, providing useful advice well beyond the terms of her initial brief. Her professionalism and excellent communication skills made the whole experience both straightforward and satisfying. I would definitely use her services again.Sean Whyte | Clinical Director, Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist and Honorary Senior Lecturer
Lucie has always displayed focus, determination and self-initiative, attention to detail and ability to understand our brand values. Her attention to detail and ability to understand our brand values and image were central to the success of Kayu's exhibition at London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.
Jamie Lim | KAYU
I’ve worked with Lucie on several unique projects now and she continues to impress me. She is clearly talented - that is evident from her portfolio - but the level of service she has provided certainly exceeded our previous designers. She is pro-active in her ideas, generous with her advice (even outside of specific projects) and extremely reliable.
Simon Scriver | Helping Good Charities Do Better Fundraising
Lucie is a great designer to work with, her ideas are great, she always takes great care with understanding the brief and her attention to detail is excellent. In short, I couldn’t recommend her more, its been the easiest and most productive designer relationship we have had to date.
Stuart Waplington | Managing Director theprintspace
Lucie really ‘got’ us. The type and size of her organisation was a perfect fit for us, as she had enormous experience, but her organisation was small enough to really allow for a personal service and a real sense of intimacy.
