Usher Furniture Logo Design

Usher Furniture is a high end furniture retailer based in Torquay South Devon. They asked us to develop a logo for them which encompasses the high quality of the furniture, their fast delivery times and their reasonable prices.

This topic has been blogged and tweeted a plenty over the last couple of days but I felt so enraged I had to put in my two pence worth too. I doubt I’ll add anything new or thought provoking to the industry battering Mr C is getting from us logo designers but boy I’ll feel better at the end of it. (more…)

Eightyone Design Christmas Cards Design

Well, time has certainly flown, it doesn’t seem that long ago we were designing our 2008 Christmas cards! Unlike last year, we were particularly organised this year and started designing our 2009 Christmas cards in early November. We were already developing Christmas artwork for clients so whilst we were in the full festive flow (with “Jingle Bells” playing loudly and mince pies and hot chocolate on hand) we thought we’d get down to work and create the Eightyone Christmas cards.

As you can imagine the project took longer than hoped as they didn’t have any consistent form of branding and I wasn’t given sufficient information as to what was required. However, we got there in the end and the client was more than happy with the final piece. (more…)
