branding and

logo design

Let’s start with your logo.

It is your business’s signature and it should be for life, so we’ll make sure it’s an effective one.


It must be simple, and uniquely recognizable.

Colour is very important, but it must also translate well into grey scale (black and white).

Also consider ‘embroidery-friendly’ logos for apparel.


It is the first step in branding your visual corporate image, and its look and feel will be reflected in all your graphics on the web and in print.


  • text logos, text-image logos, image logos
  • corporate identity packages
  • brand and company naming
  • visual identity standards

and mobile

Give your customers the convenience of shopping at your place in the comfort of their living room or on their phones.
When your customers need you, we’ll make sure they can find you. Your website must appear on the first page, at the top, when they search for your service on the web. We use our search engine optimization (SEO) skills for that.

Furthermore, immediately visible on the search page, must be your business description and phone number, without having to click any further.

Check to see how many others have that feature!

Your customers will appreciate it!


Never underestimate the power of social media for marketing exposure and ease of use for you and your customers.

We’ll set you up on Facebook, the biggest social database in the world.

And since so many today use mobile devices, all our sites are fully responsive to suit mobiles, tablets as well as large screens.


We can empower you to sell anything from your website. We will design a shopping cart so you can ad, edit or delete your products yourself.  We can also cross sale from your website to your facebook account!


Call us today to start your website.

It can be a simple one-pager, or very complex and interactive:

graphic design

and print

A well designed business card costs the same to print as a poorly designed one.

Business cards now come in formats like never before - square, linen, double sided, extra thick, rounded corners, raised text…

This is where you can stand out for minimal cost.

And don’t forget the real estate on the backside

to list your products and services.


Ads are quite costly, whether on-line, in a magazine or on a billboard.

This is an area where you should have great graphics with well thought-out wording.


On-demand printing is available for hats, t-shirts, tote bags, watches, also buttons, signage, wall art, calendars and many useful items… limitless avenues for your lovely logo!
