unify your design, business – new portfolio

Unify your design styles across the publishing divide – print, video, website, digital publishing, social media …

There is nothing worse for any business, small or large, than your marketing and branding presenting a hodhe podge of wildly different campaigns, styles and apporaches. Your image works best if it is solidly within the same vein across all channels. If your print says one thing, your website another, your digital publishing something else, your clients, customers and targets will take you for a disorganised mess, without any clear message. Make it clear who and what you are! The first major thing to do is to have the design style of your of your output complement each other. Have the palette, typography and icons generally agree with each other.

It is now an easy task to show real uniformity in all of your marketing content – from print to video, not forgetting online content in general.

There are also a raft of current and vibrant ideas for the design and style of any such content. Websites, video and print design have their examples of retro, vintage, minimal, grunge, big photo, distressed and hybrids using elements of watercolour flavours, wood, metal, block colours, palettes ranging from bold uses of colour in geometrics through to subdued and earthy tones, from minimal to floral and vintage.

Throw something distinct into the mix and give your audience something which will not only interest and engage them but leave them with something memorable. Add something of storyline and you have the foundations for real engagement for a long time to come.
