Design for your brand, not against it

There are huge amounts of resources out there. Below are just a few that I have highlighted. When presenting your brand, your business, its services and products to your clients/customers you want to make the best impression possible. That means designing, or having someone design, images and messages that work fully and properly for you. There are always new design styles running around. I talked recently a lot about watercolour styles and the brush calligraphy scripts that go with it so well. Coming through now as well is a very retro return using decorative yet grungey fonts and vintage style photographic images and textures.
