pt-14-macbook

This is the brand new website design for Poppy Treffry Ltd that Carta produced in late 2014. This was a total ground up re-design implementing a more contemporary airy feel. The design layout had to be flexible enough to work responsively on PC, tablet and smartphone screens. We worked alongside the web developers Inspired Development in Bodmin who build the website from the designs we produced. We are very proud of the outcome.

pt-newsletter

This is a newly updated e-newsletter template campaign design for Poppy Treffry Ltd to send news and offers direct to her mailing list subscribers. This design is a simplified version of her new website design that Carta designed earlier this quarter.

Emmas Fabric Studio Open Day Poster Design

Poster Design to promote the Emma’s Fabric Studio Open Day. The brief was to be bright, fun and in keeping with the company branding.

Spearbay / Logo design

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

spearbay-logo-625

Spearbay are a new online start-up business based in Penzance. They contacted Carta for help with their company logo design. We worked together to develop an identity that would compete in the fishing industry with it’s competitors. The identity needed to be simple, bold and have an element of ‘does what it says on the tin’ to explain itself visually. Using the negative space created by the font and the ‘P’ as grip and trigger, we were able to subtly incorporate a speargun silhouette into the company name. The logo also needed to be used in various marketing situation from embroidery to stickers in solid, negative, colour and monotone configurations. www.spearbay.co.uk

jd-care-pack

Justin returned to work with us to help him produce his new packaging. Whilst Justin undertook sourcing the box element we concentrated on the care pack and leaflet that would sit inside along with the brochure we had already produced for Justin last year. The care pack is printed onto a C8 manilla envelope, like the old school money envelopes, and the care leaflet sits within along with the metal scourer and cleaning cloth.

Emma’s Fabric Studio / website design

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

efs-website

Emma contacted us after seeing examples of our website design online. She liked our style of work and we liked her product and we hit it off from our first phone call. This is the second incarnation of Emma’s Fabric Studio’s website after the first one we did quickly outgrew it’s cababilities with Emma’s rapid growth of products and respective sales. This new design was built on the Magento system and is much better equipped and handling thousands of items for sale. We worked alongside illustrator Julene Harrison to design the header and footer cut-outs. These then formed Emma’s new logo and other branding elements. Emma and us here at Carta will continue to work together to update the graphical side of the website on a regular basis to keep it fresh.

Louise Parry Goldsmith / Leaflet Design

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

louise-parry-leaflet

Louise contacted Carta after seeing some design work we had produced for LoCo Glass, one off her business neighbours, in Cirencester. The brief was to produce a simple leaflet card that could be mailed to existing customers. The cover mimics the signature design style of Louise’s rings with a band across the centre. We chose a standard A5 size but folded this lengthways to make a tall elegant shape.

Poppy Treffry / new website design

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

poppy-website

Poppy again invited Carta to work with her to produce new retail and trade website designs for the business. The website is based on a new platform called Magento. This meant all the technical side was handled by them whilst we undertook the design. We agreed that we didn’t want a radical change in ‘feel’ as the brand and design of the original website had been received so well. A focus on more social media presence and interaction with the viewer was key so we broke the layout into clear sections of information, selling, social and user integration.

Xpression / Skoda cup wrap design

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

skoda-cup-wrap-625

Here was an unusual design request for Carta to solve. Xpression, working on behalf of ŠKODA UK, needed to re-brand standard disposable paper cups for the promotional use at The Tour of Britain cycle race. To manufacture new cup designs would have required a very large minimum print run and would have led to large amounts of wasted cups and expense. So, we engineered a pre-printed design wrap to slip over the standard cups. They simply lock together at a each end, slide up the cup and but up against the top lip.

Cornish Ducks | Logo design

cornish-ducks-logo
