Branding & Logos

SAVVY / Branding and much more…

Friday, October 23rd, 2015


This was a fantastic project to be involved with for Health Promotion Services at Cornwall Council. After previous design work for the department the team asked us to help with the re-brand of their EFFO service to SAVVY. SAVVY is a health and wellbeing promotion website and services for young people aged 9-15 years in Cornwall. The new brand needed to appeal visually to this age band and have a positive and upbeat image. After the branding and logo identity were finalised we designed the new website and supporting printed literature that included a standards brochure, Posters, branding guide, leaflets, folders and more.

We’ll try and post more of the items we helped to design here soon.


Evolution Sports Management / Logo identity

Monday, January 12th, 2015


This was a nice project to work on to develop a logo identity for Evolution, a sports management company dealing with professional sports people. The logo needed a clean, crisp and professional look that portrayed a feeling of trust. Simplicity and flexibility is key when creating a new identify and in this case the circles that make up the top icon represent many aspects. Firstly, a stylised ‘E’ form. Secondly, the colours of the Olympic branding giving a nod to the industry of the customer base. Thirdly, the circles are aligned in an ordered manner and depict clean organisation values.

Christen at Kinesis Fitness came to Carta with help setting up her new business identity, marketing material and website. Starting with the logo identity and working from Christen’s design brief we developed concepts and colour-ways until the final solution. It was then on to the CMS website that is fully responsive and easy to update. Finally, the business card and services leaflet to tie in with the new branding. View the website here

Spearbay / Logo design

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013


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.

Cornish Ducks | Logo design

This new business start-up required a fun and clean brand. Cornish Ducks design and produce traditional rubber ducks for bath time fun that have Cornish inspired designs printed over them. Julian, founder or the company, approached us to help develop a logo that portrayed a fresh and fun company.

Kids Love Nature Logo Design

The Kids love Nature team got in touch after seeing our work online as asked if we could help with a design package for their start-up children nursery. The logo was the first project that we did for them and helped set the theme for the rest of the business literature. Stationery, promo flyers, website layout and Word® template designs followed. There was a sister logo needed also for the Children’s Nature Nursery which was to follow the same branding style.

BOHO Cornwall logo design

BOHO Cornwall approached Carta to help design the identity for their new 5 star soulful living holiday accommodation business. After an initial meeting with owners Tom and Maya, to discuss the business and its values, they provided me with a fantastic brief to work from. The final outcome is a reflection of this brief – calm, modern, high quality and balanced. The two ‘O’s represent the sunrises and sunsets that can be experienced at the business location on the far southwest coast of Cornwall. A website design and other marketing material are to follow soon for BOHO Cornwall.

The Little Knit Kit Company logo

Here is the new logo Carta designed for The Little Knit Kit Company. Julie came to Carta to commission the logo after seeing our work online. This final logo is a combination of two other initial concepts shown to Julie. we feel it works really well to promote what the company offers its customers. The added hand-drawn grey dots and swooshes fill the empty gaps and cement the wording to the graphic elements.

Oliver Stacey / Branding

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

A logo identity for yacht designer Oliver Stacey. The brief was to design an identity that was clean, simple and fitting with the industry. The final idea of combining Oliver’s initials was inspired by the flowing and balanced lines that appear in his own boat designs. The identity elements can be repositioned into a number of different configurations to fit the application it’s indented for.

Storm in a Teacup logo

Logo design for china hire company ‘Storm in a Teacup’ in Porthleven, Cornwall. The client wanted a classic, clean look but with a modern feel still. The logo had to be designed so that it could easily be applied to many differing future applications. The muted colour scheme adds to the classic feel along with the Trajan typeface. A website design for ‘Storm in a Teacup’ is currently being undertaken by Carta.
