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.

Justin Duance / Graphic Design

Thursday, October 31st, 2013


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.

Louise Parry Goldsmith / Leaflet Design

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013


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.

Xpression / Skoda cup wrap design

Sunday, December 9th, 2012


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.

Children’s Nature Nursery / Leaflet Design

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

This was a follow on design form The Kids Love Nature Team for their Nature Nursery business. They needed an information leaflet drop to go out to residents within the local area to promote the opening of the new nursery. We kept the fun natural look flowing through the design to really focus the concept of the nursery’s different approach to learning.

poppy treffry courses flyer design

Poppy wanted to advertise her next stitching courses with a striking visual graphic that could be used on a postcard but also on her website and in advertising. It was an open brief but with a hint to the illustration style. A very enjoyable project indeed.

Ecademy Press / Book Design

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Ecademy asked if I could help design another book for them for this social media and SEO business book. The main title is called ‘Fusion’ and relates to the importance of the various marketing tools working together as one. The ‘n’ of fusion made a perfect magnet shape which gives a strong visual element and works with the underlying message of the book.

Ecademy Press book design

A book cover and text design for a business help book. With the title being so strong and simple I thought it should be dominant in the design. A play on the word ‘stupid’ by flipping the d highlights the fact that we make mistakes.

Justin Duance / Brochure Design

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

This is the second brochure I’ve designed for Justin. This time Justin wanted a more utilitarian / traditional feel; something that harked back to the old packaging boxes of the 30′s. After liaising with Headland Printers on various paper swatches we went for a pulpboard cover and 100% recycled Cyclus inner pages. Cyclus is an off-white and has a nice coloured fleck to it. A6 in size meant it could be posted in Justin’s smallest jiffy bag size. The brochure is finished with a new square stitched spine to give it a book feel.

Ecademy Press / Book Design

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

This is the eleventh book design I have produced for Ecademy Press and the second for the Author, Nigel Vardy. Nigel is a fantastic guy and client to work with. Once again, he gave me free reign on the design and feel for the book. For some inspiration I always read a few chapters of the manuscript. I wanted to put across the adventure aspect and the British climbing record that was made by Nigel in the book. Keeping to a patriotic palette of red and blue and tilting the title by 45 degrees to make a mountain peak shape. The dotted lines on the cover also outline the elevations of each peak climbed by Nigel in the book. You can get your copy here.
