This season we went even more minimal with a ‘no text’ front cover for the mail-out SS15 Range catalogue. The focus was to have a bit of intrigue and wonder as to what was within. The theme was ‘A Great British Seaside Holiday’ and was staged brilliantly. It begs you to open it! You can see all 16 pages of the A5 landscape catalogue below. Local photographer Matt Jessop did a great job of the photo shoot on the day in St Ives.
This was a great project to work on for our existing client. Christian needed a statement piece of literature to showcase his bespoke furniture to public sector customers. With such a high quality range of photography available we decided on a 210 x 210mm format to give the best viewing experience whilst keeping it a nice size in the hand. ‘Less is more’ was the order of the day to let the images do the talking. 16 pages in total, with matt lamination to cover. We also organised and handled the print and delivery of the final brochure.
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.

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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
