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.

Along with the logo designs, leaflet and other literature, Carta also undertook the design of the Kids Love Nature website. We kept the same fun and nature inspired look for brand consistency as in the other material. The design needed to be colourful, clear and easy to navigate around. The footer element features a field, trees and clouds which gives a feel of space and the outdoors which is what the Nature Nursery model is based on. The website design was provided as a layered Photoshop file for easy implementation by the web developer who built the final website.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
