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 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.
2011 was a busy year for us at Carta. We designed, built and launched 11 websites, designed 7 logo identities, shot 18 photoshoots, sent 43 e-newsletter campaigns and notched up a total of 339 new jobs in the last 12 months. So, with all that, there hasn’t been a single quiet patch to mention. We’re back from the Christmas break and raring to go.
Thank you to all of our customers for your business in 2011. We hope you have a successful 2012.

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.
This is a complete redesign and build of Sapience’s website. Carta has worked with Sapience since it was established in 2005 and produced their first website. The time came for a new look and new functionality for the website to meet with the expansion of the business. Continuing with the same strong branding and colours we set about making the site easier to read and navigate. We integrated the cartoon imagery that is used in Sapience’s advertising, to give a visual to each area of expertise that they provide to clients. WordPress has been used to allow an integrated blog and CMS for easy online updating.

Amalwhidden Farm Coarse Fishery has recently been reopened after extensive landscaping and restocking of new fish. The owners, Neil and Julia Hodder, wanted to promote the business via traditional printed material as well as online. We designed a DL sized folded leaflet to be used in advertising racks in local B&Bs, Hotels and Tourist information stands. We then moved on to the website. The requirements were to make it family friendly and welcoming. I also illustrated a map of the ponds and lake to show the features and fishing peg positions. The website is WordPress built so that it can be quickly and easily updated by the Julia and Neil from any PC with internet connection.

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.
