Graphic Design & Branding

From logo designs to exhibition stands and everything in between, there isn't much we haven't designed over the years. We always meet or talk with a new client to get a good understanding for their business, organisation or product. This helps us capture the ethos, style and personality for the job in hand and make it truly bespoke for each client.

Some of the key areas Carta can help with…

  • Branding and logo identity design
  • Brochures, catalogues, mailers, flyers and stationery
  • Published book design 
  • Posters, exhibition panels, stands and pop-ups
  • Point of Sale (P.O.S)

Email campaigns & Social Media Growth

It's important to regularly keep in touch with your customers. An email marketing campaign is a cost effective, visually rich and quick tool to get your latest news and offers to your customers. We use MailChimp to design, build and send our client's campaigns. Apart from the great price (it can be free), you can monitor the open responses, visitor stats and it's responsive ready.

Social media is a fantastic way to help sell your products to your audience. This is especially true if you are selling direct to the public. We can help you interact better with and grow your audience.

Print handling

In the past, we've been lucky enough to work in a large design and print studio. Seeing how a design goes from screen to plate to a finished bound item gives you a valuable knowledge that most designers do not experience. We use established and reliable local & national printing companies to strike the best balance on quality, turn-around and price. We provide precise quotations for printing your designs and can advise you if you are unsure of the best paper stock, ink or format.

Some of the key areas Carta can help with…

  • FSC Certified Printers
  • Litho printing
  • Digital printing
  • Stationery, brochures, flyers, postcards, posters + more
  • Large format printing for exhibition stands or banner
