Design for Print
Design for Print
From a business card to an annual report and everything in-between! Design for print is second nature to us, with literally tens of years of experience at the sharp end designing innovative and appealing graphics.
From the initial brief you can be assured we will have a good understanding of what you require. No half baked ideas that just won't fit or even ideas way beyond the budget.
Design for print has to have that “big hook”!.
Logo and Identity
Logo and Identity
Logo design or 'corporate identity' as some would say can be best explained as image building by visually representing a company's individuality. It portrays an image of how the company would like to be viewed. From stationery and advertising through to signs and vehicle liveries, all have to be considered when designing a logo.
A logo design may have to appear not just in colour but black only too. Whatever the brief you can be assured our experience and attention to detail will create a look that represents your company and projects it forward into the future.
With many years experience in graphic design our team have seen every trick in the book to get you noticed. It is this same experience we offer to our clients in terms of marketing - ideas, know-how and cost effective routes to get you noticed.
ALL THE PIECES YOU NEED!
We can help with...
- Identity & corporate look to all items of literature
- Advertising as print or web based
- Packaging design and print
- Email marketing design and implementation
- Website design and construction including online purchasing or database interaction
- Website marketing & search engine optimisation
- Direct mail with address sourcing and postage discount dispatch
We all get a little tired with the mailers coming through the door but we do all look at them! So, if you cannot beat them, then join them. We have many years experience in this area and can help advise you if you're fresh to it. From designing the piece to give impact and 'openability' to addressing direct on to the piece or labelling to post office sorting and set up. The Royal Mail offer discounts on bulk mailing and even a 3rd class service so the postage costs are very reasonable. Call us to find out more on how you can get involved with direct mailing.
Digital photography has made huge strides in recent years. When the first digital cameras arrived they were extremely expensive and gave poor quality results. With the new breed of cameras things have come a long way. Our Nikon digital camera outfit is top of the range, pin sharp and with a whole host of features that enable us to take pictures up to A4 size at a full print quality. Being able to see and magnify the results of any captured picture immediately has taken a lot of the mystic and guess work out of conventional photography. Coupled with the fact that the image is downloaded straight to the computer without the need for the further expense of processing or scanning, its easy to see why digital photography has taken over as quick as it has. Also as you can see on our re-touching page, from where we start to where we end up is often a world away.
So if you require a quick shot for a brochure or your website please contact us, we're sure you'll find the rate quite refreshing. Highlighting and enhancing pictures comes as standard when we take your pictures.
Not so many years ago altering a picture in the ways we do today was either impossible or just too cost prohibitive to contemplate. Now the possibilities are endless, so we'll just let the pictures do the talking here...
As designers it goes without saying that from the initial brief you can be assured your site will look and feel good. But design is only the start of it, with the complexity of websites and the host features they may include our eye is constantly on the speed factor. Even with broadband a viewer does not want to wait more than a few seconds, if not instantly for a page to download. With this in mind optimisation is our keyword, good looking, easy to follow and quick responding websites are what we produce. We even include SEO (search engine optimisation) to help Google catalogue your website.
Many features can be included within a website to make a difference including...
- Online Purchasing
- Content Management (self editing)
- Database Interaction
- Audio & Video
- Flash elements
- Return forms via Email
We also offer...
- Extended SEO & SEM (search engine marketing)
- Domain name search and purchase
- Hosting of websites with limitless email at very competitive rates.
As the name implies these types of websites are very 'flash'. Animation, movement and sound all play a key role in a flash website. Flash websites are also generally expensive to produce due to the work involved in the construction. iDesign may be able to help here with one of a number of our standard templates. Pictures and details can be changed to your specific information. A word of warning though, flash websites are notoriously difficult for search engines to catalogue thus resulting in a poor search engine placement. If search engine optimisation and marketing is a key factor for your website then forget a 'total' flash website. Alternatively if you like flash elements then these can be built-in to a standard type website that will not upset search engine placement.
