Stonetec Ltd, Edinburgh. Preserving Scotlands Heritage

Currently building a website for Stonetec Ltd based in Edinburgh. They provide a comprehensive range of building restoration services and repair work. They carry out Stone Masonry, Leadwork, Slating, Flat roofing, Joinery and Stone decorating. They carry out repair projects on Class A, B and C listed buildings, many of which have local authority statutory repair orders. Most of their tradesmen hold Gold Heritage Skills Cards and they operate a 100% CSCS accredited workforce. In my opinion Stonetec do some first class stonework and masonry restoration. They now have a website that can raise their online profile.


Local brand goes national

A great example of a local brand going national is the organic Milk company Yeo Valley Milk . They have recently created a very cool advert featuring rapping young farmers. Previously they have been known mainly in Somerset, but they have recently gone national. Business leaders have always said that the small companies of today become the corporations of tomorrow. I think Yeo Valley have a strong brand image and we will see more of their products.

Party Invites

I seem to be designing a lot of invites at the moment... Can't complaint though.. its all good!!






Bit of Vanity Doesn't hurt too much...

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the new Scotlandshop website, which is very good and should really raise the profile of their brand. The new models and locations are great, just what the site needed, but I was pleased to see that some of the older photos, taken by YID Photography, a year or so are still being used. Keep the Scotland flag flying!!

Pictograms

Part of the branding work for Blair Drummond Safari Park involved the design and implementation of over 40 animal information signs. For this project, we also set up a "picto-gram" style of diagrams, based around a "Did you know" theme. These diagrams, along with other fast facts were created to make otherwise complicated information more easily understood.
