  • Logo Design

    Client web logo

    Vector based Logo design to reflect your business idea and brand.

    Logo design is more than getting a graphic designer to come up with a icon to match your idea. There are many decisions to take and each must have the business requirements in mind. It is not a quick process and a well designed logo will embody the look feel and business values which are immeadiately accessable to the customer.

    We hear of Logos available on the internet for instant download for a fixed price perhaps for £150? BUT, ask yourself the question does this really provide a unique icon and identifier for your business, will the colours be accurate, will it work on my required document shapes, how will it work on a B&W piece of artwork? Does it look correct on print and Web. Are there a set of logos in the family in all the required formats and sizes? Do I have full rights of usage or will it be modified sligtly and be re-sold to another business.

    Harlequin Creative look at the logo from the business requirement position and when the design brief has been clarified, the fonts needed and the core values of the business identified, then and only then, will we proceed to offer suggestions to meet our clients need.

    We strongly recommend careful consideration before ploughing in. The graphic design and logo is an output generated after a lot of work and business considerations. Only then will we engage to design a graphic and prepare visuals for consideration, this process is carefully manged to completion.

    Can we produce a Logo for a couple of hundred pounds... possibly, do we choose from a stock set? No.

  • Plan your strategy

    Strategic Marketing, Not guess work.

    Don't leave your marketing to chance, take a strategic aproach and focus on you're objectives, failing to plan is planning to fail.

    The starting point for any business is having a vision, companies having good direction, a five year plan and so on and so forth, well this isn't just some coincidence that people have found intersting or fun, it's a requirement no matter how large or small your business is. How can you take your business, your life, or even the next journey if you don't know where you are going, or more importantly, first, where are you are starting from and where do you want to go. Roaming may be fun when on holiday but its not for business.

    Establishing the appropriate focus for your marketing efforts is vital if you are to meet challenging objectives. The benefits of a clear, unambiguous strategy is the alignment of people, who will know the direction you wish to travel - the target customers and key sub-groups you wish to reach; the positioning and customer benefits of your products and services and the targets and measures that will allow you to determine your progress.

    This is not something a business can think about once and then park thinking its been done, careful consideration of a multitude of factors need to be taken into account and will inevitably, at some point, conspire against the business if not managed correctly. Continuous review and re-direction is often needed, change comes quickly and a business must change with it to survive and flourish.

    The successful business has a clear plan, direction and an end game or place where it wants or requires, to get to, or achieve.

    Having the vision is essential, BUT, achieving that vision takes a methodical planned approach which is often best nurtured and facilitated by skilled practitioners. Big companies often have much of the skills in house but still find the need to get assistance from an outside team to get alignment and agreement. Once the whole team are in accord, with the same vision carefuly communicated and documented, progress can often be swift and impressive.

    Nothing in life or business is guaranteed but risk can be reduced to acceptable levels and growth maintained. Take time to work on your business, not just in the business.

    If your business has grown and needs that next step up to fulfill the vision, Your business can benefit from our extensive experience in developing strategic marketing plans for all sizes of business. Harlequin Creative can help you to address the important issues facing your marketing strategy such as:
