At ELK Marketing we work as a graphic designer for many clients in Yorkshire and further afield. Graphic design covers a number of different fields whether it is graphic design for print or digital graphic design. It’s fair to say that graphic design in Yorkshire is much the same as graphic design anywhere else – it’s rare that we can justify incorporating a reference to Geoffrey Boycott or Yorkshire curd tarts (although it’s a challenge we’re up for if you’re interested!) We’ve worked with small startups to recognised international brands – here is a sample of some of our work.
Simpatico Communications Ltd: Branding, graphic design, website design
Simpatico is a new Yorkshire company providing mobile phones for business. We were tasked with creating a brand identity the company, which needed to communicate the company’s ethos – professional but also honest, approachable and ‘nice’. The logo suggests a mobile phone signal, with a hidden ‘S’ for Simpatico in the middle.
As well as the logo, the branding includes cartoon characters which emphasise the fun, friendly nature of the brand. The letterhead footer uses the following graphic:
These graphics are also used in banner stands, business cards, and mailers. Here’s the phone shaped folded mailer which we did – exactly the size of an iphone 7, with a mockup of a Google search screen, opening up to show information about the company:
Mulberry Residential: Branding, graphic design
We developed a new logo and identity for this local Yorkshire estate agent. The desire was to create a simple, elegant logo which suggested a high end service:
As well as for sale boards, we also designed a house shaped flyer and a series of printed and digital adverts. The one below was a digital ad for Facebook:
Andrew’s Walks: Website Design
It’s often the case with graphic design that less is more. This is especially true when you are working with really strong photography – which is so stunning that too many other design elements would be distracting. Andrew Locking asked us to convert a static website, with over 700 pages and 25,000 images, to a WordPress website with a clean, simple design. We wrote scripts to port the data across, and designed a site which let Andrew’s beautiful photographs do the talking:
Triumph Motorcycles: Brochure design, elearning website design
We’re proud to have worked with a company like Triumph for the past 5 years. In that time we’ve worked on brochures to assist dealerships in selling bikes, and an elearning site in 9 languages to ensure brand knowledge, product knowledge and sales and aftersales skills. Working with a major international brand means that all our graphic design work has to comply with detailed branding guidelines – so if you already have a detailed guide then we’re happy to work with that.
