Today we have some exciting news at iamDamian Graphic Design; we are proud to announce our support, during 2016, of The Ipswich Hospital Charity.

For a while we have been looking for a local charity to support during 2016 and in pairing with The Ipswich Hospital Charity we are thrilled to be supporting such a worthwhile a local cause.

Damian Langan, director of iamDamian Graphic Design says “I feel it is really important that we support our local community. Previously, as an employee, I’d always been keen on encouraging my employers to adopt a local charity on a yearly basis, though ultimately back then the decision wasn’t mine to make. Now, operating iamDamian Graphic Design I’m able to make it a reality and after being in business just over a year we are excited to have adopted our first charity”.

The Ipswich Hospital Charity does valuable work in raising the level of care beyond that enabled by the hospital’s Department of Health funding.

Damian explains, “The pairing is even more special given that 38 years ago my then pregnant mother went into premature labour with me just four months into her pregnancy. The excellent team at Ipswich Hospital were able to halt the labour and buy my mother another 3 months until I was born 6-8 weeks early ahead of my due date in July. Had it not been for the work of the team at Ipswich Hospital things could have turned out very differently. Not only that, the hospital has, over more recent years provided long term care to all of my grandparents. So for me this is an especially important pairing.”

We have already been working with the charity behind the scenes leading up to today’s special announcement. In adopting The Ipswich Hospital Charity we will be carrying out creative work for them, donating 25% of our time without charge. We will also be donating time to volunteer and actively promoting their charitable events.

Kate Ashton, Head of Charity & Fundraising commented, ” The Ipswich Hospital Charity works to help our hospital deliver even better care, by going above and beyond the scope of the NHS budget, in providing additional patient comforts and facilities. These extras – some small, some large –really make a difference for patients and their families. We are delighted and grateful to have been chosen by iamDamian as Charity of the Year.  A big thank you to iamDamian Graphic Design.”

A key event for the Ipswich Hospital Charity is to be held between Friday 24th – Sunday 26th June – Their annual charity bike ride will see participants cycling the villages with hospital ward names over the three day period to raise money for the charity. The hospital are also planning a shorter bike ride route, for the less avid cyclers amongst us, on the final day, Sunday 26th June. The hospital is also looking for volunteers to help with the event during that weekend. I urge you all to lend your support in an way that you can!

You can find out more, including how to donate, take part or volunteer, by visiting http://www.ipswichhospital.nhs.uk/getinvolved/supporting-our-charity.htm or by clicking on the logo above.

It’s great to see the new signage in place for the lovely people over at Acanthus Holidays. I worked closely with Rebecca at Acanthus to refresh their brand, starting with their logo, livery and shop signage.

As part of the resfresh it was important to Rebecca that the brand evolved, building on the firm foundations already in place rather than starting with something completely different. With this in mind, following indepth chats to find out what Rebecca wanted to achieve I set about developing her existing logo into something fresh depicting strength and the heritage of her business. I pride myself on the dedicated attention each of my clients receives and continued to work cloesly with Rebecca throughout the process helping her understand colour and how it is handled across various production processes. I am thrilled Rebecca was so pleased with the results.

Check out some of the fantastic holiday homes Acanthus Holidays has to offer in Southwold and and on the Suffolk Coast over at www.southwold-holidays.co.uk/

NJ Architects new logo

It’s happy days here in the studio today as the new logo I designed for my friends over at NJ Architects has now gone live. Award winning NJ Architects wanted to update their branding with a new logo that would help them to place themselves in the ever competitive London construction market. They required their new logo to show strength and sit along side their longstanding London competitors providing a bold and robust feel which also incorporated their name. 

A logo is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, retail or B2B. An effective and well presented logo gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets. But why is a logo so important and how does it affect a small business like yours?

New logo for NJ Architects

Simply put, your logo tells your clients what they can expect from your products and services, and it differentiates you from your competitors. Your logo is derived from who you are, who you want to be and who people perceive you to be. It’s not always the case that companies realise the importance of their branding, which not only consists of your logo. Getting it right, investing thought and time into a logo that works can make a massive difference upon your success.

If you need help creating a new brand or updating your current one, then isn’t it time you get in touch! With over 12 years agency experience working on some of the country’s biggest brands and smaller local identities I can certainly help you make your mark.

So why not give me a call on 07525 760 561 and lets talk about where I can take your logo.
