Simantov Newsletters - a showcase of 4

Every time we do one of our own newsletters, it’s a huge team effort and requires a combination of our planning, concept, illustration, writing, coding, formatting, and attention to detail skills. One of our clients is Simantov, and having seen how we do ours, decided they would like us to take care of theirs too! So far, we have done four, and we love them. Below are the headers and the footers and links to the full versions. Enjoy!

Rosh Hashana

We have been working hard on our newsletter, as we always do. And it’s ready to send! In this one the illustration was done by Tina and Amy worked on the graphics for the rest of the newsletter. Other newsletters often feature illustration work by Tamlyn – who drew our owls! Those of you who dont subscribe, you’re missing out! We almost always do special offers, games and prizes. Our latest creation involves a theme – “Make Do and Mend” which goes with the whole “January Austerity” feeling. No point in being frivolous and overly extravagent – it’s just not the done thing! So, in our newsletter we have listed “8 free or almost free ways to improve your presence online.” We do like the number 8!

We also like the number 3 – so watch out for the 3 offers within the newsletter.

I just emailed to say I love you – Our February newsletter

With February being the month of love we decided what better way to spread a little love amongst those nearest and dearest to us than through one of our special TLD newsletters! A lot of love and effort always goes into them and this one is no different.

From stories about French boys, Make My Lunch and special branded cupcakes…

Make My Lunch

…to TLD Social Media seminars and giant urns (not in that particular combination or order!) we promise you won’t be disappointed!

Introducing Urn-ie!

Go on, have a read! You know you want to to! And if you’re up for a bit of a challenge, read to the bottom of the newsletter and do as it says.. you might be in for a pleasant surprise! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Our postcards – illustrated by Tina!

We wanted to show you a set of 4 postcards designed and illustrated by Tina Webster. Tina works for Top Left Design (as you may have noticed on our Team page) and is also a freelance illustrator. She graduated from Kingston University in 2008 and her work has been featured in the Guardian, Supersweet Magazine and on the London Architecture Diary website. She has also taken part in a number of exhibitions in central London including a submission for Shelter House of Cards exhibition for Amelia’s Magazine, and the Coningsby Gallery and 93 Feet East

Her illustration style is mainly collage and paper cuts. She works by painting paper and then creating textures with objects such as folks, tissue paper and sponges. This gives her illustration work as 3D feel. Her work is suited to book illustration, editorial and advertising. The designs above form part of a series of 4 postcards for Top Left Design. They feature animals which we also use on our Twitter page background.  The postcards will be sent to our clients and friends and the cards can be collected and then placed together to created one big image.
