Insight, advice, news and chit chat
From time to time we like to give a shout out to our wonderful clients. And one such client is Eaton House Group of Schools – our main contact there is Rupert Back and we have been working together for many many years now!
Just like a puppy is not just for Christmas, your marketing activity is not just a fly by night afterthought. This is the time to get those matchsticks out and use them to open your eyes wide to the scary facts. This is an all-important part of your business. Be brave, and read on.
So many people work for “anyone who…” and forget that there are going to be some people who are in certain industries and positions, but don’t actually have the qualities that you would prefer all your clients to have. It has to do with personality, values and culture.
Not understanding who your client really is keeps you away from being able to better serve that client.
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!
We are lucky to have such wonderful clients! Last year, we met the amazing director of Focus PR agency, Sara Balme. Focus PR is a London PR agency, specialising in consumer lifestyle, digital and experiential PR. They have 3 core sectors they work in: food & drink, beauty & health, luxury & lifestyle.
Have you ever had a situation where you worked on a great design, and the client asked you to change it to be more what THEY thought looked good – but you didn’t like their suggestions?
Images should be thought about carefully and can make or break your design for your website or blog posts. As well as using Shutterstock at Top Left Design and other paid for libraries, we also use these other great image libraries which are FREE – and we aim to never choose images which are poor quality or cheesy.
When designing a logo we always think carefully about the company values and how we can use colour, typography and imagery to reflect the company and the services they provide.
Here is an A-Z selection of our logos from our forever advancing logo collection!
Make sure you look carefully at all of our logos… right to the bottom of the page… We hope you like them!

You might not know much about it, so let’s state this clear and loud before I go any further: Icon fonts are awesome!
The web is moving, IE8 and below are sinking. Get over it.
Why it’s important to use them
Moving forward, we use more and more HTML5 and CSS3 in our code, we design and build for the mobile web, Think less pictures, more code. Technically, this means less HTTP requests to send and less files to load, which reduces the page load time drastically.
