Examples of client branding projects
the gloucester poetry society
I am a member of The Gloucester Poetry Society as poetry is a passion of mine. I wanted to celebrate the diversity and talent of the members so I came up with the idea to create a poetry anthology. I successfully crowdfunded the project to self-publish the book. I designed the book and I'm also one of the featured poets inside too. The book celebrates the first anniversary of the Society and it's publication coincides with Gloucester's first ever poetry festival, organised by the Society.
burslem school of art and trust
historic staffordshire art school and trust
I was asked to modify the School and Trust's existing logo's to give them a more current style as they had not been changed for many years. I redrew the logo's icon and matched the colours and introduced a more modern font.
burslem community development trust
local development trust
It was a pleasure to redesign the Trust's logo that had not been updated for many years. The Trust wanted a more modern logo to help reflect a more positive impression locally, in line with the Stoke on Trent City of Culture Bid 2021. The Angel is part of a local historical landmark in Burslem and was essential to include in the design to help give instant recognition to the location of the Trust.

COach, inspirational Speaker & blogger
Renny got in touch as she needed a website creating to represent her business as a motivational coach. She had a basic single page site build with a domain providers basic website builder that looked dated and also a separate Wordpress blog. After a consultation I recommended that the new site amalgamated all of her services into a single website, with an internal blog.
Sqaurespace was the perfect platform for Renny's new website as she needed to be able to update the site easily and quickly, and also have a mobile friendly website.
As part of the project I designed Renny's brand new logo, business card and flyer.

I have worked with Sally-Anne and Holly for several years, helping with website design, social media branding and more recently Squarespace website training and consulting to help them build a professional website.
Most recently I worked with them to create a range of product cut outs for their new website.
Jane is a sports therapist working in Staffordshire and approached me for help creating a brand identity for her business. She is self employed and needed an eye catching logo designing to help her business to be look professional.
I have also helped Jane to get a Squarespace website designed as well as developing a range of product labels for her ethical beauty products.
Most recently I designed a wow factor pop up banner to help get her business noticed.
These are Jane's words when she saw the banner artwork for the first time:
‘’This is absolutely amazing, when I opened it I said wow. That is certainly professional and will get noticed.’’

In addition to this I have helped to maintain the company blog and more recently I designed a new folding informational leaflet for mediation clients to take away with them.
IT Sales and service centre
Rebecca needed a brand overhaul for her very popular IT shop based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
I created an eye catching brand logo to help her business stand out and be noticed locally.
The project developed into a full stationery design and also the design of the signage for the shop front.
"Jason has been so professional and helpful throughout the entire design process, he really has been fantastic. Little things like advice to help compliment his work mean you can tell he really wants us to succeed, above and beyond the remit of his work."

Cheltenham CLeaning Services
Domestic and commercial cleaning business
Pete and Lynn first got in touch when they needed help to create a first website for their Cheltenham based cleaning business. I was also asked to help with SEO and social media management to help spread the word about their cleaning services to Cheltenham offices, rental properties and homes. As they only covered the Cheltenham area my task was to use social media and SEO to create local interest and to ultimately generate new business.
I've been working with the couple for many years and they really are fantastic clients to work with!
Here is a lovely testimonial from them:
"We have had been able to get a couple of jobs for my In laws and are in apposition to pick and choose jobs. We're very happy about this. Two of the jobs you got us passed us on to offices next door, so money is very good. We have bought a new car for the business and I'm getting a '6 month smile' (cosmetic dentistry) so doing very well. A lot of it is down to your good work!"

Polar cold rooms
Cold storage rooms provider
Debbie and Jan came to me for help through personal recommendation from THE WEBWORKS, a local IT business in Stroud. After having a new website produced that crashed their Google ranking to the floor and lead to a big reduction in income and bookable work, they got in touch initially for SEO advice and I was thrilled when they agreed to let me create a new fully scaleable responsive website for their business.
I helped to produced a mobile friendly Wordpress website that's super search engine friendly, ranks highly and funnels new visitors to their website, and has increased both their enquiries and their income.
The family business has now closed as they are taking a year out to travel round the world and I wish them a wonderful time on their travels!
Here are some very kind words:
"We are delighted with the website and marketing services provided for us by Cre8urbrand.

We cannot recommend him highly enough." Jan and Debbie - Polar Coldrooms Ltd
VL Retail Limited
Independent Designer Swimwear Retailer
I got in touch with Verity at Verité Louise after finding her website through Facebook (which was a basic single page at the time) to let her know that I would love to create a beautiful new website for her that would demand attention and shout about her brand.
After getting to know her brand and business inside out I crafted a fabulous on trend bespoke responsive website for her. She was passionate about having a leading and stylish website that would stand above her competitors locally and nationally.
After two great years working with verity, she closed the business due to an exciting career change, which mean't a fond farewell to the website!
This was a multi award winning website winning both the Gloucestershire Echo Love To Shop Awards 2014 for best website and being selected as finalists in the Stars Underlines national trade awards 2014 for best website. Two fantastic achievements for an independent retailer in the lingerie and swimwear market and I was thrilled to be a part of the journey.
