BEHIND THE BRAND 〰️ A little Monday mood ✨ There is so much that goes into branding other than just a logo. It is more than just about a beautiful design; it’s about connection. While that is one of the first things your clientele will see, there is also a lot of thoughtful strategy and design that goes into crafting a brand identity.

From colour palettes and font exploration, to image direction and brand voice, all of these elements make up not only what your brand looks like, but who your brand is.

A Moodboard is an essential part of our design process. It serves as a starting point to guide the rest of the project. I’ll be showing a full insight to our process throughout the week 👀

What is your “WHY” behind your business?🖋

Also, can you guess the location from the second image? Let me know if you need any clues! 😅

But if you're thinking you're ready to take the leap and brand your business, there’s no better time so get in touch! Drop a DM and fill out our brand enquiry form (link in bio).

Happy Friday all! It’s certainly felt like a long week and I’m glad it’s almost the weekend - pass me the wine 😅✨

But we currently have a new #wip this week and it’s giving me all the feels! I’m a big sucker for a rustic feel and the irregular lines and rough edges just do it for me (you can zoom in for the extra detailing 🤩🤩). It’s all about them finer details which can bring it all to life and nothing makes me happier than seeing a brand come together!

I’m excited to show you more - without giving too much away too soon of course! We’ve also been working on our very own first blog this week where I will be talking about how the studio came about. So stay tuned and let me know what you think so far.

Have a great weekend! 🍂

Minimal hand drawings that never cease to amaze 🍂🤩 There’s just something about getting pen to paper that can bring a drawing to life - from the imperfect lines to the natural flow ✨

Re-Burn brand design is gentle, natural and illustrative, and is creatively aligned with their eco-conscious values - in keeping with reusing old jars for their own candles. Working on a candle brand is always one of those fun projects we love to work on and fortunately our styles matched up perfectly!✨

We believe that every founder should have a brand that showcases their brand perfectly and connects to their Ideal clientele in a full and meaningful way. 🤩 All of these bespoke, intentionally designed details are reminding us that branding is all about experience and emotion. 

What values reflect in your branding? 🍂

Introducing the latest font hierarchy that we’ve been working on and I can’t get over how nice it looks altogether 🤩

With typography everything matters- even the little type 👀 From the kerning to the alignment and to how they all fall within each other! It’s always the small details that make the most impact 🍂

What’s your favourite font? - Have a lovely Thursday all! ✨

IT’S LAUNCH DAY ✨

We’re really excited to share with you guys the latest brand new and bespoke website 🍂🤩 It’s took a lot of hard work and developing but as ever a brand is constantly growing and evolving - and that’s okay! 😅

I felt like the old website didn’t reflect who I was anymore and so came the revamp to it’s new home! Like everyone I feel like working on your own brand can feel like hard work and no doubt it’s still going to be a work in progress because of the perfectionist in me, but I’m happy with it for now! (The coding never seems to end!)

But let me know what you think! I’m excited to hear all your thoughts ✨ The link is in my bio. 🙌🏼 #CThomasdesignstudio

P.s It always looks so much better on the big screen 🤩🤩

Throwback to one of my favourite modern designs✨ Now that it’s getting colder and crisper - the warm drinks and out even more so than before 😅 I’m so obsessed with the final outcome of this! From the typography to the patterns to the brand elements! What’s your favourite?⚡️

Can’t believe this year is flying past so quickly with October just around the corner. Time seems to go by quicker and quicker every year. Slowly catching up on updating our portfolio for our NEW UPCOMING SITE which always seems to take a back seat but it’s getting there! 🤩

The trick to really making it work is to create a brand personality that you can apply in your everyday business and one that allows you to connect with your audience. It can help create an impactful story and make a memorable impression. 🍂

Happy Friday! It’s finally the weekend so the two week quarantine is over and we can now go out to enjoy the crisp autumn walks 🍂

We thought we would mix it up a bit this week and have #typefacefriday instead and have everything pumpkin spice in the Bolton typeface which is quickly becoming a highlight for us recently 🙌🏼 

Can you name a better combo? ✨

Autumns definitely here and we’re looking forward to all these great fall projects on the horizon 🍂

We’re also taking some time currently revamping our own website (which all the custom coding I keep on persisting on adding will be the death of me I swear 😆) but it’s definitely going to be worth it in the end!

They’ll be some sneak peeks coming shortly so be on the look out for them ✨

Where all great things start ✨

It’s often the hand drawn elements that offer the most unique and bespoke pieces and this is no different 🤩 Following on with the french theme this was for the lovely gîte last year and it’s great to see it against the rustic backdrop!

I’m always inspired by everything rustic and natural, what’s inspiring you lately? 🍂

French Vibes ✨ We’ve been relatively quiet over the past week visiting family, exploring the french Haute Vienne region and taking some well needed time off eating plenty of carbs and drinking too much wine 🍷 With just a small taste of what we’ve been up to!  

We’re now looking forward to new projects, autumn to begin (an abundance of spiced candles), pumpkins galore, fresh mornings and autumnal palettes. 

What’s everyone looking forward to most? 🍂

Hey all! So from Sunday I will be on holiday for a week in France and taking some time off of social media - going to see family and drinking wine (of course - and if all goes to plan!) 🤩

That being said, I will still be available so you can email me if you are thinking about working together in autumn, we still have some spots left, but they are filling up fast ✨. Although we are now going to have to self-isolate for two weeks once we’re back but luckily that’s the great thing about working from home!

Who else has any plans for the rest of the year? 🌿

It’s finally the start of the weekend! Sneak peek of a wonderful project we’ve just wrapped up for @the_galley and we couldn’t be happier with the end result! It’s all about them minimalist clean lines mixed with great typography and a mix of hand-drawn illustrations, which is what we’re all about! 🤩 This is just a small peek inside the daily menu but I think this is by far my best page! There’s a whole lot more collateral heading your way so be sure to be on the lookout 👀✨

It’s the weekend! And 1st August marks the first year for us here at C.Thomas Design Studio and we couldn’t be happier! I thought I would share a bit more about the journey so far 😅

Just over a year ago, I was made redundant from my last job simply because there wasn’t enough work coming in. I wasn’t sure where to go or what to do next! I had always thought about becoming freelance since Uni but was never sure about making the jump (as I’m sure many others have experienced too!)

I started looking for new jobs, although I never found one that suited me and my skills, I wanted the next job to be one I really wanted. I had a couple of personal projects lined up already just to keep a bit extra coming in - and suddenly we came the realisation - why not be a freelancer?!

If not now, when will I get the chance again. So here we are now - a year on and already we’ve worked with some amazing clients nationally and internationally, and I’m even more excited to see where the studio takes us! 🤩 and lastly, I couldn’t have made it possible without my clients, so thank you to you all.

What’s everyones else’s journey been like so far?

Have a lovely weekend all! 👋🏻✨

Today is a new day and a fresh new week 😅 With fine lines, hand drawn illustrations and customised typography what could go wrong for your brand! Still we can’t get over that ampersand!

It’s been a very busy week again and so we’ve been relatively quiet the past few days getting artworks out of the door and setting up final files ready to go over to their new homes which can always be a huge task in itself, we’re excited for new projects coming to an end and new projects beginning 🤩

Happy Monday everyone! 🌿

Could we BE any more excited? It’s the weekend!

Can you guess what my favourite tv show is? It’s a slight guilty pleasure of mine and lately it seems it’s on every day at some point, even if it is on in the background whilst I’m woring. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve rewatched it but it never gets old 🤩 Even though my other half is constantly telling me I watch it far too much!

Whats a guilty pleasure of yours you’ve found lately? It might even be during the current situation? What’s your favourite colour-way?

Have a great weekend all! 👋🏻✨ @ CThomas Design Studio

The latest branding project that went out yesterday and I couldn’t wait to share with you the outcome! 🤩🤩

Anyone else get too excited about unveiling projects too soon? Fortunately, I was able to hold out long enough - I know some times sharing too much too soon can bring different opinions but I love a good typographic brand! There’s just something about designing typographic logos, customising the letters until they feel "just right". It takes a lot of time and effort but the results are so worth it!

For Bruna, her brand needed to fit her fun and bold photographic style and we took a couple of different directions but I think we can safely say we found it! I hope you like it and I’m excited to show you more soon 🌞

But if you're thinking you're ready to take the leap and brand your business, there’s no better time so get in touch!

Contact us for more information. If it feels like a great fit, I’d love to schedule a time to chat with you about your business/brand and your goals. ⠀

This time last year we were just arriving in Tobago 🇹🇹😭

It was by far the best holiday to date and I’d love to be able to go back again! But I’m glad we did it last year and not this year, but hopefully again soon ✨

So I thought I would create something a little different this weekend and show a few pieces that inspired me the most; the white beaches, the botanic rainforest 🤩🤩, the waterfalls, the food, the culture and the people (they were all so nice plus we also found someone else called Cadel, so they had to be really!) I’m also going to include some more in my stories throughout today so lookout for that! I’d definitely recommend going when we can again!

What’s inspiring you currently? 🌿

Happy Friday! What’s everyone up to this weekend? Having a quiet one or venturing out? 🌞

It’s one of the best feelings bringing a vision to life but its a whole different story actually seeing it all come together! It’s one thing taking on plenty of new projects but it’s great when your styles fit in perfectly ✨

Alisa was in need of a gentle, natural and illustrative brand in keeping with reusing old jars for her own candles and it’s certainly the little differences that stand out! 🌿

All the branding marques that you could ever want! 😍⁣

It’s more than just including some drawings and a logo, by including all of these branding marques that you may ever need throughout your website and social media, they can really make a big impact.⁣⁣

You may not be drawn to them straight away but overall they can create something really unique and ‘sprauncy’ for your brand! Let me know what you think 👀✨

Happy Sunday! Simple, classic typography paired with hand-made illustrations ✨⁣

In favour of small businesses opening back up again slowly and surely we can all support each other growing the local community again 🌞⁣

Who doesn’t love a new font exploration on #typefacetuesday 🌞⁣

We’re glad the sun has finally made a return from all the sudden rain pours and thunderstorms (although I do love a good thunderstorm) it’s surprising what difference it makes to have a good cuppa outside in the garden first thing in the morning while the sun rises that can set you up for the day - it’s the little things 😆✨⁣

But today we’re excited to get started on a new brand and I’m sure they’ll be a few WIP’s as we go along so be on the lookout 👀 ⁣

What’s the unusual silly things that you enjoy?

Having a slower start today but I’m loving the packaging vibes we’re going with currently! Especially with spending so much time inside at the minute I’m definitely feeling inspired by all the interior brands and it only felt right combing the two 🌞⁣

Getting the right tone is essential in branding because it's those first impressions that count the most. ⁣
Your packaging and visual mockups can be a great way for your clients to completely visualise their new brand and aesthetics. It can help create an impactful story and make a memorable impression. ⁣
