Creating Media design work - Julie Kelly HR
At Creating Media we love getting to know a new client and creating a suite of design for their business. We recently had the pleasure of working with Julie Kelly, a HR specialist who needed a new professional edge to her branding to match her growing client base.
We started by creating the logo – we worked with concepts including jigsaw puzzle pieces and cogs to symbolise the HR element that Julie could bring to businesses, but we eventually settled on a neutral, yet professional, ‘lozenge’ style logo that Julie can use for a range of services of she expands – simply by editing a...
Kraken Rum Tentacles
Over the weekend, during the ‘Festival No. 6’ food festival at Portmeirion in North Wales (Nice little reference to The Prisoner there…) a 30 foot tentacle washed up on the beach.
This mysterious occurrence was actually part of a (fantastic!) marketing stunt by Kraken Rum as part of the festival – where they served up pieces of ‘kraken tentacle’ which were actually rich fruit cake soaked in the rum. The staff at the event were dressed in old fashioned diving suits – as fully suited ‘kraken hunters’. The whole things just sounds like a really great idea carried out really well...
Apple iPhone - what's next?
So I hope I’m not the only one finding the new Apple iPhones unveiled this morning a little… underwhelming. With the leaps and bounds forward in Android technology (for example, the Nokia Lumia’s nighttime camera, and unveiling of the new Android KitKat version to be coming soon) and the rumours flying around about potential Apple innovations in the run-up to the launch, a reskinned OS, pretty colours on the cases and a fingerprint sensor just aren’t enough to get anyone in the office excited.
I think Apple have placed themselves in a strange position – they have released a ‘budget’ version...

Sir Terry Matthews announces Celtic Manor Organic Brand
Sir Terry Matthews has announced that he will be beginning to turn the Celtic Manor and Usk Valley into a model organic paradise.
The South Wales business giant already sources organic food for the Celtic Manor Resort’s catering operations, including over 3000 local organic turkeys over the Christmas period. According to Sir Terry the ‘natural progression’ was to move on to growing his own. As such a big local landowner and big-name influencer Sir Terry is probably uniquely placed to head a crusade for more organic food – the purchasing power and brand recognition of the Celtic Manor are unmatched within...
Lots of news in the smartphone world!
So yesterday we had the big news that Windows are finally buying out Nokia – I have to say it hardly came as a surprise since the only phones that Nokia now make are Windows-based, and Nokia are the only phone manufacturer that fully adopted the Windows OS (Other manufacturers, such as HTC and Samsung, still use Android on the majority of their phones).
But what does the news mean? I thought initially that it would make it easier for Microsoft to finally make the jump from computers to phones – but then Apple have made that jump with no problem...
Unveiling the brand new face for Creating Media!
Today is a very exciting day for us here in the Creating Media office, as we are officially launching our brand new website and visual brand!
We regularly carry out the ‘brand refresh’ treatment for our clients, but it has been long overdue on our own business! The Mini, a huge part of the old brand, had become tired and tatty, so we had removed the distinctive vinyl covering. Our website had grown and grown with time, until it was a bit of a confusing beast to navigate. In general we were badly in need of a dose of our own medicine!
