MONTHLY MOODBOARD: June
NEXT MONTH WE WILL MOSTLY BE: MEETING, GREETING, REARRANGING, DESK BUILDING, WEB LAUNCHING, FUTURE PLANNING AND SHORTLISTING.
174 days until Christmas…just saying…
…and with that out of the way, how the hell has this year gone so fast already!? We’re slightly perturbed but also mega excited for what’s to come; lots of super sexy projects and keeping our own marketing ticking over is certainly keeping us busy.
We hope you managed to cast your eyes over our new Journal that we’ve been distributing around a few of our favourite places around Cardiff – namely Little Man Coffee, Outpost Coffee & Vinyl, Rabble Studio, Slunks Hair Salon, Milk & Sugar, Waterloo Tea and our beloved, The Studio, Cardiff. If you see one, make sure you park your bum, have a coffee (or haircut…or workout) and check out all our current musings about brand and our branding process.
Talking about branding processes, we’re also giving new start-up businesses the opportunity to apply for BRAND LABS 2017; our competition that gives applicants the chance to win a full brand package including visual identity, strategy, guidelines and a fully responsive website to help to market their business. We’ve had some really exciting applications already, but if you’re interested, you’ve got until the end of 14th july to apply.

We’ve been busy bees on the look out for new members of our hive – namely a Web Developer to join our Rhys-o, a Studio Administrator to help us deliver tip-top, seamless service for all our clients (applications now closed), and a Summer Design Intern to show us what the next big thing looks like! If you’re interested in any of the roles, or know anyone who might be, please feel free to pass on our details.
In other news, we celebrated Ez’s 27th birthday early with a hamper of retro sweets, a couple of copies of Wavelength magazine and some delicious coffee and chocolate cake, Owen has been shooting some epic band photography for Rhys’s band ‘Velor’ (soon to be playing a gig in Clwb Ifor Bach, so keep your eyes peeled) and James survived his stag-do!
