Interpretation board for The Chilterns Conservation Board

Kate Marston - Monday, October 19, 2015

Earlier in the summer we were asked to design an interpretation board for The Chilterns Conservation Board’s Chilterns Box Woodland Project. The project was to research, conserve and celebrate the area’s Box heritage.

The Chiltern region’s ancient Box woodlands are only a small remnant of a habitat that was once more extensive but there are a few trees sited at The Natural History Museum in Tring and this is where the interpretation board has been installed.

10 years – No 10 Wicks Ice Cream

Kate Marston - Saturday, October 17, 2015

It was an exciting day when I was contacted by Ian Wicks and he said he needed branding for his new ice cream business. Here was a project to really get our taste buds going! As a new start up business we worked with Ian on name selection, logo, business cards and website design and development. We even branded his ice cream bicycle. As a successful winner of Dacorum's Den Ian was able to use his funding towards this new marketing collateral.

Our case study on Wicks Ice Cream branding contains more information on the design process and shows some alternative logo suggestions we initially presented. Check it out here.
