The blondes are back

by Admin 10. January 2011 03:28

Although we had a short, but fun filled break, we are fully recharged and on a mission for the new year. We would like to thank all our clients for your support in 2010 and we look forward to working with you during the course of this year.

Xplore Studio is back at the office and already we’ve started with a bang. Our projects lined up for this month are well on track and we had no choice but to get out of those holiday vibes and get into our thinking caps.


We are very excited about 2011 and we know that Xplore Studio will reach new heights. So if you are interested in a brand new custom designed website, corporate identity, logo or branding contact us so that we can wow you with our talent.


May 2011 be your best year yet…

Landscape Logo

by Admin 2. August 2010 05:07

The great thing about the line of work we are in is that we get to meet people from many different industries – and of course design for these industries.
 
We are busy giving FSA Property Services a revamp and I must admit that this is quite a fun project to work on.  FSA Property Services is a landscaping company based in Durbanville and excellent at what they do. Seeing as landscaping tends to let one think of creative layouts, we had a blast with Beaulah and her brand to cook up something simple but different.

We especially love the logo design with the roll on lawn and implemented this on the business card as well.

Look out for more of our design work to come...

Tygerberg Plumbing Logo Design

by Admin 21. June 2010 04:13

The corporate image is by far the most important single asset a company has.

A good corporate Identity allows your company to convey its purpose and message and sets it apart from the competition.

Tygerberg Plumbing realised the importance of a well designed logo as part of their corporate identity and contacted us to give their image that corporate and professional look and feel.

Now they can use their revamped logo and pull it through to their stationary design like business cards, letterheads and invoice templates.

Why should a logo cost more than your lunch?

by Admin 4. June 2010 05:45

A logo is the very first impression people get of your company

Before a potential client even walks through your door, your logo is a representation of your company. It can make a company appear large, small (whether it really is or not) fun, serious, professional…

A logo needs longevity

Once a logo is designed it will represent your company for many years.

A logo needs to be original

A logo should be designed specifically for your company. A cheap “generic logo” may not reflect your company’s values. A cheap logo may also use clip art which could end up being used by another company.

A logo should look professional

You wouldn’t take a potential new client to Mac Donalds for lunch, in effect this is what is being done with a cheap logo. A logo should give your company a professional image, appropriate to its needs.

A logo should reflect the time and thought gone in to designing it

One of the problems here is that people don’t always realise the amount work that goes into a professionally designed logo:

  • The research – even if the budget is quite small I would expect at the very least to find out who the company’s main competitors are and how they present themselves
  • The brainstorming of ideas
  • The rough sketches
  • The 3rd and sometimes 4th logo options worked up on the computer
  • The amends, tweaking and further amends


A logo is the starting point of your whole corporate image

The colours typography and style of a logo will often dictate the corporate look of the rest of a company’s literature.

Revamp on Corporate Identity for Law Firm

by Admin 1. June 2010 08:46

Nielen Marais Jnr, a partner in KMI Law approached us to revamp their corporate look and identity. They are a well established law firm and required a fresher, modern look to reflect their proffesional services.

We provided KMI Law with three different logo concepts and they immediately decided to go with the logo displayed in the image above. We think it was a wise decision and love their new corporate image. Of course the new corporate identity had to be pulled through to all their business stationary and branding concepts – from their business cards to their letterheads.

It does not matter in which industry you find yourself, a corporate revamp always attracts attention!

For Heavens Cake and Design Sake...

by Admin 16. April 2010 10:46

Xplore Studio is all about the big and the small. We design and develop websites for corporate biggies, but also cater for the design requirements of unique small businesses. One of the corporate identity designs we recently did was for an entrepreneur breaking into the cake and catering industry. For Heavens Cakes focus exclusively on creative cakes in the kids party and events industry. Marlizan Johannes is the owner of this quaint business and a fantasic client to work with.

We gave in to our feminine side and came up with these cute and fun loving designs – much like the owner!

Needless to say Marlizan loved the playful touch as this is the trademark of her business. If you ever need a cake for any special occasion or specifically a Kiddies Birthday party, do give Marlizan a call on 082 974 4716. We have first hand experience that her cakes taste as delicious as they look.

Although we are an all women team we do butch it up with corporate companies, so no matter what your business profile looks like – we can most certainly design it for you!
