For the second year running, we worked with Hastings Pride to deliver a marketing and publicity campaign for their free-to-attend community event and supporting activities. Described by Pride Pics UK as “marketing brilliantly”, this included images to support a Facebook brand identity, a re-worked logo within the “space and aliens” theme, a full-colour 16-page programme of events, and publicity material such as posters and flyers. We also created a Sponsorship and Advertising brochure to help secure funding from businesses and interested individuals.

We produced this year’s programme for Hastings Pirate Day, a folded A3 leaflet promoting the events around the area and including advertising spaces. The centre page featured a “treasure map” of events designed by us to fit the theme.

Qigong Teacher Training

Having set up the original version of the Qigong Teacher Training website, it was time for an update! We worked with the lead teachers and, guided by the style sheet provided by them, we revamped the website with a clean and clear theme, complete with a new version of the logo. For this, we used the “enso” (a Zen symbol used in the previous iteration of the logo) to form the “Q” of the word Qigong and everything else just flowed from there! We updated the content of the site and installed a page builder plugin to make it easier for the teachers to update the websiteRead More →

Therapies by Edit Farkas

We were commissioned to create a simple website for a local therapist, Edit Farkas, with a style and colour-scheme based on her existing business card. As part of that, a new logo was needed. After playing around with the symbol already in place, it became clear that Edit wanted something more unique while still reflecting a particular style and so we created something with flowing lines symbolic of her energy work with the imagery of “healing hands” supporting the body. This new and personalised logo is now in place on Edit’s new website and will soon be featuring on the updated business cards. View theRead More →

Jewels Nail and Beauty logo

Here at 5 element design, we love to support small businesses like ourselves so we were pleased to work with this Nail and Beauty Therapist to design a logo then apply it to a range of stationery, including a price list, business card and letterhead.

Kaguya Acupuncture

The lovely Selena Collins hired us to help create her brand identity and online presence. She provided abstract images for inspiration along with the request for the logo to include the Moon (in reference to her name) and we evolved that into a final logo (with bamboo representing acupuncture needles), website and business cards. The website for Kaguya Acupuncture can be found here:

Kings Road Studio, St Leonards on Sea

The Kings Road Studio is a newly-opened space in the heart of St Leonards on Sea that offers classes and workshops in Yoga, Shiatsu, Qigong, Capoeira and Meditation. We worked with the Kings Road Studio collective to design a logo and theme that would be reflected in the modifications to the chosen WordPress installation for their website. The site itself is hosted by us and we provide a portfolio of email forwarders for each of the teachers and workshop hosts involved in the business.

Shiatsu College Hastings logo by 5 element design

Our close relationship with the Shiatsu College Hastings continues into 2016 and we have produced a range of marketing and publicity material to promote their courses in Shiatsu, Acupressure, Qigong Teacher Training, Meridian Yoga Teacher Training, and various workshops and classes in the Hastings and St Leonards area. We redesigned their logo with the standard Shiatsu College font but kept the wave motif, this time inspired by the artwork we created for their online anatomy, physiology and pathology course. The logo is paired with an image of Hastings Pier that evokes the local feel of the branch and these have been developed onto a posterRead More →

Allied Welding and Engineering Supplies

We have been working with Allied Welding and Engineering Supplies for over 4 years, having originally established a full eCommerce site for them. In the time since then, we have helped them to grow their online product catalogue and increase their sales and web presence as a result. Allied Welding are a company that has traditional values but they are also embracing the future potential of their company so commissioned us to upgrade their site for 2016! The catalogue itself is now built on a more flexible and user-friendly platform and the design of the site is much cleaner and easy to navigate. To enhance the new look,Read More →
