Website Design - Ecosmart Services

Website Design - Ecosmart Services

A busy few weeks at Bimbo HQ.  We’re really pleased to get the Ecosmart Services website live!  Mark came to us after his previous web design company simply vanished into thin air, leaving Mark with no website and more importantly no access to his domain name…!   Unfortunately this is a story that we hear only too often  : (     If you find yourself in this awful position – please get in touch as we can have you back online, with the absolute minimum down time.
Ecosmart Services specialise in the installation of Solar Photovoltaic, Solar Hot Water and Biomass Boiler Installations to suit domestic and commercial buildings… so basically, renewable energy!  When I met Mark the business didn’t have a clear brand identity, so this was my first priority.  I quickly went to work on some logo designs and concepts and the result is a clean, professional looking logo that Ecosmart can be proud of:


Now that we were happy with the branding the next step was to create a beautiful website that would reflect the image that Mark had in mind.  As Ecosmart work on a national level, I needed to design a website that would be taken seriously and appeal to his target customers.  I have kept the overall look clean and minimal and opted for simple navigation that would be suitable for all levels of user.  The home page features a jQuery slideshow which  finishes the site of beautifully and adds a dynamic element.


The website will be extended and evolved over the next few weeks, with online savings calculators and project case studies – not to mention the new marketing flyers, business stationery & vehicle branding that we are working on!
So all in all I am very pleased with the new Ecosmart website build and just glad that we were able to help Mark – after he was left high and dry by another  company.

Flyer Design & Print - Love Candy Cakes

The lovely Candy from Love Candy Cakes contacted me last week, as she wanted a helping hand to promote her newly opened ‘Cake Boutique’  and as always I was only too happy to help!  We quickly produced some DL Flyers, on one side we created an offer voucher and on the reverse side a showcase of all the delicious treats and goodies that Candy and The Cake Boutique has to offer… cookies, brownies, blondies, Victoria sponges, flapjack, cupcakes are just a few off the top of my head… mmmmm : )

{ Close up photo of Candy's newly printed flyers }

Flyers are an important part of the marketing mix.  They allow any business, big or small, to get noticed by the right customers at a cost effective price – CLICK HERE to visit the Print Shop for prices.
Try adding a voucher, discount offer or a code to your flyers – that way you can measure how successful your marketing has been as well as increasing sales for your business  : )

Beauty Salon Posters - The Lash & Brow Bar

With Mother’s Day just around the corner Katherine at The Lash & Brow Bar has focused her window display to take advantage of this busy time of year.  We sat down together and came up with a plan to promote some of her treatments, which have been designed & printed  as huge A1 salon posters.

Many shop owners forget the importance of their window display, which can be easily and cheaply transformed with BIG display posters.   Sale or offer posters should be big and bold with a clear message.  It’s worth spending time planning your window displays and changing them regularly, with a bit of thought you’ll reap the rewards and increase your sales!

Logo Design - The Lollipop Shop

Here is a logo that we have just finished designing for Jamie at The Lollipop Shop.  Jamie knew exactly what she wanted, so her logo fell into our Exact logo package.   I was emailed a quick sketch of Jamie’s idea and produced a couple of concepts, which we developed.  Many of our clients often have an idea in their head,  but not the technical skills to make it look professional.  Even if you’re not the best artist, we promise to never laugh at your spidery doodles!  Afterall, some of our best designs start from a quick doodle!

Would your business like a helping hand to look more professional?  Have a look at our logo design packages or email any doodles to … We’d love to help!

Logo Design - Unique Wedding Planning

Here is a sneak preview of a project that I am currently working on for Joy at Unique Wedding Planning.   Joy and I have worked together for nearly a year,  on a number of varied projects.  She  comes from a strong retail background and appreciates all the benefits that good branding brings to a business, so when she asked me to work with her on this latest venture, I was only too happy to oblige.

The starting point for me was to create a brand identity that would sit easily alongside Unique Wedding Plannings current branding.  By combining the existing colour palette from Unique with timeless, elegant fonts I have created a simple yet stylish logo that will carry on throughout all of the marketing (which will be featured on the blog tomorrow).
Have you considered the importance of a branding for your business?  Helping businesses strive is my passion, if you’d like to work with Bimbo Design call 01246 855222 or email

I was enjoying a serene Tuesday morning when an email popped up on screen titled “LYNSEY, HELP!” … so I took a deep breath and read on  “…just booked into a massive wedding fayre and realised I have NO flyers…… LYNSEY HELP!

This was a plea from the lovely Francesca at Venue, how could I not help this damsel in distress?  Anyway to cut a long story short, I designed Francesca’s new flyers and met her tight deadline and we all lived happily ever after : )

Invitation Design & Print – The White Room

I’ve been working with Katherine at The White Room for a few years now and so pleased to be part of her 10th Anniversary celebrations!  The big day isn’t here quite yet but I’ve had the very important job of designing and printing the invitations & marketing materials.

Katherine always knows exactly what she wants and is a true pleasure to work with.  After a quick catch up over a coffee we decided on an ultra classy black and white theme for the marketing – perfect for her ‘dress to impress’ red carpet event (she really knows how to throw a party!)

I’ve designed a range of marketing materials including: promotional flyers, A1 posters, Invitations and not forgetting the special offer stickers – as I know there’s going to be some serious discounts on the night.

 { Flyer Design - Front }

The White Room is an award wining beauty salon based in Sutton in Ashfield.  To celebrate their 10th year in business they will be lavishing ticket holders with Champagne & canapes, goody bags, free makeovers plus other exciting offers & prizes.  For further information or for tickets contact Katherine on Telephone : 01623 555517

In season Newsletter – East Lodge

{ Outer Pages }

I have just finished working on the first ever edition of the ‘In season’ newsletter for East Lodge.  With the Glorious 12th upon us and  Bakewell Show earlier this week, the newsletter was delivered in perfect time to take advantage of these key events in the season.  We pulled out all the stops to make sure we hit the deadline for David and when I delivered the newsletters earlier this week he's already working on ideas for the winter edition … talk about being kept on our toes!

{ Inner Pages }

The ‘In Season’ newsletter is full of the latest news from East Lodge, including their latest culinary innovation – The Chef’s Table.   The Chef’s table is a real highlight, where people can enjoy fine dining while watching the award winning Chef’s at work.  The atmosphere is not ‘painted on the walls’ with this Chef’s Table, but experienced live, putting guests at an inner secret table, at the heart of the restaurant’s action.  To find out more about East Lodge click here

Newsletters are a fantastic way to reach out to customers, both old and new… afterall, everyone loves a good read!
If you are interested in producing a company newsletter but don’t know where to start – Call Bimbo Design on 01246 855222 or email  I’d love to get involved.

Shake Up Sheffield - Leaflets & Branding

{ Flyer Design - Front }

We've had some fun at Bimbo Design working on the branding for Shake UP!   James came to us a couple of weeks ago,  full of enthusiasm about his new venture and we were only too happy to help make his ideas a reality.  James knew exactly the path that he wanted to take with his branding and this allowed us to to work quickly and keep design costs to a minimum - which when you are starting a new venture is crucial!

{ Flyer Design - Reverse }

We've also designed and printed flyers for Shake UP ready for the launch, which is happening next Saturday (13.8.11).  We included a 'FREE Shake' voucher to entice customers to come and try before they buy - so we know James is going to be busy next weekend!

Shake UP! Sheffield introduce the i.Fit. The very latest in vibration plate technology and just 10 minutes of use per day can have the same effect as one hour's resistance training in the gym... which is perfect if you lead hectic and busy lives like we do at Bimbo HQ!
