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.

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.

{ 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!

Salon Branding - Pure Escape Spa

Bimbo Design have been delighted to be part of the exciting new venture for Alison and Adelle of Pure Escape Spa in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire.  

Pure Escape features a downstairs Spa Lounge with hot tub and infrared sauna, the perfect place to unwind before and after a treatment.  Their boutique chic spa has a beautiful tranquil reception and nail area, 4 luxurious treatment rooms and a relaxing pedicure room. Not forgetting the fabulous VIP area, which is perfect for couples, family and friends, who enjoy pampering together... sounds like heaven!

I met with Alison and Adelle in November of last year, where we planned the look of their new spa and discussed branding ideas.  They both knew exactly the image they were after; high end, exclusive and super chic... 7 months and a lot of hard work later here are the results:

 {Spa Exterior signage}  I kept the design clean and elegant with raised lettering for added impact

{Spa Brochure}  Printed on a lovely silk stock, these look and feel amazing!. 


{Appointment cards} Deliciously thick appointment cards, matt laminated for extra resilience.

  {Treatment Room}  I can't take any credit for this, Alison and Adelle have styled the interior beautifully.

To be honest I've  been kept on my toes with this whole project and designed and printed a whole  spectrum of things from letterheads, door signs, posters, invitations to email shots and a website... phew!   
I'd like to wish Alison and Adelle every success with Pure Escape Spa and can't wait to try the hot tub  : )

Gordon Lamb Charity Football Match

Last night I was lucky enough to be a spectator at the Gordon Lamb Charity Football match - in aid of Ashgate Hospice.   It was a fantastic night and great to see so many familiar faces... some that I've not seen for quite some time!  There was an estimated 300+ spectators at Chesterfield's newly built B2net Stadium, and over £550 was raised with more ££'s to come in!

A big thank you to Stuart Pearce - Group Marketing Manager at Gordon Lamb (the guy who taught me all I know)  for letting me share these pictures.

Well done to everyone involved, I'd also like to say a special well done to 'The Lambs' aka my friends Sam & Rachel, who are going to kill me for sharing this photo with the world... but I think you'll agree, they look fabulous!

In full bloom - Tineke Floral Designs

These are not just flowers... they are fragrant, simply exquisite Tineke flowers!  If you've ever been lucky enough to receive a bunch you will know exactly what I mean!  Recently Bimbo Design has been doing quite a bit of marketing for Kerry at Tineke Floral Designs, above is an advert that I designed for Save the Date Magazine.

Magazine advertising can be an expensive part of the marketing mix, so make sure you do your business justice and have your advert designed for you - yes it will be an additional cost but trying to cut corners and design an advert yourself can be more damaging to your business than you might think!

Who ever said "never judge a book by its cover?!" In our industry we know that all new clients do judge your company by its branding and marketing package, so it is essential to get the package right!  If you would like any help or advice on your marketing give Bimbo Design a call on 01246 855 222 or email

Now back to the flowers...  Due to popular demand, Kerry is now able to dispatch exquisite Tineke bouquets nationwide - click here to visit the website or pop in to the shop!  - and tell Kerry I sent you : )

Let them (me) eat cake!

For those of you that know me, there is nothing I love more than cake - and when that cake is for something special, like a birthday, it tastes that much better!.  So as yesterday was my birthday, I decided to slip away from the studio for a couple of hours and indulge in a little treat... bliss.

Just look at this delicious little secret I have discovered in the heart of Chesterfield...  Serendipity - Tea Parlour & Gift Boutique. 

Sit back and relax in the parlour with a pot of tea and a hot buttered crumpet.  Or why not browse at the gifts, including vintage style jewellery, gorgeous shabby chic nik naks, handbags,cards and homeware..but if sweets are your thing, stop by and pick up a bag of old fashioned traditional sweets... scrummy!

For more information contact Sarah on 01246 555749 or visit the Tea Parlour & Gift Boutique and enjoy a pot of tea and cupcake or 2!

Chasing Payments...

We all know that cashflow is crucial to any business, no matter how big or small.  With cheques eventually being phased out I decided to take the bull by the horns and leap into the baffling world of card payments... aaarrrgh!  For months I have hunted around, trying to source the best company and been bewildered and confused by so many of them... that was until I came across Accept Cards.

What a refreshing company!  No babble or hard sell, just genuine advice and helpfulness - and their charges are some of the lowest that I have seen.  So I thought I would spread the word to any business wanting to offer the facility of card payments to their customers.  I have now been taking card payments for four months and have actually found that clients pay promptly and it is their preferred method of payment... result!

So if you want to be able to take card payments I can thoroughly recommend Accept Cards - click here to visit their website.

Shhhh... it's been a little quiet!

Well firstly a BIG apology for the radio silence from Bimbo Design, my little blog has been neglected lately.  One of the main reasons is that I dared to sneak a quick holiday... which as a business owner is quite a scary experience!  

Since starting the business in 2007 i have lived and breathed design, helping many businesses flourish and worked harder than I ever imagined possible.  In under 4 years I have grown my customer base to just over 500 clients, which, when there is only one Bimbo has been an achievement that has exceeded all my expectations - which leads me to my next piece of good news...

I am thrilled to tell you all that from June 1st I will have a new member at Team Bimbo!  Charlie will be joining me as my apprentice.  I will be working closely with Charlie, developing her raw talent and ideas; very soon she will be managing her own clients ...... eeek! how exciting!

I hope you will all join me in wishing Charlie a long and successful career at Bimbo Design.

The Whole Hog! Simply Divine

Wow what a week it's been at Bimbo Design! There are 3 new websites going live this week, so thought I'd stop and tell you a little bit about one of them.  This website is for a lovely local company - Simply Divine.  

Whatever your event or requirement, their professional Hog Roast service will compliment your day and delight your guests. Jayne only uses her own,  farm reared pigs, to ensure the most succulent texture and delicious flavour.  They are able to cater for anything from 30 - 600 guests... Piggin marvelous!

I've designed & built Jayne a bespoke website which not only looks fantastic but within 2 days is already ranking on Google.  Soon to follow will be a Facebook fanpage and matching blog - I just love social media and encourage all of my clients to get involved.

Picture perfect - Willow Tree Photography

I'd like to introduce you all to a wonderful photographer - Kathryn at Willow Tree Photography.  In the Summer we worked together an a bridal photo shoot and afterwards swapped business cards, so I was delighted when Kathryn got in touch with me for a bit of print & design work.

Now Kathryn has had a Bimbo makeover which consisted of a logo redraw, flyer design & print and an impressive pull up display banner.   With these great marketing materials to match her fabulous photography, she's all set for the busy wedding fayre season.... Good luck! x

Cupcake Parties at April Delights

There is nothing I love more than cake, however designing cake flyers is incredibly difficult - try thinking about fonts and colours when you have so many delicious treats on screen... aargh!

However,  I have struggled through and created these lovely vintage inspired flyers to promote Adele's cupcake parties.

What a great birthday party idea for children,  a party that will keep them completely entertained.  Letting creativity run wild as they decorate their own cupcakes using a mix of buttercream, sugarpaste, glitter and luster dusts...  Oh to be 6 again!

You shall go to the ball... or Prom!

Spirits High Entertainment offer a whole host of services from professional DJing, Starlit Dancefloors, Venue Uplighting and even Ice Sculptures...  Bimbo Design will be using Paul next time we throw another 'Pink Bimbo Bash'.

Currently Paul has a special offer for any potential PROM customers : 20% OFF the starlight dancefloors when booked with a disco package!  Click here to visit his website
