Design Services

Branding and logo design

A company’s brand is its most valuable asset, and understanding what it takes to create the right mark is essential in developing brand recognition. Your logo must express the personality and core values of the company and have a strong and highly visible presence on-screen, off-the-page and on-product. Brand identity and logo design are at the heart of what we do – we really can make a difference.

Print, brochures, flyers, reports

The printed medium is an effective way of putting your message in the hands of potential customers, stakeholders and buyers. It might be overlooked in the digital world, but smart businesses understand its true value. Brochures, leaflets, flyers, annual reports, direct mail, merchandise, business cards and stationery are all tangible means of communicating your products and services. Knowing how to create the right tone of voice – not to mention the right materials and print processes – makes all the difference. Talk to Zuma about getting your offline campaign going.

Websites

Just like print media, the web has its pros and cons in its use for any given campaign. While some jobs will call for a heavy web presence, others will benefit from the web being a secondary medium. But whatever the balance, the rules about delivering goals remain the same. That’s why Zuma call ourselves web creators, not developers. We treat the web as one of several campaign tools and hire best-in-field developers to maximise its effect, be it standalone or in concert with other media.

Product mock-up

Two-dimensional designs or 3D digital visualisations are important steps in the design process, but there’s nothing like a physical mock-up to get a true idea of the look and feel of a product or its packaging. It’s also great for focus groups and comparison with rival products. Get in touch today and your clients could have a faithful mock-up in their hands within a couple of weeks.

Packaging

Alongside marketing and advertising, a product’s packaging represents one of the important opportunities for displaying its appearance, features and benefits at the point of sale. It’s naturally more important for some products than others, but when it matters we’re on hand to create striking designs that stand out on the shelf and nudge the competition into touch.

Photography and image editing

Our digital table-top studio set is ideal for products or pack photography. Once we have the photo, we can manipulate or enhance the image exactly to your brief, whether it’s simple image clipping and cut-outs or retouching and colour correction. We also digitally render photo-composites and photo-montage. Need more info? Fire away!

Words from our clients next prev

  • Chris has a refreshing and helpful approach to projects and is a pleasure to work with. His "can do" attitude is an asset to any joint venture and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. I enjoy discussing marketing strategy with Chris and often find his design perspective illuminating whatever the brief. His quick ability to interpret a brand through design is invaluable.

    Amanda Dagg, Managing Director, RedMoran Ltd

  • Starting up a professional music group on the French Riviera was a daunting task. Zuma Design managed our marketing and general approach from the initial ideas through to current published adverts and articles. We have had so much good feedback regarding our marketing and Chris' management of the project has been invaluable - we are now recommended supplier for venues such as the Yacht Club de Monaco and the Hotel de Paris.

    Stephen Cordiner, Manager, Kingswood String Quartet

  • Zuma are an extension of our business ethos. They have assisted in establishing our brand and building brand awareness. A valued impartial opinion is constructively given before we embark upon any advertising or marketing campaign and we benefit from the one to one interaction Zuma can provide.

    Jaqueline Kamal - Marketing Director, C&C Insurance Brokers

  • I’ve worked with Chris at Zuma Design for around 5 years and together we have developed an idea into a brand. I started out with a name and a head full of thoughts. Yes, granted I have a couple of decades in the fashion industry, so instinctively know my business and I know what I want to achieve. My weakness is probably in relaying that to another person, but somehow Chris manages to understand my brief and translates it into my vision. We don’t always get it on the first draft but I can guarantee by the second my thoughts are visual.

    Jacqui Ricci, Managing Director, Goose
