Identity & Branding
Your logo identity needs to communicate the right message to the right people. A professionally designed logo and how it is applied, together with your company’s ethos, history and customer’s perceptions of your company is your brand identity, which sets the tone and creates a long lasting impression - so you need to get it right!
Whether you need a brochure, flyer, leaflet or some stunning business cards - first impressions count and print should still be part of your creative marketing campaign. Exhibition banners, corporate presentations and information graphics are also very effective ways to visually communicate your services and directly inform your customers and have an impact.
Vehicle or shop signage - your company logo and services cannot afford to miss the opportunity for free advertising, promoting your business, generating sales and raising brand awareness. Do not underestimate the power of this low-cost, effective advertising medium.
Your website is your shop window, it's the door for opportunity, to engage, sell and inform your potential customers - so it has got to be effective and work FOR you not against you. I work with web developers and together we provide web solutions that are fully responsive, cost effective, generate sales and raise brand awareness.
Having taught design in educational and business environments I have gained invaluable skills to differentiate and facilitate teaching and learning effectively. I can provide tailor-made training for your business' needs focussing on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to ensure your on-line social media pages and collateral look great!
Having the time to invest in social media is important to all businesses. Knowing how and when to use your social media platforms to promote and connect with your customers is vital in building your relationships but your page needs to look good!Contact me and I can help you to ensure your social media platforms communicate the right message to the right audience.

OUR CUSTOMERS LOVE US
After a short initial meeting with Sarah, her apparent infectious passion and enthusiasm for design gave me the confidence to engage with Sarah in a rebranding overhaul of our company logo and stationery. Sarah totally got our company and what we are about, reflecting that into the design of our company logo which I am delighted with. I consider the money spent with Sarah to be a fantastic investment for my company and has really strengthened our brand, with many clients complementing the change.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah’s services to anyone, she has exceeded my expectations and really gone the extra mile for us.
Every good company should have a Sarah Bates – Thank you!Martin English, Director – Homelink
We were recommended to work with Sarah by a friend who had previously worked with her. From our very first conversation we were confident we had made the right choice, we were complete novices at designing an appropriate brand to showcase our business. Sarah listened, supported and advised on every aspect, guiding us to make the right decisions for DJL. Ultimately we have been left with a design we are very proud of and the response from our customers has been very positive, many of whom only contact us because of the Van! Thank you Sarah, our business would not be what it is without your work. Rob and NatalieDeakin Joinery Locksmith
Sarah was ‘on-fire’ delivered everything I asked of her and more. Guiding me through the maze of website blogs and advising me on the best way to promote my business was invaluable. My new van graphics look amazing and have already generated 4 new clients in the last 2 weeks which is brilliant. Thank you.Cara Holmes – Holmes Dog Walking
