Welcome to Stanhope Design.
I'm Becky Hutchens, a creative freelance graphic designer based in Cornwall.
Cornwall Landscaping are a family-run garden landscaping company focused on designing, constructing and maintaining gardens across the South Coast of Cornwall, to the highest standard.
Owners Dave and Lou wanted to take their business to the next level and create a brand identity for their business which mirrored Dave's character as being laid-back, cool and on-trend but also hard working and professional. Stanhoope Design created a brand that embodied this. The C and L monogram was used as the focus of the logo, with the C representing trees and nature. The letter L intersects the circular form of the C and creates a wave suggestive of hills and landscape.
The monogram and typography sit within a circular badge forming a flexible base for the logo which can be used in a solid or outline format depending on application. A horizontal format was also created for more standard applications such as on stationery and invoicing.
A natural khaki base was then given a mondern injection of colour by incorporating mustard yellow as a key brand colour.
The branding was then applied to staff uniform and the vehicle fleet. A series of icons were also developed using a simple vector style to illustratethe areas of expertise Cornwall Landscaping are proud to offer.
