The relocation of a business is no small feat. Moving home and business in the middle of lock-down was an ambitious adventure for Lingo founder Liz, but 4 trips in the trusty T4, and here we are!
While we’re not able to go out and enjoy as much of Exeter as we’d like, and are counting down the days to the end of lock-down, we’re getting to know the local area; which is the gorgeous St Loyes & Heavitree – with beautiful parks and friendly neighbourhood.
Our first completed graphic design project is now out in the world. A new identity for a ‘Creative & Engaging Storytelling for Teachers’ course run by professional Story-teller and neighbour David Heathfield, who lives just 2 doors away from the new Lingo home-office in Attwyll Avenue.
Through consultation came the concept of text relating to the world of creative storytelling wrapping a globe shape – representing the online training that David runs for teachers around the world.
On the Horizon
We’re also excited to share two new Exeter projects which are also well underway. The first, for BIPC Devon – Business and Intellectual Property Centre, based in Exeter Library. Like many, the transition to offering online access to their wealth of services to support small business growth have meant a requirement for an increase in Social Media and marketing activity.
As well as supporting the BIPC Devon team with marketing training and social-media up-skilling, Lingo will deliver creative ideas and graphic design for content generation throughout 2021 into 2022. We are also delighted to have been invited to join their team of local experts providing 1-2-1 advice and webinars to local businesses.
Through the Lens
Secondly, is a new Shopify store for Exeter photographer Paula Fernley – whose incredible portfolio of landscape images will be available to buy online as wall-art, and who kindly provided the featured image for this post – a gorgeous aerial shot of the Exe estuary. Paula’s new website is under construction now, so watch this space for a link when it’s live!
Though we’re settling into the South West, we’re still designing remotely, covering the rest of the UK – including home-town Downham Market – and we’ll soon be able to reveal the new logo design for a new restaurant opening in the Town Centre as soon as lock-down lifts!
