Website design + Brand design + Graphic design
Nick had spent a few years out in Uganda supporting the women and men in the local area to develop extra income streams for their families.
When he returned to the UK, Nick kept his close links with the community and started to sell the handmade crafts across south east London.
During 2019 Nick committed to growing his shop and the number of sales he makes.
Nick approached us to seek our advice about how to grow the shop. We met Nick for a coffee and he just inspired us with his story and the human element to the products.
We have done all of this for free as part of our ‘doing good’ programme.

Nick had been selling the products for a couple of years in local community centres and events.
As part of the growth of the business, we needed to develop an online store and a vibrant visual identity to help the products stand out.
We also needed to take the existing hand made logo and create a version which gave Nick a digital version that he can use.
We also needed to help the products stand out. With Nick we identified that the personal stories of the women and men who make the products by hand would be used throughout the marketing and sale.

+ a simple shop promoting the vibrant colours in the products
+ a simple and friendly email domain
+ social media accounts for free marketing and advertising
