When we decided to launch Vin de Terre back in 2010 we had no logo, name, or brand concept for our new business. With Taya's guidance and brand positioning exercise we managed to find the perfect solution to each of these needs. We were hesitant in undergoing the brand positioning exercise feeling that this might be too corporate and unnecessary for a new small business like our own. Luckily we listened to Taya as it has been perhaps the single most important strategic exercise that we performed. Not only did it help us find our company name and logo, it influences every aspect of our business, from what wines we buy to how we communicate with our clients and staff.
Part of our remit for Taya was to find an inexpensive option for our logo, simple to reproduce on a range of media as well as create digital marketing materials including an ipad version of our price list and easy to use clean website. As our business has grown, as has our understanding and appreciation of the level of quality of work she provided us when we were starting up.
In 2013 we won best new business of the year from the riviera business club and I'm sure our strong brand massively contributed toward that accolade, we still work with Taya to this day and have forthcoming projects such as new wine brand and label designs and a new e-commerce site.

My exec asked me the other day what my company was called... I said Hutch Cuts Limited and he smirked... I said yeah, it does sound a bit hair dresser, but it's who I am and what I do, I'm known as Hutch and I cut TV shows... look, just look at my logo! It blew his mind, he was like F*!k Me! I get it and it is so beautiful and totally illustrates your craft! My thought was high praise coming from a senior executive in one of the UK's biggest production companies... Taya is amazing, she manages to read between your lines and provides you with what you didn't even know how to express you wanted and nailed it first time! Work with her, she's a real pro and a pleasure to work with.

We cannot rate her skills highly enough and the Brand Identity she created for us has helped us enormously in what is an extremely competitive market.
Before Taya’s intervention we struggled to find a way to differentiate ourselves as a luxury brand in our market. Her use of bespoke paper incorporating our signature pinstripe was not only a cost effective way for a start-up company to create the impression of Luxury, Heritage and Brand. This extended to all elements of our branding from staff uniform to website design.
The overwhelming feedback from clients is that they are shocked that we are a relatively new company. Thanks in large part to her skills at creating the right first impression we are now a relatively new company that lists amongst its clients Omega, De Beers, Barclays, Historic Royal Palaces and La Perla.
She is a delight to work with, practical and able to communicate her ideas even to the most Design Skeptical of clients!
We cannot recommend her services enough and are more than happy to provide further information or a verbal reference if required.
