Our brand colours explained

Have you ever wondered why SALES tags always seem to be RED?... The colour red has been shown to reduce critical thinking and speed up our reactions. Crazy right! ⛔️ For us at Gab it's really important to us that we're seen as trustworthy and professional but also approachable and friendly. Take a look at the psychology of our brand colours and h...

Ooo templates, I can do that!

A design refresh for Accountit-4U When Jane first reached out to us about her website the first comment she made was "you can probably tell I'm one of those that thought - oooh templates, i can do that!". In all fairness we thought Jane was being much too hard on herself but we could definitely see there was a lot of potential to take her website to the next level. Jane was worried the website felt chunky and handmade so she handed us over the keys and we got to work on redesigning her webs...

From scratch to launch – we’re extra proud of this one

Many times, when we start working with a client, they have a logo already in place and some initial branding created. We happily work with them and their existing brand to create their websites and marketing collateral, but there is nothing a designer loves more than getting to start from the absolute beginning when it comes to creating a brand. And that’s what we were able to do for our latest client - Cucopia. The wonderful Sam Burrell approached us after we built her sister Max’s mar...

Helping an established business create its public face... and website

When the owner of an established and already successful business came to us for help in creating her first website, we were excited for the challenge. Enigmax has been in business for more than 10 years with a range of global clients and an established reputation, but it didn't have a recognisable aesthetic brand or a window to the world (a website). So, before diving in and starting website build, we first created an all singing all dancing brand that correctly represents just what En...
