Logo design for Lizard Holiday Cottages

Lizard Holiday Cottages

Lizard Holiday Cottages have worked with us now for quite a few years, it all started with a logo. This great company owns 6 lovely self catering cottages on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsular. For the logo we wanted to conjure up that holiday feel and illustrated a little fishing boat. The logo is housed in an oval like a house name might be. The two shades of blue instantly remind you of the sea.

To complement the new brand we designed two colour headed paper and printed it on 120gsm stock.

Clean typography was matched with elements of illustration bringing that sea side feel.

We have also created the Lizard Holiday Cottages website, into the mix of the blues we added a sandy yellow and bright red and used elements of illustration like bunting and seagulls.

The Cottages are arranged by area, Helford River and Coverack, and both pages have an image carousel showing the beautiful locations. There is a search box to help you see what is available too.

For the Local Area page we have illustrated a map of the peninsula highlighting some key places. Individual galleries highlight what holiday makers can do in this special part of Cornwall.

Leaflet design for Lizard Holiday Cottages

In 2015 we designed a A4 folded to DL leaflet using the same look and feel as the website. These are placed in stands outside the cottages and can be picked up by holiday makers.

We used the bunting and idyllic pictures to further tempt the viewer.

Our client also approached us to sign write their van. Vehicle livery is an ideal way to advertise your business. We didn’t want to use photographs in this instance so we drew seaside illustrations to set the scene. The logo and bunting adorn the white vehicle.

Our inspiration was botanical drawings and we traced our illustration to create vectors ideally suited to such a large scale. Soft sea blues are complemented by the addition of coral pink with the sandy yellow.

business card design for Lizard holiday cottages

We have now completed a full set of stationery for Lizard Holiday Cottages! Most recently we have designed our clients a business card. We kept the front really simple, just the logo. For the back we used the seahorse illustration that we had drawn for their van and letterhead. The seahorse was our clients favourite! The deep blue provides a bold background for the contact details and social media symbols.

Lizard holiday cottages 2017 leaflet

For 2017 we updated their leaflet. A new image of the gorgeous Kynance Cove and slightly more punchy colours.

The inside of the leaflet now features the map we illustrated for their website. We updated the cottage images and tweaked the text. Ready for another year promoting these fabulous cottages!
