Email newsletters

Using an existing brand, Menai Holiday Cottages commissioned Oakshed to create some design concepts for their email newsletters – both for general news and also special offers. This involved presenting a variety of design concepts to supplying final Photoshop build files for the Newsletters. Also included providing a downloadable special offer listings for customers to print and bring with them on their holiday.

Brand Book

Whilst working for Menai Holiday Cottages, we discussed how their brand was not being used consistently – online and offline. I created a Brand Book to help clarify brand principles and help all their staff to have some clear guidelines to work to, creating a stronger and more successful brand as a result..
