Creating a more global brand appearance for Ellie Cashman

Ellie Cashman's designs are inspired by the natural, living world. Her products are meant to incorporate a celebration of nature and beauty into our homes and daily experiences. In producing her fabrics and wallpapers, Ellie Cashman values a conscious and sustainable approach. Over the past several years her designs have won awards, appeared in publications and quickly gained international fame. Ellie Cashman Design concluded that, while their core values remained true, their brand appearance contained a lack of international appeal. Our mission was to create a new visual identity that brings widespread recognition and global value.

Services: Brand Strategy, Brand Identity Design, Packaging design




Outcome
Having identified consistency as the key we redefined Ellie Cashman Design visual identity, designing a clear brand personality and instructions to ensure a uniform look and feel across all media. The new word-mark is personal and feminine. The application of color (inspired by how flowers come from the darkness and into the light) and subtle, tactile print finishes exudes beauty and elegance.

Impact & recognition
The new identity has a more global brand appearance. The acceptance/feed back from the clients are very positive. Also the indicators for brand strength (e.g. awareness, liking) have been improving more rapidly since the transformation began.
The new visual identity design received international recognition on many design blogs and online magazines (a.o.: Mind Sparkle Magazine, Braaanding) and is curated by Behance Gallery. PaperSpecs made an 'Inspiration Video' about it (watch it here) and the logo design is included in the international publication: Los Logos 8 | Gestalten 2017.
