We came on board with Cornish Horizons whilst the company was expanding, it has been really exciting to see this Cornish company flourish. Managing cottages in Padstow, St Ives, Fowey and the surrounding areas this holiday rental company needed design for many different applications.

We help them with their direct mail campaigns, printed newsletters, advertising and mailers. We are happy to work with an existing brand and can grow with a company ensuring that its aesthetic is constant in all areas of marketing.

This is an A5 mailer we designed promoting the company to new customers.

To soften the pages we illustrated a map of Cornwall and used different textures to add layers to the design.

Cornish Horizons magazine Fowey

When designing the spreads we needed to fit in profiles for each of Cornish Horizon’s cottages with custom designed symbols to indicate what each property provides. We broke up the text by pulling out quotes and using different fonts and weights. We also boxed out key facts and quotes to link up pages.

We also designed the spreads for the town guides. We used large images to set the scene and broke up the text to make the format easily accessible. A lovely project to be involved in.
