Marketing materials with a distinct 'Inky' language
Creating a distinct voice for Stephens House & Gardens has been key to raising its profile locally and making it stand out amongst other small scale historic houses. Applying a strong brand language comprised of witty copywriting, inky illustrations, bold colours and Stephens Ink ephemera across all promotions from visitor leaflets to event flyers.
The new visitor leaflet is designed as a two way leaflet, one side promoting the House and Gardens and the other the Museum.
Even a simple bookmark has been turned into promotion helping establish the visitor attraction as 'Home of Inky Stephens' and explaining the long history of the House and Gardens.
Often creating an 'ink-splat' style of illustration to promote events on site, we design and produce all marketing for the House.
To educate visitors, school children and families, we have created a leaflet explaining the various trees that make the unique arboretum. The leaflet opens out to reveal a map of the Gardens with all the trees identified.
An A5 booklet packed with games and brain teasers to keep little minds entertained and teach them more about the house and gardens.
Tracking the history of the House and those who have been involved including Henry Stephens of Stephens Inks, the famous landscape designer Robert Marnock, and the late comedian Spike Milligan, the souvenir guide is both a celebration tool and creates an income to the House.
Celebrating the World War I centenary with an exhibition showcasing the House's use as VAD hospital and the Stephens' family war history.
Simple railing signage which calls to attention the need to support the gardens financially.
Following a rename and rebrand of the House we created an online home of 'Inky' Stephens to reach a wider audience with a fully responsive website.
Renaming and rebranding this Grade II house to celebrate its history – the home of 'Inky' Stephens.
Supporting Stephens House & Gardens in completing a HLF grant to reinstate the gardens and make them more accessible with new directional signage and interpretation signs around the grounds.
A programme of events at Stephens House & Gardens is now so well established that it required an events leaflet. Each leaflet is developing as the programme grows so we are now up to 10pp DL size. The front cover always aims to show the gardens in a fresh way and reflect the season.
