Brand

At Ink & Water we live for logos. However, great branding is not just about marks on paper; it’s about marking yourself out from the competition. We love working with businesses of all sizes to help them rationalise – and then visualise – how they want to present themselves to the world.

We have branding packages to suit all pockets and ambitions, from straightforward logo design to full-on brand reviews, including in-depth customer and competition analysis, to make the most of any new identity,

Doesn’t your enterprise deserve a mark of excellence?

Clients include: Natural Bed Company, The University of Sheffield Library, Outlines Festival

Video

A great video doesn’t have to be an epic production. We’ve produced footage for music stars, shot promos for colleges and created animated infographics for construction companies, all with the same understanding of the medium and attention to detail that results in a fantastic final cut.

We can film on location, or have access to some great local studio space. So whether you’re looking to add video content to your website to boost engagement, or you’re planning an event which requires big screen impact, get in touch to discover how we can help.
