We are thoroughly delighted with the new look for our brand. It embodies so much of what’s important to the Urban Cordial team: a devotion to craft, a love of creative expressions, and an obsession with quality. Jackdaw Design has helped us create something that is full of life and we know it will make a huge splash in the cordial market!
Managing Director, Urban Cordial
We went to Jackdaw Design with a very open brief and a very tight deadline. They quickly understood what we needed and got it absolutely spot on with our Network of the Year book design. We’ve had such great feedback from colleagues internally that we’ve asked them to design our publication again for this year.
Worldwide Marketing & Communications Director, PHD Media
This packaging was a game changer for us. After four successful years this has taken our brand up another notch. And since the rebrand, sales in Selfridges have increased by an incredible 55%. Right from the start, Jackdaw Design understood what we could achieve and knew how to get us there.
CEO, Borough 22
As design is incredibly subjective and this particular project had various stakeholders, Jackdaw Design was invaluable in keeping everyone on track and focussed. Jackdaw Design provided exemplary support and guidance throughout and used their expertise, as well as market research, to hone the designs that we elected to feature, in order to ensure that we delivered a guide that offered commercially viable imagery, which we knew would appeal to our target market.
