You can learn a lot at design college, and you can learn a lot more if you go to lots of them - which is precisely what Rich, did. Starting at York College of Art & Design, he then went on to top his year at Cleveland College before gaining an unconditional offer onto the Typography course from the very prestigious London College of Printing (LCP). He spent a great deal of time here with his nose pressed up against the glass where the Macs were kept - because at LCP, students on the Typography course weren't allowed to touch them in the first year. That's because this was a craftsman-designed course teaching core skills, explaining fundamental techniques and expanding thought processes. Most importantly of all, it was a course about design in the commercial world, and not about making pretty pictures. All this was the solid grounding and foundations for what Rebus was built upon and produces today. Intelligent creativity, well thought-through, designed to work hard in the real world.
First impressions are lasting impressions. At Rebus, we specialise in creating logos and visual identities that build the right kind of recognition and trust in your brand.
Welcome to Rebus
Are you looking for an excellent graphic design agency? That's handy - because we're always looking for clients.
In your search so far, you'll have seen that there are plenty of all-singing, all-dancing, bells-and-whistles, jacks-of-all-trades out there. And, quite frankly, the longer they stay out there, the better.
We prefer to stick to our knitting, which is to say that we firmly believe, hands-on hearts, in the simple beauty, persuasiveness and impact of good design. Really good design is where brainpower, inspiration, experience and talent come together. You can't find it inside an Apple Mac, you can't pick it off a shelf, and you can't learn it overnight.
But you can get your hands on it easily - by talking to us. We'll sit on your shoulder to find out what makes your company tick, sift the knowledge we gain to find the gold, and present you with the what you need. A beautifully designed logo, a brand identity that truly reflects who you are and resonates with your audience, a seamless and slick website or a tactile brochure to thumb through.
And, since we're small (but perfectly-formed), all this comes with an added extra that lots of agencies miss out, affordability.
Everybody is unique, and we want that to shine through all that we do. We help you unearth your story because if you're going to be heard above the noise, you first need something to shout about.
We help you discover what makes you, you! We shape how people feel about your business or product, and discover hidden opportunities which unlock solutions that leave lasting impressions, telling your unique story that connects with the people you’re trying to reach.
Brand Guidelines, why do you need them?
One of the most important parts of branding is consistency; regardless of the size of your company. Brand guidelines are a key tool to help ensure consistency across all applications.
What makes a good logo design?
With all the logos we create, we stick to our proven formula… keep it simple, make it relevant, design it to be adaptable and make sure it’s distinctive.
6 Tips For Creating A Memorable Brand Identity
Creating a ‘brand’ is far more than just creating a logo, otherwise a boutique design and branding agency like us would struggle to justify its skills and expertise.
