Design & Branding Agency

Whether you are starting up or starting over, you need to translate your personality, ambitions and ideas into a compelling brand identity. The last thing you want to do is blend in with everybody else because it’s safe and cosy in there! This is the best way to go unnoticed. Your brand identity needs to be uniquely yours… Be bold. Be brave!

This site showcases the work of myself… Richard Stockdale. Over the last 18 years at Rebus, I have been crafting logos and brand identities for established companies and ambitious start-ups, focusing on creating simple, flexible and distinctive designs that reflect the personality, values and ambitions of the businesses I work with.

What I do

Some companies promise you the earth and everything in it! The list below is a fair summary of the services I choose to offer because this is what I love to do; it’s where I’ve gained my experience and can guarantee a satisfying result.

Logo Design

A simple mark that lasts for years.
Are you unique? Does your business differ from the competition? If the answer is yes, then you need to capture this and create a logo that reflects you, and you alone.

Brand Identity

The most influential brand identities are instantly recognisable and immediately convey a message about that business.
Whether you are starting up or starting over you need to translate your personality, ambitions and ideas into a compelling brand identity.

Brand Identity

Design for Print

Design for print is far from dead.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that marketing has gone all electronic these days. Not true. There’s still plenty of room for a hard-working business card, brochure, leaflet or poster.

Packaging Design

The design of product packaging performs many roles.
It needs to protect, it needs to identify, it needs to inform, it needs to transport, but above all, it needs to get noticed if it’s to survive on the shelf.

This is Me

Inquisitive + Creative + Competitive

Not the most academic of students, the majority of my passion and effort was funnelled into Art & Sports. So on leaving school, it came as no surprise to anyone that I ended up at York College of Art & Design, this is where I discovered my passion for design. From here I was accepted on to the Graphic Design course at Cleveland College where I passed with Distinction and also gained an unconditional offer onto the Typography course from the prestigious London College of Printing (LCP). Here I spent a great deal of time with my 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 course focused on 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. Well considered, meaningful design, created to work hard in the real world.
