Louise Selby Website Updates

Exeter’s Design Credo have recently undertaken a number of website updates for Louise Selby, the award-winning wedding dress designer.

The major development is the recent addition of a shop page to the site enabling direct sales for some less complex items such as veils and shrugs. In addition to ongoing updates the site has also recently been developed further to integrate better with Louise’s social media engagement. Design Credo developed and host this WordPress site which has become very much the focus of the company’s sales and marketing activities.

Louise is based in Kew near London a is notable for the glamorous simplicity achieved by her signature lace look.

Hazelwood Holiday Park – Signage

Exeter based Design Credo recently got to photograph some of the updates going on at Hazelwood Holiday Park and to be honest it was genuinely pleasing.

Some time ago we proposed an update to the general signage around the park and already a huge transformation can be seen. Instead of going the traditional route of fabric flags which weather poorly we proposed bespoke metal banners on stainless steel poles. Further to this the building mounted signage has been rationalised and simplified giving a stronger but more friendly brand appeal.

This is part of an ongoing programme including photography and an updated website.

The wider story to this project can be found here.

New Digital Property Brochure for Exeter’s Forum

Design Credo have designed a new brochure for Exeter’s Forum city centre offices. Working to Exeter commercial property agencies Turner Locker Barnfield and Stratton Creber on behalf of Palace Capital the new brochure celebrates the refurbished facilities as well as the proximity to Exeter’s vibrant city centre.

Supported by new photographs by Andrew Butler the PDF has integrated links to location maps, floor plans and EPCs as well as the agents’ websites.

Christmas Card Time

It’s that time of the year. I said I wasn’t going to do it (forcefully too) and then I went and did it. Yep, Christmas cards, and made I them myself too, with a bit of help from Stormpress that is.

Well, the story was Mark asked me to pop in and take some photos of when the Velo Vinatge crew hit Barnfield Crescent couple of weeks back. The light had all but gone so unusually (for me) one of the Nikon SB 910s came to the rescue and then Emily, a visitor to these parts, ‘created the moment’. Once I saw the image I had to eat my words (well I’d already had a pie) and do the card.

The difficult part was finding out who the subject was, it seemed rude not to ask permission, but Emily seemed happy enough and even asked me to send her a few.

The process was all Creative Cloud based – Lightroom > Photoshop > InDesign > PDF and a quick email to Stormpress, I reckon it took Tristan 2 hours to have them printed, packed and supplied with envelopes too.

It turn’s out they would have printed the mailing labels as well but no, we love spending the weekend delving into the intricacies of Filemaker templates. Lifelong learning folks.

Ho, Ho, Ho.

Greenwood Guitars and Violins – WordPress Website

Some time ago we were teased with a post about a guitar shoot by Andrew Butler. Well the images are now up and the site is in testing phase.

Working for Greenwood Guitars and Violins of Looe, Cornwall, Design Credo of Exeter have created a new WordPress website .

Design Credo of were approached to create the website following a glowing recommendation from Kevils the Paignton based BMW bike custom shop.

Really happy with the site and I also wanted to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into it for me; it’s definitely put us on the world stage. Kev-Hill


The GGV guitars were shot with the Nikon D800e using a very simple lighting setup. The time frame to photograph the guitars was limited due to them being shown in a number of outlets in the south.

The guitars are all high quality finely crafted and totally hand-built in the UK using traditional techniques.
