"Corporate identity" refers to a company's look and feel i.e. their logo, official typefaces, colours and other design elements associated with it. The ideal corporate identity development job includes logo and stationary design, such as business card design, folder design and letterhead design.

Provena Professional

Example of logo design and packaging designA loyal client of ours, Bellville-based Medis Medical, asked us to design a logo for their latest product, ProVena Professional medical hosiery / compression stockings, as well as the packaging design. And we were very happy with the results.

ARG Design Architects and Urban Designers

Example of logo design and corporate identity developmentARG Design are architects, urban designers and town planners based in Observatory, Cape Town. Their portfolio includes sustainable, community-driven projects.

At first the client suggested organic, esoteric symbols in green colours which, while accurately describing their philosophy, may have alienated them from the conservative (and sometimes superstitious!) South African market.

We decided to use rectangles to indicate the systematic nature and efficiency of their work. Earthy colours were used to suggest harmony with the environment. To show their aesthetic values, we used thin outlines for the rectangles, and for the logo we used an italic, serif 'AR' for sophistication, and a solid straight 'G' to show reliability.

The business card was printed on recycled card and we went on to design a portfolio for them.

Konrad has since done work for IG Architects, owned by István Gosztola, previously of ARG Design.

World of AfricaExample of logo design and corporate identity development

André Thomas commissioned Konrad to create a logo, business card and letterhead for his new tourism company, specialising in African tours.

We decided to give the logo a clean, crisp feel to indicate the upmarket target market, yet keep it colourful and African, as German and other tourists come here not for a European tour, but for their vision of what Africa's about.

World of Africa focusses especially on African diversity, giving tourists the true African experience - not only the safari experience, but the urban experience as well.

Logo development

Tharagay Addiction Services

Example of logo design

Kenilworth-based Tharagay House, Cape Town's oldest and most experienced secondary care facility for recovering drug addicts, started expanding a few years ago. The Tharagay group would now include a primary care centre, a tertiary care centre and more.

We created logos for these new rehabs, keeping the corporate identity tight and recognisable, using different coloured leaves to indicate the cycles of recovery and life, represented as the different seasons. We kept the friendly, handwritten typeface which represents the care centres' soul.

Logo design

Wordo Communications

Example of logo designElmari Potgieter was going freelance after a solid career in creative writing, and she needed a logo that would strike a balance between fun and professionalism.

"Wordo" means roughly "word wizard," "word artist" or "language expert." It's tongue-in-cheek, based on "Weirdo."

Wine label design

Hermit on the Hill

Example of wine label design

A client and old friend of Konrad's, Pieter de Waal (of Vinotage fame), needed a logo that would portray the medieval origins of this Boland house wine. Although Hermit on the Hill operates from Bellville, the wine is sourced from Paarl and other areas.

He needed a label that would say "house wine", something warm, something for friends – he didn't want Nederburgh

Chelsea Village Framers & Curiosity Shoppe

Example of logo design

Zeki Hilmi and Sue Gutteridge started this framing business and curiosity shop in Diep River, Cape Town during 2012.

They wanted that antique feel, yet keep it fresh. We decided on the French Provincial look, and extended the identity to window signs and boards, letterheads and business cards. The client was very pleased with the result.
