We have some news coming up in a few weeks’ time.

A new video will be hitting your screens, courtesy of Kernow Design and… well, we can’t say who just yet. Suffice it to say, it will be awesome.

As they say, watch this space.

Last week was a great week for websites here at Kernow Design. 3 very different projects all completed to specification.

Social Media Banner

There is no doubt that a string social media presence will boost just about any business. But with so many social media platforms available to the modern user, it is often difficult to decide which are the best to use to promote your business.

It would be tempting to post on all platforms, but this is time-consuming. Or you might try setting up auto-sharing of, for example, website posts on all media. This approach, whilst possible and something we can assist with, is not necessarily the best solution. This is because formats can vary a lot from platform to platform. Instagram, for example, has very different rules for its use, but is a great way to engage with a casual, generally younger audience. A post that looks good on your website or on Facebook may look bad on Instagram.

Obviously, social media platforms would like to sell you ads, post boosts and a variety of other services. but are these going to get you the kind of return on investment that you would like?

So you need to identify which platform to use on the basis of the following questions:

  • How much work is involved for me in writing a post on this format?
  • How much ‘reach’ does this format have?
  • Can posts to this format be automated?
  • How often should I use this format for best results?
  • Which media (video, image, text) will get me the return I want on my time and money spent?
  • Are paid ads and boosted posts going to get a good return on investment?

We will help you look at your business and its social media presence through the lens of these questions and set up systems for you to maximise your business potential

Kernow Design’s first ever music video – and what better way to start than with The Velvet Hands?

Here’s a little something I cooked up to promote the Old Bakery Studios as the place to play for bands on tour.

The brief, from Julian Able, was 90 seconds to get across location, some demographics, the great acts that have played here and the excitement of an Old Bakery gig, followed by a CTA (call to action).

Many thanks to the wonderful Hypophora for the use of their track “Spires” off the excellent album “Douse”. Love these guys.

Also thanks to Mood FotoShirt & Tie Productions and FatBob Productions for the footage used.

And special shout out to Liam Jordan for the manly saunter down the corridor 😀

Recently we have been helping the Old Bakery Studios with a brochure design project.

The brief was an A4 trifold brochure and an A3 poster, which feature amongst the styles of print work you can see here. The aim was to get the message out about the huge line-up of acts they have for the Autumn season.

The keys for the design were vibrant autumnal colours, clarity of info and maintaining the established OBS brand.

Brochure design for The Old Bakery
A lot of info expressed clearly in an eye-catching way.
The same info and design moved to fill out the poster.

Thanks Marvel Comics for reminding us how far website design has come since the 90s.

Take a look at the lovingly created Captain Marvel website in all its “early days of the internet” splendour!

It has it all….

Comic Sans – POW!
8-bit technicolor – ZAP!
Jaggy animated GIFs – BAM!
Bevelled frames – KER-SMASH!
Music on/off button – BIFF!
Hit Counter – WHAMMO!

Just imagine this in Netscape Navigator loading a line at a time down the screen for the full glorious 90s website experience.

Of course, you’d have had to get there via Altavista.com

If, however, you are interested in a more up-to-date experience check out our web design services.
