How can we help you with brand design?

Brand development is much more than the name or images used to represent your company. Of course, all brands need a logo, a colour palette, a slogan and an associated URL, but that’s not what your brand is. Your branding is the personality of your product, service, and company. It brings about various feelings when your customers interact with it or think about it, ultimately leaving a lasting impression on them. A good brand maintains positive feelings and results in loyal customers. Simply put, your brand is your pledge, your assurance, and your commitment to your customer. It tells them what they can expect from your company, and it differentiates the services your company offers from that of your competitors. Get your brand development right and you can establish a significant and differentiated presence in the market that attracts and retains loyal customers.

QB 5 Illustrated Keg Badges & Pump Clips

The annual Quantock Brewery Beer Fest isn’t just a celebration of their own beers and a few by other local breweries and cider makers. It’s a celebration of their crew, most notably Rhys, James, Sam & Lewis. So, each year they all make a special signature beer and we get to design the clip to a very brief brief on how they’d like to be presented.

Molson Coors Keg Badges & Pump Clips

As well as the very large beer brands under the UK arm of the Molson Coors mantle – like Staropramen, Madri, Carling, Miller, Coors, Caffreys – it owns a lot of small chains and pubs in London and beyond. Quite a few of these outlets have their own-label beers brewed in collaboration with the likes of Sharps, Cobra etc and therein lies the real challenge. Every badge and pump clip had to feel like it belongs in the premises, and whether that badge design reflected the hanging sign outside; the unusual history of the establishment or, indeed, elements from the style of the pub itself… everything was taken into careful consideration.

The Birthplace of modern Middlesbrough

Port of Middlesbrough has a broad and rich history that stretches back over 200 years. Visitors to the new head office site, opened earlier in 2022, can’t help being impressed by the scale of the operation on Teesside, so the board of directors wanted a way to show where and how it all began, and to demonstrate their long and historic journey.

We give purpose to your brand design

They establish the rules for creating and bringing together an identifiable and unified company image. Brand Guidelines should create a culture that people want to buy into. They establish the image, tone of voice and personality of your business, and dictate how your customers, employees and investors view your company.

What our customers say…

Dancing Duck Brewery
Can't recommend Lemontop enough. We initially started working with them for some new bar runner designs and what they came up with was brilliant, everyone loves them. They also built our website which I am really pleased with, however when they really came into their own though was over lockdown. They had set us up a shop on the website which we had never got up and running, when the pubs closed I needed it active "yesterday". They worked with us so quickly to get it operational, constantly making tweaks for us to get it perfect, they quite simply were my lockdown life saver. They are nice guys, professional and easy to work with

I’m really happy with the branding and design work from LemonTop Creative. I gave them a brief at the start of the project and the end result was even better than I hoped. Andy and Arron were great to work with; very professional, responsive and patient. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
