What I've been up to - April 2021

Contents

As the year ticks on, the projects are coming in thick and fast. Over the last few months I’ve been busy working on a whole host of different projects across different markets. It’s great to be able to work with such unique and interesting clients. Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last month or so…

MiChild

MiChild Group is a leading provider of childcare and early years, where highly-trained nursery professionals nurture your child’s full potential.

The client approached shape with the need for a new logo, branding and website. They allowed us complete freedom to create what we believe best suits their brand and target market. This one was another enjoyable one as again, it was really nice to work with some quality branding assets, colours, and fonts.

Alliance Investments

A leading property development company based in Manchester, Alliance Investments approached Shape a few years ago in the hope of us creating a high converting, visually pleasing website with key functionality to help visitors find what they’re looking for.
We recently redesigned their website, giving it a more updated design with other ui/ux elements throughout.

Alliance Oxygen

A luxury, Manchester based hotel. Their brand guidelines was really nice with a classy gold and a nice serif font. Makes it easier for me as a designer to come up with a nice website when the brand guidelines are solid.

Mysa Skincare

Mysa is a forward-thinking skincare brand that develops natural oil-based products, Inspired by the products clean formula and it’s pure ingredients, MadeByShape created a clean, minimalistic eCommerce website that reflects the brand and embodies the simplicity of its ingredients through design, photography, and development.
I enjoyed working on this project, the client allowed for complete freedom during the web design process and I think that shows in the final result.

Dance Studio

A dance studio based in Manchester, they approached us to give their current website a full revamp, starting from their logo, branding finishing with a new website. We looked at their competitors and noticed a gap in the market for quality websites, so throughout the design process we’re looking to up the standard for websites in this type of market. This was really exciting to be part of a potential change in the market for web design.

This one is still in early design stages but keep an eye out for updates at key stages of the design stage on Dribbble, Instagram or Twitter
