A WISER ROUTE: A new to market service, offering workplace mediation, investigation and training. Mint provided branding and full website design and development to the team at Ashfold Consulting.

SINGING FOR OUR SUPPER: Mint have just started working with The Singing Chef, John (yes, he really is an excellent chef, who can sing). We will incorporate his various foodie ventures and adventures in Town (The dining Room and Vice puddings included) into one overarching Singing Chef website.

WORKING SAFE: ABC Worksafe asked us to design this promotional flyer, that will be handed out at various events and venues. Mint is always glad when customers use the power of the printed word - we say, spread the word with a great website, and a great brochure.

AMERICAN BLOG: Mint Design Studio, for the first time in 23 years trading, closed it's doors in August, to take a Summer break in the US of A. However, media junkies that we are, a Blog was kept during the whole month long tour - some pretty good pics and prose to record an amazing adventure. Don't worry, we kept our customers informed about holiday plans and worked hard to schedule commissions in before and after the break, so it's worked out very well. Thank you Mint customers for your understanding and support.

RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW: Mint continue to work as part of the Here & Now team. Layout and pages are created by the Mint Design Studio. The aim is to help create a unique Worthing vibe and every issue, August 2017 included, is packed with features, interviews, news and listings. Above is the cover and a few inside pages, to show you how good it's looking!
MORE ENERGY: Mint continue to work with Frog Hollow. This month we've designed and organised production of some 14 packaging jar labels for a fabulous range of Energy Bites (a couple pictured above). Great products deserve to be presented well so we hope that with Mint Design Studio's help, these tasty treats get the attention they deserve.
TAKING THE LEAD: Kate Honey, graphic designer at Mint, is very proud to have been promoted to Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce Lead Ambassador. Kate's written a Programme to help fellow Ambassadors, a 20 strong group of South Coast business people, work together to promote the Chamber's comprehensive range of activities and events.
IN THERAPY: Working with the Centrevents, a Shoreham based event organiser who specialises in healthcare and well being events, Mint have created the programme for a two day conference in Cardiff. We will also be designing coordinated promotional items and a delegate pack.

SPEAKING YOUR LANGUAGE: Mint have been working with Peter Noone in June (we're poets). Step 1 complete - a rebrand. Step 2 - design and development of a new website is underway and will be completed soon. Peter specialises in jargon-free copy for websites and marketing materials, and provides financial and technical content for several journals.
STUFF THAT MATTERS: July's issue of Here & Now magazine will arrive in an outlet near you, from Ferring to Shoreham, soon. Mint are proud to be part of the team and create the page design and layout.

STAR QUALITY: Mint are busy in June providing promotional materials, such as programmes, stage screens, tickets, team T-Shirts and London press advertising, for a stylish party in St James's Square on 29th June. The Mint team are thrilled to be able to go along and join in with the festivities. There we are on the red carpet, in fact. Do we have star quality? (or shall we stick to the day job?) Yes, that is Christopher Biggins doing the Raffle.
PARTY ON: Earlier in the month, 14th June, is another fabulous party for the Residents' Society of Mayfair & St James's and we provide the same service, as detailed above, providing around 14 items to help promote the event including leaflets with booking details and website adverts. With two parties to provide promotional materials for in June, it tends to be a rather enjoyable time of year in the studio!

SUPER SNACKING: We've been working with Chef Charlotte at Frog Hollow to design branding, literature and display materials, to help promote a brand new range of delicious and nutritious super snacks. We've tasted them (we have to understand the product, of course) and they are divine.
THE RIGHT FORMULA: Having set up a website for our customer, Formula Academy, around 3 years ago, we've been working on a styling and content update this month.

SHAPING UP: Hot off the press, our customer Centrevents, a health, social care and education event coordinator, have just received printed programmes for their delegates at this NHS Conference. Focusing on the Conference title, we created this design, which turned out a bit retro we thought.
COLOURING IN: We can't help absorbing what we see around us, and inspiration for website and brochure design often follows fashion trends. Here are the colours appearing on the catwalks, this season's Spring/Summer palette according to the fashion press. We think we see some 60s and 70s colours in the mix, given a fresh twist.
PICTURE THIS: Pleasure to work with Helen Tinner, a very talented photographer. We provided a design service for a rebrand and a variety of promotional printed items: business card, postcard and price list. Helen captures images for corporate websites, events, schools and weddings.
MADE UP: Our customer is very pleased with this simple holding page style website we created, with a stylish image for impact and some glossy business cards too. Not ready for a fully detailed website as yet, being a new launch service, this site is ready to develop further when she is. For now though, she's made up!
PIER TO PEER: Kate from the Mint team, enjoys her role as Ambassador at the Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce, and very much enjoys being part of a supportive and productive Peer Mentoring Group. Just back from another great meeting (9th March). Picture is of the Chamber's Business Show, a very successful and well attended event held last month at the Assembly Hall.
VERY ARTY: Just finished an advert design for a local gallery, Cloud Fine Art. They're in a great location, in the Royal Aracade, Worthing town centre seafront. They also have galleries in Brighton, Chichester and Horsham. They are proud to stock "some of the most collectable artwork in the UK" and are "constantly on the lookout for emerging talent". Well worth a visit we say.

HI-DE-HI from the Mint team. We like to get out and about and meet other local businesses at various networking events. This morning (Friday 24th Feb) we were at Butlins in Bognor with the JP Business Club. We had a tour too. Really impressed. Great place for corporate events from a small meeting space for four to 1,500 delegates! Looks perfect for a family break and big music weekender too... Suggest a fresh look at developments if you've not been for a while.
NEWS FLASH: Featured in the February/March edition of Business Edge, a magazine published for members of the Sussex Chamber of Commerce, is Kate Honey from the Mint team. See the women in business special on page 29.
TIP TOP: This banner was designed for Anagram, a customer Mint have been providing a design service to for a while now. We've been asked to design another. These will appear at the top of their in-house developed template site. It's okay, we know we're not needed to develop the whole site this time, but sometimes (and the customer thankfully agrees) a little bespoke design can add that finishing touch.
WEDDING BELLS: Wedding websites are becoming more popular. This couple wanted something special, bespoke, and with a picture gallery for guests to share their photos. A great touch, the site also has a countdown (where does the time go?). We designed various other coordinated items too such as keep-the-date and invitation cards. We tend do a lot of corporate work so this was a nice treat.
HERE & NOW: If you want to place an advert in Here & Now magazine (a news and community publication for Worthing readers) and don't have a professional designer to create something just so, Mint Design Studio are your recommended designers. We've enjoyed designing adverts for several local organisations so far. For February's issue we created an advert for a garden landscape designer. You'll often see our advert in there too.
