Effective design is essential to any company's economic growth. An industry survey by the Design Council revealed that two thirds of UK businesses already believe it, and that every £100 they spend on design increases their turnover by £225.

Rebranding for Edinburgh IT Business

Rocela was one of the world’s fastest growing Oracle consultancies are an existing Seton client. In late 2012 Rocela undertook an extensive client survey which resulted in the company realigning their business and requiring a rebrand. Seton was commissioned following a credentials presentation. One of the first tasks was to help Rocela define the companies structure which resulted in Rocela changing to a Group format with three service brands. The rebranding was launched with all divisions in a staged process with a focus on digital marketing to drive traffic to the group website, to support this a monthly e-newsletter was produced, a social media campaign was undertaken, ‘master-class’ video channel set up on YouTube and a daily blog.

Objective: increase sales channels and group turnover as part of an exit strategy.

Rocela was acquired in January 2014 by Irish IT services company Version 1 for an undisclosed sum.

Puddedub Branding

Brand refresh for Fife Farm Producer

Seton Design was asked by the Mitchell family who is very reputable and known farmers based in Fifeshire to refresh their Puddledub Pork branding. After careful research and consideration, we approached the illustrator Iain McIntoch to produce a woodcut style illustration of a price winning Puddledub pig in a farm setting.

New Branding for The Faculty of Advocates

The Faculty of Advocates is a body of independent lawyers who date as far back as 1532 when the College of Justice was established by an Act of the Scottish Parliament. We were approached to develop the current image and instill consistency of the brand throughout the many departments within the Faculty. After a lengthy implementation process, the brand was rolled out to a successful audience. This project involved the creation of a unique watermark for the entire stationery requirements for the Faculty.

Branding creation for a new venture

As Scotland’s leading body of lawyers, The Faculty of Advocates wanted to create a new division within their organisation called ‘The Free Legal Services Unit’, this unit was established to provide free legal advice and representation in deserving cases. The brand concept is based on the earliest 12 tables of law which were recorded by Hammurabi who was the King of the City of Babylon (1795 -1750BC). This was portrayed as a way to symbolise guiding steps through the legal process.
