food logo design

Heaps of fun helping out raw food chef, Maz Jones with her new Rawlicious?food logo design?for her new business.

A simple logo design with a lovely organic feel featuring a?sprout within the logo text?–?the?key to the goodness of eating raw food!

The brief was to design the logo to be able to be applied with a rubber stamp to?brown bags, hence simplicity and contrast was key?and the stamp look worked well to achieve an?environmentally friendly food packaging look. Classy black satin-finish freezer-grade food labels were also designed to?brand the lids of her raw food products in jars.

Soul food made with love and passion!

Food Packaging Nuts Product

Food Packaging NutsNuts Food PackagingNuttz new Food packaging has hit the shelves – a Mark III for Duffy – so exciting to be able to use some colours.

The previous packs were struggling to stand on the shelf, so to get the market ‘seeing’ them it was time to add some colour.

Had a ball designing these packs designing the most relevant colour palettes and patterns to work with the ethnicity of the flavours and or the flavours themselves!

These packs are still just 2 colours + white – I just love a challenge, but a challenge that saves my clients money is worth it.http://www.xhzpmr.icu/food-packaging-nuts-company-nuttz/

WordPress website – Castabroad Fly Fishing Holidays

Posted on May 3, 2013 in Web Site Design

Wordpress Website Castabroad

Wordpress Website Castabroad

Castabroad’s WordPress website has just gone live!

When Craig from Castabroad came to Duffy he had a great lovely brand identity, outstanding imagery but needed the Duffy design website design glue ?to make his fly fishing tours business?really communicate and stand proud.

The first step in the evolution of the new Castabroad site required some wireframe planning distilling his itineraries and previous site content until there was an ‘aha’ moment where I really felt I understood what his offer was and we had some order.

From there the site grew through the design execution and development process and of course adding a few bells and whistles along the path.

 

“Duffy made its introduction and first grabbed our attention through a website they had previously designed www.theboatshed.co.nz. The site was clean, easy to navigate and had set a level of credibility to match the service it was advertising, which became the mantra of the project in creating Castabroad’s now live and functional tool – www.castabroad.com

From first contact, ideas & expectations were quickly extracted from us by Belinda and a brief was drawn up. From there the project grew as we were introduced to options that could be integrated into the website, and before we knew it Belinda had designed what we believe to be the best NZ resource for what we do.

A customised and very sophisticated (behind the scenes) calculator proves for simple online enquiries to be quoted in real time exchange rates to the visitor.

Imagery, being the most important facet of online advertising was maximised with wall to wall panoramas of our incredible NZ scenes shown in a slideshow, different on every page. No need for a gallery page here – the whole site is a hi-res gallery!

The CMS used is WordPress, simple to use and available on any platform – whether we want to update something from our offices in Wanaka or even an iPhone on the riverbank, we can.
Timing is everything, and Duffy Design was flexible to our availability during busy spells in our offices and we simply picked up and carried on when we could.

Open and transparent quotations, the best of design talent, fair and honest opinions and fulfilling expectations is a given with Duffy Design – Highly recommended, in fact we have already recommended Duffy Design.”

Batch Winery Waiheke - Wine label Duffy Design Thomas and Sons

Batch Winery Waiheke Island – Wine Label Design by Duffy Design

Batch Winery 1299 Blanc de Blancs being served at the Sculpture on the Gulf opening, and the premium range Thomas & Sons.

Duffy worked with leading designer David Scott who designed the Batch Winery building, Duffy created the coloured panels that adorn the exterior walls of the winery, the colours inspired by the colours of wine from pale lemon lime (Pinot Gris) to Rose to Deep Plum (Merlot).

Batch Winery is one of New Zealand’s first gravity-fed wineries allowing hand-picked grapes to be delivered at the top level then naturally wine feeds into tanks and aged wines into the barrel hall built into the hillside.

The name Batch reflecting the care, attention and uniqueness of each ‘Batch’ of wine it produces.

All of the Batch Winery labels feature the same wine colour ‘stripes’ to connect them with the Art in the Vineyard, the exterior of the winery.

The Batch labels are all uniquely numbered for each type of wine using a custom designed font by Duffy which is comprised of lines in varying weights to mimic barcoding.

The Thomas and Sons label, Batch Wineries premium wine features a Digital Dot and Line coding design along with the wine stripes.

And the still to be released Thomas’s Bach label will be a more ‘Kiwi Bach’ feel in design being home to the Thomas Family hence also Batch Winery is known as the Thomas Estate Vineyard.

Website Redesign - Osmosis Skincare New Zealand

The makeover by Duffy Osmosis New Zealand needed to align its brand online as the world’s best skincare products fastly becoming a must-have item in New Zealand’s fashion and beauty industry.

A website redesign transforming the site into a clean sophisticated minimal look that Duffy as carried across a range of print and screen-based marketing collateral from instore posters to training powerpoint templates.

A challenging little site design to work with an ‘out of the box’ e-commerce website software, to allow them to easily update product and their entire site with ease.

This site also features a wholesale area where their clinics can pay their accounts, download files and many more great features. A site that really ‘works’ for them.

This past November we incorporated our Osmosis Skin Care business from Colorado. For a few months Kay and I really struggled to find a local company that delivers the same level of excellence we were accustomed to in California.
Duffy may be a boutique operator but Belinda truly offers the same level of quality of “design intelligence” as any of her counterparts in LA.
Belinda has an amazing ability to take a crude concept and deliver true inspiration in a very short period of time.”

Product Label Design - Yellow Diamonds by Duffy Design Auckland

Duffy’s ‘designer label’ for Osmosis’s new yellow wonder pills, aptly named ‘Yellow Diamond’s, with inspiration from Ben Harper’s song, ‘Diamonds On The Inside’.

The bottle sticker design needed to look classy and sophisticated. The label uses a clear holographic foil that shimmers with particles like a diamond – a very cool bottle label design.

So what makes these pills wonderful? They contain a proprietary blend of beneficial nutrients that activate our cells to stimulate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel for our metabolism and all cellular activity. Yellow Diamonds take free fatty acids (fat) and convert them into energy while allowing our adrenals to rest! Increasing energy, focus, metabolism, burning fat, removing toxins, lowering bad cholesterol, and curbing your appetite by stabilizing blood sugar.

Interior Design Website Design – Alizarin

Interior Design Website Design Alizarin

Hot off the Duffy cutting room table – a new website for Alizarin Interior Design.

The web design creative is based on the idea of fabric selvages, with each page of the site having it’s own unique colour scheme.

A true reflection of Ali Daniel from Alizarin’s prowess, developing colours schemes and interiors designed, from the benchtop to the roof colour all working in harmony.

“I approached Belinda Duffy of Duffy Design to design my new website after viewing her creative and diverse portfolio.

My brief to Belinda was for a visually appealing, informative and functional website. During our initial discussion she suggested using images as well as text to show how each aspect of the design process works, and also how colour and fabrics could be used as a repeating theme on each web page to reflect the nature of my business. These were both original ideas which evolved further as the website was developed.

Belinda communicated with me on a regular basis, ensuring that I was happy with each page design. Nothing was too much trouble – she was incredibly patient with all the minor tweaks and time required to get the web pages perfect before the site went live; never once losing her sense of humour! It has been a most rewarding journey to see the website come to fruition.

I am delighted with the end result which is a testament to her creative flair, attention to detail and professional approach.” Ali Daniell.

Hot of the Duffy Press:
Book Design for Saving Frances – Curing Cancer with Courage and Cord Blood.

This job has been such a pleasure to work on!

I have learned so much about how incredibly amazing Cord Blood is…

You only have one chance to extract this precious Cord Blood at birth from the umbilical cord! I can’t believe we would through this precious ‘gold away’!!! ?CordBank provide the kit for the midwife to take the blood and they store it (Yes you can’t store it yourself in the freezer!! Have heard some very interesting stories from the girls at CordBank from people calling up asking whether they can ‘bring in’ their cord and placenta that they have had stored in their freezer – the answer – ah – no!)

Every baby’s cordblood is unique, it contains stem cells with that child’s very own DNA that when reinfused back into the child’s body throughout our their lifetime acts like a reset button – resetting the body back to full working order.

Cord Blood has been proven to cure Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Type 1 Diabetes, Brain injuries. Current research shows that cord blood may play a part in the treatment of many other diseases and degenerative conditions including:?Spinal Cord Injury, Heart Disease, Strokes, Multiple Sclerosis, Liver Disease, Parkinsons Disease!!

Wow!

Here is Frances Story:

The book can be purchased as a paperback or as an e-book from?www.cordbank.co.nz

“We would definitely recommend working with Belinda. She is efficient, full of good ideas, works to deadlines and also really lovely to work with. If you’re looking for a fresh approach to your design requirements, give Belinda a call.”

Assisi's Memorial Bear Kitchen Website Design

Posted on Jul 26, 2010 in Charity, Web Site Design

assisis-memorial-bear-kitchen-website-design

Duffy has just completed the website design for Assisi’s Memorial Bear Kitchen to assist helping build a kitchen to prepare food for the Moon Bears that are rescued from Bear Bile farms in China.

A very, very worthy cause. They need just another $73,000 for the kitchen, in conjunction with the SPCA us kiwi’s are on a mission to gather funds for the kitchen.

I went along to recently to hear Jill Robinson, the lady behind Animals Asia, who is making it all happen, and things are really changing over in China to close down these farms.?So that is great news!

Bear bile has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years and has resulted in thousands of bear farms in Asia where bears spend their lives in cages barely large enough for them to move in where they’re milked for their bile through a catheter, or a permanent hole in the abdomen that bile drips out of.

There are officially about 7,000 bear farms in China, but groups suspect the actual number to be higher. The World Society for the Protection of Animals estimates that approximately 12,000 bears are currently suffering on bear farms around Asia, with an estimated 16,000 left in the wild, who are considered an endangered species.

The active ingredient in bear bile, UDCA, can be synthetically created without the use of animals. Additionally, a report by the Chinese Association of Medicine and Philosophy and EarthCare has established that there are at least 54 herbal alternatives to bear bile, including Chinese ivy stem, dandelion, chrysanthemum, common sage and rhubarb. The alternatives are both cheap and effective, according to Animals Asia.

Animals Asia have a great number of doctors and a huge amount of extensive research to prove that the bears that the bile has been extracted from have and die from liver cancer, so any product often non-essential, non-TCM products such as toothpaste, wine, shampoo and power drinks, that contains Bear Bile can make humans get liver cancer too, need I say more…

Duffy has just completed the website design for one of Auckland’s leading businesses in the Transport Warehousing and 3rd Party Logistics industry Carroll’s.

The design objective:
– To communicate the history of Carroll’s, a family business with an outstanding reputation
– To let the staff ‘speak’ about their ‘love for their jobs’, hence why they have been with the Carroll’s for decades.
– Use pictures to visually communicate ‘what they do’ in an interesting way (‘Pictures say 1000 words‘)
– Highlight the ease of working with Carroll’s, that working with Carroll’s is ‘easy’, ‘they go the extra mile’, because working with Carroll’s you are working with and are part of a ‘family’.

www.carrolls.co.nz

“Duffy Design was referred to me by two other companies we have dealings with. Belinda has just completed our new website and I cannot speak highly enough of her. The end result is exactly what we were looking for. We are a Transport Warehousing Company and when we started on this project we knew the direction and feel we wanted. Belinda clearly listened, she went about understanding what we do, how we do it and why we are different. I feel this was the key and coupled with her great design ability, we received a website that doesn’t look like it has come off a factory production line. Belinda thankyou for all your patience with me.”

It was really important for this business to have a great domain name ‘packed’ with keyword clients search for to find ‘Self-Drive Holidays’. In-depth keyword research was done to see what US, UK and Australians search for to find ‘Self Drive Holidays’.

From this research the domain name www.selfdriveholidaysnz.com was chosen as it cleverly contains several search terms. We also recommended an abbreviated name also www.sdhnz.com for ease of people typing in the domain name.

Branding:
Duffy created the branding for SDHNZ based a stylised steering wheel, that reads cleverly also as a mountain range and koru design. The brand was simply executed in Black and White (a key NZ palette) to ‘stand off’ the stunning images sitting behind it on the website and print collateral.

Website Strategy + Design:

This website was no ‘walk in the park’ project! The site is all custom designed page by page and custom-coded.

Duffy doesn’t use ‘out-of-the-box’ CMS (content management systems), sites like this and the majority of large sites we work on – they just don’t fit the mould. So we make the mould to fit the site.

This site cleverly holds all the ‘Things to Do’ and ‘Places to See’ in a database, allowing the client to create custom holidays that detect when he chooses a region a selection of things and places to see so creating holidays for him is easy.

We also used Google maps and coordinateas to automatically build this holiday maps.

The result a very clever website that works for the client, that he has total control of moving forward.
