I’ve had the pleasure of helping Elaine Auld develop her brand for Tuppence over the past few months. Tuppence is a new project bringing together old bric-a-brac to create original quirky homeware and gifts. Here is a little iPhone snap of her business card. The full project will be uploaded once the website design is complete!Read More
The new business cards are here just in time for the trip over the Barcelona! It’s the first time I’ll be experiencing OFFF, let’s feed the future, after hearing about the event over creative networks ever since it began! Looking forward to putting faces to names too, one being founder and editor of Designcollector Network – Arseny Vesnin.Read More

This takes me back to 2008. I was invited to work on some initial concepts for Food Should Taste Good. This idea combined the ingredients – one written ingredient/one usage. Feels like so long ago!

After much research, sketching, coffee and design options I’ve chosen my new mark. Designers truly are their own worst client…
The mark is inspired by Old English text book typography—where the S&F are similar in form [see here]. With my love of design and photography the mark naturally lends itself to being symmetrical creating an extra dimension of the heart – without being too overt.
Simplicity is important and helps create a timeless feel.
Over the past month it’s been very busy! So much to organise and lots in the pipeline. At the moment, my portfolio site is in design, a new holding page awaits visitors. Whilst waiting for the new site if you would like to request a PDF version please do get in touch: contact [at] sarahfrance.com. Will be announcing more soon!
A project coming to an end… It has been a pleasure working with Makeup Artist Laura Wilkins. Her business cards are soon to be sent to print and the website is currently in the next phase of design! All very exciting! It’s a great experience to be guiding the brand. Everything is beginning to look and feel near completion! More will be posted on the new portfolio site soon.
Laura Wilkins is a talented freelance make-up artist. Passionate about her work, she is aiming to give out much needed advice on how to get the very best out of your make-up. As well as taking bookings for special events and occasions, Laura also has some very exciting new projects coming up… I better get a move on then! The design process is well underway, one route is already complete.
