Three things we’re loving in…September

We're huge fans of September in the Littlefish office. For starters, it's our birthday and this gives us a chance to celebrate another year of doing what we love for a living and to raise a glass to the fantastic colleagues and clients we've worked with along the way. We also don't mind a bit of rain and colder temperatures if they're accompanied by the beautiful autumnal colours that start to appear at this time

Top five tips for finding inspiration

We might be biased but we believe that the creative industry is one of the best places to be working in. However, as with any job, it comes with its challenges, one of these being a constant need to find inspiration.

A lovely blog from our work experience student, Joe

I have always wanted to try something creative like graphic design ever since I ventured into the world of the Adobe Suite. Why graphic design? Well I like graphic design for two reasons; 1.)

Why it pays to pay for a decent logo

Having been working in design for longer than we care to remember it still never fails to surprise us when potential clients question the value of spending 'too much' money on a logo. To us, it's obvious that a logo is absolutely the most important part of any brand identity but then logos are our passion, they're what we spend our days focussing on so of course they're important to us. To those who have

A project with heart

The saying goes that you should never mix business with pleasure. However, in the world of design, to go against the grain is normally a good thing. So, feeling empowered by this we decided to embark on a project to combine the two great loves of our lives, design and fishing. Our plan is to launch a clothing range aimed at fisherman primarily but that young, fashion conscious males would want to wear outside of

Design portfolio with a difference

Deciding how to market yourself is one of the most important components of running your own business. With this in mind, rather than just relying on our website to demonstrate our ability, we also set about creating a look book portfolio of our design work. The book was a labour of love, designed to showcase our work while also making an attractive coffee table adornment, now perfectly at home in many of our clients' offices

The universal language of good design

GP Pall Mall is the leading Spanish tile agent feeding the UK and Irish markets. Although the company had been operating in the UK for a number of years it hadn't yet completely settled on its brand identity. Littlefish was called in initially to produce a very simple and straightforward presentation for GP Pall Mall to use in a pitch to a well known trade association. The business owner, George, was so impressed with what

Littlefish on Instagram

So there's this thing called Instagram that apparently is quite popular. 300 million users popular to be precise. At Littlefish we love any creative outlet and so we thought if Bieber can do it, so can we. Ok, so we might be a little bit late to the party on this one but it's only because we've just been so busy getting Littlefish going and getting it going well. We don't embark on any project
