We loved the identity that we developed for the rebranding of Bards Walk retail outlet in Stratford-upon-Avon. As did the client, Aviva Investors. We're now feeling doubly pleased that we were obviously setting trends with our retro-look as Tesco's rebranding of its Everyday Value range proves. Watch our space for more trends coming soon!

As chocolate lovers in the HG office we were interested to see last week that Kraft had decided upon the new name for the corporate brand that will be behind the consumer brands including Cadbury’s. Created through employee engagement the new brand was revealed with the name 'Mondelez'. The inspiration for the name came from suggestions from both Europe and America where the words 'Monde’ meaning ‘world’ in Latin, and ‘delez’ meaning ‘delicious’ were merged together.
We read with interest the way that this new brand had been developed only to find a few days later that the combination of... Read Article >

At Happy Giraffe we clock up the miles travelling the length and breadth of the country working with Happy clients. On our way back from a recent brand workshop, we were pleased to be able to liven the return journey up by playing a little game of 'I spy' that involved spotting Happy Giraffe client-branded vehicles. Always nice to see your work on display. And to confirm (especially if Mr Motorway policeman happens to be reading this) all photos were taken by the passenger and not the driver!
