A great website is a visual first impression for your audience. It must be:
1. built to to the highest web standards.
2. be mobile and tablet optimised
3. be structured to make the most out of the google ranking system.
4. Be clear, easy to read, navigate and NOT over complicated.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
1. What kind of styles do you like
2. what other websites / logos do you like the look of
3. do you have a current website or logo
4. What don't you like
5. What inspires you in business
Describe your creative process.
Out creative purpose is to create, we love designing, whether it be visual or the technical layout of a website. We get as much joy as hopefully our client will get. All out projects are a team effort with us and the client, we become a team that can remain for years to come, we live with the creation as does our customer.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
We usually need very little if we are starting everything from scratch. As from the question we may ask (above) we may need depending on your project.
Your current logo design file
Website FTP details
Most of the time, we create these from new, which is great it allows us to manage and keep all our client details together.
What do you love most about your job?
The creative aspect, designing a logo, a brand, bringing a website to life.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I Karl Helliwell joined my first business at 19 and became a director, that was in 2006. From then on we built a client base that we still work with today. Elixir White was one of our first clients and I refer to that allot; the brand has stood the test of time, I still get comments and referrals from it today! I think that sums it up. But to be specific I didn't aim to start my own business at the start.
Why should our clients choose you?
I asked a client this question and it comes down to making a relationship, we are generally nice people and so are our clients, we are fair and want to work to the same aim. It's a different way for us to get business through bark, I don't think just putting a quote together for a service cuts it, I think we need to meet, that must be more important than committing to a quote. I would say this to people looking to buy a service on Bark, meet the company first, you might be happy you did.
All our sites are built on the WordPress platform. These sites, along with logo design and the branding was done by the Helliwells team. We offer full service support, from registering your new domain to hosting and helping set up and manage your mailboxes. http://helliwells.co/website_design/
We love logo design and bringing a new business idea to life. Branding is such an important part to get right; it matters to us that the logo is perfect and represents your business from the start, after all it will be around for years to come. After designing your logo and brand we make it available as a vector format, this makes it easy for you to get it printed on marketing material. These final stages also help us define what your website will eventually become. http://helliwells.co/logo-design/
We do all aspects of graphic design, from cafe / restaurant menu design to book layouts, see examples below. Menu: http://helliwells.co/kitchen-gets-v2-menu-and-new-uniforms/ Book Layout: http://helliwells.co/the-feather-tree-fairies-e-book-hits-amazon/

The Sugar Club Beauty
The Sugar Club by Abigail Konechny We are really excited to show you our latest logo and brand for The Sugar Club, opening at the end of November in Skipton. We have worked with Abigail on many projects over the years and are so excited about what’s to come. The logo is a little hint at the overall branding style; Crushed Diamond & Gold are an addition that will feature on the website and in the new salon. Abigail has announced the news on her Facebook page today. We’ll keep you posted on the website launch and post some photos of the new salon before the opening.

Dawn Alderson & Co
Website and Logo... dawnalderson.co.uk Dawns Review: When I was looking to set up a new website for my new beauty salon, Karl came highly recommended and I wasn't disappointed. We worked together to set up an amazing site and with Karl's expertise and vast knowledge, we now have a website which clients compliment all the time. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Karl and he always processes my endless updates so efficiently. Fab guy to work with - I would always recommend Karl to anyone wishing to launch a new website or simply update an existing one.
Zaxity is a team of talented software developers with a key objective to help businesses realise their goals by building beautifully simple web applications. The design of the Zaxity logo represents multi-layer and dynamics while maintaining simplicity. Review by Josh Freeman. Karl at Helliwell Design has worked with me at Zaxity on a number of project from our own logo and branding to our client simple requests for a new logo or even a redesign of their current brand. Unlike most graphics design agencies I've worked with in the past, Karl can come up with ideas with very little input and can evolve them to a final product with ease. I'd recommend him highly to anyone that needs graphics or design work, don't waste your time elsewhere go straight to Helliwell Design.
