Beats and Seams review: Angela Malik

Here’s a great review from Beats and Seams for Angela Malik’s Modern Asian Deli in Ealing. Our designers really enjoyed this project and it’s brilliant to see the deli full of life:

“Before I even walked into the deli – which by the way is located in a lovely corner of Ealing with a pretty view – I knew I trusted it. Do you ever get that when you walk past a restaurant or cafe and you immediately know not to go in? Well this deli’s brilliant white exterior and colourful logo certainly didn’t let that happen!

I was attracted to a clean, calm and colourful interior which was very welcoming, as were the staff. Their friendliness was genuinely out of this world.”

DesignLSM Brand Refresh

DesignLSM took the decision to refresh our brand as part of a drive to better promote our branding offer and strengthen our position in an increasingly international market.

Undertaken by our own branding team, the logotype is a simple bold sans serif which suits an embossed finish, which is a feature of DesignLSM’s new suite of stationery printed on GF Smith Mohawk and Colorplan papers. Our website has also been refreshed to accommodate all devices and provide a simple clear portfolio platform.

We are confident our rebrand will serve us well as we continue to grow and build upon our diverse client base.
