Do you need to rebrand your business?

Your brand is the public face of your business.
No business today can afford to rest on its laurels. Your business may be keeping up with economic and market changes but is your brand keeping pace?

Whatever your reason for rebranding; be it economic and operational expansion, technological innovation, growth and  change, your company’s brand must remain consistent with the latest and greatest your business has to offer.

Is you logo still modern or could it be refined to meet current design trends? Have you introduced social media? Is your website up to date, current, fresh & modern? Are your business and profile photo’s current?

Benefits of a rebrand: –

1. Gain competitive advantage
2. Stimulate growth
3. Long-term market expansion
4. Innovation = profitability

At Design House I completely rebrand my website and promotional images at least every two years. Check out the new portfolio section of my website HERE!

Gayler Legal – Rebrand + Social Media

December 10, 2013

Gayler Legal

“At GAYLER LEGAL we “take a different view“.

Why is that? Because we always look for the quickest and most cost effective outcome for our clients. We tend to look outside the square – we recognise that there is not always a [costly] legal solution to your problems or needs.

Long ago we recognised that our business was about People.  That is why our many clients have rewarded us with their loyalty and why repeat business is a corner stone of our success as a provider of legal services.

At GAYLER LEGAL we don’t aspire to be the largest legal firm on the Fraser Coast. Our aspirations are quite straightforward – we aim to provide the best legal service to our loyal clients in the most cost efficient manner in those areas of law in which we practise.”

Organic goodness delivered straight to your door!

The Frog Shop - Fraser Coast

The Frog Shop – Fraser Coast (Business Cards & Shopping Cart)

“Sending out a massive thanks to Jeanette….We run an organic business supplying fruit and veggie boxes, and other organic products to the Wide Bay region and up until now had been using emails and facebook to take orders, so the time had come for us to develop an online store. Our aim for the website was for it to be easy to use, fresh and funky. Jeanette provided us with all of this and we’re so stoked to have it up and running. All our customers are raving about it too. We would recommend Design House to anyone!”
– Celine Louie

“Run by Celine and Kellee, two motivated mums keen to spread the organic word, our aim is to share our passion about good, clean organic food to as many households as possible. We believe organic living can be affordable, and healthy living can be fun.

We’ve also got a team of dedicated helpers who make FROG possible. Without all our amazing, and very generous helpers, FROG wouldn’t be what it is today.

FROG isn’t just a retail business, its a community, and an experience. By choosing to support FROG you’ll not only get yummy food, but you’ll also be joining a large community of like-minded people all working towards healthier bodies, and a healthier planet.

Boxes contain a set mix of fresh seasonal fruit and veggies- Usually around 3-4 types of fruit, and 6-12 types of veggies. These vary weekly depending on availability.”

The North Pole Shoppe! – North Queensland

August 17, 2012

The North Pole Shoppe! - North Queensland

Logo, Business Cards, Facebook & Website (shopping cart) design & development.


“Having a daughter like Fontaine is inspiring!!! Pole Fitness has taken the world, and me, by storm, and although, initially, her dream and mine was to open a pole fitness studio in Townsville, her intrastate, interstate and international training programs have instead culminated in the creation of The North Pole Shoppe, an online store that caters to this new regime.
We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Pleaser USA and Royal Leather Works, two organisations who provide the exquisitely designed and manufactured shoes and crash mats necessary to complement our pole fitness enthusiasts around the world.
Although still in the early stages of development our website will soon showcase the products which we know will be as attractive and innovative as the sport itself.
In the meantime, we’d like to welcome you to our Facebook Page and look forward to you sending us your good wishes for our exciting new venture.
Our thanks to Jeanette at Design House for bringing our dream to fruition!”

Having an idea of what you want is all well and good, but when it comes to making that idea come to life, that’s another story! I knew what I wanted my website to look like but it took the magic of Jeanette Maynes to make it happen. Jeanette has the innate ability to decipher your ideas and provide you with a complete package that blends perfectly with your product range. From letterhead to business card to website and beyond, you can’t go past Design House if you want a winning corporate image. Thank you Jeanette.

Design House website undergoes a Revamp!

February 24, 2011

Design House website undergoes a Revamp!It’s very important that every couple of years you give your business look a revamp / overhaul to keep in line with current design trends, if not sooner!

Websites require continuous refinement and improvement to keep content fresh and the look and feel visually pleasing.

A revamp does not mean one has to completely overhaul the website – do small incremental changes that lead to a new template design / website look, perhaps color revision or updated content.

If your website is out of date and obsolete it can potentially lose customers for your business.

While it is important that your website looks clean and professional, it is more important that you concentrate your efforts on the content, promotion of your product / services, the use of a simple straight forward navigation and make sure it downloads fast.
