We can also design icon and incidental graphics for your web pages, here are some examples:
Sholden School (Deal) logo design
“Recently, I approached Oast House Media to design a new logo for our school; Sholden Primary School. From start to finish the whole process was exceptionally smooth and as a local company to the school Nigel’s personal contact was invaluable. Our old logo was a bit tired and didn’t reflect the changes in the school we wanted to convey. We had some idea of what we wanted and after an initial meeting Nigel came back with some ideas that afternoon. After some redrafting we came up with a brilliant new logo which we are really pleased with.”
Steve Owen, Head teacher
“I didn’t realise that the logo design you created for my business cards could be used for my new van, you saved me £120 redesign costs and the signage company want to use you for their logo designs as well. Many thanks”

About our logo design service
Our logo design service offers a professional solution for your corporate ‘look and feel’. We find that many of our new clients have no corporate strategy or archiving which exposes them to re-design costs in the future – we can help.
Your logo is probably the first element of your business that a potential customer will see, so wherever it is used it must look professional in appearance and usable for ALL media.
In order of resolution, these are your potential logo uses:
- Workwear (embroidery)
- Fax broadcasting
- TV broadcasting
- Website design (desktop to mobile phone)
- Litho Printing (News print adverts)
- Laser printing (large format to business cards sizes)
- Litho Printing (Posters to business cards)
Embroidery is the lowest resolution for your logo use
Your logo has to be compatible with all the above and work on different colour backgrounds like dark clothing (workwear).
It all reads as a bit of a nightmare, but in the right hands it’s simple if you stick to some simple rules like:
- Avoid using images (photos)
- Avoid fine line work
- Avoid soft edges
- Avoid graduated colours
The logo design below is a good example of a multi-media use logo that we designed for a transport company. It uses bold blocks of colour and will hold up on ANY media use. The design also indicates a dark background alternative.
