Luminous Media makes the start-ups to watch in 2017 list
Wales Online and the Western Mail recently ran a feature on the 35 Welsh start-ups to watch in 2017. Much to our surprise Luminous Media came in at No. 21 on the list.

The line-up was composed of “companies pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation” who pay “testimony to the extraordinary capacity for innovation that can be seen in towns, cities and countryside across our land.”

The start-up scene in Wales is vibrant, and it is a real honour for us to have our work recognised in this way. However, the stuff that makes our hearts swell with pride is when we get to work on projects like the one below…

New logo for an all Wales charity

In other news we are delighted to see the new logo and branding for Sight Cymru being rolled out. We began the branding project in January with the Investigation and Research phases. The brief from Sight Cymru was to produce a simple design suitable for those with vision impairment as well as the healthy sighted, and with a preference for using black and yellow to assist those with sight problems.

As well as the new logo we designed several new branding elements including new banners, email signatures, business cards, leaflets, letterheads, social media graphics, and a new design for the quarterly newsletter.

We settled on three designs, and there was a clear preference among the senior management, trustees, and staff for the heart shaped pupil connected to the rest of the eye. By meeting several times with Sight Cymru we could see that loving those with sight loss really lay at the heart of who they are and what they do.

Sight Cymru CEO Sharon Beckett commented that, “Sight loss inevitably makes visual work a challenge, but you rose to it. Thank you so much. The talent that you guys have is phenomenal.”

Sharon added, “The staff, volunteers, trustees, and most importantly the service users at Sight Cymru want to let you know how pleased we are with our new logo and branding. We had complete consensus on the new logo.”
