This blog comes from our guest blogger Hannah Miles who has been here for work experience this week. Hannah has not only shown off her creative skills whilst at Mzuri, she has also been a big help with several projects during the week. It’s been great having Hannah in the office to help out, and we think she did a fantastic job. We wish her every success in the future. Thank you Hannah! Read her story here:
27th-29th October 2014 - My 3 active days of work experience at Mzuri Design:
To kick off my half term, I have been spending three days in the lovely company of Mzuri Design in Liphook. I hope to take the creative route in life so therefore, going to a graphic design company for work experience is a good starting point. In the past few days, I have been introduced to both the marketing and design side of life. I didn’t really know much about Graphic Design, so when I was asked what I wanted to see within the company, I decided to go with anything they needed doing.
The first day started off with research for artwork for their company Facebook page (image backgrounds for special days of the year with worldwide activities and matching quotes), helping sort out photos for a client’s website and buying 5 massive monster pumpkins for, as you may have guessed, Halloween!
The second day I was involved with designing a possible gift package for the coming Christmas and New Year up ahead and then I was set the task of painting the pumpkins to put outside Mzuri Design. We decided to paint each letter of the company name on each pumpkin in white paint, to match the brand colours.
Today, the third and final day, I helped design a little more of the gift package, was given an insight into what the team does in the design agency and also finished painting the pumpkins and arranged them out across the windowsill (have a look if you can as they are pretty cool).
Overall, in my time here, I have met some very nice people who have helped me understand the varied jobs in Mzuri Design and I hope to come into the world of Graphic Design in my future.

Having worked with Daulby and Tickle for many years, we were pleased to support them when they felt the time for a site refresh had come. Building on the successes of the site we originally built for them several years ago, the updated site has pared down navigation, more comprehensive case study information and detail on the Daulby and Tickle difference. It also features a news page so that the details of new projects, product launches and events can be readily shared with the outside world. The site, now in a rather fetching grey, offsets their work and ties in with their new brochure which we recently developed with them.
We wish the team at Daulby and Tickle every continued success with these two new marketing tools in their arsenal. View the site and lust over their wonderful kitchens here: www.daulbyandtickle.co.uk.

We have recently launched a new website for Wellington College Teaching School Partnership. The website has been designed and built to engage their target audience of schools and strategic partners to promote the work of the teaching school partnership. The site is fully CMS controlled, with the framework on which to build additional functionality and scope as required in the future.
The Wellington College Teaching School Partnership brings schools and strategic partners together in a unique collaboration that is school-led and which focuses upon the needs of educational professionals. Its objective, through cooperation, is to provide a continuum of professional learning opportunities for staff with the desired outcome of improving the educational attainment of pupils in school. The vision is to embed a culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence, and to empower those working in schools to develop a strong learning culture using a self-improving education system and the sharing of best practice.
Users can search and book courses on offer, and access resources across a range of areas, including initial teacher training, professional learning, leadership, school to school support and research.
We have loved working on this project and look forward to continuing to collaborate with the WCTSP team on future developments.

It was with a pride-induced spring in our step that we headed out last Friday night for a well-deserved celebration of 10 years of Mzuri Design. It was a great evening, full of champagne, wine, beer, cocktails, laughter, fun, gorgeous food and great company. We are really proud to be where we are today and thank all of our clients and all of our team for being part of the journey. Here’s to the next 10 years and to the adventures that they hold. Happy 10th Birthday Mzuri!

We are very happy to welcome Naomi to the Mzuri team as our new Marketing Assistant. Naomi is a recent University of Nottingham graduate with a degree in History of Art, and is excited to begin her career in marketing.
When she’s not doing her best to keep everyone organised here, Naomi loves to cook and visit art exhibitions.
Naomi is a very welcome extra pair of hands in the office at a very busy time for us, so we are thrilled to have her here to help. Getting involved in everything from making sure the office run smoothly, taking calls, writing blogs, helping with client projects and just generally turning her hand to everything we throw at her, she has soon made herself indispensible!

We are proud to mention our recent collaboration with Cog Design, Summerhouse Media and Stars Foundation on a very exciting project; the launch of a vibrant and engaging website to promote the Philanthropreneurship Forum, taking place in London on the 13th December this year.
Philanthropreneurship is ‘an entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy’ that subverts the expectation that entrepreneurial efforts are ‘for profit’ alone. The aim of the Forum is to explore how creative philanthropy can go further to bring about innovation and social change. The Philanthropreneurship Forum is co-convened by Professor Rajesh Chandy of London Business School and His Excellency Amr Al-Dabbagh, the Founding Chairman of Stars Foundation.
The site is responsive, content managed and includes video and other features. It is also built with a complex database to support the event management of the Forum, including delegate communications and project management. You can visit the site here.

This weekend Prior’s Field School will host its second annual Arts Fest, from Friday 10th to Saturday 11th October. The event is open to the general public, and promises an exciting array of music, drama and comedy acts as well as inspiring workshops in ceramics, drawing and painting. Tickets for adults and children over 10 can be booked online here.
The event reflects Prior’s Field’s philosophy of having a go and aiming high, with the school being excellent at creative arts.
We were thrilled to create the look and feel for the event, designing and printing an A5 programme featuring all the events and workshops, and producing a banner for promotion across Farnham’s Downing Street. It’s been great to work with Prior’s Field on this project and we wish Arts Fest every success this weekend!

Following our recent work with Tremaines Ltd Accountants on developing their brand and corporate stationery, the company have now moved to smart new offices in Horley, Surrey, so some impressive new signage was a must.
We advised the client on options available to them, provided design options and photographic visuals so they could see how things would look before committing to production, then oversaw the build and fit.
The new office now boasts a reverse printed acrylic sign with chrome fixes near the front door, as well as a large professional facing sign, giving the company real presence.
