I have worked recently with Laurenne in re-designing my business cards. She took the time to understand my businesses core services and ensured that those points visibly stuck out on my business cards. She looked carefully at what style font to use and colours, along with card quality. I wanted a professional card that stood out and was a talking point and this was achieved.
Laurenne has recently redesigned my business cards. She quickly identified what I needed and was comfortable with whilst also tactfully suggesting changes which I had not previously considered. She was spot on. The end result is professional and identifies with my core values and business. She has boundless energy and enthusiasm for what she does and an eye for detail. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Laurenne was quick to act when I realised I had left it rather late to reorder compliment slips and business cards from my previous supplier. I was happy with her quote, the revised proof for comp slips shot back with the requested amendments made perfectly, and I received the finished articles within a week. Better still, the print quality was superior to my old ones! Very professional service, highly recommended.
I'd seen many examples of Laurenne's wonderful design work, and so asked her to redesign my business logo, and produce some new business cards for me. Design..colours..fonts.. finishes...card stock - all a mystery to me, but second nature to Laurenne. I'm so pleased with the result, and the attention to every detail of the finished cards. I would thoroughly recommend
Laurenne at Hound Dog Creatives designed and produced our company business cards for us. The word I would use to describe the cards is 'quality' - we could have probably got cheaper cards from Vistaprint but we paid a little bit extra and were really happy with the results. Thank you Laurenne
Laurenne has worked on various client projects with Action Stations Marketing over the years. Her ability to deliver on time, on budget and consistently exceed expectations sets Laurenne far apart from the rest of the pack!
Laurenne is a very professional individual, easy to work with and comes up with some great designs, all within the specified timelines and competitively priced. I would highly recommend Laurenne's services and commitment.
When I started my business, Laurenne helped me produce my business cards. Her guidance on the design, layout and quality to use was really helpful. Laurenne understood my needs and discussed any issues with me so I felt happy with the final product. I subsequently returned for the production of my business leaflets. I get positive comments about both of them and am happy to recommend Laurenne to others.

Project: To redesign and distribute the Porsche members club magazine.
Brief: To generate an increase in advertising revenue from the Porsche members club magazine.
Result: 250% increase in advertising revenue, and improved printing rates.
Alongside a need to generate improved advertising revenue through the members club magazine, Porsche Club were looking to create a magazine more in line with their brand vision and identity. Hound Dog Creatives took the existing magazine concepts of two magazine communications (a monthly black and white production and a quarterly colour magazine) and amalgamated the two in order to create one direct mail communication which supported the Porsche brand identity. We created a customer flow through the magazine and introduced dramatic feature pages to instill visual creativity and excitement for the reader. The result was a 250% increase in advertising revenue and the added benefit of more efficient production through our negotiated printing rates.
Project: Creation of brand assets for Waiting, a ski/snowboarding expedition to Siberia.
Brief: Design brand visual identity, create and source all branded apparel for the expedition.
Being keen skiers, this project we absolutely loved! We were brought on board for the project to create a visual identity for the expedition and to advise, source and create the brand apparel for all participants. From thermals to ski boot bags, solar panel chargers to layered down jackets, we created a full kit of branded goods. All of the items had the newly designed logo embossed or featured to create a unique and smart brand identity. We even created a temporary tattoo logo to be used by participants. This tattoo logo design was then sold to the tattoo manufacturer for direct online consumer sales. We used our worldwide network to source all the optimum resources for this project and didn’t forget the finishing touches; presentation boxes with branded parcel tape for participants located throughout Europe.
Project: Graphic design of brand toolkit, all advertising materials, new project production and website redesign.
Brief: Design and produce a brand toolkit of advertising assets and business stationery, design packaging for new product range and supporting launch marketing brochure, website redesign and introduction of e-commerce transactions.
Result: Incremental revenue through the new e-commerce platform and online sales capability.
We started working with Absolute Cuisine to produce high quality business stationery, flyers and adverts to support their ongoing marketing calendar of activity. Following this success, we continued to support Absolute Cuisine in their diversification strategy to produce a new range of ready meals, soups, cakes and biscuits. We designed and printed all the packaging for this range, along with a take out menu and 44 page show case brochure for the business inclusive of lunches, dinner parties, canapés, buffet, afternoon teas. We provided a new customer flow for the brochure supported by quality images to create a visually impactful branded brochure.
To support the new business direction and success we further designed a new website for Absolute Cuisine and introduced e-commerce to the business, providing opportunity to sell the new products online. Through a new, fresh design, search optimised and branded website content and strong UX e-commerce.
Project: Graphic design of Kraft labels for Artisan Distillery and sourcing of brand compatible bottles.
Brief: To design the label identity of a local distillery eau-de-vie and support production through the sourcing of bottles.
Working with a distillery producing prestigious eau-de-vie, using locally sourced fruits and ancestral traditions in production, we created the visual identity of their product through the design of Kraft labels. We also sourced brand-appropriate bottles from Germany, to complement the overall aesthetic of the product and bring the local and traditional identity to life and in front of the consumer.
