Bright Bold Design for Derbyshire Soft Play Startup

Derby, Derbyshire, UK: 9 June 2016 – Derbyshire-based logo & branding creator and graphic designer, Kieran Harrod, is behind the new branding and logo for local new start-up Skyland Soft Play.

Kieran, based at Friar Gate Studios, Derby, has been working in the design industry for 18 years undertook the project alongside the team at Skyeland to create a bright, bold and professional image for their new business venture.

Kieran was tasked with producing a brand that matched the Skyeland commitment and passion for children and families. An important caveat was that the logo had to contain a rubber duck! The final solution celebrated the nature of soft play bricks with a chunky stylised duck design in a variety of bright colours.

Skyeland Soft Play provides soft play, ball pool and bouncy castle hire for baby and toddler parties, christening and weddings. Based in Derbyshire, SkyeLand works with clients across the UK to help create the best experiences for babies, toddlers.

Commenting on the project, Kieran said: “I’m really pleased with the Skyeland designs. Producing a professional brand in this sector is a balance between professionalism and keeping the brand child-friendly. The final solutions do this with aplomb and provides Skyeland with a flexible and deep branding solution.”

On working with Kieran, Andrew Jenner-Dyer of Skyeland stated:

“We were a new business start-up looking to create a fun but professional image for our company. After talking with a number of graphic designers we chose Kieran, who appeared to be the best fit for us. We have since been delighted by all the work he has done for us and are looking forward to working closely with him as our business grows.”
