  • Emily Wratten Dance Fitness
    Emily Wratten Dance FitnessEmily Wratten Dance Fitness is a company built around their customers, offering a range of classes that aim to get everyone moving. A clean typographic approach was taken so the focus on the information delivered is clear, simple and easy to digest. This was paired with the splashes of the brand colour turquoise, used on the logo and imagery to create an impactful brand identity which is instantly recognisable among competitors. The branding was rolled out across both print and digital marketing
