A Dozen Eggs

Meet Fran Collins and Jo Lloyd, a.k.a. branding and design partnership a dozen eggs.

Jo does all her thinking during Pilates (don’t we all…?) and likes picnics, G&T’s, going to new places and trying new things. Fran, meanwhile, unwinds by reading the paper with a good cup of coffee and likes autumn, church, walking the dog, curry and beer.

Tell us a bit about yourselves…

We both recently graduated from the Graphic Communication course at Loughborough University – we decided to take the plunge and start up straight away, and we have loved every minute of it! We work with other start ups and small businesses like ourselves, and have found ourselves working on a wide range of exciting projects. We design logos, websites and branding material to give businesses their own visual identity. It’s been great to watch businesses get their feet off the ground – and go from the ideas stage to reality.

What are your inspirations?

We are inspired by colour palettes, seasons, sketchbooks, books, (on anything!) good typography, new design trends, getting out of the office, art galleries and architecture. You can see all the visual findings that inspire us on our blog.

What is your favourite piece of work you have created?

Fran’s favourite piece of work at the moment is the branding for wedding stylist ‘Flock & Stone’ – the blog is coming soon. The website for another project that we have been working on (Amy Allwright Homeware) is soon to be launched, which includes some rather lovely photography from Holly Booth. Jo’s favourite has to be some of the personalised wedding stationery we’ve produced, particularly Alan & Anna’s Spring time wedding.

Who is your favourite ‘creative’ in your chosen field?

I know most designers will say this – but the favourites are Alan Fletcher and Bob Gill. Their work is timeless, witty and simple – we also love the work of the design company, Spin.
