What we do at Elephantshoe

James and I are often asked, "What do you do at Elephantshoe?" I thought today I would write a small post to share the different sections of our Ellieshoe business. Please feel free to contact us if you perhaps have any questions. 

At Elephantshoe we specialise in stationery design, branding, styling and stocking products that lead to a life more lovely. Whether customising your home or business or commissioning something special for an event, we would love to help. From ideas to branding to styling and design, our passion lies with simple, beautiful and honest solutions. “To life” we say as we raise our glasses, would you like some flags, place cards or bunting with that?

PAPERIE :  Event, Wedding and Personal Stationery

From weddings to corporate events we design all the event stationery that you may need. Save the dates, menus, invitations, seating charts, table numbers or even a tag that says “I came to dance”, whatever will add a bit of shine, a bit of smile and a lot of best day ever, we would love to do.

BRANDING : Logos, Icons and Corporate Identity

This is our fancy business voice – would you like a Corporate Identity sir or madam? If you’re just starting out, or feel like something new or find your business growing up a little, a logo and business card or two may be in order. We don’t have anything against the big chaps but we do love to bring a little bit of you into what we do, after all it’s your baby, so off you go to that big meeting and we’ll do the rest.

STYLING : Photo Shoots, Dessert and Candy Tables

There’s the photographer who takes the beautiful pictures and then there’s the stylist that makes sure the stuff in the picture is beautiful. We aren’t photographers. But we do like to style both corporate and wedding photo shoots, including the sourcing of props, creating complementary stationery and not forgetting the sweeter things in life, we do scrumptious dessert and candy tables for weddings, christenings and birthdays.

Sneak Peek - Blackframe Photography Branding

A little sneak peek at the NEW Brand Identity that Elephantshoe have designed for Blackframe Photography. Blackframe were the most perfect clients and we loved every moment of this project! The best way to describe the process is, "it was like baking a delicious & yummy chocolate cake". We had all the right ingredients and Blackframe's insanely creative and lovely photography was the perfect inspiration. The design is a reflection of Blackframe as a creative photography studio, Andre and Maritsa have a true love for the work they do, they are authentic and honest with an appreciation for beautiful things. The work they do is romantic, classic and timeless.
