What we do

Brand building
At KYAK we get to know you, your competitors and your business aspirations and translate the findings into high quality, innovative branding solutions that set you apart from the competition. From producing a stand-alone logo to a full suite of marketing graphics and brand guidelines, however we work with you our personal touch and considerable experience will be the difference between a brand that simply exists to one that works.
Marketing and PR campaigns
The KYAK team has many years of experience developing creative solutions for marketing campaigns. We collaborate with our trusted partners to deliver comprehensive marketing and PR strategies and plans, creating design concepts and final artwork that ensure your products or services have maximum standout, visibility and of course success.
Website and digital design
KYAK produces a wide range of solutions for every digital need. Whether you're looking for a suite of graphics for a social campaign, or a website that promotes your services, facilities or products we can do it all, and do it to an exceptionally high standard.
Design for print
We use a wide range of print providers so that we can tailor your needs and budget with the correct print solution. We have considerable print knowledge within the KYAK team and explore all of the options from small volume digital print through to high volume litho jobs. We consider which material suits your need and your budget, whether there's a special finish or fold that would elevate the item, or if there's another product that may do the job better - perhaps a teardrop flag or a material banner for example. With our excellent and long standing relationships with printers, paper suppliers and specialist print finishers, you can be sure we'll achieve a cost effective and eye-catching outcome for you.
Video and photography
Within the KYAK team we have experts in delivering high quality imagery for your website, your social channels or even adverts for TV. Working with a number of trusted suppliers we develop the design and direction of initial concepts, have full involvement in the planning and oversee the actual productions and final delivery - with your input and approval throughout. Sourcing models for a photoshoot, finding suitable locations, deciding on which director works for a project are all covered by us so you can be sure there are no stones left unturned. The final result is your own large library of high quality, royalty free images or a fantastic video that jumps out at the viewer and really grabs their attention.
Exhibitions and events
The KYAK team have developed many exhibitions stands and items for events over the years. We work closely with expert stand builders, or print companies that produce banner stands, pop up displays, merchandise, leaflets and booklets, video and more. By understanding what you're looking to achieve from an event and the customer journey we develop a plan and creative suggestions and take them all the way through to delivery.

Highly recommended.”

“Working with Rob and the team at KYAK has been brilliant. I am absolutely delighted with the service I have received and the finished products are outstanding.

I was hesitant about using a company to develop branding and produce a website for my business, but having worked with Rob and the team I can’t believe I hesitated! Their professionalism and customer service are second to none and the concepts they developed were unique and captured the ethos behind my business perfectly.

Rob helped me through every stage of the process and made it as stress free as possible. He was super friendly and nothing was ever too much to ask, with every detail taken care of.

I would definitely recommend using KYAK Studio!”

“A big shout out to Rob and the team bringing my ideas to life. From someone who is a little less imaginative like myself and needs guidance, I highly recommend these guys. The initial brand review provided clarity and guidance on what the best process was and then into the development phase of the process, giving me chance to create content, add features, tweak, chop/change different ideas, ending in the final result.

If you are looking for rebranding, marketing and an online presence I highly recommend the KYAK Studio team.”

“Juggling the thought of a full rebrand whilst staying on top of my day-to-day work was daunting, but thankfully working with the KYAK Studio team has made the whole process a breeze! I was incredibly impressed with their creativity, fast response and overall support and guidance, even when I needed to pick their brains on matters outside of their remit. We collaborated over initial ideas so that they could then evolve these into a smart, modern, impactful design and brand concept that completely met the mark of what I was looking for. Their expertise in the fitness, sport and leisure industry meant they understood the target audience my brand needed to appeal to and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.”

“I approached KYAK to design my logo and help create both business cards and social media assets and I wasn’t disappointed: A keen eye for detail and design and the ability to integrate that with the brief I’d given. What resulted was a high-end and sleek look which I was thrilled with. I valued both their creative input and the years of experience brought from working within the health and fitness industry. I would highly recommend KYAK based on the result and the ease of the process.”
