Logo design and website for Japanese Knotweed Plus

Japanese Knotweed Plus are a local business that specialise in the treatment of Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and other invasive plants around Manchester and Lancashire as a whole.

And earlier this year, the business partners, Stephen and Igor contacted the team at Think to discuss the possibility of helping them and their business with a new website. After an initial meeting to discuss how we can help, we agreed to completely rebrand the business starting with a new logo. This was an important step for them. Having a logo design that reflects the quality of the business lays the foundation for the businesses entire visual look and feel or brand identity.

So, the first stage was to redesign their existing logo to make the business stand out in the market. With the second stage being the creation of a highly functional, responsive website, including providing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

A key piece of information provided by them was that they treat Japanese Knotweed with a precise application of poison, they do not remove it because this is currently against Environmental Agency guidelines.

The concept for the logo design was based on this value proposition that Japanese Knotweed Plus offer. The chosen design included a geometrically accurate leaf to reflect this approach to sit along with a custom abstract typeface which suggested the disappearance of the invasive weeds.

This was underpinned by using a gradient suggesting positive change, as the colours merge from a dark green to a light green.

Once the basic brand items, such as business cards and a van livery were completed, we rolled out the branding into the website. This reinforced the brand and will help to keep the online presence consistent with other collateral.

We continue to work with Japanese Knotweed Plus, currently focusing on improving the SEO of their website.
