Inspirational brand still going strong

Since 2001 Johnny Earle AKA Johnny Cupcakes has gone from selling T-shirts from the boot of his car to owning 5 unique stores across America and one in London! …and has a massive on-line presence selling around the world!  Not only does he produce fantastic limited edition shirts but his stores are a fun and very different customer experience! The interior decor at Johnny Cupcakes boutiques features antique refrigerators, baking racks, a 1930’s dough mixers, (Boston location) a cast-iron wood-burning oven from the 1890s, (also at the Boston location) and even hidden vanilla-scented air fresheners; items are usually displayed on baking trays and inside glass pastry cases!

In 2008, Business Week placed Earle at the top of its “Best Entrepreneurs 25 and Under” list, highlighting his company’s quality products, imaginative promotion, and insistence on self-sustenance! He now travels the world giving inspirational talks on effective branding, entrpreneurship and running a small business.

Having made the decision not to sell out to the big chain stores and keep control of his brand he has gone from strength to strength!

Good work Johnny!

Annual BIAD School of Visual Communication Awards show.

Our very own Paul Castledine was sponsor and judge for the Brand Design category at this years BIAD School of Visual Communication Awards show.
The competition was strong but two young talented designers ( Olly Sorsby & Daniel Cooper ) walked away with the top prize after a few wise words from Mr C.

This year the awards were named after Vaughan Oliver who also gave a very inspiring speech to all the young talent about to embark on their journey into the ‘real world’ of industry.

An interesting evening of awards. Having seen some of the talent picking up awards it bodes well for the future of our creative industry.
