Castlefield is a boutique luxury branding studio. We create striking and resonant brand identities, product packaging, and event and business stationery for high-earning clients worldwide.
We have the pleasure of working with top-tier clients who, like us, value not only excellence in design, but also genuine connections with people. Our goal is to provide you with a positive and meaningful experience as we work to create something incredible for you.
Who We Help
We work with diverse clients anywhere in the world. The majority of our clients earn 6- to 8-figures and work in beauty, fashion, design, the arts, events, music, food & beverage, travel, or similar, but we’ve worked with clients in law, tech, and professional sports as well.
Great design and branding aren’t solely about aesthetics; they also weave a story that connects with an intended audience. We are passionate about creating bespoke designs that are as impactful as they are stunning, with each touchpoint telling another chapter of who you or your brand are.
How We Help
We help clients elevate or maintain the quality of their brand by creating designs that are custom-tailored to their needs and audience. Professional, cohesive, and attractive, our work helps them attract, book, and sell to their ideal clients and customers, thereby increasing their revenue.
There are no fine silks or glittering pearls in our atelier, but our custom designs are no less luxurious or fashionable. We work with the best people to ensure that the quality of any printing and production matches the quality of the beautiful designs we craft for you.
Why We Help
We are passionate about helping great people and great brands succeed, and believe that high-quality design can create meaningful change—on a micro or macro level—when paired with wonderful services and products.
Our mission is to help: by creating and maintaining beautiful identities that help our clients connect and communicate with their audience, and by helping communities around the world through philanthropy.
Our Brand Values
For clients who are not sure where to start or which services would be the most beneficial, our brand audits are a perfect place to start. During the 45-minute call, we will discuss your brand’s history (if it is already established) and goals in order to gain an understanding of which services you need. After our call, you will be provided with a custom proposal.
A strong brand identity is built on a strong base of knowing who your brand is and what its values, purpose, goals, audience, and mission are. Our strategy sessions will help define and solidify its personality, positioning, and messaging.
