Fox Electric Inc

Logo Design  |  Branding  |  Graphic Design

We really enjoyed working with Evan Foxcroft of Fox Electric Inc to create his logo and brand identity. Starting up a new business can be very exciting but also terrifying and overwhelming. Evan had all the electrical and trade experience, but didn't really know where to start with logo design or branding. We were able to work with him on a few different ideas and really had fun with the design process! His whole family got involved and the resulting logo is very personal and meaningful.

Back-to-School Kits

Ecommerce (Shopify)

We created an e-commerce website in a pretty short timeframe to capitalize on a new marketing avenue for an office supply company. We did it all - from design, to customization, to populating products. The store was a smashing success, exceeding sales expectations and offering a smooth ordering and fulfillment process. This project required some creative thinking and custom code editing.

About Us

We met working together in a corporate environment managing Marketing and Operations departments. Over our tenure, we found ourselves collaborating - a lot, and became fast friends because of it. We found that the two departments had to support each other in order to scale and provide a seamless customer experience. However, as we worked with more companies in different industries, we saw time and time again how this wasn't the case and how it negatively impacted businesses. Marketing departments would run campaigns that would bring lots of new customers, but fulfillment would struggle to keep up with the demand or fail to respond to inquiries. Or perhaps Operations would change a process or product without notifying Marketing, who now were making promises that they could no longer deliver. 

Years later we found ourselves talking about how the industry was lacking this holistic approach to digital media, and how providing services should be more about education and system development and not just websites, ads and pretty pictures. We were both also looking for a new adventure and wanted to have more control over the projects we took on. Out of that conversation was born Larkspur Creative - an agency dedicated to helping businesses navigate the digital space and translate that into their physical businesses.

Why "Larkspur"?

Choosing a name for a new business is never an easy task. We followed a process of setting a general theme and also specific criteria to help us brainstorm names. After a few conversations, we found ourselves coming back to the idea of “seed” or “sprout”. We liked the idea of having something that evoked nature, as well the idea of growth for our business, our clients and us personally.

Jessica looked to her own garden for inspiration. That year, a seed had been carried away from the main plants and nestled itself on the other side of her garden. We loved this idea - that a plant would not only thrive, but travel from it’s “base of operations” and reach new areas. It was a wonderful metaphor for what digital marketing is all about. After some research into these types of plants, Larkspur was the one that stood out to both of us!

I recently worked with Kristina at Larkspur Creative Inc on producing a customer facing product catalog. I knew what I wanted but had no time to spend on it myself. Kristina was very easy to talk to and took direction very well while offering her expertise and producing exactly what we wanted in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend Larkspur Creative Inc and will be using them again in the future!!

Excellent experience with Larkspur! I get constant comments of appreciation for my logo/design work thanks to Kristinas great work on what started as a very basic conceptual drawing. Through the process I was about as difficult as a customer could be with constant minor detail changes which she accommodated quickly and accurately along with creative options I hadn't thought of. It was clear that they are passionate about their work and making a product their customer is happy with. 10/10!

I approached Kristina to help me design a logo. I gave her a description, and she responded with several logos to chose from. It was difficult to chose only one, they all fit what I wanted. She's very good at what she does. Thanks for my gorgeous logo 🌺
