Who we are

Elizabeth Geddes and Gavin Krasner are Chops for Tea. One of us writes, the other designs. Well actually both of us design. Gavin does some writing too though the jury’s out on whether his penchant for a typo is ironic or not. More important than the demarcation of the roles though — both of us imagine, strategise, create and make things happen through graphic design, copywriting, brand jiggery-pokery, smoke and mirrors, ye olde two card mime trick and simply messing about — though not in boats. No boats. Ever.

Gavin Krasner

Creative Director and wearer of many hats

Gavin wanted to have rotating photos of him wearing various creative hats. Get it. Yeah I got it too and I promptly threw the idea in the bin. Still somehow he’s managed to get this photo in. As for the actual hat shown that’s been upcycled to a dog toy.

Elizabeth Geddes

Actually I’M the Creative Director + copywriter and wearer of many shoes

Lorem ipsum dolor sit ame consetur elit. Just kidding (old graphic designer’s in-joke there). Once upon a time I was a graphic designer but now I’m not: I’m a copywriter — where I should have been all along.

Gavin, #1 and #2. And Pikelet.

What we do

In a word, we communicate. Or, in several more words —

Naming

If you don’t have a name for your idea, product or business we can help you come up with one.

Brand workshops

So you’ve got a name but nothing else? We can give you a map to show you where your brand should be going and how it should behave on the journey.

Visual identity

Once you’ve got some rules about behaviour we can help you define the look and feel of your brand.

Brand guidelines

For anyone working with your brand (both
internally and externally) guidelines provide
clarity and ensure consistency.

 

Copywriting

Personality goes a long way. What you say can
make you instantly more attractive. Or not.

Graphic design

From a simple business card to kitting out the
drivers, pit crew and designing the look of the cars
for the Formula 1 team you want to launch. Hey, you never know.

Marketing campaigns

Working back from understanding exactly what it is you want to achieve, we imagine, strategise, create and then make it all happen across multiple channels.

Who we do it for

Our client base shares our passionate and committed creative vision and this makes for some super working relationships. And we think working with super folk is a super way to work that results in super work. Nice.
