Purouge is a brand design studio situated in Johannesburg, South Africa, established in 2010 by the business owner, Carin Shaw.

Purouge means Pure Red and is derived from the French words “Pur Rouge”.

We are passionate about design and enjoy working with our clients to find unique, tailor-made design solutions for communication material and their company brand, whether the requirement is for a brochure layout, advertorials, signage, invitations, packaging design or any other requirement they may have.

We specialise in logo design and the application of the approved logo to the various required elements. A logo data sheet is always included showcasing the pertinent information about the logo, fonts and logo colours. This can be expanded to a full corporate identity manual stipulating the guidelines for the stationery, branding guidelines for corporate gifts, signage, clothing etc.

Purouge enjoys to be involved with the strategic process to plan a design theme for an event from the “Save the date” to the “Thank you note” which may include an invitation, name tags, menu, table seating plan, place cards etc.

We believe that the sky is the limit and look at each design request individually.

Purouge furthermore offers a bespoke stationery and gift range which is available directly from Purouge or visit us at markets in Johannesburg. Please follow us on Facebook to receive posts about the markets.

We are privileged to assist the following clients (in no particular order) with their design requirements:

Rand Merchant Bank, Thomson Reuters, HL Hall & Sons, Halls Fresh, Eggbox Marketing and Communications, Selati Game Reserve, Farmwise, GLA, MES, Nspired Style, VVM, Hoërskool Linden, Rubicon Risk, Signa, The Daily Buzz and Avior to name a few.
