Marketing & Branding

The world is busy, chaotic, crowded. If you want to get noticed, you have to shout, right? Shout loud enough and you’ll end up with more customers than you can handle.

If only it was that simple. 

Sometimes a business can shout itself hoarse (flyers, emailers, Adwords, ads for print and web etc.) and still not make itself heard. The problem isn’t what they’re shouting, it’s the voice they’re using to make all that noise. If that sounds like you, maybe it’s time to consider elocution lessons.

How can we help your business?

Logo Design

A business is more than just a logo. It’s you, your staff, your customers, your products and services. It’s the stuff you care about. And a logo is more than just the name of your business. It’s a banner, a flag and the stamp of your identity.

Flyers & Brochures

A well-designed brochure or flyer remains an impactful and cost-effective medium for reaching people. In fact, we like them so much that we use them to decorate our fridge door. After all, who doesn’t love a free bottle of wine with takeaway orders over £25?

Planet Rock

With over one millions listeners a week, Planet Rock occupies a worthy position as the UK’s number one radio station for ‘rockers, rollers and right-out-of-controllers’*. As the strap line says: on your radio dial it’s ‘where rock lives’. We were already pretty familiar with the brand, therefore, when we pitched for the opportunity to create the station’s new identity. 

We’re not going to deny that Planet Rock’s final choice from our selection of submitted concepts wasn’t our absolute favourite (can you guess which one we liked most?), but such is life. The brand has gone from strength to strength since it started broadcasting in 1999 so it’s clear they understand their audience better than anyone. We’re just thrilled to have made a contribution to what is a fantastic, much-loved (and very much-needed) radio station.
