Professional advertising design for your company is essential. What may look like a ‘simple idea’ to someone is often anything but.
Your advert has to be good enough to both catch your target audience’s attention immediately and ‘sell’ your product or service to them. Training and experience is needed to achieve this to promote your business successfully.
Direct Mail Design
Direct mail is often thought of as the ‘spam of the post’. However, it provides a snippet of information about your company to a vast audience. Even though the return on mailers is often small, if you do a mail drop of 10,000, and get a return of 8% (as we had with a mail shot we did for a blue chip client of ours), then that means you have a response from a potential 800 new clients.
The design of your direct mail has a substantial impact on its success. If your design does not immediately catch your recipient’s attention and imagination, your direct mail will be binned.
It is vital that your company is ‘seen’ by the world. If no one knows about you, what chance have you of trading successfully?
Your corporate brochure and promotional literature design is important to you. Not only for successfully communicating your particular product or service, but also for telling your potential customers and business partners a great deal about the value you place on quality, professionalism and on them as individual future partners or customers.
You want your company brochure and other promotional literature to increase your business. You do not want it to send a negative message. Poor design can do exactly that. Your corporate literature must communicate its message clearly and concisely to prove a success. While this sounds obvious to many, in some cases this is ignored. Poor 'in-house' design is often used, serving only to obscure the message which it is trying to convey.
Promotional concepts can come in many different guises from point-of-sale design to give-aways. For whichever format, your design needs impact to catch the attention of your targeted audience. Our corporate brochure and literature designs will help to ensure that your company is firmly in the public eye.
Whatever the product, the packaging needs to work within the clients corporate style and marketplace.
Over the years we have designed packaging for a variety of clients. Their requirements range from ice cream cartons, pencil boxes, stapler boxes, shampoo bottles, CD and DVD packaging.
If your product is vying for shelf space in the retail market, you need to ensure that your clients see your product before that of your competitors. We can help you achieve this. We can design and have produced the most eye-catching piece of packaging printed on the most suitable stock.
We have many years experience as exhibition stand designers.
Although often a short life span, great visual impact must be achieved – from single panels, through to more complex requirements. A trade show, conference, seminar or exhibition can eat into the marketing budget, therefore the design must have impact to be cost effective.
Exhibition stand design, whether it be small ‘pop-up’ panels or large display stands, is a competitive market. Stand out from the crowd and provide your company with a selling platform at any trade show.
