David Appleton, a wonderful actor and all round lovely chap has narrated our very own brand film with character, warmth and clarity.
Once we’d settled on the script (probably version 101), finalised the storyboard and chosen the music, it was essential that we found the right voice to stitch the whole film together. David’s subtle Northern charm coupled with his quiet but self assured confidence is music to our ears.
We (David & Faye) are adopted Mancunians who have lived in the great city of Manchester for a big part of our adult lives now.
Personally speaking, Manchester is probably the only place outside of my home town of Newcastle where I’ve felt no bias whatsoever. Nobody cares what you look like, what you sound like or where you come from… only where you’re at.
Terrorism won’t change that.
We often give each other needle in the studio. Sometimes it’s about our taste in kerning, other times it’s about our taste in music (or lack of) – and we also regularly partake in acupuncture sessions with Phil Trubshaw.
So we’ve created an identity for Phil that gets straight to the point of what he does… naturally.
Our successful strategic rebrand for Jesmonite has resulted in a significant increase in international sales enquiries – so we’re helping the team extend their global reach and, quite simply – simplify their conversations.
We’ve just completed and launched the first phase of a staged roll-out to provide a comprehensive selection of language options for website visitors – making it easier for international customers to understand the key benefits of Jesmonite’s premium decorative building materials.
As part of our commitment to build and nurture a strong brand culture for BJS Home Delivery (on the inside as well as out), we’ve helped the team to create their inaugural Stars of 2016 awards ceremony.
Trophies were handed out in recognition of the tireless effort and dedication provided by the delivery, customer service and warehouse teams – who overcome demanding operational and service-led challenges week in, week out.
Congratulations to the winners and the whole team.
Early last year two great storytellers, Bowie and Eco, passed away. Now, early in 2017, we have also lost John Berger – not only a great storyteller, but also a phenomenal theorist and critic of storytelling in all its forms.
Many of us who studied Art & Design have read his renowned book of critical reflection on the visual world – helping us form a stronger understanding of how, as practitioners, we shape the ‘media experience’.
John Berger helped us all to see more clearly.
2016 has been a mixed bag to say the least – a funny old year, a real roller coaster of ups and downs where it feels like the whole world doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going… It’s been exhausting.
So let’s have a laugh, take some time to unwind and drink in those precious moments with family and friends – oh, and enjoy the sprouts.
Dent manufacture innovative sensors which check thousands upon thousands of miles of thread running through colossal textile machines – all to ensure production doesn’t get tied up in knots.
To highlight Dent’s thoughtful and technologically progressive approach – we recently launched their ‘sense of innovation’ campaign at the world-renowned ITMA Asia expo in Shanghai.
