What the 70's is going on?

Can you guess who this is....No...?

Well its actually Jonny in 1975 sporting his new Spencer corduroy flares, 'Slim Jim' pattern shirt and TUF platform shoes... This retro image is a genuine picture taken in Somerset. You can see that I have always had a flair (sic) for fashion...even if it does look somewhat naff retrospectively...(actually I think I look pretty cool-  just look at the 70s style milk bottles!).

Maybe I should get all my team to bring in retro pictures to share - yes!!

If you want to see what I am wearing today give me a call and I'll come over and show you and at the same time we can talk about all the lovely design work I can help you with...go on you know you want to...01332 291141.

Beefeaters and Mini - an unlikely combo...

On a visit to Marbella I spotted this funky point of sale display in the Duty Free area of Malaga airport. I love this kind of thing, its a genuine mini front end but with the addition of the Beefeater brand added in. A fantastic way of associating the brand with London and its heritage.

If you want a funky point of sale or if you want to make a lasting impression why not give is a call on 01332 291141 and see what we can do for you.

One that got away...

I love designing logos, in fact all the team here enjoy it. So when my friend Natascha asked me to help her with a branding for her new venture, I thought it was a great offer!

The design I began to develop was meant to represent an up-market exclusivity and 'consultancy' feel. I think I achieved that look even at this early stage (the image you see is only an initial scamped concept) Using an illustrated image coupled with a classic font and stylish typography all combines to deliver a very sophisticated look and feel.

But why is this one that got away..?

Well, as far as I know, the name keeps changing and she decided to let her business colleague do the design in Portugal instead - still you can't win them all!

We look forward to seeing the end results though and wish her all the best in her venture...go girl!!

Swatch This Space

When Denmaur were challenged to create a swatch for a range of very light weight paper they asked us to help develop a special swatch which allows the light paper to be contained presented in a very clean and effective way.

The result is a swatch hybrid - this comprises a sleeve and insert, with a greybeard backing (ideal for supporting the lightweight paper). This allows user to review the paper and yet keep it clean and easy to access.

The sample is for Denmaur's Revive 100 brand - which is a recycled material. The swatch has been a great success and the format will now be rolled out for all of Denmaur's lighter sample stocks.

If you need to present your products in a compelling and effective way then why not give us a call on 01332 291141 and we can help you to reach new customers and make the most of your product or service.

Go West!

It was a real pleasure earlier in June to be invited to Westfield Health's internal Comms Day.

The day is designed to give Westfield staff an opportunity to learn and gain knowledge about various company activity.

Feedback on the day itself was very positive with everyone involved having input and as far as I could tell everyone seemed really upbeat and excited but the prospect of the future.

Professor Steve Hake was the guest speaker and enthralled his audience with a superb talk about social health and wellbeing, along with some shocking facts about lifespan and 'healthy lifespan' disparity between different demographics.

PE Creative were in attendance because we produced all the voxpop videos and presentation material used on the day. We were also able to help by creating and unique microsite illustrating the Westfield timeline for activity. This interactive tool allows staff to see who and what is happening within the Group as well as being able to feedback to the HR department.

HR Manager Fiona Lowe commented "Thanks for all your help Jonny, its been a fantastic day and feedback is really great"

As a special guest it was a real privilege to have been invited and it gave me an insight into the culture and background of the Group, which will prove essential for future projects.

If your organisation wants to improve its internal commas then feel free to contact us on 01332 291141 and we can help with your event.
