Taking the Headaches out of Events…

Well here at SVCHQ, in addition to gearing up for a very busy end to 2018, we’ve been hard at work this last few weeks focussed on delivering a large event for one of our clients in Dallas, USA. Our client in the UK had booked a large exhibition space for a trade show and came to us with a wide and varied set of requirements… 

First up we worked with the team and our delivery partners on the ground in the US to design and assemble a beautiful display system that not only drew the eye in a very busy exhibition hall, but also showcased the product beautifully. 

As anyone who has attended these large scale trade shows know though; there is a lot more work goes into these shows than just turning up to a nice looking booth. In addition to this design and production service, we can handle all aspects of a successful event; from handling all onsite bookings and logistics, to health & safety paperwork and construction clearance. 

Over the past few years we have delivered exhibitions for clients everywhere from Las Vegas to Dallas to London and Amsterdam and have a lot of experience handling these kinds of events for our clients. 

In addition to the operational support in delivering this particular event, we also worked with the client on a number of other crucial tasks including the design and production of new marketing and sales literature for the team on the stand, the sourcing and management of hostesses to work with our team to welcome guests and even designing and delivering a number of email campaigns prior to the event to start booking meetings and potential sales for our client before they even get to the airport. 

To talk to us about your requirements for events and how we might be able to assist – get in touch with us today. We look forward to hearing from you! 

Nene Valley Festival Podcast

Nene Valley Festival Podcast

As we’ve posted about a couple of times over the recent weeks and months (and posted about plenty on social media) we’ve been really excited to be working on a new podcast recently for the team at Destination Nene Valley.

Every year, the team at DNV put on the Nene Valley Festival and we were honoured to be bought on board this year to assist with the social media element of the festival.

As well as the usual Facebook / Twitter and other activity around the festival (and the curation of a dedicated festival blog for the first time to bring the festival to life in a little more detail) we were also very excited that the team were keen to go forward with our idea for a festival podcast.

As we’ve noted elsewhere on the blog before (including in our recent bootcamp post on the subject) podcasts are a wonderful medium – for one reason, because they are such a flexible medium to work within. Our favourite thing about them is the way you can use an audio format to share different stories and that flexibility was perfect for telling the story of this years festival – where there was such a wide range of subject matter and events to discuss and cover.

Working with the team at DNV, we quickly devised a format for each show – that balanced pushing some of the key messaging from the organising team, as well as behind the scenes style content that bought the festival to life from the inside – mixed with interviews with the key figures behind the festival and some of the key events taking place across the next few weeks.

Each episode ranged in length from 15 minutes to 40 (depending on the conversation) and was designed to be a conversational, easy to listen to podcast with lots of interesting tit-bits of information from across the various themes of the Nene Valley – from heritage, to the arts, to nature and conservation.

Why not check out a recent episode of the podcast featuring an episode with James Dacre from the Royal & Derngate theatres in Northampton below:

In the meantime, to talk to us about podcasting – and how you might be able to make use of it in your own business, be sure to get in touch and talk to us today!

Christmas packaging, print and design services

Too Early to say Christmas?!

Well while we are still enjoying the last remnants of summer (and indeed hoping the weather stays fine for the upcoming Nene Valley Festival which we are working hard on right now along with our friends at Destination Nene Valley) we are also starting to look slightly further forward as well…

This week – scarily – saw us taking a number of meetings to move along projects for the 2019 Calendar year which will keep us nice and busy, but also of course before then we have to deal with Christmas.

It almost feels odd to even be typing the word so early in the year, but of course as anyone in retail or business knows – the next few months will fly by and so we are already getting to work helping a number of our clients with requirements for the festive season.

Our experience across the worlds of print and merchandise – as well as our extensive Graphic Design expertise – mean that we can easily offer our clients a range of solutions from Christmas cards and gift wrapping options, through to signage, packaging and point of sale material; We’re even designing a couple of 2019 Calendars right now to keep things interesting!

We pride ourselves on offering a cost effective solution for businesses and for those disorganised folks out there that haven’t been started thinking about Christmas yet – never fear – there’s still plenty of time to design and deliver your new materials in time for the big kick-off!

A Month in the Life…

Well it’s been a hectic summer so far at SVC HQ with all kinds of projects kicking off and gearing up nicely…

Firstly – as you can see above, we’ve been taking advantage of the summer sunshine to help our friends at Canoe2 get the most out of the summer months. This year has been the guys’ busiest yet with visitors all over the Boathouse shop every day of the summer holidays. We’ve been hard at work keeping the guys stocked with fresh social media and email goodness, as well as planning for their big charity event with Spurgeons later in the summer as well.

Next, we’ve been hard at work with our friends at SpaceVac supporting the launch of a whole range of new distributors around the world as they continue their quest for global domination. This month we’ve been working on a range of marketing materials to support these companies in countries like Brazil, Slovakia, Lithuania and Austria in this month alone.

Meanwhile, as we start working on a number of retail and merchandising projects in the run up to Ch******s (which we still can’t bring ourselve. In addition we’ve also been hard at work finishing up some new projects with the guys at the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum as they gear up for the release of the new SEATS guidance later this month, helping to standardise quality and safety levels among temporary drivers.

It’s a really interesting project working a whole range of partners to create a range of engaging online and offline materials to support the rollout of the campaign across Northants – and hopefully further afield in the future.

All told between all of the above and criss-crossing the county recording content for the Nene Valley Festival Podcast, (the fifth episode of which just went live!) its been an absolutely crazy few weeks!

Keep up to date with everything we are up to by connecting with on social media (We live at @soverycreative everywhere!) or get in touch to see how we can do something very creative for you!

Book Design: SEATS

A sneak peek of a project we’ve been working on for a number of months here in Northamptonshire – a book design project for the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum.

The aim of this project is to bring to life the work that the forum have been doing of late, developing a standardised code of safety and conduct for drivers, agencies and end users within the Northants Supply Chain.

Our role in the project is to now take that work, and put together not only a web portal that houses the content and guides users through the whole process, but also to design a book that put the work across in an engaging, easy to digest format.

We’re really excited with how with the project has come together (not least seeing the first deployment for the first time of the forums new modular logo that we recently designed for them!) and we will share more as the project launches publicly for the first time later this week at the next Northants Logistics Forum.

For now though – to talk to us about your own requirements for design, print, production or anything else creative – reach out and talk to us today!
