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!

Canoe2 Poster Boards

Canoe2 – Various

A couple of pieces of work we delivered this month for our friends at Canoe2.

We’ve  been working with the team at Canoe2 for a little while now, manning their blog and social media duties, as well as delivering email marketing campaigns and on occasion – some pieces of graphic design as well.

Recently the team came to us with a couple of small requests – the first being some new signage for use in their retail store at Rushden Lakes to highlight the gorgeous new Shepherds Hut the guys are now offering. (Which if you haven’t seen – is beautiful!)

Canoe2 LookbookOnce we’d completed that little project, we also delivered some new cookbooks for the team to showcase their stunning range of accommodation options for their guests. This was another really fun little project to get our teeth into, as we also got to spend a lovely day in the sunshine at the Barnwell campsite photographing all of the dwellings as well.

In the meantime – to talk to us about any requirements you might have for design or print materials – contact us today to see how we might be able to help!

Featured Project: SpaceVac USA

When we started working with SpaceVac a couple of years ago, one of the issues that they noted right off the bat, was that without a guiding hand in terms of marketing and branding worldwide, the companies distributors had fallen into a nasty habit of making it all up as they went along.

After working with the team to develop a brand identity and set of visual guidelines that the client loved, we have spent the last 12 months rolling these materials out across the companies estate of distributors worldwide.

Its a project that has presented a number of interesting challenges – between trying to copy-check brochures translated into Japanese, juggling a dozen different production deadlines at any one time and trying to strike a balance between producing materials that meet the needs of the local suppliers and partners as well as our client.

The most recent example of us delivering this kind of support has been the launch of SpaceVac in the United States – which as regular readers of the blog will know is how we ended up in Las Vegas last month.

In addition to providing hands on support and training on the ground to the team in terms of getting set up with marketing and social media activity around the product, we’ve also been hard at work working up a range of project videos, catalogues, brochures and more – including a brand new gorgeous WordPress-powered web solution to help bring the product to market in a sleek looking package. The highlight of the website for us, was a self serve area for distributors to log into and download marketing materials remotely – ensuring that all materials being used are on brand and approved at all times.

You can find some examples of the kind of work we’ve been doing below, or alternatively, get in touch to see how we might be able to assist you deal with these kinds of issues in your business!

  

Featured Project: SSC Brochure Design

We thought we would share some little sneak peeks of a brochure design we’ve just finished putting together for SpaceVac Specialist Cleaning here in Northampton.

The company, which is a sister company of another client of ours SpaceVac, was looking a bright, impactful brochure to support the launch of its new cleaning division and were really happy with the results.

By opting for this banded approach across the cover, we are planning to utilising some great print finishes like Spot UV to really give the front cover some impact while the textural possibilities on the other sections should result in a gorgeous, tactile piece of print in the end.

We’ll share some photos when they come back from the Printers!

 

Featured Project: SpaceVac

SpaceVac are a manufacturer of high-level cleaning equipment based in Northampton UK. The company have been a long time client of So Very Creative and we take great pleasure in providing a range of services from marketing consultancy and event support, to website management and social media.

Another area we have worked in for the last few years has been giving SpaceVac a consistent brand identity across its web, print and other areas. This had especially proven to be an issue where international partners and companies had been given free license to do as they pleased!

Firstly, we worked with SpaceVac to identify the core elements of their existing branding that they liked and worked to update and develop them across a wide range of medium.

Once we had established this visual identity, we got to work deploying it across the companies website, printed literature, print adverts and more. We enclose a few examples here of how this work has shaped up over the last few months.

As the company has begun to expand worldwide, we have worked collaboratively with these new partners, to provide locally specific marketing assets all in line with the core SpaceVac branding.
