How did we rebrand an industrial estate to increase business?

How did we rebrand an industrial estate to increase business?

, ,

We rebranded the Willow Lane Industrial Estate as part of a large cross media project and brought the brand right up-to-date.

The willow leaves were an important element of identifying the estate so we integrated those with our new concepts. We also renamed the estate to give strong sense of place and  location.

As the design concepts developed elements of the new brand could be taken as individual elements and still be identified as part of Willow Lane. The logo ‘lozenge’ can become a stand alone icon to be instantly recongnisable as part of the Willow Lane brand.

Due to the location and the varied mix of businesses and small industry on the estate we added a strapline to identify and place the estate. Willow Lane is “the place for business”.

The personal card creator for all your friends and play dates

The personal card creator for all your friends and play dates

Company Background:
Social Butterfly. A business start up we had the pleasure of working alongside as they launched their company. The concept was to create a range of unique designer ‘Mummy cards” perfect for mums to give to friends for when their children had play-dates. The cards could be personalised so they could include doctors contact details, allergies or the cards could just be used as personal business cards.

The company invited select designers and illustrators to create designs and layouts for each card. The typefaces were specially The personal card for all your friends and play dates

The Challenge:
E Commerce dynamic website
This was a big challenge and the key was to make the site user friendly and to easily flow all the way through to purchase. The card designs had specific selected typefaces which worked the best with the design. To keep design consistency the user could not change the typeface or font size so all of these had to be specially loaded onto the site. Once a card was selected and the user starts to personalise their card the details are shown instantly as they type. For the full ordering system to work we integrated RBS online secure payment for all orders.

Website Features:
Friendly fun design
Easy user experience
Memorable standout design
Personally designed cards
Easy purchase and smooth transactions

Forty Hall Banqueting

Forty Hall Banqueting

Background:
Forty Hall is a magnificent Grade 1 listed venue set in 10 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens. The banqueting suite occupies a 17th century Jacobean Coach House; an ideal venue for conferences, meetings, dinners, receptions and weddings 20 to 240 guests.

The Challenge:
The venue is run by Richmond Catering and they needed to promote their venue as bookings were down. We were called in to establish a solid design they could carry forward onto print and social platforms and above all to increase bookings and the image of the venue.

Firstly, we organised a photoshoot to make the very best of the amazing architectural features of the venue. Our design followed naturally from our stunning photos and we created a visually exciting site whilst importantly presenting all the content clearly.

Website Features:
Detailed Floor Plans
Online booking forms
Detailed food and drink packages
Location maps

The result:
HB won a four way pitch to design and develop the new website for Forty Hall Banqueting.  After our redesign they received 3 wedding bookings from the launch event alone. They continue to go from strength to strength.

Eden Walk Shopping Centre Posters

Shopping Centre Promotional Campiagn

Shopping Centre Promotional Campiagn

, ,

The Brief
The brief to promote the shopping centre to existing and new customers in researched key catchment areas.  To produce a series of posters and press adverts to promote the shopping centre. The posters ran around the centre and also on road side bus signs in the key catchment areas.

About the centre
Eden Walk Shopping Centre is located in the centre of Kingston upon Thames and amoungst other benefits, offers a large car park in a prime location.

Our Solution
The strap line’ Discover why everyone is in a flutter’ evokes excitement and stirs interest to busy, exciting shopping centre. This poster was to run in spring so the use of the butterflies added a seasonal feel. In the autumn we produced a clear and simple message’ ‘for great shopping and plentiful parking’. Part of the brief was to promote the convenient car park as well and the range of shops within the centre.  The background illustration shows shopping bags and cars flowing around in warm autumnal colours.
