Since we were established two decades ago we have worked with an array of museums, galleries and historical sites throughout the UK. We offer you a safe pair of hands, using our knowledge and dedicated service to support you from the first conversation, to the finished design, working in a way that suits your capabilities, time constraints and budget.
Often we work with clients who lack confidence in the messages they are trying to convey to their visitors. We help guide you through the creative process to ensure we maximise your customer engagement. Thought-provoking, inspirational ideas increase customer spend, dwell-time and encourage repeat visits and referrals.
A recent challenge working with Sudbury Hall and The National Trust Museum of Childhood is a great example, where we were supplied with an illustration that was a simple black and white image that they liked. We liked it too and our design team developed the image to make it more child-friendly. Using a lino-cut technique to bring the illustrations to life delivered a strong and engaging A5 book and this has become one of our most cherished samples, helping us to showcase a new style.
With a strong discipline and respect for client’s often limited budgets, we are proud to agree a budget with a client and guarantee a quality product, delivered on time. Tight deadlines, very specific briefs and clients who require daily support and guidance through the process are very welcome.
We are able to support museums and heritage sites during this difficult time by providing digital downloads that can easily be adapted and applied to client websites and social media channels. Our team will adapt to flexible situations and provide project designs in various digital files and formats.
