Stuff we do
Communications | Design & Documents | Photography | Marketing
The impression we make, the message we send out, the reaction we engender is all down to our communication ability. In business you need to direct and control your communication precisely and for this you need to hone your skills.
There are many types of document but one thing they have in common is a purpose; to impart information to an audience. We believe that this purpose is of paramount importance and that the design process is to enhance that intent.
Carefully selected photos can focus interest that draws your audience in, and strong visual imagery can help commit words to memory, cementing your message. So is it true to say a picture paints a thousand words? Well it can be, but be careful they’re the right ones.
Marketing is the process by which you create the right environment for sales to happen. From the impact of your communication to the slickness of your despatch, good marketing underpins every part of your organisation.
How we do stuff
Everything we do is about engaging your audience
A forthright discussion of your aims and requirements and an honest appraisal of resources lay the foundations; then the imagination can start.
Either working in-house, or as an off-site resource, between us we’ll get the job done.
For individual marketing projects or on-going scheduled activity, contact us to talk about your marketing communication requirements.
Words written, documents produced, projects arranged, job done.
Words, designs, images; they are all about communication
Design & Documents
The message is key; good design will support the message, but never upstage it
Photographs support the words & designs, and help commit the message to memory
The 'magic mix', the right balance adds that special something to make your business memorable
Who does what stuff
Two of us do most of the stuff, with help from others when we need it

Stuff we've been up to recently
Bye bye bitmap, hello vector This post needs very little introduction. It’s a quick experiment to see how well the scalable vector graphic (SVG) graphic format works online. To try out SVG, I decided to be ambitious and uploaded a pretty complex piece I’ve just created as part of an advanced Adobe Illustrator course, Illustrator CC2017[…]
Technical Illustration – Where it all Began Not quite the first, but one of the first big jobs I ever did designing on computer was technical illustration. I’d learned what I was doing with lots of little ad hock jobs but my first sizable contract of 18 months was as a technical illustrator. Through a[…]
Photography – Art of Glass We recently had the opportunity to photograph a small selection of glass artworks by Linda Boy. Glass is one of the most challenging subjects in photography. When it comes to trying to show the full range of colours – even those which change depending on how the light hits them[…]
Interior Photography for Interior Reflections Having successfully completed a large three-property interior photography photo-shoot for Pavilion Broadway in January 2015, I was delighted to hear from my designer contact, Elspeth Rose again.

Talking Heads Videos Client testimonial videos are a tremendous marketing asset When we say “talking heads videos”, we are taking about corporate PR video, not the excellent band! Our client, Sustainable Homes is very switched on when it comes to putting their best foot forward on-line. They run the SHIFT index which aims to help social[…]
An interior design photo-shoot in the Cotswolds In January this year we were invited to produce interior photography of two houses in the picturesque Cotswolds. The job had been on the back-burner for a few months as minor finishing touches had been delayed. One of the challenges of a winter interior photography shoot is that the sun[…]
