Closed due to a fire and power cut!

On Monday morning we shut our Bury store due to a fire on Bolton Street, which cut our electrical supply.  After sitting in the dark for over an hour Adam kindly sent me home with some work to do. Before I left I took some photos on my phone. Not your usual start to the day!

Christmas cards are a great way to say thanks!

Did you know, in a poll taken back in 2008 two thirds of people said they’d rather not receive an electronic emailed “e-card” compared to a traditional printed one as they thought they were impersonal. Traditional printed Christmas cards show that you care and are a great way to say thank you for business passed this year.

Below is a small range from our Christmas sample pack, which also includes Calendars, Mobile Phone Holders and more…

Eco Explore Case Study

Background

Eco-explore is a provider of high quality guided tours of the wildlife and ecosystems of south Wales. The company offers unique opportunities to take part in hands on ecological research and encounter wildlife in a variety of beautiful locations.  The company caters for individuals, schools and corporate groups keen to explore the wide variety of eco-systems the southern Wales region supports, and find out more about the challenges they face.  Eco-explore was launched in July 2010 by Dr Alex Pollard, who came to Fluid Creative with a brief for a full company brand, website and marketing collateral to ensure it reached its target market with exactly the right messages.

The Fluid Creative Solution

Adam Hindle, a Fluid Creative director, says: “eco-explore needed a brand that communicated creatively its innovative approach to helping people engage with the natural world. Our response was a logo and branding that encapsulated this perfectly, fusing green, environmental themes with the modern.

“We translated the brand into a message perfect website (www.eco-explore.co.uk), that’s bright, user friendly and enjoyable to visit. The site allows Alex and her team to easily manage and update the tour page, ensuring bookings are consistently high.

“Finally, we continued this fresh approach with the marketing collateral, with a cleverly designed brochure, letterheads and business cards, which allow eco-explore to reinforce its brand with clients at every stage of the business journey.”

The Client’s Verdict

Alex says: “eco-explore is going from strength-to-strength and a large part of our success has been having the tools to grow the business – an excellent website and brand that work hard for the company.

“Fluid Creative’s approach met our needs precisely and every element was bang on message, ensuring our clients are assured of the quality of our tours. Our experience of Fluid Creative was purely positive; they understood what we wanted to achieve and our business objectives. I can’t speak highly enough of the service provided by Adam and his team. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations, in fact I already have.”

Breeze Accounting Logo & Stationery

Breeze Accounting was a very exciting job for me, which gave me the opportunity to test my typography skills. The concept behind the logo was that of making accounting a breeze. The stationery followed on from this with a unique look and style, which was what was needed for this forward thinking company.

Using cut-outs to boost sales!

If you’ve ever needed something a bit different than the usual A5 Leaflet to grab attention and boost sales, then cut-outs may be for you. Cut-outs offer you the opportunity to use the media in a variety of ways to emphasise your message. If you’re a painter then a simple cut-out flyer in the shape of a paint bucket will quickly tell your perspective customers who you are and what you do. Here are some of the latest cut-outs we’ve done for our clients.

Higher Access Bespoke Brochure

Higher Access are nationwide suppliers of Spider Lifts and specialist hire for customers working at height. Their brief was to update their existing stationery and create a sales brochure that would compete against their biggest rivals.

The result was a bespoke metallic brochure printed with custom illustrations, which received great appraisal from new customers and existing customers alike.

Decor Fusion Branding

Decor:Fusion provides quality interior solutions across the UK commercial market. Formerly known as MNB Furniture, following recent growth through a series of strategic acquisitions and mergers, Decor:Fusion came to us with the vision of creating a new brand.

Following the initial meeting, Tom took to work in creating a new identity for the company, which would uniquely offer four specialist services under one identity. The result was a clean, memorable logo, which followed through seamlessly to a new website design, business stationery and a shiny spot UV presentation folder.

Anyone for Tex Mex?

Hooties Tex Mex Bar & Grill was Jason’s favourite job of the week. The brief was to produce a Menu and Promotional Flyer to celebrate the opening of the new Tex Mex Bar and Grill based in Colne. The result was a very tasty looking menu!

Ramsbottom Metalwork

This weeks set of portfolio shots includes the design of a new Logo and Visual Identity for Ramsbottom Metalwork. The brief was to create a simple, memorable icon, which could be used on Vehicle Livery, Clothing, Business Stationery and a Promotional Flyer.
