Remember, remember indeed. As many of you will have noticed our new site finally went live on Thursday 5th November 2009 – nearly 2 years after we took the previous site down. It has been the busiest 2 years in our history and you’ll have to bear with us for a little while yet while the case studies are completed, we polish off a few areas of copy and finish the photography.
There are still quite a few exciting case studies to come including the 2009/2010 International adult and young learner course prospectuses for Bell International, the delivery of a 2 year brand transition for Select Education (soon to be Randstad Education – this is halfway through and we are entering the final phase to be completed in January 2011), Central Bedfordshire Council’s senior management conference and staff roadshows following the unitary status of Bedford Borough Council, Improvement East’s stakeholder event held in Harrogate and many more. We have also had the pleasure of working with Wells and Young’s recently on a number of corporate and brand projects as well as Argos – but more on all of that in a few weeks.
On another positive note we will be moving into the new year with more great news and larger premises as the company expands following a recent acquisition and a merger in Q1 2010.
Anyway back to 5th November. This year we celebrated with an integrated campaign developed with students at Bedford College consisting of a limited edition origami elephant paperweight, limited edition T-shirts, a paper based origami direct mail piece, an origami video posted on our youtube channel and promotion through the social advertising experiment iwearyourshirt.com. The elephant itself was a bespoke commission designed in partnership with international origami expert Nick Robinson who was a pleasure to work with. To find out more about this campaign click here.
Due to popular demand we will also be uploading the flat artwork this week. This will be up by Wednesday 18th November – and remember to send photos of your attempts in for a chance to win a real elephant (adopted)! Alternatively we do still have a few printed copies left so email in your details to email@example.com and we’ll mail them out while they last.
A big thanks to everyone for their support on this campaign: our dedicated staff, suppliers, paper merchants, Jason Sadler at iwearyourshirt, Kayte at Goodthings and last but by no means least Jeffrey Tribe and all the students at Bedford College. It has been a long time in the making – keep coming back for more news and views!
One last thing: Congratulations to Mark for winning the Lexon radio from October’s email newsletter – a design classic on show at the Design Museum in London, UK.
