We were musing the other day here in the office. Over a coffee. Is there any room for irreverence, quirkiness, even creativity in company communications.
We are excited to be involved with The Pheasant Inn situated in Neenton, Shropshire. At face value “it is just a pub” but close up.
Commercial Carpet Solutions know about quality. Anyone that fits flooring for global fashion brands, historic national buildings, West End theatres and Premier League footballers has to be at the top of their game. So it was a bit of a coup to land the job of rewriting their entire website, from the very first ‘Hello’ to every single one of their impressive case studies. Commercial Carpet Solutions are already passing our business card on to their trusted contacts – you might say they are happy to ‘pile’ even more work our way!
Ascensio are a niche development consultancy. Think Ascensio, think Bang & Olufsen, think BMW, think Mr & Mrs Smith. When it was time to align their corporate ‘look-and-feel’ to be more ‘like who we are’ and the quality of their development solutions, they trusted us to help. Often, simple works a treat. Understated and cool, a simple yet modern logo – with a defining ‘a’ as a touch point – now proudly adorns all of their collateral. When we asked “Do you like it?” they replied “We really like you ‘get’ us. MANY, MANY, THANKS!” We think that means it’s okay…
Every year, the Equity Partners at Talbots invite 140 staff to listen to their business plans for the year. Since 2012 they have trusted themybigtoecompany to help them deliver the event – engagingly, and with impact. This year it was held at Spring Grove House, West Midlands Safari Park. Our role involved full creative input, video and slideshow production as well as designing the post-event questionnaire. Afterwards, 87% of staff said they felt Positive or Very Positive about the future of the firm meaning the event achieved its aims.
K&B UK is part of the worldwide Kohler group of companies. In January each year, the Director team deliver a Roadshow, a high impact event aimed at engaging the UK team with the challenges facing the business. This year, themybigtoecompany provided full creative input, project management, script writing and slideshow production for the event held at Cheltenham Racecourse. Our Before-and-After survey showed that staff were more excited about the future of the company and had more confidence in the leadership team as a consequence.
Mackenzie Jones are Marketing recruitment specialists and are part of The Jones Group. Invited to write their website copy, it was important that themybigtoecompany captured their personality as well as reflecting their ethos and brand values. We have since been asked to create and write their e-newsletter, redesign their corporate brochure and refresh all their online collateral, making sure it is on brand and engaging. Their newsletter enjoyed a 29% ‘open rate’ whilst their social media following has increased by over 400% – and counting.
QualitySolicitors is the UK’s number one national legal service with over 400 locations nationwide. In March 2012, they aired their first TV advert, inspired by Saatchi, and they asked themybigtoecompany to support the launch. We were responsible for writing over 300 pages of website copy; creating a front-cover teaser ‘ad’ and advertorial for the Law Society Gazette magazine and various other communiques for 200 Partner firms to use with customers. Were they happy? “Feedback has been really positive. Thank you, it’s looking and reading great.”
When Kohler UK chose to migrate a well-established brand in to their own, themybigtoecompany were asked to create a positive message for them to use with their retail showroom customers. 2013 The Year of Opportunity communicated, simply and clearly, the shared goals both had, together with the marketing plans Kohler had for the year. By building the message around the ’2′, ’0′, ’1′ and ’3′, it made the message memorable. Did it work? “The presentation is working really well and the message is definitely getting through. Thanks again for all your help with this.”
TDG is one of Europe’s leading supply chain management companies. When they needed a creative solution on how to communicate effectively with their drivers, they asked themybigtoecompany to help. We created a simple booklet to fit inside the trouser pocket of each driver. Why? Because survey feedback from employees was that TDG ‘comms’ was text-book dry, uninspiring and therefore was less likely to be read. Our simple fold-out solution, inspired by The Mr Men series of children’s books, delivered the required result. Communication really is child’s play.
