“It is The Parks Trust’s policy that care for the environment goes hand in hand with good business practice. As a parks charity we are continually looking to develop new environmentally friendly methods in everything we do.
VI has worked with The Parks Trust since 2004, our partnership has been a constant source of energy, ideas and innovation. VI was quick to embrace our ambitions, and their knowledge of environmental production, stocks and processes, resulted in a project that was granted the FSC accreditation.
All company personnel have been easy to work with and have combined initiative with an awareness of the latest trends in production to keep everyone informed and up-to-date. In addition, their continued development of our corporate look and feel delivered a project that not only looks good but made us feel good too.”
Ability to provide services on time and on budget
What a fantastic job visual identity did in designing and building my new site – it looks stunning. as a photography business, it is all about the images, vi have managed to get the quality needed to show my work off to it's best. The new 'blog' area gives me the opportunity to add news stories almost as they happen and the content management is very easy to use, even for me, and being able to upload new images easily and make changes without a fuss is a huge bonus. I have already had very positive feedback from existing clients and new enquiries and picked up the odd new project. Thanks VI.
Proof of providing a high quality professional service
VI have succeeded in delivering an exceptional interpretation of our brief. they have achieved this through outstanding focus and have recognised the vital importance of building a complete understanding of our business in order to achieve the resultant creative design solution. Their creativity has been a breath of fresh air from many other agencies we have used in the past, and clearly operate as a true team when working with a very demanding client. It has been a pleasure working with the entire team and as a result of their efforts and commitment in producing our stunning new brochure, vi are now our retained agency for all our creativity briefs. i would thoroughly recommend them.
Ability to provide a full range of deliverables from print to new media
Aegate engaged vi initially for a single project in early 2005 and on the strength of this first output, resulted in a strong relationship for the remainder of that year and continues today! Our experience with vi has been very positive, they have been quick to understand our business (which by the way isn't simple) and because of this have brought additional value to each subsequent piece of work. they approach problems and issues with enthusiasm and positivity which is extremely valued. VI go the extra mile to understand the context of the briefs they are given and have quickly become partners rather than suppliers. we look forward to our continued relationship with vi
Proven evidence of delivering results
VI’s solution for the signage has created beacons throughout the campus, as key venues which customers are now attracted to. the campus is split across three sites, with visual identities developed for each. icons have also been created to help people locate key types of facilities, with this extended through to all supporting and promotional items. Since the rebranding we have seen an increase in numbers and an improvement in perception.
proven results for business growth
after the re-branding exercise with vi in the first year, sales increased from an annual turnover of £2.3m to £3m and hit £3.5m in the next year. whilst we can’t measure the effect of the brand update and the current literature, i am convinced it will be a major factor in our continued growth.
