Quinns had an existing web presence in the form of a web page provided by Yell and a basic brand identity when we first started working with them. They needed their brand design to be rebuilt and for their web presence to be completely updated. They required a strong and high impact identity to form the basis of all print and digital media to better reflect their status in the mechanical and electrical contracting industry and their work with the Ministry of Defence. 

As with many businesses, their clients were referring to them by the short form of their company name, simply ‘Quinns’. So this was to form the basics for their new brand identity. They manage a fleet of vehicles which their engineers use to visit clients so the brand would need to work above all on their vans and have a fast and strong impact on viewers. Bold confident colours were chosen with a simple logo mark utilising the ‘Q’ of their name.

A new website quickly followed with a sitemap comparable to their closest competitors using professional SEO principles to help their visibility with specific search terms via Google.

We’re continuing to manage their site, tweaking the SEO on a regular basis. Along with updating company stationery and business cards for their team.

Testimonials

An. X has done great work for our business. We previously had no online presence at all and we felt it was time to move our business into the 21st century. With their help, we now have a great website that we are really proud of. We have a stylish new logo that we have put on everything we could think of! We have even started to utilise our Facebook page better by using it to recruit new staff and keep our customers informed of what’s going on in our business. An.X has been an invaluable resource for us during our rebranding, giving us so much help with website content and using social media. Can’t thank them enough.

When social developer Our Enterprise asked us to help create a brand for their veterans’ training and resettlement program we jumped at the chance. The program offers service-leavers and veterans the personalised support they need to kick-start the next chapter in their life and maximise their chances of a good transition from the services, whilst giving UK companies and communities the platform to access and benefit from this exceptionally hardworking and focused talent pool.

We initiated primary research followed by a series of workshops and interviews with key individuals and partner organisations. This allowed us to delve deep into the brand’s purpose and mission and Entrain Space was born.

This brand work had a number of deliverables including a full brand manual, marketing strategy, website and graphic design work on various pieces of marketing collateral. We’re also consulting on interior design, café fixtures and fittings, murals, building signage and lighting.

The first Entrain Space in Wilton, Salisbury was opened by Sophie, Countess of Wessex, in October 2019 and received a visit from Prime Minister Boris Johnson shortly thereafter. It has garnered strong support from within the MOD and branches of the military service. We continue to work on this exciting project.

We were approached by the Project Director, Julian Glyn-Owen and Creator, Giles Rayner, to help promote this fabulous water sculpture. 

Although an initial visual identity had been created early in the project’s development, primarily for the internal team, we were tasked with creating a new one to become its public face going forwards. In addition, an accompanying marketing strategy was needed. From there we moved on to designing various marketing collateral pieces, a website and video content for it.

The brief had dual goals of promoting the existence of the sculpture itself as well as reinforcing the team’s capacity to deliver other such large scale public installations.

We developed the brand position, target audience profiles and set various targets around the required goal. The new website, video and PR Agency we brought on were tasked with delivering on this. The PR campaign generated positive press coverage from local, national and international media. Coverage was achieved in Oman and neighbouring Arab territories, as well as regional print and radio and Country Life in the UK.

Website Design for Pet Shop

Website Design for Pet Shop

Amesbury Pets is a recently opened pet shop in Amesbury near Salisbury. It’s a local retail business created by service leaver, Graham, who needed a logo and e-commerce website to support his new business.

This was a fun project to help our client with. Many new retail businesses don’t consider their logo design deeply enough which is natural given the quantity of work needed to launch a new retailer. The downside is they can end up with a poorly implemented design that perhaps works only on their storefront as signage but is lacking in all other areas it’s needed. Thankfully, Graham had the foresight to consider every aspect of this launch, including the logo design and e-commerce website.

The visual identity for Amesbury Pets needed to reflect Graham’s goal of providing friendly service supplying a full range of natural pet food  for a variety of different animals. So, a palette using natural tones was chosen with a hand drawn logo style accented by further hand written-style flourishes on the website.

Graham’s business launch was a resounding success and he’s already found himself a loyal customer base. We continue to work with him to audit and improve the site’s SEO to help him attract new customers. This brief was part of website design and build special offer, which is perfect for start ups, sole traders and small companies.

As this brief involved the creation of a brand identity for what is, essentially, a personal brand we took the route of designing a graphic version of Andrew’s signature.

The new site needed careful thought around page structure to ensure a clean uniformity to its design and layout whilst allowing for a diverse range of book titles to be accessed easily. The site was finished with an ochre and grey palette, which perfectly complemented the maturity of Andrew’s work.

Andrew’s new site is already drawing praise from fellow academics and writers. We continue to monitor and audit the SEO work we completed and adjust content as necessary. This project was undertaken as part of our special website design and build offer, which is perfect for small companies and sole traders.

This Salisbury-based medical services business approached An.X to help create a professional brand, create a new logo and then incorporate the work into a short form brand manual. We implemented their new professional design across a range of media, including a website, business stationery and exhibition materials.

Initially we carried out a marketing audit of the business. These audits usually involve a series of meetings interviewing key personnel and clients, collating all promotional materials and reviewing their content before submitting a report. After a thorough research phase, we have an understanding of the service delivery and customer needs. We then focus on creating a logo and a colour palette to combine, in this case, a feeling of technology and data management in the medical sphere.

Once the brand design was established, we applied it primarily to the website, and carried out a root and stem review of the information flow and user experience. Designs for stationery, exhibition displays, pop-up displays and flyers followed soon afterwards.

Testimonials

An.X Agency has transformed our business by creating us a really strong brand to work from. This has given us a fantastic platform to base our advertising and marketing strategies on. Subsequently, our business has grown considerably and is going from strength to strength. The quality and consistency of their work across our website, business cards, fliers and exhibition stands has been exceptional. I’d highly recommend them to everyone.
