Print and public relations services
We provide print and public relations services – from initial concept, through design and finally to print. We use a combination of in-house design skills and where appropriate, partner with specialist designers to realise your brief and convey your message. Where it’s financially viable, we make a point of using local printers to support North Devon’s business community.
Fancy Something Sweet, a local company run by Chocolatier Anneli Talbot-Imber, was expanding its business to include a presence on the High Street. Fancy Something Sweet expanded by opening a local Bideford-based shop. We were asked to produce all the promotional material in the run up to the opening of its shop; design and manage the production of the signage; and to contact the local media to create awareness of the opening.
We developed and executed a local social media campaign which generated a huge amount of interest in the area. We were also very lucky that the reigning Mayor of Bideford at the time, Dermot McGeough, kindly gave up his time to open the shop. This led to an article about the opening in the local press.
Having run our own food business for ten years, we produced many flyers and leaflets for use in our marketing campaigns, all within a very limited budget. Food promotion relies heavily on good photography and imagery. Here is an example of one of the posters we produced for the food business.
Promoting ten years of business in Bideford
In April 2015 we celebrated ten years of running our own business. We marked the occasion with an on line competition and a media campaign. We produced the following graphic to help promote the competition. This gained us a lot of local and industry media coverage and was very successful in raising awareness within our target audience.
Print and public relations for the community
At Droppa & Droppa we like to give a little back to our community and so for a few years we volunteered at Westward Ho! Youth Theatre. This entailed not only helping backstage during actual shows, but also organising the publicity for the group. We created posters, produced programmes and liaised with the local media to raise awareness of this important community resource. As with any community work, the challenge is always to produce something that is both cost effective and provides maximum impact.
As well as being responsible for the publicity, we also managed the group’s website, which incorporated an Events Management Booking System. We recently co-ordinated a re-brand, which included: changing the logo; re-vamping the website and providing a cohesive message across all media.
