The Counting House logo

Situated within the heart of Sea View Street, Cleethorpes, The Counting House is a venue to relax, enjoy a drink and share some good food.

The Creative Agency was first approached by The Counting House for assistance with their design requirements, with a view to creating advertising campaigns for their hectic schedule of events.

Due to the extensive amount of campaigns, it's imperative that our design work remains fresh - so we are always experimenting and evolving with the initial design style.

As our partnership has grown, The Creative Agency continues to work closely with The Counting House on a multitude of projects - creating marketing collateral assets such as menus, banners and point-of-sale advertisements for both online and offline media.

Whether you are just starting your night, or finishing up for the evening, we wouldn't recommend visiting anywhere else in Cleethorpes for cocktails, food and a little boogie.

All Steels Trading

Project.

All Steels Trading

One of Europe’s fastest growing steel trading companies with strong alliances to mills around the globe.

Services included:
- Brand Development
- Design for Print
- Photography and Art Direction

The Creative Agency have had a long established relationship with All Steels Trading Ltd, who are one of Europe’s fastest growing steel trading companies. The Creative Agency was first commissioned to create the new corporate identity for All Steels Trading over a decade ago, and the relationship grew from there.

Throughout our partnership, we regularly update the ever changing All Steels Trading brochure and design bespoke marketing materials for the company to use throughout the year. The range of marketing materials produced are quite varied and include anything from general advertisements to a bespoke Christmas advent calendar. In addition, we also fully customise the company exhibition stands that appear all around the globe!

As the company grew to become an internationally recognised brand, it was decided that the current brand identity was in need of a freshen up to bring it in line with a more modern design style. The Creative Agency were commissioned again to re-brand the business which included a complete redesign of all marketing literature to date.

“We have enjoyed a very harmonious business relationship with The Creative Agency for numerous years now. It remains an absolute pleasure to routinely collaborate with such an outstanding team of designers who are always keen to not only understand our specific design requirements but to also create visually striking and eclectic branded artwork, which is totally fit for purpose. The Creative Agency are highly professional in their approach, completely trustworthy and we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone wishing to effectively market their business through the use of either design for print or design online.”

Armadillo Tools specialise in providing innovative, cutting edge, precision tooling and machinery to consumers all over the UK. Armadillo Tools got in contact with The Creative Agency with a view to finding an agency to assist with their email marketing. Upon our initial consultation, The Creative Agency looked a little deeper and quickly identified areas which would help improve their position in a highly competitive marketplace.

Armadillo Tools are a part of Vertex Industries Limited, who are a family owned business, which was a partnership from the early 1990’s and traded as Vertex Group UK, until becoming incorporated in 2014. Vertex Industries Limited is the parent company of three separate businesses. The challenge was to bring these brands together so that they were instantly recognisable as being part of one organisation. The Creative Agency got to work on this and made small tweaks to the affiliated company logos, creating a consistency with typography and colour palettes.

Once a relationship had been established, Armadillo Tools decided it was time to refresh their website to be more in line with their brand. The previous website was clunky and built in Magento, which is not the most user friendly. Armadillo Tools required a site which they could easily manage internally, due to the ever changing products. The Creative Agency decided that a WooCommerce store would be the best fit for Armadillo Tools and produced a fully operational e-commerce store which contains over 600 products and variables.

To further their position in the market place, Armadillo Tools commissioned The Creative Agency to continue with their ongoing email marketing, which includes two separate newsletters: Joinery E-Trader and Cutting Edge Offers and Information. A new brand was put together for Joinery E-Trader (JET) utilising the same design style as the brand and a bi-weekly newsletter is sent to joiners all over the UK, displaying used tooling and machinery for sale.

As the partnership has grown, The Creative Agency have continued to work with Armadillo Tools on various projects including marketing literature, signage and advertising.

“I’d just like to compliment you and your team, you’ve blown us away with the presentation Richard and Neil brought to us.

Very Impressive and we look forward to having you working with us.”

Rapid Accommodation Logo

We were approached by Rapid initially to design a brochure for their accommodation sales team. Little did we know at the time that this would lead to a total re-brand launch for both there national and international business for both accommodation and travel businesses.

Our relationship with Rapid was an instant success from our initial meetings. They required a design agency that could go the extra mile and we did everything we could to give them all the miles they needed. From the outset we got a feeling this company was going to grow quickly, they had an abundance of energy and enthusiasm to be the best in there market place and we were fortunate enough to tag along with some great ideas.

The whole process started with looking at where they needed to be in their market place and after redefining the company’s core values, we needed to create the tools to get them there. The Travel Assistant, who is a prominent part of Rapid’s new brand and all messaging, was born out of a creative team meeting with Rapid and The Creative Agency, involving all staff and directors.

This flexible assistant is simply shown as exactly that, a unisexual person who assists with everything and is there to help, which encompasses everything the Rapid brand stands for.

We were also tasked to create the Rapid brand so it would stand the test of time, not just nationally, but internationally too with Rapid Business Travel. Once the brand was approved, we then through collaboration with Rapid, came up with a strapline and wrote their mission statement. To date, we still continue to work with Rapid on a quarterly basis scheduling and writing all there social media content as well as producing brochures and exhibition displays.

Marie is a qualified Social Worker and Cognitive Behavioural therapist (CBT) and her work has been mainly with children and adolescents. Marie is registered with Social Work England as well as an accredited CBT therapist with BABCP (British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies).

Marie kindly approached The Creative Agency with the aim goal to delicately handle and manage the creation of a new identity and website for her new venture going it alone as a specialist therapist.

The Creative Agency had to gain a very good understanding of the type of therapy that Marie offered before going to work on her new identity, which took much valid research into the market place and some soul searching too with reference to how the new website would be received.

It was an honour to be entrusted with such an important responsibly to get the sensitive message across to the general public so far as the image that Marie needed to portray.

We can sit back with pride now as the results have been really successful in creating a new brand for Marie and we are pleased to announce her new business is growing rapidly.

"I can’t thank The Creative Agency enough.

I approached them not knowing the first thing about creating an identity and also quite unknowledgeable about starting a new business. The process and information supplied was interesting and educating - they really did assist me every step of the way.

The Creative Agency have not just helped me, they have given me confidence to take my business to the next level. I would highly recommend this team as they add a great fun element, when working with them."

CSB Groundworks Logo

CSB Groundworks have established reputation for providing exceptionally high standards of workmanship at extremely competitive rates, serving the area of Lincolnshire. With their existing brand and website looking tired and dated, The Creative Agency were commissioned to undertake a complete rebrand which would bring them in to the 21st Century. A range of concepts were presented for the brand identity, using an orange and grey colour palette which reflected the industry theme. The final chosen concept was tweaked to bring the lettering together, which is representational of an excavator frame. The brand was then rolled out on to a new website, vehicle signage and marketing materials.

The new website utilises an orange and grey colour palette combined with large imagery which showcases recent portfolios. CSB Groundworks expressed that the website had to be easy to navigate around and clearly highlight the services on offer. The final design is completely responsive meaning that it displays beautifully across all platforms.

We are more than thrilled with the whole experience the website is outstanding, the logo is just what we had visioned and more. We could not recommend this company enough! Absolutely fantastic!”

Oak Ridge Group

Oak Ridge Group

Two luxury, family-run hotels situated across the area of Lincolnshire.

Services included:

OakRidgeGroupLogo

The Oak Ridge Group currently have two hotels in its portfolio, covering North Lincolnshire and the Lincolnshire Wolds. The Ashbourne Hotel, set in the pretty village of North Killingholme, and The Brackenborough, placed on the outskirts of Georgian market town, Louth. Both properties embrace stylish boutique-hotel living, yet scratch the surface, and you’ll find this backed up with freshly prepared, quality food and friendly, attentive staff.

We were approached by The Oak Ridge Group to pitch for all of their design, artwork and marketing requirements against many other agencies.

Further to extensive research and many late nights in our studio, the presentation day had arrived. We were lucky enough to sail through the pitching process and take on all of their requirements to include all marketing materials and social media activities.

It’s a challenge to continuously come up with fresh ideas that are going to exceed and bat out the competitors in this field, but it’s a challenge we thrive on as a team enjoy every day.

“We recently hired The Creative Agency to design all of our print marketing material. From the very outset, we have found the incredibly talented team to be both professional and reliable, with the ability to meet promised deadlines and also be absolutely on point with their work. They totally take on board our initial brief, and somehow manage to give back a little bit more than expected, so much so that our design briefs are becoming less detailed as we just know that they are totally in tune with what we want. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to any company looking for work of the highest quality, and a team that can be counted on to deliver exactly when they say they will. We are currently in the process of expanding their role with us, which really says it all, doesn’t it? Our only regret is that we didn’t do this sooner.”

In the near 2.5 years, I have dealt with The Creative Agency, I have always been impressed with their commitment to customer service, client satisfaction and speed of response to requests.

Richard and the team have on more than one occasion, worked late in the evening if required to meet marketing deadlines in preparation for our exhibitions, press releases and campaign launches. On each occasion producing excellent work.

Richard is very collaborative in his approach and receptive to our ideas that are quickly enhanced and adapted with his own thoughts to work well with our brand, website & social media platforms all of which were developed with and are managed by Creative.

If you are looking for a design & marketing agency that will work with you to develop your vision and marketing strategy, I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending The Creative Agency.
