Big Idea Brand Marketing created the branding for my new business Amazing Futures Ltd which is a virtual marketing manager service for the child and family business sector. I was delighted with the way Lynne responded to my brief. After a Zoom call she really got to grips with my vision for the business and the kind of message I want to portray via my business branding.
What I particularly liked about Lynne was her no-nonsense approach and frankly the lack of defensiveness to feedback. I have worked in marketing for over 15 years and have often found brand consultants and designers to almost seem to take offense – or worse patronise me in their response to my feedback but there was absolutely none of that with Lynne. She took my comments on board totally, whilst explaining her recommendations. What she came up with was 100% right for my business and her sound advice really helped guide me in my approach in the run up to launching my business.
The combination of working with Lynne on the brand and Karen on the website was rock solid. Karen, like Lynne is very clear-thinking and totally positive in her response to feedback whilst still advising on the best ways of doing things. Karen has a very straightforward and patient manner about her, in particular in the way she explains things. No trying to “blind with science” or to over-complicate things. I am extremely pleased with the finished website and have received lots of compliments on the look of it.
Within one month of launching my business with this gorgeous branding and striking website, I had four enquiries and gained one new retainer client and a one off project from another business.
I am thrilled with the results of working with Big Idea Brand Marketing and HubFizz Web Design and would not hesitate to recommend them to my clients and business acquaintances.
Flowing health is my company has been in business to empower people with their health with Qigong and other practices for over 20 years. I needed a rebrand recently and a new website so I asked both Lynne Stainthorpe at Big Idea Brand Marketing and Karen Black at HubFizz to help with both projects knowing they work well together too and having seen other work they had done.
Lynne helped me clarify my brand essence, create a new logo and colours with incredible attention to detail and took a genuine interest to learn about my work and business which I greatly appreciated. Once we had agreed and prepared the logo, branding, colours, these were passed on to Karen at HubFizz for the website. Karen worked quickly, creating a lovely, fresh website, aligned with my energy work/nature and my ideas to have a clean, uncluttered website . She understood all I asked , delivered quickly and offers continuous support if I need it.
I am so grateful to Lynne and Karen and they work so well together I would recommend them both to anyone needing a rebrand, a website re-done or created from scratch etc. People love my new logo, colours and website and I have started getting more traffic and am excited about the future potential of my business/company and how to reach more people with my Qigong and energy work.
We wanted to refresh our brand, our positioning and our company logo to reflect a transition in our strategy from a purely coaching company to a business improvement consultancy with people development at it’s core.
You took us through a very rigorous and valuable branding process, you challenged and help clarify our thinking on who we wished to target – you broadened our thinking on the variety of key target customer profiles that we most wanted to attract and work with. You listened to our story, helped tease out our USPs, brought fresh thinking to our brand colour palette, font choice and gave us options for the look and feel of our brand (web, social media and presentation standard). You designed our business cards and help select the right stock images to reflect our key models and frameworks. You built our website and taught us how to update it ourselves. You were always available and responsive to our many questions in the process. You made it a fun and engaging experience, resulting in a new brand presence and marketing materials that we’re absolutely delighted with. Our materials reflect our values, what we stand for as a company and the contemporary fresh approach we seek to bring to our clients.
We have received wholly positive feedback on the look and feel of our web presence and our presentation materials – the feedback is in alignment with what we wanted to create – a fresh, professional and contemporary consulting and coaching business. Our web presence was never intended to attract new companies but to provide our ‘shop front’ for what we provide – it certainly does that! Clients like our company name (it says what we do!) but thanks to your branding we know notice they remember us more easily.
The Up Company balances deep subject matter expertise in Organisational Development, whilst making it simple and accessible to achieve great outcomes. With Karen and Lynne we found the perfect partners who do the same with brand strategy. Working with us to define our target customers, our differential and proposition – we built a brand we are proud of, that looks and feels like us! We asked for playful yet professional and the website delivers this. In our early days of launching we have received numerous compliments that validate the work and effort Karen and Lynne put in. Thank you.
