Your perfect design partner, Puur in Colchester Essex

You’ve probably seen a number of branding company’s websites, looked at what design services are on offer from a possible design partner and thought they all sounded great. On paper Colchester’s Puur will be offering much the same basic services.

It’s our creativity, design awards, business focused solutions and can do attitude elevate us above others.

The difference we have is that our experience is both lengthy (almost 30 years in the branding and graphic design arena) and also international

However, the real difference we have is that our experience is both lengthy (30 years in the branding and graphic design arena) and also international (working on projects for household names such as BP and P&G on a global basis). Because of this, our service is much more than just logo design.

We basically take the knowledge we’ve gained over this time (we’ve picked up a few useful bits of knowledge over the years) and our experience working as the design partner to some amazing organisations and mould it to your needs. Bringing our understanding of big brand practices to our work, to help our clients thrive.

design partner colchester - we are the life preserve
brand designer - Some of the identities we've created in the past - not just logos: Puur

We specialise in the development of brand identities (both visual and verbal) for small to medium sized businesses and organisations. From the start-up one man band that wants great design to help them stand out from their peers to the larger organisations that want to move into new markets. This is more than just logo design, it’s about full ‘look and feel’ development. For simplicity we’ve split our offer into:

Brand creation – working together with fledgling organisations to build a foundation for the future, creating the design focused building blocks that will propel them forward and get them noticed for the right reasons.

Brand development – taking an existing brand identity or logo design, assessing it’s strengths and weaknesses and helping it stay relevant, fulfilling its full brand potential. This isn’t reinventing, this is about amending and polishing.

Brand refresh – redeveloping an existing brand either organically or in a completely new direction. This is to help brands that don’t connect with their audience any longer gain new life and new vigour.

Some previously designed packaging, truly is the brand in the hand: Puur

Branded packaging is our passion. Delivering on shelf ‘appeal’, the ‘brand in the hand’ for our clients is what we work hard to achieve. Ensuring that through great design, your product is seen, understood and desired in the micro second of on-shelf recognition is something that excites us.

Our design and branding services stretch from helping to breath new life into an established product to delivering packaging solutions for items never seen before (NPD – New Product Development). For each and every creative project we deliver packaging that is relevant, desirable and differentiated.

Previously developed branded literature, an important part to any identity: Puur

Company literature can be anything from a leaflet to a suite of brochures. When it comes to literature and brochure design we are always focused on the audience and what your desired message is. But what we also have in mind is what you want the response to be.

We design brochures to fulfil real business needs, whilst delivering the brand at its best. Elegance twinned with functionality is what we strive for.

We create brand focused advertising that works for you: Puur

Brand and product advertising are big part of any company’s marketing strategy. As part of our brand identity work we offer the development of ownable, relevant and most importantly, effective advertising campaigns.

Working with our clients to understand the needs of their business is an important part of what we do. The campaigns we develop are brand driven, but focus on delivering against the specific business need. Our ads don’t just look great, they are engaging as well. Headlines and imagery work together to ensure that the overall message is relevant and memorable.

Examples of branded environemnts to suit your budget: Puur

Forward thinking organisations understand the importance of workspaces, that they are in fact a business tool. An office environment reflects and reinforces a ‘brands’ core values.

This in term can effect how the staff, suppliers and customers interact with the brand and each other. With this in mind, creating an environmental experience with ‘brand’ at its heart (whether this is office spaces, signage or meeting rooms), is an incredible challenge.

It’s something we relish as it has helped our clients differentiate themselves from their peers and made their workspaces a more productive environment. As well as brand environments we also deliver branded exhibitions and stands. This is one way to deliver cut through in a B2B or B2C exhibition environment.

General graphics can be anything from merchandising to a calendar. It is anything that can be developed graphically (though not necessarily in 2d). We love design and will take most things on, just so we can help our clients shine.

We also deliver websites and digital solutions as part of a broader branding project. Whether that is assistance in creating YouTube videos, a video ident or a full blown website, we can help with it all.

Today, it is important that every one of brand’s touchpoints delivers a constistent vision. This is how we can help your brand thrive in the digital world.

COVID Update (Oct 2021)

We’re out of lockdown now, and we’re most definitely still working! Hopefully we are seeing an end to the worst of this. We’re working partly at our Colchester based office again now, we can (as we’ve been doing) deliver all the work we usually do.

Obviously if you have any branding related projects we'd love to chat (over Zoom). In the meantime stay safe.
