As one of the longest established businesses in the region, Fenn Wright can trace its roots in Essex and Suffolk back to 1768. Its role as land agents gradually evolved, ultimately becoming the modern-day chartered surveyor and estate agency business it is today.

The brief

The brief was simple; to create a symbol or graphic that could be used across all print and digital material to mark the 250th celebration year and beyond. Also to create an something that could be used across all media to help illustrate this unique landmark date.

What we did

The first thing was to research what was going on back in 1768, find out land mark occasions along the time line. The more we looked the more we saw that the last 250 years have been quite a tumultuous time. It’s seen the creation of the USA, global wars and inventions that have changed the world.

We wanted to show how things have changed, yet how Fenn Wright (and the places they exist) have been constant, how they’ve continued to deliver a consistent service all this time. The seal device was a modern take on the traditional seal, but with the completely hand drawn 250 logotype. It is both elegant and simple.

The challenge of how to show that time goes on, but Fenn Wright is consistent was achieved through the commissioning of a set of photographs to match historic images that we had selected from archives. These images were either from where Fenn Wright is based or the areas it covered.

The final, retouched images were both interesting and elegant. A timeless reminder of a truly history event. Initially these have been delivered via the web and through a set of limited addition postcards. Each card’s reverse holds a short, but interesting story. Each one different, reflecting the tailored nature of Fenn Wrights and its service.

COVID Update (October 2020)

Whilst the world is still in the grips of this terrible virus and Essex is a tier two area, Puur is still working. Schools are still back and lockdowns are still getting more restrictive again, so we’re still home working. However, we can and have been doing 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.
