Nelson's Gin Distillery & Gin School (Branding, Digital, Exhibition Graphics, Packaging, Photography, Print)
For the last ten years, ego has worked only for perfectionists. Companies, corporates and individual producers and suppliers who all have a vision and a standard of excellence from which they never deviate. So when Nelson’s Gin needed a spirited product launch, our sophisticated palates – and colour palettes – were delighted to step up to the plate. Or rather, the glass. Nelson’s Gin will be appreciated by connoisseurs. Created by one man, and introduced into a market in which craft gins proliferate, Nelson’s Gin stands apart from the rest. It is also the only gin produced on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire borders, made in small batches in a highly sophisticated, 21st century version of a ‘cottage industry’. From marketing strategy to logo to labels to leaflets to product launch. A combination of creativity and cooperation, inspiration, excitement and ‘hands on’ client involvement all the way. The result? A distillation of ideas which will appeal to gin aficionados and new drinkers alike. Communication reflecting the clarity of the gin itself. And all of its freshness.

Denstone Hall (Digital, Photography, Print)
There’s no room for paltry poultry or fruitless jams at Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café. Here, in the thriving business created by the vision and passion of Rupert and Emma Evans, they’re proud to offer food as it should taste; fresh from the farm or café kitchen or brought in from local farmers and producers who share Denstone’s commitment to quality and deliciousness. Denstone is a working farm, producing beef, sausages and its own dry-cured bacon. The farm won the ‘Taste of Staffordshire Award 2014’, its sausages are officially the ‘West Midlands Tastiest Sausage’ and its kitchens produce bread, scones, cakes, biscuits and pies that set a standard others can only hope to follow. Customers flock to Denstone Farm for the best locally produced, free range meat and wild game, for the finest regional cheeses, for fresh, flavoursome fruit and veg, jams, pickles and preserves, hampers, cards, gifts and a visit to a café that’s the best for miles. A delicious challenge: Denstone Hall needed to update its website to capture and reflect its freshness, originality and the variety of its offering. Working closely with Rupert and Emma, we have delivered the goods… a website that makes relevant use of all the latest technologies, has a full CMS, is built in WordPress and is responsive across all devices, mobile phones and tablets. Mouthwatering stuff. Rupert is a trained and experienced graphic designer and he and Emma are instinctively superb at marketing their business. It was good to share insights. And now? We’re moving on to look at Denstone’s printed materials, plus designing and building a website for Twine Clothing, one of the on-site, external businesses that’s adding even more variety to the farm’s offering. Denstone has a number of on-site units available to small businesses. It’s no wonder the farm is leaping ahead like a spring lamb.

If we weren’t inspired by the power of telecommunications and ICT, it wouldn’t have been such a thrill. But we are, and it was. What was? Winning the GCI Channel Solutions business. GCI is the UK’s number one telecommunications and ICT services company. ‘They all say that’, you might say, but as the UK’s 19th fastest-growing privately-owned business with a turnover of £55 million (Investec), it’s a fact. Impressed? Yup. A little intimidated? Nope. Because we appreciate the power and potential of achieving clarity, simplicity and efficiency through technology better than the next man. Or woman, in our case. Which gave us the confidence, as well as the necessary vision, to beat off competition from some serious rivals for this terrific new business win. GCI called us two days after our initial meeting. Within three weeks we were working on their new website, with sixteen weeks to deliver. With strict brand guidelines and working alongside GCI’s own graphic designer, we designed and built eleven bespoke templates for a site which is fully responsive, with full CMS and built in Modx. And that’s just the tech spec. GCI needed a site that showcased and marketed their abilities in a way that was fresh, informative and inspiring. We delivered. Today, we manage GCI’s website. To date, we’ve produced over forty bespoke web banners to further build on their online marketing strategy. GCI is growing fast. It’s brilliant. In fact, it’s more than brilliant. GCI’s new online presence had such a positive impact on their business that they asked us to think about developing the company’s sister site, gcicom.net. Both sites are now live. And delivering the goods. To read the full case study, please visit our website: http://www.designbyego.co.uk/project/gci-channel-solutions/
