Puur

Essex

Puur is a small but perfectly formed Colchester graphic design agency. We specialise in branding solutions; the creation, development and implementation of visual and verbal identities for small and medium sized organisations. We’re focused on helping businesses and organisations thrive through intelligent brand centred solutions. Our experience in graphic design and branding spans three decades and four continents. Working with some of the largest brands in the world, we’ve taken this knowledge and intelligent ‘big brand’ thinking and brought it to Colchester. By now you’ve probably seen a number of branding company’s profiles, looked at what graphic design services are on offer and thought they all sounded great. On paper Puur will be offering much the same. Our creativity, design awards, business focused solutions and can do attitude elevate us above others. However, the real difference we have is that our experience is both lengthy (almost 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). Our service is much more than just pretty pictures. We take the knowledge we’ve gained over this time and our experience working with these large organisations and mould it to your needs. Bringing big brand practices to you for a local budget.

Describe your creative process.

Graphic design and branding is much more than pretty pictures, it’s more than just a logo, a brochure or a piece of packaging. We believe it’s is about solving business centred challenges, through intelligent solutions.

We start every design project with a meeting. It’s the one thing we always do the same. We think that this ‘getting to know each other’ part of the process is really important. We take the time to understand what makes you, your brand, your product or service different. To mine for the stuff that makes you ‘tick’. It’s the only way we can help convey that to your chosen audience.

We’re approachable and honest, tending to call a ‘spade’ a ‘spade’. Obviously delivering the graphic design you asked for, but we’ll also go that bit further. Our mission is to create design which delivers difference, whilst at the same time ensuring that the ‘relevance box’ is well and truly ticked.

When we work on a project we have results in mind, it’s a focused approach that ensures that each of your business imperatives is taken into consideration. Puur is the perfect balance between creativity and science, an approach which suits our clients well. Below, we’ve outline the our approach to developing branding solutions:

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

Every client is different, some will work with us as partners, some as suppliers. Every one has a different story and a different need, so the information we need is different. The best thing we can do before we start working is to talk a little and listen a lot.

What do you love most about your job?

This is something that has stuck with Puur, a story from our creative director:

When I went to study graphic design at art college on the first day the head of department said 'when you leave this course, you will all be designers. You will look at the world differently, you will see things others won't...'

We love what we do, because we are designers.

What inspired you to start your own business?

The inspiration was more of a need. A need to take the knowledge built up over the almost 30 years in this business to create a world class agency with a local outlook.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose to work with use because we don't just view projects as a money spinner. We love design, more specifically, we love great design. Our aim is to share our experience with the people we work with, giving freely, being proactive and ultimately delivering great, business centred design.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

We are fully set up to deliver all the same services we used to face to face over Zoom. Our workshop material has all been made available on-line.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Everything we do now is digital, from meetings over Zoom, to workshop material accessible via the website. We may be in the grips of a pandemic, but Puur is still delivering the same great design we always have.

Graphic Design FAQs

Expand all

Having fantastic visual design can really change how your audience (or customers) view you. In fact, great graphic design goes way past just making things look good. As well as a strong visual impression, brilliant graphic design enables you to amplify your efforts and get your message across in a way that will make people take notice.

Making the correct first impression is vital. With great design principles, you can create an image of your company that stays in the mind of your audiences. Add to this a consistency across all of your materials, and you will quickly be able to build trust in your brand. As well as communicating with your audience visually, you’ll be able to convey your values. Things like having a well-defined logo can be the first step towards perfect brand recognition.

It is well known that we are very visual creatures. Having the right content, designed in the right way, can really encourage your audience to learn more about your business. Being able to express ideas visually can also help to break down complex content that can be difficult to get across with words alone. This combination of benefits allows you to build a great relationship with your audience over time. This can transform into growth for your brand or increased revenue (depending on your goals).

When it comes to choosing your graphic designer, make sure you are clear as possible about what you expect from them. It’s best to write a detailed brief with background, details and timelines on your project. Giving them the relevant background information will attract the best talent possible for your brief.

Make sure to share details about your company, what you wish to achieve and any qualifications you think are necessary for the role. Explain any deadlines and things they may have to work around to make sure their understanding of the job is as comprehensive as possible.

It can also help if you understand a little bit about design yourself. Without going into too much detail, you can research what skills you would need for a particular job. After getting your head around some fundamental concepts, you can ask your candidate some questions to see how they respond.

This could be about past work they’ve done, or it could be about something you are wishing to create from scratch. This will give you a good idea of how they come up with solutions. You may even assign a trial project to complete – as long as this trial is paid for.

Talking to your potential designer on the phone is also useful. This way you can get a great understanding of how you will communicate together and whether you see eye to eye. Be sure to ask your candidate what they will need from you as well. This will help your project to go smoothly and result in the best possible outcome.

The different kinds of graphic design and their complexity will greatly affect how much you can expect to pay. Graphic designers create a huge array of content – from posters and flyers to websites and logos. Some of these graphics are used for film or TV, while others find placement within ads. Graphic designers mix both skill and creativity, while also being able to communicate with clients in an effective manner.

In a word, yes! Graphic design can be carried out remotely, so as long as you're able to discuss the brief with your expert over the phone or via video chat, then you're good to go.
