Here is a testimonial letter from our client, Robb Harris, Astute Investment Planning!
The invitations for Benn’s party were just perfect. On a business note, I would like to say that I have received a number of compliments regarding my stationery. I have been told that the branding looks extremely professional, fresh, modern and striking. I would have no question in recommending your services to anyone who is seeking either a rebrand or a start up.
Need we say more?

Used correctly, colours can significantly increase your sales.
Used correctly, colours can boost your sales. It’s all to do with colour psychology and colour symbolism. If you didn’t know this – colour symbolism is to do with association (colour links to traditions and religions). Whereas colour psychology is how light reflects off objects. Both colour symbolism and colour psychology will have a significant impact on the sales of your business.
If you are setting up in business and are planning to go global, then you should think carefully about colour. Positive colours in the UK can be negative abroad and vice versa. Therefore, your colour choice is as important as your company name. For example, in China, black can mean trust and high quality. In Britain we wear black for mourning, yet we also wear black dresses for celebrating.
You should never use blue for food packaging, but blue is great for solicitors and accountants. Why? Blue is the colour of mould and poisonous berries. People on diets would do well to replace their refrigerator light bulb with a blue light bulb – the blue light will suppress your appetite.
On the positive side, blue is the colour of nature. Think of the sky and the sea, which is calming and we feel safe when the sky and sea are blue. Police (worldwide) wear dark blue uniforms. Blue is a great colour for people in authority and if you want to evoke a feeling of trust.
You may have noticed that we like the colour pink here! Pink is a great colour and it has even been known to reduce the feeling of violence as it is a calming colour. In Texas, prison cells are painted pink and inmates wear pink to calm them down – and this includes the male inmates!
With the above in mind, you need to pay particular attention to the colour of your corporate branding including websites, exhibition stands and marketing collateral. If you would like to know more about how correct use of colour can improve your sales, call Vicky at The Brand Surgery on 01903 824229.
Todd Carty is a good example of how one can adapt oneself to attract a particular target audience. From a heart throb in “Grange Hill”, to a 13-year stint as Mark Fowler in “EastEnders”, to a dodgy copper PC Gabriel Kent in ITV’s “The Bill”, to ice skating spectacular in “Dancing on Ice”. In between, Todd Carty has worked on radio, stage and has been directing and producing programmes such as “Doctors” and “The Perfect Burger”.
Does your company branding appeal to both ends of the spectrum?
Is your company branding as flexible as Todd Carty? Depending on your company’s services and products, it may need to appeal to a wide range of demographics. Take a theatre producing its bi-annual theatre programme or website: The design would need to appeal to customers wanting to see a Shakespeare performance through to the latest comedy – perhaps Eddie Izzard. Some people may want to see both! How do you know what design and wording appeals to your customers? Simple. It’s called research.
If you don’t have time to do the research, then leave it to us. Before our brand doctors and nurses even start on writing copy, designing brochures or corporate identity – we spend time looking at your competition and studying your target market, so you know that your marketing collateral will tick the boxes, and achieve sales.
If you would like to find out more about your target market and competitor research, call us on 01903 824229.
