These days, with the majority of business being conducted online, it’s absolutely imperative that brands focus on their website and make sure that they appeal to their customer base… otherwise it would hardly be surprising if people decide to take their custom elsewhere.
Every now and again, you’ll feel the need to rebrand your business to stay competitive and in line with changes in your particular industry – and it’s safe to say that in our ever-changing world, this is the only way to stay afloat. You’ve got to evolve or you’ll fade into obscurity… that’s practically a given.
MetOne – an Office of Learning
MetOne has been privileged with how we have developed as a company. Not only have we grown clients year on year also our team.
Aaron is the origin of our team base. As Martin worked hard to develop MetOne from the beginning, he needed someone that could help him push the company forward. Aaron joined as a work experience and quickly moved into an apprenticeship. Working closely with Martin he learned the ropes of both Print and Design and later Web/Digital. After he completed his apprenticeship he continued to work closely with the team expanding the foundation of the business and all starting from a simple email talking about work experience.
Our work with Thorpe house is one our biggest examples of community embracement. We have supported Thorpe house with various projects over the years. They have an active Facebook page and were nice enough to capture our work with the school during a recent project we assisted with called Thorpe fest. It is important to develop relationships as a company and we are thankful for our great relationship with Thorpe House.
Sam Mueller is a Level 3 squash coach and also a player for England Squash. Recently her work for Schools and her Coaching has hit a point were she wanted a update to her Website. She was using wordpress and didn’t quite know how to take her website to the point where she could be happy to show it off. That is where MetOne came to help.
We took her current website and a variant of other aspects such as social media integration and her catalogue of images from all of her tournaments and coaching sessions and developed a website she would be proud off. With a one month turnaround on the website we took all of the content and put it into a really smooth and professional looking layout. One of the most important parts of this was the idea that she will be coaching children. We needed it to stick out and attract those children into the world of squash.
Yalden DIY and Garden in a stunning business that works in so many different departments ranging within the household and Garden and we have been working with them on some recent projects to ensure they are showing their business in the light it deserves.
The first part of this project was looking at the design and creation of a fully-fledged website. This included a range of products pages detailing the various services and products that Yalden supplies. Accompanied by loyalty and trade forms for their consistent customers and finally a RSS feed for the front page to ensure that their customers are getting the best deal possible and getting those deals all the time through seeing it on their social medias but also on their website.
“Stick your neck out! It’s better to start something, knowing you may not succeed, than never to try.”
This has to be one of my favourite quotes from Giraffe Coaching who are an amazing life-coaching group. When they came to Met1 they were a newly started business giving us a whole range of ideas and goals that they wanted to achieve. The first aspect of any work we do is start at the very beginning. Our work is very much a building process and once you find a personality for the business you can build a design suited to expressing that to the public in a way that speaks to them and tells a story.
VOPAG also known as the Village Older Persons Action Group is a amazing business that looks into the development and awareness of the local people. They look to ensure that they are given a space to converse and exchange views of common interest and concern in a open environment. They do this by having a range of speakers throughout the year.
Met1 were tasked with the development of a Christmas information card. This was to be given out to member of VOPAG to inform them of all the events in the coming months and also give some more information about VOPAG for those that are not informed. They conducted an art competition for the design of the front cover of the card and then the card was given to us with the tasking for developing a Christmas Card style information card.
TMC have become one of our best clients and they continue to grow as our business grows creating a strong relationship between the two companies. Tardis Medical Consultancy established in 2003 and have been growing consistently ever since. Their major work includes seminars with pharmaceutical companies for various reasons.
TMC have an office within Chalfont St Peter making them an ideal client for ourselves as we have quick and easy access to communication with them on any matters allowing us to provide the best service to meet their needs. This also makes our work easier as delivering them print can be done on the day it is completed allowing us to meet their schedule affectively.
Wanda and the Alien is a highly successful children’s book series published by Random House (RH). RH partnered up with digital publishing company Komixx to take Wanda to the new media markets. Komixx began their extraordinarily successful run by licensing Wanda and the Alien to appear on Channel 5’s Milkshake programme as an animated cartoon.
Children loved it, and rightly so.
Then RH and Komixx decided to take Wanda in-house. Literally. They wanted Wanda, her delightful three-headed Alien friend and the other characters to be emblazoned across everything that a child might have in their home. This could include duvet covers, crockery, pyjamas, drawing books, wallpaper, curtains and schoolbags.
