A hat-trick of historic celebrations

A hat-trick of historic celebrations

Every year is important, but 2016 especially so for us as it is a landmark anniversary for the Onside team as well as a couple of our clients. This year, Onside turn 10. Much has changed since we first set up a decade ago on our journey to being recognised as a leading brand and ideas agency. It’s also an exhilarating time for growth, with roots extending further south to the Cotswolds and beyond. Here, we share our anniversary year with clients ’79 Group’ based in Cheltenham and ‘L&L Installations’ in Tewkesbury who are celebrating their 10th year and 35th year respectively with an exciting evolution in their brand, online presence and literature.
Why not take a closer look at some of the marketing services we have developed and honed over the last 10 years. If you feel your brand could do with a creative boost, get in touch and find out how we can make things happen?

Supporting EMSEA with cutting edge design

Supporting EMSEA with cutting edge design

We started working with EMSEA, Tewkesbury at the start of 2016. They are a successful Laser Cutting, Waterjet Cutting, Fabrication and Forming manufacturing company based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire who offer an incredibly exciting range of services. EMSEA came to Onside looking for an experienced creative agency who will transform their literature and current website to reflect their brand and product. Following photography, and event stand design, we have just finished creating an impressive buytramadolbest.com suite of folders and inserts, incorporating laser cut icons and de-bossing to reflect their specialisms, which will leave any potential client in absolutely no doubt that they are dealing with high quality, industry leaders. With a new website design and build next on the list, 2016 is an exciting year for EMSEA, and we look forward to partnering them on the journey!

Photography – Power of great images

Photography – Power of great images

As a genuinely full service marketing agency, many of our monthly support clients benefit from regular photography, photography that we fulfil in-house.

It allows them to build up a high quality library of images to use throughout a wide range of marketing materials – brochures, events, websites, advertising etc. In fact, with our creative approach, a message is greatly enhanced by the use of original photography, shot for that particular purpose. We are based near Manchester, but with clients who require monthly creative support or ad hoc marketing projects throughout the UK, we regularly travel far and wide for clients such as Hehku, Jungheinrich, Street Crane, Hantall and more. Take a look at some of the bespoke photography we have delivered for a wide range of marketing for manufacturing, lifestyle marketing, retail, hospitality and property clients across a wide variety of projects.

If you feel your current photography is letting your brand or product down, get in touch with Onside today and ask Dave about how we can bring your marketing to life. Never underestimate the power of great images.

Celebrating success with our client Oakwrights

Celebrating success with our client Oakwrights

Since we started working with Oakwrights in Hereford 3 years ago, we have worked hard with them to grow their brand into true industry leaders of oak frame homes and buildings in the UK. A couple of years ago, they achieved their very first back-to-back £1 million sales success, and of the first 6 months of this financial year, they have exceeded £1 million in 5 of those months. This called for even bigger celebrations at this year’s annual barbecue at their head office in Hereford. John and Dave headed along to join in the fun- even getting their country heads on and ‘wild camping’ in an adjoining field. As you will see from our video, following the traditional Oakwrights axe throwing competition, maybe we should maybe stick to marketing… As specialist in marketing manufacturing companies, Onside Creative were where Oakwrights turned when they decided to #makethingshappen. Find out what we can do for you…

Vulcan’s last flight over Woodford

Vulcan’s last flight over Woodford

Last weekend, we waved goodbye to the legendary Avro Vulcan XH558. First launched in 1956, the Vulcan retired in 1984 and the delta wing silhouette remains an iconic design even today.  A vision of Avro’s Chief Designer, Roy Chadwick, the plane has a fond memory for local residents who remember seeing the futuristic designs appear overhead many decades ago. For the younger fans, the delta wing design and incredible sound of the Vulcan XH558 epitomise everything about what a jet plane should be! The Onside team were there to wave her goodbye, and we thought we would share the experience with you in this video. Take a look!

Manufacturing marketing brochure – You make great things – we make great things happen!

Over the last decade, we have built a reputation as specialists in marketing manufacturing companies. The term covers a wide range of industries, but can be simply defined as a company that ‘makes things’. For our clients, this can range across a wide array of topamax products – cranes, lighting, luxurious kitchens, aluminium sliding doors, windows, incredible timber frame homes, fork lift trucks amongst many more. Throughout this time, we have established and built some really exciting brands, campaigns and ideas, so many, that we decided to showcase a few of them in a book which will be due out throughout the Summer. However, if you get in touch with us (either complete the request form, email john@onsidecreative.co.uk or call 01625 584464), we can send you an electronic version as soon as it’s complete, or post you a free copy when it lands on our doorstep from the printers. Our clients make great things – we make great things happen

As a full service agency, we work alongside a wide range of manufacturing and lifestyle clients in a flexible capacity. In some cases, we are a brand’s sole marketing resource, and in others, we work alongside their in house team. For global German manufacturing giants Jungheinrich, we create ideas and campaigns to successfully promote the brand in the UK market. With a growing focus in the UK, simply mirroring campaigns that have been rolled out in other markets is not an option. Onside create ideas that really stand out from Jungheinrich’s competitors and convey key messages in a targeted, informative and engaging manner. A recent campaign saw us promote the health and safety aspects of Jungheinrich’s products, portraying the built-in features within the trucks as created by their engineers who have health and safety in their DNA. Take a look at this and other work we have put together for Jungheinrich on our projects section where you will see a range of creative marketing campaigns in a wide range of sectors. Alternatively, call John or Dave on 01625 584464 to find out more.

Onside Creative. A Manchester, London & Cheltenham Design Agency

Onside have been growing ever since our creation nearly a decade ago as a Manchester creative agency. 2014 saw us set up a presence in London, and with demand ever increasing in the South, as a Cheltenham communications agency in early 2015. This was largely down to many of our existing clients growing to be based in multiple locations throughout the UK, and in addition to new clients around London and the Cotswolds, we understood just how important it is to meet face-to-face and therefore took the steps to ensure we continued to provide the level of attentive service that many creative agencies struggle to match. So, wherever you’re based, if you’re looking for a local full service design agency, get in touch and get Onside.

Onside Creative are more than just a Marketing Agency

As soon as we moved to Alderley Edge, we made it a priority to join in the great community spirit that exists within the village. Despite being just minutes from Manchester City centre, there is a close knit, friendly atmosphere and a unique rural feel. From playing in open mic nights at The Yard, to weekly 5 a side football matches against our neighbours The Bubbleroom, we have enjoyed becoming part of the Alderley Edge ‘furniture’ and known as the ‘Alderley Edge Marketing Agency‘. Taking place on a beautiful Summer’s evening last year, we organised a rounders match in the park. Involving a number of local businesses, and the odd spectating resident, everyone had a great time and blended a relaxing summer’s evening with a bit of fun. We’re planning on doing the same in 2015, so if you’re local to Alderley and interested in getting involved, call John or Dave on 01625 584464.

‘And the Award winner is…’

‘And the Award winner is…’

We measure our success on seeing our clients achieve new goals and grow. Due to how close we work with many of our clients, and how deeply we understand their brand and product, that quite often, we are genuinely seen as an extension of their team.

So, we are very proud of The Alderley Edge Hotel, who we started working with a couple of years ago. They were looking for a creative design agency to refresh their brand through a new website, new literature and brochures, ad campaigns, photography, and general monthly support important link. They have recently won the prestigious Eat Sleep Drink award for the Best Boutique Hotel 2015 – an incredible achievement and well deserved after much hard work.

With a wide range of clients over the years having earned various awards, from MBE’s to Which? accreditations, it’s no wonder that more and more companies are looking to bring their design and marketing Onside. If success is your goal, then your goal is our assist.
