Bold new design puts Arc Energy at the cutting edge
Once upon a time, branding involved burning a distinguishing symbol into the hide of cattle. Today, it is far more sophisticated process, though the principle remains the same. The core purpose of a brand is to stand out. Local manufacturing company, Arc Energy Resources brought in Stroud-based design agency, The Creative Consortium to help their brand do just that.
Established in 1994, Arc Energy Resources has grown into a multi-million pound business with over 70 staff, trading with some of the largest companies in the world. Yet its brand was becoming out-dated and did not reflect its market position and stature.
Project Manager Martin Sandles brought in The Creative Consortium to turn things around. He was not disappointed; the new look catapulted Arc Energy Resources very boldly into the 21stCentury with a striking image change. To the outside world, Arc Energy Resources now looks contemporary and the high calibre and quality of the company’s work is clearly visible. The use of a burnished orange stylishly evokes Arc Energy Resources’ core welding and fabrication services.
Martin Sandles comments:
“ Our new image has been a huge success, we are delighted with the work The Creative consortium has done for us. Feedback has been excellent and we are regularly told that our website is one of the very best in our niche market sector. What’s more, the site is very straightforward to work with, which allows us to easily and effectively communicate with our clients.”
Having produced a range of marketing materials and exhibition designs, The Creative Consortium continues to work with Arc Energy Resources, ensuring that their corporate image remains fresh and alive.
Tim Adams Creative Director and Owner of The Creative Consortium comments:
“We relished the challenge of putting our creative expertise into devising a brand refresh for a company within a sector not especially know for contemporary styling. Martin Sandles and his team were wonderful to work with; they were open to new ideas and did not shy away from a radical change of image. Most importantly we are delighted the new look is working so well for their business.”
