the result

“We’ve used Emerge design for lots of projects in the past but this was the first time that we’d used them for an online page turner. Following a meeting with the team to discuss our requirements we felt confident that Emerge would be able to deliver what we required.

Due to many parties being involved and feeding into this document, we explained that there could be lots of changes along the way, Emerge took this all on board and also made suggestions on approaches they felt could work for us and were very patient whilst we went through approvals our end.

Although this project took longer than first anticipated (due to delays or end) this was never a concern to Emerge, something that has been an issue with other agencies in the past. Overall we are very happy with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to use Emerge Design again, no job is a problem and the fast turnaround is always A+.

LEAP – Management Resource Toolkit

ABB and Alexander Proudfoot worked together to develop a resource planning toolkit. The collaborative project was called ‘LEAP’ and the strapline is ‘Resource Effectiveness’.

Leap stands for:
L = leadership
E = excellence
A = and
P = productivity

Emerge worked alongside both companies to design and produce a guideline to the essentials of resource planning. The toolkit is the final outcome of this project.

We designed the toolkit cover with special Half-Canadian binding method that hides the binding almost entirely using a wrap-around card cover, leaving just a subtle curve of wire exposed on the back cover (shown in the project photos below).

Our work on the project included:

  • LEAP project logo design
  • Copywriting
  • Design, infographics, artwork and print production of an 80 page toolkit guideline with internal flap that contained a system map insert
  • USB sticks containing resource files

We asked Nomique – Why work with Emerge?

Meet Nomique, a British designer and manufacturer of quality seating and furniture for the contract market and the creators of WORKSPHERE, a truly unique concept in workplace design. To launch and promote their new concept, they needed an intelligent, innovative partner who would work with them to truly understand their goals and come up with the ideas and tangible products that would stand out and get them noticed. They found that partner in Emerge.

Let’s go back a step – what did Nomique want to achieve?

In recent years the contract furniture market had seen significant growth in soft seating and breakout area furniture, but this had not been reflected in our sales. We wanted to find out why – and how we could improve our performance.

A solid plan – based on research

We worked on a thorough investigation into this product area to find out what the market  really wanted. The result was Worksphere, a specially developed range of furniture featuring many new designs – a challenge in itself! But the bigger challenge was how to launch and inspire the rest of the world about the new concept…

Was there a particular deadline?

We were keen to launch the product at the prestigious Clerkenwell Design Week in May – which only gave us 12 weeks to get everything ready. This would be followed by a second weeks later – and the project is still ongoing.

What was the Emerge team like to work with?

They were great: lots of proactive ideas and very responsive as the project evolved. We had about four face-to-face meetings on site as well as having regular email and telephone communication.

And what were the things they came up with?

They developed the whole Worksphere brand: they then created a new website, complete with 3D movie and other promotional materials including the invitation and presentation pack for the launch event.

The invitation was a particular focus because it needed to be far more than a simple card in an envelope: it had to be attention grabbing and memorable. Emerge explained that they’d researched how people react to direct mail and found that if they receive a thicker package in the post, they are more inclined to open and keep it.

Building on this, their concept for the pack was a ‘swatch book’ design, like fabric samples, which tied in perfectly to Worksphere being a range of customisable furniture. It was also very familiar to our target audience, i.e. the types of people who will be reselling Worksphere – distributors and dealers of furniture.

Emerge was able to offer all of the elements including design, copywriting, launch video, web development – even bringing in a specialist 3D artist. View the website at: worksphere.nomique.com

What’s been the response to the promotion?

It was undoubtedly the best product launch we have ever had and we are very optimistic about future soft seating sales growth.

We’ve been really pleased with the level of response to Worksphere, there’s been a lot of interest and sales are beginning to come in. But it’s the next 6-12 months that will really be the proof of success.

What’s your lasting impression of Emerge?

Their ability to create an overall, cohesive plan – and carry it through.

The detail in the logo design was based on cutting out sections of the letters in the name Worksphere to create a unique logotype.

Who worked on this project:

From Nomique: John Ravenhall (MD), Nigel Barker (Sales Director), Trevor Bloxham (Design Manager) and Grace Grandon (Marketing & Interiors).

From Emerge: Matthew Kent (Web & Video Designer), Harbinder Ahir (Graphic Designer) and Dom Hollins (Artworker).

What the people at Nomique say:

‘Emerge listened carefully to our requirements and understood our objectives with the Worksphere brand and then came up with a really effective launch campaign. Their communication was always clear and they were very responsive to our needs.’

Using infographic design to promote Telford as a destination of future investment

Did you know that Telford is the birthplace of industry and that it is the fastest growing town in the West Midlands?

Nor did we… until we worked with Telford & Wrekin Council to design a promotional cover for the Midland Business Insider magazine.

The cover and advert was created in the style of a ‘Barn Door’ format. Meaning that the cover opened to reveal key messages inside and on the back. Emerge developed an infographic based concept to display all the information.

The campaign brief highlights Telford as a destination of growth, with the aim to attract further business investment into Telford.

Festive posters and barrier branding for Discover Telford

Crowd and safety barriers don’t have to be plain and functional. Why not ask Emerge for a set of branded barrier covers? They are a great way to get your brand visible at festivals, sports events, concerts, processions and many other public events.

Emerge produced a series of barrier and poster designs that featured festive messages and imagery. The material was used at the Telford European Christmas Market and other local tourist attractions.

We worked with Discover Telford, who are part of the Telford & Wrekin Council, our brief was to keep the artwork consistent with other material created by Discover Telford.
