Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Advertising Screens

Written by York Print Company on 09/03/2017

“I was in gridlock traffic stuck in Newcastle in the pouring rain when I looked up at this massive advertisement screen 4 lanes wide. I saw the name FORREST MEDIA on the side & rang them up. Unbelievably, they put me through to the MD, I emailed him a pdf of my book & hit it off with him straight away.  “Let’s do this. It’s a great idea!” Marc said.

The campaign links in ideas from the book DEAR DEMENTIA: the laughter & the tears & the work in Wellburn Care Homes.

The soundbites on the screens give a different view of those living with dementia.”

Ian Donaghy – author of Dear Dementia

After getting the go-ahead to use the screens for his campaign, we were approached by Ian Donaghy. He was in need of Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Roadside Advertising Screens. They had to be simple, clean and bold so that the key messages came across instantly.

As you can see, they were a great success!

Christmas Card Printing

Written by York Print Company on 17/12/2015

xmas_presenceFree Christmas Card Printing for Xmas Presence.

After seeing a post on Facebook and The York Press we decided to help Xmas Presence by printing their Christmas Cards/Invites free of charge.

Ian Donaghy announced his initial plans for Xmas Presence in The Press earlier this year, and says residents and companies have since responded brilliantly.

THE organiser of a huge Christmas charity event in York says he has been overwhelmed by the city’s generous response – but says more help is still possible.

The event, at Belfrey Hall in Stonegate, will provide a Christmas Day meal and celebration for more than 40 older York residents who live alone.

He said: “A team of friends, family and volunteers met at the venue on Monday evening to hatch a plan and social media has been buzzing with activity since with offers of making, baking and decorating.

“We are trying to capture the special feeling Christmas had as a child. We will be providing Christmas dinner and a light tea as well, and special hampers filled with homemade gifts, York’s finest produce and wonderful items will be given out to the guests.”

Mr Donaghy has worked closely with Age UK. He said: “We realise that there are other groups who could benefit but we can’t be all things to all men.”

He said the John Lewis “man on the moon” advert had captured the public’s imagination, but he said: “We’re not sending the bloke a telescope – we’re inviting him down for a party!”

Poster Printing for Apothecary 87

apothPoster Printing for Apothecary 87

So that the posters were in-keeping with their core brand values, we were asked to print the posters on an uncoated paper. This gives a lovely natural feel.

Apothecary 87

At A87, we ask ourselves:

“What is a well groomed MAN?”

Well, we sat down and used our MAN brains until we came up with an answer. “A well groomed MAN is not merely a MAN who uses great products on his hair and body, but a MAN who can present himself in his own desired way, through all aspects of his lifestyle.”

So, with this in our MAN minds, we have taken measures to help our fellow MEN achieve this, with our Lifestyle range.

Are you ready to feel like the manliest man of all man time? Contact Apothecary 87 today to discuss our fabulous beard and moustache creams, oils and waxes – http://www.apothecary87.co.uk/

Re-Branding Design for Shhhh Hair & Beauty

(formely known as Edward Charles Hair Design)

After re-freshing Edward Charles’ branding two years prior, they have decided to move forward with a new name and new identity! Edward Charles Hair Design is now

Shhhh Hair & Beauty!

Brief:

  • Feminine Shabby Chic
  • Pink, cream, brown and a touch of turquoise.
  • Great Standout
  • Logo to work well on various stationery but also be iconic enough to stand alone.

We created this beautiful, feminine, floral design with an oval icon logo, that would also stand alone. It has now been transferred across all their stationery etc., so that the branding is uniformed, from Pricelists and Business Cards to the Shop Signage.  For more information or to book an appointment contact Shhh on 01904 659639 or visit them at 20B Walmgate, York, North Yorkshire County YO1 9TJ
