We design

What are our aims for 2015?

Now we are in the midst of January we're taking a brief look back at 2014 and looking forward to the year ahead by sharing our aims and aspirations for 2015.

We had our busiest year ever last year and had great fun in the process, working on a wide variety of projects. We brought no less than ten new websites to life for various clients such as Davidson Walsh and The Selling Academy. We also oversaw the rebranding of both Financial Associates and Grafx, we had great fun with the latter adding a splash of colour to their High Street store. We also helped launch start-ups Cheltenham Tea Party and LeMay Consultants.

We were fortunate enough to work on a number of illustrative projects last year, a favorite aspect of our skill-set. We particularly enjoyed putting together infographics, especially for Winston's Wish – watch this space for something wonderfully ‘infographical' coming your way soon!

Internally we invested and fully overhauled our whole I.T infrastructure ensuring we are embracing the latest technology. We moved away from our old paper based timesheets by developing our own in-house cloud based system (doing our bit for environment), another example of skills that you may not know we possess! On top of all this we somehow managed to find the time to refresh our own website as well!

We would love to help launch more start-ups by assisting with their branding and design, which is an essential element to consider when starting out. As always we'd love to work with new faces and expand our portfolio; getting the message across that there is a lot more to Maple Rock than your typical design agency! We're often asked 'Can you do this?' – the answer will most likely be 'Yes' – we're not ones to turn down a challenge!

Finally we're thrilled to be taking the reins of the @chelt52 twitter account later in the year, and look forward to welcoming you into our world for a week and inviting you to take part in our extra special competition!

So 2015 looks to be another exciting and busy year for us and we are really excited as to what is in store. On a lighter note we'd love a new coffee machine for the office and a staff day out… (all fairly achievable)!

We've thought about our 2015, but what does it hold for your business? It might be you're thinking of a brand refresh, updating your printed literature or bringing your website up to date with the latest technologies, Maple Rock can help!

It may even be that you don't actually have a business yet but there has always been a burning desire to start something of your own. Why not get in touch with us today to discuss all elements of branding/design, we'd love to help you achieve your goals for 2015!
