Role: Based in Wales, Interpreting clients' briefs in the most creative, practical and cost-effective way, Haydn draws up plans for the technical team to build.
Best bit of the job: Always moving on to the next challenge. Live Events design is never repetitive, there's something new all the time.
Secret of our success: I've got a card on the wall from a client that says 'All the visitors were blown away by your design, and once again you've made live event marketing really easy.' That sums it up. We think of everything from the client's point of view. Whether it's our comprehensive and clear pricing, or it's making sure our ideas stack perfectly (we don't leave clients to unpack boxes of sales materials, for example) — we pay attention to every detail.
Role: Working with the Creative Team - estimating new projects and account management. Responsible for our ISO standards and general project management. Also involved in internal marketing projects.

Tips for great marketing: Never work alone! The best ideas come from working with creative people. You don’t need to have all the answers, talking, sharing and testing it with other creative individuals will make a good idea even better.
Success of Creation? We deliver on time and to budget and can come up with some great ideas a long the way. We are also a friendly team and honest people to work with.
Role: To project from concept through to delivery, liaising with clients and technical teams. Also involved in new business research and sales.

Best bit of the job: Results. There's a lot of vanity our business — people want the biggest, the flashiest — but what's most important is that we deliver the best sales opportunities. Money well spent makes me happy — when a client puts in 10 and gets back 100 — seeing real results for clients is good.

Role: Rob is the lead graphic designer, working on projects from initial brief to completion. Highly experienced in print, digital and live event graphics, Rob also liaises with clients and art directs marketing photo shoots.
Best bit of the job: Coming up with the initial concepts is still the most exciting part of a designers job.

Role: Andy manages the planning and execution for our Live Events marketing. Draws up detailed plans, sorts every detail, decides on best methods of construction. A background in event construction means he really knows his stuff. Andy also handles most of our overseas live events.
Best bit of the job: The handover. It's a real buzz when the client sees our work for the first time. Although they'll have seen all the design, and concpets, it's not the same as seeing the real thing.
Tip for a great marketing: Detailed planning. I like to have plans B,C, D and E up my sleeve in case things don't work out the way I wanted. I'd say that for a client at a live event, planning is everything too. Think about how you're going to spend your time, what your potential customers want, and make sure you organise your team to deliver.
Role: Role involves taking a client’s brief and developing it into a creative, innovative and achievable design. This involves the production of concept sketches, 3D computer model, visuals, animations and detailed construction drawings.
Best bit of the job: Starting out with a blank sheet of paper (or blank computer screen, these days) and ending up with something that answers the brief in a fresh and exciting way. No two clients, no two designs, are ever the same. That’s where the excitement lies.
Tip for great marketing: Understand your brand: your live event presence is an extension and an expression of your brand’s identity and values. Make sure it says the right things about you. And finally, never be afraid to try something new!

A Creative Blend...A mix of highly experienced graphic designers.
Creation's team is made of highly experienced graphic designers, with over 25 years of commercial graphic design expertise, and junior graphic designers with cutting edge skills and new ideas. Together we bring fresh perspective and business acumen to create print projects that make a big impact.
At Creation we're flexible about how we work with clients. Some come to us with a specific goal — they need a brochure for a sales conference, say, or a microsite to support a new product launch. These clients have marketing strategies in place, so we work to fit their existing brand guidelines and ensure our design slots into their existing portfolio.
Other clients come to us for more general help with their marketing — they want to tell the world about a new product or service, but don't have a strategy. At Creation we can help with this too.
Working fast...Deesn't mean compromising on quality.
At Creation we understand the pressures on you to get results, and we deliver projects on time and on budget.
Our years of experience make us able to turn around projects quickly, deal with third party suppliers efficiently, and manage the process so that you hit your deadlines.
Good communication is at the heart of good project management, and at Creation we’re very easy to deal with.
Making a connection… Skillful delivery matches the medium to the message.
Whether it's print, digital or exhibition — our work will connect with your customers and call them to action.
We've been in the graphic design business a long time, and our experience makes us well placed to advise on the very best way to get your message across. Our clients benefit because we know what works.
Creation is a very safe pair of hands on any print media project. Details are important to us — understanding typography means you can be assured that your words will look their best on the page, and your message will have impact. We can advise you on paper quality and finishes, and recommend trusted printers who share our commitment to quality. Or we can handle the whole project from start to finish ourselves.
Talk to us about your brochure, newsletter, direct mail project. We'd love to help.
Not just your logo...Your corporate identity needs to work well across many mediums. From print to mobile phone application, and everything in between — your corporate identity needs to make an impact. Our designs are memorable, and help clients stand out from the crowd.
We work with everyone from Bristol to nationally established companies looking to refresh their brand to meet new market challenges, through to new startups just setting out on the road to business success. All our clients appreciate the fact that we can handle the whole process — from initial ideas to professional fulfillment.
Branded...Your brand is everything you say and do.
From your logo to the way you answer the phone, every interaction shapes your brand. At Creation we work with clients to create brand guidelines that help them get across their message in the very best way. Copy, tone of voice, imagery, and photographic style need to work brilliantly together — so we help our clients get it right.
Look at our branding work to see how we apply brands across the board.
Feel the quality...There's something reassuring about a well designed brochure.
In fact, we're seeing a resurgence of demand for printed brochures. Maybe it's because they're so tactile, or perhaps because they're a rewarding leave behind for sales teams — whatever the reason, we're glad because fantastic brochures are a Creation Design speciality.
We relish the opportunity to create something striking, that captures a sales message and executes it perfectly. From small flyers to 60 page brochures, our graphic and brochure designs really get results.
The best direct mail campaigns blend the tightest copy with the smartest design for outstanding results.
A single piece of direct mail can work alone — a clever teaser that brings in leads to convert to sales — or direct mail can be part of a larger marketing campaign.
Successful Creation campaigns include packing Bottelino's for a new restaurant opening, and getting the nation's farmers together for a big Sainsbury's conference.
We can put together the whole campaign, from concept through to delivery, mailing, data and response handling. We work to suit you.
Effective Advertising...Our ads are well designed and eye catching.
At Creation Advertising we develop and deliver consumer and B2B advertising concepts for many clients. Our ads are well designed and eye catching, and frequently seen in lifestyle and consumer magazines, the trade press, and in many outdoor advertising sites.
We have the technological skills to create fantastic websites, email campaigns, flash sites, and slick AV presentations, but it's our graphic design capabilities that our clients love.
Starting every new Creation media project asking 'what does this need to do for the customer?' means Creation new media projects deliver outstanding results.
Personalisation is the smartest way to reach your target audience, and Creation Cascade is a simple and cost effective way of reaching your people.

We approach websites and digital projects with a strong focus on functionality. Users should always know where to go next. Our sites are intuitive, clean, and they get results.
Connect and captivate… Capture your message and tell it compellingly.
Well presented audiovisuals are invaluable for big audience presentations, giving you the time to break your message down into bite-sized chunks and tell a story at a pace right for your delegates.
Slick presentations are more than great sales tools — they work well for training too, and we can tailor them to fit your audience and brand. Interactive exhibition stands pull people in, if the experience is engaging and rewarding, and the message is right.
