With Construction Marketing Design the nature of how business is done is changing fast and now is the time to consider what you are going to do to future proof your business.
I know from speaking to key figures in the industry that the next 3 years will be crucial to construction business’s just like yours – whether you are a tradesman, builders merchant or supplier. This is where you’ll need to ensure you stand out in the market place with design that not only captures peoples attention – but also performs in terms of sales leads – Be it a website, advertising campaign or branding overhaul, it needs to look ‘Professional’ and it needs to make an ‘IMPACT’ on your bottom line.
My services cover all aspects of design and marketing to help you achieve your business objectives including:
BRAND DESIGN | PRINT DESIGN | DIGITAL DESIGN | ILLUSTRATION
Illustration and Print Design for Swiss giant Leica
When you fuse good print design with illustration and a strong core message you have every chance of shouting louder than the rest when it comes to ad campaigns and trade shows. In 2012 I was be chosen by Swiss giant Leica Geosystems to market their new range of laser measurement devices.

Final design for Shop Spec – Annual Trade Magazine for Professional Shop Fitters
What did Leica need?
To establish product awareness with everyday builders and professional shop fitters.
What did you do?
- Working alongside Leica’s European Marketing Team I produced several professional illustrations of their current range of laser distance measurers in the style of “Transformer” robots.
- The first solution was to produce an advertorial for trade industry magazine Shop Spec – I also designed the page layout and assisted writing some of the copy
- The second solution was to have these illustrations turned into giant sized promotional cutout stands for Leica to use at trade shows. I designed the belt of the large Disto character to hold additional promotional leaflets.
My design gave Leica a strong visual eye catching presence in two ways – The ad in Shop Spec increased sales leads over a sustained period. The life size cut out was also a huge success that drew a lot of attention at Leica’s trade show events – increasing leads and sales with third party sellers taking up the design to use in their own stores.

Using Design to Create a ‘Professional IMPACT’
For design to work in a commercial environment it has to have the right message coupled with a professional look and feel that exudes trust. It has to creates that ‘gut feeling’ in your client that they can’t help but want to know more…

Full Brand for ABC Depot
Just like IBC, ABC Depot is part of the Allneeds Group. Below is a snapshot of some of the design I have produced for them since 2012. From design and signage to their vehicle fleet and even their affable ‘Bertie Bucket’ character, I am humbled and honoured to be working with some truly great people!
ABC Depot was started by Vick Patel and his family back in 1990. Based in Finchley they built their business over the last 20 years and have since been fantastically successful. 2012 saw the construction of their brand new flagship superstore in Hertfordshire. Given their ambition to become a nationally recognized business, they needed a strong brand that would enable to not just compete with the best. But be the best!
Introducing Bertie Bucket
The results so far have been extremely positive in terms of brand recognition. As part of the Allneeds Group of companies on going expansion, ABC are fast establishing themselves as a recognised and trusted builders merchant throughout Hertfordshire. I’ll bring you more on this story as it develops with our big launch planned for later this year.
