2016 UK Rail Industry Awards : Thursday 11th February 2016
St Pancras International has been successfully shortlisted for the “Marketing Communications Award” for its suite of station websites designed by the Surgery. The new station sites and HS1 corporate website have increased traffic, visitor numbers and returning visitors, and created a live environment that puts focus on the most important and relevant information when people need it most.
The Surgery has been growing, expanding and moving into new areas. In order to represent all of our core disciplines – Brand, Digital Design and Internal Communications, we have refreshed our identifying mark. The typestyle stays the same, but the familiar cross has been given more personality. Whilst retaining the familiarity of the original red cross, the new icon becomes a delicate grid of multi-toned red and grey squares representing the simplification of complex messaging through clear design and strategy.
We hope you’ll like it!
We have just completed a rebrand for US-based change consultancy business JMW and we just had to share our latest testimonial! As the brand and website went live, their CEO Jerry Straus, mailed our team with the following message:
“If one needed to take care of something very important, why not seek out the best doctors known to mankind?
“Well my dear surgeons, you were the answer to that question. You have taken care of us beyond expectation. And, you made it delightful in the process.
“The more I visit the website, the more I discover, the more I love, which leaves me excited about JMW’s Future. You have done a brilliant job at capturing the essence – the DNA of JMW – and you have helped position us as unique and relevant.
“Thank you for all that you have contributed to our business.”
