Irongate are in business! Posted: Sep 2016

After months in the making, we are proud to reveal our new brand for Irongate, a national business supplies company.

Established in 1977, Irongate already had a great heritage and reputation which we didn’t want to lose. We created a refreshed identity that both unifies the Irongate brand and reflects their vibrant personality.

As Irongate’s services are so varied, a ‘one size fits all’ visual approach wouldn’t have worked, so we chose to redefine the sub-brands using three categories; Indispensable, Inspired and Intelligent. These allowed us to create sub-brands which have strength and individuality through differing colours and imagery, while still retaining a family connection. A further addition to the brand suite is InOne, Irongate’s pioneering web portal that saves businesses time and money on procurement by providing all services in one place.

To give the new branding an online home m360 also designed and built not one but seven mobile optimised websites, each in their own quirky style. Full of exciting visuals, these will be vital in showing customers everything Irongate has to offer.

Local design talent Posted: Sep 2016

This month we welcome another addition to the studio. Tom (Nottingham born and bred), joins us with a BA(Hons) Multimedia degree from NTU and over 3 years’ experience working on a wide range of projects including branding, annual reports and web design. He’s even branded the odd Frisbee and ping pong ball in his time. When he’s not designing, he enjoys reading, watching classic films (think more Hitchcock than Top Gun) and the odd bit of gaming.

Look familiar to you? Well that’s because he’s appeared on Italian TV news…in a Sinclair C5. Don’t ask.

Search results on fire Posted: Aug 2016

We were commissioned by the Microtex Group to develop a Firemizer PPC campaign in April, aiming to drive traffic and sales to the new e-commerce we have recently developed.

m360 regularly track responses then provide a detailed monthly performance report and keyword recommendations. Having carefully selected a range of keywords relevant to their different audiences, Firemizer are making the most of Adwords/Search Engine Marketing, with over 800,000 impressions each month!

A fresh new website Posted: Jul 2016

Following the successful launch of their new branding, the Berry Garden Services website is now live, just in time for the summer!

As a leading Midlands based professional landscape contractor they offer a complete tailored solution for domestic and commercial gardens – architecture and design, construction and build, maintenance and customer care. We created a simple site to showcase their projects and services as well as allow visitors to easily navigate to the sector relevant to them.

Our growing agency welcomes Neale Posted: Jun 2016

We have a new Senior Account Manager heading up the m360 Account Services Team. Neale Mighall (it’s pronounced “Mile”) brings to m360 a wealth of experience from his 15-year marketing career; which has seen him create marketing strategies for organisations big and small, across a wide range of sectors, a CIM certification and some cracking stories. Also a former touring guitarist, Neale loves to come up with new and innovative creative strategies and looks forward to bringing a bit of ROCK to your brand.

A Website that’s out of this World! Posted: May 2016

We’re over the moon with the brand new, online home for one of our favourite clients Planet Bounce.

Planet Bounce is the home of over 70 interconnected trampolines that encourage all ages to defy gravity and literally bounce off the walls! it doesn’t matter if you’re four years old or an action sports hero, you can experience the enjoyment of taking your own “giant leap for mankind”.

A young, fun and exciting business needs a website that reflects their brand, so we were delighted when they approached us with their website brief.

The brief had some specific requirements. It needed to be designed for mobile first to accommodate their young demographic, they wanted to take bookings online…oh and it had to look “out of this world”.

m360 rose to the challenge and their new website is now live. With integrated social, their new Corby centre open, alongside Nottingham, Planet Bounce’s success will only continue, one giant bounce at a time!

Another member of the team hops on board! Posted: Apr 2016

We were delighted to welcome a new face to m360 last month, when Ugne Kuzaite joined the team as an Account Executive. Once we’d learned how to pronounce her name correctly (it’s Ug-nee-ah by the way), she has quickly become an integral part of the growing Client Services team and is working across a number of clients to deliver first-class campaigns. We look forward to the future with Ugne on board!

A new client for us to examine… Posted: Mar 2016

We’ve just won a brilliant new client – VP Forensic is a leading specialist nursing agency, specialising in providing high-quality care for complex health needs. We can’t wait to get started on resolving their brand proposition and designing a new website to elevate them above the competition.

Happy Esther Posted: Mar 2016

We have a very special studio intern for the next two weeks – welcome Esther! Bright eyed and bushy tailed, Esther hails from the local village of Bunny and is currently studying at the University of Yolk. She’s brought a basketful of brilliant ideas to m360 already, including printing all of our business cards on chocolate, printing all of our brochures on chocolate, and printing all of our billboards on chocolate. Sadly whenever we try to take a photo of Esther, she inexplicably hops away to the cellar.

Out of this world Posted: Feb 2016

If you haven’t experienced Nottingham’s brand-new trampoline park yet, it comes with our recommendation. And did we mention that we’re responsible for their exterior branding and internal customer journey graphics.

The venue delivers an ‘out of this world experience’ – so we worked with the team to develop a visual style and tone of voice that walks customers through the venue as if they are on a journey into space – arriving at mission control, completing a mission briefing, jumping into space and refuelling at the cafe.
