A great night was had by all at the rather plush Trent Bridge venue and it was a laugh putting all of our work to one side and enjoy letting our hair down with the EMT team. Plus we were genuinely moved by how much pride there was in the room seeing the EMT team win some pretty amazing awards. Well done to all the winners, can’t wait for next year!

Impero software has lift off Posted: Oct 2013

Having worked on the new brand for software firm, Impero during the summer, it’s great to see the brand now out there in the public domain and doing great things for the company. It’s a really cool new chapter in the company’s story and it was really exciting to create a brand that not only works well across their market sectors, but also truly represents what they’re all about as a business.

As well as having the new look all over their marketing literature, we designed a fresh website which is easy to navigate and use on both desktop and mobile devices.

Digital experts Posted: Oct 2013

m360 were approached to redesign the Mark Group website. With the rise in demand for energy efficiency it is crucial that Mark Group launched a website that would set them apart from the competition and take them forward into a bright future.

The retail-focused site has been developed for three clear audiences: homeowners, businesses and properties in the public sector. The most important aspect was to create a clear, user friendly and consistent layout fit for a wide targeted audience.

m360 successfully achieved this by carefully planning the navigation and mapping system, whilst developing a bespoke WordPress CMS solution, giving the client full control over site content and navigation. Our studio created a brand new suite of icons in order to aid navigation and improve consumer usability.

Over the last 6 months Nottingham station has been a major focus for the whole team at m360. The Nottingham Re-signalling Project, which means 6 weeks of essential works at Nottingham station from 20 July… with limited train services out of the station, presented a huge communications challenge for the agency.

Months of planning and stakeholder management culminated in a comprehensive communications plan, including staff and customer communications both prior to and during the works, detailed station signage, promotional goods to enhance the travel experience and informative literature.

You may have seen Shirley, she’s the face of ‘We’re helping you to stay on the move’ – the Nottingham Re-signalling campaign. Shirley can be spotted around Nottingham station throughout August. You can follow her on Twitter too!

ChoiceOne become One Posted: Jul 2013

ChoiceOne is a worldwide group providing specialist services, primarily to the healthcare sector operating across different continents and cultures. They pride themselves on their global commitment to excellence, whilst its individual businesses retain the autonomy and independence to operate successfully within their specialist market. m360’s challenge was to create an internal communications campaign under one sub-brand which unites all its individual offices and staff.

The We Are One campaign speaks directly and personally to each team member helping the separate operations bind together with a sense of shared purpose. The campaign is all about connecting people, making colleagues feel valued and creating a sense of belonging within the global family.

A ChoiceOne world was created with hand drawn, merged cityscapes with each individual iconic building representing the ChoiceOne city locations and markets. The ‘doodle’ style illustrations were applied across many internal comms such as Yammer, digital screen savers, internal environmental graphics, office signage, staff incentives and give-a-ways. We Are One established internal uniformity across all offices worldwide, giving the whole of ChoiceOne global workforce a corporate image to be proud of.

Back to school Posted: Mar 2013

Our long established relationship with Grosvenor, South Nottingham’s leading independent day school, enabled us to produce a 2013 recruitment campaign.

Our unique approach was created to stand out in the education sector. We delivered a bright and friendly illustrative campaign – creating an approachable face for Grosvenor School.

A bespoke Russian doll illustration was created and the campaign copy marries the traditional Grosvenor look with a fresh, modern concept. Applied to posters, banners, web adverts, press adverts and bus-backs around the South of Nottingham – this campaign definitely has stand out.
