An award-winning, Dorset based, multi-disciplinary design agency is announcing three new prestigious contract wins, marking a period of significant growth for the market leading agency.
Salad Creative has secured partnerships with luxury hamper company Virginia Hayward; the Great British Clipper Round the World Yacht Race; and flight and air traffic control simulation experts, The Quadrant Group.
Shaftesbury based Virginia Hayward, approaching their 30th anniversary, cited Salad’s expertise, track record for building brands and level of understanding of market positioning across a wide range of business sectors as the key reasons for working with them.
Initially tasked with rebranding the business, Salad’s attention then focused on the design of their most important marketing investment of the year – the Virginia Hayward Christmas Hamper brochure which is now available on their website, virginiahayward.com.
Sharing the strong desire to push boundaries and deliver a truly effective digital experience, Salad set out to create a website for the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race; the record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht. Salad were tasked with creating a website that would showcase the sheer awesomeness of the race, provide a smooth and smart application process and deliver vital information to crew, fans and sponsors, in an ultimately engaging way.
Following on from this success, the third client win for Salad has been The Quadrant Group. The Group owns four businesses, including locally based Micro Nav, and offers a range of aviation simulation and training services. Quadrant were looking for a design company who could completely reposition and re-brand the group, ensuring a consistent message across all their markets. Salad were appointed after impressing Quadrant with their understanding of the business and the brief, as well as the refreshingly practical approach taken to develop outstanding ideas.
James Lattimer, Director at Salad Creative, says: “We have had a very strong year, and these recent client wins have led to a recruitment surge here at Salad. Finding outstanding talent is challenging, but thankfully our reputation has attracted the right people to help support our growing client list.
“We’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the agency to approach for delivering high quality design and digital projects, underpinned by sound commercial thinking. We also know how to make a budget work hard for us – we understand that our client’s need the reassurance that their marketing spend is in safe hands and that their return on investment will help improve their business position.”
Terri Clarke, Brand Marketing Manager from Clipper Ventures, says: “Salad Creative went all out to deliver our dynamic website meeting an extremely tight deadline. We have had a great experience; the process from conceptualisation, design and build has been well managed and the team creative and supportive in their approach.
“We count ourselves to lucky to have found a talented team that is hard working, professional and passionate about what they do. The website in a new era for the Clipper Race delivering a great experience for crew, fans and sponsors. Although this is just the beginning as we continue to develop the site with Salad Creative over the next four years.”
