We often hear the question, isn’t having all your eggs in one basket a bad thing? Nettl of Birmingham’s biggest client couldn’t disagree more.
Southside Business District is a group, run for the advancement of local businesses in the city. Southside has worked with Nettl of Birmingham for many years. Their projects have varied across all medias and platforms. Visual identity is paramount to success in the local area and making them instantly recognisable to the businesses that rely on them.
Southside needed their brand to remain consistent. Consideration for the colour palettes, fonts, and logo spread across many different design agencies was making this hard. The difference between not only designers but also house styles in different studios meant consistency was hard to achieve.
Julia from Southside commented “We work fast and with agility. Often we’re reacting to micro and local changes in the market. We need to get a particular message out quickly and accurately. Whether this is a new website, leaflet or event advertising campaign. Spreading the load was making keeping track of all our marketing almost of a full-time position in itself.”
Simplify to save
Southside moved to make things simpler by implementing an all-in-one solution that could allow them to concentrate on their own day to day .
Julia continues “Because there was so much time wasted going back and forth between the different agencies who dealt with all the different medias. We knew a change was required. We wanted a marketing team able to do it all, meaning our digital assets are together. Most of all keeping our costs down and saving us time. Cut out the toing and froing from one company to another. This keeps the consistency the number one goal”.
A successful brand and consistent message help them to showcase the professionalism of their offering and allow them to concentrate on their clients more.
“Furthermore, we expect and received excellent service when everything is all under one roof. The service and personal attention received for the various items of work we have produced are excellent. In conclusion, I would highly recommend that anyone having issues with consistency or time delays with their marketing spread out over many agencies look to this kind of simplification”.
