As ever, 2017 has seen a great range of projects cross our desks. From design, web development and content to fully-outsourced marketing projects, we’ve been busy producing work to a fantastic standard for local, national and international clients.
We’re really proud of everything we do, but here are a few of our highlights from the year so you can see what we’ve been up to!
New to the office this week is this little gadget – a Colourimeter.
We often find that the same colours can display slightly differently across multiple screens depending on the amount of light being absorbed. For example, a shade of pink that we use in a design may appear as a completely different colour to you when viewed on a different monitor.
Intellectual Property is the name given to something that is unique to your business. Here at CRE8, that’s our strapline -Your Marketing Goodguys®- and our logo. Our strapline truly defines our business; we are friendly, trusted professionals, and all-round ‘good guys’. This is how we want to be identified, and so we chose to have the phrase trademarked. Now, it’s exclusive to us, and only us!
On 10th March, Paul and I attended Ed_tec Live 2016, hosted at Wigan’s DW Stadium by school IT specialists ABtec Computers. We were delighted to be asked along; ABtec know that we work with many local schools and this was a good opportunity to touch base both with our existing clients and those who haven’t met us yet.
Last year, we applied to register Your Marketing Goodguys® as a trade mark. The registration has now been granted, ensuring that the strapline Your Marketing Goodguys® can only be used by us in promoting our services.
But what does it mean and why did we do it? Moreover, why should you protect YOUR intellectual property rights? Let us explain…
Lauren and Vicki had a great day at Wigan Business Expo on Friday, although our feet are only just recovering. After an early start (we both have young children, we should really be used to them…) we arrived bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 7.30am ready to meet fellow Wigan and Leigh businesses and spread the CRE8 word.
As the signs are torn down, I reflect on Blockbuster’s business, and it’s demise.
Blockbuster Rentals went into liquidation twice in twelve months after many years of successful trading. The store under our offices was a ‘green’ store apparently, meaning it made a good profit, however many other stores were struggling.
