We were first approached by Crystal Interactive to deliver a full exhibition stand and supporting pop up banners within a very tight time schedule and to maximise their presence at Confex, the UK's leading event for organisers of both national and international events.
We tapped into our extensive experience of designing conference materials, to advise on style and content and ultimately developed an impactful stand design.
Having risen to the initial challenge, Crystal expanded the scope of our relationship to include our broader involvement in several areas of marketing strategy and design. We were asked to develop and implement a strategic marketing plan following Crystal's acquisition of IML from Lumi in January 2017.
Planning and running a series of stakeholder workshops enabled us to utilise the combined knowledge and existing equity within the newly merged company, to develop a unified plan for its vision and values. By early involvement of the wider team we were able to achieve full team buy-in, in order to ensure a smooth roll out of the strategy moving forward.
To mark the significant changes within the evolving company, Crystal briefed us to work on the development of their logo. This concluded with a complete re-design of the logo, along with a new colour palette, type face and brand guidelines. These were then rolled out onto the full spectrum of stationery products, including letterheads, business cards, compliment slips and pens, branding equipment, t-shirts and external signage for their new office.
To complete the re-branding process, we designed, created and launched a new website in line with the new company values and strategy. In addition to the above, we are also developing and implementing a monthly PR and communications programme.
"As a leader in a relatively niche market, finding an agency that could quickly understand our business, positioning and vision was crucial to us. In Mzuri we found a partner that was able to do exactly that, and advise and deliver on many aspects of marketing support we needed – from exhibition stand design through to re-branding and PR activities. Our new brand identity and website has been a huge success with staff and clients alike and we will continue to rely on Mzuri as our trusted agency partner. They are quite a nice bunch too!"
