HEMS DE WINTER CONSULTING
Using conversational imagery and copy to project an approachable personality online.
Hems is a former journalist and editor who founded the award-winning agency de Winter PR in 1989. For his new business consultancy website, Hems presented 4 pages of carefully considered copy which were very personal to him but he had no images or any other assets for us to use.
Hem's approachable nature is key to his success and we needed to convey this through his website. Arranging a shoot with Kat Hannon, a talented Chester photographer we work with closely, allowed us to convey this perfectly with a series of candid images of Hems at work. These images work well in monochrome to carry related text and serve as banners for each page - carefully briefed to Kat at the outset.
Bold orange sections mirror Hem's logo design and bring the site to life.
The result is an engaging website with lots of personality!
CHESTER VISUAL ARTS
Vibrant website for a not-for-profit arts organisation.
Chester Visual Arts’ mission is to bring a major contemporary art gallery to our home city of Chester. We first got to know each other when Veracity director Andy walked into their brilliant V&A Pop Art exhibition and immediately offered to help raise the organisation’s profile through film. Since that day, over two years ago, we’ve made a number of films and developed a beautiful, informative web site. CVA’s principles and aims are world class and our work had to reflect that. The site is used to reinforce CVA’s impressive credentials and capture the outstanding artists and art they continue to nurture and promote.
Portfolio site for a talented, entrepreneurial Art Director.
Alexa is rapidly establishing a reputation one of the leading film and TV art directors and props specialists in the UK. Manchester-based, she needed to showcase the variety and strength of her work in a web site aimed at top industry professionals.
We worked closely with her to develop a site that has enabled her to extend her reach far beyond her north-west client base. She now regularly gets enquiries from national and international film companies and commercial producers.
The website has also been instrumental in her breaking into art direction for theatre and live performance companies.
Introductory site for showhome design business
Professional photography and compelling copy, together with a systematic approach to SEO have helped bring new business opportunities to Create Showhomes. This is a client we take a special pride in as we even came up with the name of the business for company founder and CEO, Lynne Gibbons. The site introduces new developer clients to Lynne’s personal approach and range of services.
Inspirational site for inspirational documentary
Mental health advocate, mountaineer, endurance athlete, author and motivational speaker Alex Staniforth has achieved more in 23 years than most of us manage in a lifetime. We followed his progress on film for over two years and encapsulated what makes him a unique and inspirational role model for young people in an award-winning documentary. This is the web site of the film, bright, engaging, articulate and compelling – just like Alex himself.
Top rated international film site
Sea Wall is a unique project. We made a short film in 2012 with BAFTA winning actor Andrew Scott and Tony and Olivier award winning writer Simon Stephens. The film was acclaimed by critics on both sides of the Atlantic and has a loyal global fan base.
Sea Wall still has an astonishing rating of 8.4 on the industry standard IMDB popularity chart – 60% of users gave it 10/10, which pushed it to No.1 out of over 750,000 short films!
The web site is designed to introduce new people to the film and give fans plenty of “extras” to enjoy in the form of interviews and production insights.
Website portal enabling Directors to share internal comms films with staff.
Shortly after Veracity had produced the first Sibelco internal update film we got a call from one of their Directors. How could they best share the video with their staff?
We swiftly set about designing and building a password protected website portal that could be shared internally. All website visits and video views could be tracked, giving Sibelco measurable results.
Staff were able to view the update films when and where it was convenient for them - on both desktop or mobile devices, in the office, out on site or at home.
The portal was designed to mirror their existing internal communications style and branding.
A property site that’s close to home
Veracity is based in the recently redeveloped ground floor and basement of a beautiful Grade 2 listed Georgian house in central Chester. The top two floors are apartments. Research revealed that in 1845 the Mayor of Chester lived here, so the building has been rebranded “The Mayor’s House”.
The web site offers tours of the apartments and the local area for potential tenants. Photography by Kat Hannon enhances every page and the style of the site echoes that of the building – elegant, hand crafted and very much in keeping with its surroundings.
