Creative thinking in trying times

Creative design agency, Cole AD, are based in Glasgow and work with many clients in the housing sector. This summer saw their rebrand and website launch for Southside Housing Association which has been very well received winning leading to new project wins along the way for this company.

Stephen Cole is their managing director: “Keeping a positive outlook has been key as we’re all working from home and cannot all be together in our Studio. It’s important to share the wins and good client feedback with our team on Zoom.”

A few of these success stories have included:

  • Accountancy firm, Wylie & Bisset, who represent dozens of Scottish housing associations have appointed Cole AD to design and develop their new website to serve their clients online more efficiently.
  • The agency’s media buy strategies for Scottish Chamber Orchestra promoting online concerts since Summer have been met with great results including tremendous viewing numbers for the Nicola Benedetti performance.
  • Walker Wylie Estate Agents moved from online only to their first branch in Glasgow’s Westend having seen their business grow rapidly. Cole AD have been working as their creative partners designing their first location, website and marketing strategy.
  • Another rebrand & website design win was for Scottish Stammering Network. They worked with the trustees from this charity to create a stylish and accessible new website. Launching in time for International Stammering Awareness Day, the brand and website have been met with much praise. This culminated in charity chairman, James Stewart, being interviewed by the BBC.

Stephen Cole concluded: “It is about protecting jobs and thankfully we’re continuing to bring in new business, plus maintaining relationships with our current clients. We’re grateful that our team & our families have kept safe throughout the pandemic and that we’re still able to deliver excellent work.

“Tough times for us all, but must add a massive thanks to the key workers, NHS, shop staff & teachers across the country!”
