In order to develop a comprehensive campaign for our clients, we like to fully understand their business. This means we get to learn about all manner of industries, some more complex than others.
Renewable Energy Agency offered us a challenge, the clean technology markets are certainly not something that any of our team had researched before. But hey, we enjoy tackling new tasks and relished the opportunity to better understand this fascinating and rapidly expanding market.
When Deepak Sareen – co-owner of Mayfair based REA – contacted us to discuss his requirements, our interests were immediately piqued. A full branding exercise to compliment a shiny new print and digital campaign. Just the sort of thing we love to get our teeth into!
A Simple and Creative Identity
Our creative team developed a stylish and understated corporate identity which effectively represents the clean and continuous benefits of renewable energy. We selected fresh natural colours to compliment the infinity symbol, which we hope speaks for itself, an ongoing source of energy. This simple and understated branding runs throughout the company’s printed literature, from business cards to letterheads, and is carefully utilised throughout the new website.
A Modern, Stylish and Easy to Use Website
Our digital team provided REA with a bespoke, editable website that allows them to update their news feed with relevant stories and articles. Here they can add images and company news with ease. This allows them to keep their customers, associates and potential clients up-to-date. It also allows them to keep their web presence fresh and ever-changing.
The website also benefits from a responsive design that adapts to browser size and an additional mobile device template so that REA’s potential customers can find out about their services at any time, even when they are on the move.
Web Friendly Copy
Our marketing department provided thorough research and search engine friendly content to populate the new website. This gives the site a professional and considered feel. You can take a look at the website here.

Bespoke website for Trusted Nannies, a unique UK business in the childcare sector.
View the site here.
This week saw the launch of our latest website, trustednannies.co.uk. Trusted Nannies is a unique UK business that allows professional and experienced child carers to find employment with suitable families, as well as, vice versa, allowing families to search for suitable childcare.
We developed a bespoke system which allows both parties to utilise the website to create a profile. Background and identity checks are undertaken on registration making the whole process safe, easy and secure. This unique automation effectively cuts out ‘middle man’ agencies saving the websites users a great deal of time and expense.
“Trusted Nannies is the UK’s first childcare website to only accept childcare providers who are qualified and/or experienced – we also verify all our nannies with a background check when the individual registers.
Our nannies’ safety and security is also of utmost importance, so we background check all our parents, too.
By carrying out these checks we strive to provide parents with the best childcare providers the industry has to offer, making choosing childcare that little bit easier.”
– Trusted Nannies Blog
The ADOmedia design team created a branding and style that is friendly, clean and colourful. Each page and function is easy to navigate and simple to use, with a pared down and modern feel. The simple colour coded areas of the website allows visitors and clients to quickly source required information and details.
Trusted Nannies are now able to keep their customers and potential clients up-to-date with a simple newsletter sign up function and quick links to their blog and social media feeds.
The Trusted Nannies service looks set to become extremely prominent within it’s field. The strong company image and digital tools that they now have at their disposal will allow for quick substantial growth, something we certainly predict for this fantastic new business.
It’s that time of year again. The cold, dark nights have taken hold and Christmas is upon us. It’s almost time for us to shut down our computers, lock up the studio and head home for a well deserved break.
This week the ADOsquad have been diligently working away to ensure that all work is wrapped up and that our clients and their businesses are prepared for the festive break.
It’s been busy. We’ve worked our way through a fair few mince pies and the studio has been filled with festive music. Some of which was provided by our good friend, the Manchester based artist Kamal Arafa, who, along with some talented musician friends, has written and recorded a fantastically festive song “It’s Christmas Time Again”! We were lucky enough to be one of only 50 recipients to receive a free copy (ours was #11). You can have a listen to it here.
Kamal also designed the cover artwork. Do you like his style? He also designs t-shirts, have a look and buy one of them here via his online store. So thanks to Kamal (and said mince pies) we are feeling well and truly in the festive mood.
We will be in the studio until Friday afternoon and we will be locking the doors until our return to work on the 7th January 2013. However, Steve will be available via email (email@example.com) for any problems or enquiries you may have over the holidays. But do remember, poor Steve needs a holiday too, so please keep it only to urgent enquiries where possible!
It’s been a very busy year for us, and the new year looks set to be our busiest yet! We are all looking forward to a fresh start in January when we will be rolling out some exciting new plans.
We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic new year.
Kitchen Crafts and Furniture this year celebrate 40 successful years in business. A brand new website has brought them up to date.
Bespoke, quality craftsmanship is something that we love to see. In this generation of quick, cheap and ready made, a company that crafts beautiful specialist items really stands apart. Although in a less physical, and more digital sense, we like to think that our company ethos is very similar to that of Kitchen Crafts and Furniture. This fact alone made creating their brand new website an absolute joy.
As well as offering a stylish point of contact and online portfolio, the new website allows the team at Kitchen Crafts and Furniture to easily update their customers and potential clients with recent projects and promotions.
You can view the brand new website here.
We were recently approached by the proprietors of a new venture in Hoxton, East London, to produce a holding page for the new bar and restaurant Beagle.
Everyone in the studio at ADOtowers loves great food and drink. We also love quirky locations and stylish design, so this is the sort of project that we really like to get our… er… teeth into!
The venue will be spread over three of the recently restored Hoxton railway arches in one of East London’s trendiest areas.
We can’t wait until March next year to pay it a visit! Check out the simple holding page we have created in readiness for the full site launch here. Logo and Branding designed by Olivia French.
Our most recent project took us back. Back to the days when the freedom of driving seemed like a distant dream. Of course, many years have passed since then, but we haven’t forgotten the long winded, painful challenge that is learning to drive.
Pass Your Test Fast does exactly what it says on the tin. Those looking to find the best possible driving tuition to help them get motoring in a realistic yet succinct time frame should take a look.
We created a website to allow the Pass Your Test Fast team to not only promote their comprehensive range of services but also to allow their clients to peruse prices and book their course online.
We researched, devised and sourced their domain name, developed their new logo and branding and built a website which looks great across all devices. This is perfect for their younger target demographic, who tend to browse on mobile phones and devices.
This market, like many others, is likely to respond well to a social media marketing campaign. We have set the company up with a brand new Facebook page and Twitter feed which can be updated with all of their latest company news, events and information and direct potential clients to their website.
For the design, we selected a bold red colour and iconic logo that is punchy, memorable and effective across their printed literature and vehicle livery designs.
Take a look around the new website here.
If you are looking for a website to promote your business, give us a call. From simple, well designed promotional pages to full membership systems, online payment facilities, group forums, e-commerce platforms and fully editable systems, we can offer the complete package and find the best possible solution for your company.
We have been searching for a new conference table for our meeting room. This one seems to have generated some excitment in the studio. What do you think?
In everyday life, we are constantly bombarded with advertisements. From the minute we open our eyes in the morning we are surrounded by branding. As such, we have all developed techniques to block out aggressive marketing and subconsciously ignore anything that does not instantly appeal.
Clever agencies have realised that it takes more than a flashy print ad or billboard to catch our cynical eyes and capture our ever diminishing attention. It takes a lot to impress us these days and campaigns lacking in innovation no longer cut the mustard.
The most astute marketing agencies have devised campaigns which utilise our surroundings in ingenious ways to amuse and inspire us. This is the key to earning our valuable attention. Here is a selection of our favourite recent examples-
Well here we are, 2012 already and the first blog of the year. I don’t know about you but I for one was pretty sure we would be in the future by now, you know, hover boards, silver suits and the like. Still, certain aspects of those futuristic movies from childhood are very much upon us and here at ADOtowers, we love getting to know all about them and how to utilise them for our clients and ourselves. This year looks set to be another great one and we have some very interesting projects and exciting developments lined up. We will of course divulge more details and keep you up to date with our futuristic new plans over the coming weeks (we like to keep you on your toes y’know).
To kick off the new year we also have a brand spanking new member of the team. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Mr Steve Taylor! our fresh faced new recruit and ADOmedia’s very own business development manager. He’s settling in very well at the towers, making himself at home and helping us to take care of our clients, new and existing. We can’t have the standards slipping now can we? So please be friendly and if you see him about the towers just give him a little wave.
So no silver suits as yet I’m afraid but the new year is a great excuse to have a fresh start. Like almost everyone else, here at ADOmedia we are thinking about clearing out the cupboards, chucking out those old Christmas biscuits and replacing them with something fresher. We’re limbering up, dusting down and generally trying to get a bit better looking, healthier and more productive for the new year. But enough about our beauty routines, we are also taking a fresh approach to business.
Many potential clients and customers will be looking to shake things up a bit and get things moving. Are you ready for it? Why not take a look at your own marketing campaign? If your web presence is looking a little ‘last year’ or your web marketing campaign has been pushed to the back of the cupboard, give us a bell. We are happy to help out with new ideas and we are always available to offer advice on your next step.
Now really is the time to get things moving. Be it updating your existing web site for a something a little racier, a little more “twenty twelve” or putting your back into promoting your existing website, pushing it up the search engines and building your client base, we are, as always, here to help.
Why not give us a call, say hi to Steve and get things moving? Lets see what we can do this year…

ADOmedia have just launched a fun and colourful website for Cheshire YFC. We were approached to create the new online presence as the federation felt that it was time for them to allow their members to be able to keep up to date with all the latest events going on in and around Cheshire in the farming community. The site also allows them to update their latest news and info from the Federation, host numerous galleries from past events, allow for Cheshire YFC to spread the word about their organistation and attract new members from around the local area.
The results have been very promising so far with numerous enquiries already coming in from interested potential new members.

ADOmedia have just launched the website for the newly refurbished B&B Cotesfield Farm. The beautiful working farm was recently taken over by the Morrison family and offers a warm countryside welcome to all who stay. They approached us after seeing the great work that we have undertaken in the past with 20 Albany Street and Harrop Fold Farm and the end result has been received very well by their prospective clients.
From the logo design, the external signage, the website and the printed literature and stationery, and the photography shoot ADOmedia carried out the full caboodle!

The new site focuses on the events wing of their business and allows visitors to easily view and book places on the many courses, training seminars and conferences that they organise.

ADOmedia, working in conjunction with ABK Performance Sports Ltd, have just designed, built and launched the massive new website for PowerPlay Golf®. The site went live yesterday at 2.00pm sharp with a live stream of a video conference introducing PowerPlay Golf® to the world stage… hosted by non other than Peter McEvoy, Colin Montgomerie and Paul Casey (they are pretty famous golfers to the uninitiated)!
PowerPlay Golf® is a 9-hole format in which golfers choose to aim for one of two flags on the green – a White Flag and a Black (‘PowerPlay’) Flag. Players have limited PowerPlays, and score extra points for net birdies or better when playing to the Black (or ‘PowerPlay’) Flag, thereby creating extra pressure. On the PowerPlay Golf® web site golfers can register to earn PowerPlay Dollars, enabling them to climb the PPG World Rankings and compete in user-generated PowerPlay Golf® Leagues both locally and around the world. PowerPlay Golf’s format is ideal for TV, creating a complete golf tournament in under three hours. Broadcasters can televise golf in a more compressed time-frame, and increase golfing TV audiences.
So, all good news for golfers everywhere!
You can view the PowerPlay Golf® website here – www.powerplay-golf.com
ADOmedia have just launched the brilliant new website for London based DJ duo and promoters krankbrother. Having attended a number of their parties over the last year it was a honour to be asked to get involved with the project… they really do throw brilliantly original nights! The guys play a mix of Berlin-esque deep house and techno and have a ever growing roster of unbelievable big names from the scene playing sets at each party: Ivan Smaghhe, Dyed Soundorom, Lee Curtiss, Nic Fanciulli, Italoboyz, Namito and Martin Landsky are just a few that spring to mind!
The site design follows their musical style – minimal and low fi! The end result is a visually appealing site with ultra slick navigation and a limited colour palette to bring the full attention of the viewer to the event flyers.
It’s finally here! After a few months of development ADOmedia have finally launched Macc Music. The aim of the website is to allow the local community of Macclesfield to be able to see what is going on on the gigging front, view and write reviews of acts they have seen and generally keep up to date with all the happenings on the music scene. With no bias towards any particular genre we hope that the site will become the areas number one portal for the music community, and, best of all – it is FREE to use!
You can view the site here – www.macc-music.co.uk. Remember, we need all of your help to really make this work! Start adding your own gig listings, reviews and classified adverts now!

Does your business have a van or other vehicle that is used to transport and deliver your products on a regular basis? If the answer is a yes then you should look into getting your branding and a call to action emblazoned onto it.
How else would you get / afford to have a free billboard roaming your locality clearly displaying your businesses brand and contact details? In short, having a vehicle livery is the most cost effective means of advertising that is available.
Here at ADOmedia we have many years experience in this field. Call us today if you want to find out more about how we can help you get a vehicle livery applied to your van, car or motorbike on 01625 612 198. At the end of the day, like all advertising, only a well thought out application will get you the sales off the back of it. A poor vehicle livery will merely put people off your products or services!
