Brand Guidelines

Corporate literature boxed set

Following Fathom’s design and development of the Balfour Beatty Capital brand, a prestigious boxed set of corporate literature was created for distribution to senior management staff at the annual management conference. This collection is developed and expanded with new publications on an ongoing basis.

Development of branding and communications programme

Project: We were asked to develop the client’s branding and corporate communications programme. The brief required that the branding reflected some elements of Balfour Beatty Group’s corporate branding while at the same time enabling Balfour Beatty Capital to differentiate itself from the group.

Objectives: In further discussions it emerged that each project that the client was operating or bidding for was being given its own identity. It was obvious that this was a confusing way of organising the company’s branding and a rationalisation of the branding was recommended. We also helped the client to develop key messages and content throughout the communications programme.

Method: Develop branding for parent company. Create a set of literature including HR, CSR and Our Projects brochures.

Consort Healthcare exhibition

Project: Design, develop and deliver exhibition stand for Consort Healthcare in 2 week time frame. Required to support NHS Conference at Harrogate International Centre.

Imagine conference pack and direct mail

The client required a direct mail piece to assist in the global launch of its Imagine database, an online resource showcasing innovative and leading edge practices in education design.
