ADS Creative involved in rebranding of Multinational industry leader

ADS Creative are delighted to be involved in the rebranding of one of our mainstay clients, Pipeline Engineering, following their takeover by American giant Circor International Inc. The takeover could well have spelt the end of a long and fruitful relationship between Pipeline Engineering, who supply pigging products and services to the pipeline industry across the globe, and ADS Creative. However, Circor management recognised the value of the local supply network and the trust built up between businesses over years of working together. As such ADS Creative have now begun work on rebranding a wide range of promotional material such as brochures, stationery and exhibition material for Pipeline Engineering.

ADS help Darlington Housing Association celebrate 35 Years

This year saw new client Darlington Housing Association celebrating 35 years of providing services to their tenants and, as part of that celebration, asked ADS Creative to come up with something comemorative for their ‘family’ of tenants. With a modest budget, DHA management were initially skeptical about whether they would be able to provide anything beyond a personalised pen for their loyal tenants. But with the expert guidance of the team at ADS Creative (not to mention 40 years of working closely with companies who supply all manner of corporate and personalised gifts), we were soon able to provide a complete gift pack with stickers, mug, pen and fridge magnet, all within budget and all delivered in time for Christmas.

Bruce Wilkie of ADS Creative, who personally delivered the last of the gift packs to the client, was delighted with the outcome saying “It’s easy to dismiss small, low budget jobs like this one. But with a little effort and a lot of experience we’ve shown that we can make a big difference to our clients. Was really rewarding to see how delighted they were when we arrived with the finished packs. And they’re already getting some really positive feedback from their tenants, which is great.”
