Far From the Crowds
Close to Our Clients
With The Visual Works, you get a rare combination – creative flair, business wisdom and digital knowhow.
So, with The Visual Works, you always benefit from great-looking design work.
You can also be sure that our solutions will meet the needs of your business.
And, with our own in-house technologists, we see straight through the smoke-and-mirrors that often gets in the way of effective marketing.
We specialise in three things
At the Visual Works our work revolves around three things – branding, brochures and websites.
Then, behind these three specialisms comes a real depth of related knowledge and experience. So, for example:
Often our in-house team has the credentials to work across the lot. But we also know what we don’t know (or don’t know enough about) – and often enlist the services of other like-minded specialists.
So, yes, we start with branding, brochures and websites. But we end up doing whatever it takes to benefit your business.
Here are some statistics for you
(and what we think they say about The Visual Works)
More than a third of our clients have been with us for more than a decade, and several date right back to day one (which suggests that, whatever we are doing, it works, and we care about long-term relationships)
Around half of our work is with locally-based businesses (which, if you know the Shropshire business scene, suggests that we deliver value for money, and our work delivers tangible business results – like more leads, more conversions, more flexibility and easier admin)
Around half of our work isn’t with locally-based businesses (which, if you know the Shropshire business scene, suggests that we maybe look and think a little further afield than many of our peers, and are happy to be judged against any criteria)
Almost a third of our business comes from other marketing, digital and PR agencies (which suggests that we are trusted by people who are ‘in the know’, we don’t jostle for position, and we know how to work as members of an extended team)
All of our business has something to do with our three areas of specialism – branding, brochures and websites. But often entails much more like photography, copywriting and the creation of video or rich media for digital marketing.
We launched The Visual Works before the DVD was invented, before the first Iphone launched and well before the internet had established itself as a world-wide phenomena. We’re experienced, creative, mature(ish) and we know, better than most, what will work and what wont.
Our very own technology – and technologists
It’s been said that The Visual Works can sometimes be a bit impatient.
And, early on in our story, we became very impatient with the way that websites were being built and managed. So, we created manageable – our very own content management system – and we keep on evolving it.
As web developers, it makes our work much easier. But it’s also much easier for clients to keep their websites up to date. And it has led us into the creation of several other web-based solutions – some of them quite unusual and unexpected.
Our clients tend to stay with us for a LONG time. And they often say lovely things about us, like...
"Always impressed with your quality of work, visual impact and strength of branding"
