Getting creative when budgets are tight

After a busy first half of 2023, I would like to thank all our existing clients for their loyalty and offer a warm welcome to the ones who have joined us recently.

Rising prices are affecting all of us, as individuals and as companies facing ever increasing costs. These economic headwinds can put pressure on communications and marketing budgets. However, communicating with stakeholders is more important than ever when times get tough – particularly for charities and ethical organisations whose audiences need reassurance that they are still there for them. 

Storytelling is key to delivering your most important messages and good graphic design can strengthen your narrative and increase engagement. As you look to deliver your content across multiple digital and print platforms, impactful design will help your organisation stay relevant and distinct. As always, nim design is ready to be agile and collaborative to get the best outcomes for your budget.

I remain passionate about supporting our clients with effective design and I am proud that our collaborations with so many global, national and local organisations contribute to their positive impact on society. I want to share some of our designs below:

Commonwealth Foundation Annual Report 2022-23

We were delighted to work again with the Commonwealth Foundation on its flagship annual report. The Foundation promotes the Commonwealth as an association of peoples, as well as governments. We are proud of the result, which is visually compelling, easy to navigate and a bold reflection of the amazing people and nations that make up the Commonwealth.

Citizens Advice Impact Report 2021-22

As people face increasing hardship, call rates to Citizens Advice are breaking records. Its work is more important than ever and we felt the weight of this responsibility in designing its latest impact report. We have taken a bold, dynamic graphic approach and optimised the design for screens so that readers can easily navigate it through interactive links to the information they need.

Vanguard Learning Trust Annual Dividend Report 2021-22

We enjoyed working with the Vanguard Learning Trust to show how the partnership of several schools across northwest London has provided outstanding, inclusive education through a collective responsibility. The goal of this Annual Dividend Report was to provide an overview of the Trust’s progress since it was formed in 2018.

Our clients understand that graphic design plays a vital role in effective communications and they will be keeping us busy in the coming months. Please visit our website again, as we will be showcasing some more new works soon. Enjoy summer, keep well and I look forward to connecting with you all again before the year ends.
