As an award-winning branding and digital agency, it’s only right that Trust has a brand new look!
Since MD Stuart Bradley and Creative Director Carl Sadd set up Trust in 2011 the agency has grown beyond their admittedly ambitious expectations. Starting off as two disillusioned creatives, they’ve pushed forward as the ‘antidote to agency-life’ seeing their team blossom and grow to now include nine full-time team members. This team is supported by a cast of brilliantly talented and trusted perma-lancers. And there’s plans for more key hires in 2019.
Starting life as a bedroom project, Trust has moved to bigger office space office four times in 7 years to finally find its home in a refurbished mill in Stockport. From this amazing light, inspiring, industrious space Trust provides branding services for global organisations such as Pioneer DJ, Manchester Airports Group, and University of Manchester.
Gemma McCall, Relationship Director commented on why the time was right for a refresh, “We looked at our old brand mark and website, and realised it didn’t reflect the breadth of our offering any more. Lots has changed and as a branding agency it’s easy to focus on doing amazing work for clients and to neglect keeping your own house in order, but it’s actually really important that we look like the agency we are.”
Carl explained the thinking behind the new modular T brand mark, “We wanted to create a versatile brand mark, one that helped us stand out from other agencies and that we can have fun with. The new ’T’ that we settled on gives us a graphic device that we can use in lots of different ways. I’m really excited to see where it takes us. If it’s as successful as our last brand identity, we’re in for another exciting few years.”
Trust builds brands based on values, so the new website will see their values of Love & Trust at the fore. Stuart said, “Before we take on any project we make sure we understand the customer’s vision, mission and values. Our values of Love & Trust underpin everything we do, so we wanted to make sure they were brought to life on our website. Love means we do work that we love, with people that we love working with. And Trust is more than our name, it’s our rudder, we trust each other like crazy and we build long-term relationships with our clients based on honesty and respect.”
Trust clearly believe in doing things differently. From how they look after their team, to how they nurture long-term working relationships, and now how they look.
