    Publications with Impact

    Thursday, May 03, 2012

    Having originated the Society brand identity in 2009 and subsequently their inaugural corporate literature and website homepage, we were called in once again when the socially-aware recruitment firm required tailored publications for its growing reach and specialist services.

    As per their tagline, 'make an impact', their two new corporate booklets had to be on-brand, striking and impactful. Providing us with the straight copy, Society allow us creative license to interpret their content in layout, visuals and image-sourcing to best convey their message and ethos.

    We're delighted to report that Society are thrilled with their new booklets – as are we!

    It's always exciting to work with a brand that 'thinks outside the box', and we're sure the resulting materials will continue to set Society apart as a leader in the world of recruitment and executive search.

    DIY .docs for YCI

    The Youth Career Initiative, a programme of the International Business Leaders Forum, is a long-standing client of Bungalow Industries and it's always a pleasure to help them out with their ongoing documentation and materials.

    As part of their closer integration with IBLF, and the expansion of their youth education programmes into new territories, they have a growing need to manage their suite of smart, designed documents in-house. From their programme overviews to full course curricula, having truly 'working' documents is increasingly important – not just for ongoing updates but also for regional localisation and translation.

    It was our pleasure to not only begin a refresh of their collateral, but to go a step further and convert the designed documents from our workhorse application, InDesign, into… deep breath… Microsoft Word.

    Converting documents from Adobe Indesign to Microsoft Word

    No mean feat, as any of you with experience in creating professional looking layouts in Word will agree… but ever-focused on our client's outcome we sallied forth with margins, columns, text boxes, tabs, tables, shapes, styles and page formats to achieve our end – and checking they displayed correctly on the team's PCs from London to Brazil and beyond.

    YCI are full steam ahead in deploying these documents whose implementation came at a great juncture: the tourism-based life-skills programme is about to roll out across hotels in India!

    Well done! I very much appreciate your attention to detail, your technical skills, creativity and above all your patience!

    YCI, London

    Wow! It looks fantastic, congratulations for making this possible! I am sure our partners will also appreciate it! Greetings from Mexico!

    Brilliant news, and we wish them every success in their continuing, youth-empowering work.

    Good Work For All - It's Business in the Community

    Friday, October 29, 2010

    Business in the Community, one of HRH The Prince of Wales' charities, commissioned Bungalow to design two publications for their latest initiative in CSR: Work Inclusion - best business practices that support those furthest from the labour market to build successful working lives.

    Previously having designed large technical publications for HRH's International Business Leaders' Forum, BITC were confident in giving us creative license to produce their 80-page Toolkit and its 8-page Executive Summary on-brand, on budget, and on time.

    Business In The Community - BITC BITC Work Inclusion Toolkit and Executive Summary

    Designed to present and clearly communicate the business case, social case, steps involved plus case studies from leading proponents including Marks & Spencer and Royal Mail, the resultant Toolkit is a unique and keystone publication. It's a practical guide to developing a Work Inclusion initiative as a strategic part of talent management, recruitment, staff retention or corporate responsibility.

    BITC are thrilled with the result, valuing our approach, interpretation and attention to detail in creating a user-friendly and easily navigable publication - and we're delighted to have been able to assist in this landmark campaign.

    Whilst registration is required to access the online Toolkit itself, the Executive Summary is available to download from BITC's website here.
