At work or at play, it's always busy at Pages Creative

Work in progress

It’s work experience season at Pages Creative, with two students getting the chance to spend time learning about our business this summer. Writing, proofreading, headlines, concept artwork, design and digital development, you name it, we give them the chance to try it. Plus, they get to learn how to make a decent cuppa too!

Close working

We continue to support and develop work with Wales & West Utilities, successfully designing and producing its annual stakeholder submission for Ofgem

Blooming brilliant

We’re full of springtime spirit, as we’re very lucky to have a view of the cherry blossom from the Pages Creative office. As well as being busy bees with ongoing projects, we have many new exciting projects blooming… watch this space!

Donation goes to a good cause

We enjoyed putting these Christmas shoebox donations together – and we’re hoping the children receiving them will enjoy them too. The toys, games and chocolates will go to underprivileged children across the north west.

The Hive shines

We picked up an Award of Excellence at the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) Awards this year for Hoist Finance UK’s The Hive magazine. The event at Park Lane, London was a great way to celebrate the hard work that goes into the popular employee magazine.

Million milestone

We reached a milestone with sales event business The Value For Money Company (VFM), exceeding one million tickets for its Christmas and Home & Gift Fairs. We’ve been designing and producing tickets for VFM’s national retail events for more than 17 years.

Footie fundraising

We had a ball in our latest project with ITV, when they were looking for a way to encourage colleagues to take part in their internal fundraising week for Soccer Aid. We came up with a 3D football and supporting card to get the ball rolling. Find out how we tackled the project here

Hive five…

We’re pleased to be in the running for an Institute of Internal Communication award. The Hive, which we produce for Hoist Finance, has been shortlisted for an award in the “best new or relaunched publication (print)” class. The winner will be announced on 28 September at the awards dinner in London.

Great experience

We love welcoming work experience students to see what goes on behind the scenes at our office. Annie, who joined us for a week, developed her own website to showcase her art and design work. Our team were happy to help from concept and marketing content, to logo and web design. “I’m immensely grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group!” says Annie.

At the double

May was a busy month for us as we helped Wales & West Utilities produce two key reports, the Discretionary Reward Scheme (DRS) and Stakeholder Engagement Incentive Submission (SEIS), to a very tight deadline. Both were successfully published, digitally and in print.
