The answer - US! Graphics & gardens are both part of our 'extraordinary' here at Image. Recently we've seen our expertise blending further as we take stock of the past year and allow ourselves a little time to reflect and refresh...including some rather smart new signage & graphics for our studios and van.
In case you're wondering how we ended up in client's back gardens after 30 + years of grand halls and exhibitions venues, let us catch you up.
Grand Halls to Gardens
In the midst of constant flux and a decided trend of both feast and famine for many industries, we've experienced significant change here at Image. Far from plain sailing, this time last year we were reeling from the loss of almost all of our event marketing and exhibitions work overnight in March 2020. At the that time we were searching for hope amongst our previous mainstay, graphics, signage, design...however with the nation on lockdown 1.0, and marketing budgets locked down too, the pickings were slim. As time went on we knew we needed to become even more creative in how we diversified, first this led to an offering of quality Covid management products, however longer term we needed something we knew could help us grow...
Searching for inspiration, what began as a conversation about modular homes and timber engineering in construction then became, Image Garden Rooms. Devising our own design, specification, manufacturing techniques and installation methods, we rapidly developed a new brand, supported by the same extraordinary design, service and quality we'd become renowned for. Here's where you might usually say '...and the rest is history', but it's definitely not! What began as a trickle in late 2020 has now become a regular flow of enquiries for our growing garden rooms business that is helping us recover our business in the wake of 2020. Needless to say, our team has been working hard to sow these seeds for Image Garden Rooms, but our design, graphics and display roots remain as strong as ever (we hope you're enjoying the extended garden metaphors by the way).
A sign of the times...
As restrictions gradually lift and businesses, events and venues re-open, we have seen interest return in our core design, graphics and display capabilities, as well as some longer term planning for events. Whilst we fully intend to sustain our garden rooms business, we are also reading the signs that gradually, clients are ready to get back to business (& eventually events). So if you're looking to grow awareness of your brand, refresh your premises or vehicles for reopening or discus a display for retail, hospitality or exhibitions, Image Display & Graphics remains ready to help you grow your business in any way you need...just as we have ours!
We'd like to extend a sincere thanks to all the clients, collaborators and suppliers who continue to support Image as we strive to keep you expecting extraordinary.
