We are pleased to announce that Hansell Design and Marketing have won the Design Services tender for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Since 2006, when we designed the new identity we’ve been working closely with them. In that time we’ve produced campaigns to celebrate events in the town, raise education standards and encourage engagement with the public.
Our team love working with their marketing and communications department we’ve forged some very close links and have designed material for a vast variety of projects. Recently we designed a whole new identity for their leisure services department, linked with a brand new leisure centre – Becontree. We site visited when the location was just a muddy plot and worked to ensure the new brand worked throughout location; from clear wayfinding signage through to the staff uniforms.
It’s really nice to see our efforts rewarded by being awarded a tender win. This means that we can continue to provide Design Services throughout the borough. It’s a contract win that lasts for four years and we look forward to the exciting projects we can work on throughout that time.
