We spend a lot of time with young people helping them to see what a career in branding and marketing could offer. We have given talks, offer work experience and take on interns to help broaden horizons and give opportunities to aspiring designers to enable them to live agency life first-hand.
Peek loves helping others
We are focused on everyone benefiting from a good work-life balance and we’re currently working towards the Investors in People accreditation for our investment in developing and retaining the best people.
We also take an active part in our community. You might have bumped into us on a magical moonlight walk or seen us zip wiring through the forest to raise funds for local causes.
We have been actively involved with local children’s charity Have a Heart since 2002. The charity provides grants to disadvantaged young people in our communities. This year Have a Heart is focusing on building a better future for the children living in our communities, those who are vulnerable, face adversity, live with an illness or are deprived of the childhood that every child deserves.
Over the last ten years over £340,000 has been raised and distributed to community projects ranging from the purchase of minibuses for the disabled to funding play equipment for disadvantaged children.
Every year we offer an amount of pro bono work so if our business can help your charity then please get in touch.
At this initial stage we establish your needs and gain a clear understanding of the objectives of the project. We then identify the project teams, roles and responsibilities. Which is then followed by us defining the process that you’d like to use to manage the project. Our proposal is submitted to meet your requirements and covers project scope, objectives, budget, deliverables and terms and conditions.
Included in this stage are activities such as conducting research to learn about your audiences and specific markets, analysis of the competitive landscape, understanding key messages and auditing any current marketing material. This stage is about learning as much as possible prior to design to enable us to identify the creative strategy and produce the design brief.
This stage involves exploring different approaches, refining a variety of design directions and presenting our recommended route. We then evaluate this route with you to check that it is fulfilling the project objectives. The approach is then applied to the various deliverables and we define the details prior to moving in to production.
At this stage we produce and manage the production of all the deliverables for the project. We collaborate with the writers, photographers, programmers and printers needed. This is an important stage of the project as it is the last opportunity to make any adjustments to the work. It involves us liaising with you to sign-off the work that is being produced.
We like to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our work. This can be done both formally and informally to understand if the objectives we set at the outset are being met.
