We guarantee a collaborative approach



iconBrandingIdentity

• Branding and identity

Branding is essential to a product or business. Executed well, it’s a guiding light for consumers and customers and helps to form valuable perceptions that will continue to resonate for years to come. Just think of the household name products, companies and organisations we can identify by simply recalling their branding? It’s a crucial element and can become your most valuable asset. Getting it spot on is the work of the designers. Our team creates brand marks, including logos, literature, promotional materials, digital assets and websites.

iconCampaignCreative

• Campaign creative

Our designers create the look and feel of new campaigns, using either new or pre-existing branding. This can be stand-alone visuals and messaging, which compliments an existing brand or an advertising promotion. They also add the design element to campaigns to promote a significant company event or anniversary, or to launch a new product or service.  These often include print design, web design and branding.

iconBrochure

• Print design and marketing literature

If it can be printed, we can design it – brochures, leaflets, flyers, posters, annual reports, newsletters, magazines, promotional materials, the list is extensive. Just get in touch and we’ll happily accommodate your requirements.

iconPackaging

• Packaging and point of sale

Our creative team is highly experienced in packaging design, from single to full product ranges across a wide range of sectors and industries including pharmaceuticals. These include cartons, bottles, blister packs, in fact any type of packaging you can think of. From point-of-sale branding to leaflet dispensers, shelf talkers and counter displays we specialise in hard working POS materials from initial concept through to design.

iconVideo

• Video

If you want your image to move you’ve come to the right place. And it all starts with our designers. They initially create concepts and storyboards for client projects before the filming and stock footage process begins. Our video production and motion graphics services include:

  • Annual Report Videos
  • Promotional Videos
  • Motion Graphics Videos
  • Training Videos
  • Product Focussed Videos
iconCamera

Our designers are heavily involved in this creative process whether it’s individual products shots or designing room sets for lifestyle imagery.





Design






Our process

Insight and understanding

We analyse the in-house team brief, assessing what you want to achieve, researching style guides and fully understanding a client’s likes and dislikes.

Clarify the challenge(s)

We begin to interpret the brief on a deeper level, identifying the campaign or project goals and objectives which need to be meet through the design

Ideation

Once we’ve established the firm creativity and have a solid understanding of the brief following AM and client consultation, the initial design begins to take shape.

Develop and refine

This is the point of maximum creative impact. From brand identity to advertising campaign, we realise the vision and complete the design ahead of client approval. This could be initial designs or final concept. Dependent on client feedback we would then refine the design.

Final outputs / launch

Whether it’s a print, website or digital imagery, we prepare the signed-off assets for handover to the next process.

Feedback and evaluation

We look forward to this bit – the results. At this final stage we garner client reviews, impact, overall effectiveness and analyse any metrics available. Job done (well).

Laravel Development



laravel logo

Laravel Development

If you could wave a magic wand to solve complex, fragmented – and quite frankly, cumbersome and time-consuming – internal processes, you’d be a happy business bunny, right?

 

Laravel web development service offering


One simplistic, custom-built, system-based solution which centrally manages data, automates, saves valuable resource and is tailored to streamline your organisational processes – it does indeed sound like a fairy tale.

But the beauty of fairy tales is that sometimes they actually come true in the most spectacular of ways and the hero of this particular story is Laravel, or our specialist Laravel development team to be precise.

As a UK Laravel agency we take the immense capabilities of this web application development framework and tailor them to your business infrastructure needs and requirements.

Whether that’s handling the complexities of multiple stakeholder involvement, rapidly speeding up sales processing times or handling large-scale third-party requests, Laravel offers impeccable centralised solutions that, well, make life a whole lot simpler and achieve much better outcomes for everyone involved.

It’s a solution to inefficient systems, complicated and time-consuming reporting and a whole host of head-scratching scenarios which are shackling your business or organisation.



Here’s why Laravel casts such a spell of functionality, innovation and design

Security at its best

Laravel allows us to develop robust integrated security measures to prevent cyber threats and malware activities.

High functioning performance

With a raft of tools at the Laravel developer’s fingertips, site performance can be boosted into the stratosphere, leaving the annoying glitches and hampered functionality far, far behind.

Community support

Because Laravel uses a PHP framework – the most popular and widespread coding language on the planet – it’s well supported by a huge community which means it will always improve and evolve to be the cutting-edge software of choice.

Always at the forefront

Laravel is known as an ‘open-source’ framework which means due to the many thousands of scrutinous developers who use it, any potential issues are spotted and quickly resolved.

User friendly

From database access to authentication tools, it includes everything you could possibly need for those essential site functions.

Quick and efficient

For a Laravel development team, it’s a joy to work with. Pre-built functions and structures based on PHP standards means development time is quicker, more efficient and it’s designed to appeal to multiple methods of working which ultimately equates to speedier delivery for the client.





Web application development

As an experienced Laravel agency this software allows us to provide a bespoke, integrated, solution to an existing client website which massively delivers on organisational objectives and provides a superior user experience. We’ve helped numerous businesses and organisations to reduce admin, wipe out inefficiencies, increase traceability and streamline processes thanks to Laravel’s secure, scalable and powerful offering.

Seamless API development

APIs (application programming interfaces) enable applications to swap data and functionality beyond web browsers simply and securely. So, when you want to expand to say mobile applications and connected devices, a Laravel development project can produce that extension seamlessly.

Tailored and bespoke

While some technologies are limiting, with Laravel the possibilities are endless when it comes to off-the-shelf features or functionality. This offers huge flexibility and scope which it comes to providing bespoke solutions.

eCommerce development

Laravel is the perfect platform to build online stores and execute eCommerce transactions thanks to its ability to deal with large influxes of traffic and complex customer journeys.

The door to sales

We can develop bespoke web portal solutions to handle a range of vendor eCommerce requirements for both B2B and B2C portals.





PHP IMAGE1 e1623934352709




Laravel CMS development

CMS (content management system) puts application control at your fingertips allowing user creation, modification and collaboration. With Laravel we can develop a succinct system which does all that and more including authentication control and enable push notifications.

Maintenance and support

With our range of maintenance and support packages you’re never alone. As an experienced Laravel development agency our specialists will assist, advise and rectify issues swiftly. Our support services are just a phone call or email away.

Peace of mind security

We’re intensely serious about security and you can rest assured we operate to the highest industry standards – and beyond. Customer data storage and processing is always stored in a secure environment and GDPR, cyber security threats and malware are always front of mind.

The forefront of design

All the technology and functionality in the world is worthless without outstanding design. Design runs to the core of Cornerstone / our agency / alongside impeccable and well-thought out UX (user experience). We focus on human interaction to make the world a simpler, brighter place to be.





More reasons to bang on about Laravel development

 

We hope you’re convinced and can fully appreciate why Laravel is superior in the web application development stakes.

But just in case here’s a quick summary:

  • Because we’re genuinely committed to helping our clients to be the best they can be, we take great pleasure and pride in providing something robust, efficient and pleasing. That is Laravel.
  • It’s built for speed, scale, performance and security.
  • It saves time and energy when it comes to testing and debugging, it can handle everything that’s thrown at it and it has the best support of any framework in the business.
  • While the wonderment of Laravel is something to marvel from a business objective, it’s also key to understand just how specialised a Laravel development team is – maybe they’re born with it?
  • Building applications with such intense functionality, innovation and design requires an affinity only Laravel developers possess and as a Laravel development agency we demonstrate and respect these attributes wholeheartedly.

Digital PR



iconProjectDigital

Digital PR

What is digital PR? Good question. Just like any PR, it’s a strategy to increase awareness of your business, brand or organisation, as well as improve its reputation.

The growth of digital technology has created an array of additional channels that enable us to create the perfect PR campaign.

By getting the best out of digital PR, we can help build links and authority for your website, helping to drive stronger SEO value and create a larger digital footprint for you to reach your target customer or audience, and for them to find you.

Our PR, creative, digital and social media teams will work together to create a strategy that’s right for you. We’ll explain every tactic, taking the mystery out of how digital PR will benefit your business, brand or organisation.

So, how can we use digital PR for you?

Social PR service offering




Digital content

Our experts can create content for any digital channel, and we know how essential it is to have the best quality content to increase organic traffic.

By concentrating on quality, we can put your website at the forefront of your sector. We’ll do that by creating beautifully crafted content and closely monitoring what’s getting the hits and what’s not.

Our strategy is simple, the better the website and content, the better the results brought about by increased trust, authority, and online reputation.

But it doesn’t matter how good your website is if it can’t be found on Google. That’s where our SEO and PPC expertise comes in to play. Content is carefully generated with SEO and your business objectives in mind, whilst PPC drives traffic and sales linked to your sales and marketing campaign goals and aspirations.

Quality content is key to your social media activity too. We can achieve results by upping your social media game through quality social media content creation to increase the number of followers and engagement, while supporting all the above with well-written email campaigns and automation to drive customer retention and referral.

Backlinking

Backlinking is all about the relevance, the quality and the authority of what your website has to offer.

There is no better endorsement of that than when one website links back to yours as a source of information. It can be notoriously difficult to achieve, but with our emphasis on quality digital PR and content creation, we can help you strive for excellence and earn the recognition you deserve, and the SEO rankings you need to continue growing your online presence.

Thought leadership and opinion

You’re at the top of your game and that status could reflect in your brand. Through thought leadership – your opinions and insight – we would ensure your target audience sees you and your brand in the most positive light.

Our PR team will seize on the opportunities to spot the stories that you could comment and expand upon, sharing insight based on your knowledge and experience.

We could go further and suggest a white paper – a report or guide to inform readers on a complex issue presented through your point of view.

Or, we could put you forward as an industry expert for comments in leading news and trade publications, or to provide social commentary on a particular issue.

There are plenty of opportunities and we won’t miss them.







Newsjacking

Newsjacking, or reactive PR as it is sometimes called, is all about spotting the opportunities to capitalise on your knowledge and opinions. As with thought leadership, we’ll be putting your brand in front of its target audience, sometimes just as news is breaking – hence the term newsjacking.
You need to be quick sometimes, but we’re always on our toes!

Trade, national and local PR

Of course, there is nothing more effective than getting your story into the media, whether it’s local, national or the relevant trade press. Our clients are well accustomed to earning coverage locally, regionally and nationally to help grow their brand presence, consumer confidence in their offering and backlinks to their online sites.

Again, our experienced PR team always have their antennae in action for what could provide your business, brand or organisation with coverage to enhance your brand and reputation.

Reporting

None of what we’ve explained here would mean anything if we couldn’t provide the data to support our digital PR campaign. Our teams are constantly monitoring responses, keeping tabs on website hits down to the smallest detail, and constantly tracking social media audiences, engagement, likes, comments, shares and retweets as well as email open and click rates.

When it comes to published content, we’ll provide insights into value of the links and content we’ve created and the estimated value if it were paid media.

And in line with our honest and ethical approach to everything we do, we’ll tell you exactly what’s right for you.

The more your content is found and shared, the more your reputation and status grows. Let us take you on that journey.

Internal PR



iconProjectPR

Internal PR

You’ve got plans. You’ve got something to celebrate. Changes are coming.

The reasons may be many and varied, but effective employee communications will help your staff live and breathe your mission, vision and values, and deliver on corporate objectives.

‘Knowledge is a tool, and like all tools, its impact is in the hands of the user.’ So said the best-selling author Dan Brown – famous for The Da Vinci Code. We reckon Dan’s hit the nail on the head when it comes to taking employees on a shared journey that will see them exude your aims and ideals, especially when dealing with your customers.

Here at Cornerstone, our team can make that knowledge tool work for you. In fact, one of our copywriters has even picked up a couple of awards for employee and business communications from a leading UK retailer.

Let’s look in more detail at the ways we can make internal PR work for your business, brand or organisation, and the benefits they create.

Internal PR service offering




People and culture

Capturing your employees’ attention and keeping it is at the core of our internal PR campaigns.

This can be achieved through a variety of methods, such as business and employee newsletters, business-wide intranets, company presentations – including video – email communications, poster campaigns, engagement events or simple table-talkers. We’ll work with you to choose the most effective way of communicating and getting results.

So, whether it’s a new brand or product launch, a new marketing campaign, new internal restructure, mergers and acquisitions, corporate social responsibility (CSR), investments, or something else, internal PR can ensure that you benefit from employees who are well informed, well supported and totally on board.

And if there’s a difficult situation to broach, our honest and ethical approach to everything we do means we are ideally placed to ensure your communications will be shared in the most constructive way possible.

Brand values

It’s been said that some employees know what they do, some know how they do it but fewer understand why. We know how crucial it is that employees understand all three, so your customers receive a consistent experience, and your teams reach their full potential, gaining enrichment from the role.

We’ll work with you to effectively communicate your brand’s core values, mission and vision, meaning that all your stakeholders are fully on board and fully engaged.

Common goals

Every cog has a part to play in a well-oiled machine and another benefit of effective employee communications is achieving your common goals.

Your vision sets out your goals, and your mission is how you achieve them. But why should your employees care?

Effective communications and engagement will explain the why – after all that’s the purpose of your business or organisation in the first place. Through internal PR – using some or all the methods we’ve outlined already – we can bring your purpose to life, meaning your employees connect not just with each other but with your customers too.







Educate and inform

Nothing ever stays the same and as things change throughout a business or organisation, it’s important that employees are well informed about those changes.

Internal PR is a great tool for educating too, sharing knowledge on new product lines, sales campaigns, expenses procedures, holiday bookings, or whatever it may be. We will work with you to create the most effective messaging delivered for maximum engagement.

Change communications

Perhaps one of the trickiest strategies for any business or organisation is to communicate change.

It’s not cod psychology to say everybody reacts differently to change, that’s why it’s crucially important it’s communicated in the right way.

We’ll help you put people at the heart of your communications. We’re all human and we all react better when we know how change affects us and why.

Get in touch

Contact Cornerstone to find out how we can use internal PR to market your business or organisation as one that cares and takes time to make employees and stakeholders feel valued.

Creative and design agency services

The cherry on the top or the bread and butter of your business?

We strongly believe the latter because although design brings the delicious wow-factor we’re all hungry for, it’s very much at the core of business and brand identity. Cornerstone’s design agency team boasts over three decades of combined industry experience and brief interpretation acumen. They are responsible for bringing countless campaigns, websites and printed elements to life.

How we do it

Natural talent and experience count for everything when it comes to design. Our in-house creatives have bags of both, and their work can be seen across the UK, from brand logos to billboards and signage.

The department is the creative cog of Cornerstone and offers expertise in illustrating brand vision, eye-catching advertisements and campaign concepts.






We guarantee a collaborative approach



iconBrandingIdentity

• Branding and identity

Branding is essential to a product or business. Executed well, it’s a guiding light for consumers and customers and helps to form valuable perceptions that will continue to resonate for years to come. Just think of the household name products, companies and organisations we can identify by simply recalling their branding? It’s a crucial element and can become your most valuable asset. Getting it spot on is the work of the designers. Our team creates brand marks, including logos, literature, promotional materials, digital assets and websites.

iconCampaignCreative

• Campaign creative

Our designers create the look and feel of new campaigns, using either new or pre-existing branding. This can be stand-alone visuals and messaging, which compliments an existing brand or an advertising promotion. They also add the design element to campaigns to promote a significant company event or anniversary, or to launch a new product or service.  These often include print design, web design and branding.

iconBrochure

• Print design and marketing literature

If it can be printed, we can design it – brochures, leaflets, flyers, posters, annual reports, newsletters, magazines, promotional materials, the list is extensive. Just get in touch and we’ll happily accommodate your requirements.

iconPackaging

• Packaging and point of sale

Our creative team is highly experienced in packaging design, from single to full product ranges across a wide range of sectors and industries including pharmaceuticals. These include cartons, bottles, blister packs, in fact any type of packaging you can think of. From point-of-sale branding to leaflet dispensers, shelf talkers and counter displays we specialise in hard working POS materials from initial concept through to design.

iconVideo

• Video

If you want your image to move you’ve come to the right place. And it all starts with our designers. They initially create concepts and storyboards for client projects before the filming and stock footage process begins. Our video production and motion graphics services include:

  • Annual Report Videos
  • Promotional Videos
  • Motion Graphics Videos
  • Training Videos
  • Product Focussed Videos
iconCamera

• Product photography and pack visuals

Cornerstone is well equipped to provide a professional range of product shots and imagery – we’re also well connected when it comes to specialist photography suppliers. Our designers are heavily involved in this creative process whether it’s individual products shots or designing room sets for lifestyle imagery.

Our process

Insight and understanding

We analyse the in-house team brief, assessing what you want to achieve, researching style guides and fully understanding a client’s likes and dislikes.

Clarify the challenge(s)

We begin to interpret the brief on a deeper level, identifying the campaign or project goals and objectives which need to be meet through the design

Ideation

Once we’ve established the firm creativity and have a solid understanding of the brief following AM and client consultation, the initial design begins to take shape.

Develop and refine

This is the point of maximum creative impact. From brand identity to advertising campaign, we realise the vision and complete the design ahead of client approval. This could be initial designs or final concept. Dependent on client feedback we would then refine the design.

Final outputs / launch

Whether it’s a print, website or digital imagery, we prepare the signed-off assets for handover to the next process.

Feedback and evaluation

We look forward to this bit – the results. At this final stage we garner client reviews, impact, overall effectiveness and analyse any metrics available. Job done (well).
