Summer Creative are in the business of commercial branding – bringing companies and
customers closer together through creative thinking and quality design.
To us, design is an essential part of a brand’s personality – showing who you are, what you stand for and how you want to be perceived. In a world where the consumer experiences brands through multiple channels, creative, consistent design is crucial in making and maintaining the right impression.
There are no formal departments or shut doors in our offices. (In fact, apart from the
loos and the meeting rooms, there aren’t any doors!)
Just related areas of expertise. A belief in doing our best. And the flexibility
to create teams totally tailored to task.
So if you’d like to borrow our brains for a bit, here’s how we might be able to help you:
Stand Design & Build
Installation & On-site Support
Conferences & Hospitality Suites
Design for Print
Online & Digital
Point of Sale
Shop Design & Install
Whatever the brand. Whatever the brief…. and whatever the budget.
At Summer, we pride ourselves on being clever, creative and modest!
With names like Mattel, The Open and Sony on our client roster, you might
mistake us for a big agency with egos to match.
Nothing could be further from the truth. We are a close-knit team that thrives in a fun,
friendly and vibrant atmosphere.
We’re not big on jargon or artificial processes that might bog a brief down.
And we believe in working closely with our clients. (The more we know about you,
the better the chances of success.)
It’s a culture based on strategic nous, creative collaboration and common sense.
One – we hope – that might make sense for you too?
But above all, we are flexible – creating teams that suit a client’s needs, not our internal structures. So whatever the task, you can be sure that one (or more) of the founding partners will be
hands-on when you give us a brief.
