It has been an important year for Springboard with many changes taking place across the company. In May this year we moved offices from our base in Frimley Green to a new location on the London Road, Camberley. The team now enjoy a spacious office with a great big window in which the light pours in. Perfect for getting the creative juices flowing.
We’ve had a busy year building new relationships and taking on projects for new clients. We also have exciting new partnerships in place on the production side, in particular with printers and manufacturers – perfect for clients in the events and exhibitions space.
This year Springboard worked with the NHS, which included custom designing and coding a unique website incorporating a 360-degree feedback tool. This is a system whereby employees receive anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. The site we built enables members of staff to signup and nominate people to give them feedback, which is then collated in a report and sent to their manager. Such feedback contributes to continuing personal and professional development. Creating this type of site was a new pursuit for Springboard and we are really happy with the results. Most importantly, so are the clients! Check out the website here www.valuesbasedmentorship.co.uk.
Springboard took on another new client, YLC Chauffeur Services, which involved building a whole new brand from scratch. We were tasked with the initial branding concepts, logo design, website design and content with SEO considered throughout, as well as designing and printing premium business cards. Overall we have created a great new brand and handsome website, which the clients are extremely happy with. You can see it here www.ylcservices.co.uk.
Springboard were approached by another new comapny, SQR systems, and were tasked with refreshing their brand from a tired look, including rebranding their existing logo and building a new website. You can see the stunning results here www.sqrsystems.com. We were also asked to build a sub-site, which you can see here www.ceerus.com. In total the client was exceedingly pleased with the result, which makes us happy too.
While we are excited about the projects we’ve taken on for new customers, Springboard has also been working hard on projects for our highly valued existing clients. One important piece of work consisted of building a website for The Tackling FGM Initiative, which you can see here www.preventingfgm.org. We were approached by the charity Rosa (who we had already built a website for www.rosauk.org) to build the FGM site in order to strengthen community-based prevention work to reduce the risk of girls and young women of undergoing FGM – an extremely worthy and significant cause.
We also took on a new project for our valued clients at the Reach Academy Feltham – a primary and secondary school rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted – who are opening the new Reach Academy Sixth Form in September 2017. Springboard worked with the Reach Academy to create the new look for the Sixth Form, involving a complete ground up branding exercise. We went from having absolutely nothing to initial concepts, to logo design, to creating a prospectus with 30 x subject pages, designing a new website and an advertising banner to go outside the school. You can examine the attractive new website here www.reachacademysixthform.com.
Ultimately, it has been a fantastic year for Springboard and we are eagerly anticipating continued growth. We will carry on looking to work with existing and new customers, helping each other to grow together.
Thank you to everyone involved in Springboard’s projects this year and we hope you all look forward a prosperous future.
