Flintriver has many years of experience in this area, and have recently amalgamated with a specialist website agency, Big Crayon. We currently work with a number of well known companies in Scotland, such as Bayne’s the Bakers, and drinks supplier Inverarity Morton, but we also work with many less established companies to create a strong identity for them.” “Business Gateway, is all about providing clear and realistic advice, in keeping with the clients’ budget, which may be restricted. Clients typically require help to obtain real value for money, and effective results for their business,” said Irvine. “So far, the Gateway contract has been varied and engaging, and we are enjoying meeting with different types of entrepreneurs and businesspeople who engage with the service.” “Now that we are living in a digital age, brand identity has never been more important, as it’s now used across so many new platforms, including, of course, social media,” he added. “Brand identity for most firms can incorporate items like the company’s website, printed collateral, exterior signage, banners and event & exhibition material, all of which we can help with,” finished Irvine.
