    How has Covid impacted your business?

    The pandemic has resulted in loss for most of us – loss of normal life, loss of business and, most tragically, loss of loved-ones. Some businesses didn’t survive, while others had to completely change their operations in order to adapt. Statistics are now beginning to emerge on which sectors were most affected and their projected recoveries…

    Time for a fresh start?

    It’s that time of year again – the season is turning, the new term is starting and the back-to-school marketing is either making us reminisce or rush out and buy shoes, shirts and pencil cases. And this year we are at (hopefully) the tail end of a pandemic and what has been a challenging time for everyone. If ever there was a time for fresh new brand or campaign, it would be Autumn 2021. We’ve put together some inspiration for your fresh new image…

    How is your business staying safe in the new normal?

    As lockdown eases but Covid infections continue and caution is advised, most businesses are setting their own safety preferences and protocols. And many are requesting mask wearing and hand sanitisation at the very least to protect their staff and regular customers. Whatever your new rules for the new normal, communication is key and that’s where we can help you…

    Summer nights: Helping the night time economy recover

    Now that lockdown restrictions have been lifted – but caution advised – nightclubs are reopening for the first time in a year. It isn’t just nightclubs themselves that have been adversely affected by Covid-19 – DJs, promoters and suppliers to the sector have all found themselves facing an uncertain future. Marcomedia has a long history of supporting the clubbing industry (our founder Surinder was a DJ), most notably DJ Vix and Dhol ‘n’ Bass, and we also have a long history of public health campaigning (Surinder was also an NHS communications specialist – he’s a busy man!). Helping the night time economy recover whilst proceeding with caution is a difficult balance but if anyone can get it right it’s Team Marco. Here’s how we can help you…

    It’s been a challenging year for designers – yet look what we did!

    To say that it’s been a challenging year for everyone is an understatement. In our sector, as people processed the reality of the pandemic, marketing pretty much stopped for a while, leaving many designers without an income. And when brands did resume communications, strategy changed rapidly and designers had to keep pace if they wanted to survive. Add to this that many of them were juggling home-working, home-schooling and perhaps even losing their own loved-ones to COVID-19, whilst ensuring they delivered. And yet, in spite of everything – we did deliver. Which is why we think this year’s Design Week Awards are perhaps the most important so far…

    Can graphic design help us to heal?

    We’ve blogged before about the ways that design has helped in the pandemic – from guidance for the public and the data-sharing to creative ways to thank our incredible key workers. We’ve also emphasized the importance of businesses sending clear messages to their customers, even when things are uncertain. But this recent article in Design Week made us think about the ways that graphic design can help to heal both businesses and communities.
