Case Study

Carrington West


This well-known national facilities and public sector recruitment agency wanted new, inspiring interior graphics and literature that would engage and motivate their staff.


In our time spent with Carrington West we concluded that ‘networking’ and ‘infrastructure’ would define their recruitment sector well. We created an interconnected world, a journey through their business, their history, services and the fun they have along the way – the story of Carrington West.

  • Office Wall Graphics
  • Digital Marketing
  • Internal Communication
  • Management of Photoshoot

Lively, fun, Inspiring

‘We are hardworking, but a home from home is important to us, a community of recruiters.’

Building worlds

‘We want immersion, detail, fun and landmarks.’ The closer you look, the more you see, the next time you see it you will see something different.

Expression of industry

As well as having an other worldly feel to the graphics, we also ensured they spoke of the technical, the infrastructure and the company’s people.


As part of Carrington West’s office refurb we were tasked with facilitating a photoshoot. For this we created a set of office environment shots and portraits that could be used on their website, literature and website. The overall theme was to show team work, friendly engagement and a professional work space.

As the final part of their requirements, we used all of the design assets and new photography to build a new staff handbook for all new starters at Carrington West. It was to be engaging, fun and informative, while reflecting the environment visually.

  • "We were recommended Neil as we looked to undertake a complete brand and website redesign. We couldn't be happier with the results and the process. Neil and his team understood the brief clearly and their approach was open and flexible. As with any project of this nature there were bumps along the way, and Neil couldn't have been more accommodating to assist and make changes. Thanks Neil!"
