large format

With large format graphics there’s no hiding place!

They are intended to be very much present and visible in their environment, and need to withstand inspection from afar and at close quarters. That means the message needs to be communicated quickly and clearly, and the presentation needs to be sharp down to the detail.

Van livery for Strathearn Pest Control showing before and after

Van livery

Strathearn Pest Control Ltd

The design of this vehicle livery was so much more than just pimping a ride. The client was keen to retain the existing logo in its established form, along with the colours, but also to be able to compete with a major corporate player in the industry while remaining a trusted local business. The challenge, then, was to incorporate all these wishes within a new scheme that achieved all that and more. The solution does this in a way that puts the name front and centre, says clearly what the business is about, and gives the vehicles a stand-out appearance out on the road. It also has a friendliness that softens the serious image of the industry, which is handy for hospitality clients, for example, that might dread the appearance of a pest control van outside their premises. A real presence on the roads over a wide area, these vans are visibly a sign of success!

With her first product prototype produced, Jacqui needed to start getting into marketing mode, and part of this plan was attendance at suitable trade shows.
