Ast marked quite a milestone on Friday. We turned 18.
Old enough to drink…18 years in business is no mean feat. Our company has grown from offering purely signage, to providing the full range of branding services we have now; we’ve seen a number of premises before landing in our current purpose-built HQ and perhaps most significantly, we’ve weathered a few storms – and are still weathering them.
What’s most satisfying about where we are today is that we can take a whole, holistic look at our clients’ branding. We can still look after just one logo, for one one-man-band, but we can now also offer everything, from establishing brand identity, key values and approved terms to use when writing about the brand, to full branding guidelines, to signage, to transport branding, to commercial interior design and even to promoting the brand via marketing, social media support and public relations.
We’ve worked hard to gather a team of people who are expert in all of the above and that means we can offer our clients an exceptional, comprehensive branding service that sets us apart from our competitors. And we’ve grown to manufacture in-house too, which is huge – it means we can design and manufacture with cost in mind and we can deliver faster too.
We marked our 18th birthday by treating our team in socially distanced style. Fish and chip van, ice cream van and specially-made Ast 18 Gin. A good day was had by all. Here’s to the next 18 and sincere thanks to all our clients, particularly those that have been with us for so many of our 18 years.
