A five-year balancing act

Five years ago this month I launched Balanced Agency. The mission was simple, to create my dream job and provide creative marketing support for smaller charities, startups & SMEs. It's been a fantastic five years and to celebrate I thought a facelift was in order – for the company not for me (possibly next year). I've evolved the brand, created a shiny new website and have launched on Instagram. Take a look.

Sharper image

The new brand is clean and sharp. Square, not rounded corners. Lobster Two has been replaced with Futura Light, and antique gold has turned to Yorkshire Grey, with just a touch of turquoise (or coral).

Services first

The new website, built in Wix (because we are Wix Experts here), is easy to navigate and focuses on six clear service areas. Services are illustrated through images of client projects with a couple of case studies. And obviously the blog is back.

So many pictures

What started as a pure consultancy firm has become a very visual studio. Most projects now involve design services at one level or another, such as branding, website development or brochure design. So that's why Balanced is now on Instagram, ‘cos there's something pretty to share.

Virtual team, real results

One of the unique features of Balanced Agency has always been our virtual team, and that's not changing. Although I'm based Southwark (South London), the agency has an extensive network of creative experts from many disciplines. Because we all work remotely, the company overheads are very low, so clients pay for talent, not fancy London offices.

So, check the new look and tell me what you think.

Oh, and Happy Birthday Balanced!
