Most of the case studies below were based on existing branding, some were based on images and content supplied, while others were produced entirely from 'scratch'.
In most of these examples, GND helped the client clarify the marketing direction and/or informational objectives, developed themes and slogans, then wrote or re-wrote the text content (including restructuring headings and subheadings) and sourced appropriate royalty-free images.
GND also provided the final print on most of these items, via competitively priced trade suppliers.
