We had been Colchester and Tendring Women’s Refuge for a significant number of years – so the move away from this name and towards a new, as yet unknown, name, brand and values was as much an emotional and cultural journey as a practical design journey.
Hannah spent much time exploring the culture and value of our organisation, our aspirations and what we felt we stood for and were passionate about. Hannah worked really well with our Senior Leadership Team and our Trustee Board, bringing us a wide-range of options that encompassed the different viewpoints and messages that had come out of our staff and board engagement work
Our staff are delighted with our new name and our branding, they feel confident using it and feel connected to it as it truly represents what we are about. We continue to work with Handstand to develop the use of our brand in our marketing and awareness raising activities. I would have no hesitation in recommending Handstand Marketing to anyone else.Beverly Jones, CEO, Next Chapter
Hannah provided support in setting the digital marketing strategy and plan for my start-up business. This included creating and measuring website, email and social media metrics and providing insight from those metrics to help guide future activity. Hannah also created and managed the monthly newsletter ensuring an increasing open and click through rate.
Hannah brought professionalism and focus to my digital marketing strategy ensuring that it aligned to what the business was trying to achieve.
Hannah was very helpful and brought real insight into the challenges I was facing and what I needed to do. She was always willing to help and to challenge my thinking helping create the shift needed. She always delivered on time and to expectations.
I would gladly recommend Hannah. She brings a great mix of strategic thinking and practical application.Rob Cross, Owner, Muru Leadership
Handstand were as good as their quirky name, producing a really original new brand for our school.
From the outset they were a pleasure to work with. They listened and really wanted to meet our brief. Hannah took the time to engage with all the school’s stakeholders which means that our new branding really captures the essence of what we are about. The transformation of our new logo and website homepage using the new design is more than we hoped for. It is vibrant and colourful, just like our school. The school is at the heart of the community and this is represented in the design.
There was an audible gasp when the new branding was first revealed to the school community. One Year 3 child excitedly shouted “…the new logo is wowzers!”
Handstand were simply excellent in all that they did. Their after-care service is equally as impressive.Melanie Vine, Headteacher, Earls Colne Primary School
We engaged Hannah and her team to develop our website including updating the look, feel and functionality of the website. The team were clear on the timelines and all deadlines were met with the site being launched on time as planned. The team communicated clearly, listened to us and at the same time pushed us to think differently. The outcome is is a website that we are delighted with. Hannah and the team are now going to look at our branding and marketing in general. We feel confident and comfortable working with Hannah and so her further involvement is a natural evolution.Aron Newton, Commercial Director, PFE Express Ltd
Hannah worked as a marketing consultant with the Literature, Film and Theatre Studies department at the University of Essex, advising on promotion strategy as we looked to raise recruitment. Her comprehensive marketing plan has helped us to build brand awareness of our courses. She was wonderful to work with and we have already started to see the results of her efforts making a significant impact on marketing in our department.James Canton, Course Director, University of Essex
Hannah has helped me and my website with SEO keyword research and content optimisation to help my website become more visible. Unfortunately, my website was not as SEO friendly as I had initially thought, so Hannah ran a keyword audit to highlight where the focus of my new website content was needed and impressed upon me the need for more content. Since then she has worked with me to update and added content on my website, such as new articles that have come out in the press, videos and webinars as well as a monthly blog.
Hannah, is easy to work with, she answers emails promptly which is really important for me and I know I can trust her to maximise my content potential. I would highly recommend her and her services.Dr Shahzadi Harper, Owner, The Harper Clinic
