2019 has been a fantastic year for our branding agency, ClearBrand.
Over the year we have helped build up brands for some of the Thames Valley’s key influencers. ClearBrand have helped create new and exciting brands for local businesses that have gone out and been seen across the UK and internationally. We have been recognised for this by being shortlisted for an Award at the Thames Valley Business & Community Awards.
At the end of last year we redesigned the website and animated logo for innovative central-Reading based award winning Timetrap escape rooms (See their site here www.timetrapescaperooms.com), who have gone on to win the pride of Reading awards alongside the gold award key from the UK’s leading escape room reviewer.

We then were asked to rebrand local Newbury based market research agency Vanson Bourne (https://www.vansonbourne.com/) who have been running for over 20 years. We’re really proud of the creative solutions and have prepared a case study outlining our process from our discovery stage to final outcomes here: www.clearbrand.co.uk/works/vansonbourne

Another highlight of the year was our packaging concept design work for Moo Free, who have had their HQ in Reading up until this year. Moo Free (www.moofreechocolates.com) are a world leading, multi-award winning manufacturer of delicious dairy, gluten and soya free chocolate, that’s also vegan friendly. ClearBrand worked across new products, seasonal ranges, concept designs & exhibitions. Our design work for Moo Free products can be seen nationally across ASDA, Holland & Barrett, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s & Waitrose and internationally from resellers. Moo Free have won 9 industry awards last year including awards from the vegan food awards and independent, which can be seen here. We have put together our case study for last year’s work here: https://www.clearbrand.co.uk/works/moo-free.

As summer came along we were thrilled to be contacted by world & Paralympic Rowing Champion Lauren Rowles, who lives and trains locally in Reading, to work on her new personal logo and website, which launched over the last few months http://laurenrowles.com/. We’re now working with Lauren on her podcast launching this year.

Further rebranding projects included a national cleaning franchise started in Reading. Daily Poppins are a national domestic and professional cleaning franchise, with over 50 sites across the UK. They came to ClearBrand wanting to modernise their brand and website, while improving user experience and brand recognition. You may have seen their bubbly red cars darting around and we’re proud to have added our creative stamp to the franchise. Check our our case study for the brand clean-up here: https://www.clearbrand.co.uk/works/daily-poppins/

2019 was also our most successful to date as we won one of our biggest contracts in the company’s short history this year. We are currently rebranding The Business Continuity Institute (www.thebci.org), an international membership organisation with headquarters based in Caversham in Reading. With over 8000 members in more than 100 countries, the BCI truly are the leader in their industry and are a fantastic representation of the reach that the Thames Valley area has. For confidentiality reasons we can’t share too much from this project, but are excited to launch the new brand in early 2020.
