What our clients say about us

Cathedral Isle of Man

"We enjoy an excellent Client/Creative relationship with Titman Firth. Their understanding of the very special requirements of a Cathedral is reflected in their original yet sympathetic approach to our re-branding of Cathedral Isle of Man. We now have a suite of literature co-ordinating with the website, ranging from outdoor posters to service books, visitor experience leaflets etc., which combines strong images with clean, modern lines yet retaining a Celtic influence. TF respond quickly to both large and small projects and no query is ever too trivial - they are always willing to "go the extra mile" in order to get the desired result, giving superior customer service and taking a real pride in their work."

Judith Ley, Honorary Lay Canon Cathedral Isle of Man
Beebys Ltd

"I was impressed by Titman Firth’s professional approach, attention to detail and understanding that the finished product should play a practical role in bringing in new business. I recommend them to any company that is serious about implementing a new identity or developing an existing one."

Mark Beeby, Managing Director Beebys Ltd
Gifted Philanthropy Ltd

"Communications are at the centre of successful fundraising, so selecting a partner that has the proven experience to deliver is vital. Titman Firth has consistently surprised and delighted our clients with the quality of their creative concepts, attention to detail in production and reliability to deliver. We love their work so much that the Titman Firth team were our first choice to give life to the Gifted Philanthropy brand and to provide innovative and exciting marketing initiatives as our business grows."

Andrew Day, Chief Executive Gifted Philanthropy Ltd

How we work with you

The Titman Firth process described here could form the heart of your project programme; helping you complete on time, on budget and to the highest standards.

1. Getting to know you
The initial meeting or contact is where you tell us about yourself and what you want to achieve.
For example, we will ask about your customers, competitors, target audience, key messages, brand personality - and of course your business, marketing and communication objectives.

We will also ask about the logistics of the project itself and details of your key deadlines, preferred methodology and any restrictions on the project. Examples of past projects in our portfolio will be shown when we discuss your options, including the likely timescales and cost examples.

Our recommendation is that a number of people from your organisation are involved at the briefing stage and remain on the project throughout.

2. Our proposal
The initial meeting or contact helps us prepare a proposal. We will often have developed some new ideas since the initial meeting, so the proposal might detail new ways to achieve the objectives discussed. For example, a folder with a range of inserts may have been discussed at the meeting, but after careful consideration we might suggest an alternative, such as a range of separate brochures. This is because we spend time after the meeting examining your needs and exploring how your budget might be put to the best use.

Our proposal includes a summary of costs, timescales and payment terms.

3. Concepts
Design is always a subjective matter, and so what we believe is right for your target audience might not actually be to your personal taste. That's why we believe in the value of producing more than one concept for each new project. If we produce a number of concepts then we are likely to find a solution you can support. In addition we often produce wire frame layouts - particularly for websites prior to the design process to ensure content has the correct emphasis.

As an extra check to make sure we are heading in the right direction, you are encouraged where possible to test the concepts with members of your target audience or focus groups. This will give you the confidence that the concept you choose will meet your communication objectives. 

4. Proofs
Once a concept has been chosen, we take your feedback and produce the first proof. We also produce working examples where necessary so you can see how any folds or inserts actually work. After receiving your comments on the first proof, we develop a second one.

Our estimates usually budget for two proofs in print or online, enough for most projects as we generally find that clients are happy with the second proof. You can of course make further changes at this stage and we would charge a simple hourly rate for the extra work. Even so, we would naturally gain your approval before proceeding.

5. Your sign-off
Before putting a site live or sending a file to print we seek your approval. This is not normally an opportunity to make significant changes but purely a means of checking that all images and text appear correctly and that functionality is faultless.

6. Printing
We can manage the whole print process from selecting the appropriate printer for the job to ensuring the quality of the printing is to the required specification. We maintain a high level of contact with the printer and can preview random copies off the press to ensure that quality consistency is realised.

7. Delivery
We always see the printer's finished product, authorising delivery only if we are happy with what we see. This is another way we give you peace of mind.

8. Aftercare service
Our aftercare service enables you to place your reprint orders direct with us in the knowledge that the same quality control procedures will be adhered to. In addition, we can help if you decide to take things further, for example by making a brochure available as a PDF file, converting your stationery style into an email-compatible format,
