Branding & Strategy

Working closely with founder Andrew, we held an initial brand workshop, to define and develop a new brand identity. During the session we came up with a new brand name, “GladePark Investments”.

This name was a perfect fit as it referenced both the natural forestry where the parks are located and the sustainable materials the lodges are made of, whilst remaining true to the product, of a holiday leisure park.

After deciding upon a name, our designers created a simple and sophisticated logo that was easily recognisable and incorporated a natural element to reflect the sustainable approach to the brand’s investment opportunities. The team then worked on defining the colour palette, incorporating a primary colour of blue to enhance the feeling of trust. Whilst adding a secondary green, as a highlight and nod to the growth of the business.

Once the company rebrand was complete, we focused on enhancing the Digital presence of GladePark Investments.

Website design for property investment firm

As a leading website design agency, we understand the importance of conducting an initial audit to assess the current website, identifying strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvements. We concluded that the user experience needed to be enhanced and copy improved to meet expectations.

Like all our website projects, we started by focusing on the user journey, creating sitemaps and wireframes that identify the structure of each web page. Using this as a guide, our team designed and built a bespoke 8-page WordPress website with animated transitions and stylised features.

To coincide with the website launch, we have been working with GladePark Investments to create both online and offline marketing campaigns, including; Local SEO, Google Ads and advertorials in local newspapers, to drive new investment enquiries.

This approach attracted 6,600 visitors, demonstrating our ability to engage the audience with valuable and relevant content.

Our SEO strategy was comprehensive, including on-page optimisation to ensure the website was relevant for key search queries, technical optimisation to enhance site performance, and optimisation of Glade Park’s Google Business Profile to boost local visibility.
