Space Studios

A bite-size brochure for a multi-purpose recording studio

Space Studios is a fab little recording studio, used for business, pleasure and more. Brides can spend their hen nights laying down a track for posterity. Kids spend their birthdays in full voice and giving it some welly. Businesses record audio for marketing or get the idea. Step up to the mic, record your voice and take it home on CD.

Customers were coming to the studio for one thing, and often coming back to get more of the same. But there was a chance to cross-sell by showing different customers the other packages on offer - so they wheeled me in for a quiet natter, then we got to work.

With so many different packages, we decided against flyers and opted for a brochure with a single page per option. Then we looked at the user experience and spotted an easy way to make sure the customer would see the brochure and hold onto it: we made it CD size, so it could slot into the case they take home after recording.

Teaming up with a lovely designer called Mike, we then produced the brochure that gave each page its own style and flavour, while retaining a common look and language style throughout.

A flurry of interest, as the client reports:

"For our new marketing material we knew it was critical to make an impact in just a few words. There was no other choice but James to do the deed. The brochure was perfect and hit the target audiences precisely. We knew the rewards would be huge!"

Jessica Morgan, Managing Director Space Studios
