As part of our ongoing relationship with the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) we’re proud to have designed the latest crucially important Defined Benefit Taskforce report. A complex report – referencing new data and changing legislation, and with a constantly moving set of goalposts – its production required a very quick turnaround time and efficient sign-off process.

In the latest of our studio showcases, we’re looking back at some work we created for BUCS, the governing body of British Universities & Colleges Sport.
This annual review and strategy document communicates data and statistical information through infographics and detailed, intuitive charts. Using a restrained colour palette of black and gold, bold shapes and heavy, immediate type were implemented to emphasise the heavyweight, energetic impact they have made on collegiate sport.
This week we’re excited to be exhibiting at The Business Show 2017 at ExCeL London. And we’re bringing the colour with an unusual centrepiece to our stand which invites you to grab a felt-tip, get involved and help us create a masterpiece.
Stop by stand 6082 for a chat and one of the arc team will sort you out with the colour of your choice, then simply choose a segment and away you go! (more…)

We’re proud and excited to announce that we’ve recently completed the phase one branding for the 21st century’s first new garden city at Ebbsfleet, in North Kent. It will be applied to launch material and documentation, appear on signage around the development and be used by developers and partners on their collateral too. Roll-out will continue over the next few years as the development grows in scale.
Feedback so far has been extraordinary, with praise for our work from the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation:
Leaving the studio this week is this huge and richly detailed visualisation of a couple of typical Scottish properties and the wide array of potential electrical hazards they contain. Created for client Electrical Safety First by our master illustrator Stuart, this fascinating and colourful illustration is on its way to become part of their ‘Inequality Street’ electrical safety awareness campaign at the Scottish Parliament.

We’ve recently completed an awareness raising project for long-standing client Old Palace of John Whitgift School and are pleased to have received these kind words:
We are absolutely delighted with the new We Are Excellent campaign that arc has designed to promote the school’s latest ISI Inspection. In particular the impact it has had at East Croydon Station. It really has proved quite a talking point!

We’re very proud and hugely excited to announce that we’ve begun working with Fontwell Park Racecourse on the promotion of their racing calendar and events.
We were briefed to create and deliver promotional campaigns which conjure up the energy, passion and the “blood and thunder” of horseracing and roll them out across everything from posters and race card adverts, to online and social media advertising.

After the extraordinary response to last year’s Christmas card, Glenn from sales has been at it again and, felt-tip in hand and tongue out in concentration, we think he may even have bettered his previous effort. (OMG he used colour this time!)
Merry Christmas and a happy new year from the team at arc.
Christmas opening times:
Arc Towers will be closed from Christmas Eve until Tuesday 3 January. Fear not though, between then urgent enquiries can still be directed to [email protected] for prompt attention.

The winter wonderland themed Arc Christmas party kicked off in fine style at Gillingham FC’s Priestfield Stadium on Friday night. Arriving to a festive flurry courtesy of snow machines, we were treated to a three-course meal, a magic act called Chicks ‘n Tricks (which was not as provocative as it sounds!), a rodeo bull, novelty photo booth and, as you can imagine, as much ‘refreshment’ as you could consume and remain upright.
We’ve just returned from the PLSA Annual Conference 2016 where we designed and produced the exhibition stand for Financial News.
Our brief was to make the stand look like a brewery, so we dived straight in to the research phase with enthusiasm (as you can imagine).

Welcome to another new face!
It gives us great pleasure to introduce to you the latest addition to our team. Ryan Ansley joins our growing business development team full of youthful energy and fresh knowledge.
We’re proud to support our friend Freddy Taylor, who has done a very brave thing and removed his clothes for a good cause. He called in to the studio to collect the Orchid charity calendars we produced for him, filled with average “Joes” with normal jobs who took their kit off to support Orchid – Fighting Male Cancer.

Arc is proud to introduce to you our two newest team members, Glenn Murphy and Becki Smallman, who join us to bolster our business development team. Now, on to the details: Sackfulls of new ideas? Check. Passionate about client service? Check. Enthusiastic about biscuits? All over that shizzle.
So, next time you hear from us, it’ll be one of these two lovely folks at the other end. Speak soon, eh?

The personalised mugs have arrived! Yeah!

We know it’s hard to find that special someone this Valentine’s Day. Someone to really trust. To lean on when budgets and deadlines get tight. We can be that someone (well, someones actually, but you get the gist). We have integrity, we’re honest and we’re creative. On top of that we keep ourselves trim, have a GSOH and a whole bunch of sparkling eyes you could lose yourself in.
Go on, give us a call. We’re your ideal partner.

“arc has proven itself to be an extremely capable and creative agency. The quality of their work is of the highest standard and they are able to turn projects around very quickly, often up with excellent solutions to complex issues. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”

This week we launched a new awareness campaign for the Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). The simple, eye-catching campaign is designed to increase understanding of the role of the CCG in providing healthcare to the residents of Waltham Forest. It comprises newspaper ads, 16-sheet posters, bus backs and poster sites on the underground.

Let’s hope the sport continues to live up to it!

The only way to make something that is already brilliant even better, is to recruit the very best creative people out there. With this in mind and with great excitement, may I introduce… Dan Mason.
Those out there fortunate enough to have already dealt with Dan are probably chomping at the bit to work with him again. Give us a shout to rekindle your relationship.
The best just got even better!

We can hardly believe it but we have been doing what we do for 10 years now – time really does fly by when you are doing what you love!! The faces have changed but the philosophy is still the same – “to be the best.”
Here’s to the next 10!

Always keen to utilise their skills for a worthwhile cause, the team at arc were proud to be asked by the ITF to help promote wheelchair tennis. A series of specially commissioned pieces were carefully produced for use at the Paralympics.

We preach the need to ‘evolve’, so as part of our 10 year celebrations we have given ourselves a little ‘attention’ – and why not?! To spice things things up we have added a little ‘pink’ to our logo, new website and even the office!

After the success of last years ’40 Days UK,’ Robin is getting back in the saddle and all in aid of charity. In October he will ride from London to Rabat raising awareness and collecting money along the way for Medecins Sans Frontieres.
We are keen to do our bit for this great effort and once again are helping with all of the creative elements. Good luck Robin!
