A little bit about Smith & Co Estates and the project

Smith & Co Estates are an independent Nottinghamshire based lettings and sales agent. Smith & Co approached us with the task of branding the company to appeal to their clients whilst sticking to a strict colour pallette.

This brand embodies quality, heritage and gives the company the professional look they required to shake the new business tag.

Not only did Smith & Co require branding work completing they were also happy to let us take care their web site design and development as detailed below.

The Brand

Estate Agency Board Design

Predefined colour scheme

The colour scheme for this project was predefined by the companies new shop front which is housed within a listed building, this required the use of a certain colour pallette to adhere to local building regulations, using the Dulux Heritage Colour Range the pallette was decided and work began on creating a small batch of concepts.

Not just a logo

Once the logo was chosen from the three concepts provided work began on the companies stationery which consisted of some high quality 450gsm business cards for each employee, double sided compliments slips and letterheads for the sales and lettings sides of the business.

Other printed items we created artwork for were the sales and lettings boards on display throughout Nottinghamshire and larger signs for new build sites the company were involved in marketing.

 

A Wordpress web site fully integrated with the Vebra Alto software for estate agencies

Vebra Alto Wordpress Website

The requirement

The Smith & Co web site was developed upon the WordPress system to allow the admin team to manage the content. There was also the integration of the Vebra Alto system which pulls all properties from the companies portfolio to display them on the site without the lengthy process of re-populating this seperately.

Valuation

The aims of the web site were simple, to make it easy for a potential landlord to get a valuation on their property and to show off the range of properties available to potential buyers and rental clients.
