We are Home*
Based in Guildford, Surrey, we’re an award-winning design agency specialising in the property sector. Over the past decade we’ve delivered bespoke property marketing collateral and promotional campaigns without the big price tag. We work with residential housebuilders, housing associations, commercial developers, architects, estate agents and other property related businesses.

We’re friendly and professional, and strive to achieve the best results for our clients. But most importantly we’re a pretty nice bunch of people to work with and we believe passionately in what we do.


WHAT WE DO

branding

BRANDING

A brand is not simply a pretty picture. A brand is a reputation, an experience. We tailor-make all aspects from logos and naming, to copywriting and brand guidelines. Through research and exploration, we will design a memorable brand for your development that is appropriate to its environment and aspirational for the target market.

print

PRINT DESIGN

Whether you need brochures, quality stationery or eye-catching advertising, we will design and manage the production of your print products to leave you with collateral so stunning you almost won’t want to give it away.

 

digital

DIGITAL DESIGN

Your website is the window to your company. It is your platform to show existing and potential clients what you do and how well you do it. As the world becomes more digitally-focused, it is essential to keep up with the latest technologies to ensure that when potential clients are looking for property, they can find and believe in you

architectural

ARCHITECTURAL VISUALISATION (CGI’s)

We bring architectural designs to life through still, moving and interactive imagery. By transforming the designs of developers and architects into stimulating interior and exterior visuals, we’re able to deliver life-like digital imagery that stands out in the marketplace to maximise off-plan sales.

photography

PHOTOGRAPHY

Capturing an image people will remember is an art. Luckily, it’s one that we’ve mastered. Our roster of photographers are some of the finest in the UK, and whether they’re shooting on digital or film, they won’t stop until they’ve got a killer image that grabs attention and makes people buy into your development.

signage

SIGNAGE AND DISPLAYS

Signage, hoardings and marketing suites are a key part of any development branding. We help to deliver memorable marketing suites and ensure that signage is installed professionally, long lasting and blends with its environment – or not as the case maybe?!

OUR APPROACH
Have you noticed how pretty much every design agency make the same claims on their website? We like to think that we’re a bit different. Here’s why…

  • A NEW WAY OF WORKING

    Years of working inside the big design agencies taught us much. By creating a streamlined agency with low overheads and a studio team made up of freelance ex-colleagues, we can provide better value for money than our rivals yet still provide outstanding creativity and client service. Without expensive London offices, company cars, middle management or gym memberships to fund, there’s no associated costs for us to pass onto our clients.

  • WE ARE COMMERCIAL AS WELL AS CREATIVE

    The agency is run by commercially-minded business people with a strong property marketing background who happen to be in the design field. Straightforward people who know that good design should boost profits and sales, not egos. We listen, say what we think, agree the direction and get on with it.

  • A FINAL BILL THAT MATCHES OUR ESTIMATE

    Sounds obvious doesn’t it? However, frequently it is not the case. We believe passionately in transparency where it comes to budgets and in not hiding costs. We will not estimate low and bill high, and if there are elements that fall outside the original scope of your brief, we will discuss and agree them with you in advance.

  • ALL THINGS TO ALL PEOPLE

    We can’t be, and nor should we. We are a small senior team and we believe in being up-front and honest. We are well connected and work with some of the leaders in their field in terms of print production, digital services and media buying. We’ll take responsibility for the project from start to finish – but where we use third parties we’re honest about it, both in terms of relationships and costs.

BUILDING BELIEF. THAT’S WHAT WE DO.
WHO WE’VE WORKED WITH

Our business is built on relationships and our clients are usually our best source of new business and referrals. Over the last decade all of our work has come directly from referrals or from the work we produce. We also work confidentially with other design agencies when they need extra resources or simply require fresh creative thinking.
