Worcestershire design firm wins contract with St. Modwen

Worcester-based creative services agency, F8 Creates, has signed off a new website for St. Modwen, the developer and regeneration specialist. The purpose-built website for St. Modwen, whose head office is in Longbridge, Birmingham, recently went live as part of the launch of the company’s new brand and visual identity.

“The new corporate website for St. Modwen marked the launch of our new brand, with our new look and feel.  It was designed by Hemingway Design but we wanted to work with a local company, with a team who had the skills and agility to translate the design concepts into a first-rate website and could turn it around within a relatively short timeframe,” said Kathryn Edwards, Interim Head of Corporate Communications. Working with F8, I was able to liaise directly with co-director Greg Smith and lead designer Alex Redman. Having this access was invaluable as we could work collaboratively, and it played a big role in the project being delivered on time and on budget, to a tight deadline,” she said.

A full service creative agency, specialising in branding, photography and videography, F8 works for clients across a range of industry sectors. The firm created the Worcestershire Business Central website and is working on a new website for Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce.

“We were delighted to get the opportunity to work with St. Modwen and it represents our first partnership with a FTSE 250 company,” said co-director Greg Smith. “The website was a big job – around 80 pages needed to be created. Our main aim was to ensure it worked well on all devices and was engaging and accessible for users.”

The St. Modwen commission comes after a period of rapid growth for the consultancy, following a three-year-contract win to supply MarComms for Worcestershire County Council’s suite of business support programmes in 2017.

F8 is the driving force behind the creation of The Kiln, Worcester’s new co-working space. The Kiln was awarded £255,000 funding from Worcester City Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in 2017, and work has already begun on transforming Worcester’s old police station in Copenhagen Street into a blend of open-plan office space, break-out areas and some enclosed office areas.

“As our client base continues to expand, we’re excited to be a key part of the Kiln, which will help bring together a range of entrepreneurs, freelancers and tech-minded experts,” said Smith.

Smith and co-director Hamish Gill recently delivered a branding seminar at WINN’s Great Things event in May, which brought together innovators from a range of industry sectors, including tech, renewables, science, finance and business development.
