Creative thought and fresh thinking for truly effective marketing communications
In the beginning
Started in 2005 by Richard Excell.
After a number of years freelancing across the Big Smoke and running design studios for several London agencies it was time to stop the daily commute on Southern and regain the work/life balance.
Starting back freelancing in the South East it was only after a night in the pub and those immortal words ‘I can get my own clients’ that Excell Design & Marketing was born. Oh yes, my friends remembered those words too and challenged me the next day.
Well, once I began networking with the Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce those first, few precious clients appeared and the company began to grow…
Positive thinking in tough times
3 years on and the our client base had grown considerably from Brighton, across Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and into London. The decision to set up had definitely been the right one at the right time.
However, as 2008 dawned it became clear the country was heading down that slope to recession and what turned out to be a prolonged one with far reaching results. We decided to knuckle down and concentrate in helping our clients focus on making the most of their marketing with effective results.
These were challenging times but we and our clients prevailed to come out of the recession stronger, more competitive and with a positive attitude to making business prosper.
Out of the dark, into the light
With the UK coming out of recession and digital marketing evolving and changing at a rate of knots, we decided to look at the services we were offering with a view to revising and refreshing them.
Social media has long played an important part in marketing, so we decided to open up our experience and expertise in helping businesses and organisations establish a stronger presence online through social media.
As Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus grew so did our offerings in this cost-effective marketing media. Integrating it with our website and email marketing services we helped our clients become stronger in their online presence.
Five years on…
…and Excell Design & Marketing establishes a second base in Epsom, Surrey to enable it to service our existing Surrey and London clients more effectively and to grow our presence here.
Geographically it has proved a pivotal point in the growth of Excell Design & Marketing helping us to help more clients in this region while continuing to maintain and develop our clients in the Brighton and Sussex areas.
The journey continues
It’s 2017, and after extraordinary leadership challenges and changes in our country and across the Atlantic, and with daily performances from the Brexit circus we and our clients continue to thrive.
Excell Design & Marketing has developed and evolved since it’s inception in 2005 alongside our clients, colleagues and friends. There are exciting times ahead for businesses and organisations in the UK and across Europe and the world.
We’d love you to join us as we continue our journey as marketing and design specialists. Remember, we’re only a phone call or email away, it’s always good to talk…
