Growing Techniques

Todays marketing landscape is vast and varied and in order to be seen or heard you need to think differently.

Working with you we get the most from all suitable mediums to ensure brands get the desired results.

  • Brand Strategy Development
    At its core, a good branding strategy lists the one or two most important elements of your product or service, describes your company's ultimate purpose in the world and defines your target customer. The result is a blueprint for what's most important to your company and to your customer.
  • Brand Identities
    So ... how's your brand doing? Does your business have a brand identity? If it doesn't -- or your brand isn't as strong as it could be – we can help guide you through the steps to take to define your brand. It may seem like a fluffy concept, this branding business, but we will put some structure around it so your marketing team can get started defining your company's brand.
  • Brand Redesign
    GAP had to go back to their original logo after spending millions on a re-fresh.

    So it’s not always the right thing to do, but, if it is, we are aware of the dangers. We like to work with companies to make subtle changes to positioning, wording, logos and styling. And breath and extend life into a re-positioning.


    We take a considered approach. If the wheel needs re-inventing, then we will. But sometimes you might just have a puncture.
  • Digital Design & Build
    In this brave new digital world, websites sit at the heart of many an effective digital strategy. Of course, the digital landscape is ever evolving reflecting new technologies and their impact on consumer behaviour.

    Building on years of digital experience, The Creative Farm and Pixel Builders remain at the forefront of digital design and development, providing a range of online solutions that look great, are easy to use, but more importantly, deliver results.


    - Brochure site
    - Content management systems (CMS)
    - Ecommerce
    - App design
    - UI and UX design
  • Social Media
    We all use it, but how do you harness its powers? Ask us for a start.

    It's the cornerstone of how brands engage with their audiences. By creating content, games, contests, prize draws, loyalty promotions, and viral campaigns, using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest, we are able to build brand awareness, increase brand reach, and deliver measurable results.

    Tweet us @tweetmoobaaoink or visit facebook.com/MooBaaOink, to learn more on how we can help you. Or you could do it the old fashioned way and pick up the phone or send an email at a push if you prefer.

    - Content Generation
    - Social Games
    - Contests
    - Prize Draws
    - Loyalty Promotions
    - Viral Campaigns
  • Brand & Business Naming
    Ok, so what is in a name.... everything!

    Names project emotion and feelings, aspiration and dreams. But names are subjective. Try naming (or renaming) a business, it’s not easy, and it’s getting more difficult. We can help you, from concept to registration.

    By using our creative skills and business experience, we can help you invent a name that satisfies your emotive and subjective likes, whilst also remaining aligned with your objective brand positioning.
  • Internal Branding
    From the moment a customer walks in through your door, your employees represent your brand. It would be fair to say then that your employees, staff, team, friends, whatever you wish to call them, are your most valuable brand asset.

    Use internal marketing to share your dreams and vision with them, inspire them with your values, motivate them, and then watch them sing your praises from the roof-tops.

    From internal presentations through to training packs, from branding interior spaces through to creating branded stationery, we can provide you with internal branding and design solutions to engage and stimulate your employees and colleagues.
  • Printed Communication
    Some believe that the end is coming for this medium. We believe that this is not the case.

    Just like the world did not end on December 21st as the Mayan’s thought! A competitor of ours produced an online prospectus for a college that failed because people still like the idea of feeling and touching a product.


    Online communications aren’t as tactile. The texture, the smell, the colour, all very important. Being able to reach out and feel a well-crafted printed brochure, direct mail piece or a bespoke letter can convey emotions and meaning that digital cannot.


    From brochures for e-procurment, to annual reports for medical companies, through to direct mail and adverts for Ford Motor Company, we can provide you with the print communications that elicit engagement and positive responses.
  • Video Production
    We’ve been producing video content with our partners for some time, and some say, we’re pretty good at it. However, for most video companies making the video right often comes at the cost of making the right video.

    We start with your objectives and then build a concept and strategy that will not only achieve them, but may inform the production and the edit itself. We will challenge your brief, but only to ensure you get the maximum benefit from your video project.
  • Packaging Design & Production
    Packaging makes your product really appealing.

    From high end meat products to vacuum packed thermal underwear, Sandwich boxes to event goody bags, we create unique branded packaging that carries your message, your product, and our promise that people will not forget about it in a hurry.
  • Customer activation/re-activation
    We are increasingly being bombarded with digital communications; therefore direct mail is redefining its value.

    A well crafted, precisely targeted piece of creative direct mail can open doors when it lands on your desk, or drops into your inbox, or onto your welcome mat.

    From idea development, data purchase and management through to fulfilment, The Creative Farm along with Proco offers a complete direct mail service.

    - Campaign Development
    - Copy Writing
    - data Selection
    - Print Production
    - Fulfilment
  • Print Production
    We are proud to use ProCo the best print communications producer in the UK bar none, they have a meticulous eye for detail and offer an excellent proofing service and always go the extra mile. We also cast our eye over every piece of print work we complete, ensuring that only print work that meets ours and ProCo’s high standards are released into the public domain. Have a peek at www.ProCo.com you will not be disappointed.
  • Annual Report Design
    A well designed annual report affords you the opportunity to positively influence people, giving you the chance to describe, explain, reward, inspire, galvanize, give hope and vision.


    It’s fair to say, annual reports are an important document requiring precision and quality.


    Using professional layout theory, content written with precision and clarity, powerful photography, and great graphic design, we are able to craft annual reports that bring your previous year to life.

    - Annual Reports
    - Annual Reviews
    - Investment Information
  • Brand & Corporate Guidelines
    Brand guidelines aren’t sexy, but they don’t have to be. They need to be an easy guide for employers and partners to interpret the new you.

    Our job is to break down the changes of your new messaging, positioning or vision. We can include your overall story. But whether you are new or old or big or small, we can provide suitable guidelines that will help you, your affiliates, customers, partners and staff remain on brand, all the time.

    If you need a set of brand guidelines, call The Barn today on 01904739982
  • Logo Design
    Your logo is not your brand but should be intrinsically linked.

    It is incredibly important, in many ways it defines you and what you represent. It is what people first see on your building, in emails, letters, adverts, press releases and your website. It is you, and it needs to be instantly recognisable.

    At The Creative Farm, we create logos that reflect you. Logos that become memorable. Logos that define what you are all about.

Playing against the stars

Here Ian is getting stuck in at Harrogate Town charity football tournament playing on team STRATA. The event at the club’s CNG Stadium was in aid of Little Hiccups, a support group led by parents for children and families with special needs and disabilities.

Quote from Mr N: “It was a privilege to play with this lot (in black) on Saturday, unfortunately we had to play against this lot (in white, and yes that is Gus Poyet & Seb Carrol!) so it was never going to end well!
