Making that extra mile count

By | News, Web

At Garda we pride ourselves on working hard to understand our clients and their commercial challenges. We believe that in order to produce our best work and help our clients succeed, we must immerse ourselves in their world. So we were recently delighted to receive a glowing testimonial from Tekne’s MD, Edd Sevestre, validating our approach and the resulting website we produced for them.

“We approached several companies but it was Garda who impressed us the most. They travelled miles to see us and spent hours talking to our workers to better understand our business.

Garda were very patient with us, guided through every stage, understood what we needed and were able to translate it into a polished and professional website. They certainly went the extra mile.

Our website is very successful in attracting new enquiries and we cannot thank the team enough. ’

We now print Tekne’s brochures and continue to help them win new business. It just goes to show the value of taking the time to listen and understand the realities of each client’s situation. Does your agency go the extra mile for you?

If a job’s worth doing…

..it’s worth doing well. So thought the MD of fit out firm Tekne, one of the UK’s leading specialist joinery firms. Disappointed with the outcome of his recently redesigned website, and prepared to go back to the drawing board, he contacted Garda after admiring a website that we had produced for a similar business.

We proceeded to do what we do best by producing a key message audit that helped us get to the heart of what was important and special about Tekne and their work with some very high profile clients. Read More

This video featuring Emilia Clarke perfectly sums up the value of genuine photography vs. stock imagery. There's absolutely a place for stock imagery, but to truly connect with your customers and raise brand awareness nothing beats genuine photography.
