Back when the Yellow Pages was a much bigger publication (and before Google started telling us all what to do), Tinstar ran an annual display ad for the Hampshire region. Yellow Pages was always somewhat hit and miss – but one day it hit in a big way.
Vicky Patten, Director of L’ANZA Europe, UK distributor of L’ANZA hair care products, was searching for a graphic design agency to work with in the area. We weren’t Vicky’s first call, but we were the first to actually pick up the phone.
After meeting, we embarked on our first ad design project for L’ANZA. Since then we have created an enormous amount of work for the client, including full page display ad campaigns for the UK Health & Beauty press, an extensive exhibition stand for Salon International, product packaging design and a website featuring the full range of hair products that the company has to offer.
If you were to twist my arm to make me identify my favourite project, I would have to say the video showreel that we created for the Salon International exhibition (see below). This was created to showcase four separate hair & beauty companies, all under the EDS (European Distribution Services Ltd) parent company. The creation of the video required bringing to bear a number of disciplines: graphic design, video editing and video effects work.
We always look forward to the next L’ANZA project – a fantastic client to work with ever-more creative briefs.
