Gardens for Good is a garden design located in Oxford. They specialise in developing spaces where groups of people can come together and enjoy the benefits of ecologically sensitive outdoor spaces, including sensory gardens, school gardens, memorial gardens and community gardens.
We were commissioned to help Gardens for Good in their relocation from Northamptonshire, and in promoting their forthcoming 'The Power to Make a Difference' exhibition garden. This Silver Medal award-winning garden was exhibited at the nationally acclaimed RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July 2017. We supported this project by developing a cleverly folded broadsheet, with step-by-step unfolding 'reveals' showing how you can develop your own environmentally friendly garden space. This beautiful piece of literature was printed on uncoated, recycled paper and was accompanied by a separate four-page planting list for distribution at the RHS Show.
The broadsheet was designed to be multi-purpose, adding to the cost-benefit of commissioned design and print production. This allows allowed the piece of literature to be used both as a piece of direct mail, and to be given as a handout at seminars delivered by Gardens for Good about sustainability. The folded artwork was designed to be able to act as an envelope to contain business cards or supplementary information specific to the event.
“Working with Ampersandesign has been a fantastic experience. We first decided to meet with them having overhead their talk (enthusiastically!) about design principles and delivery techniques, they seemed to know their stuff and I can now confidently say, having worked with them on several projects, they are experts in their field.
Their passion for design and attention to detail is incredible. They have an endless stream of ideas to create unique and innovative material, which in itself is a valuable asset when working with them. Just as importantly though, they have the ability to foresee and solve potential challenges that may arise during the design and production of complex print projects, making the whole process smooth and efficient.
They have produced exceptionally high quality design material for us that we are proud to share with our clients and prospects. Their services have always represented excellent value for our investment and they have produced finished products to some tight (and very important) deadlines.
The services provided by Ampersandesign have been an asset to our business. Needless to say, we would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality graphic design services."
