As we enter week 3 of the UK lockdown, here is a personal note from Laura and her message to everyone at this time:
I’m Laura Bevan and I am Oak Creative’s Studio Director. I stepped into the role on 1st February 2020 and as many of you know, Caroline has now retired from Oak Creative after 30 successful years. I have been part of the Oak team for 4 years, handling enquiries, quotations and the studio workflow. Coronavirus has undoubtedly been a huge and unexpected challenge for every business, posing much uncertainty. I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on a plan of action for Oak Creative in the coming months, as well as continuing to plan for the future.
Oak Creative has a vast portfolio which spans across businesses from all sectors. From food and drinks producers, county-wide schemes/organisations, tourism attractions, charities and corporates. Some of our customers have been affected more than others during the last month, but this global issue is affecting everyone in some shape or form. One thing which is true to all businesses is that your brand is one of your most valuable assets. If your brand is upheld throughout these trying times, then you will maintain direction and strengthen your reputation.
As we start to imagine what life after lockdown might be like, I encourage everyone to use creativity in their thinking. In the past month, so many Kentish businesses have already shown so much creativity in their response to lockdown – adapting their products, services, marketing, and even customers. We are big believers that creativity is key to success.
Like many businesses, we have shifted our focus too. I maintain big ambitions for Oak Creative, but right now our key focus is to help Kent’s businesses succeed.
Our message is simple – Oak Creative is here to help. We remain a trusted creative partner for businesses in Kent. We can help your business and your brand to look great and communicate clearly, through any form of design. You may need our help now to communicate your new business model, or in a few months time once the market returns. Either way, we are here ready to offer you a friendly approachable service when you need it.
I would like to wish you all luck navigating your way through the current climate. Stay safe, and well, looking forward to catch up with you soon.
