Website’s may be fragile, survivex.com isn’t

Our digital team have been busy the past 6 months developing EQ Design’s approach to web design’s most talked about development - responsive design - the ability to give a website the power to adapt to the media platform it’s viewed on, whether it be a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. We strive for content first through device independence.

On February 22nd, our digital team launched survivex.com which became Aberdeen’s first ‘truly’ responsive website. Survivex are Aberdeen’s newest and most exciting offshore training specialist and our whole creative team has been involved in developing a range of marketing materials culminating in their new, content driven, richly designed online experience.

Overheard @ EQ Poster 2011

Over the past year, we have been creating a series of posters that ‘celebrate’ the personality and downright weirdness/geekiness/grumpiness/happiness of the studio by illustrating, in the best typographic tradition, our ‘Overheard at EQ’ twitter hashtag @oheq. And as it’s approaching Christmas we have created 2 calendars - a wall and a desktop - celebrating this project that will be given to clients, suppliers and friends alike.

There will be some spare I’m sure, so if you want one to gaze ‘under the bonnet’ at what we say behind closed doors, email mark@eqdesign.co.uk with the funniest ‘overheard’ thing you have been witness to this year. Either that or just say you want one!

Who knows what we’ll do 2012, but keep an eye on @eq_design to find out. In fact, just follow us, plain and simple.

…and breathe.

After a breathless but brilliant Offshore Europe, the studio is finally back to normal. Having worked with our clients on a variety of OE related projects - stands, graphics, presentation, advertising etc. it’s been good to look back and find out from them the kind of quality response they have had since the show ended. The early results are very promising, with ‘their best ever show’ being a common response. In fact, there has been talk of larger stands and increased presence already.

Roll-on 2013…


Follow the ‘Herd’

Next time you are in the area, pay a visit to Herd’s Family Butcher in Insch. As well as taking advantage of their incredible local meat and homemade pies, look around and see how the new brand ID, created by EQ, has been applied and rolled out. Working alongside www.muirinteriors.co.uk our creative team developed the signage, graphics, panels and architectural cues that help give the shop it’s signature character and contemporary feel.
