What does #ff mean? - Twitter Tips

Since doing our Blog post on using Twitter #Hashtags Part 1 we decided to elaborate on some more abbreviated Twitter terms. We’re asked by clients all the time about how they can get involved in Twitter and what all the abbreviated terms mean. I always say that you’re only allowed 140 characters in a tweet so sometimes you need to keep things short and sweet to portray your message. We’ve been asked recently by what is the #ff that they see in their newsfeed every Friday… Well here goes. ...

Tuning Developments Flyer Design

Flyers and Leaflets are a great way to get the word out about you and what you are doing, whether you’re running a promotional sale on a product for your business, advertising for a charity event that will be running in town soon, or a meeting for members of the community about what to do with left-over funds from last year’s school budget. However, it’s important to make sure those flyers get noticed, and with the help of NW Design we can assure you that we will spend the time to create you an eye catching flyer/leaflet that will be too good to be thrown away. A returning customer Tuning Developments LTD Birchwood asked us to create them a new double sided A5 flyer which they could take to a performance tuning show the coming week. The flyers primary aim was to showcase their products and services to potential new customers. We managed to create a leaflet that was eye catching yet informative to the customer. We pride ourselves on our Leaflet and Flyer design, and many hours of design go into every one to make them unique and original. We believe that creative graphic design shouldn't be thrown together and we work closely with the customer to ensure that your design is just right. We even offer an unlimited* amendment policy until its just right. *subject to fair use ...

Now a series of A5 mini brochures

MHA Lighting is an award-winning LED lighting specialists and cover many different industries including lighting for multi-storey car parks to medical sectors. We were asked to design another mini brochure for MHA making a set of 5 so Far and this mini brochure covers LED lighting for manufacturing facilities. These brochures have been proving ever popular for us lately and we believe this is because brochure design is a key component to the marketing of many businesses large and small. Well-designed mini brochures can present a positive image of the firm while providing helpful information about the products or services offered. Another benefit of these small brochures are that they can be area specific which means gone are the days of re-printing 1000’s of brochures because you no longer stocked a product or offered a particular service. ...

Logo and stationery design...because image matters...

With so much competition around in these difficult times, presenting the right image for your business has never been so important. Well designed and printed stationery could be the first step in winning that new client or contract - and may not be as expensive as you think. An attractive logo and business card is not only asthetically pleasing to look at, but can also be the first step in reasurring your customers that you are professional in every aspect of your trade. So many times we've worked with clients who have been using badly photocopied quotations, or cheaply produced business cards to promote themselves. At NW Design we can help give your business that professional look - an investment that could last for many years to come... ...

With Google now dominating the internet the word SEO is ever more frequently used. I’m a firm believer that any company that “promises” number one spot in Google should be avoided. There are ,however, a few things that we can do to aid SEO and I feel that during 2013 we are going to really need to use Google+ and Pages to benefit our web presence. ...

Twitter – The #Hashtag Part 1

So like many; you ventured to the land of Twitter. It’s a vast world and can often be a little confusing to navigate at first. The #hashtag is one of the most important ways of organising twitter information. Anyone can make use of the #hashtag by simply typing “#topic” in a tweet. For demonstration purposes if you were to tweet about reading this blog post, you may say “Reading #nwdesign article on using #hashtags with #twitter.” So anyone searching for #nwdesign, #hashtags or #twitter would see your tweet. Once you’ve created a hashtag, other Twitter users can then use that hashtag in their own tweets to expand the conversation on that topic to a larger audience. Hashtags are created by Twitter users and not Twitter and therefore can be as general “#socialmedia” or as specific “#nwdesign” as desired. ...
