The Kaleidoscope Plus Group Ambassador Pack by CWDmedia

CWDmedia takes stock following busy year with new clients

The end of another year approaches, and what a busy year it has been!  So busy, in fact, that I’ve struggled to find time to keep the CWDmedia site updated periodically, which is of course what Google likes when it indexes your site for its search engine results.

It has been a pleasure working with regular clients including Xtreme Fitness, Farmer Phil’s Festival, Sweetcheeks Beauty Boutique and more, while it was great to welcome on board a number of new clients across a diverse number of industries:

The Kaleidoscope Plus Group

The Kaleidoscope Plus Group Gala Ball 2018West Bromwich-based charity The Kaleidoscope Plus Group has been promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in the Midlands and further afield for over 45 years.  #TeamKPG engaged CWDmedia to work on a number of projects in 2018, including key publications (corporate & ambassador brochures, annual report and more), fundraising toolkits and social media support.  The latter involved me providing photography services at several fundraising events across the West Midlands.  I even got involved in the fundraising myself, raising over £1,500 for the charity by shaving off my beloved beard – a feat which got special mention at #TeamKPG’s Annual Gala Ball, for which CWDmedia was a sponsor.

Double Vision Mobile Bars

Shropshire-based Double Vision Mobile Bars provides quality mobile bars, hog roasts and candy carts for all manner of functions across the county.  They engaged CWDmedia to redesign its company website, the anticipated launch of which is in early 2019.

Jordan Red

As mentioned in my previous update, Jordan Red is an exciting new band whose founding member Dan Baker is a long time client of CWDmedia.  I was engaged to develop their initial logo ideas into a finished article and create their official website which launched in December 2018, with expansion phases anticipated in 2019.

Rosie O’Sullivan

Rosie O'Sullivan 'The Nashville Sessions' EPBirmingham singer Rosie O’Sullivan first rose to prominence when she wowed the judges on Britain’s Got Talent with her soulful voice, prompting David Walliams to say “I just want to hear you sing all night” and Simon Cowell to comment “Absolutely bloody fantastic!”  CWDmedia first worked with Rosie to design artwork for her 2017 release ‘Tempo’ and the subsequent digital single ‘Time’.

This year Rosie engaged CWDmedia to provide art direction for her new double EP ‘The Nashville Sessions’ and supporting digital single ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’, both of which were showcased during a promotional tour to Nashville itself.

Inar Group

The newest client to join the CWDmedia roster is Stafford-based Inar Group – an engineering and software programming business with an exciting new project set for launch in 2019.  CWDmedia has been engaged to design Inar Group’s corporate website, also set for a 2019 launch.

So in summary, there’s lots going on and some exciting things planned for 2019 already.  I can always do more, however – if you have a requirement for anything design-related, I can probably help.  Get in touch and let’s get to work – happy New Year to you all!

#StandUpAgainstDepression

Merry Christmas one and all!

Now the festive season is well underway I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, not to mention a prosperous and happy New Year.

I’ve made a habit over the past few years of sending CWDmedia-branded Christmas cards to each of my clients. This year, however, I’ve elected to make a donation to a charity that is dear to me instead – the Depression Alliance.

The Depression Alliance brings people together to end the loneliness and isolation of depression. They also campaign to end the stigma of depression and to raise awareness of what it means to live with it. For some, Christmas can be a very lonely time of year and as somebody who has suffered with depression in the past, I’m glad to help in some small way.

If you’re interested, you can read more about the Depression Alliance here.

Have a fantastic Christmas and I look forward to catching up with you in 2015!

CWDmedia support for London Marathon runner

A good friend and former bandmate of mine is running in this year’s London Marathon.

Andy Walker, from Rugby, is raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital as part of a group named Team Awesome.  Together, they are running marathons, mountain races (while carrying 35lb packs), racing rafts, busking in town centres, riding bikes for miles, playing gigs and, in their words, “doing anything we can do to raise as much money as possible.”

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

“The support I have received from Steve at CWDmedia in my various charity fundraising endeavors over the last few years has been amazing,” said Andy, “Each and every time he has stepped up and done what he can to contribute towards the cause. Sir, I salute you!”

It’s a pleasure to lend the support of CWDmedia to the cause and help Andy and the team towards their target.  You can support them too by donating online here.
