I have known Paul for many years and when I had need for a new brand package and website, I turned to him and his team for their help.

Without doubt, Bella are experts in their field and a really enthusiastic and effective team to work with. They assessed our needs quickly and concisely and amazed us with the brand designs and thoughts they presented to us. Our decisions were made incredibly easy with the quality of the work presented to us. Paul is a joy to work with and effective in his communications, detailed in his summaries and importantly a realistic and understanding businessman. I would wholeheartedly recommend Bella to anyone with a need for design and marketing services. They’re good people!

Not only did Bella deliver on time and on budget, he and his team demonstrated and presented work which was creative and interesting for my business audience. Paul clearly listened and understood exactly what I was looking for. This was evidenced by the positive reception of my colleagues and the increase in new business. Paul is easy to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him & Bella.

Simran Johal

Digital Press Content Manager DMD

Bella Design continue to provide our client’s with high quality marketing collateral in particular on more recent projects – The Interchange, Stockport and Wolstenholme Square, Liverpool.

In both cases, they we able to fulfil the brief and create bespoke identities for the properties.

With Wolstenholme Square, Bella had to create a deign which addressed the simple issue that the properties weren’t well known. The newly developed residential buildings around Wolstenholme Square hadn’t been promoted for commercial use on the ground floor, only focusing on the residential element, in spite of the properties being very close to the city’s Food & Beverage  night time circuit.

Bella Design understood that a fresh design needed to be created and assembled into suitable digital marketing collateral. In addition, create an onsite identity and achieve a sense of critical mass by using the branding in a clever cost-effective vinyl wrap around the properties.

More importantly, the result of the marketing campaign has been very positive, with two of the units now let and three under offer, with all five expeced to be trading by Spring this year.

On Interchange Stockport, the brief was slightly different. The Interchange, is already a prominent new building benefiting from a highly prominent location, the requirement was to promote it as a new location suitable for Lifestyle retailing and F&B.

The marketing campaign is still in its early stages, but the branding is now starting to achieve its aim with more occupiers becoming interested in locating to the Interchange.

With marketing collateral in place, together with the development approaching completion, we fully expect to be generating more meaningful enquiries and occupation by the Summer of this year.
