PROJECT: ONE THING I LOVE ABOUT BRISTOL
CLIENT: EDWARDS ESTATE AGENTS

Edwards are an independent estate agents, based in Bristol. I previously worked on a brand refresh for them, which included the introduction of a new set of sale boards, incorporating my illustrations and those of fellow Drawn in Bristol members.

 

OBJECTIVE

To produce an ongoing set of illustrations for use across Edwards' marketing materials

The theme 'One Thing I Love about Bristol...' was developed as the basis of the campaign, with a new illustration being released quarterly, to be used on postcard flyers and print advertisements. Each illustration depicts a reason given by a member of the Edwards' team as to why Bristol is such a great place to live.

In addition to being a slightly different take on the kind of marketing materials usually produced for an estate agent, it is hoped these will help potential clients see Edwards as approachable and more ‘human’ than the usual perception of estate agents (!)

1. Based around the idea of 'green pockets' - in response to a comment from Managing Director, Mathew Edwards about all the areas of green space throughout the city. ( For an insight of the process involved from initial sketch to the finished artwork of this image, see my blog here )

2. Senior Negotiator, Nick's answer to the question "The shops on Park Street and the guys that skateboard down the middle of the road at the same speed as the cars, sometimes even faster!"

3. My illustrated response to Southville sales team member Helen’s story “…Seeing the SS Great Britain reminds me of my childhood. 35 years ago when she was first brought into dry dock, I donated my 50 pence pocket money to help with the restoration!”
