Andy Murray

After a number of years working as a partner in a successful landscape design consultancy, Andy Murray was going solo and approached Forde + Nicol to create an identity and website for his new business.

In a competitive market it is important to be easily recognised and remembered, humour is a useful tool that can assist memory recall. The copy we developed for Andy’s business cards made light of the fact he shares the same name as a world famous tennis star with a long list of accolades. In contrast to the light hearted copy the production of the cards was very sophisticated and restrained. Tactile stocks duplexed together with a blind embossed monogram detail created an unforgettable impression on prospect clients.

The website design features sumptuous images of Andy’s projects presented in a¬†functional and easy to navigate interface design. Updates are easily maintained by Andy using the sites content management system and we are happy to report the new business is thriving!
