“We engaged Elastic initially to audit our brand. They spent a lot of time listening and researching our business and market, feeding back their findings in a clear, well thought out fashion, jargon free. Challenging the status quo, recommending change at the foundation – in order to harness greater strength of brand. Elastic were bold and saw things from the customers’ perspective. Within a few weeks hspc had a bright and fresh new brand, with overwhelmingly positive feedback, enabling us to build on our market share.”

The Brief

HSPC approached Elastic to give their brand a much needed refresh, and bring them in line with competitors. They required a new brand applied to: a new logo, printed collateral and a website.

The logo needed to be practical and used across a range of branded materials including print and web. A simple yet bold friendly looking branding identity was created, firmly placing them as a strong contender in the highlands and islands property market.

“Elastic were bold and saw things from the customers perspective.”

Reinforcing the HSPC brand on TV

HSPC have a strong market share of the Highland region but are never complacent. With digital advertising already performing well, the HSPC team were keen to reach a wider audience via regional TV advertising. Elastic created, produced and delivered a joyful mini campaign of 3 animated adverts for broadcast on STV live and VoD channels.

With many options for demographic and regional targeting – and with a wide range of lower cost production techniques – TV is more affordable than you may think and is well within reach for small to medium brands.

The Results

Since the brand refresh, hspc has seen an 18% increase in sales on properties sold by member firms, and a 15% increase in traffic to the hspc website. This has boosted their position within the highlands and islands market in regards to property, and have become instantly more recognisable.

“The Elastic team are a powerhouse of creativity, professionalism, they understand what is happening culturally and how a business can tap into that, having worked with various marketing companies for many years I have found them exceptional.”
