VGC

Helping labour recruitment agency stand out from the crowd

VGC provides people and delivers projects to leading infrastructure contractors working on major projects across the UK such as HS2 and Hinkley Point C.

 

VGC wanted to redefine its brand narrative to reflect its reputation for delivering high quality, cost effective solutions through long lasting client partnerships matched by a commitment to creating social value. The company needed a strong creative partner to help make this happen.

New Brand Style

 

ICG worked closely with senior management to evolve the logo and brand narrative.

 

We simplified the logo to deliver greater impact and work more effectively on digital channels. We retained the warm red of the existing brand and introduced a softer secondary colour scheme in place of flat black and greys.

 

We took the letter ‘g’ from VGC to introduce a new strapline called ‘go beyond’ - positioning VGC as leading industry debate and going beyond.

Accessibility and Brand Consistency

 

Given VGC’s broad audience demographic, there was a clear focus on ensuring all elements of the new branding met guidance outlined in the UK Association for Accessible Formats.

 

It was important that the narrative included the language of everyday use and was easy for people to digest.

 

All elements of the branding and brand narrative were outlined in a new set of brand guidelines which provided guidance on colour palettes, fonts, typography, photography, icons, infographics and copy style for everything from Powerpoint presentations to client newsletters.

Internal Communications

 

In an organisation where teams are working on sites across the UK, good internal communications are vital to advise, inform and engage.

 

ICG work with VGC’s marketing team to produce staff e-newsletters with information about safety, project successes, charity partnerships and careers.

 

We also work with VGC to help deliver internal communications including campaigns about specific topics such as hand safety.
