CLIENTS

  • “Having worked for many years helping develop brands both domestically and internationally, I have found that combining highly creative design with a fast and immediate client response is a significant challenge. The loft is exceptional in their patience and process to extract what the client wants, articulate the options effectively and then deliver the elements to meet tight timescales and budgets. They continually go the extra mile and add considerable energy, insight and value throughout.”

    Iain MacRitchie, Private Equity Chair, Social Entrepreneur, Growth & Change Specialist
  • “THE LOFT was an integral part of the Altia story, we worked together for many years where they were instrumental in creating our global brand. They contributed to countless projects, worked across the entire organisation and provided real support throughout our business journey as a growing company.

    They were a tremendous help, particularly in the earlier years, when our company’s growth was at its most rapid and things were changing every day. They supported then, as they always have done, by contributing to the company’s strategies with great energy, insight and creativity.

    Always grounded in the commercial realities of what we were doing and always with the bigger picture in mind.

    Good fun too, highly recommended.”

    Ian Watson, CEO & Co-Founder of Altia Solutions
  • “We worked very closely with THE LOFT for many years and they brought so much value to our global organisation in many different ways. Everything from overhauling our digital presence to supporting what we do with large automotive OEMs, even working very closely with myself to re-think how we present our own company’s position, philosophy and expertise.

    They’re always brimming with energy, ideas and a service-oriented approach to what they’re doing. We became so close, at one point, they even moved in.

    Very enjoyable to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.”

    Alan Meldrum, Global Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Client Services
  • “The creativity of ‘The Loft’ has been absolutely first class. We were blown away by the work they produced for us and their friendly approach and customer service made them a pleasure to work with. Suffice to say we are looking forward to working with them again on future projects.”

    NICHOLAS PRAG, CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP EXECUTIVE, NETWORK RAIL
  • “Aqualisa have been working with the loft for over a year now on a huge range of projects – everything from packaging concepts to brochure designs, sales-decks, photography and other marketing communications. They provide creative solutions, sometimes to extremely tight deadlines, which has helped our company to drive forward with its own commercial objectives. essentially an extended part of our team. Highly recommended.”

    Simon Cornelius, Senior Product Manager, Aqualisa Products Ltd
  • “We’ve worked with the loft for a number of years now, and in that time they’ve helped us win several pieces of new business with some of the biggest and most recognisable brands in the world.

    They always get it straight away, have a great sensitivity to brands and are willing to go the extra mile. They can mould PowerPoint pitch decks in ways we’ve never seen before.

    Finally, we are always working towards incredibly tight deadlines at Wave and our overnight shifts, complete with last-minute amends, have become legendary.

    An integral part of our pitch team.”

    Linda Gallagher, Managing Director at Wave Agency
  • “The loft were instrumental in our re-branding exercise at Beeks FX as we continue to grow our international business, they went above and beyond when working to a tight deadline.

    Gordon McArthur, CEO of BEEKS FX VPS
  • “Production of our Annual Sustainability Report used to be one of the most stressful jobs in the marketing calendar due to its complexity and tight deadline.

    Dr Anna Strachan, Policy Officer, Obesity Action Scotland

    CHRIS MCMAHON, MANAGING DIRECTOR, THE LEVEN CAR COMPANY
  • “THE LOFT DESIGNED AND BUILT A TREMENDOUS WEBSITE FOR CONSILIUM WHICH VERY NICELY SUMMARISES WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE ARE ABOUT AS CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS.

    John Blair, Partner, Consilium Chartered Accountants

These images are used in publications, product brochures and on our website.”

    James Woodrow, Petroleum Experts Limited
  • “The process we went through to derive the ‘While We Wait’ concept art was very enjoyable indeed. The invite to attend at the inception and final stages made me really feel a part of the process and collaborating with the loft team on the details of materials, shadow and final photography made me really feel my needs were catered for. Every time I look at the results I feel a real attachment and pride.”
