"SNS Group has worked closely with SSE since March 2014 on the redevelopment of our flagship internal communications channel. We now produce a monthly print and digital publication that meets the needs of 20,000 employees across the UK and Ireland and consistently wins positive feedback. From the outset, SNS Group has provided a second-to-none service encompassing concept development, intuitive design, photography, digital implementation, printing, fulfilment and distribution. I would recommend SNS Group as a trusted partner for design, photographic or publishing projects on any scale."

Typography, Colour and Contrast

Every graphic design project is different. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach if you want to create the perfect content every time, and a range of practical decisions needs to be made when delivering any digital design brief. Choices regarding typography, colour and contrast can make or break any project.

Typography represents the voice of a brand in written form. The typeface, font and overall appearance of any text used across internal or external communications has a profound impact on the message it conveys. Typography can create and project your brand’s style and character, but it’s also critical in evoking emotion – striking the right mood for any piece of content.

Similarly, colour is far from simply an aesthetic issue. The use of colour in graphic design has a significant effect on the impact of any publications or graphics. The right colours help to generate the right emotions in your target audience. These emotions subsequently impact on decision making, ensuring your audience is likely to be more receptive to your message. Balancing the contrast between design elements and whitespace is also critical to graphic design. Make a graphic too busy and it implies confusion or unprofessionalism. Conversely, if content is too plain, it won’t be as effective in terms of conveying important information.      

Creating and Complementing Brand Identity

Even the most beautiful, eye-catching piece of content can be useless to an organisation if it doesn’t dovetail with their brand identity. Successful digital design helps to create, support and bolster a brand’s character. It ensures their presence online is clear, consistent and on-message across the board.

Branding through graphic design provides a way to blend your online and offline activities. Dynamic design can ensure your communications via social media and other online channels matches and supports your real-world branding.

SNS Group’s extensive experience has allowed us to witness first-hand the results top-class online content can accomplish. We’ve worked on projects with major clients that have helped them to achieve a whole new level of engagement with audiences who always respond well to strong and recognisable branding. It helps to build familiarity with a company – and from familiarity comes trust. Someone who trusts an organisation is far more likely to believe their messaging, potentially rewarding them with new business.

Aiding the User Experience

One key difference between design in the digital world and print design is interactivity. Consumers of social media content or marketing emails can directly interact with these communication tools. In fact, that interaction and response is often what the brand behind the content is hoping to accomplish.

When designing digital content, graphic designers must consider the user experience alongside aesthetic appeal. They need to predict how the content they produce will encourage or aid recipients in taking appropriate or desirable actions. Marketing emails should compel readers to visit a website, while landing pages aim to move visitors into a sales funnel.

The designers at SNS Group have worked with varied clients on all kinds of projects, so we understand how to produce stunning visuals that also deliver results. One of the beauties of digital design is the ability to update and tweak graphics and publications in real-time. The way users interact with marketing materials can be tracked and analysed. You can see what makes them click and engage – and also determine what doesn’t. That makes it easy to tweak content to better dovetail with your audience’s preferences. 

Tailoring Design for Different Channels

The online environment presents businesses and organisations with a whole host of new opportunities. Diverse channels such as email and influencer marketing make it easier for any firm to get themselves noticed. After all, graphic design is just as important in the digital world as in the physical one.

Having said that, publications and marketing materials shared online need to be tailored to suit the channel they’re shared through. Effective social media updates won’t necessarily be perfect as email content. In the same way, a staff newsletter shouldn’t be exactly the same as a digital magazine.

It’s only by working with the best graphic designers, like those at SNS Group, that you can be sure your communications are on point. The SNS design team know just how to leverage the different elements of digital design, producing messaging that’s perfect for any given channel. We work closely with our clients to help them define their digital strategy, before using our skills and expertise to deliver that strategy via intelligent and modern design. It’s why major blue-chip brands across the UK trust us with the graphic design elements of their online communications.
