How we work

We like working on projects for a diverse range of clients with consumer or business facing brands in tourism, publishing, education, economic development, luxury consumer goods and life sciences.

Our exploration workshops and insight reports help you understand complex markets and audiences to build a foundation of knowledge that helps us prepare digital marketing strategies and make evidence-based creative decisions.

Let's work together to bring your ideas for products, services or changes to the marketplace via the development of brand identities, creative print, websites and e-commerce solutions.

“Makermet came up with creative ideas and were responsive to comments and suggestions from the partners, getting client agreement at every stage. Their knowledge of print and digital formats, and social media was key to developing accessible content and helping the campaign go further. I would definitely work with them again, and would recommend them to others.”

Nottingham is recognised as one of 25 cities in the worldwide UNESCO Creative Cities network. Their website and activities promote the vibrant literary community in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Securing our position as digital partner in 2016, a detailed exploration of the opportunity and target audience followed, which helped establish a fresh creative direction for the relaunch of Nottingham City of Literature's online presence; their vibrant and exciting website features a powerful events calendar managed via CraftCMS, flexible publishing tools, and literary resources for all.

Pebble Magazine

Whether it’s design, ethical fashion, slow food or eco-travel, pebble magazine features brands and individuals pulling together in the direction of positive change.

Makermet helped founder Georgina Wilson-Powell's vision for pebble magazine become a reality in 2016. Following brand exploration and marketing strategy, a user experience that supported the publications values was tested with the target audience before launch with a bespoke Craft content management system. We continue to support pebble as their partner in print and digital marketing.
