Wellingborough company launches new design agency
Agencypds was developed on the back of the rapid growth in the design department of Print Data Solutions, where the company now showcases its creative expertise in a dedicated, newly-built studio and via its own website www.agencypds.com.
Founder of Print Data Solutions, and now agencypds, Nick Shelton said, “Design has become such a significant part of our offer to customers, and creative work for our studio has grown in volume and variety so much over the last few years, that we have decided to create our own dedicated agency to handle clients’ requirements. We are proud of the skills and expertise we have developed within the team and are delighted to offer full-service design provision within the PDS family under our new brand.”
Studio manager Ian Knighton said, “We are an approachable and friendly team with experience in print, digital, video, packaging and point of sale. We are excited to be able to showcase our skills in so many different sectors, and we’re delighted to have opened the doors to our new agency and look forward to meeting the design challenges of our new and existing clients.”
As part of Print Data Solutions, agencypds is unique in Northamptonshire because it also offers access to expertise in print management, branded merchandise, and fulfilment and logistics services.
The company has also branched out into the realm of manufacturing with its video in print product, vue tv. PDS has invested in new machinery to enable the business to embed video screens into printed collateral including brochures, business cards and point of sale materials. Capabilities within agencypds mean that clients can also benefit from bespoke design for vue tv products.
Nick said, “Agencypds has the experience and strength to stand alone on the merits of its design and creative services. High quality design underpins all our services, from print to merchandise, and from websites to video marketing. Agencypds offers clients the opportunity to commission design-only projects, or to bring all their requirements under one roof as part of a 360° solution.”
