Chris VoyseyBrand Strategy
Retail displays, exhibition spaces, product packaging, corporate identities and websites all have their own demands and responding to these with innovative, fresh thinking that also adds value to the brand is what Chris is all about - and he's been doing exactly that for many years ... for all kinds of businesses.
Understanding the dynamics and mechanics of brand development and the way creative design can communicate values has allowed him to work successfully with many blue-chip and international clients. Having a very practical and hands-on approach has also meant that he's been asked to develop ideas, strategies and solutions for all kinds of demanding business requirements - from corporate events at Wembley Stadium to manufacturing product displays and POS as well as producing creative work for album covers and video production for the music industry. Chris likes a challenge and working with the team at Forge Branding he is instrumental in developing and delivering all kinds of creative solutions for a huge variety of clients.
