On 8th October 2015 Raphael Design were delighted to host a party at the Lichfield Garrick. The evening was primarily held to thank customers of the design agency for their continued support and the Raphael team were delighted that fifty local business people were able to attend on the night.
Throughout the event Raphael Design premiered the company’s new corporate branding and also launched its Nettl Web Studio; the latest addition to the arsenal of marketing services it already offers to local businesses.
As Clare Lubrano, one of the Director’s of Raphael Design commented;
For the last 22 years we have been helping businesses promote themselves effectively with our key service areas of design, print, exhibition products and promotional gifts.
However we recognise that in this day and age, an online presence is probably the most important marketing tool for every business. Plus, there is increasing pressure for companies to ensure their websites are mobile compatible. We are confident that our Nettl web studio, which is backed by printing.com, will enable us to offer beautiful websites combined with great functionality and flexibility. It is an exciting time for the company, as with this new service we can enhance the support we provide to our customers to help raise their profile and increase their sales.
Local MP Craig Tracey was able to take time out his busy schedule to open the event proceedings. For Craig this was something of a ‘homecoming’, as not only did he run a successful insurance brokers in Lichfield for many years prior to his election to Parliament, but he is also Patron of the Lichfield Garrick. In his welcome address Craig endorsed the importance of local companies working together to strengthen the business community in Lichfield.
It would appear that the partygoers took this advice on board as plenty of networking took place throughout the evening. In addition all enjoyed delicious food and refreshments with the Theatre Bar offered the perfect ambiance for the event.
To round off the evening all the guests were able to see a performance of the ballet Coppelia performed by the Vienna Festival Ballet Company. Indeed, as a result, it would appear that several clients of Raphael Design have become converts to the art of ballet. Ian Morley, Managing Director of Apramo UK Ltd confessed ‘As a Ballet “virgin” I did not know what to expect but I was very impressed.’
The team at Raphael Design would like to say a massive thank you firstly to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedule to attend the party, and secondly to Aimee Flower and the fabulous team at Lichfield Garrick for ensuring everything ran smoothly on the night.
