Our work is incredibly varied. We are often confronted with a variety of challenges that require exacting standards and innovative solutions. From writing and producing 150 ‘how to’ films for Sony, to a three-year documentary covering the design, build and installation of one of the largest North Sea oil installations in the UK.

We pride ourselves in having long-standing relationships with our clients and are happy to be involved in all aspects of the production process. We help with ideas generation, storyboarding and script consultancy to location and talent scouting, filming, editing and producing motion graphics.

We approach client confidentiality and our trade craft with great care, with password protected computers and drives. Projects are always double backed up and archived for at least 5 years.

Our sound-proofed studio is fully kitted out for green screen filming, audio recording and editing. Based in central Surrey, we’re ideally suited for Heathrow, Gatwick and Waterloo Station is a 40min train journey away.

When Beaucroft began in 1987 we were a typographic design agency, and nothing else. In fact we were known, cunningly, as “Beaucroft Typographic”. We now work across all media so the T-word was dropped. But fear not, we still place good design at the core of our work and our eagle eyes will spot a typo or rogue double space at twenty paces.

Are you a start-up? We’ll work with you to create a brand from the ground up that will communicate your company messaging. If you’re an established organisation we’ll work seamlessly with your marketing department producing print collateral − everything from logos, business cards, letterheads, white papers, product flyers, invites and brochures. We also produce large scale design for events such as posters, banner stands and exhibition graphics.

The creative process always starts with a chat, a pencil and a piece of plain paper. Feel free to drop us a line and see how we can help promote your company!

Our photographic services range from product shots, formal corporate headshots, more relaxed, natural portraits or dynamic image for the press as well as landscapes and aerial. We can come to you and shoot on location or use our fully-equipped studio.

Is your time at a premium? Our photographers are accustomed to shooting around busy work schedules, as well as making the session as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

Our photographers also provide high quality coverage of corporate events and conferences, and are experienced in covering high profile and VIP events where unobtrusive reportage photography is a priority.

Whether you require studio or location photography, we have a keen eye for detail and make sure we don’t miss that perfect shot. So, how can we help you?

We ask the question – where do you want to be online? Our experience of designing, developing and supporting web sites and interactive apps will help you reach your goals. Straight-talking and jargon-busting, we’re here to help you keep up with the growing needs of the digital landscape.

Our eye-catching and user-friendly websites are built using a versatile content management system (or CMS) that allows users to edit their site without the need of specialist technical skills. To ensure all users have the best experience, we check the site works across mobile, tablet and desktop browsers.

We can also offer cost-effective hosting solutions. You may also have an established digital strategy, so we’ll ensure your social media interacts seamlessly within the website.

Come and talk to us about how can we help you achieve an improved online presence.
