We were delighted with our new building brochures produced by the Ark. The finished products were well presented, fresh and modern. They both stuck to the brief and impressed us with ideas and innovation. When presented with a wide array of photography, the Ark selected the most effective designs and layouts and produced a fantastic brochure. We’re also particularly impressed with the print quality which combined with the excellent presentation of pictures and graphics combines to make a very effective marketing tool.
