Matm’s lengthy experience of working at a wide range of events ensured we found the best possible photographer to support our client Panther, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of powered access. We knew this event was a bit different, especially when we were dealing directly with Adrian Beckett, the Colour Sergeant of the Band of the Welsh Guards.

It was clear there was a requirement to meet the very highest standards, in terms of technical performance and safety, expected at such a prestigious event. We made sure that our photographer was fully compliant with stringent security requirements and that he could gain access to all the areas needed – we hope you agree that he came back with a stunning shot?

Subtle Illustrations of Shropshire Tile Landmarks

Thursday 5th August 2010   by Neil Dicken

Much Wenlock IllustrationsWhen Much Wenlock Festival were looking for a series of building illustrations for their Tile Trail leaflet – matm produced a number of simple interpretative drawings of famous Shropshire landmarks.

Neil Dicken, Designer commented “There is nothing worse than picking up a leaflet, to find inside a map that has so much information that you really don’t know where to look first. More often than not it is the choice of imagery that makes a map confusing; the contrast of colours, and the varied size and shapes. A simple and effective way to combat such a problem is to use a simple illustrative style that unifies all the different locations.”
