Who are HH Global?
HH Global are global leaders in brand campaign management, with dedicated professionals in over 29 offices around the world serving clients and their agencies in more than 50 locations, across the US, Latin America, Europe, India & Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
What did they need?
A new website to maximise their online potential, building upon their new brand launch and reflecting their growing success, by providing a more content rich site to connect more effectively with target audiences.
What did we provide?
Working in partnership with HH Global’s lead brand and marketing agency brandthing, we delivered a fully content managed site designed to be vibrant, modern and promote the company’s new branding – with a variety of flexible templates to allow for a range of unique pages for different sections of the site.
The Content Management System we implemented gives administrators the flexibility to easily add, modify and delete the site’s content and can be locked down so individual administrators only have access to update specific sections. Every element of the site can be changed by HH Global’s web administrators – so the website can change, develop and grow with the company.
The functionality of the site is engineered to provide the greatest possible experience for users. Fully browser tested and mobile friendly, the site is accessible from any device and any location. Interactivity is key, so the homepage slideshow is not only visually exciting, it provides visitors with the option to click through to a variety of different pages.
HHGlobal.com is visually rich throughout, with videos utilised across the site and eye-catching images used in page banners, body content, news articles and in slideshow format – giving users plenty of reasons to keep browsing the copy.
HH Global required a high quality website to reflect the high quality work and services they provide for their clients – and we worked closely together to deliver a site that HH Global, The Energy Cell and brandthing can be proud of.

Another success story for The Energy Cell team with the launch of the new Jack Tighe website!
The site we’ve created is designed to reflect the company’s high standards of service and solutions online, strongly branded & professional, clearly representing Jack Tighe Ltd as one of the UK’s market leaders in their field of expertise.
The old site was built in Flash, which didn’t give the business the flexibility they needed to update, edit and add information to the site:
The new site has an easy to use Content Management System, giving the company a site that can be self-maintained to minimise ongoing support costs and enable easy, quick updates of the site including pages, text and images. The site also clearly promotes their key service areas; coating, blast cleaning and painting and commercial decorating, as well as their environmental solutions.
With strong calls to action, the new solution contains a wealth of informative content to reflect the range of solutions, the years of expertise and experience in the industry and the personal service and advice provided by Jack Tighe Ltd with attractive, eye catching images that encourage visitors to explore the site and find out more.
We also designed the site to cater for the different persona of visitors who could be existing customers, new prospects such as procurement offices and decision makers from target markets within Government, Rail, Petrochemical, Retail and Marine.

From food, to fashion, to furniture, many of Britain’s biggest brands and businesses are capitalising on the boom in national pride by adding a red, white and blue twist to their marketing campaigns.
With the recent Diamond Jubilee and upcoming summer of festivities, it’s impossible to miss the veritable explosion of Union Jacks on the marketing and advertising scene. Now, as the Queen’s Jubilee tour comes to its end, the excess of bunting and royal themed gimmicks are starting to die down – but the emphasis on the summer of sport is still going strong.
Embracing this sense of Britishness in your marketing efforts can be a great way of celebrating what your company is bringing to the mix – whether that’s a summer sale, a new product range or simply your longstanding heritage as a British business.
Before considering tying your marketing in with this sense of national pride, evaluate whether or not your business lends itself to this type of campaign. If your business has a strong background, then summer 2012 is a great opportunity to celebrate with the rest of the country. If being British is not at the heart of your business, it’s probably not the right direction for your marketing efforts – and may make you look like you’re jumping on the bandwagon.
A vintage slant can tap into a sense of nostalgia, a subtly placed flag can gently remind customers of your history and experience and, if skillfully executed, a full-blown campaign can really get your brand noticed. In a time of economic recession, a chance for British celebration is always going to be well received but before contemplating relating any of your campaigns to London 2012, be fully aware of the rules surrounding the use of Olympic reference in advertising*.
Consumer-facing businesses are more likely to benefit than B2B, but a British twist can add real value to any brand if implemented properly – so as with any promotional marketing or new campaign direction, it’s always advisable to get the professionals involved. For some specialist advice, just get in touch with a member of the team here at The Energy Cell – we’ll be able to help move your business in the right direction.
