As part of its on-going campaign with Camps Solicitors, Delineo has created a range of engaging multimedia materials, enabling the client to provide vital compensation guidance to personal injury sufferers in repair garages across the country.
The materials aim to make compensation advice more accessible to injured parties. The move follows recent legislation which means garages can no longer personally refer customers to compensation specialists.
Continuing under the ‘This is Campensation’ creative concept devised by Delineo in previous press campaigns, the on-premise materials aim to demonstrate the brand’s approachable nature to a new audience in a highly convenient location.
Combining leaflets and promotional posters with interactive branded tablet consoles, the campaign educates individuals on their legal options while highlighting Camps Solicitors as a trusted compensation expert.
As Delineo’s Managing Director, Nick Melvin, explains;
“The change in the law left an obvious gap for unfortunate individuals who’ve been in an accident and may not know where to turn to seek compensation. Delineo’s ongoing work with Camps Solicitors strives to emphasise that the brand is there for the consumer and this latest work conveys this message to potential claimants at the point when they most need to hear it.”]]>
Delineo is proud to announce that it has been shortlisted for nine different awards categories in this year’s Recommended Agency Register Awards.

Delineo’s Managing Director Nick Melvin reflected on the nominations, commenting;
“There’s nothing more gratifying for us as an agency than knowing that our clients recognise the quality of the service we provide and are willing to recommend us to others.

Through the development of arresting rich media content, including animated Infographics, video features and audio soundbites, Delineo has enabled our clients to effectively engage with an online audience.
Clients including Aldermore Bank and numero, a major CRM solutions provider, have charged Delineo with designing these rich media projects, while also managing the online distribution via social media platforms.
The concise yet captivating style of the rich media pieces is particularly crucial in the highly specialist B2B markets in which these companies operate. In this environment, information must be presented in a concise, yet captivating, manner in order to resonate with time-constrained professionals. Highlights of this content include an interactive webpage for numero and a series of YouTube videos for Aldermore Bank.
Thanks to this refreshing media style, Delineo has been able to create accessible, engaging content on topics as complex and diverse as asset finance and mobile customer interaction management.
Delineo’s Creative Director, Leigh Sheridan, commented on the work, stating;
“This innovative content really showcases the value of having a full creative team within the agency. As each campaign piece is devised alongside other elements of the brand’s full advertising strategy and incorporates key brand values, the result is a more cohesive campaign with a greater overall impact.”]]>

Creative content designed by Delineo has now gone up in Co-operative Bank branches nationwide, encouraging consumers to take a fresh look at their finances in the New Year.
The campaign follows in the spirit of the current ‘Here for you for life’ Co-operative bank branding, inviting individuals to visit their local branch to discuss how the bank can help them achieve whatever goals they have for the future.
Poster content from the campaign draws particular attention to the Co-operative’s new mobile banking app, in addition to future planning services including loans and AXA financial advice.
As explained by Delineo’s Creative Director Leigh Sheridan,
“The campaign direction aims to offer a more approachable take on the concept of customers reviewing their personal finances in January. It was important to convey that whatever aim or project a customer has in mind, the bank is happy to listen and advise on the services available.
We’ve had a really positive reaction from branch managers and in-store employees so far, which is very rewarding and a great indication that the creative team have really met the brief on this one.”
Work is now underway on the next round of in-branch creative for the Co-operative Bank brand in early February.
Delineo enabled Bolton Council to strengthen ties with local consumers this Christmas, through a comprehensive social media campaign aimed at encouraging shoppers to visit the city.
The campaign ran in support of the Town Centre’s overarching promotional drive to promote Bolton’s ‘Proper Town Centre’, advocating the town’s many benefits over characterless out-of-town shopping complexes.
Delineo’s social media team focused on generating a sense of community for the town centre in the online world, communicating with local individuals in real-time to drive engagement and reinforce the town’s approachable brand identity.
This was combined with the creation and distribution of relevant, captivating content to publicise the town’s various attractions, including rich media campaign videos featuring real Bolton retailers.
Through these combined activities, Delineo delivered over 600,000 social media impressions for the brand over the course of the two-month campaign, attracting 810 interactions with local consumers. This strong connection with the specific target market led to 1377 link clicks, driving numerous consumers to the campaign site and the websites of local businesses.
Reflecting on the campaign’s success, Delineo’s Social Media Campaign Manager, Tom Mason comments;
“We’re delighted to have had the opportunity to work together with core pillars of the Bolton community to foster a shared festive spirit within the local townspeople and sustain local business. This campaign is proof that social media campaigns don’t necessarily have to operate on a huge scale and provide a great way of reaching a highly specialised audience.”]]>
Delineo are delighted to report that its latest creative for Camps Solicitors has elicited a strong reaction from consumers, in a new national campaign designed to drive enquiries for the brand.
During 2012, Delineo developed a variety of creative campaigns for the compensation specialists, with creative featuring across radio, outdoor and press formats.
To conclude a successful year though, Delineo were keen to push the boundaries in creating a campaign with even greater impact. The campaign, which appeared in the classified advertising section of full-colour national newspapers, needed to rapidly communicate Camps Solicitors’ brand message in order to stand out from competing promotions.
Delineo’s creative team decided on the ‘This is Campensation’ concept, using light-hearted humour to promote Camps Solicitors as a more approachable alternative compared to other accident compensation firms.
Delineo’s Creative Director, Leigh Sheridan, explains;
“We wanted to reinforce the fresh, upbeat brand identity established through the ‘If you’ve been bing bang walloped’ campaign for Camps Solicitors, but take it to the next level.
This new campaign was designed to speak directly to consumers and convey that Camps Solicitors will take a stand to help them find a positive way forward following an unfortunate experience.”]]>
