Creative marketing and design for value-driven businesses
Alpha Communication has been doing innovative marketing and design work for nearly 30 years. We produce a wide range of communication materials and provide ongoing marketing support. Whether developing a brand identity from scratch or working with our clients’ existing guidelines, we create things that are fresh, exciting and new. Our experienced and enthusiastic team has managed thousands of projects, both on and offline.
We understand the value of values. Whether championing fair trade, building a sustainable planet or campaigning for equal rights – we’ll take the time to understand and appreciate your ethos.
Alpha is a workers’ co-operative and social enterprise. Any surplus we generate is reinvested with the aim of growing our business and creating more local employment and training opportunities. Our core values include co-operation, honesty, equality, fairness and respect. We practise these values ourselves and with every client and supplier we work with.

Creating a successful brand is a co-operative venture between the client and the creative team. Before we design anything we aim to get a good understanding of our client: core values, personality, target markets and key messages. We need to know about the history and current perceptions of the organisation and where it wants to go. We’ve developed brands for clients in sectors as diverse as mental health care, construction and ethical finance.
Well written, smartly designed, perfectly printed items have always been one of our signature dishes. We produce a wide range of magazines, newsletters, brochures, folders and inserts, as well as catalogues, booklets, leaflets and flyers and exhibition material – our creative team knows them all! We can provide excellent editorial services as well as photography, illustration, design, layout, production and distribution management all working on strict deadline. We know about printing – the technical constraints, which environmentally friendly materials to use, what colours to avoid. We provide a full production service for many clients and we also supply print-ready files to clients who prefer to arrange the printing themselves.
The internet didn’t exist when Alpha Communication began, but now websites and social media account for most of our work. We’ve successfully adapted to new media because we’ve stayed focused on communication. Before we create a website we ask our clients what they want to achieve: who they want to visit the website what they expect them to do. Then we design and build a site that delivers. We also manage digital communications for a number of clients, which includes social media, blogger outreach and content development.
We recognise the potential of video as a truly powerful marketing tool. We offer a full range of filming, editing and graphic animation services; working with you to create a video that engages viewers, ensures interaction with your brand and is easy for your target audience to find and share. We can also offer advice and management on video advertising campaigns and using video as part of your content marketing strategy.

Our minds are inherently programmed to respond to colour. They shape our thoughts and emotions. And according to studies, colour affects more than mood – it has the ability to change our buying habits.
