Media Relations

Success in engaging the media is not always determined by charm, personality or even the issues to be communicated. It relies upon extensive preparation and training. 1Up Communications’ strategies are designed to grow all profiles of your business operations, using extensive knowledge and understanding of the media.

Achieving optimum communication and marketing objectives requires activities not being completed ad hoc in isolation. Instead, making the most of your investment means a commitment to razor sharp focus on strategy to reach across the entire organisation and incorporate every interaction with your stakeholders – both internal and external.

An ideal media relations strategy is considered against your business goals and corporate vision – operating ad hoc in isolation otherwise has significant potential detrimental effects upon a business brand.

Corporate Communication Design

The manner in which design and information-development communicates with stakeholders is critically important, it is for this reason corporate communication design serves as a critical function to most businesses. Market share is often determined by images which are used to communicate value and relevance to stakeholders. High quality design solutions are needed across all mediums of the business, with an emphasis on corporate branding.
