Design apprentice for GGS

Kate Pritchard on work experience at GGS

Hi, my name is Kate Pritchard and I’ve just joined GGS on an apprenticeship scheme arranged through City College Norwich. Prior to this I have been working at Curry’s and PC World (where I still work on Saturdays) but I feel that my new job is much more suited to my skills. I finished studying my A-Levels last August, my favourite subject at the sixth form college was Media Studies as it allowed me to be creative and design my own pieces of media; such as magazine covers and horror film trailers. This was great practice for me as at… Read more »

School delighted with Graphic Design fom GGS

Flicking through pages of Broadland Prospectus

Is that the sound of a trumpet blowing…? Here’s a testimonial we just received; thought I’d share it with you : ) ‘Broadland High School approached GGS last summer for their advice with the concept, design and production of the new school prospectus. The governors felt that the prospectus was the most important marketing tool available to show what the school has to offer to new parents and students. We invited Chris Ball (Director) to visit our school and found him to be professional and inspirational, with his clarity of perception of our ethos. GGS produced a prospectus that met… Read more »

Everyone’s a Winner!!

Photograph competition winner with prizes

Well… Not strictly true. In fact, only one person’s a winner, but it doesn’t make such a good title. Anyway; the winner in question is Jane Matthews who received the most votes in our Valentine’s I ♥ U Photo competition with her wedding day photograph which we have printed up for her as a 20 x 16″ canvas wrap as part of her prize.  She also received a fabulous box of Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles from local manufacturer Booja Booja in Brooke and an exquisite bottle of Moutard Pere et fils Rose Champagne from HarperWells in Eaton. Congratulations Jane! Don’t eat/drink it… Read more »

Getting the best lighting for your photographs.

Blue throttle component on red background

As professional photographers, we know that how you use lighting is the single most important factor in creating exceptional images. It may seem obvious but determining the best lighting depends what the subject is, how large it is, where it’s situated and what effect you want to achieve. So what kind of effect to do you want to create?   Your subject could be a small item with an important feature to show therefore you would need to use a small, sharp light from an acute angle, to glance across the surface and show up texture. If your subject has… Read more »

Tips for photographing your products!

Professional colourful product photography

At GGS, we believe that using highly professional images is a key factor when it comes to selling products. A company website or brochure is also a “shop window” therefore poor quality photographs will not benefit a business and potential customers will buy elsewhere. We’ve been providing a creative, commercial photography service for over 37 years now and some would say we’re experts in our field! All of our professional photographers are Associate members of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and always work to the very highest standards. Our on-site facilities include a large, drive-in studio with infinity… Read more »

Giving it LARGE in Poland

Office Hallway with blue wave graphic on walls

When a client asks if we do big prints (to which we say ‘yes’ of course) we can never be sure just how big they have in mind. So when Agile Marketing asked if we could produce bespoke printed wallpaper, big enough to cover whole walls, we got quite excited… and said ‘yes’ again.   This was for their client, Space-pod, who had designed and refurbished a building in Krackow, Poland, as a new call centre. Virtually every wall, on several floors, needed to have a graphic covering and we produced nearly 300 sq metres of smooth, hard wearing, wallcovering,… Read more »

Christmas tubing

GGS team building exercise

Rather than just going for a standard Christmas meal, the powers that be (Me, Pete and Dunc… well… mainly Dunc in this case) decided that it would be a good idea to start the evening off with a bit of tubing at the Norfolk Snowsports Club on Whitlingham Lane. ‘What on earth is tubing?’, I hear you ask – as did most of the staff. Basically it’s nothing more than travelling at speed from the top of the ski slope to the bottom, but instead of having to stand up on a couple of planks (too energetic) you get to… Read more »
