Established in 1991, Emmo Communications was set up primarily to provide a bespoke personal service to clients' advertising and promotion problems, where people have become fed up with inflated charges borne from full-service advertising agencies and design houses.
The service is exactly the same, but with several fundamental differences. The person you see is the person who will do your job - no account 'managers' passing your important project down the line to the studio junior when he gets back to the agency. What's more, your final invoice won't include hidden charges for his new BMW, the new carpet in reception or the 'free' lunch he takes you to. We don't close at 5 o'clock either - you can contact us at any time about your project including evenings and weekends.
We pride ourselves in providing work that will not necessarily win awards, but will sell more of your products and increase your turnover and profit. We won't promise the world and charge the earth for it either - each job is budgeted from the onset, and prices agreed before any work commences.
With a unique arrangement that bears virtually no overheads and with over 33 years professional experience in the industry, you can be sure that Emmo Communications is the right choice for you.
Call us today and see examples of how other people have benefited from our services.
Martin studied graphic design for 3 years at Northampton School of Art alongside famous names such as Horace Panter (Bass player for the scar band 'The Specials') and Bill Drummond (of the 'KLF') who he is still in contact with.
Even if they don't know him, a lot of people can remember Martin's earlier work as he started in the business way back in 1972 as an on-pack promotions designer for Weetabix Limited designing and producing amongst other things cut-out trains, planes and cars on the back of packs. Ironically during this time he was also on the original tasting panel for the then new product 'Alpen' produced by the same company. Martin moved on fairly swiftly to work with advertising agencies and gained most of his experience in this field.
'Agency life' began about 1978 as a designer for Gayton Advertising in Leicester working on many blue chip accounts such as British Gas, Scholl Footwear and Walker's Snack Foods. When the British Gas account left the agency, Martin followed it so to speak and worked for the company who gained it, namely Garratt Baulcombe Associates in Nottingham and increased his portfolio with accounts such as Deb Chemicals, Blue Hawk DIY Products and Cavendish Woodhouse Furniture.
Leaving GBA, he was offered a position as Creative Group Head at Alexander Colbear Advertising, but after just 3 years was persuaded to go back to GBA who had now amalgamated with Foote Cone & Belding of London and later with Publicis, Paris.
He Finished his 'employed' status so to speak as Creative Director for a small advertising and marketing agency in the centre of Nottingham and left there to set up Emmo Communications in 1991.
