HPi Verification Services is one of the companies licensed by the European Commission to issue the CE certificate of quality to manufacturers selling products into the European market. The company has clients all over the world and on every continent, from sole traders working from a shed in the garden to huge blue-chip organisations and household names like Pfizer, General Motors and BAE Systems.

HPiVS recently asked us to create a new brand style for them – one that would stand out both on and offline. We created an identity that is fresh, modern, and appeals to a global audience, whilst retaining the professional nature of the business.

As part of the rebrand we were commissioned to design a website that incorporated the new identity. In this modern world where the internet is accessed more often via mobile phone than computer, a key requirement of the site was that it worked across all platforms. We chose to use WordPress, because of its advanced content management system and cross-platform functionality. The design of the site follows the new brand guidelines and incorporates icons and imagery from the brochures and exhibition display stands we also created as part of the rebrand.

Alasdair Reay, CEO of HPiVS, said: “One Hat has lifted the appearance of our organisation and with it our own feeling of self-worth. As we handed out new fliers to be proud of in front of an exhibition stand that drew admiring glances, it was as if our new image brought renewed professionalism to the team. We recommend One Hat to any company wishing to get noticed.”
