The Draft Northamptonshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) Report 2015 went out for public consultation on 9 December 2014.consultation
PNAs are used by the NHS to decide whether to approve applications for new pharmacies and it is used by commissioners to identify local health needs that could be addressed by pharmacy services.

Northamptonshire County Council was consulting on pharmaceutical service needs in the area and so residents were invited to have their say.

Anyone who uses local pharmaceutical services, e.g. chemists, is encouraged to comment on a draft PNA by completing an online survey. The consultation was open from December to February 2015 – the survey link can be found online at

We produced a reply envelope and managed the response process, produced a colour executive summary, a poster, packed with a handful of  questionnaires and posted these all out together with a covering letter all in a matter of days.


HM Government

We all have a stake in how government budgets are spent on documents, signage and printed matter and whilst not every element of government supports its local economy that can’t be used as a criticism against our local councils.

Carbon Colour have undertaken document and signage print projects for Oxfordshire County Council, the Vale and South Oxfordshire District Councils and for Oxford City; amongst others.




Pitney Bowes emtex

Pitney Bowes emtex Software is a leading provider of enterprise output management solutions for high volume print and mail production. Founded in 1992 and formerly known as emtex, the company has grown over the last 15 years and earned a reputation for delivering products of the highest quality. Its recent acquisition by Pitney Bowes enabled emtex to be part of a complete package providing an end to end document workflow solution.

But they still needed our help to produce a collection of collateral.



British Telecom

BT is the world’s oldest telecommunications company. The company’s origins date back to the establishment of the first telecommunications companies in the United Kingdom.  Among them was the first commercial telegraph service, the Electric Telegraph Company, which was established back in 1846.  As the companies amalgamated and were taken over or collapsed, the remaining companies were transferred to state control under the Post Office. These companies were merged and rebranded as British Telecommunications.

When BT launched their home-use broadband service they needed a graphic solution that reinforced the freedom of access, ease of installation and user-friendly nature of their product. Working with them to choose a range of images that best represented these key aims; we produced large graphic panels to install in their London head office. The panels decorated the public interaction zone and helped reinforce the positive launch messages of the service.

The panels were installed onto both temporary partition walling and the structural pillars and walls on one complete floor of the building and helped define key selling points of BT Openworld to visiting members of the public.

At the same time, to help promote the brand strengths to BT’s staff we produced a series of hanging banners that were installed in the working spaces of the building.
Such was the success of this project that we then produced and installed similar panels and banners throughout the call-centre support network of the service across the UK.
