At Gemini Prototyping we were looking at how we can grow our coverage across the prototyping industry. Over the past 20 years, we have built an extensive and loyal customer base but we wanted to take our expertise to more companies. After talking to Gareth it was clear with his industry experience he could help us. Working with Gareth was easy – he took the time to understand our objectives and target audience allowing him to produce high quality and a professional company overview. The stylish look and design portrayed our brand and expertise perfectly and when it was sent to prospective customers electronically and printed with our VDI gauge, sales enquires increased leading to Gemini Prototyping attracting new customers.

Gareth has helped me improved my product and brand, and really helped me stand out to my target market. He’s created a simple and effective platform to build my business on and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

There are many great reasons to contact Gareth Looker of Looker Marketing Communications Ltd. I am the MD of Your Partnerships Ltd. and I have witnessed Gareth help so many of our members. Here are some to the reasons to contact Gareth Looker:
– If you need to re-evaluate how your message is being seen in the public and the strategy of how to deliver you message.
– If you are just starting out and not clear on the full message you wish to portray to the marketplace.
– If you have tried a few marketing messages and need an evaluation on making sure your message is being broadcast to the correct audience on the correct platforms or types of delivery.
I have seen Gareth take a client and ensure the business truly understands who their actual target audience so they can make a cost effective, targeted and effective marketing campaign. He has rocketed many of Your Partnerships members from a tabletop business to a serous concern in the business world. If you want to know more or ask me questions, feel free to contact me personally.

Working in mental health comes with its own challenges the ones I have always found particularly difficult are shouting about what I do and getting people to recognise the value of my service. My attitude has always been that I cannot know or do everything and to recognise when I need to go to an expert. Gareth was that expert for me. His knowledge of industry principles and trends were impressive and only really trumped by his commitment to understand the clients needs and wants. From the first to the last I felt in safe hands secure in the knowledge that Gareth would treat the sensitive and emotive nature of my business with the professionalism it required. If you are looking for a true professional then Gareth is your man.

I approached Gareth for help to design branding graphics for my business ahead of exhibiting at a trade show that we were exhibiting. I was massively impressed with his simple yet highly effective process to get relevant information about our target audience and their needs that we meet. Being a master at bringing a businesses’ values to life, Gareth took our responses to a few simple questions to quickly form unique design concepts and key messages that would resonate with our potential clients and get them to take the actions that we want them to take. Gareth’s striking design formed the graphics for our display stand.
I am even more in awe of his design and branding expertise because that design has been the basis of virtually all of our branding ever since. We have used it in several trade shows stands at which we have since exhibited as Gareth is able to add to and adapt it for varying stand sizes. It has also served as the graphics for our merchandise including on keyrings, banners and branded notebooks, as well as online advertising and social media campaigns. I can truly say that Gareth knows how to make your business shine out online and in print. He is well worth the investment.

Gareth ‘Shines Out’ from the many advertising/marketing people I have met. He is not afraid to speak his mind and challenge, but I have had lots of positive comments on the results. I look forward to working with him again.
Catherine Smith Accountants, Truro, Cornwall
If you are looking for a re-brand, new website and marketing ideas that really get you thinking, Gareth is certainly for you. He has just completed this for me. I now have a much more targeted business look for my business audience, a fast loading, bright and engaging new web site and a new crisp logo to match. (Just getting final bits in place my side before an official launch.) Added to this has been advice on how to get myself better known and how to attract new clients. Networking messaging ideas and thoughts on my USPs. Nothing is too much trouble and delivered really quickly. Such a very nice chap to work with too. Honestly, you might not think that you are needing any of this – but have a chat anyway. He can really open your eyes to the possibilities out there. Highly recommended.

Looker Marketing has helped us enhance our brand, and ultimately sales, by initially auditing our marketing communications and analysing our customers. They were then able to undertake an ongoing marketing campaign utilising a wide range of media: from press advertising and PR through to point of sale; from direct mail through to signage. It’s helped us achieve our goal of remaining attractive to our traditional customers whilst also opening up a new, younger market.
The bottom line is that we’ve significantly increased our turnover and profitability. Through a combination of creative flair and a practical hands-on, can-do attitude, Gareth has in effect become our ongoing in-house marketing department.

I hired Gareth to develop and bring forward a number of ideas for advertising my business. Right from our initial meeting I knew I had made the right decision and was in safe hands.
Gareth listened, advised and delivered everything I needed, promptly and efficiently. There is a real enthusiasm in his approach which is refreshingly free from jargon and buzz-words.
I’ll definitely be going back to Gareth with my next project.

We have worked together with Looker Marketing Communications for over 25 years and they have always delivered a modern, fresh and creative approach to our marketing and advertising requirements.
Company identity and brand recognition have always been a high priority for us and Looker has always managed to meet or exceed our expectations, with a personal touch that makes us feel that we are their only customer – an approach that we have always tried to adopt with our own customers.
Frequently we receive positive comments from our customers, and sometimes our competitors, on the design, content and style of our catalogues and ad’s, which is very much a reflection of the professional service that we receive from Looker Marketing Communications.
We look forward to working together with LMC in the future to help ensure that our brand remains one of the most recognised in our industry.
Alan Tilley, Managing Director, Prochem Europe Ltd, Chessington, Surrey
We have worked with Looker for well over 10 years on lots of different projects. The input he gives is excellent and has helped advance our business. When we had a completely new project to get off the ground, Lookers was our first call. The advice given led to concept and design and we now have an exciting new brand in our portfolio.
