We don’t like to blow our own trumpet, but there are some pretty excellent reasons why you should consider coming over for a cup of tea and a chat about how we can help you with your next creative or branding project. And as our company strapline goes, we don’t want to be the biggest branding agency in Cheshire, we want to be the best.   

Lewis Carroll’s children’s classic Alice in Wonderland has made sure that our home county of Cheshire will forever be associated in the popular imagination with grinning cats. 

But the origins of the famous smiling feline can be traced back much further in history. Cheshire’s rolling plain has long been prime land for dairy farming, and the county is well known for its cheese to this day.

That, according to an old saying, is why Cheshire cats always appear so happy. With so many dairies about, they are very much the cats who get the cream. 

Living and working in Cheshire, you can’t help but feel the same way. If the beautiful countryside dotted with picture postcard villages isn’t enough to get you grinning from ear to ear, try a taste of the county’s rich history. From the stunning Roman walls and medieval cathedral of Chester to the grand views from impressive hill top castles, there is never any shortage of activities to feed the mind and the imagination.

And for all its rural tranquillity, in Cheshire you are never far from the pace and excitement of modern city life. With Liverpool and Manchester just a stone’s throw away, Cheshire really does offer the best of both worlds. 

This unique blend helps to shape every aspect of Cheshire life, including business and industry. It is a mix we at Ultimate Creative aim to nurture in our approach to branding and marketing - an eye for beauty, an appreciation of tradition, and the drive to embrace the modern.

We believe these values help to make us one of the best branding agencies in Cheshire, with a client list of the county’s finest organisations who we keep smiling from ear to ear.

Creative and Branding to Promote Cheshire Tourism

Culture seekers, shoppers, history buffs and those looking for a quiet retreat in the country all flock to Cheshire to sample its many delights. County seat Chester is a tourism hotspot, famous for its Roman ruins, cathedral and unique two-level Tudor shopping arcades, the Rows.

Another major draw is Chester Zoo. Boasting more than 15,000 animals and 500 different species, it is the most visited zoo in the UK. Ultimate is proud to have a long-standing relationship working with the zoo on its brand visibility, as well as promoting its Act for Wildlife conservation campaign.

We have also worked with a number of Cheshire’s premier hotel destinations, many of them operated from the county’s rich collection of stately homes. These include Peckforton Castle, a stunning Victorian imitation of a medieval castle, Nunsmere Hall and Combermere Abbey.

Promoting Cheshire Industry

From the ancient salt mines which gave the likes of Nantwich, Northwich and Middlewich their names, Cheshire also has a rich industrial heritage to go alongside its rural past.

The Stanlow oil refineries and chemical works stretching along the banks of the River Mersey between Ellesmere Port and Runcorn have been home to some of the world’s biggest industrial giants over the years. We are proud to play our part in keeping that heritage alive through our work with specialty chemical company Innospec.

A short hop down the motorway in our home town of Knutsford, we also work with chemical suppliers Norkem.

Located so conveniently for the major urban centres of Liverpool, Manchester and Stoke-on-Trent, Cheshire also has a thriving professional services sector. Again in Knutsford, we support recruitment specialist De Poel. We have also worked with change management consultants Project One.
