Celebrating 175 years

Bidwells, a multi-disciplined property company, asked KISS to develop a communications and imagery platform for its 175th anniversary.

The client

Bidwells is one of the UK’s leading property consultancies, with a large presence in the residential, commercial and rural marketplaces. It employs almost 500 people in 12 offices across the UK. In 2014, Bidwells was celebrating its 175th anniversary and approached KISS to help the compamy celebrate and communicate this milestone anniversary.

The challenge

To build a communications platform for the 175th anniversary

To develop a logo and strapline for use across all marketing collateral

To design a prestigious coffee table book to commemorate the anniversary

175th communications Strapline

The KISS solution

The agency created a distinctive and memorable logo and an accompanying strapline for the anniversary which the client could use across the entire organisation: Shaping the future of property for 175 years.


This appeared on everything from marketing collateral to social media, from in-store displays to event support materials. In conjunction with this, we designed a large-format, 40 page coffee-table book, which will be a lasting and treasured reminder of 2014.

KISS has that rare combination of listening and actually 'hearing' what the problem is: being creative, but also pragmatic and able to deliver on time and on budget.
