Two Cirencester creatives have launched a support package aimed at helping local retailers, hospitality and beauty businesses to raise their profiles and drive sales in the run-up to the festive season, writes Chris Roberts.

Kay Ransom of Kay Ransom Photography and Nigel Chute of Chute Design have combined forces to offer a service creating simple animated videos.

Kay says: “It’s an amazing and simple animated tool to help you convey to your customers – in just 60 seconds – what your business does.

"In a world where businesses are looking at their online offer during this pandemic, this is a great way to stand out.”

Nigel explains: “Our clients want something high-impact, short and fun that will stick in people’s minds and prompt them to buy.

"In addition to having a quick turnaround, it’s keenly priced to assist as many of our local product and service providers as possible.

"We’ve just had a local company sign up supplying a wonderful new hand sanitizer so watch this space!”
