Q: We are an accessories company based in London and Paris. The Paris office has created a TV ad that we'd like to translate and adapt for use in the UK. Who can help us do that?
A: You should consider giving ViaDigital a call (020 7060 1891). It is a creative production company that specialises in high-quality TV advertising, broadcast and corporate film content and radio ads.
In order to adapt your execution, it can record a fresh voice-over, commission a music score, and organise photography of your UK products if necessary.
It is also happy to write scripts and clear these with the Broadcast Advertising Clearance Centre. Previous clients include Staples, News International and Nelson.
Q: We want to promote our latest product in garden centres across the South East. Who can create some innovative point-of-sale work for us?
A: Lexon (020 8330 2900) offers a complete point-of-sale/point-of-purchase package, and can cater to both in-store campaigns or a one-off project.
It can undertake the complete project from the initial design onward, including a full cardboard engineering service. The firm produces high-quality material along with a quick turnaround, and is happy to offer advice on forthcoming campaigns and projects.
A prototyping service is also available and Lexon can send 3-D visuals for your approval, before creating a pre-production mock-up of the unit, so that you can be sure it will suit the required environment.
Q: We are a supplier of high-end electronic products and want to create a brochure that we can send to potential customers as well as distribute it in stores. Who can design this?

SAY IT WITH CHOCOLATE
Q: We are thinking about what to send our best customers as a thank you for their custom over the past year, and chocolate seems to be a popular choice in the office. Is there anyone who supplies corporate packages?
