Case study: International Labour Organisation (ILO)

We worked closely with the International Labour Organisation to deliver an Easy Read document, covering Zambia’s National Policy on Disability.

CDS helped us make our identity more clear to businesses, to customers and the entire mobile industry. We are making this brand live. People identify who we are and understand what we are trying to achieve.

Case Study: Northamptonshire County Council

CDS design and print – controls content, brand and costs

Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) needed a single supplier to streamline their design and print arrangements to make the most of their buying power and achieve value for money, in the face of growing financial pressures.

CDS provided a turn-key design and print service which enabled them to produce designs consistent with their corporate brand, market testing for all printed products to deliver best value and improved purchasing, reporting and invoicing procedures.

Since implementing the service, NCC has been able to improve brand control, prevent unauthorised design and print and accurately record spending. They report savings across all publications and customer satisfaction is consistently recorded as either excellent (60%) or good (40%).
