It's not fancy,
it's just Frank

A new brand for Franklyn James

Having opened in 2004, by 2014 Franklyn James was a successful, growing business, but had never quantified what made them special.

The answer came from owner Sandy, “I won’t have lying.” he said to us, “And that includes the usual lies estate agents tell, like saying a house is worth more than it is to get an instruction.”

Meeting staff, we found honesty and a no-nonsense approach, a focus on getting the basics right, and a fierce work ethic. We articulated this with a wordplay that was too good to pass up. It’s an identity which disarms, gently disrupts, and occasionally raises a smile within an industry which rarely does.

What They Said

“The team at Both brought real innovation and creativity to our re-branding. They had a thorough understanding of our business, and made sure we were ahead of the competition by taking a truly original approach. They put the client first, and consistently go above and beyond the call of duty. Ultimately the proof is in the results, and we’ve seen a significant increase in both website traffic and enquiries from vendors, landlords, purchasers and tenants as a result of their work.”
