The only things certain in life are death and taxes

We’ve given RJ. Burgess, a Normanton based funeral directors, a new lease of life thanks to support from Designing Demand, an initiative promoting business growth (

Following our Brandschool™ process, we created a brand which accurately represented the uniqueness of RJ. Burgess and the special qualities which comes from using them to plan a funeral.

With 15 years on the high street, the family owned and run business has unveiled a fresh new look which includes the updating of all branding, shop front fascia, website and corporate brochure, as well as internal refurbishment.

“You have looked at my business with eyes wide open and have been able to offer advice that helped me form a new and much better way of offering choice to the families that we are dealing with. You’ve given us a fresh crisp look yet have managed to incorporate the values that everyone associates with us. The guidance on the interior look and feel, along with the furnishing, was of great help and has enabled us to continue the theme throughout the whole business.

I have nothing but praise for your team and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking to rebrand or refresh their business.

A client commented yesterday that the brochures were a great help to her and her family in allowing them to make a decision together as a family in the privacy of their own home.

I have to say that with your help we have been able to turn our business around. Giving the client a choice has already made a difference and we have had to do nothing but allow them to choose what product they wish to purchase without any pressure on the client.”
