Innovative Worcester Company’s Double Cause for Celebration


Staff at a Worcester design and branding agency have double reason to celebrate after being nominated for a top award in their anniversary year.

Stilo, who provide a range of print and digital media solutions to clients across a variety of sectors, have been nominated for the title Services Innovator of the Year in the 2021 Innovation Awards.

The nomination comes in the year Stilo celebrates its 15th anniversary, having been launched by founder and creative director Ian Woodley in April 2006.

The awards, supported by Aston, Coventry, Wolverhampton and Birmingham City Universities, celebrate innovation shown by companies and individuals over the past 12 months. They are co-ordinated by The Technology Supply Chain, a no-cost membership for manufacturing, engineering, tech and services companies.

Stilo is the company behind StiloTouch, an interactive digital sales tool that offers sales and marketing teams a dynamic way to drive presentations through a rich mix of media, allowing businesses to take their marketing to a whole new level.

Mr Woodley said: “Innovation is at the very heart of what we do, so to be nominated in this category is really exciting. We have worked incredibly hard over the past three years trying to develop a platform which will tangibly benefit businesses in a dynamic and interactive way, and what we have developed is something that a positive step change in terms of how companies do business.

“We see this as a recognition of us developing a different way of thinking, and this nomination is testament to a team of people who bring a range of skillsets to making the end product as good as it is.”

StiloTouch brings presentations to life by equipping sales teams with the ability to access all the material they need in one place – data, video, technical specifications and graphics are all available through one hub at the touch of a button, helping companies stand out from their competition.

Mr Woodley said the company had worked on more than 2,000 projects with clients over the past 15 years – as well as West Midlands businesses, the client list included Tarmac, British Gypsum, Stanley and Scania.

He added: “Many businesses still don’t have the tools to tell people about their services, so our focus in the coming years will be continuing to help businesses communicate better by doing things differently.”
