Printing onto Perspex is an innovative way to produce contemporary, transparent graphic displays. However, Karl Gustav’s work in this medium is super cool!

image-engineers-logo.pngDecember 2010 New Website

What better time to launch a new website than in conjunction with a new name and logo?
Our original Worth Framing website received great feedback for its detailed content about framing processes and principles, but it had little graphic appeal. Our 2008 Image Engineers website had graphic appeal but lacked valuable content.
This new website is a real attempt to combine graphic appeal with value-added content that provides useful information about all the products and services we have developed since we started in 2004.
It is aimed very specifically at our target markets of photographers, printers, interior designers and architects; irrespective of whether they are amateur or professional.
Its intension is to demonstrate that we are able to supply a broad range of products and services, which will enable our clients to use us as a one-stop-shop for all their imaging, printing, framing and display requirements.

We sincerely hope that our existing clients get a fresh perspective on our total range of activities, and that new clients will recognize a company that is passionate about the detail and sincere about its relationships, whilst being fresh and innovative.
Welcome to Image Engineers!

image-engineers-logo.pngNovember 2010 New Name & Logo

In view of the changes to our products and markets since the founding of Worth Framing in 2004, we have decided to change our formal trading name to Image Engineers.

The Image Engineers brand name was developed in 2008 in order to assist our entry into the Interior Design market, as we felt it was more relevant to this new business area. Since then our products and markets have continued to grow, so the adoption of Image Engineers as the overall business name is a logical choice. We start with superb images and we engineer these images into great solutions for décor, display and signage – We enhance your Space.

A new name obviously goes hand-in-hand with a new logo. Here we have tried to retain the colourful flair of Worth Framing, but set it into a modern piece of 3D engineering, evocative of our strategic direction.
Worth Framing will be retained as our registered name, but we believe that putting all our products and services under a single modern banner will assist us to continue delivering the quality and service for which we have become renowned.
