City councils are now being tasked with developing independent profit-making centres that extend their services. Unbugged is delivered by the pest control team at Lancaster & Morecambe City Council. They offer cost-effective solutions to local residents and businesses who find themselves hosting unwelcome guests (of the non-human kind!).

What we did

Developing a standalone business was a new venture for the City Council and they were starting from scratch. A team from Apparatus worked with them from start to finish, coming up with a number of brand-naming solutions and assisting with business registration, developing a brand identity and a full suite of marketing collateral including website, digital marketing strategy, livery, signage, uniforms, exhibition displays and printed material. We really enjoyed working closely with the team over a period of months, especially Freddie, the champion rat catching spaniel who came along to meetings and played his part!
