Smooth sailing for canal cruise rebrand

Book a canal boating break in the beautiful North West with Canal Boat Cruises, and celebrate their brand refresh with a special offer.

The North-West’s canals are a haven of peace, nature and history. Around every bend there’s something to discover, from lockside pubs and historic docks, to tree-top trekking and ancient towers and castles.








You’ll also find the luxury narrowboats of Canal Boat Cruises. Lesley and John Yates always loved narrowboating. Then one day, they decided to turn the family passion into a business and they’ve never looked back. They now operate 3 holiday boats, and offer a broad range of canal-based activities too – from river dining to weddings and corporate events.

It’s been such a success that the company won Lancashire Tourism Awards’ Small Visitor Attraction Award for 2014. Now Canal Boat Cruises has launched its brand refresh, designed by Happy’s digital creatives. And despite the new logo and website features, all the things that won Canal Boat Cruises its loyal following are still in evidence. Because you don’t change a winning formula.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.
