The Big Sleuth, Birmingham

Posted in: Case Study

We do love producing exceptionally good print… and we also love it when the customer has such kind words to say…

The Souvenir Guide is exquisite – beautifully bound; crystal clear images – and it is proving to be the fastest selling item in Birmingham at the moment.

As always, it was to the wire – and, as always, Galloway’s went the extra mile – in working with us to ensure a solution for as quick a turnaround as possible without any compromise to quality, service or delivery. The Big Sleuth’s predecessor, The Big Hoot, raised over £500,000 for the charity at auction, and The Big Sleuth aims to do the same.

Thank you – we know how much support you gave us to make this happen.

Sally Ann, Managing Director – Wild in Art

Business objectives

  • Provide informative and entertaining literature showcasing seasonal tourist attraction in Birmingham city centre

How we achieved it

  • Advised on print design (pagination and layout) to ensure the project ran smoothly and assisted with ease of use
  • Colour matching the product to the print through retouching in the studio


  • Significant footfall increase to the city centre
  • To match last years result and raise an incredible £500,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity
  • To create something amazing, making everyone take a second out their busy day to stop, take a second and smile at the colourful, creative and interactive designs in and around the city centre.
