Creative Campaigns #14 – Cath Kidston x Animal Crossing

Of course, it was only a matter of time before one of the fantastic campaigns by Rise At Seven made its way on to my blog. I love writing about the most original and creative campaigns I can find, and a lot of their work fits into this narrative. Their latest campaign is no exception,… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #14 – Cath Kidston x Animal Crossing

A Brand That Ticks (Almost) Every Box: Freddie’s Flowers

I think I just discovered my favourite brand. So naturally, I had to write about them. After being sent a free box from one of my friends (shoutout to Rebecca, you're the best!) I was so excited to receive my bouquet in the post. I'd heard nothing but good things of Freddie's Flowers - the UK… Continue reading A Brand That Ticks (Almost) Every Box: Freddie’s Flowers

Creative Campaigns #12 – Check What NASA Saw On Your Birthday

If you think that your campaign won't do well right now because it's not Covid-19 related, you'd be wrong. Recently, to celebrate its 30th birthday, NASA Hubble launched a neat little campaign which meant that you could find out what it saw on your one of your birthdays. Amidst a truly awful time, Nasa Hubble's campaign… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #12 – Check What NASA Saw On Your Birthday

Creative Campaigns #11 – National Trust Launches #BlossomWatch

The National Trust has been on point with their communication strategy recently, especially seeing as they were one of the most affected organisations of the Coronavirus pandemic. Working in rural PR has really opened my eyes to how challenging, yet rewarding, promoting such an organisation can be. Even more so when you can't actually welcome… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #11 – National Trust Launches #BlossomWatch

The Power Of Positive PR: Captain Tom’s Story

We are all crying out for positive news at the moment. The world is rather bleak right now, and it's very easy to feel consumed by negative news and want to switch off from it entirely. Subsequently, most media outlets are desperate for buoyant stories. It's a truly strange time to be a PR, because… Continue reading The Power Of Positive PR: Captain Tom’s Story

Creative Campaigns #10 – Brewdog Formulates Brewgel For The NHS

When all of this comes to pass, the companies that will undoubtedly be remembered will be the ones who stepped up to help (alongside those who made awfully questionable choices during this pandemic, but that's a can of worms to open on another blog post). Brewdog is one such brand that I don't doubt will… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #10 – Brewdog Formulates Brewgel For The NHS

Creative Campaigns #8 – Netflix* Shows Are Being Spoiled

Campaign of the year in my eyes so far, I said yesterday. That was until I realised this wasn't actually a campaign by Netflix (though I bet they wish it was) but rather a quirky stunt which was the brainchild of Seine Kongruangkit and Matithorn Prachuabmoh Chaimoungkalo of the Miami Ad School Europe in Hamburg,… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #8 – Netflix* Shows Are Being Spoiled

Creative Campaigns #7 – Grenade Launch A Protein Easter Egg

These are strange times for marketing, it's impossible to escape the fact that we're currently crippled by a pandemic. As such, many brands are abandoning their campaigns and postponing product launches. But why? It's clear that journalists still have an appetite for news that's not C-word related and let's be honest, we all need a… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #7 – Grenade Launch A Protein Easter Egg

Tesco diverse plaster range campaign - It's about bloody time
Campaigns

Creative Campaigns #6 – About Bloody Time

I shouldn't be here writing this today, but I am. That's because racially diverse plasters should be commonplace by now, but they're not. Plasters are skin-tone coloured so that when they protect our skin, they're not painstakingly obvious. Which is great. Well, that's if you don't account for every other skin tone there is other… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #6 – About Bloody Time

Major McFail: McDonalds ‘Vegan’ Dippers

We're just three days into the new year and there's already been a bit of a marketing cock-up by none other than McDonald's. A brand that I was only talking about a few days ago due to the impressive efforts of arguably it's biggest competitor. From being undermined by Burger King, to being outdone by… Continue reading Major McFail: McDonalds ‘Vegan’ Dippers
