Fox's Biscuits logo with new proposition

Ready for an exciting update? In case you haven’t heard, we’ve been appointed as Fox’s Biscuits’ lead agency!

Even if you’d not come across that little piece of news, you’ve definitely heard of Fox’s. They’re one of the UK’s most well-known biscuit brands, famous for some of the nation’s favourite sweet treats including Party Rings, Rocky, and Crunch Creams.

Having spent the past few years headlining their marketing with a character, Vinnie the Panda, the brand’s now going through a transformation underpinned by a new proposition: ‘Lovingly baked since 1843.’ As part of this new phase for the brand Fox’s has chosen us to lead their strategy and creative, including digital, social, in-store, advertising and PR. Everything from the tone of voice to the photography will be getting a shakeup, and we’re delighted that we’ll be the ones to do it.

While we’ve worked with Fox’s in the past on projects including packaging, new product development, and branding, this is a huge new step in our relationship with the brand. To stay up to date with our work, follow along on our social channels.

Now we’re off to roll up our sleeves; this is where the real work begins!

New client: The National Forest

If it’s looking quiet on the blog, it’s only because we’re absolutely manic behind the scenes. There’s loads going on at Together this spring, including some exciting work and client wins we can’t talk about just yet. But to give you a taster, here’s one we can share: we’ve started working with The National Forest.

The National Forest has transformed more than 200 square miles of the Midlands by creating more forested areas, planting millions of trees over the last 20 years to increase woodland cover from 6% to over 20%. But it’s about more than trees; by regenerating the area, The National Forest is helping those nearby to live and work with nature.

After a tender and pitch process at the start of this year, we won the opportunity to help The National Forest develop their proposition and visual style. We recently kicked things off with a day-long brand workshop with team members and stakeholders, exploring what makes The National Forest unique and gathering everyone’s ideas.

Now, we’re in the process of using all that useful stuff to inform our creative – and help the brand to find their new identity.

We’re loving working with The National Forest’s brilliant team, and can’t wait to share what we create together. Keep an eye on this blog, and our social media channels, for updates.

Our work: MOR photoshoot

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

When it comes to showing off a new food product, great photography makes stomachs growl – so as part of our website, social media, and PR work for MOR, we needed mouthwatering shots that’d send customers running for the nearest Tesco.

MOR’s sausages have wonderful, versatile flavours that are great for cooking, so we wanted to show them in their element. We got chef Tom Cockerill on board to create eight original recipes, two for each sausage flavour, which we prepared, styled, and shot.

Visually, we took inspiration from chefs like Jamie Oliver and Tom Kerridge, as well as from the lush imagery found in the publications like The Guardian and Waitrose Food. 

Spot our photography on the MOR website and on the brand’s Facebook and Instagram.

MOR Sausages have just hit Tesco’s shelves – and as the digital, social and PR agency for the new brand, we’ve been a huge part of the launch.

We’ve been working with MOR since the beginning of the year, having been appointed to design their website, create and manage their social media channels, and lead their PR campaigns.

For the website we created a simple yet artisanal feel, which is complemented by our foodie-inspired copy. Illustrations by artist Clover Robin, alongside our own photography, bring the brand to life and emphasise MOR’s passionate, yet accessible, food-loving personality. We also animated some of Clover’s illustrations in-house to create engaging web and social media content.

Aside from web, we’ve launched MOR on Facebook and Instagram and will be managing their content and communities going forward. Over in PR our launch campaign has already seen excellent results, with a huge amount of sample requests and national coverage.

Follow MOR on social to stay up to date. Be warned; it will make you hungry.

There’s a new cow in town – and we’re spreading the word.

Opening towards the end of March in Nottingham’s Trinity Square, Son of Steak is the newest restaurant to come from Mitchells & Butlers, one of the UK’s largest bar, pub, and restaurant brands and owner of popular chains like Harvester, Toby Carvery, and All Bar One.

We’ve taken on Son of Steak as a social media client, and have just launched its Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter channels. That’s all we’re saying for now – we don’t want to spoil anything! – so follow Son of Steak on social to see what it’s all about.
