New client: Good Life

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Good Life turns virtuous veg into seriously tasty veggie food. Rather than mimicking meat, their healthy and flavourful food lets veg do their thing while helping their consumers feel their best – because balance is what a Good Life’s all about.

Our work

Goodlife has appointed us as their brand development agency where we have refined their proposition to be all about Feel Good Food, developing their proposition, positioning and communication plan as well as creating their tone of voice. Among other branding projects, we’re also working with them on their packaging and other literature.

Ali Reilly, Marketing Manager of Good Life, says:

“Good Life are thrilled to be working with Together to encourage more consumers to start eating delicious vegetarian and vegan meals. The rise of flexitarianism or VNATS (Vegetarians Now & Then) has been so prominent recently and the market growth has been astronomical. Over 14% or ‘1 in 7 adults* now say they are interested in limiting or reducing their consumption of meat or poultry in the future’ and we’re here to help them do that.”

What’s next?

Stay tuned. We’ll soon be launching the new packaging into Good Life’s retailers. In the meantime, you can learn more about Good Life here.

New client: British Game Alliance

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

The British Game Alliance (BGA) is the official marketing board of the game industry. By bringing in tough standards and promoting the benefits of eating wild game, the BGA is ensuring a future for the industry and encouraging people to try game for the first time.

Our work

To raise awareness of game and engage consumers with their brand and mission, the BGA has appointed us as their lead creative and marketing agency. Among other projects, we’re working with them on photography, brand development, their new consumer-facing website, social media, and advertising.

Tom Adams, Managing Director of the British Game Alliance, says: “The BGA is striving to get more people eating game – but that’s not all. We need to get our assured wild game into the hands of consumers, and that’s why we appointed Together. They’ve already helped us to define our consumer campaign brand and will now be supporting us across all platforms as we spread our message as far and wide as possible.”

Over the last few years the game meat industry has needed a little reinvigoration, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to help the BGA  to tackle misconceptions and get game back into the hearts, minds and menus of consumers.

What’s next?

Stay tuned. We’ll soon be launching the BGA’s new consumer campaign. In the meantime, you can learn more about the BGA here.

4 Awesome Mother’s Day Campaigns That Nailed It

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Awards season is well and truly over. But we like to run our own little awards from time to time! Of course, we’re always on the lookout for inspiration and amazing campaigns within the social media, marketing and FMCG industries and Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Yep, better get those flowers ordered and that card written – it’s on Sunday 11th March!

We’ve had a search for some of our favourite Mother’s Day campaigns from recent years and we’ve given them all a very fancy schmancy award category, because, we’re professional like that. Enjoy!

1. Best For Powerful Message

Interflora’s campaign for ‘The Power of Flowers’ is all kinds of girl boss powerful and we love it. The aim was to convince the nation to reflect on the many reasons to send flowers to your lovely mum, not just Mother’s Day! Communications agency Home devised this campaign and their creative director had this to say; “Like mums, flowers can often be taken for granted and overlooked when it comes to what they stand for.” Bravo, guys.

2. Best For Content

Paperchase nailed the link between cute and useful content for their craft-loving market with their Mother’s Day DIY last year. By collaborating with a well known interior designer and crafter they gave their content even more authority as well as it being great to look at with click-through-ability! By showing their followers a quick DIY that they could whip up for their mum they showed their supportive side for penny-savers and creative side for their crafty followers. It’s the thought that counts and this DIY was really cute.

3. Best For Creative Idea

KFC are pretty much incredible for most campaigns but we really loved their Tender Wings of Desire parody of those saucy books! Because everyone’s dream guy is the Colonel, isn’t it?

 

4. Best For User Generated Content

Pandora have Mother’s Day wrapped up – they know they’re going to be uber-relevant for this holiday but they still try really hard with their campaigns and we love that. User-generated content is one of the toughest things to get right because, at the end of the day, people are lazy (Twitter) or overly proud (of their Instagram profiles). By incentivising their campaign with a competition and focusing it around an emotive subject, UGC was always going to be a great idea. They also dabbled in a Snapchat filter the year before so we’re looking forward to seeing what Pandora will come up with this year!

New client: Busy Bees

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Busy Bees is a top global nursery and education provider with more than 340 nurseries in the UK, as well as a further 148 sites in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and China.

Over the past 34 years the group’s grown and grown, acquiring more than 480 nurseries around the world.  So, to support Busy Bees’ evolution and mainly focusing on the UK, we’ve been appointed to move the brand forward.

We’ll be using Busy Bees’ new brand proposition, ‘Seriously happy childcare’, as a starting point to create a distinctive new identity. Through a new look and feel, tone of voice, and photographic style, Together will bring the brand bang up to date and amplify its founding principle: to provide great quality childcare to hardworking parents looking for a great start for their children.  This identity will roll out across all the brand’s collateral, from the website to nursery brochures and signage.

JT, one of Together’s two partners, said: “Busy Bees is a fantastic brand that offers us some exciting challenges. With the new identity, we’ll not only need to create something that juxtaposes that real warmth of the group with expertise and professionalism, but also something that their widespread teams and nurseries really buy into. We can’t wait to get started.”

Jitin Topiwala, Sales and Marketing Director at Busy Bees, said: “Chemistry is essential with a project of this scale. After meeting the agency and seeing their approach, we knew a creative partnership with Together would allow us to realise our ambitions for the brand.

“This is a hugely exciting time for Busy Bees and we’re looking forward to working with Together to bring our brand to life.”
