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.”

Our work: Steakation campaign

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Son of Steak Steakation logo

Summer. Seems like a distant memory. But back in the sunshine season, did you spot our campaign for Son of Steak?

There’s loads to do in Nottingham during the summer and Steakation (yep, that one’s ours) drew visitors to the city – and the restaurant – for a day out. By showing proof that they’d made the most of any city centre attraction, all lucky, hungry Steakationers landed 20% off food between 12 and 6pm, boosting trade at these quieter hours.

After coming up with the initial Steakation concept, we designed an identity and created marketing material including flyers and social posts. We also made a cow, which we took to Nottingham Beach for the day to promote the new campaign and spread the word. Known as Eddy Bull, he’s now a permanent restaurant fixture.

Read more about our Son of Steak here, or take a look at our work for their social media channels. We’ll leave you with Eddy.

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.

New client: MOR Sausages

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.
