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: The National Forest

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

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: Müller Milk branding and packaging

Our Müller Milk packaging is now in the fridges of convenience stores nationwide.

We’ve been working with Müller on the branding for their milk products since spring 2016, exploring a range of concepts and running workshops both internally and with consumers to develop the new identity. As a result we’ve created a new look and feel that develops the previous branding, while also building on the Müllerlicious proposition and giving the brand greater shelf standout.

The new brand is rolling out across Müller’s milk, cream and butter in convenience stores throughout 2017. It’s been brilliant working with Müller over the past year, and the creative team is already working on a few other exciting projects for the brand.

New client: My Healthy Kitchen

We might only have been back in the studio for a few weeks, but we’ve already leapt straight into a huge pile of projects – and we’ve started working with some new clients.

Strictly speaking, we actually began working with My Healthy Kitchen, a new, better-for-you ready meal brand, right at the end of 2016. Offering meals that are made delicious and nutritious with the ingredients they put in, rather than what they take away, My Healthy Kitchen brings tastier, healthier, and more exciting possibilities to the ready meal category.

We’ve designed, built and written copy for the brand’s website and will be managing and creating content for their social media channels, all of which will be launching next month. Look out for our work on Twitter and Facebook in February!
