Our World Book Day Favourites

Yesterday was World Book Day so we thought we’d round up a few recommendations from the Robson Brown team.

Let’s start with Mark who says you must read a little known Scottish book (he would) that’s Scotland’s answer to Of Mice and Men called “The Cone Gatherers” by Robin Jenkins, “Geek Love” by Katherine Dunn and “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy…

We’re milking this project for all it’s worth

We have just completed an awareness campaign for a new Bellway development to be built on the site of an old dairy in Streatham, so, it’s no coincidence that the development has been called The Old Dairy.

The development contains everything from two bedroom apartments to four bedroom houses and the fact that its location was so iconic led to our idea for local advertising that traded off that fact…

Back in the day

We’ve spent quite a bit of time getting our website archive into shape.

It wasn’t live when we launched the new site in early January, but, as of today, it is.

We’ve written mini case studies for no fewer than 24 different clients spanning retail, motors, leisure (especially hotels and visitor attractions), the arts and entertainment, B2B, education, professional and financial services…

It’s not just RB that’s reborn

Earlier this week the Investors Chronicle rated The Mission Marketing Group plc (“Mission”, our parent company) a BUY because of its good management, good prospects and solid financial performance.

It’s been a hard time of late trying to make a decent return in the marketing services sector…

Creating some Head Space in Cirencester

Following a competitive design pitch we have been appointed by The Vineyard Group to develop the brand and launch marketing for a new hotel in Cirencester.

Named recently as one of the Hot New Hotels for 2014 by The Times, The Kings Head, a grade 2 listed building, is undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme and is due to open in early summer 2014…

Venez loin les gars du Nord-Est!

Our Fresh TV commercial is creating a real stir and has been nominated in the Drum’s “Creative Works” – a weekly round up of the latest interesting creative work.

Drum readers are invited to vote for their favourite work on display and it’s uber-competitive with ads, designs, packaging and digital work represented from all over the UK (including Walkers, Warburtons and Ritz Crackers)

This week there’s even a big budget ad from Paris for Lacoste…

Space to spare for digital developers.

As co-creation becomes an increasingly common practice these days, particularly amongst digital marketers, we’re looking to indulge in a spot of it ourselves.

We’ve got fabulous and well located offices here in Summerhill Terrace, but the truth is they’re bigger than we need right now so we’re looking to share our space (for free) with a digital team that’s looking to grow its reputation and its business…

Real Bangers

We’re quite partial to our grub here at RB, and during one of our many food related chats we came to the agreement that there’s nothing quite like a good sausage. Its versatility knows no bounds, whether it’s wrapped in soft bread and butter or slow cooked in a casserole with seasonal veg, there’s always room for a banger…

Don’t be the 1

Today we launch a highly emotive smoking cessation campaign for Fresh.

Fresh Smoke Free North East is a long-term client that we’ve done a lot of work for as you can see here. But we feel our latest integrated work has really raised the bar with a powerful emotional TV treatment that shows the impact on family life that a parent would have if they were to become terminally ill as a result of their smoking behavior…

What clients think

A recent survey to monitor the health of client/agency relationships reveals a fascinating snapshot of how clients view their agencies, and how we, as an agency can learn from these insights to improve and grow. Some of the key findings are below and the full article can be viewed here (design week article)…
