Summer in the Studio

Footloose and fan-free – Summer in the Landscape Studio is proving to be a scorcher, with great creative hot off the press and hot creatives looking “great” in shorts, vests, and lobster-like complexions.

Our current lack of air-con has proven a great tool in getting some of the team out of their seats and onto the streets! In late May, our Client Services Director, Johnathon, “rewarded” himself with a trip to Barcelona for the Rewards & Benefits Summit and on the 20th June, not only did we exhibit at the Internal Communications Conference in Mayfair, but our Creative Director, Ryan, presented on the importance of storytelling in employee communications. (You can see it for yourself here!)

Those in the team who haven’t been enjoying the jetsetting lifestyle and sunning themselves in Spain, have instead been enjoying working on some great, and meaningful, campaigns and projects.

Earlier in the year, we were honoured to be chosen as the agency partner of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, for which we helped them devise a campaign around a Summer of Fundraising and Wearing Yellow (their brand colour), to help drive donations and engagement with their many supporters. It’s a great cause that’s worthy of support, and has made many strides forward in recent years (as you can see here, in the Interactive Timeline we designed for them.)

Moving away from yellow and into the green of cold, hard cash, our minds and hearts have still been focussed on pensions, savings and how we can improve financial education across the country. Our partnership with Pension Quality Mark has involved lots of out-the-box thinking and the odd bit of whacky illustration, but the really revolutionary stuff is still to come. Watch this space!

The siren song of The Miller is calling though, so it’s adios for now, and we hope to see you soon, fellow sunseekers!
