Three for three!

We are so incredibly proud to have won Challenger Agency of the Year at the EVCOM (Event & Visual Communication Association) London Live Awards 2020 last night!

This award means more to us now than it ever would have in a ‘normal’ year – we have never been prouder of being a challenger agency in the most challenging of times.

This has been such an incredibly tough year for the events industry – and we stand united with the great work of the #WeMakeEvents and #oneindustryonevoice campaigns.

We’d like to dedicate this win to our incredible Herd, our extended freelance family, our long-term clients and those we’ve recently started working with – we hope to see you all face-to-face very soon!

Amazingly, we also had another TWO wins last night, with our incredible client Deloitte! We picked up Gold for Best Show of Creative Concept and Gold for Best Celebratory Event for The Retreat. We are absolutely blow away!

Entered five, came runner up in two but still managed to win four?!

You could have knocked us down with a feather last night… we had the most incredible run at the C&IT Awards and would like to thank the esteemed panel of judges for awarding us with so many gongs.

The Parent Trap

Spot the Stripes

We live in a world divided into two groups; “creative people” and “non creative people”. We do it with businesses too – even entire sectors – “the creative industries” implies that other industries are not creative, which is of course, nonsense. Creative isn’t a department at Brands at Work. It’s everyone’s job, regardless of ‘creative’ featuring anywhere in someone’s job title. If you currently doubt your own creative abilities, have a quick read of our tips on how to train your creative brain to find inspiration in anything, anywhere.

Mental Health Awareness Week

There is no doubt that our lives have been disrupted in unimaginable ways. We’re missing so many of the things we perhaps used to take for granted. The impact of weeks on end of isolation and monotony are leaving many of us feeling anxious, sad, lonely, and overwhelmed. It’s ok to not be ok. This is a pandemic, not a productivity contest. We’re pressing pause this week to reflect on how we can be kinder to ourselves and to others. It’s #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek – here’s a little summary of our reflections…
