Britain’s best van

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Jean Claude Van Damme. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Van Morrison. All superb Vans (sort of) but we have to say that this is our very favourite van of all time…

“A sofa that turns into a bed so comfy you can sleep on it every night. That’s ace. I’m just a van. I don’t turn into anything. I wish I turned into a helicopter, or a tiny giraffe. That would be cool.”

It’s the incredibly eye-catching van we designed for our good chums at the Storage Bed Company complete with owls, tiny octopuses and bumble bees.

Keep your eyes peeled for it tootling around the streets (not that it’s hard to miss). Hopefully it will make you chuckle. It’s funnier than Ruud van Nistelrooy anyway.

“Would you like a sofabed that’s comfy enough to sleep on every night? Would you like to stash all your stuff in a handy storage bed? Would you like to be an owl? Owls are great.”

“A suitcase as big as a dolphin, enough shoes for an octopus army, 200 bumble bees, a cheeky penguin… what would you keep in yours?”

We’re working with Nickelodeon

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Many a time in the Together office have we entered into a fierce debate about who would win in a fight between Kung Fu Panda and Sponge Bob Squarepants.

So imagine our delight when Nickelodeon, the rather wonderful home of these marvellous programmes, asked us to give them a hand in producing a range of online and offline marketing material.

We’ll be putting together everything from sales collateral to online communications for Nickledoeon as well as their sister stations Nick Junior and (our personal favourite) Nick Toons.

I wonder if they can get us Kung Fu Panda’s autograph?

Sales River Cottage promotion with Westons Cider

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Not only do our pals at Westons make some of the finest ciders available to humanity, they also tend to send us some rather lovely work.

Our latest effort is a major on-pack promotion we’ve created for their Wyld Wood premium organic cider, with prizes from River Cottage, the spiritual home of all things organic and delicious.

We’ve attached promotion collarettes to bottles of Wyld Wood that each have a unique code. Consumers then take this code onto the dedicated microsite we created and use it to find out if they’ve won one of 10,000 amazing River Cottage prizes.

Prizes include exclusive dinners for ten and cookery courses for two at River Cottage HQ, as well as Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s latest book, signed by the man himself.

You can take a peek at the site we created here.

To celebrate our achievements we were going to attempt Hugh’s four bird roast. But we’re lazy so we’ll just have a Jammie Dodger instead.
