HOME: A Revolution Betrayed

In Autumn 2017 we worked with HOME to promote their 'A Revolution Betrayed' season. With a range of events and productions taking place across a number of months, we created a multi-format campaign which ran from September to the end of November. 

We included local press titles, the Guardian Guide (North Edition) and the MEN, across both their print and online formats. We then teamed this with a range of outdoor formats such as Metrolink Passenger Panels, Bus Streetliners and the Manchester Loop. 

Finally, to reach a greater geographical area and capture a range of relevant audiences (as well as prospect new ones), we implemented an online display campaign which included Facebook Promoted Page Posts.

Design Manchester Festival 2017

In 2016 we worked with Design Manchester to promote their fourth annual festival of design, talks, exhibitions and creativity. The 2016 Design Festival was the most successful Festival to date with 40,600 attendees compared to 21,000 in 2015. Our campaign generated 7,000 interactions across 3,500 Twitter and Facebook accounts, with a potential reach of nearly 17 million - seen as an increase of 400% year on year. 

As a result of this success we are very pleased to have been invited to work with Design Manchester to promote their 2017 festival. For DM17 we channeled a number of formats which included outdoor such as Metrolink passenger panels, Legal Fly Posters, Streetliners, and the Deansgate Digital Tower. We also incorporated the findings from their first online Media iQ campaign and implemented an informed, online display campaign to target regional press titles and specialist design websites. 

Jorvik Viking Centre use Dark Social

After having to close following the floods in 2015, Jorvik Viking Centre held it's grand reopening in Spring 2017.  To create interest prior to the relaunch, we implemented a Dark Social, online display campaign. 

We targeted families, mums, historians and education professionals to ensure we captured the most relevant and high sharing audiences.

We discovered that the Jorvik audience have a keen interest in Home & Garden material, as well as pet related copy, valuable insight which can be used for future campaigns.

Their results showed that the 'mum' audience pool shared the most content, Sunday proved to be the strongest day for engagement and the 300x250 creative generated the strongest CTR, Overall CTR was 0.28%.

Incorporating ‘Dark Social’ within Jorvik’s overall digital campaign proved to be an excellent way to target Mums as they decided on which family activities to book for the coming year.

The Launch of Adoption Counts

In Summer 2017 we were successful in our bid for the Adoption Counts tender. We were tasked with promoting the launch of Adoption Counts, a new collaborative adoption agency spanning Greater Manchester and Cheshire. 

We planned and implemented a wide-ranging media mix of outdoor, digital, online and social media formats to capture the right audience, in the right place, at the right time. 

Since implementing their launch campaign, we have continued to work closely with Adoption Counts on further campaigns such as National Adoption Week 2017.
