Old Royal NavAL College, Greenwich

It is fantastic to be working with the Old Royal Naval College to promote the conservation of their Painted Hall. Deemed the Sistine chapel of the UK, their most recent advertising activity involved a highly targeted Media IQ digital display campaign integrated with a bespoke outdoor campaign which carried their striking creative across a range of premier sites across London.

Storyhouse, chester

This summer we worked on one of our favourite projects to date; the launch of Storyhouse, Chester’s brand new £37m theatre, library, cinema and arts centre. To create a sense of pride across the city, we created a tailormade media mix of outdoor, digital, online and social media advertising, as well as using local radio to spark conversation about the imminent launch.


NHS - Manchester Primary Care Partnership

2016 brought us a fantastic awareness campaign for Manchester Care Partnership to promote the extended opening hours of doctors practices. To circulate their message across a wide geographical area, we created a campaign focused on outdoor, radio, digital and press. We also used Admaxim (mobile & tablet advertising) and implemented language targeted adverts to reach various ethnicities including Hindi, Polish and Urdu.


Adoption counts - Awareness campaign

This summer we are proud to have been successful in our bid for the Adoption Counts tender. To promote the launch of Adoption Counts, a new collaborative adoption agency across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, we planned and implemented a wide-ranging media mix of outdoor, digital, online display and social media formats. Their artwork is impossible to miss across the city (and very cute!)



In Autumn 2017, we implemented an Admaxim Campaign for the Cheadle and Marple College Network. Tasked with boosting attendance at their college open days, the campaign ran across mobile and tablet devices to target prospective students and their parents. Post-campaign analysis found that, despite the heightening competition for the 16-18 audience, the campaign successfully increased overall attendance.

KMS were integral to the success of our launch campaign. As well as professional, they are a creative and smart team. They provided us with the small, dedicated-team feel but delivered the buying power of a National agency. A real go-to for the latest marketing trends.

Nancy Davies, Marketing Manager at Storyhouse, Chester

Working with KMS has been integral to the growth and development of Design Manchester’s DM festival. We have grown incredibly quickly and needed a hard-working, creative, marketing strategy to fit with our ethos. We first worked with KMS on DM16, when we doubled the size of the festival and the visitor numbers, welcoming 40,000 visitors across 12 days. The campaign they developed for us was a key driver in ensuring that footfall, and we're now working on DM17, looking forward to making the festival even more visible throughout the city and beyond.
