Who do we work with?

And what do they say about us?

Party Pub Hire

You wont ever have seen anything as cool as this …. a giant inflatable pub. And if you have seen it, you know what we are talking about.

Think of the best bouncy castle ever and add in a bar, and we have been creating content for them including social media posts, videos and photography, a bit of influencer outreach, press contact and a some sales work.  We don’t want to over inflate this but it’s an amazing concept and we want one, now, in our canteen.

Whale Fest

A three day festival as part of the ‘wild and free’ campaign, we supported the event in Brighton by implementing a fully integrated social media campaign, engaging with press and journalists and targeted promotions to school and youth groups.

We even implemented an ‘on street’ awareness campaign that included the use of a life sized inflatable Orca touring round the local area and encouraging people to get their ‘whalefie’.

Brighton Fringe Academy

In support of the performers at the Fringe festival, we run a series of workshops and seminars on marketing and promotion. The aim is to help and support the performers promote and PR their shows with some of us occasionally undertaking some consultancy work for them on a one to one basis.

Sessions we have covered include finding your target audience, social media and low cost / no cost promotions.
