One of the nicest shops in Halifax (and the world) are celebrating their 10th Birthday!


We are the VERY lucky beggars who have worked with them to design their pretty new flyer... hurrah!


Not only did we design the flyer for Gallery 339, we arranged the printing for them too - ta da!


P.s. We heart Gallery 339.

We were kindly recommend by an existing client (the lovely Helen from HS Group Fitness) to design and build a website for Saks Beauty salon in Halifax.


The brief: follow the Saks brand guidelines, make it look exactly like the main Saks website, to include all the price list information and to include all the current marketing materials which Saks had issued.


We're very excited that the new website launched today! However we have already mentally spent all the money on their amazing sounding treatments...


Skin Peel anyone?!

Box Clever Hampers are a UK wide gift company who offer a stunning collection of sumptuous luxury hamper gifts. Filled with artisan food and drink their hampers provide a truly personal gift for individuals and corporate clients.


Fi & Becs were asked by Box Clever Hampers to design and launch a brand new e-commence website to replace their existing website which had an old fashioned design and was difficult to update.


The brief: a fresh, modern and genuinely British look / feel website to showcase their stunning collection of hamper gifts and allow customers to buy online easily and safely.


With some great features such as video content and gorgeous product photography (which we took!) - this website shows how a transactional shop website can look really unique and not like a boring template shop site!


We also wrote all of the copy on the website:


"Nestled within the picturesque Cheshire countryside, we take inspiration from our rural roots and delight in celebrating the very best of British produce."


"A quirky take on the traditional pub classic, our ‘Pie and a Pint’ is a scrumptious feast ideal for ale-lovers."


"Delight the lady in your life with our ‘Bubbles, Truffles and Treats’ - a delectable collection of indulgent goodies."


We are so pleased to develop and launch this website, their gifts are stunning and blooming delicious!!


Please take a look:

Not many things give us more glee than seeing one of our client press releases getting fantastic coverage!


When our client Waugh Brow Farm Shop had their beloved chicken statue stolen we decided that action must be taken. We quickly (even though Becs was actually on holiday in foreign climes!) worked with Ruth Jones (owner of the farm) to put together a press release to help get their chicken back!


After lots of contacting local papers we were really pleased that the story was picked up by 4 local titles, featured on their websites (number 4 Most-Read story!) and was printed in the local papers!


This story was on page 3 (sure there's a joke in there somewhere about chicken breasts on page 3...)


Need some help with your PR? Just get in touch with us!

Last night we were really pleased to host a focus group over in Ireland for a very exciting new client (all top secret at the moment!).


Here we are in the room beforehand waiting for people to arrive... carrying out some important last minute preparation of course (hmmm we're never too old to amuse ourselves taking random photos of each other being daft).


The Focus Group was fantastic, 8 people took part, our client was delighted with the whole session and we got some brilliant insight which they can put to use in their product development - all in a days work!

Waugh Brow Farm is a family run farm shop near Knustford in Cheshire. With over 130 cattle, a handful of sheep, some pigs and a flock of chickens the farm shop is known for stocking deliciously fresh local produce and has been in operation since 1985.


We were asked by Waugh Brow Farm to develop a new logo and design a new website to replace their existing out of date marketing materials and website.


The brief: friendly, local, farm shop with delicious produce based on a real working farm.


We have adored building this website (moo!) and writing all of the wording:


"Here at Waugh Brow Farm Shop we've been providing scrumptious, fresh local produce and homemade goodies for over 25 years. Located in the moo-tiful Cheshire countryside near Knutsford we're a genuine family-run working farm (with the cows to prove it!).


Our lovely farm shop is a traditional Butchers but we also have a tasty deli counter, homecooked meals, seasonal fresh veg, a fabulous snack shack (offering tasty food, cakes, coffee and more) plus a farm yard fun area for the kiddies!"


Please visit and take a look around the farmy loveliness!

We Will Get You Moving are a flat fee estate agency service based in Warrington. They focus on offering the complete estate agency service at a fraction of the cost of a ‘standard’ high street agent.


Chris from We Will Get You Moving contacted us as he wanted to create a brand to represent the modern, forward-thinking nature of his new estate agency business. After spending time with Chris to understand his business, we created their perfect brand and have worked with them on a number of projects including their logo and website.


What a fun job to work on!
