GM Freeze and Thin Ice

In the fast-paced, deadline-driven, multi-tasking world in which we operate, it always stops us in our tracks when one of our clients sends us an unsolicited compliment. We recently received a lovely testimonial from GM Freeze.

The organisation is an umbrella campaign working towards a moratorium on genetically modified food and farming in the UK, and opposes the patenting of genetic resources. Instead it is advocating a world in which our food is produced responsibly, fairly and sustainably.

Its members include farmers, scientists, retailers, grassroots campaigners and organisations including the Soil Association, Friends of the Earth and Garden Organic.

For the last three years we have worked with GM Freeze to produce Thin Ice, a quarterly member newsletter, and were delighted to receive this comment from Liz O’Neill, GM Freeze's Director of Campaign Group:

'Andrew has made the production of our quarterly newsletter a breeze – he is creative, quick, reliable and responsive to my often changing requests, all on a tight budget.'

BFMD presentation

Business Forum Mid Devon – Food & Drink Showcase

As Chair of Business Forum Mid Devon (BFMD), our designer Andrew Lathwell organised a food and drink networking event at Tiverton Hotel.

More than 40 attendees enjoyed sampling the wares of local producers of cider, preserves, coffee, wine, confectionary, rum and more, before hearing two talks.

First: Andrew gave a presentation on how to create a food and drink brand, running through one methodology for developing key messges and determining brand personality. He also demonstrated how similar products can be given a distinctive look or personality that helps them stand out from the crowd.

Second: John Sheaves of Taste of the West (TotW) presented on how to produce post-Brexit food and drink, asking 'Are we ready?' and describing some of the preparations that TotW members are making for Brexit. He also described TotW's own journey of growth and how its branding was developed to reflect its Britishness.

Celebrating Sedberghians’ achievements

We have worked with Sedbergh School - one of the top educational institutions in the North of England - for more than ten years, variously designing and producing its marketing collateral along with numerous fundraising and legacy campaigns.

As Sedbergh School approaches its 500th anniversary we have produced the latest in a series of Sedbergh timeline displays: on 'Entrepreneurs'. This follows our previous timelines celebrating the achievements of Sedberghians in a wide range of fields including Science, Religion & Theology, Philanthropy, the Military, Politics & Law, Rugby and Media & Arts - amongst others.
