    07.08.13 Copyist Cool - Guardian G2 cover feature

    thumb

    We’ve been working with copyist artist Susie Ray for a couple of months now planning and managing all national PR activity.  We were delighted to secure a three page Guardian feature which made the front page of G2 recently. Journalist Stuart Jeffries took part in a masterclass with Susie and shared his efforts on the front cover - what he lacked in Manet talent, he made up for with enthusiasm. You can read the whole feature on the Guardian’s website and you can see more of Susie’s work in her gallery in Padstow http://www.susierayoriginals.co.uk/


    24.06.13 Tea, training and tweets with The Jewellery Editor

    thumb

    Last week I (Lotte) was in the big smoke / sunny Kensington for a meeting with one of our favourite clients The Jewellery Editor. We’ve been working with co-founders Maria and Christine for three years now and it fantastic to see the business grow with new team members.

    The Vine has been responsible for community management and has grown the social media presence from scratch. We are now handing over the reins to the internal team (with our continued support) so we can focus on brand and marketing strategy. Maria snapped this photo during our training session and I thought it captured the natural, informal relationships we have with our clients perfectly! Below is one of my favourite videos from Maria so far this year - The Great Gatsby jewellery launch in NYC.


    23.05.13 Art Wide Open

    Open Studios Cornwall 2013 kicks off this Saturday and artists across the county will be throwing open the doors to their studios.

    03.04.13 Very British Weekend

    thumb

    I (Lotte) spent a very chilly but sunny Easter weekend in Devon and managed to finally pop into the Museum of British Surfing in Braunton. I caught up with Pete Robinson, whose enthusiasm for preserving and sharing Britain’s surfing heritage is infectious. The current exhibition Sixties Surfer is full of incredible boards and memorabilia, including the awesome Drag Shute (pictured)!? It’s well worth a visit and the team has big plans for the future so check it out http://www.museumofbritishsurfing.org.uk.

    22.01.13 Chilly heifers

    thumb

    Yesterday, was a cold, snowy day in Cornwall. So naturally we thought we’d head over to Roskilly’s farm, where they make delicious…ice cream (amongst other warmer items!). You may have seen Roskilly’s popped up on Cornwall with Caroline Quentin last night,  experimenting with a Cornish cream tea ice cream! We’ve been training the Roskilly’s team so they can make more of their social media marketing to share stories and engage with their fans.
