Big thanks to the Stand Out team, and also to Appleton’s digital agency Silver Chair who – as the article testifies – ensured the social media activity tied in beautifully with the live experience.more
We’ve been working with the good folks at Canterbury once again, creating a brand-led match day experience for fans heading to the QBE Autumn Internationals at Twickenham.
Working with the brilliant Natural Theatre Company, we sent this irreverent bunch of characters out into the streets to play with the hoards of arriving supporters. They did the Haka, they posed for photos – they even popped into a Twickenham resident’s house to say hello.more
Our very own Guy Tremlett reflects on his time in the industry thus far in this week’s Event Magazine:
I got into the event industry because I got spotted at the New Designers graduate exhibition by Park Avenue. They invited me for an interview and their work blew me away, I didn’t know anything about brand experiences, but they seemed to combine all the areas of design, creativity and construction that I loved. I managed to get the job and have never looked back.more
A few of us took some time off on Friday to lend a helping hand to our charity partners Teens & Toddlers. The nature of their work – helping disadvantaged teenagers gain confidence and life skills by giving them the chance to mentor a young child through their first years at school – means the nursery and pre-school environments where the interactions take place need lots of care and attention to keep them looking great. So we got hold of some sandpaper, varnish and paint, and met up with some of those involved in the Teens & Toddlers programme at Woodlands Park Nursery in Haringay for a few hours of hard graft.
Ridwan and Cormac both completed the Teens & Toddlers scheme and are now members of the charity’s Youth Led Consultancy Board, who work together to raise awareness of Teens & Toddlers through their own first-hand experiences. When they’re not busy varnishing fences, of course.more
We love summer here at Flourish. The sun on our backs, the long gentle evenings, the warm breeze floating in off the Old Street tarmac. But what we really love about the summertime is when our friends and colleagues bring us biscuits galore from their summer hols. Like these, all the way from Budapest and France. Cheers Kath G, and the Scene 2 boys!
Here’s a veritable medley of treats from Guy T’s Greek week, Claire’s Sri Lankan adventure and Guy C’s family trip to semi-sunny Spain.more
The Flourish team were out in Brazil this summer delivering a series of guest experiences as part of Castrol’s FIFA Confederations Cup sponsorship.more
Our latest influx of treats came courtesy of a young Taiwanese lady we met recently called Nana Ho. Nana brought us a range of savoury Eastern delicacies, including these fish-flavoured crisps which polarised the office pretty much down the middle. Kind of like Marmite, in a packet.more
Here’s a great shot of Guy T getting stuck into the build of the Rum Bus – a mobile bar aboard a 1960s Bedford Bus for Appleton Estate Jamaican Rum.more
There are many benefits of having Google as a client, one of which is the chance to get our paws on some truly awesome technology. Paula and Adam took a rare few minutes out of managing the Creative Sandbox experience to try out Google Glass. Here’s Paula rocking them very nicely.more
An historic first for Flourish – our maiden voyage into TV commercials. Our friends at the NBA asked us to help produce a couple of ads to be shown live on Sky and also globally, to build excitement ahead of the 2013 NBA Finals. And here they are, featuring Didier Drogba…more
The Confederations Cup is in full swing in Brazil, and our team is out there getting a feel for things ahead of the big one – the 2014 World Cup.more
More biscuits in our tin from around the globe. American delicacies Teddy Grahams and Flipz landed courtesy of Adam, and the sweet milky chocolate ones at the front came back from Norway with Trine. And Dave found possibly the world’s only lime-based biscuits in Brazil, bringing them back to the office along with their strawberry counterparts.more
