Doing buckets of good

Great to be part of the Black team doing Buckets of Good for the Red Cross. All charities are finding it hard going in the current cost of living crisis, so hoping this campaign will pull the right heart strings. Music always plays a strong part in building emotion and for this campaign we chose a track from composer Maurizio Malagnini – who also scored tracks for “Call the Midwife”. Credits: Agency Black.

Word on the farm

There’s nothing more powerful than hearing what farmers have to say about a product. So I went out and interviewed farmers up and down the country on behalf of Ancalf to find out exactly what the story was. The result a series of videos and print ads that gave refreshing new insights into how and why farmers are buying and staying with Ancalf. See the full story here: Share → Tweet
