Hello everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the Clearbox Weekly. Here’s what we’ve been up to and what we’ve loved in the media world this week…
In Clearbox news, we’ve had a great week in our Holywood HQ and have been busy adding a fab new food brand to our client family (more to come on that next week) and we’re currently in the middle of redesigning our website. Team photoshoots are pencilled in for next week so we’ll show you the results of that on Friday – some of the gang are more, shall we say, camera shy than others!
Also in Clearbox news, we’re on the lookout for another placement student for a work experience opportunity so if you’re keen to boost your PR course portfolio or just want some work experience in a busy agency environment, get in touch via twitter, Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org
Outside the walls of Clearbox Towers, we’ve seen loads of really cool stuff this week, including the relocation of the Loch Ness Monster, a brilliant taxi-led campaign for London Fashion Week and the re-launch of one of our favourite entrainment and celebrity TV shows.
Addison Lee, London’s biggest taxi firm, played a blinder this week to celebrate London Fashion Week. The firm added a mirrored Mercedes to its fleet and sent it round the streets of London for a great campaign – snap a selfie (or #SelfLee as they’re calling it) of yourself in the mirrored paintwork of the motor and win free taxi journeys. A simple but brilliant idea – we love it!
Politics and PR can sometimes be a risky relationship, but the team at Hope and Glory married the two together brilliantly by relocating the Loch Ness Monster to Lake Windermere as D-day looms for the vote on Scottish Independence.
TV3’s Xpose, a Clearbox TV favourite, has recently undergone a makeover, added a new presenter and extended its run time to an hour. Well done to all of the team involved and welcome to new presenter Peter O’Riordan.
Finally, we’d like to wish a big friend of Clearbox all the best as he moves on to pastures new. Tarek El-Hawary from our partner agency Fever PR leaves his post today to take up a new role at amazon.co.uk. Good luck Tarek!
That’s all for this week – see you again next time…
