Clients

adidas

We’ve been working with adidas since November 2015. Initially focusing on Running and Women’s Training, we’ve also recently made it onto their global events roster, building towards a major launch to be announced imminently. An integrated brief, we look after their press office as well as developing content across their social media platforms and for their influencer programmes. The team works relentlessly to drive consistent coverage results across the board, from new product launches to wider fitness and fashion features to talent-led pieces with local social media influencers and adidas global ambassadors. Alongside the day-to-day we also promote the adidas London run club, adidas Runners, creating content and taking media and influencers on various runs across London, as well as working on adidas’ brand new series of major closed road running events throughout the heart of London, the adidas City Runs series, kicking off in October with the Shoreditch 10k.

IKEA

We do both daily press office and brand campaigns alongside influencer work for IKEA. We’ve helped the brand generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage across not only interiors press, but also national, lifestyle and tech. Having taken on a brand agency remit, we’ve also worked with IKEA on a series of bigger integrated campaigns over the last few years such as The Bed and Breakfast Café and more recently The DIY Dining Club. This is all in addition to showcasing designer collaborations, bi-annual trends and expertise in the Life at Home, as well as working closely with the in-house team to make sure that IKEA is front of mind with the media.

O2

We do broad range of work with O2, the UK’s favourite mobile network. We deliver activations to promote their brand campaigns, new products and consumer offers as well as driving “More for you” messaging through all of our activity. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s music and sports sponsorships and activations, bringing to life their venues, the acts they feature, and getting fans closer to the action. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity and their youth action programme.

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late 2013 doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We kicked off with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One, the “street of gold” as we covered an actual London street to national media acclaim. Along with a hardworking press office which ranges from managing reviews to securing mass coverage for our phone’s starring role in Love Island, our work has included sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel as well the quick-and-dirty invention of award-winning “#phonies”. More recently, we have created the first makeup range for selfies, created a dress made from gold milk for Kelly Brook, and brought the squeezy camera function of the HTC U11 to life with Tom Daley’s extreme diving selfies.

Airbnb

We’ve been working with the quite remarkable Airbnb since the start of 2015 and have been having an awesome time doing so. We look after everything for the brand in the UK from creative press office stories, hitting the travel and lifestyle media, news generation, bigger consumer campaigns and supporting the brand’s corporate efforts along the way. Since the launch of Trips in November 2016, Airbnb has been in an exciting period of transition, building on their core home-sharing proposition to provide a wider travel offering.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early 2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. Our focus has been turning The Royal Mint into a consumer brand in the UK consciousness and we’re helping create a narrative that tells of its 1,000-year history while demonstrating its enduring relevance in the twenty first century. Encouraging people to collect coins from change as a marker of British cultural history has seen us deliver stories of the “rarest coin in Britain”, the “unseen effigy” of Edward VIII and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. We had the great honour of unveiling the fifth effigy of the Queen to appear on British coinage, working with the National Portrait Gallery to show the portraits, displaying the evolution of the effigy from 1953. As you’d expect, results were spectacular with a clean sweep of the nationals, including the front page of The Guardian.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. We run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year as well as managing IFA and CES product launches, influencer seeding, reviews and events. Alongside this, our campaigns team create both UK and pan-EMEA work to promote specific Sony products, achieving the tricky balance of media cut-through and in-depth product messaging. In recent times, we’ve captured never-before-seen photography of Icelandic ice caves, highjacked media commentary of 2016’s supermoon with a combination of expert tips and imagery, and created stunning video content involving professional snowboarders and LED suits at Snowbombing festival to promote the XB40 speaker.

American Express

We have worked with American Express since 2015 promoting a plethora of other American Express products and services as well as Small Business Saturday and the Shop Small campaign, which aims to highlight the vital role that small shops play across the country. Last year we celebrated man’s best friend and the all-important Pooch Pound, highlighted the importance of customer loyalty by looking at how far we would travel for our favourite small shops, and tapped into the power of Instagram to communicate our message. Our work with American Express has delivered over 2,500 pieces of coverage, but most importantly, consumer spend in small shops on Small Business Saturday has risen to £623 million (from £546 million) following our campaign in year one again to £717 million in 2016. Not only has this been a massive for the brand and the coverage generated, it has made a tangible difference to the way people shop.

Marie Curie

We started working with Marie Curie last year, helping to launch the annual Great Daffodil Appeal for 2017. Inspiration was easy to find as we delved deeper into the work that the charity, its hospices and nurses do, and working with the in-house team, we created a sustained campaign of UK PR activity throughout March that grew income, support and affinity for Marie Curie. Since then we’ve won some awards off the back of the activity and expanded our remit to Marie Curie’s retained UK agency, working on exciting new briefs and leveraging the Great Daffodil Appeal to create a symbol woven into the fabric of the nation.

NCP

NCP is one of our growing number of B2B clients – because we always think that variety is the spice of life. We’re helping the brand to reposition in the trade and business media and to tell its story of development from car park operators to full-service parking retail, marketing and management brand. We’re doing all you’d expect from a full-service PR team including working on media training and message development to create a new narrative, getting their CEO out and about in front of the right media, running a full-on features programme and hitting the major speaker events.

Meantime Brewing

We’ve had the sheer joy of working with Meantime Brewing – arguably the UK’s first craft brewer and still London’s finest – pretty much since Hope&Glory first started. The team bangs in the results on a day-to-day basis with new product launches, epic media product placement, blogger work and the general runnings of a super-slick press office. But we also get to do some stand out work with the brand to help elevate from the basics. Most notably we created their Hops in a Box campaign. The integrated work saw us create 12,500 Hops in a Box kits which we placed in over 150 pubs. We then sent hop plants to over 60 opinion forming media and built London’s first hop farm in the last 100 years. The story generated fantastic social media talkability and epic editorial coverage – but more importantly it drove sales across Meantime’s portfolio and dramatised the process of making the beer for discerning drinkers across the land.

Mr Black

We’ve been working with the artisan Australian cold-press coffee liqueur, Mr Black since June 2016. Working across the consumer press office and a number of campaign activations, we have been given the welcome task of getting Mr Black into the hands and cocktail glasses of discerning drinkers across the UK. Telling the amazing story behind this relatively new, but rapidly growing, Aussie brand – through intensive product placement, a packed features program and targeted news-gen.

Grahams

Graham’s is the world’s number one premium port and we’re working with Symington Family Estate to help tell its story. We’re also working to position Graham’s as a luxury brand. The work is first and foremost a busy drinks press office, with extensive product placement, seasonal work, tastings and great relationship-building with the drinks writers. But we’re also helping with campaigns around new products such as their 1952 Tawny, which our coverage helped drive across consumer lifestyle and national media to huge acclaim, making it their most successful launch ever. We’ve also been working on the creation of a super-vintage Port, Ne Oublie, which is a ruby port that has lain undisturbed for over 100 years. The launch generated such widespread coverage that the limited edition has all but sold out.

Cockburns

Cockburn’s Port is one of the UK’s favourites and next year celebrates its 200th anniversary. We have a whole series of campaigns in store for the brand as it hits this major celebration – delivering work that aims to mark its history and heritage, but also its contemporary values of being a vital presence at family and social gatherings. First up though, we have Christmas to get out of the way with work that should ensure that Cockburn’s is a feature of every gift list and drinks recommendation – following the success of our seasonal Father’s Day media work that saw over 30 pieces of product placement around the big day.

MEATliquor

We’re having an absolute riot of a time working with the lovely people at MEATliquor. Day-to-day we’re helping them to support the restaurants (10 in all to date with more to come) by making sure that they’re menus are in the media spotlight and that they’re being reviewed positively time and again. We’re also cooking up a whole series of campaigns to support key seasons – most recently launching their Dry(ish) January menu and the “Fall off the Wagon” offer. And there’s plenty more newsworthy silliness in the pipeline …

Whole Earth

We do product press office and campaigns work for the UK’s best-selling nut butters brand. Alongside that, we’re also working on activations to support the brand’s major sponsorships which includ British Triathlon and Whole Earth Man vs Horse – the world’s toughest cross country endurance race across over 20 miles of Welsh countryside.

We’ve had the sheer joy of working with Meantime Brewing – arguably the UK’s first craft brewer and still London’s finest – pretty much since Hope&Glory first started. The team bangs in the results on a day-to-day basis with new product launches, epic media product placement, blogger work and the general runnings of a super-slick press office. But we also get to do some stand out work with the brand to help elevate from the basics. Most notably we created their Hops in a Box campaign. The integrated work saw us create 12,500 Hops in a Box kits which we placed in over 150 pubs. We then sent hop plants to over 60 opinion forming media and built London’s first hop farm in the last 100 years. The story generated fantastic social media talkability and epic editorial coverage – but more importantly it drove sales across Meantime’s portfolio and dramatised the process of making the beer for discerning drinkers across the land.

We’re not an air-kissing agency, but when we need to throw a launch bash, we can pack a venue with top class media-worthy talent, work the angles and nail every national and lifestyle title. That was supported with a media tour for one of the channel’s personalities, the legendary Conan O’Brien. For a couple of weeks, you couldn’t move for him in the media with page after page of coverage. Alongside a hard-working press office that sees truTV in the telly pages day-in, day-out, we also launch hero shows, most notably Ink Master – British Bake off with tatts not tarts.

IKEA

We do both daily press office and brand campaigns alongside influencer work for IKEA. We’ve helped the brand generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage across not only interiors press, but also national, lifestyle and tech. Having taken on a brand agency remit, we’ve also worked with IKEA on a series of bigger integrated campaigns over the last few years such as The Bed and Breakfast Café and more recently The DIY Dining Club. This is all in addition to showcasing designer collaborations, bi-annual trends and expertise in the Life at Home, as well as working closely with the in-house team to make sure that IKEA is front of mind with the media.

O2

We do broad range of work with O2, the UK’s favourite mobile network. We deliver activations to promote their brand campaigns, new products and consumer offers as well as driving “More for you” messaging through all of our activity. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s music and sports sponsorships and activations, bringing to life their venues, the acts they feature, and getting fans closer to the action.

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late 2013 doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We kicked off with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One, the “street of gold” as we covered an actual London street to national media acclaim. Along with a hardworking press office which ranges from managing reviews to securing mass coverage for our phone’s starring role in Love Island, our work has included sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel as well the quick-and-dirty invention of award-winning “#phonies”. More recently, we have created the first makeup range for selfies, created a dress made from gold milk for Kelly Brook, and brought the squeezy camera function of the HTC U11 to life with Tom Daley’s extreme diving selfies.

Airbnb

We’ve been working with the quite remarkable Airbnb since the start of 2015 and have been having an awesome time doing so. We look after everything for the brand in the UK from creative press office stories, hitting the travel and lifestyle media, news generation, bigger consumer campaigns and supporting the brand’s corporate efforts along the way. Since the launch of Trips in November 2016, Airbnb has been in an exciting period of transition, building on their core home-sharing proposition to provide a wider travel offering.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early 2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. Our focus has been turning The Royal Mint into a consumer brand in the UK consciousness and we’re helping create a narrative that tells of its 1,000-year history while demonstrating its enduring relevance in the twenty first century. Encouraging people to collect coins from change as a marker of British cultural history has seen us deliver stories of the “rarest coin in Britain”, the “unseen effigy” of Edward VIII and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. We had the great honour of unveiling the fifth effigy of the Queen to appear on British coinage, working with the National Portrait Gallery to show the portraits, displaying the evolution of the effigy from 1953. As you’d expect, results were spectacular with a clean sweep of the nationals, including the front page of The Guardian.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. We run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year as well as managing IFA and CES product launches, influencer seeding, reviews and events. Alongside this, our campaigns team create both UK and pan-EMEA work to promote specific Sony products, achieving the tricky balance of media cut-through and in-depth product messaging. In recent times, we’ve captured never-before-seen photography of Icelandic ice caves, highjacked media commentary of 2016’s supermoon with a combination of expert tips and imagery, and created stunning video content involving professional snowboarders and LED suits at Snowbombing festival to promote the XB40 speaker.

American Express

We have worked with American Express since 2015 promoting a plethora of other American Express products and services as well as Small Business Saturday and the Shop Small campaign, which aims to highlight the vital role that small shops play across the country. Last year we celebrated man’s best friend and the all-important Pooch Pound, highlighted the importance of customer loyalty by looking at how far we would travel for our favourite small shops, and tapped into the power of Instagram to communicate our message. Our work with American Express has delivered over 2,500 pieces of coverage, but most importantly, consumer spend in small shops on Small Business Saturday has risen to £623 million (from £546 million) following our campaign in year one again to £717 million in 2016. Not only has this been a massive for the brand and the coverage generated, it has made a tangible difference to the way people shop.

Marie Curie

We started working with Marie Curie last year, helping to launch the annual Great Daffodil Appeal for 2017. Inspiration was easy to find as we delved deeper into the work that the charity, its hospices and nurses do, and working with the in-house team, we created a sustained campaign of UK PR activity throughout March that grew income, support and affinity for Marie Curie. Since then we’ve won some awards off the back of the activity and expanded our remit to Marie Curie’s retained UK agency, working on exciting new briefs and leveraging the Great Daffodil Appeal to create a symbol woven into the fabric of the nation.

But we also get to do some stand out work with the brand to help elevate from the basics. Most notably we created their Hops in a Box campaign. The integrated work saw us create 12,500 Hops in a Box kits which we placed in over 150 pubs. We then sent hop plants to over 60 opinion forming media and built London’s first hop farm in the last 100 years.

Aqua Sana is a brand spanking new client for Hope&Glory.  The Spa offering at Center Parcs is a brand and PR team in its own right.  Not only have we been enjoying trips to the spa, we have developed a campaign which focuses on promoting the tranquillity of the Aqua Sana forest-based spas, while helping democratise the spa experience.

Opodo

We started work with leading European online travel agent Opodo in mid-2015 and since then have been setting up their UK press office, delivering news generation left, right and centre and generally helping the brand re-establish its voice in the UK media – from the travel pages to the news sections.

eDreams

Opodo’s sister brand eDreams is a force to be reckoned with in its native markets of Spain, Portugal and Italy. We’ve been helping the brand establish itself in the UK market as a leading voice in the short haul flights and budget airline sector. We’ve also been helping them with their issues management along the way.

Neat Nutrition

We’re working with new nutrition brand, Neat Nutrition to help launch their range of Protein products onto the market. With a premium positioning, the team at Neat has spent years finding the best ingredients for their range and are now launching it on the world with our help …

IMG Events

IMG appointed us earlier this summer to provide PR support for its signature events across the UK including the Blenheim Triathlon, London Triathlon and The Color Run presented by Skittles series. As part of the brief we have been looking at creative PR activations to build general awareness and recruit new participants for each of the events. The Hope&Glory team has also be supporting IMG’s general press office as well as assisting with media and creative on-site.

East Village E20

The former athletes’ village at the Olympic Park in East London is fast-becoming one of the City’s most desirable new neighbourhoods. We’re working with the main property owner (Get Living London) and with the residents, new retailers and everyone else involved to show how E20 could become a new home for thousands of people who want to live in the city …

adidas

We’ve been working with adidas since November 2015. Initially focusing on Running and Women’s Training, we’ve also recently made it onto their global events roster, building towards a major launch to be announced imminently. An integrated brief, we look after their press office as well as developing content across their social media platforms and for their influencer programmes. The team works relentlessly to drive consistent coverage results across the board, from new product launches to wider fitness and fashion features to talent-led pieces with local social media influencers and adidas global ambassadors. Alongside the day-to-day we also promote the adidas London run club, adidas Runners, creating content and taking media and influencers on various runs across London, as well as working on adidas’ brand new series of major closed road running events throughout the heart of London, the adidas City Runs series, kicking off in October with the Shoreditch 10k.

IKEA

We do both daily press office and brand campaigns alongside influencer work for IKEA. We’ve helped the brand generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage across not only interiors press, but also national, lifestyle and tech. Having taken on a brand agency remit, we’ve also worked with IKEA on a series of bigger integrated campaigns over the last few years such as The Bed and Breakfast Café and more recently The DIY Dining Club. This is all in addition to showcasing designer collaborations, bi-annual trends and expertise in the Life at Home, as well as working closely with the in-house team to make sure that IKEA is front of mind with the media.

O2

We do broad range of work with O2, the UK’s favourite mobile network. We deliver activations to promote their brand campaigns, new products and consumer offers as well as driving “More for you” messaging through all of our activity. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s music and sports sponsorships and activations, bringing to life their venues, the acts they feature, and getting fans closer to the action. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity and their youth action programme.

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late 2013 doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We kicked off with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One, the “street of gold” as we covered an actual London street to national media acclaim. Along with a hardworking press office which ranges from managing reviews to securing mass coverage for our phone’s starring role in Love Island, our work has included sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel as well the quick-and-dirty invention of award-winning “#phonies”. More recently, we have created the first makeup range for selfies, created a dress made from gold milk for Kelly Brook, and brought the squeezy camera function of the HTC U11 to life with Tom Daley’s extreme diving selfies.

Airbnb

We’ve been working with the quite remarkable Airbnb since the start of 2015 and have been having an awesome time doing so. We look after everything for the brand in the UK from creative press office stories, hitting the travel and lifestyle media, news generation, bigger consumer campaigns and supporting the brand’s corporate efforts along the way. Since the launch of Trips in November 2016, Airbnb has been in an exciting period of transition, building on their core home-sharing proposition to provide a wider travel offering.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early 2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. Our focus has been turning The Royal Mint into a consumer brand in the UK consciousness and we’re helping create a narrative that tells of its 1,000-year history while demonstrating its enduring relevance in the twenty first century. Encouraging people to collect coins from change as a marker of British cultural history has seen us deliver stories of the “rarest coin in Britain”, the “unseen effigy” of Edward VIII and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. We had the great honour of unveiling the fifth effigy of the Queen to appear on British coinage, working with the National Portrait Gallery to show the portraits, displaying the evolution of the effigy from 1953. As you’d expect, results were spectacular with a clean sweep of the nationals, including the front page of The Guardian.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. We run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year as well as managing IFA and CES product launches, influencer seeding, reviews and events. Alongside this, our campaigns team create both UK and pan-EMEA work to promote specific Sony products, achieving the tricky balance of media cut-through and in-depth product messaging. In recent times, we’ve captured never-before-seen photography of Icelandic ice caves, highjacked media commentary of 2016’s supermoon with a combination of expert tips and imagery, and created stunning video content involving professional snowboarders and LED suits at Snowbombing festival to promote the XB40 speaker.

American Express

We have worked with American Express since 2015 promoting a plethora of other American Express products and services as well as Small Business Saturday and the Shop Small campaign, which aims to highlight the vital role that small shops play across the country. Last year we celebrated man’s best friend and the all-important Pooch Pound, highlighted the importance of customer loyalty by looking at how far we would travel for our favourite small shops, and tapped into the power of Instagram to communicate our message. Our work with American Express has delivered over 2,500 pieces of coverage, but most importantly, consumer spend in small shops on Small Business Saturday has risen to £623 million (from £546 million) following our campaign in year one again to £717 million in 2016. Not only has this been a massive for the brand and the coverage generated, it has made a tangible difference to the way people shop.

Marie Curie

We started working with Marie Curie last year, helping to launch the annual Great Daffodil Appeal for 2017. Inspiration was easy to find as we delved deeper into the work that the charity, its hospices and nurses do, and working with the in-house team, we created a sustained campaign of UK PR activity throughout March that grew income, support and affinity for Marie Curie. Since then we’ve won some awards off the back of the activity and expanded our remit to Marie Curie’s retained UK agency, working on exciting new briefs and leveraging the Great Daffodil Appeal to create a symbol woven into the fabric of the nation.

NCP

NCP is one of our growing number of B2B clients – because we always think that variety is the spice of life. We’re helping the brand to reposition in the trade and business media and to tell its story of development from car park operators to full-service parking retail, marketing and management brand. We’re doing all you’d expect from a full-service PR team including working on media training and message development to create a new narrative, getting their CEO out and about in front of the right media, running a full-on features programme and hitting the major speaker events.

Meantime Brewing

We’ve had the sheer joy of working with Meantime Brewing – arguably the UK’s first craft brewer and still London’s finest – pretty much since Hope&Glory first started. The team bangs in the results on a day-to-day basis with new product launches, epic media product placement, blogger work and the general runnings of a super-slick press office. But we also get to do some stand out work with the brand to help elevate from the basics. Most notably we created their Hops in a Box campaign. The integrated work saw us create 12,500 Hops in a Box kits which we placed in over 150 pubs. We then sent hop plants to over 60 opinion forming media and built London’s first hop farm in the last 100 years. The story generated fantastic social media talkability and epic editorial coverage – but more importantly it drove sales across Meantime’s portfolio and dramatised the process of making the beer for discerning drinkers across the land.

Mr Black

We’ve been working with the artisan Australian cold-press coffee liqueur, Mr Black since June 2016. Working across the consumer press office and a number of campaign activations, we have been given the welcome task of getting Mr Black into the hands and cocktail glasses of discerning drinkers across the UK. Telling the amazing story behind this relatively new, but rapidly growing, Aussie brand – through intensive product placement, a packed features program and targeted news-gen.

Grahams

Graham’s is the world’s number one premium port and we’re working with Symington Family Estate to help tell its story. We’re also working to position Graham’s as a luxury brand. The work is first and foremost a busy drinks press office, with extensive product placement, seasonal work, tastings and great relationship-building with the drinks writers. But we’re also helping with campaigns around new products such as their 1952 Tawny, which our coverage helped drive across consumer lifestyle and national media to huge acclaim, making it their most successful launch ever. We’ve also been working on the creation of a super-vintage Port, Ne Oublie, which is a ruby port that has lain undisturbed for over 100 years. The launch generated such widespread coverage that the limited edition has all but sold out.

Cockburns

Cockburn’s Port is one of the UK’s favourites and next year celebrates its 200th anniversary. We have a whole series of campaigns in store for the brand as it hits this major celebration – delivering work that aims to mark its history and heritage, but also its contemporary values of being a vital presence at family and social gatherings. First up though, we have Christmas to get out of the way with work that should ensure that Cockburn’s is a feature of every gift list and drinks recommendation – following the success of our seasonal Father’s Day media work that saw over 30 pieces of product placement around the big day.

MEATliquor

We’re having an absolute riot of a time working with the lovely people at MEATliquor. Day-to-day we’re helping them to support the restaurants (10 in all to date with more to come) by making sure that they’re menus are in the media spotlight and that they’re being reviewed positively time and again. We’re also cooking up a whole series of campaigns to support key seasons – most recently launching their Dry(ish) January menu and the “Fall off the Wagon” offer. And there’s plenty more newsworthy silliness in the pipeline …

Whole Earth

We do product press office and campaigns work for the UK’s best-selling nut butters brand. Alongside that, we’re also working on activations to support the brand’s major sponsorships which includ British Triathlon and Whole Earth Man vs Horse – the world’s toughest cross country endurance race across over 20 miles of Welsh countryside.

Turner Broadcast

Turner Broadcasting is a brand owner of epic proportions. Right now, we’re working with them on the launch of the latest addition to their UK portfolio, truTV. With stand-out shows that include Red Neck Island, Hardcore Pawn, Fear Factor, Ink Master and Conan we have already got the channel off to a great start in the media and are plotting a series of campaigns as new shows launch for Turner during the course of the next twelve months.

truTV

We brought truTV to UK shores to massive media acclaim in the summer of 2014. The “larger-than-life TV channel with larger-than-life characters” was launched with an all-singing, all-dancing media launch bash that brought to life its key shows. We’re not an air-kissing agency, but when we need to throw a launch bash, we can pack a venue with top class media-worthy talent, work the angles and nail every national and lifestyle title. That was supported with a media tour for one of the channel’s personalities, the legendary Conan O’Brien. For a couple of weeks, you couldn’t move for him in the media with page after page of coverage. Alongside a hard-working press office that sees truTV in the telly pages day-in, day-out, we also launch hero shows, most notably Ink Master – British Bake off with tatts not tarts. With the world’s first Human Art Gallery, the team pulled a blinder taking the show into the nationals.

Square Enix

Hope&Glory works with Square Enix on their Final Fantasy franchise – specifically covering a brief for Final Fantasy XIV, the online MMORPG title that has taken the world by storm. We’re working on the game’s next major expansion with consumer brand campaigns being cooked up to help make sure the title remains the talk of the gaming and tech communities. Alongside, we also work on features and news generation for the title applying our gaming and tech know-how alongside a strong streak of consumer brand work.

Our focus is on promoting the island’s spectacular beauty and outdoor adventure – it really is nature’s playground – and its history and unique heritage – it really does have a culture all of its own. With a busy schedule of press trips, round ups, travel and lifestyle media work and trade news, we also help them make news. From capitalising on video footage of an Isle of Man grey seal taking a shine to a young diver to making it a destination for star gazers, we regularly help them breakthrough in the news.

We’ve been helping the brand establish itself in the UK market as a leading voice in the short haul flights and budget airline sector. We’ve also been helping them with their issues management along the way.

Neat Nutrition

We’re working with new nutrition brand, Neat Nutrition to help launch their range of Protein products onto the market. With a premium positioning, the team at Neat has spent years finding the best ingredients for their range and are now launching it on the world with our help …

IMG Events

IMG appointed us earlier this summer to provide PR support for its signature events across the UK including the Blenheim Triathlon, London Triathlon and The Color Run presented by Skittles series. As part of the brief we have been looking at creative PR activations to build general awareness and recruit new participants for each of the events. The Hope&Glory team has also be supporting IMG’s general press office as well as assisting with media and creative on-site.

East Village E20

The former athletes’ village at the Olympic Park in East London is fast-becoming one of the City’s most desirable new neighbourhoods. We’re working with the main property owner (Get Living London) and with the residents, new retailers and everyone else involved to show how E20 could become a new home for thousands of people who want to live in the city …

Get Living London

A brand new client for Hope&Glory is Get Living London, the country’s largest private sector rental agent. With over 1,000 properties in East Village E20 and with more to come in the area – and potentially further across the capital, we’re helping position Get Living London as a leading landlord in this soon-to-become highly competitive sector.

Accor Hotels

We look after the media relations and social media campaigns work for this leading hotel group – working across the ibis, Mercure and Novotel brands. We’re involved in everything from day-to-day press office work for each of the three brands to consumer campaigns helping them cut through to their respective audiences, whether families, business people or solo travellers.

Novotel

We’ve been working with midscale brand Novotel since early 2016, and our main focus is to ensure the brand is appealing to both a business and a family audience – dialling up the amazing facilities across the portfolio. We’ll also be working with the brand to open a new flagship hotel in Canary Wharf later in the year…watch this space!

Mercure

We started working with Mercure in Spring 2016 and we kicked off with a campaign to support the brand’s sponsorship of ‘Picnic Week’, and an event held at Somerset House in London. To mark the launch, we created the world’s first ‘Pre-Instagrammed’ Picnic Hampers– a basket of food that allowed you to perfectly capture a shot of your picnic without the need for a filter – with food creatives Bompass and Parr. Cool, huh? We also secured a host of celebrities to attend the launch event including Jonathan Ross and Donna Air. We’ll be working with the hotel to drive desire amongst the leisure breaks audience, and we’ll be looking to ensure guests know all about the chain’s hand-picked wines and locally sourced food over the coming months. Delicious!

FIJI Water

We’ve been working with the world’s most premium water brand, FIJI Water since September 2015. An intensive programme led by influencer relations across social channels, a packed events sponsorship programme and the establishment and management of all their UK social channels, we’re working on an integrated comms brief to help grow share in the waters market

AnyVan

We work with not your usual, run-of-the-mill van hire company, AnyVan, to help promote the brand through national news. Our work for the brand, which is one of the biggest removals businesses in the country all-told, has seen us take a national media stage to comment on the fact that young people will live in fewer homes in a lifetime than their parents – or their grandparents. We’ve helped create AnyVan Box Fort kits to help keep kids occupied while on the move and we’ve got bags more news generation in the pipeline. Who knew vans could be a great category to work in?
