Clients

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

IKEA

We do both press office and brand campaigns for IKEA. Since we started working with the team there, we’ve collectively driven their coverage up to over 1,200 pieces each and every month across the homes and interiors titles, lifestyle and national media. But we’ve also brought a new approach, helping the brand to generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage. Our proudest achievement has been helping them move from tenth to first in the media’s eyes (when it comes to journalists rating the press office team in a Populus report on the category). We’re currently working on a series of bigger integrated campaigns with the team – having recently taken on a brand agency remit for the brand.

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, consumer offers and sponsorshipsas well as helping to land “be more dog” in the national psyche and doing things like launching O2 Travel with Kelly Brook and traditional seaside postcard art, alongside creating handset campaigns for everyone from Samsung to HTC, Sony to Huawei. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s SMB offer (from press office to creative work like this and this), helping to get the O2 message out to the nation’s small businesses. We also run their press office, with a constant wall of news generation around handset launches. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity (see Think Big below) and their youth action programme (see Go Think Big below).

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late-2013 and have since had the great pleasure of doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We picked up the reins of the account just as we were called upon to come up with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One – cue HTC’s “street of Gold” as we paved a London street for real to national media acclaim. Next up came the launch of the brand’s flagship HTC One (M8) at a media event in London attended by over 500 European journalists. Eleven magazine front pages later we more than doubled coverage for such an announcement. Since then, we’ve worked on sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel at one end of the scale and the quick-and-dirty invention of “#phonies” at the other. All of that alongside one of the busiest consumer tech press offices across the industry.

Isle of Man Tourism

Isle of Man Tourism is a formidable press office account that means we get to use our not inconsiderable travel and tourism skills and contacts to great effect – alongside some top quality news generation along the way. 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.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. On the one hand we run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year for the brand. With formidable consumer tech and lifestyle work we’re banging in the results and generally make sure it’s a well-oiled machine. Alongside our campaigns team bangs in the results with set-piece work to promote specific families of product. In recent times we’ve created the Sony Off-shore Gallery – the Zoom with a View – to support their 50x zoom range and we found a way to capture and Ewe-nique view of the Tour de France with some Yorkshire sheep. From hard working media relations to creative ways of getting the product message across, the team are kept pretty busy.

SEGA

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active is the UK’s leading group of Health Clubs and we’re fortunate enough to do all their UK consumer PR. From launching new classes to ensuring that our experts are in the media on a daily basis to helping with bigger consumer campaigns that get the brand into the news pages, we cover the full range of comms. We also work with Virgin Active on their social media activity with brand campaigns and content a core part of all that we do for them. What’s more, we’re also their corporate PR support, helping communicate the brand’s narrative to stakeholder and business audiences. And we also support the brands social purpose campaign – Active Inspiration – which is supporting younger women into a world of activeness.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early-2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. The programme is 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” and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. Telling the story of its gifting range saw us create the award-winning “£2.1 million Silver Penny” and launch its new Britannia design. No fewer than six national front pages were delivered for the announcement of the new British £1 coin. We followed that trick with another three front pages and over 200 pieces of coverage for its Bullion platform. And some crafty photography helped secure double-page spreads for its Landmarks series.

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.

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. We also work alongside their other marketing agencies to help come up with the big ideas that have helped to keep the brand at the heart of the sharing economy.

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.

With the world’s first Human Art Gallery, the team pulled a blinder taking the show into the nationals.

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.

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.

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.

Blurb

Blurb was one of Hope&Glory’s first ever clients and we now do all their social and editorial media work. The world’s best book self-publishing platform, we have delivered some stand-out campaigns over the last couple of years. First up, we created the “nation of storytellers” project which saw us collect a series of personal and unique accounts of first hand adventures from the general public, before we caught portrait photography of each and combined them into a one-off record of personal accounts. Then, to launch the brand’s magazine publishing product, we collaborated with digital design bible Dezeen to create the site’s first ever print magazine – appropriately enough a journal that examined the rise of 3D printing across various industries. Alongside these bigger set-pieces, we also help Blurb with their day-to-day press office, manage their UK social media channels and support their corporate profile raising (which has resulted in some results like this, this and this).

RealD

RealD’s mission is to perfect the visual experience on every screen and every device around the world. They are the world’s leading developers of display technologies that unleash the power of moving images and the incredible stories they tell. As pioneers in the world of 3D, we’re helping RealD to promote the unique experiences they offer, helping to develop the narrative around their new technologies and are bringing to life the magic that a 3D cinema experience can offer.

Hoolio

We helped launch Hoolio, an online platform that acts like a Netfix for fitness in early 2016. Hoolio’s aim is to put the fun into fitness by making it possible for you to workout with friends, integrate your wearables and track your fitness all via their clever website which hosts videos and workout plans from a list of the top fitness professionals on the planet right now. The team’s work to date has included a live fitness class launch of the product, interviews with the founders and trails of the new tech.

Heathrow

We’ve joined a brand-spanking new roster making Hope&Glory one of three agencies that’ll be working on consumer and business brand campaigns for the nation’s best airport (in our opinion at least). Whether it’s attracting families, bringing business fliers to Heathrow, helping build the brand reputation or telling the country about the truly formidable services at the airport, we’ve got plenty to get our teeth into. What’s fantastic about it all is that the team at Heathrow have an amazing track record for brilliant campaigning and backing stand-out creative ideas.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

IKEA

We do both press office and brand campaigns for IKEA. Since we started working with the team there, we’ve collectively driven their coverage up to over 1,200 pieces each and every month across the homes and interiors titles, lifestyle and national media. But we’ve also brought a new approach, helping the brand to generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage. Our proudest achievement has been helping them move from tenth to first in the media’s eyes (when it comes to journalists rating the press office team in a Populus report on the category). We’re currently working on a series of bigger integrated campaigns with the team – having recently taken on a brand agency remit for the brand.

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, consumer offers and sponsorshipsas well as helping to land “be more dog” in the national psyche and doing things like launching O2 Travel with Kelly Brook and traditional seaside postcard art, alongside creating handset campaigns for everyone from Samsung to HTC, Sony to Huawei. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s SMB offer (from press office to creative work like this and this), helping to get the O2 message out to the nation’s small businesses. We also run their press office, with a constant wall of news generation around handset launches. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity (see Think Big below) and their youth action programme (see Go Think Big below).

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late-2013 and have since had the great pleasure of doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We picked up the reins of the account just as we were called upon to come up with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One – cue HTC’s “street of Gold” as we paved a London street for real to national media acclaim. Next up came the launch of the brand’s flagship HTC One (M8) at a media event in London attended by over 500 European journalists. Eleven magazine front pages later we more than doubled coverage for such an announcement. Since then, we’ve worked on sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel at one end of the scale and the quick-and-dirty invention of “#phonies” at the other. All of that alongside one of the busiest consumer tech press offices across the industry.

Isle of Man Tourism

Isle of Man Tourism is a formidable press office account that means we get to use our not inconsiderable travel and tourism skills and contacts to great effect – alongside some top quality news generation along the way. 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.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. On the one hand we run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year for the brand. With formidable consumer tech and lifestyle work we’re banging in the results and generally make sure it’s a well-oiled machine. Alongside our campaigns team bangs in the results with set-piece work to promote specific families of product. In recent times we’ve created the Sony Off-shore Gallery – the Zoom with a View – to support their 50x zoom range and we found a way to capture and Ewe-nique view of the Tour de France with some Yorkshire sheep. From hard working media relations to creative ways of getting the product message across, the team are kept pretty busy.

SEGA

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active is the UK’s leading group of Health Clubs and we’re fortunate enough to do all their UK consumer PR. From launching new classes to ensuring that our experts are in the media on a daily basis to helping with bigger consumer campaigns that get the brand into the news pages, we cover the full range of comms. We also work with Virgin Active on their social media activity with brand campaigns and content a core part of all that we do for them. What’s more, we’re also their corporate PR support, helping communicate the brand’s narrative to stakeholder and business audiences. And we also support the brands social purpose campaign – Active Inspiration – which is supporting younger women into a world of activeness.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early-2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. The programme is 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” and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. Telling the story of its gifting range saw us create the award-winning “£2.1 million Silver Penny” and launch its new Britannia design. No fewer than six national front pages were delivered for the announcement of the new British £1 coin. We followed that trick with another three front pages and over 200 pieces of coverage for its Bullion platform. And some crafty photography helped secure double-page spreads for its Landmarks series.

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.

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. We also work alongside their other marketing agencies to help come up with the big ideas that have helped to keep the brand at the heart of the sharing economy.

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.

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.

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.

What’s fantastic about it all is that the team at Heathrow have an amazing track record for brilliant campaigning and backing stand-out creative ideas.

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.

Glasgow Marketing Board

We work with the Glasgow Marketing Board to promote the city as a leading destination for people from across the UK. With a focus on the fact that “people make Glasgow”, our campaigning is led not just by the city’s wonderful arts scene, thriving culinary culture, remarkable green spaces and awesome nightlife, but also by the people who make all of those things what they are – and make Glasgow the city it has become.

Holiday Autos

Holiday Autos is a client that we’ve worked on for the past year or so. While we initially kicked off a hard-working press office for them, we’ve now moved into creating some stand-out work that helps to bring their “Happy Holidays” promise to life. Most recently, we found ourselves creating the world’s first Driveable Deckchair for the brand – a road-worthy (and indeed legal) deckchair on wheels. Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform. There’s plenty more where that came from – with Hope&Glory helping the train to live the promise and generally deliver awesome-ness in the media.

Sanctuary

We’re working with PZ Cussons on a number of their brand campaigns, helping to take them out of the beauty pages and into lifestyle and mainstream news media. We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

IKEA

We do both press office and brand campaigns for IKEA. Since we started working with the team there, we’ve collectively driven their coverage up to over 1,200 pieces each and every month across the homes and interiors titles, lifestyle and national media. But we’ve also brought a new approach, helping the brand to generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage. Our proudest achievement has been helping them move from tenth to first in the media’s eyes (when it comes to journalists rating the press office team in a Populus report on the category). We’re currently working on a series of bigger integrated campaigns with the team – having recently taken on a brand agency remit for the brand.

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, consumer offers and sponsorshipsas well as helping to land “be more dog” in the national psyche and doing things like launching O2 Travel with Kelly Brook and traditional seaside postcard art, alongside creating handset campaigns for everyone from Samsung to HTC, Sony to Huawei. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s SMB offer (from press office to creative work like this and this), helping to get the O2 message out to the nation’s small businesses. We also run their press office, with a constant wall of news generation around handset launches. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity (see Think Big below) and their youth action programme (see Go Think Big below).

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late-2013 and have since had the great pleasure of doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We picked up the reins of the account just as we were called upon to come up with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One – cue HTC’s “street of Gold” as we paved a London street for real to national media acclaim. Next up came the launch of the brand’s flagship HTC One (M8) at a media event in London attended by over 500 European journalists. Eleven magazine front pages later we more than doubled coverage for such an announcement. Since then, we’ve worked on sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel at one end of the scale and the quick-and-dirty invention of “#phonies” at the other. All of that alongside one of the busiest consumer tech press offices across the industry.

Isle of Man Tourism

Isle of Man Tourism is a formidable press office account that means we get to use our not inconsiderable travel and tourism skills and contacts to great effect – alongside some top quality news generation along the way. 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.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. On the one hand we run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year for the brand. With formidable consumer tech and lifestyle work we’re banging in the results and generally make sure it’s a well-oiled machine. Alongside our campaigns team bangs in the results with set-piece work to promote specific families of product. In recent times we’ve created the Sony Off-shore Gallery – the Zoom with a View – to support their 50x zoom range and we found a way to capture and Ewe-nique view of the Tour de France with some Yorkshire sheep. From hard working media relations to creative ways of getting the product message across, the team are kept pretty busy.

SEGA

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active is the UK’s leading group of Health Clubs and we’re fortunate enough to do all their UK consumer PR. From launching new classes to ensuring that our experts are in the media on a daily basis to helping with bigger consumer campaigns that get the brand into the news pages, we cover the full range of comms. We also work with Virgin Active on their social media activity with brand campaigns and content a core part of all that we do for them. What’s more, we’re also their corporate PR support, helping communicate the brand’s narrative to stakeholder and business audiences. And we also support the brands social purpose campaign – Active Inspiration – which is supporting younger women into a world of activeness.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early-2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. The programme is 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” and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. Telling the story of its gifting range saw us create the award-winning “£2.1 million Silver Penny” and launch its new Britannia design. No fewer than six national front pages were delivered for the announcement of the new British £1 coin. We followed that trick with another three front pages and over 200 pieces of coverage for its Bullion platform. And some crafty photography helped secure double-page spreads for its Landmarks series.

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.

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. We also work alongside their other marketing agencies to help come up with the big ideas that have helped to keep the brand at the heart of the sharing economy.

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.

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.

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.

Blurb

Blurb was one of Hope&Glory’s first ever clients and we now do all their social and editorial media work. The world’s best book self-publishing platform, we have delivered some stand-out campaigns over the last couple of years. First up, we created the “nation of storytellers” project which saw us collect a series of personal and unique accounts of first hand adventures from the general public, before we caught portrait photography of each and combined them into a one-off record of personal accounts. Then, to launch the brand’s magazine publishing product, we collaborated with digital design bible Dezeen to create the site’s first ever print magazine – appropriately enough a journal that examined the rise of 3D printing across various industries. Alongside these bigger set-pieces, we also help Blurb with their day-to-day press office, manage their UK social media channels and support their corporate profile raising (which has resulted in some results like this, this and this).

RealD

RealD’s mission is to perfect the visual experience on every screen and every device around the world. They are the world’s leading developers of display technologies that unleash the power of moving images and the incredible stories they tell. As pioneers in the world of 3D, we’re helping RealD to promote the unique experiences they offer, helping to develop the narrative around their new technologies and are bringing to life the magic that a 3D cinema experience can offer.

Hoolio

We helped launch Hoolio, an online platform that acts like a Netfix for fitness in early 2016. Hoolio’s aim is to put the fun into fitness by making it possible for you to workout with friends, integrate your wearables and track your fitness all via their clever website which hosts videos and workout plans from a list of the top fitness professionals on the planet right now. The team’s work to date has included a live fitness class launch of the product, interviews with the founders and trails of the new tech.

Heathrow

We’ve joined a brand-spanking new roster making Hope&Glory one of three agencies that’ll be working on consumer and business brand campaigns for the nation’s best airport (in our opinion at least). Whether it’s attracting families, bringing business fliers to Heathrow, helping build the brand reputation or telling the country about the truly formidable services at the airport, we’ve got plenty to get our teeth into. What’s fantastic about it all is that the team at Heathrow have an amazing track record for brilliant campaigning and backing stand-out creative ideas.

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.

Glasgow Marketing Board

We work with the Glasgow Marketing Board to promote the city as a leading destination for people from across the UK. With a focus on the fact that “people make Glasgow”, our campaigning is led not just by the city’s wonderful arts scene, thriving culinary culture, remarkable green spaces and awesome nightlife, but also by the people who make all of those things what they are – and make Glasgow the city it has become.

Holiday Autos

Holiday Autos is a client that we’ve worked on for the past year or so. While we initially kicked off a hard-working press office for them, we’ve now moved into creating some stand-out work that helps to bring their “Happy Holidays” promise to life. Most recently, we found ourselves creating the world’s first Driveable Deckchair for the brand – a road-worthy (and indeed legal) deckchair on wheels. Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform.

We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

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 …

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.

Go Think Big

We launched GoThinkBig  – which offers advice to young people looking for a way into work and experience opportunities from a host of partners – in 2012 and have worked with them ever since. From a stakeholder launch attended by over 250 opinion formers and media to announce the initiative to major music-based campaigns to raise the profile of the brand, we’ve had a heap of fun. We hosted four gigs across the country with headline acts including Rudimental, Tinchy Strider, Chipmunk and Rita Ora. Then we created a band of individual musicians from scratch to support them – with a campaign that spanned social media (YouTube) and editorial. More recently we recruited 150 young people for work experiences shadowing Rizzle Kicks on their video shoot (over 200 pieces of coverage the result) and then we worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to offer experiences on a major re-mix project (the coverage included BBC Radio One, an Evening Standard DPS, eight minutes on London Live and BBC Radio 6).

Think Big

We work across O2’s environment campaigns. Our first major piece of work was the multiple-award-winning “Chargers out of the Box” initiative which saw us generate over 200 pieces of coverage announcing O2 would be selling phones without chargers – the only network in the world to do so. For O2 Recycle, meanwhile, we have run a series of campaigns. On-going, we work on quick-hit news stories to remind upgraders of the money they can make when they recycle an old handset. But our stand-out pieces of work have come from our O2 UpCycled campaign. We took the strategic step of showing what can become of recycled phones to get the message across. The results were the Walkie Talkies (which appeared on Jonathan Ross), the “Talk to the Hand” gloves and the “IT bags” (with scores of pieces of coverage between them). More recently, we created Robot Butterflies, to show how dead phones can once again emerge as objects of beauty.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform. There’s plenty more where that came from – with Hope&Glory helping the train to live the promise and generally deliver awesome-ness in the media.

Sanctuary

We’re working with PZ Cussons on a number of their brand campaigns, helping to take them out of the beauty pages and into lifestyle and mainstream news media. We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

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 …

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.

Go Think Big

We launched GoThinkBig  – which offers advice to young people looking for a way into work and experience opportunities from a host of partners – in 2012 and have worked with them ever since. From a stakeholder launch attended by over 250 opinion formers and media to announce the initiative to major music-based campaigns to raise the profile of the brand, we’ve had a heap of fun. We hosted four gigs across the country with headline acts including Rudimental, Tinchy Strider, Chipmunk and Rita Ora. Then we created a band of individual musicians from scratch to support them – with a campaign that spanned social media (YouTube) and editorial. More recently we recruited 150 young people for work experiences shadowing Rizzle Kicks on their video shoot (over 200 pieces of coverage the result) and then we worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to offer experiences on a major re-mix project (the coverage included BBC Radio One, an Evening Standard DPS, eight minutes on London Live and BBC Radio 6).

Think Big

We work across O2’s environment campaigns. Our first major piece of work was the multiple-award-winning “Chargers out of the Box” initiative which saw us generate over 200 pieces of coverage announcing O2 would be selling phones without chargers – the only network in the world to do so. For O2 Recycle, meanwhile, we have run a series of campaigns. On-going, we work on quick-hit news stories to remind upgraders of the money they can make when they recycle an old handset. But our stand-out pieces of work have come from our O2 UpCycled campaign. We took the strategic step of showing what can become of recycled phones to get the message across. The results were the Walkie Talkies (which appeared on Jonathan Ross), the “Talk to the Hand” gloves and the “IT bags” (with scores of pieces of coverage between them). More recently, we created Robot Butterflies, to show how dead phones can once again emerge as objects of beauty.

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.

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.

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.

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

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

IKEA

We do both press office and brand campaigns for IKEA. Since we started working with the team there, we’ve collectively driven their coverage up to over 1,200 pieces each and every month across the homes and interiors titles, lifestyle and national media. But we’ve also brought a new approach, helping the brand to generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage. Our proudest achievement has been helping them move from tenth to first in the media’s eyes (when it comes to journalists rating the press office team in a Populus report on the category). We’re currently working on a series of bigger integrated campaigns with the team – having recently taken on a brand agency remit for the brand.

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, consumer offers and sponsorshipsas well as helping to land “be more dog” in the national psyche and doing things like launching O2 Travel with Kelly Brook and traditional seaside postcard art, alongside creating handset campaigns for everyone from Samsung to HTC, Sony to Huawei. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s SMB offer (from press office to creative work like this and this), helping to get the O2 message out to the nation’s small businesses. We also run their press office, with a constant wall of news generation around handset launches. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity (see Think Big below) and their youth action programme (see Go Think Big below).

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late-2013 and have since had the great pleasure of doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We picked up the reins of the account just as we were called upon to come up with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One – cue HTC’s “street of Gold” as we paved a London street for real to national media acclaim. Next up came the launch of the brand’s flagship HTC One (M8) at a media event in London attended by over 500 European journalists. Eleven magazine front pages later we more than doubled coverage for such an announcement. Since then, we’ve worked on sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel at one end of the scale and the quick-and-dirty invention of “#phonies” at the other. All of that alongside one of the busiest consumer tech press offices across the industry.

Isle of Man Tourism

Isle of Man Tourism is a formidable press office account that means we get to use our not inconsiderable travel and tourism skills and contacts to great effect – alongside some top quality news generation along the way. 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.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. On the one hand we run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year for the brand. With formidable consumer tech and lifestyle work we’re banging in the results and generally make sure it’s a well-oiled machine. Alongside our campaigns team bangs in the results with set-piece work to promote specific families of product. In recent times we’ve created the Sony Off-shore Gallery – the Zoom with a View – to support their 50x zoom range and we found a way to capture and Ewe-nique view of the Tour de France with some Yorkshire sheep. From hard working media relations to creative ways of getting the product message across, the team are kept pretty busy.

SEGA

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active is the UK’s leading group of Health Clubs and we’re fortunate enough to do all their UK consumer PR. From launching new classes to ensuring that our experts are in the media on a daily basis to helping with bigger consumer campaigns that get the brand into the news pages, we cover the full range of comms. We also work with Virgin Active on their social media activity with brand campaigns and content a core part of all that we do for them. What’s more, we’re also their corporate PR support, helping communicate the brand’s narrative to stakeholder and business audiences. And we also support the brands social purpose campaign – Active Inspiration – which is supporting younger women into a world of activeness.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early-2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. The programme is 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” and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. Telling the story of its gifting range saw us create the award-winning “£2.1 million Silver Penny” and launch its new Britannia design. No fewer than six national front pages were delivered for the announcement of the new British £1 coin. We followed that trick with another three front pages and over 200 pieces of coverage for its Bullion platform. And some crafty photography helped secure double-page spreads for its Landmarks series.

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.

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. We also work alongside their other marketing agencies to help come up with the big ideas that have helped to keep the brand at the heart of the sharing economy.

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.

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.

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.

Blurb

Blurb was one of Hope&Glory’s first ever clients and we now do all their social and editorial media work. The world’s best book self-publishing platform, we have delivered some stand-out campaigns over the last couple of years. First up, we created the “nation of storytellers” project which saw us collect a series of personal and unique accounts of first hand adventures from the general public, before we caught portrait photography of each and combined them into a one-off record of personal accounts. Then, to launch the brand’s magazine publishing product, we collaborated with digital design bible Dezeen to create the site’s first ever print magazine – appropriately enough a journal that examined the rise of 3D printing across various industries. Alongside these bigger set-pieces, we also help Blurb with their day-to-day press office, manage their UK social media channels and support their corporate profile raising (which has resulted in some results like this, this and this).

RealD

RealD’s mission is to perfect the visual experience on every screen and every device around the world. They are the world’s leading developers of display technologies that unleash the power of moving images and the incredible stories they tell. As pioneers in the world of 3D, we’re helping RealD to promote the unique experiences they offer, helping to develop the narrative around their new technologies and are bringing to life the magic that a 3D cinema experience can offer.

Hoolio

We helped launch Hoolio, an online platform that acts like a Netfix for fitness in early 2016. Hoolio’s aim is to put the fun into fitness by making it possible for you to workout with friends, integrate your wearables and track your fitness all via their clever website which hosts videos and workout plans from a list of the top fitness professionals on the planet right now. The team’s work to date has included a live fitness class launch of the product, interviews with the founders and trails of the new tech.

Heathrow

We’ve joined a brand-spanking new roster making Hope&Glory one of three agencies that’ll be working on consumer and business brand campaigns for the nation’s best airport (in our opinion at least). Whether it’s attracting families, bringing business fliers to Heathrow, helping build the brand reputation or telling the country about the truly formidable services at the airport, we’ve got plenty to get our teeth into. What’s fantastic about it all is that the team at Heathrow have an amazing track record for brilliant campaigning and backing stand-out creative ideas.

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.

Glasgow Marketing Board

We work with the Glasgow Marketing Board to promote the city as a leading destination for people from across the UK. With a focus on the fact that “people make Glasgow”, our campaigning is led not just by the city’s wonderful arts scene, thriving culinary culture, remarkable green spaces and awesome nightlife, but also by the people who make all of those things what they are – and make Glasgow the city it has become.

Holiday Autos

Holiday Autos is a client that we’ve worked on for the past year or so. While we initially kicked off a hard-working press office for them, we’ve now moved into creating some stand-out work that helps to bring their “Happy Holidays” promise to life. Most recently, we found ourselves creating the world’s first Driveable Deckchair for the brand – a road-worthy (and indeed legal) deckchair on wheels. Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform. There’s plenty more where that came from – with Hope&Glory helping the train to live the promise and generally deliver awesome-ness in the media.

Sanctuary

We’re working with PZ Cussons on a number of their brand campaigns, helping to take them out of the beauty pages and into lifestyle and mainstream news media. We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

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 …

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.

Go Think Big

We launched GoThinkBig  – which offers advice to young people looking for a way into work and experience opportunities from a host of partners – in 2012 and have worked with them ever since. From a stakeholder launch attended by over 250 opinion formers and media to announce the initiative to major music-based campaigns to raise the profile of the brand, we’ve had a heap of fun. We hosted four gigs across the country with headline acts including Rudimental, Tinchy Strider, Chipmunk and Rita Ora. Then we created a band of individual musicians from scratch to support them – with a campaign that spanned social media (YouTube) and editorial. More recently we recruited 150 young people for work experiences shadowing Rizzle Kicks on their video shoot (over 200 pieces of coverage the result) and then we worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to offer experiences on a major re-mix project (the coverage included BBC Radio One, an Evening Standard DPS, eight minutes on London Live and BBC Radio 6).

Think Big

We work across O2’s environment campaigns. Our first major piece of work was the multiple-award-winning “Chargers out of the Box” initiative which saw us generate over 200 pieces of coverage announcing O2 would be selling phones without chargers – the only network in the world to do so. For O2 Recycle, meanwhile, we have run a series of campaigns. On-going, we work on quick-hit news stories to remind upgraders of the money they can make when they recycle an old handset. But our stand-out pieces of work have come from our O2 UpCycled campaign. We took the strategic step of showing what can become of recycled phones to get the message across. The results were the Walkie Talkies (which appeared on Jonathan Ross), the “Talk to the Hand” gloves and the “IT bags” (with scores of pieces of coverage between them). More recently, we created Robot Butterflies, to show how dead phones can once again emerge as objects of beauty.

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.

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.

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.

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

ibis

Our remit for ibis, one of the world’s biggest economy hotel chains, involves launching new hotels and arranging press stays, as well as dialling up the brand’s “Rich & Famous” strapline through a range of tactics. We ensure our target media and bloggers get to experience the ibis difference through regular press stays across the country and we’ll be launching a host of campaigns later in the year to ensure we’re engaging our target ‘millennial’ audience to set the brand apart as a standout in the budget sector.

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!

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.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories.

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Virgin Active

Virgin Active is the UK’s leading group of Health Clubs and we’re fortunate enough to do all their UK consumer PR. From launching new classes to ensuring that our experts are in the media on a daily basis to helping with bigger consumer campaigns that get the brand into the news pages, we cover the full range of comms. We also work with Virgin Active on their social media activity with brand campaigns and content a core part of all that we do for them. What’s more, we’re also their corporate PR support, helping communicate the brand’s narrative to stakeholder and business audiences. And we also support the brands social purpose campaign – Active Inspiration – which is supporting younger women into a world of activeness.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been a Hope&Glory client since early-2013 and we’ve been busy ever since. The programme is 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” and the enduring appeal of Olympic coins. Telling the story of its gifting range saw us create the award-winning “£2.1 million Silver Penny” and launch its new Britannia design. No fewer than six national front pages were delivered for the announcement of the new British £1 coin. We followed that trick with another three front pages and over 200 pieces of coverage for its Bullion platform. And some crafty photography helped secure double-page spreads for its Landmarks series.

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.

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. We also work alongside their other marketing agencies to help come up with the big ideas that have helped to keep the brand at the heart of the sharing economy.

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.

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.

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.

Blurb

Blurb was one of Hope&Glory’s first ever clients and we now do all their social and editorial media work. The world’s best book self-publishing platform, we have delivered some stand-out campaigns over the last couple of years. First up, we created the “nation of storytellers” project which saw us collect a series of personal and unique accounts of first hand adventures from the general public, before we caught portrait photography of each and combined them into a one-off record of personal accounts. Then, to launch the brand’s magazine publishing product, we collaborated with digital design bible Dezeen to create the site’s first ever print magazine – appropriately enough a journal that examined the rise of 3D printing across various industries. Alongside these bigger set-pieces, we also help Blurb with their day-to-day press office, manage their UK social media channels and support their corporate profile raising (which has resulted in some results like this, this and this).

RealD

RealD’s mission is to perfect the visual experience on every screen and every device around the world. They are the world’s leading developers of display technologies that unleash the power of moving images and the incredible stories they tell. As pioneers in the world of 3D, we’re helping RealD to promote the unique experiences they offer, helping to develop the narrative around their new technologies and are bringing to life the magic that a 3D cinema experience can offer.

Hoolio

We helped launch Hoolio, an online platform that acts like a Netfix for fitness in early 2016. Hoolio’s aim is to put the fun into fitness by making it possible for you to workout with friends, integrate your wearables and track your fitness all via their clever website which hosts videos and workout plans from a list of the top fitness professionals on the planet right now. The team’s work to date has included a live fitness class launch of the product, interviews with the founders and trails of the new tech.

Heathrow

We’ve joined a brand-spanking new roster making Hope&Glory one of three agencies that’ll be working on consumer and business brand campaigns for the nation’s best airport (in our opinion at least). Whether it’s attracting families, bringing business fliers to Heathrow, helping build the brand reputation or telling the country about the truly formidable services at the airport, we’ve got plenty to get our teeth into. What’s fantastic about it all is that the team at Heathrow have an amazing track record for brilliant campaigning and backing stand-out creative ideas.

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.

Glasgow Marketing Board

We work with the Glasgow Marketing Board to promote the city as a leading destination for people from across the UK. With a focus on the fact that “people make Glasgow”, our campaigning is led not just by the city’s wonderful arts scene, thriving culinary culture, remarkable green spaces and awesome nightlife, but also by the people who make all of those things what they are – and make Glasgow the city it has become.

Holiday Autos

Holiday Autos is a client that we’ve worked on for the past year or so. While we initially kicked off a hard-working press office for them, we’ve now moved into creating some stand-out work that helps to bring their “Happy Holidays” promise to life. Most recently, we found ourselves creating the world’s first Driveable Deckchair for the brand – a road-worthy (and indeed legal) deckchair on wheels. Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform. There’s plenty more where that came from – with Hope&Glory helping the train to live the promise and generally deliver awesome-ness in the media.

Sanctuary

We’re working with PZ Cussons on a number of their brand campaigns, helping to take them out of the beauty pages and into lifestyle and mainstream news media. We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

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 …

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.

Go Think Big

We launched GoThinkBig  – which offers advice to young people looking for a way into work and experience opportunities from a host of partners – in 2012 and have worked with them ever since. From a stakeholder launch attended by over 250 opinion formers and media to announce the initiative to major music-based campaigns to raise the profile of the brand, we’ve had a heap of fun. We hosted four gigs across the country with headline acts including Rudimental, Tinchy Strider, Chipmunk and Rita Ora. Then we created a band of individual musicians from scratch to support them – with a campaign that spanned social media (YouTube) and editorial. More recently we recruited 150 young people for work experiences shadowing Rizzle Kicks on their video shoot (over 200 pieces of coverage the result) and then we worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to offer experiences on a major re-mix project (the coverage included BBC Radio One, an Evening Standard DPS, eight minutes on London Live and BBC Radio 6).

Think Big

We work across O2’s environment campaigns. Our first major piece of work was the multiple-award-winning “Chargers out of the Box” initiative which saw us generate over 200 pieces of coverage announcing O2 would be selling phones without chargers – the only network in the world to do so. For O2 Recycle, meanwhile, we have run a series of campaigns. On-going, we work on quick-hit news stories to remind upgraders of the money they can make when they recycle an old handset. But our stand-out pieces of work have come from our O2 UpCycled campaign. We took the strategic step of showing what can become of recycled phones to get the message across. The results were the Walkie Talkies (which appeared on Jonathan Ross), the “Talk to the Hand” gloves and the “IT bags” (with scores of pieces of coverage between them). More recently, we created Robot Butterflies, to show how dead phones can once again emerge as objects of beauty.

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.

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.

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.

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

ibis

Our remit for ibis, one of the world’s biggest economy hotel chains, involves launching new hotels and arranging press stays, as well as dialling up the brand’s “Rich & Famous” strapline through a range of tactics. We ensure our target media and bloggers get to experience the ibis difference through regular press stays across the country and we’ll be launching a host of campaigns later in the year to ensure we’re engaging our target ‘millennial’ audience to set the brand apart as a standout in the budget sector.

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!

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.

Universal Pictures

We work with Universal Pictures’ acquisitions team to bring some of the worlds’ best indie or niche films to the UK. Most recently, we ran a campaign for indie film Ten Thousand Saints. Starring Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer, Hailee Steinfeld and Asa Butterfield the coming of age film centres around New York’s late 80s punk scene. We secured a raft of coverage for the title including pieces on BBC, Q Magazine, Total Film and Hey U Guys.

Center Parcs

We have been working with the lovely folks at Center Parcs since April 2016, helping them reach their family audience through creative campaigns and a proactive press office.  We are support the new Center Parcs positioning around family togetherness, which many of the parents in the office feel great affinity to.  Most recently we have launched the hunt for the UK’s Top Treehouse to celebrate the launch of the new Center Parcs Treehouses at Elveden Forest, and worked with the ranger team to promote Center Parcs’ commitment to the local wildlife.

Aqua Sana

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.

American Express

Since 2015 we have helped American Express on product focused campaigns.  Our personal favourite is the Small Business Saturday campaign which helps promote independent small shops and their value to Britain.  To launch the 2015 campaign we took Countdown favourite Rachel Riley back to her first ever Saturday job and drove huge volumes of coverage by actively encourage media and consumers to “Shop Small”.  The 2016 campaign promises to be bigger and better!  We have also been consulting American Express on their rewards products and small business cards, as well as the exclusive Centurion programme.

adidas

We’ve just started work with adidas on their adidas running and adidas women categories. An integrated brief, we’re looking after all their press office needs as well as working across their social media content development and their influencer programmes. A pretty full-on piece of work and a lot of fun working on the world’s number two sports performance brand.

IKEA

We do both press office and brand campaigns for IKEA. Since we started working with the team there, we’ve collectively driven their coverage up to over 1,200 pieces each and every month across the homes and interiors titles, lifestyle and national media. But we’ve also brought a new approach, helping the brand to generate news on an on-going basis through the press office – quick, smart ideas that land great coverage. Our proudest achievement has been helping them move from tenth to first in the media’s eyes (when it comes to journalists rating the press office team in a Populus report on the category). We’re currently working on a series of bigger integrated campaigns with the team – having recently taken on a brand agency remit for the brand.

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, consumer offers and sponsorshipsas well as helping to land “be more dog” in the national psyche and doing things like launching O2 Travel with Kelly Brook and traditional seaside postcard art, alongside creating handset campaigns for everyone from Samsung to HTC, Sony to Huawei. Alongside our consumer campaigns brief we also support the brand’s SMB offer (from press office to creative work like this and this), helping to get the O2 message out to the nation’s small businesses. We also run their press office, with a constant wall of news generation around handset launches. As if that we’re enough, we also work with them on their O2 Recycle activity (see Think Big below) and their youth action programme (see Go Think Big below).

HTC

We’ve worked with HTC since late-2013 and have since had the great pleasure of doing all their UK press office work, alongside some awesome campaigns and mini-activations that sit somewhere in between the two. We picked up the reins of the account just as we were called upon to come up with a stunt to announce their Gold HTC One – cue HTC’s “street of Gold” as we paved a London street for real to national media acclaim. Next up came the launch of the brand’s flagship HTC One (M8) at a media event in London attended by over 500 European journalists. Eleven magazine front pages later we more than doubled coverage for such an announcement. Since then, we’ve worked on sponsorship activation with the creation of Selfridges Skatepark in the Old Hotel at one end of the scale and the quick-and-dirty invention of “#phonies” at the other. All of that alongside one of the busiest consumer tech press offices across the industry.

Isle of Man Tourism

Isle of Man Tourism is a formidable press office account that means we get to use our not inconsiderable travel and tourism skills and contacts to great effect – alongside some top quality news generation along the way. 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.

Sony

Sony is a tale of two teams with Hope&Glory taking the reins across the brand’s home, sound and digital imaging portfolio. On the one hand we run a slick press office, launching dozens of products a year for the brand. With formidable consumer tech and lifestyle work we’re banging in the results and generally make sure it’s a well-oiled machine. Alongside our campaigns team bangs in the results with set-piece work to promote specific families of product. In recent times we’ve created the Sony Off-shore Gallery – the Zoom with a View – to support their 50x zoom range and we found a way to capture and Ewe-nique view of the Tour de France with some Yorkshire sheep. From hard working media relations to creative ways of getting the product message across, the team are kept pretty busy.

SEGA

We’re working with SEGA on the launch of one of the brand’s biggest new titles coming to screens around the world in 2016. More on that front before too long.

Most recently, we found ourselves creating the world’s first Driveable Deckchair for the brand – a road-worthy (and indeed legal) deckchair on wheels. Its launch on Brighton beach at the height of summer 2014 attracted worldwide attention, bags of coverage and a tiptop spike in site traffic, which after all was the whole point of the exercise. We’re now working with the brand on our next set of projects to make sure that they remain in the media spotlight.

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.

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 …

Virgin Trains East Coast

We’ve been working with Virgin Trains East Coast alongside our remit on the Virgin Trains brand. We’ve done everything from relaunch the Flying Scotsman name under Virgin management to creating a glass that is always half full to help showcase their “Hop on Board” ale – a glass for “Hoptimists” no less. We’ve also been announcing new routes and working on their corporate messaging.

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains became a client in mid-2014 and we’ve been having a whole heap of fun ever since. We’re the brand’s consumer agency and have been helping them to bring to life the promise that, with Virgin Trains, you’ll “Arrive Awesome”. So there has been a whole host of work including the launch of the service’s first ever “Teddy Tracking” service – ensuring that if the worst happens to a favourite toy, kids can be reunited with their treasures (an invention that we came up with that has now been embraced by the brand). Then we launched their Tilting Cider – one of the finest beverages on the rails. And to cap it off, we hosted the world’s media for the launch of the Arrive Awesome ad campaign complete with Richard Branson on a Euston platform. There’s plenty more where that came from – with Hope&Glory helping the train to live the promise and generally deliver awesome-ness in the media.

Sanctuary

We’re working with PZ Cussons on a number of their brand campaigns, helping to take them out of the beauty pages and into lifestyle and mainstream news media. We’re going to be working with an interagency team to activate their next major-scale brand campaign, positioning the brand as the ultimate way to relax.

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 …

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.

Go Think Big

We launched GoThinkBig  – which offers advice to young people looking for a way into work and experience opportunities from a host of partners – in 2012 and have worked with them ever since. From a stakeholder launch attended by over 250 opinion formers and media to announce the initiative to major music-based campaigns to raise the profile of the brand, we’ve had a heap of fun. We hosted four gigs across the country with headline acts including Rudimental, Tinchy Strider, Chipmunk and Rita Ora. Then we created a band of individual musicians from scratch to support them – with a campaign that spanned social media (YouTube) and editorial. More recently we recruited 150 young people for work experiences shadowing Rizzle Kicks on their video shoot (over 200 pieces of coverage the result) and then we worked with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to offer experiences on a major re-mix project (the coverage included BBC Radio One, an Evening Standard DPS, eight minutes on London Live and BBC Radio 6).

Think Big

We work across O2’s environment campaigns. Our first major piece of work was the multiple-award-winning “Chargers out of the Box” initiative which saw us generate over 200 pieces of coverage announcing O2 would be selling phones without chargers – the only network in the world to do so. For O2 Recycle, meanwhile, we have run a series of campaigns. On-going, we work on quick-hit news stories to remind upgraders of the money they can make when they recycle an old handset. But our stand-out pieces of work have come from our O2 UpCycled campaign. We took the strategic step of showing what can become of recycled phones to get the message across. The results were the Walkie Talkies (which appeared on Jonathan Ross), the “Talk to the Hand” gloves and the “IT bags” (with scores of pieces of coverage between them). More recently, we created Robot Butterflies, to show how dead phones can once again emerge as objects of beauty.

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.

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.

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.

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

ibis

Our remit for ibis, one of the world’s biggest economy hotel chains, involves launching new hotels and arranging press stays, as well as dialling up the brand’s “Rich & Famous” strapline through a range of tactics. We ensure our target media and bloggers get to experience the ibis difference through regular press stays across the country and we’ll be launching a host of campaigns later in the year to ensure we’re engaging our target ‘millennial’ audience to set the brand apart as a standout in the budget sector.

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!

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.

Universal Pictures

We work with Universal Pictures’ acquisitions team to bring some of the worlds’ best indie or niche films to the UK. Most recently, we ran a campaign for indie film Ten Thousand Saints. Starring Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer, Hailee Steinfeld and Asa Butterfield the coming of age film centres around New York’s late 80s punk scene. We secured a raft of coverage for the title including pieces on BBC, Q Magazine, Total Film and Hey U Guys.

Center Parcs

We have been working with the lovely folks at Center Parcs since April 2016, helping them reach their family audience through creative campaigns and a proactive press office.  We are support the new Center Parcs positioning around family togetherness, which many of the parents in the office feel great affinity to.  Most recently we have launched the hunt for the UK’s Top Treehouse to celebrate the launch of the new Center Parcs Treehouses at Elveden Forest, and worked with the ranger team to promote Center Parcs’ commitment to the local wildlife.

Aqua Sana

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.

American Express

Since 2015 we have helped American Express on product focused campaigns.  Our personal favourite is the Small Business Saturday campaign which helps promote independent small shops and their value to Britain.  To launch the 2015 campaign we took Countdown favourite Rachel Riley back to her first ever Saturday job and drove huge volumes of coverage by actively encourage media and consumers to “Shop Small”.  The 2016 campaign promises to be bigger and better!  We have also been consulting American Express on their rewards products and small business cards, as well as the exclusive Centurion programme.

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.

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?

Marie Curie

We are working with Marie Curie, the charity that helps to ensure that those with terminal illness get the care they deserve in their final months, weeks and days and that those who love them are left with a legacy of happy memories. We deliver major-scale campaigns around the annual Great Daffodil Appeal and we’re also working with them on media and brand partnerships and a very special anniversary that takes place later in 2017 …

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 …
