Here at Raw HQ, we’re all settled into our new office and what a fantastic few months it has been since the big move! Not only are we now at a pride of place location on the prestigious Albert Street, we have a bigger office and, thanks to recent victorious pitches, a bigger client list too!
The last few cardboard boxes have been unpacked and our shiny new logo vinyls are up on the floor length windows for all of Harrogate to admire! Since moving in, our PR and design monkeys have been busy working on pitches and tenders for work and we now have several new clients which we will soon reveal.
In February, the team put on their best smiles for the Raw photoshoot! Harrogate-based photographer, Simon Johnston came in to take team snaps and headshots for our press releases, website and, of course, the Read Raw blog. Although it has taken a few weeks to all agree on one we like – here’s the long-awaited Raw team photo!
Last week, myself and Jo journeyed to MediaCityUK in Manchester for the BCSC Social Media for Shopping Centres seminar. We handle the social media for a number of clients, many of whom are shopping centres all over the country. The conference was a great opportunity for us to gain insight from some of the industry’s most proactive Social Media managers, seeing Justin Webb, PR Manager for the Trafford Centre and Jim Harris, Centre Manager of St Stephen’s in Hull, talk about their objectives and campaigns was very helpful. We’re already planning future campaigns for our clients and the advice at the conference was a big help!
We have some exciting things coming up at Raw. As well as the work we’re starting for new clients and the Tough Mudder training schedule Nicole has told you about, we’re doing our bit for charity. We’ll be hosting a Colossal Cake Sale for Help for Heroes on Thursday 5th April. From 11:30am, we’ll be outside of the Victoria Shopping Centre in Harrogate, selling cakes to shoppers with the help of young soldiers from Harrogate Army Foundation College. We’re asking friends, families, colleagues and local businesses to donate cakes and all things sweet to the cause, so if you can pop your apron and get baking, we’d really appreciate the contribution!
That’s all for now here at the Raw HQ I think, watch this space for upcoming news and announcements or follow us on Twitter, @RawCreativeLtd.
