Happy New Year all!
We always like to end a year with a review - best bits, client wins, new clients, achievements, successes etc. But 2019 was such a blockbuster year for us that we're starting 2020 in full throttle! So instead of looking backwards, here are four of our clients' top images from 2019 showing the fantastic years they all had.
A quick calculation shows us that we created and posted over 5,000 social media posts for our clients in 2019... wow. So here's to making 2020 the best year yet for our clients! 🥳🏆

Much more than just river crossings, the Severn Bridges created an invisible barrier between the South West of England and the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley on the other side. With the removal of the tolls in December 2018 we worked on a campaign to increase knowledge of the area to those in the South West with specific targeting to those around Bristol and Bath (over 1 million people).
