Autism in the news

Posted by Lucy Chapple

Last week we arranged a background briefing for a national journalist with Michelle, an advocate who has three children with autism.

When asked to describe how autism impacts her children, Michelle told the journalist: “people don’t suffer from autism they suffer from a lack of understanding”.

Is this lack of understanding driven in part by inauthentic representations of people with autism in the news?

Putting a child in charge of Mother’s day

Posted by Amelia PuttTagged , ,

Our work with Florismart showcases the talents of independent florists, so for Mother’s Day we put that to the test by asking 4-year-old Aariyan to pick the flowers for a special bouquet for his mum.

Mother’s Day is a key date in the floristry calendar, and independent florists have the edge on supermarket counterparts with their ability to create amazing bespoke gifts. With Aariyan in charge, could our florist rise to the challenge and still create something beautiful?

This year has encompassed #MeToo and #TimesUp, the phasing out of Grid Girls and the publication of gender pay gaps; the battleground of gender equality is constantly gaining momentum. This leaves brands in a quandary, to overlook International Women’s Day looks stuffy, but by engaging with the day they open themselves up to debate on their motivation, and on their methods.

Putting local florists at the heart of Valentine’s Day

Working with Florismart and The British Florist Association, our PR work focuses on raising awareness of the UK’s independent floristry industry, highlighting the skilled craft of floristry. In turn, we want to encourage Brits to value and favour the work of their local high street florists over supermarket alternatives.

With Valentine’s Day being such a key moment for florists all over the country, we used the day to draw attention to independent florists. Read more “Putting local florists at the heart of Valentine’s Day”

Revealing the digital world as a double edged sword for UK youth

Posted by Beccy Churchill

On Tuesday 6th of February more than six months of planning came to a head as Safer Internet Day was celebrated across the globe.

Working with the UK’s official organiser of the day, UK Safer Internet Centre, we were briefed to make sure UK Safer Internet Centre was front and centre in all #SID2018 media conversations, so we needed a plan that would cut through the noise.

Knowing that many would release a story that focussed purely on the negative effects of the online world, we worked with UKSIC to develop a story that felt honest and positive for young people, not patronising. Read more “Revealing the digital world as a double edged sword for UK youth”
