At the Making London conference last week, I pondered why the acid test for a great idea is that everyone ‘gets it’ immediately.
Here are some of our latest obsessions, successes and joys.
After the success of World Book Night 2017, it was no small feat to pull off an even bigger and better campaign in 2018. Fortunately, Stand were up to the challenge and delivered another smashing campaign that resulted in 199 pieces of coverage and delivered an important objective – to open up the conversation on the ‘right’ way to read.
We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for this year’s Legal Week Innovation Awards, and the PRCA Dare Awards.

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?
National children’s charity, Youth Sport Trust has appointed Stand Agency to build a social and content communications campaign for its School Games project. Stand Agency will work with influencers and young people to encourage 14-16 year olds to be more active.
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?
Stand Agency is adding to its award cabinet having won the coveted Legal PR and Media Comms award at last night’s LexisNexis Awards.
We were awarded for our work with Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) on the fight for fairer probate fees which encouraged the Government to back down on its proposal, after the Ministry of Justice published a consultation paper planning significant fee rises.
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.
