So it's not just been all jollies over the Summer holidays (😆), we've also been super busy with some really fabulous client orders. All different briefs, sizes and contents. We thought we'd take you behind the scenes on three of our latest client projects to help you see how they go from idea to reality!
Bray Leino - Goody Boxes
Kicking off with a super fun Summer project. Creative and Communications agency, Bray Leino, came to us with a brief of a 'goody box' for a Company away day in August. They had 70 people to cater for with a set budget per head. They wanted a branded box and the contents to reflect their wellness ethos of the away day. We were delighted to help.
We discussed a few ideas for the box and landed on a 'pamper' theme, we included:
- Grace and Hartland Bath Salts
- ️Naughtons Green Clay Face Mask
- ️Pullin’s Bakery Chocolate Brownie
- ️Ooh! Chocolate 50g Chocolate Bar
This was a real array of local luxury products that put wellness at the forefront. For the branding, we decided to do something a little quirkier to our usual stamp. We created a colourful sleeve with Bray Leino's bespoke 'Carebox' artwork and logo.
The result was something special. 70 boxes were delivered directly to the away day location in North Somerset, ahead of everyone's arrival and they looked fab! Brief - nailed ✅
Brabazon - Completion Boxes
Brabazon are one of our loyal property clients and we have been supplying their completion gifts for a number of years now. Based up in Cribbs Causeway, their property developments are a hub for culture and creativity and embody Bristol's independent spirit which is why we have always been a perfect fit.
We had a new batch of completion boxes to create (32 in total), and wanted to come up with some new ideas for the contents reflecting their Bristol-centric vibe. We decided to go with:
- Stoke's Croft China Bristol Mug x 2 - Blue and Pink
- Kate BT Designs Bristol Tea Towel
- ️Padg Made Mango & Mandarin Butter Soap
- ️Ooh! Chocolate 50g Chocolate Bar
- True Start Coffee Barista Coffee Bag
- Brabazon's own Merchandise and branded personalised note
For a one-off cost of £100 plus VAT, we can provide your own company branding on our boxes using a bespoke stamp. This can be used on an unlimited number of boxes. Brabazon opted for this at the very start of their journey with us and it certainly makes the boxes stand out!
We loved working on this project and are continuing the partnership with an exciting giveaway commencing 5th September. Give them a follow on their socials to check it out!
Ocean - New Home Gifts
And finally - a really exciting project for us that we have just started working on. We are now providing Ocean Estate Agents with their completion boxes for new home owners. It's been a huge privilege to start working with such a fantastic brand and one that cares so deeply about all things local.
From the very start, it was really important to focus on the suppliers and finding those that really reflected the core values of the Bristol independent scene. We had plenty to choose from!
We landed on some special ones like Step and Stone - an incredible community-interest bakery who work with young people with learning disabilities, helping to develop their skills and confidence so they can eventually move into employment. True Start - an infectiously positive brand in terms of their coffee and their Certifed B Corp status. And Choco Loco - a fabulously fun trio of women who put their heart and soul (and humour!) into their handmade chocolate.
We provided the first batch of boxes (200 in total) mid-August which will be distributed to those purchasing properties with Ocean over the next coming weeks. And we will continue to work with them on their future boxes!
