October Launch night

We're kicking our off our launch with a good old-fashioned mixer. We have some exciting collaborations so do be sure to email us on: to register an interest and be one of the first to receive all the juicy stuff!


January is a time for the 'new year, new me' mentality, we want you to get back into the swing of things with a spring in your step. Confidence is an issue that riddles our industry, even more so when you're in the gender minority. We want to address this head on, and get our hands dirty. What better way to kick off 2019 than with a workshop held by the incredible Annie Nicholson aka 'Fandangoekid'.

Creative Equals
Where do all the women in advertising go?
Not just the right thing to do, the only thing

Statistics show that in the UK, only 12% of creative directors are women. This is something we are striving to change and right here in Bristol, we are already challenging this statistic.
