What an extraordinary 2017!

2017 has been one of the craziest and most successful years for Strawberry Too 🙌 .

So, here is a roundup of our best bits 😆👍🏻

Team changes:

Our 2016/17 grads, Will, Beckie, Rachel, Joey, Sophie and Liam, made a huge impact on our year. It was sad to see them fly the nest but we’re happy to hear how well they’ve been doing since finishing their placements here.

Our 2017/18 team is made up of newbies Sasha, Alex and Emma, and Beth who extended her stay from a 3-month design placement to a year. We of course can’t leave out our Creative Director, Jade, our Senior Designer, Jess, and Search Marketing Exec, James, to complete the Too family.

Along the way, our team has met 44 hard working and aspiring Designers and Marketers, who completed one-week work experience placements in our studio. One of them blew our socks off that much he is even joining us as an apprentice designer next year!

Our clients grew:

We feel like proud parents when we see our clients growing! 👪

We were part of Shoot The Bull’s latest venture into the coffee world - RiverHouse Coffee Co. Who knows what’s next for these guys… they’re totally unstoppable! 😉

What started as a website redesign for Boutipi developed into much more. Now regional Wedding Industry Award winners three times running and the organisers behind Bartipi at Flemingate, they truly blossomed this year! We can’t wait to be part of their 2018.

Hymers College were named as one of the top 10 schools in the North of England! After an extremely successful first 6 months working on their Open Morning marketing, we can’t wait to continue working with the Hymers team and students on lots of 2018 projects, including a new website! 🙊

Always super sweet to work with (literally!) White Rabbit Chocolatiers not only doubled in size by expanding their shop into a chocolate cafe too, but won, for the 17th time, a Great Taste Award. We’ve been very lucky to have been part of their successful journey since 2014.

Working with new London swimwear brand, Oliver Jane, has been a dream. We’ve been busy refining their brand, generating social media content, supporting a hefty ecommerce expansion and online advertising to drive sales. Their online visibility has grown astronomically and sales have gone through the roof!

They came to us with a challenge, and we never turn those down! Dunedin House wanted to reach a new audience and increase awareness of their offering. The website was restyled by our fab team and with the help of online advertising, the new online presence has generated an increase in traffic, interest, bookings and awareness - keeping them busy well into 2019!

Even the judges of Dragons Den couldn't resist our Emoji-loving client LoveBomb. From being stocked in Debenhams, to catalogue designs, packaging and new cushion concept presentations - we’ve worked on it all year. LoveBomb have had a 2017 to remember - well done guys!

For the 3rd year running, we are privileged to be heading up the Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival marketing. From strategic content campaigns to social media management it’s been ace to watch this project develop from a concept to an established event with a great reputation. Not to mention interviewing celebrity chefs James Martin and John Torode! Roll on July 2018! 🏕

Trackzy is now live and on fire🔥.Our most recent project developed into a stylish, urban Shopify ecommerce website, that is populating by the day. Supported by both our designers and marketing team, we’re looking forward to seeing Trackzy grow further in the upcoming year!

Though we can’t mention everyone (we’d be here all day!), we’ve absolutely loved taking on new challenges for our lovely clients and working on some new exciting projects that will launch in 2018. 🙊

A city of inspiration:

Based in the heart of a growing city, we have been truly inspired by Hull City of Culture 2017. From innovative art and design projects, to big events and festivals. It’s fair to say, real talent lives in the North!

Any lows?

Well, not winning the 2017 Northern Digital Awards Small Agency of the Year was a bit gutting but don’t worry guys we’ve been nominated again for 2018! 💁 Keep your fingers crossed for us.

We want to say a HUGE thank you for all your support in 2017!
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and we’ll see you in 2018 - raring to go! 😁

Love from The StrawberryToo Team. 😘
