This Christmas we have had our cards created by the very talented Jemma Millen who worked with us earlier in the year to create what was to become a multi-award-winning, international advertising campaign that targeted companies, universities, private and state funded research institutions working to help the up to 1 billion people worldwide who suffer from neurological disorders ranging from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson disease, to strokes and multiple sclerosis.
The tactile and very human story behind the campaign was developed to bridge the gap between our US client’s sales team and the knowledge bank of services held within their company and the ever marketing skeptical, scientific community.
The effectiveness and relevancy of the campaign provided our client with an emotive, relevant and tactile solution that opened the door to a sales channel with an estimated value of £26 billion pounds in the UK alone for research into Alzheimer’s and a further £10 billion for Parkinson’s.
These figures increase significantly in the United States with Parkinson’s research is valued at $28 billion and Alzheimer’s care conservatively valued at £200 billion.
However – the real effectiveness in the campaign was the potential to transform the traditional B2B communications model into something much more personal – a campaign that encapsulated the need for research and the hope that a cure will soon be found.
So to cut a very long story short, that is why there are brains and hearts on our Christmas cards this year.
If you work in the science, healthcare or in-house marketing field and would like one of these beautiful cards, please send us your details.

Over the years we have worked with dozens of brands. Some have grown to become multi-billion-pound companies that trade the world over and employ thousands of people and set the standards other aspire to.
What defines these brands far and beyond their business acumen is a culture of bravery. They refuse to play it safe and follow the social norms. They choose to lead as opposed to follow.
But courage should not be mistaken for recklessness. Courage comes from knowing the consequences of your actions and strategically anticipating how you will respond to all possibilities.
When working with a brand that has courage, you get a sense of liberation and that translates through to the work you produce. You find yourself charting new territory and carefully planning the route ahead.
So whilst to your competitors it may look like you are being reckless – the truth of the matter is that you know where you’re going. You’ve scouted the road ahead and are clear on your destination.
Before they know it, your competitors are left staring at your taillights as you pull away and they are left in your dust.
Fear by contrast can and will cripple you. If your brand has a culture rooted in fear, customers, competitors and followers will see it and react accordingly. You will find yourself paralyzed with indecision and that makes you a vulnerable target.
So ask yourself, what sort of brand do you want to be?
