Creative Corner: South West media round-up
A round-up of news from across the South West's creative and digital industries. This week: Honey, and Andrews
A new social creative agency based in Gloucestershire has officially opened its doors.
Chaired by Next Fifteen co-founder Mark Adams, Honey is brainchild of the founders of PR agencies Rabbit, Renegade and TCG.
It was formed in response to demand from marketers looking to consolidate their agency or vendor roster and integrate cross-over disciplines such as PR, social and performance marketing.
Honey's initial focus is on the lifestyle, retail, sports, travel and media sectors.
Chairman Mark Adams said: "We've all worked together closely for some time and decided we could do better as a single entity working formally under one brand.
"Social is more than just buzz and there's a massive global opportunity for next-generation super brands to succeed by placing social at the heart of their marketing."
Honey's founding partners are Mark Adams, Chris Adams, Dirk Singer and Mark Terry-Lush.
Keynsham-headquartered property group Andrews is celebrating its 21st anniversary by supporting the North Bristol Arts Trail.
The group will open the doors to its Bishopston branch next weekend (29-30 November 2014) to provide space to two local artists for the North Bristol Arts Trail.
Marion Kardasz and Paul Davis will showcase their work to the local community between 10am and 6pm each day.
Branch manager Deborah Savage said: "The whole team at Andrews is delighted to be celebrating our 21st anniversary here in Bishopston, and our success over the last two decades is in no small part to the support of the local community.
"It is therefore fitting that we give something back to them and open our doors as part of this phenomenally popular art event. Marion and Paul each bring a different style of art which we hope will appeal to a wide range of visitors."
