This & That – May Monthly Round Up

In the studio…

May has been a busy month in the We Are Fred studio, with a new starter, the launch of our new website and the visit of the very important Otto the cocker spaniel.

We started off the month with a new member to the growing Fred team. After 7 months of freelancing for us, Sharon officially joined at the beginning of the month. Sharon joins us as our new Creative Artworker, and brings a wealth of knowledge having worked on campaigns for BT, Heineken, Great Ormond Street and The Telegraph. Find out more about Sharon here!

If you have visited the Fred website before, then you may notice there is something different. As we have evolved, so has our brand, our offering, our team and our website. Launched on the 10th May, the new We Are Fred website went live. Featuring an office video, a grid page to showcase unused creative genius, our office outtakes, inspiration and some instagram posts thrown into the mix, and some of our favourite and most successful projects.

Now that the 36 Days of Type is done and dusted. The office has been extremely busy over the last few months, with a lot of projects that we still can’t shout about.

With a pitch win and region for a client coming on-board it’s a very exciting and busy time. To celebrate the hard work and success, Pizza was consumed (not our favourite local as unfortunately they were still closed).

With the Premier League coming to an end, bets were paid up and the West Ham fan (Mike) was very happy to get Europa League football next season!
