However work wise many of us will now be starting to turn our attention to towards planning our winter campaigns in the run in to Christmas.

SO we thought this would be an apt time to remind you that during the past 12 months we have been helping a mix of charities, multinational brands and tech start-ups deliver high quality social media and broader digital campaigns.

Below are some of our favourite projects we have worked on in the past year. 

Fighting Animal Testing

Over the past year we have helped Lush Cosmetics, deliver social media activities and blogger PR for a number of campaigns including ‘Break The Bag Habit’ and ‘No Cop Out on Wildlife Crime.

We’re also very proud to have provided social media and blogger support for Lush throughout their Fighting Animal Testing Campaign.  The campaign played a vital role in highlighting the plight of animals tested on for cosmetics as hundreds of thousands of people around Europe called for an end to animal testing in Europe. Finally on the 11th March 2013, after 10 years of delays the EU passed the European Cosmetics Directive, which finally banned the sale of animal tested products in Europe. 

Moves app

Since January, we have been providing social media services for one of the leading activity tracker apps ‘Moves’. The app is simply beautiful and enables you to track steps walked, distanced cycled and calories. And best of all it is free to download. Currently it is only available on Iphone but you can sign up for the android release due to be released soon.

Volunteer Champions Campaign

Recently we worked with the charity CSV to create their campaign ‘Volunteer Champions’, which celebrated their 50th anniversary and the great work volunteers do throughout our communities every day. Combining images from the past with heartwarming current day stories the campaign reached in excess of half a million people.

We’re excited to be able to tell you about a client we have been working with since the start of February, Moves app.

Moves is an app that originated in beautiful Finland and has been developed by ProtoGeo, whose CEO is Sampo Karjalainen, a start-up entrepreneur with years of experience in digital design and the creation of virtual worlds.

Moves enables people to monitor their daily movements, whether by foot, bike or public transport. Unlike other fitness apps, Moves doesn’t require you to press a button to turn it on, it simply runs in the background and is quietly brilliant.

Moves has been a roaring success so far receiving great write-ups in the tech press and they have already had over 1 million people download the app.

Our work has been focused on working closely with the in-house team to develop a social media identity for Moves. We’re responsible for curating interesting content for Moves users and providing a friendly informative social media voice for Moves users to interact with, whether on fitness issues or app related enquiries.

We love working with these guys partly because it’s a fantastic product but also because they are humble, modest and innovative.

What else is there to say but come and give Moves a try, we’re sure you will love Moves as much as we do- http://www.moves-app.com
