Overgate 12 Mums of Christmas

Posted by family on December 3, 2009  |   Comments Off on Overgate 12 Mums of Christmas


Our new multi-media Christmas campaign for Overgate Shopping Centre in Dundee has launched using a heady mixture of TV, 48 and 6 sheet posters, radio, press and social media. The campaign is based on the premise that Overgate understands people’s needs at Christmas, primarily Mums who have to take on many different roles over the festive season.

Kylie Wilson, Marketing Manager of Overgate, said, “Using the many different media channels available allows us to communicate at every level – from the broad reach of TV right down to the more intimate tweets from ‘Overgate Mum’. I’m delighted with family’s fully integrated approach.” It’s been very well received within our industry and, most importantly, by all those busy Mums in Dundee.

CRUK and Healthier Scotland Sunbed Campaign

Posted by family on December 14, 2009  |   Comments Off on CRUK and Healthier Scotland Sunbed Campaign


Did you know that from 1st December it is illegal for operators to allow under 18s to use sunbeds in Scotland? With this in mind, CRUK and Healthier Scotland asked us to devise a new campaign about the perils of sunbed use – something we were more than happy to help with. The creative message centred on how using a sunbed just once a month or more could change someone’s plans dramatically. A tricky young audience to reach (who think “it won’t happen to me”), we used a series of 6 sheet posters in shopping malls across Scotland, as well as a digital version displayed on the big screens in Glasgow and Edinburgh train stations.
