vivid rambling man fair website

Hot on the heels of our IOS and Android app for Ramblin' Man Fair comes an all new website.

For the uninitiated, Ramblin' Man Fair is a brilliant two day music festival every summer (and apparel shop all year round). In July, the world's best classic and prog rock, blues and country artists converge on a Maidstone field and make some noise amongst the grub, grog and glamping. Want to find out more? Of course you do. Check out their Vivid new website here.

Vivid launch new website for Abalon

Got an IT project? Maybe your networks needs upgrading or migrating, or perhaps you suddenly have a problem with your systems. Well, Abalon are the people to call. They can help with everything from projects and deployments, parachute in a team of their high experienced IT engineers and technicians to businesses in need and even help companies with recruitment to find them the very best, permanent or temporary professionals in the IT and retail industries. 

A company that offered such a comprehensive and diverse service, needed a suitably dynamic website to show just what they had to offer, that’s why we were delighted when they approached us to revamp their website. 

We had a lot of fun putting this one together and we’re super happy with the end result! The new website lays out Abalon’s three core areas of business, with tonnes of information and case studies for each area. We also integrated a live chat feature and integrated Twitter and other social media to allow clients and new customers to easily contact Abalon with any queries that might have and get a fast response.

Vivid release new brochure for Ascot Racecourse

Hello everyone! We’re ecstatic to announce that we’ve just released our first publication for Ascot Racecourse (yes, that Ascot Racecourse!) The Jumps Season Owner & Trainer Information brochure for 2016/2017. 

The people at Ascot approached us with their needs — a straightforward publication that could be given to both the owners and trainers of runners at their autumn and winter events. It needed to serve as both a newsletter for the venue and a one-stop-shop for information on things such as parking (for cars and helicopters!) veterinary surgeon contact details, all the while still being readable and of a suitably high-standard for such a prestigious venue. 

The 24 page brochure is printed on robust high quality card, perfect for surviving outdoors in the potentially inclement weather of the season, and is filled to the brim with practical information — from track maps and race listings to details about the course’s facilities and dress codes. We also loaded the brochure with gorgeous images of previous seasons at Ascot. 

Vivid create a whole new website for The Yogscast

If you’ve ever been on YouTube (or the internet at all quite frankly) there’s a good chance, you’ll have come across some of The Yogscast’s content! With over 6 billion views on their gaming-related videos, they’re real titans of video-streaming and have created some of YouTube’s most viewed content.

That’s why it’s no overstatement to say were delighted when they asked us to produce an entirely new website for their brand. The new site, which went live this week, contains information and links to all of their various YouTube channels and social media outlets, as well as a blog and a store for their merchandise.  

On top of all these functions for The Yogscast’s core fan base, the website has also been designed to serve as a platform for parties with business interests to make an initial enquiry with The Yogscast Ltd.

We've won an award!

For those of you who haven't already heard, last week we swept up the award for Marketing Campaign of the Year at the Bristol Post Business Awards for our 'Define Tomorrow' Campaign for the lovely people at ComputerWorld. 

See below the obligatory press release to find out more. 


VIVID WIN BRISTOL POST BUSINESS AWARD FOR MARKETING

Bristol based content marketing agency Vivid, has swept up the award for Marketing Campaign of the Year at the 2016 Bristol Post Business Awards.

The winning campaign entitled ‘Define Tomorrow’ was conceived for Vivid’s client ComputerWorld, one of the South West’s largest business IT companies. The multi-faceted campaign involved the design and construction of an entirely new website for the company, along with responsive email, social and video campaigns culminating in a ‘Define Tomorrow’ event which instantly became the largest business technology conference in the South West, and gained recognition from numerous industry-giants including the likes of Microsoft, Dell and VMware.

Founded by three ex-Future plc executives, Vivid was established back in 2015 as a full-service marketing agency designed to offer brands the rich story-based marketing approach which is usually reserved for consumer publishing. Blending the crafts of journalism and publishing with big brand marketing Vivid tells brilliant stories across a multitude of client channels, creating magazines, websites, events and ‘all the things the internet loves’.

We’re absolutely delighted that the Define Tomorrow campaign has received such recognition for both us and ComputerWorld, who are always a pleasure to work with. We hope this demonstrates to brands, large and small, that great marketing is simply great storytelling, and if you want to get your brand’s story out there, you need compelling content. The principle upon which we founded Vivid just 18 months ago.
— Jayne Caple, Managing Director, Vivid
To many, business IT solutions is such a dry and frankly impenetrable subject matter that attracting business leaders to an event on such a subject then without them glazing over is a difficult task. To tackle this issue we created a vibrant new thought leadership sub-brand, website, email campaign, and Bristol-based event to tell ComputerWorld’s story and convey business benefits rather than technology stories.
— Sean Atkins, Content Director, Vivid

You are

Familiar with contacting cold clients and engaging in conversations that will establish how Vivid can help them.

A great project manager with a fanatical eye for detail that will ensure we continue to not just hit, but exceed our marks. Every. Single. Time.

In need of a new adventure.

Although full time preferably, we're genuinely flexible about hours and far more concerned with getting the right person – so talk to us.
