Vivid welcomes Autumn with National Trust South West

Autumn, a time of floating leaves, cosy evenings, new pencil cases, bonfires, brisk walks... how about we shut up and allow the words of Keats together with the splendour of the South West's best locations paint a picture of Autumn instead? Our latest video for National Trust South West has just gone live...

We're a top five agency on Instagram!

Vivid Content Marketing iIstagram

Okay, there are a few caveats to the grand claim of the title, but this is a lovely story for Vivid nonetheless.

Marketing blogger and Managing Director of Studio Cotton, Aime Cox Tennant, has a bee in her bonnet. Her gripe? Well, to quote her directly, "marketing agencies are guff at marketing". In particular, Bristol and Bath based agencies are really bad at Instagram. Her latest post, 15 Bristol marketing, design, content and UX agencies that are bad at Instagram - and 5 who blow me away is well worth a read and absolutely nails the cliches of almost every agency Instagram feed – birthday cakes, flowers, awards, a conference speaker, dogs, so, many, dogs, etc.

Aime's lovely review of Vivid's Instagram feed. You can read the full article  here.

The good news for Vivid is that it's not all doom and gloom. Aime has listed TheVividTeam as one of five Bristol and Bath agencies that are absolutely 'smashing Instagram' and outlined the lessons every brand could learn from the five of us. And no, we've never met Aime. She simply found us, liked us, followed us and reviewed us.

Thanks Aime, and yes, we do have a rock solid Instagram strategy that explains our quirky celebrity choices, but figuring it out is half the fun!

Take a peek at the website we created for Lisa Comfort


When it comes to making things look good, the delightful Lisa Comfort certainly knows a thing or two, which is why we hope she’ll be rather pleased with the website we’ve just created for her. 

The blogger and founder of the hugely popular ‘Sew Over It’ brand isn’t just an oracle of knowledge when it comes to sewing and sartorial matters. It turns out she’s a bit of a genius when it comes to craft and DIY things too. 

With so many ideas to share Lisa needed a new dedicated website, separate from Sew Over It. to house them all, and we were more than happy to oblige. The resulting site, built from the ground up in WordPress, includes distinct sub-sections to house all of her brilliant how-tos, travel guides and vlogs. 

On the site you will find a nearly inexhaustible stream of inspiration for wholesome actives you could complete on a rainy Sunday, to make you feel better about having spent the whole morning hungover in bed, we particularly like her guide to sprucing up the stairs with wallpaper.  

Check out Lisa’s site here and let us know what you think. 

Vivid launches App for Ramblin' Man Fair 2017!

Our latest brilliant client, Ramblin' Man Fair, put on a killer two day music festival every summer. In July, the world's best classic and prog rock, blues and country artists converge on a Maidstone field and make some noise. It's all tied together with an incredible selection of grub, grog and glamping — think craft ales, low’n’slow barbecued meats and ostrich burgers, craft beers, rare whiskey... you know the drill. The result is the perfect family-friendly weekend getaway for everyone out there who used to own a pair of leather trousers or denim vest.

And we should know. We were there a few months ago pitching an IOS and Android app that would help the 'ramblers' really get the most out of the festival – not your typical pitch setting, but better than most. And today we launch the fruits of our labour!

The official Ramblin' Man Fair 2017 app features exclusive news about the event, an in-app store to buy tickets and merch, integrated YouTube playlists, maps of the venue, schedule and lineup information, plus loads more. Making it a one stop shop for everything you need to know about Ramblin’ Man Fair 2017.
