Dogs of Deal

It’s the book they said would never be published (or was that should?)! Either which way, it’s here and it’s a glorious celebration of a tiny proportion of the many excellent dogs in the remote seaside town of Deal. And a percentage of any profits will go to local charity Futures for Dogs.

More of what we do


Copy by Claire favicon




















We’ve recently launched another new website, brand logo and look – this time for business copywriting service Copy by Claire. A brainstorming session at CP towers sent us down a Scrabble tile path cul de sac but we eventually settled on a good old-fashioned typewriter to convey the message (the words are what’s important). Fortunately, a 1950’s Royal happened to be on hand.. a bit of jiggery pokery later and the site was built. It’s getting a very positive response and we’re particular pleased with Claire’s business cards which, thanks to Instantprint who did not only a speedy but a rather sumptuous job.

Behold! Another new website

Mileage opening day

We’ve had great fun working with the lovely ladies at Deal’s most interesting shop – Mileage Vintage Home & Tea Station. They wanted a simple website and social media campaign and, in the space of  three weeks we’ve  built up a strong following and reached over 12,500 people on Facebook. But enough of that, have you seen their stuff?

We’re delighted to be working with stylish scent creators, Birch & Brook, whose distinctive candles are stocked in some very special places in the UK (McCully & Crane in Rye, The Cross in Holland Park, KJ’s Laundry on Marylebone Lane among others). They are pioneers in creating truly English aromas – crafted in England from natural ingredients. Now they’ve been selected for inclusion in the curated collection of aroma aficionados The Nose in Paris – no small feat.
