Brands we love!

We’ve been looking at the brands we love! From sustainable clothing brands to sunglasses and ski goggles, what are the reasons behind why we love and connect with these brands?

The Reputational Risk of Rebranding

Now, let’s be clear. I applaud any high street retailer who’s turning a profit, so well done W H Smiths. Business is booming and they’re announcing not closures but openings. A rare thing in these challenging times for the bricks and mortar end of retailing. Admittedly much of the profit has derived from their dominance in airports and train stations, but it’s still impressive.

Taking time to re-tune

In the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, the idea of downtime can feel like a distant dream. So, when work generously offered a day off to all staff to focus on well-being, I was keen to make the most of it.

Change it up

The most challenging part of my job has and always will be the agency rebrand. You hear the phrase batted around by agencies that ‘we are our own worst client’ and people will ask why?

25th anniversary chat

As part of our special 25th year anniversary edition of Extra, we thought we’d catch up with founding member of Chalk & Ward, managing director, Robert Chalk. We asked him about the journey Chalk & Ward has been on, his biggest accomplishments, his hopes for the future and much, much more.
