Stories That Hit The Headlines

Quite Great Stories That Hit The Headlines

At Quite Great we pride ourselves on the creative side of what we do , helping to think through ‘angles’ outlined by our clients, whether they be brands or bands and then turn them into media coverage that get people talking in the pubs and bars and across the coffee tables and blogs of the UK . Over the years we have driven tanks down Regent Street, turned the voice of classical singers into chocolate, and generally done all we can to build appropriate and also often , fun, promotional opportunities that grab attention and build momentum.

What follows is a random selection – random because we have so many it is hard to decide which ones to use – of thought provoking ideas that cover music and brands , naturally due to the nature of the music industry and the fast flowing sales patterns they lean towards music and entertainment but the brand side of our marketing and promotional team are adept at bringing focused creative ideas into the national and local arena working with everyone from racing drivers who gain column inches and broadcast time by getting their car sponsored by the cartoon classic , Dangermouse, to surveys for book launches for the likes of MacMillan, Virgin and many more that highlight changes in the way the public view certain trends within fashion or interiors or how to promote tourist destinations by researching an array of information in order to get headline stats or headline voxpops ideal for the 24 hour news media.

 

 

Have a look at some of our creative thinking and we do hope our unique way of approaching a strategic campaign can help your brand or your music and entertainment venture to grow.
