We've fallen in love

Today we have officially launched our collaboration with our sisters at Duchess Media to form our new partnership Another Love Affair.

We first met the Duchess girls last Summer and with an undeniable synchronicity between our two agencies, joining forces seemed the obvious next step. It wasn't just Duchess' lust for life that drew us in but the fact that they worked in the same sectors as us and were on a similar trajectory to us an agency.

Another Love Affair will primarily concentrate on the food, drink, venues, events and music sectors.

What we lack in social strategy, PR, event management and SEO experience Duchess have in abundance. We felt that with Hey What's creative prowess meant that Another Love Affair can deliver a truly comprehensive, unique and end-to-end marketing offering within our sectors.

It's an exciting time for both our agencies having already secured Boomtown's new Bristol-based 2,800 capacity venue Area 404 as a client and there is plenty more to come. And the best thing about it is that we are going to have a lot of fun in the process.

Bristol creatives join forces to form new full-service agency

Two of Bristol’s most creative teams have joined forces to form a brand new company, offering end-to-end marketing services for local businesses in the food, drink, hospitality, festival and events industries.

Another Love Affair is the new collaboration between local agencies Duchess Media and Hey! What?, who have come together to form a brand new creative agency covering every aspect of marketing from brand, design, illustration and website development right through to social media strategy and management, PR and events. With an impressive client base between them, the two agencies have teamed up to offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ for businesses looking for marketing support.

Founded in 2014 by Frankie Wallington and Meg Pope, award-winning Duchess Media have established themselves as experts in social media marketing, PR and events for independent food and drink businesses, working with well-known Bristol groups such as Hyde & Co and Season + Taste to name but a few. Specialising in creative design, illustration, animation and video production, Hey! What? was founded by Hamish McWhirter in 2018, and in a short space of time has amassed clients including Glastonbury Festival, Love Saves The Day, Bristol Beer Factory and Oowee Diner.

Speaking about the collaboration, co-founder Hamish said:

“Having worked for our respective clients for some time we all felt we needed to find another agency to work with to offer the things we didn’t necessarily have in-house. After an initial meeting, and a beer or two, we decided we were all the perfect match, and Another Love Affair was born!

“We’re really excited to be able to expand the range of services we can offer to give our current clients and future clients a totally comprehensive service, all under one roof with bags of expertise between us.”

Another Love Affair offers full-service marketing for businesses in Bristol and beyond, including branding, creative design, illustration, animation, filming and video production, photography, web development, social media, content, PR, events and SEO.
