We’ve been getting into the spirit of St Andrew’s Day this week with Heathrow, to launch Made in Scotland – a week long celebration of all things, well…Scottish!

We teamed up with Glasgow based tartan designer Jilli Blackwood, the talent behind the Commonwealth Games 2014 opening ceremony outfits, to create a bespoke Heathrow tartan that has been used to tag all of the items across the airport which have been created or influenced by great Scottish pioneers. We gave everything – from the phones invented by Alexander Graham Bell, ATM’s the brainchild of Scot John Shepherd-Barron and TV’s invented by John Logie Baird – a Scottish makeover. We even renamed the Heathrow runway ‘The McAdam Runway’ in honour of the creator of tarmac, John McAdam.

Last but not least we got together with Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food in Terminal 5 to create a bespoke Made in Scotland menu, incorporating an edible version of the tartan.

The story’s been a big hit with Heathrow hitting Scottish headlines, generating over 50 pieces of coverage in the likes of The Herald, The Scotsman, The Daily Record, Scottish Sun and many more.

Posted on 5 November, 2015

Always one to know a good thing when they see one, we’re very honoured that PRWeek have invited Cow to speak at their upcoming seminar on ‘devising and executing fantastic campaigns’ after our recent win at The PRWeek awards. Chatting about our work with Hide My Ass on the award winning viral campaign #ThePussycatRiot, we’ll be exploring the insight behind the initiative, just how it worked so well – and why Nala the Cat is an excellent ambassador for a Virtual Private Network!

The PRWeek Best Campaigns of 2015 seminar takes place on the morning of Thursday 26 November at One Wimpole Street in London’s West End, and Jack (Head of Social) and Matt (Creative Director) of Cow will be speaking at around 9.30am. PRWeek say the day “promises valuable insights into putting together successful, modern PR campaigns – and will be a combination of individual presentations and panel sessions during the event, with Q&A opportunities for the audience”.

Tickets are  £85 + VAT per person, and questions as to whether our wit and candour are worth that much should be instantly dismissed. Get them here


Cow pick up coveted PR Week gong with Hide My Ass!

Posted on 21 October, 2015

Well what a night! A good number of the Cows were out in force last night at the PR Week Awards, nominated for three gongs – and picking up one coveted award in the process for our work with Hide My Ass and #ThePussyCatRiot.

Described by James Myers from TVC Group as “a brilliant campaign” – he went on to explain, “Every element was well thought out. Perfect delivery”. In summary, it won because it achieved hundreds of items of coverage in 25 countries and generated substantial sales for the client – as well as containing some cracking moggy memes of course!

Applause also rang out for the Return of the Green Cross Man for MORE TH>N Insurance in the category of Financial Services, and the Technology category for Three’s Learn Spanish with Vinnie Jones – which were both proud finalists but just missed out this time.
