Oliver’s Travels are kings of the castle with the sandcastle butler

Posted on 11 August, 2015

To showcase its undeniable credentials as a family villa holidays specialist, Oliver’s Travels, with the help of Cow, took things up a notch this summer by offering the world’s first Sandcastle Butler service in selected villas across the world.

Taking inspiration from some of the country’s most impressive sand-sculptors, Oliver’s Travels created a training program for the company’s VIP Concierge service that turned them into world-class Sandcastle Butlers, able to help children turn a simple mound of sand into anything their imagination can dream up.

From finding the correct consistency of the sand, to securing the correct water to sand ratio, Oliver’s Travels Butlers are currently learning how to build the most impressive sculptures on the beach, and will soon be available in villas across Europe.

The Sandcastle Butler service was an instant hit with the press both in the UK and further afield, featuring on the Mail Online, Yahoo Travel, The Sun print, The Sunday Mirror’s Notebook, as well as The Sunday Times travel supplement both online and in print. The Butler service went global when it featured on ABC News, and has since seen success in Germany’s biggest newspaper Bild and Austria’s Woman magazine.

You can read more about, or even chat about booking, the Sandcastle Butlers on the Oliver’s Travels website here: http://www.oliverstravels.com/blog/be-the-ultimate-beach-builder-with-our-sandcastle-butler/

Cow scoops Digi Award for #PussyCatRiot

Posted on 30 July, 2015


We may be known first and foremost as a PR Agency, but we’re firm believers that social integration is an inherent part of any good idea. And as our digital team has expanded, we’ve been quietly beavering away, running social media accounts, building fantastic digital innovation – and leading campaigns through the digital media alongside our more traditional work.

So, we were delighted to emerge triumphant in the Best digital-led campaign category at The CorpComms Digi Awards for our work with Hide My Ass!, and pick up our first entirely Digitally led gong… You’ll know all about #ThePussyCatRiot by now we’re sure, but if not, here’s a brief summary of what we did from the judges – or you can check out our full case study over here.

Hide My Ass! publicised issues of censorship by demonstrating what a censored internet might look like by prohibiting pictures of cats. They also released merchandise in the form of cat-scratching posts, which took the shape of world leaders Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-Un, both known for their control of the Internet. Images of these went viral.”

Le Big Swim

Posted on 20 July, 2015

Over the past few weeks we’ve been having a lot of fun making a big splash for Kronenbourg 1664′s new #LeBigSwim campaign featuring none other than footballing superstar/ acclaimed actor/ part-time philosopher, Eric Cantona.

The French legend announced his surprising aquatic ambition to swim the Channel from France to Britain in an initial short video, which was released by premium lager brand Kronenbourg 1664.

Thankfully the media has also dived straight in to show their support for Eric, with a great pool of lengthly articles to ensure the campaign has began swimmingly – Daily Mirror, Evening Standard, The Independent, The Sun, Mail Online, Huffington Post, Tribal Football and Manchester Evening News

We’ve got a lot more up our wetsuit sleeve for this campaign and people can follow Cantona’s #LeBigSwim, and signal their agreement with him, by heading to Kronenbourg’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/K1664), Twitter profile (@Kronenbourg1664) and YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/Kronenbourg1664).
