What a joyous and ten-out-of-ten experience it has been to work with Ollie, owner of Holwell Farmhouse. As client relationships go, this has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding ones we’ve had over the years and not too sound too cheesy, it’s absolute magic when this happens. Ollie dropped us an email saying he liked our website (flattery gets you everywhere) and asked whether we could schedule a call to discuss his new venture. Being hungry to hear more (and of course so we could ask him specifically what he loved so much about our work!) we booked an appointment to visit him at the farmhouse he was starting to renovate. Sparks were flying, professional chemistry was off the hook – you get the picture! The venue was stunning and Ollie had a great story to tell and vision for the venue. All of these things added up to the team really wanting to work with Ollie so we could be part of his story and help him get his business off the ground. What ensued was a detailed branding exercise and curating top line strategic recommendations for the venue's launch. Ollie loved them all (obviously!) and what we think we have helped Ollie create is a brand identity that instantly evokes the natural and gorgeous countryside setting of his stunning farmhouse. The website, which is purposefully image-led, helps celebrate the abundance of wildlife and nature on his doorstep and the logo, teamed with ‘Explore, Escape, Unwind’ helps communicate the style of staycation on offer.
After purchasing Holwell Farmhouse in August ’19, I searched high and low for a business or person that I could work with to help bring my brand to life. I came across Attention Marketing shortly before renovations began and had a site visit from the owner, Sarah Jepson. From the moment I first spoke with Sarah, her enthusiasm for the job was obvious. The daunting task of starting a brand was immediately turned into excitement. Sarah is encouraging, fearless and dynamic. She gives me confidence and is extremely consistent with different ideas of how to gain exposure. I can’t wait to up the volume with our PR with Sarah’s capable team and I wouldn’t want to work with anybody but Attention Marketing!
