2016: A Year in Digital

So… 2016, eh?

It goes without saying, it was a momentous year. Trump, Brexit, more celebrity deaths than probably the past decade combined… but things were very much on the up at Elm House Creative!

Some tips on writing web content

Some tips on writing web content

Years and years ago, in the distant pre-internet days, nobody was writing for the web. Because, well, there was no web.

New Northern Ireland craft beer advertising

I think every creative team has a hit-list of the types of account they would like to work on. Personally, I’ve always wanted to write some ads that needed a long research trip to several Hawaiian beaches. Unfortunately, gigs like that don’t come up every day.

A blast from the past

A blast from the past

Our Brian got a gunk the other day when he started spotting one of his billboard ads popping up all over Belfast. Not that that's unusual in itself - it's what we do after all. But this was a campaign CREATED TEN YEARS AGO!! It turns out it's a 10th Anniversary rerun for the ad that kicked off...
