…one of those show biz pregnant pauses

followed by the winner is… (insert lengthy awkward pause)… ‘Freestone Creative’, yay!
…Unaccustomed as I am, I’d like to thank my Mother, my auntie Mary… joking aside we’re actually really over the moon here. I think at this stage I must point out that to make sense of this post you might have to read the previous post (and the winner is La La Land). But in a nutshell Freestone Creative were nominated and ‘won’ an industry award for advertising.

the Nominations are…. La La land…

Most people can remember the moment Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty incorrectly named La La Land as the winner of best picture in the Oscars feb 2017, it was a slightly uncomfortable moment to say the least – the audience looked on with absolute disbelief as did the cast and crew of La La Land, the stage fell into disarray Warren Beatty retook the mic and ad-libbed an excuse/explanation … as with all these things people are less likely to remember the rightful winner… (Moonlight)

No room at the Inn

Although this innocent looking label looks like a simple enough print job to the uninitiated, I can report it isn’t. We knew as soon as we set eyes on it – that it would present some interesting challenges – absolutely fine – we thrive on challenges.

Firstly, you will note if you look carefully, the bottle sides are tilted inward; this actually means the design has to be arched like a horse shoe Continue reading


World Premiere Porsche 911 GT2 RS

It’s really something when a client entrusts you with their hyper important World Premiere, even more special when it turns out to be the flagship of their production vehicles – the fastest and most brutal road going 911 ever built (EVER EVER) and I am reliably informed that’s quite a long time!
Well, and there’s no way of being modest about this – cue fanfare  – we’re incredibly proud to announce that’s exactly what happened when Porsche awarded Freestone their latest launch event project (correct at time of publishing), in fact this was the ‘world premiere – more fanfare – of the legendary 911 GT2 RS’ no less.  Continue reading
