Dairy Location Shoot

December 5, 2013

Big thanks to dairy friend @PeteThePhoto today for a lot of hard work on the location shoot….

Pete the photo!

It’s been a busy month here at dairy towers – so we thought we would end it in style (well ish!) by all going down to the noodle pub round the corner for a Thai lunch!

The answerphone wil be on if there are any urgent messages – in the meantime – bring on that Tom yam kung nam khon!




This is where we will be – http://www.alcazarbrewery.co.uk/pageview2.asp?nav=%3Cid=6%3E%3Cb%3ETHE%20FOX%20AND%20CROWN%3C/b%3E&cust=421

10 Years Ago Today…..

November 22, 2013

I remember it like it was yesterday. A bright Autumn Saturday morning, a peaceful lounge with the new wide screen TV tuned in to the Rugby World Cup Final. Australia V England….. could it get any better? The anxiety and fear, knowing that those pesky Aussies always seem to pull it out of the bag when they need to. But we had our our secret weapon – Jonny!

I shall be spending most of this afternoon doing just that!!! Nige

The dairy team is delighted to unveil the new website for our client Blueprint Regeneration. We have worked with Blueprint for four years now and thoroughly enjoy the mix of projects we work on – from No.1 Nottingham Science Park to Green Street in The Meadows and other planned regeneration in this area. Getting the right balance of the commercial developments and the sustainable credentials for this client is always a challenge – but one that we relish.

My last day

May 17, 2013

I’m sad to say that today is my last day of my internship with The Dairy. The past 5 weeks have literally flown by!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the guys and have learnt a great deal from them. I’ve done my fair share of tea making and paper scanning (but I expected that, with an intern job title) but also Nige and Kathryn have really got me involved in the agency. I’ve been busy with helping out at a photo shoot, answering the phone, replying to emails, contributed my thoughts on a clients rebranding project and been managing the social networking site. I’m really grateful for this opportunity they have given me!

This experience has given me a good insight into what the marketing world is all about and I hope I have made a positive contribution to the agency whilst i’ve been here 🙂

Lights with Appetites

May 16, 2013

Take a look at Taxi, a marketing agency based in Toronto, their idea for promoting the ‘The Secret World of Sharks and Rays’ exhibition for the Vancouver Aquarium has caused a few head turns!

They aimed to translate the interesting weird facts about the deep-sea creatures and draw attention to the new exhibition. They brought to life an ordinary streetlight and transformed it into anglerfish, which attracted passers by.

This hasn’t been the first time streetlights in Vancouver have been used for a marketing ploy. A few years ago, McDonalds used a streetlight to effectively send out the message about a free coffee promotion by transforming the streetlight into an oversized coffee pot and cup.

Keep your eyes peeled for any extraordinary streetlights in your city!

The Dairy

New Dairy Client

May 7, 2013

The Dairy is delighted to announce that a new client has come on board in recent weeks – Evolve Retail.

Evolve has been in business for five years and is led by Chris Gibson who founded the hugely successful e-tailer www.kitbag.com before selling the brand some years ago.

Evolve has tasked The Dairy with a brand review and the production of a marketing plan to take them into the next phase of their development.  

Evolve Retail provide ecommerce solutions for companies who operate online. Over the years they have worked with retail brands such as Jones Bootmakers, Jigsaw and I Love Gorgeous as well as business brands like FCC, Biffa and ATS.

Work is already underway on the planning stages of the project with creative input soon to follow. Look out for up-dates posted here in coming weeks…. 


May 1, 2013

I’m Adam I will also be part of the dairy team over the next few weeks! I came to the dairy in early January eager, and hoping for the right placement to gain some great experience. I was very grateful to be accepted on a six week placement. I’m currently a third year student at Nottingham Trent but in my second year on a Business and Psychology Degree. Thankfully I changed course early on from sport to my course now; the other course just wasn’t quite right for me and felt I could achieve more in the exciting world of business!

I’ve loved my three years at Trent and really enjoyed my course. But I realise the importance of experience to go with a degree. Luckily I’ve had quite a bit of work experience, as I’ve worked from the age of 14, but I lacked the experience in the business environment, until I got to the dairy.

I currently work part time for the Lee Westwood Sports centre, which is Trent’s sport facility; I’ve worked there for nearly three years now and have to say that it’s a great place to work and a challenging environment with over 2,000 members. I’ve worked in bars and restaurants over these three years during my summer and Christmas breaks from University. I also worked for The Holiday inn Plymouth from the age of 16 – 18 whilst at college; I was quite glad to see the back of that job!

I’ve had a great few weeks so far at the dairy and gained some valuable experience, I now understand that you can learn more working for a business than sitting in a Lecture theatre. I hope I can have a positive impact on the dairy and contribute to the best of my ability and enjoy these coming weeks as much as I’ve enjoyed the past few.



New Kid in town…

April 23, 2013


Hi I’m Kathryn Walker or Kay if you prefer, and I’m the new kid in town! With our beloved Gary Rush moving onto pastures green it became Nigel’s job to find a find a replacement for him sharpish, and boy was it a whirlwind.

After a quick phone call, possible the longest email selling myself,  then a meeting with me throwing as much hard copies of my work at him, he must have seen/heard something he liked because it was later that night that we agreed that I would join the team.

So now you know how I joined the team here’s a little bit about me and how I got here. I originally come from around this area, however I went to the University of Lincoln to study Advertising and Marketing. I loved the course, I was always a creative child so the thought of combing business and creativity was heaven to me! When I was at uni I always knew that I wanted to be on the agency side, it was my dream to be working with lots of people and different creative avenues.

Straight after uni I stayed in little Lincoln working at The Danwood Group  for nearly 3 years before coming back to my roots here. So here we are in the present, with Nigel essentially making my dream come true!

So that’s how I got here, and here is more about me. I like to play the piano and attempt to play the guitar (when it’s in tune), growing up I played cricket and rode horses but these day’s you’ll find me in the gym.  Then when I’m relaxing I like to read books and watch films whilst doing my nails – such a girl!

So I’d like to say thank you to Nigel, and that I can’t wait to really get stuck in and meet all of our lovely clients and partners to provide more great dairy service….
