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.

The all new Blueprint web site Sept 13

Another busy week here at dairy towers that included a two day visit to the annual bus conference at The Belton Woods Hotel near Grantham. Our lovely client Nottingham City Transport had organised the event this year and asked us to create an overall design style and the delegate brochure. Much hard work in April culminated in a great event attended by the good and the great of the industry. The dairy had a stand in the exhibition area and attracted lots of interest from companies around the country. Marketing Manager Anthony Carver Smith spoke on the subject of social media which is now nearly a full time job as NCT have 44,000 followers across Facebook and Twitter.   All good fun….

Hello!

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.

House hunters in Nottingham will be delighted to learn that plans are in place to expand the hugely successful Green Street in the Meadows sustainable housing development – the first of its kind in Nottingham.

The dairy have been busy developing a new look website to showcase the completed first phase and give prospective buyers a taste of the good things to come.

Delighted to attend the Nottingham Office Review launch this morning – and even better because the dairy has produced the marketing material!

Thanks to hosts Invest in Nottingham and Co-Star for providing a hearty breakfast. We heard about the state of the office market locally and the predictions for 2013. There seems to be some optimism around from the agents, whilst the city council are pushing hard on the Creative Quarter in the Lace Market… interesting times ahead!

office review!

The Derbyshire Intern

February 20, 2013

Aloha,

My names Andy – I will be interning at the Dairy for a couple of weeks.

I currently study at The University of Derby – BA Hons Degree in Commercial Photography. I’m in my 3rd and final year and everything is starting to come together quite nicely. Besides starting an internship here at the dairy I have recently been nominated for the Student Photographer Of The year 2012 “professional photographer of the year” and I’m actively involved in several ongoing commissions in various areas of photography. The commissions range from still life to fashion based work and in addition to this my personal work is being published in Professional Photographer Magazine in April, so to sum up I am a pretty busy lad right now but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

My previous experiences (work based and otherwise) include working as a freelance photographer and as a photographers assistant,

I’m really looking forward to starting work here, Marketing and Advertising is something that really interests me and I cant wait to gain further insight into the industry from another angle and hopefully develop some mutually beneficial contacts along the way.

Hopefully I can contribute to the company during my time here and really help to make a difference. This experience whilst not only helping me with my studies massively, it is helping me to stand out from the crowd as few student photographers will have experience in this environment.

For years I have known that Advertising is something that I want to be heavily involved with in the future –  Now I get to see and work on real live projects rather than just university module handbooks so its time to crack on!

game time! 😉

Spirits were high at the office of our good friends at Nottingham City Transport. There was no ‘elf loathing or lack of ‘elf esteem to be found here, just plenty of festive cheer as the Christmas Turkey was served.

Take a look at marketing manager Ant, looking very ‘elf satisfied as he puts on his Sunday best ready for the staff party!

This little fellow is far from ‘elf centred though, as he’ll be out and about in Nottingham this weekend handing out presents to lucky members of the public.

Catch him if you can!

Thanks to Confetti Media Group @confetti_ICT who last night hosted the launch of their own Creative and Digital Media Apprenticeship alongside Nottingham City Councils Apprenticeship Hub Launch. It was a well run affair with a lot of the city’s leaders in the room and presentations from Sir John Peace (Experian and Burberry) , Employment and Skills Councillor Nick McDonald, Karen Woodward from the National Apprenticeship Service and Craig Chettle from Confetti. Alison Whitlock – Head of Apprenticeships at Confetti wrapped the evening up. The aim is to get 1,000 young people into an apprenticeship over the next 3 years. I was impressed by the pro-active nature of all concerned – particularly the City Council who have a dedicated team to push the initiative. I chatted at length about the needs we have at the dairy and we may have some news on a new apprentice shortly…. Nige

Hello from Marianne! :)

November 26, 2012

Hi there everyone 🙂
My name is Marianne and I’ve just started two weeks work experience at The Dairy. For the benefit of your imaginations, in case you’re wondering who this new girl is, I will tell you a bit about myself. I’m 19, a girl (I’d hope it’s obvious from my name, but just to be sure!) and I study English at the University of Nottingham. You should hopefully be able to see a picture of me here at the office giving The Dairy a big thumbs up (Y).
Now then, I should probably tell you a bit about what it’s like here at The Dairy and what I will be doing. It wasn’t the best start ever to be honest, bearing in mind I arrived for my first day about twenty minutes late, freaking out that I’d made a horrible first impression and would be in everyone’s bad books before I’d even started.  Even though I’m at uni now and haven’t been in school for nearly two years, I still expect to get in trouble for being late. So I was pleasantly surprised when, after a rather stressed explanation of the road-works and traffic that caused my lateness, Nigel didn’t tell me off. Success!
I’m delighted to say that I have been given my own desk space, which means I now officially feel like a working woman. I think though, since I’m only here for two weeks, I’ll hold off on filling my wardrobe with sharp power suits and briefcases! I have a list of jobs to do while I’m here, and they all seem pretty exciting to be honest. So far today I have been creating a facebook page, which is possibly one of the best things ever to do on work experience. Spend all day on facebook? Yes please!  I’m a little disappointed that the stereotypical work experience job of ‘make tea’ is nowhere to be seen on my list of jobs however, because I’m a girl who loves a nice, warm cup of tea – especially in this horrible weather! I am somewhat reassured though, because I have already enjoyed several cups of tea in the one and a half days that I’ve been here.
Everything is all very new and exciting at this stage, if a little overwhelming. Everybody seems really nice though, and luckily for me there aren’t too many names to remember! I’m hoping that, after my bad start, things go a lot more smoothly from now on. If I get the chance later on I will try to let you know, but for now that’s all from me!
