Get Ready with Freddie Cousin Brown at Pandora HQ

freddy cousin brown bloggers freddy my love

I was so excited recently to visit Pandora HQ in Oxford Street for a Get Ready with Me event with blogger Freddie Cousin Brown. My daughter is a huge Freddie My Love fan and as soon as she heard about the event she begged me to get tickets as an early birthday present and well, I couldn’t refuse.

So on a Saturday evening in May we headed off to the flagship Pandora store on Oxford Street, and on arrival were greeted by a short queue of attendees all faithfully wearing shades of pale pink (Freddie’s favourite colour).

We were greeted by the lovely Pandora staff (all also wearing pink) and were given a gift box with a preloaded Pandora gift card in a gorgeous ribbon tied gift box, to exchange in the store (squeee!).

We headed upstairs where the hospitality from the Pandora team couldn’t have been more amazing, they had laid on lots of lovely touches – a cocktail bar, sweetie buffet, manicures, hair styling.

Freddie did a meet and greet. I have to say she is so lovely and super stunning in real life and I found myself coming over all fan girl too, much to my daughters dismay!

Later, Freddy did a really interesting and useful Q&A, outlining her top tips for getting ready in the morning, her favourite make up brands and how to stay stunning looking all day.

Freddy’s family – Mum, Dad & sister Coco were also at the event and it was lovely to meet them and chat about Freddy’s amazing success and rise to fame over the last couple of years.

After a few hours of pampering, indulging and chatting, we headed down to the store where we exchanged our gift cards for more Pandora goodies. I couldn’t immediately see anything I wanted to buy. As a baker, I tend not to wear too much jewellery, but my daughter was more than happy to make use of my gift card.

Back at the Nila Holden bakery, I was inspired to make some pretty logo biscuits with the gorgeous Pandora branding – including of course some pretty pink themed biscuits!

My daughter asked me to make some biscuits for Freddy and her younger sister Coco which we gave to them at the event. Some pink (of course!) loveheart biscuits for Freddy and unicorn and rainbow biscuits for Coco.

All in all, we had an amazing time at the event – huge thanks to Freddy and the Pandora team..!

Biscuits for SEAT Cars Track Back Campaign

SEAT branded biscuits nila holden

We loved making biscuits for SEAT cars  recently.  The Sales Development Team at SEAT contacted us to see if we could help with biscuits for an upcoming campaign they were launching with their dealerships.

The team were launching Track Back a campaign focusing on ensuring efficient Lead Generation and Management and improving response times within their dealerships, and were looking to for us to make logo biscuits and to ship them to 120 of their dealerships across the country.

It was clear from the outset that some logo / branded biscuits featuring the SEAT & Track Back logo’s would work well. But the sales development team wanted to come up with something a bit more exciting and memorable to tie in with the key messages from the campaign.

We did some work to look at what kinds of phrases and text from the campaign would fit well on the biscuit size & shape we had in mind. In the end we decided on a set of 10 biscuits in a gift box for each dealership, a mix of square and round biscuits with logos and some with words stamped in them. All presented in a lovely gift box.

And then some with the Track Back branding for staff back at the SEAT HQ.  The SEAT / Track Back branding was a dream to work with and the final biscuits looked great – I hope you’ll agree!

After baking and decorating the biscuits, we had a busy morning in the bakery packing up all 120 parcels, each with a gift box and including a letter from the SEAT team explaining to the dealerships that the Track Back Campaign had launched and what was enclosed in the packet.

We had some great feedback from the team at SEAT  “Hello Nila, I just want to say a massive thank you for the beautiful biscuits. We are over the moon with them and they have gone down a treat…!”

We have since signed up to be a preferred supplier to the Seat / Volkswagen group and look forward to making many more biscuits for projects and campaigns across the Audi, Skoda, VW & Seat brands.

Bus biscuits for Here East’s new shuttle bus.

here east bus biscuits nila holden2

We were really excited to make some logo biscuits for Here East recently.  Here East covers 1.2 million square feet in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and brings together business, tech, media, education and data in the pursuit of innovation, surrounded by parks, canals, housing & leisure facilities.

Here East is home to established names and nimble startups alike. “Radicals, reformers, visionaries, industry heroes and like-minded locals – they’re all part of our East London heritage and its geography of innovation…”

We were commissioned by creative design agency We Design who in turn is working directly with Here East, to make some biscuits to launch a new shuttle bus route.

There was some stunning branded artwork for the campaign which gave us a lot of beautiful content to work with. 

Screen Shot 2017-05-06 at 22.58.47

In discussions with Naomi, project manager from We Design, we discussed the xxxxx and came up with a simple but sleek design for the biscuit artwork. We felt a rectangular shaped biscuit would work well and would be lightly reminiscent of a bus shape.

We made up biscuits with 3 slightly different designs – always something to consider when thinking about branded biscuits. You’ll be keen to get maximum exposure & sharing on social media, and having posts, retweets etc with a few different images being shared is always really good and definitely something to aim for.

Here are the biscuits all wrapped up and ready to dispatch. Don’t they look great?

We’ve had some really great feedback from Naomi at We Design:

“Hi Nila, I just wanted to say a really big thank you for the bus biscuits, the client was really happy with them and has messaged me this morning to let me know they are going down a storm on the Here East site…!  Thanks again, it has been great working with you on this project!

Logo biscuits for Flymo & McCulloch UK

nila_holden_branded_biscuits_flymo

Just dropping by to show you some corporate biscuits we made recently for our client the integrated PR, Digital and creative communications agency OPR for their clients Flymo and McCulloch, brands owned by Swedish company Husqvarna

OPR were looking to source some biscuits as freebie giveaways for an industry event. Both McCulloch and Flymo logos and brands have great market awareness and the Flymo logo in particular is very easily recognisable. 

Seeing the Flymo branding took me right back to my teenage years and endless hours mowing my parents lawns (front and back!) with our hover mower. I’d always load up some tunes onto my cassette walkman – Aha and Duran Duran were real favourites for mowing duties and walk up and down the garden with the Flymo hovering and gliding across the grass. 

In discussions with OPR, we decided that the most cost effective design would be go with a neutral icing topped with the printed logos. When you have such iconic, instantly recognisable logos this approach is often the most impactful and gives a clean unfussy finish to the biscuits.

The biscuits went down a treat and we had some great feedback from our client OPR:

“The biscuits did indeed arrive in good time, all the biscuits were in good order and they tasted delicious! The event was a great success and the client was really pleased. We’ll be sure to keep in touch and bear you in mind should we need any biscuits again….”

Corporate logo biscuits for Epson UK

We were super excited to make corporate logo biscuits for our client ReallyB2B recently for their client Epson UK. Epson UK have been undertaking a series of events and roadshows and was seeking some awesome branded goodies to give away to visitors.

The brief was for us to produce some sleek, sporty & colourful car biscuits based on the Epson corporate branding. We came up with these blue sports car biscuits complete with the Epson logo.

The biscuits went down a real treat with Epson, who pretty swiftly reordered another batch! Earlier this month we made a third batch of biscuits. The brief this time was to make some car biscuits but with some tweak to the design as the team at Epson have been working on a new marketing project.

This time we made up the biscuits in white icing, and added blue detail and the Epson logo as before. Each biscuit was individually wrapped to make it super easier to hand out or include in goodie bags.

We had some fantastic feedback from our client ReallyB2B “Hi Nila, we’ve just received the cookies and they look amazing!  Thank you SO much!! You are number 1 on our list if we ever need anything similar in the future…”

Biscuits for your Superheros…!

Here at Nila Holden Bakery we get to work on some pretty fab biscuit commissions. We were super excited recently to work on an super hero themed corporate biscuit project!

The lovely team at Pai Skincare dropped us a line to see if we could help with some logo biscuits for their end of year staff party – but with a bit of a twist!

Pai Skincare are experts in skincare for sensitive skins and have recently launched a Head to Toe Hero balm.

The Pai staff team had worked really hard to bring the Hero Balm to market and management wanted to “thank all of our staff for their blood, sweat and tears in getting it launched by having a mini party. We’d like to have Wonderwoman and Superman biscuits personalised with each staff member’s name.”

As always, we jumped at the chance to make biscuits for such worthy cause. The brief was to create brightly coloured biscuits in yellow & blue, palm sized so quite a considerable size. With Wonderwoman insignia for the female staff and Superman insignia for the male staff.  Each biscuit was also then personalised with staff member’s initials for that extra special touch. Here’s what we came up with.  Don’t they look great? So bright & cheerful and we loved the idea of adding team members initials.

After the staff party, the team at Pai shared some great images on social media.

“When you’re a rapidly growing company it’s easy to forget to stop and take stock of the achievements along the way. We’ve been celebrating the huge effort of our wonder women (and men!) and success of our newly launched Head to Toe Hero Buriti Balm..with a bit of help from @nilaholden‘s cute personalised biscuits.” said Pai on social media.

And we had some great feedback from the team at Pai Cosmetics. “Thanks again and I will be in touch if I need anymore custom cookies – they were truly amazing!” Trade Marketing Manager, Pai Cosmetics.
