Keep calm…and go digital

Keep calm…and go digital

It’s hard to avoid. The information age that we now find ourselves in means that ‘digital’ is following us everywhere. From banking to social interaction, everything is going digital – including advertising! So it’s no wonder that Adweek has reported that CMOs are expecting 75% of their marketing budgets to be allocated to digital media […]

My first week at SBW

Fy wythnos gyntaf yn SBW

I have just finished my first week at SBW Advertising, and it was great. I joined on a Santander Internship set up by Swansea University. I’ve always seen Adland in quite a strange way; it’s like a limo driving past you on the street. You can’t see inside, they can see outside and you imagine […]

Rwyf newydd orffen fy wythnos gyntaf yn SBW Advertising, ac rydw i wrth fy modd. Ymunais trwy gynllun Interniaeth Santander a drefnwyd gan Brifysgol Abertawe. Roeddwn i wedi gweld y byd hysbysebu fel rhywbeth rhyfedd erioed; mae fel limwsîn yn gyrru heibio i chi ar y stryd. Allwch chi ddim gweld i mewn iddo, maen nhw’n gallu gweld allan ac rydych chi’n dychmygu ei bod hi’n eithaf braf y tu mewn. Rwy’n falch fy mod i ar y tu mewn erbyn hyn! Roedd fy nghydweithwyr newydd, yng Nghaerdydd ac ym …

Welcome to Wales!

Croeso i Gymru

SBW has opened a new office in the Welsh capital. I am very excited to be a part of this adventure; being a Welshy myself, it’s great to be working back in the homeland and not commuting to Bristol every day! Our new Cardiff office has been open for little over a month, and I’m pleased to say that we are finally settled in. This adventure hasn’t been without its challenges; we have experienced dreaded IT problems, furniture deliveries going wrong (resulting in our cabinet smashing on the f

Mae SBW wedi agor swyddfa newydd ym mhrifddinas Cymru. Rwyf wrth fy modd o fod yn rhan o’r antur hwn; a minnau’n Gymraes fy hun, mae’n fendigedig cael gweithio yn ôl yn fy mamwlad a pheidio â gorfod teithio i Fryste pob dydd! Mae ein swyddfa newydd yng Nghaerdydd ar agor ers ychydig dros fis, ac rwy’n hapus iawn i adrodd ein bod ni wedi ymgartrefu o’r diwedd. Ni fu’r antur hwn heb ambell i her; rydym wedi dioddef problemau TG bondigrybwyll, cludo dodrefn yn mynd o chwith (gan arwain …

Its summer blockbuster time

Mae’n amser ffilmiau mawr yr haf

Going to the movies has played a major role all my life. From my early teens taking a girl to the movies so we didn’t actually have to talk, to these days, taking my seat on a Sunday to help cure my hangover from a weekend of debauchery.

Mae mynd i’r sinema wedi bod yn rhan bwysig o fy mywyd erioed. O fy arddegau cynnar pan fyddwn i’n mynd â merch i’r sinema fel nad oeddem yn gorfod siarad gyda’n gilydd mewn gwirionedd, hyd at heddiw, pan fyddaf yn suddo i’m sedd ar ddydd Sul i helpu gwella fy mhen tost ar ôl penwythnos gwyllt. Mae ffilmiau, yn dra thebyg i’m bywyd innau, wedi newid yn ystod y blynyddoedd diwethaf. Mae technoleg wedi caniatáu arloesi mawr o ran effeithiau arbennig ac mae unrhyw fframwaith moesol o ran sgwennwyr …

The Bank Holiday Bonanza at Morgan Quarter

Bonanza Gŵyl y Banc yn Ardal Morgan

Another Bank Holiday? That makes 5 this year! And we’re not even into the second half of 2014. Of course, I’m not complaining. The Spring Bank Holiday has been keeping us busy here at SBW as we have been working with Morgan Quarter in Cardiff to organise a Bank Holiday Bonanza in their iconic arcades.

Gŵyl Banc arall? Dyna 5 eleni! A dydyn ni ddim wedi cyrraedd ail hanner 2014 eto. Wrth gwrs, dydw i ddim yn cwyno. Cadwodd Gŵyl Banc y Gwanwyn ni’n brysur ynSBW oherwydd y buom yn gweithio gydag Ardal Morgan yng Nghaerdydd i drefnu Bonanza Gŵyl y Banc yn ei arcedau eiconig. Penderfynwyd ar thema ffair bentref ac aethom ati’n syth i gael gafael ar beiriannau popgorn a chandi-fflos traddodiadol, adloniant a llathenni o rubanau, achos beth fyddai ffair bentref heb rubanau i addurno’r stryd! Gwahoddwyd yr Heart Angels i ddarparu …

On my first day, I was greeted by the friendly, positive team who are welcoming to whomever who walks through their office door, which made a typical day working here that much more enjoyable.

SBW Business Showcase 2014

SBW Business Showcase 2014

Yesterday, SBW attended Business Showcase 2014 at Colston Hall, just across the road from our Bristol home in Colston Tower. This was a fantastic event for us as a company, not only because of the plentiful networking opportunities, but also because it presented the perfect occasion for the re-launch of our brand! As I’m sure […]

Does Jägermeister’s new spot taste like Guinness?

Does Jägermeister’s new spot taste like Guinness?

I’d love to hear my fellow advertising brothers’ and sisters’ views on Jägermeister’s latest foray onto the big screen in the UK. They are not the first alcohol brand I’ve witnessed attempting to utilize a creative televised spot to broaden their brand’s reach beyond their core (Jagerbomb) crowd – the results of which can often […]

Samsung’s Selfie Joy

Samsung’s Selfie Joy

Samsung may not be in the photo but I bet its marketing department is smiling after Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres took what has been called the most epic selfie of all time using her Galaxy.
