The 12 top BK moments from 2018

2018 was a great year for us full of memories, hard work and lots of achievements. For the 12 days of Christmas, we decided to reflect on our top 12 highlights from 2018. It was hard to choose just 12 but we decided the following were the best…

On the first day of Christmas…

We thought we’d kickstart this (pun intended) with our World Cup celebrations.  It might not have ‘come home’ but it was certainly a fun time to be an England supporter. 

On the second day of Christmas…

We reflect on our Northern Digital Awards nomination. We are extremely proud to have been recognised for our hard work on the Yorkshire Citizenship Test campaign that we created for one of our clients, Plusnet. We look forward to the awards night at the end of January.

On the third day of Christmas…

Of course, we needed something that came in threes… our interns! We had three new signings earlier this year and there was no better way to make them feel welcome than an official BK initiation… a starring role in their very own transfer video.

On the fourth day of Christmas…

If you hadn’t seen already, 2018 has been all about DINOSAURS for us so it’s no surprise that the Trinity T-Rex made our top 12. I wonder what we have planned for 2019 (raised eyebrow emoji).

On the fifth day of Christmas…

We want to share a project that was very close to our hearts- the launch of Leeds Cares. It was a privilege to work on everything for this rebrand from the name, ATL campaign, launch event and website. We can’t wait to see what 2019 holds!

On the sixth day of Christmas…

We’re taking you back to a fashionable 2018 memory where we activated a stylish competition at three different Ladies’ Day events for The Jockey Club. It started off with the biggest calendar event of the season, Aintree…as part of the Grand National.

On the seventh day of Christmas…

On the 7th day of Christmas, we had mud… lots and lots of mud.

We helped out at Tough Mudders all over the country to activate the Kingstone Press Cider sponsorship of the event – some of the team even took part themselves.

The goal for 2019? Get all the BK team to take part… (haha).

On the eighth day of Christmas…

The Leeds Sports Awards is one of our biggest calendar events every year and 2018 was no exception.

The Beast from the East may have forced us to reschedule, but nothing gets in the way of us BKers- the night was a huge success and we look forward to 28th February 2019!

On the ninth day of Christmas… 

We’re reminiscing about a great summer! Yorkshire was the new Spain for a bit & we made the most of the sunny weather!

Outdoor brainstorms, al fresco lunches & ice creams…lots of ice creams! A definite highlight of 2018!

On the tenth day of Christmas…

We give to you, a massive 10th Birthday Party! Our 2018 highlights wouldn’t be complete without looking back on the celebrations for Banana Kick’s 10th Birthday.

Cheers to the next 10!

On the eleventh day of Christmas…

We helped to create a world-class partnership between Leeds Cares and UCI. As an agency with strong links to sport and sporting organisations, we were aware of the Yorkshire 2019 UCI Road World Championships being held in Yorkshire and saw an opportunity for two world class organisations to come together and do some real good.

The partnership was negotiated by The Sports Consultancy. The UCI exclusive rights marketing agency for the UCI Road World Championships, Yorkshire and us on behalf of Leeds Cares.

For the last day of Christmas…

Of course we had to end the year with a bang at our annual Christmas party.

We travelled in style (obviously) starting on the party bus, which dropped us at our Apres-ski venue, YurtBar. Definitely a night to remember, although perhaps a bit blurred for some…

 

2018 was a great year for us and we hope 2019 has plenty more in store for us because of course, we love a good challenge.
