Today we welcomed Emily Billson into Kipper HQ in Haywards Heath. Emily will be keeping the office on an even keel by organising and booking in advertisers who wish to take space in our local community magazines - published in Hurstpierpoint, Lindfield and Cuckfield, as well as refining some of our internal and external business processes. When you phone in, to say hi!
Did we mention that we held a competition in the office with our landlords Broadcast Bionics - whereby all participants had a list of brands and six plates of pies in front of them. All they had to do was accurately match the pie to the brand. Three was the most matched! All good Christmas fun and marks the beginning of the Christmas music in the office season...
Hurst Life is born!
This month we finally launch our third title - Hurst Life - which we look forward to being welcomed into the amazing community of Hurstpierpoint in West Sussex. We are looking for any local stories happening in the village, but also any businesses that are looking to promote and advertise their products and services to Hurstpierpoint and beyond. With our excellent blend of ultra local content alongside your adverts, we have created magazines which will genuinely stay around on residents coffee tables for the whole month.
As we seek to make the improve our response times to new advertiser enquiries and also contributors wanting to discuss articles in the Cuckfield Life and Lindfield Life magazines, we have just employed Matthew Buss as office assistant.
If you call the office, you'll probably be speaking to him!
The Gatwick Diamond Business Association (GDB) will soon be sending out their latest Update magazine - a bi-monthly publication that keeps members up to date with the association, but also with changes and news from within the membership.
At Kipper we created the new look Update magazine and worked closely with Jeremy Taylor in handling the copy for it between us, and getting the look and feel right.
In particular he was keen to ensure there was still a little something quirky about GDBs magazine, so the company mascot (called Munki, pictured) makes a couple of appearances following his photoshoot session at GDB HQ at Basepoint in Crawley last week!
