Art & Flo love developing strong relationships with our clients across business, not for profit and the arts. We are innovative, flexible and able to work collaboratively wherever you need help with PR, social media, communications, strategy and ideas. Here’s what some happy customers say:
"Vicky has worked closely with us to plan, launch and manage a new social media strategy for Christian Connection. Vicky helped us to establish our own voice in a crowded marketplace, but more importantly, how we could better serve, empower and encourage our members. We are really happy with the results and since launching the new strategy, we're proud to have won an industry award for Best Use of Social Media. Thank you! She had worked with us on previous projects, listened carefully to our requirements and exceeded expectations. The research she presented on our competitors, customers and the industry was impressive. From her findings she presented a revealing competitor analysis, and then precisely identified areas of improvement. I would recommend her highly."
"Vicky worked with Greenbelt over a four-year period, becoming a natural and valued part of the extended team, understanding the organisation from the inside, but able to always help us think better about how we were perceived and interpreted outside. Her work was diligent and unflustered. She worked with us through a very testing time, when good PR and Media relations were vital for the survival of the festival. But she didn’t just help to ensure our survival, she was part of a re-flourishing. She helped us turn our public-facing story from one of chaos and crisis into a festival increasingly confident of itself and with great, important and transformative stories to tell.
Vicky acted expertly and in good faith in the festival's interests throughout and went well beyond her remit in the heat of the event to ensure that Greenbelt, as her client, was supported to the max. As a result of Vicky's work, we achieved a much better press coverage – online, broadcast and print – than we have done for many years (the BBC pick-up was especially welcome) and we know that we would not have achieved this without working with her."
Paul Northup, Creative Director,
"Wave needed short-term communications support to build engagement with an ambitious 10 year anniversary event. Vicky came to the rescue with her professional and insightful approach - providing a clear and impactful plan for our social media in the run up to and during the event. I particularly appreciated Vicky’s media training and calming presence for TV and radio interviews that showcased our wider work - the media opportunities that she opened up for us continue to have a positive impact for Wave, significantly boosting our profile and reach."
Bernice Hardie, co-founder Wave (We’re All Valued Equally),
"A gifted, insightful and exemplary practitioner in arts PR, Vicky surpassed my best expectations. Her intuitive grasp of the essence of the projects – spanning arts, faith and politics – was vital in streamlining and focusing the stories presented on site, online and in media. She was also shrewd and incisive in anticipating and handling problems, and worked creatively and collaboratively with my whole production team, establishing friendly and trusting working relationships very quickly. She took on challenging briefs at short notice, and managed her portfolio with unswerving dedication and effectiveness, going the extra mile and then some. I was also grateful for her highly constructive attitude, taking stress and work away from me, and when problems arose, always presenting solutions. I’m extremely grateful to Vicky and recommend her unreservedly."
Justin Butcher, Creative Director & Event Producer
"As a new charity it’s been great to have Vicky working alongside us to develop our media engagement. Three things have particularly impressed. Firstly, from the beginning she just ‘got us’ and therefore we had great confidence in her representing us. Secondly, because of her extensive network with the right people and her knowledge of how things work she managed to get some quick results for us while building strong foundations for the future. Thirdly, she had provided us with spot-on, crystal-clear insights that have been so valuable as we’ve shaped our messaging and approach to communications."
Phil Green, CEO,
"In 2018 Project 328 developed the first database for Christian women speakers. Vicky worked with this from concept to delivery, creating the design brief and working with the design and development team to create a striking visual identity for the site, which reflected exactly what the project needed. She has been brilliant at ensuring we make the site as easy to use and run as possible, and sourced images and created copy that brought the concept to life. She is so gifted at identifying potential problems and proactively resolving issues. She is brilliant, efficient and effective and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
Natalie Collins, Project 328,
"Vicky was key to helping us shape the message, content and visual style of two films we commissioned for our 50th anniversary celebrations, which were widely viewed and very positively received. She provided invaluable support in clarifying our organisational message overall, making our visual style more consistent and enabling us to communicate more effectively with our supporters. Her communication workshop with our team was really well set up and helped draw out the core of who we are and our voice. The report and follow-up support she gave to our team to help us implement that new voice meant that the work was effectively implemented across our comms channels. We had lots of positive feedback from supporters on the improved comms after her involvement."
Paul Rose, Director, CHIPS,
"Vicky developed the publicity, PR and communications strategy for our festival in 2007 and our ‘Summat’ in 2009. By asking the right questions she really clarified our key messages, our audience, and our ‘style’. She also achieved national profile for the festival and engaged businesses in a way we had never been able to previously. Her impact has been long lasting."
"Vicky has the wisdom, experience and ability to go the root of resolving a problem and then lay out stepping stones to the final answer. Her extensive experience is evident in her input and conversations. The icing on the cake is her humour; you always leave her presence with a sense of contentment!"
