We thought it was about time to share lots of exciting work that we've done recently for the retail giant Matalan! Yay.

Admittedly Becs has spent a fair amount of time lurking around Matalan stores in recent months to see her work on the in-store POS, hear her wording on the Matalan radio and pick up leaflets containing her headlines... she's a total word nerd.

It gives us happy feelings to see all of this work!

Our Monday afternoon cuppa was made even better today by reading our ‪copywriting‬ work in the fabulous Christmas & New Year Breaks Brochure by Lake District Hotels!

Lake District Hotels are a collection of seven award winning hotels in the Lake District. Owned and run by the Graves family, the hotels are situated in the most beautiful parts of the Lakes.

This was a fanastic project which Becs loved working on (she really got into the festive season in August!), especially as the hotels are situated across Cumbria - where we both grew up!

Take a look at our other copywriting work for Lake District Hotels.

What an amazing place to stay during the festive season! Get more info on the Lake District Hotels website.

We have absolutely loved working on the website, room folder & brochure copy for the gorgeous new hotel (opening soon!!) the Inn on the Square, part of Lake District Hotels.

We just had to share with you all how totally amazing the hotel looks!

What a lovely job to work on, some of our favourite parts to write include...

"Imagine modern Scandinavian design mixed with a love for all things Cumbrian – our family-owned Keswick hotel simply oozes comfortable indulgence (with optional adventures on the side)."

"Gobble, scoff, glug, nibble, sip or guzzle. No matter how you say it - food and drink is very important when you’re in the Lakes."

The Organic Juicery are a healthy drinks producer based in the North West of England who produce (totally delicious!) nutritious certified organic, raw, cold pressed juices and nut milks.

In 2014 Hayley from The Organic Juicery got in touch with us because she needed help developing a number of marketing materials including product names, label wording and establishing a unique tone of voice for her brand.

Not only have we totally fallen in LOVE with their delicious, healthy drinks - it has been so fantastic to work with The Organic Juicery on:

- Developing a tone of voice for the brand

- Copywriting product descriptions and labels

- Providing ideas for product names

- Leaflet artwork including copywriting

- Promotional business card artwork for use at events

- Copywriting website content:

We are very excited that The Organic Juicery have just launched their brand new website complete with wording all written by us! Take a peek at and why not treat your body to one of their amazing cleanses packed full of the very best organic goodness!

We were also very happy to get some lovely feedback from Hayley about our work:

"We are soon to launch The Organic Juicery and we've worked with some incredible businesses along the way, none of which compare to Fi & Becs. Not only are they ridiculously efficient, have brilliant minds and a way with words that I envy, they 'get us' and deliver what we need without us needing to ask... An absolute find!"

In early 2015, Manchester based dental practice KS Dental got in touch with us after seeing a post we had written about website design on the local social network Street Life.

With two dental practices located in Sale and Urmston (local to Becs!) KS Dental already had a website but they wanted something which was more exciting and engaging for their online presence.

After have a couple of quick chats with Annemarie from KS Dental, we started work on building them a brand new website (teeth graphics 'n all). From copywriting to the overall design, page build, SEO and re-directing the domain - everything was done within 3 weeks.

Here is some of our copywriting in action:

"Our dental practice offers a wide range of services from routine dental treatments to cosmetic dentistry including implants, teeth whitening, veneers, bridges and more.

Located in Sale, Greater Manchester, we pride ourselves on giving a warm, friendly and welcoming service to all of our clients."

We've really enjoyed working on this website, particularly as KS Dental gave us free reign to add some nice design features like the tooth puzzle graphic and the shiny tooth on the Teeth Whitening Page

This morning we're having a (very exciting) cup of tea and reading our copywriting work in the latest Matalan mailer that just popped through Becs' letter box!

Filled with great offers, lovely clothing and fresh looks for your home, the mailer goes out to 3.5 million Matalan Reward Card holders.

We're so proud and pleased to see our wording used in the mailer, it was a great piece of work which we really enjoyed doing (and we're a little bit in love with the Matalan homeware range). Keep your eyes peeled for more pieces of our Matalan copywriting work coming soon!

Back in November 2014 we were excited to be contacted by a dental practice based in Poynton, Stockport who needed their first ever website.

Although the practice had been operating very successfully since 2009, they had never needed an online presence - so when a new management team took over the practice in 2014 (and gave it the brand new name: TLC Dental!) they decided to launch the first ever website for the surgery.

Tina from TLC Dental got in touch with us in mid November and by the 5th December the new website was designed, built, content w ritten and ready to go!

The brief: Build a modern, clean and easy to navigate website with a family-friendly, professional feel and a clear description of the practice and their services.

We also wrote the wording on the TLC dental website:

"We're all about providing dental care with a personal touch. Our dental practice is family friendly, we provide dental treatments tailored to your requirements and we are dedicated to giving you confidence in your smile."

After a few final tweaks added by Tina (following a training session by Becs on editing the new website!) we are proud that the TLC Dental website has launched today!

Take a look at the TLC Dental website:

TLC Dental are a lovely dental practice who have been great to work with - the delight of a very clear brief!!

We are fond to a glass of wine (or two), therefore it was certainly very easy for us to get excited about developing a brand, website and doing the copywriting for our latest start-up client...

Let us introduce the brand new fantastic wine tasting business: Proviamo Vino!

The brief: Develop a logo and a website for a brand new business who are all about fun, flexible wine tastings. The essence of the brand and website was to be down-to-earth, conversational, friendly, relaxed and all about wine.

Here is some of our wording:

"Down-to-earth wine tastings which are totally tailored to your requirements...

Translate 'Proviamo Vino' into English and you get our ethos: ‘Let’s Try Wine’...

We believe that everyone should drink wine that's worth tasting. That’s why we offer fun, dynamic wine tastings that are all about trying wines that you can actually find on the shelves at your local supermarket.

Quite simply - our passion is to bring supermarket wines to life and help you find fantastic wine which you can buy directly off the shelf."

Take a peek at the website:

A perfect wine-filled activity for a Christmas-do, Birthday party, or even a girly Saturday afternoon!

There's not many things we love better than helping a start-up company find their voice, develop a fantastic look and feel for their brand and launch a website they can be really proud of!

Today we have launched the website for Surrey's Little Talkers - a brand new company providing speech and language therapy services for children aged two and upwards in the North and East Surrey area.

The brief: Use the Surrey's Little Talkers logo to design and develop an engaging, friendly and professional website with lots of personality and unique touches.

We have loved working on this website with Fiona from Surrey's Little Talkers! Even though we aren't local to Surrey (as we're both based up North) we have held Skype conference calls throughout the project and feel like we have really got to know Fiona even though we have never actually met (in person!).

Take a look at the Surrey's Little Talkers website:

We would highly recommend Surrey's Little Talkers if you are looking for a children's speech therapist in the North and East Surrey area!

Are you a start-up company or someone thinking of starting a brand new business? Make sure your website really engages your target audience and showcases your company in the best way possible.

Don't settle for a generic template website design... work with Fi & Becs to get a totally bespoke website designed and copywritten just for your company!

P.s. Even though we are Northerners we can work with companies based all over the UK.
