Batteries, Bolly and balls!

With the final working week of 2016 in sight, it's a time to reflect on one of our most action-packed, fright-filled, Bolly-fuelled years yet.

From launching the world’s first Reality SVOD service and reigniting the nation’s love for outrageous 90’s icons to powering festive feelings with Duracell’s “It’s What Inside That Counts” video, 2016 has seen our team drive some truly amazing marketing and publicity campaigns.

We even saved lives…but more on that later.

We’re proud of the work produced here at Feref, and this autumn saw a number of our campaigns and colleagues rack up the nominations and wins at some rather prestigious industry awards events.

For the second year running, we’ve been the UK creative lead for global cultural event and new movie Star Wars; and this December we delivered a fully integrated advertising campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that is truly out of this world. The force is strong.
