To cap off a year of successes and significant growth, RH has been placed within The Drum’s coveted Top 100 Independent Agency list for 2017!

As well as making it into the 2017 Top 100, RH also secured the top spot nationally the Turnover Per Head category amongst SMEs (1-25 staff). The award follows a string of good news for RH, including three RAR Digital nominations earlier this year and achieving Google Premier Partner status in the last 12 months.

The Top 100 is the cherry on the cake for RH in 2017, which has seen the agency consolidate its specialism in the Education and Local Government sector adding some major new client wins including the University of Huddersfield, the University of Plymouth International School, University Centre Somerset and Hampshire County Council.

“It’s been a particularly impressive year for RH”, said Paul Ridgers, Managing Director, “we’ve got a highly talented team whose creativity, innovation and sheer hard work has been rewarded with some significant client wins as well as expansion of our existing client activity”.

“Our digital activity has increased exponentially and we have also seen growth in traditional media as well. In the age of digital and media-only agencies, RH are becoming almost unique as a truly through the line full service communications agency. It’s fantastic for our expertise to be rewarded by the Drum’s prestigious Top 100 recognition”.

New clients and a continual drive to innovate across digital channels has meant that the RH team has expanded in 2017.

“The South West is increasingly recognised as one of the best places in the UK in terms of digital innovation so it’s brilliant to be able to attract more talent to the area to work on exciting national and international projects,” said Tom Ritchie, Head of Digital.

“It’s been a particularly busy and exciting time in our 40-year history!”

With turnover planned to exceed £6m this financial year and impressive pitch win percentage, the future is looking bright for an agency established in Exeter way back in 1976.

After designing the branding, and producing a launch campaign, for the new University Centre Somerset, we were delighted to be asked to provide ideas for the interior of the new university building itself.

With a brief to provide a stimulating, engaging and fun environment for both students and staff, we designed bespoke wall graphics that highlighted key facts about the courses and subjects. On larger walls, we show-cased students and student life in Somerset with impactful floor to ceiling photography. This is just the first stage of an ongoing project.


Want to know how to reduce your food waste? Our latest campaign with Recycle Devon can help you do just that!

To encourage residents in Devon to reduce food waste by making the most out of their fridge or freezer, RH is running an incentivised campaign where residents have the opportunity to receive a Free Love Food Hate Waste box full of helpful tools, tips and tricks on how to prevent food waste by solving an interactive puzzle.

This bespoke puzzle can be solved by clicking on the tiles, which contain imagery of regularly stored food items, and sliding them into the correct order they should be stored in the fridge. Not only is the puzzle informative but it also provides an additional opportunity for measurable engagement, which can be utilised by Recycle Devon to calculate the approx. tonnage of food being removed from the waste disposal system.

The campaign features three short films rewinding the decaying of potatoes, strawberries and bread and enjoys a cross-channel approach, using a combination of radio, strategically placed 6 sheets in the county as well as digital activity to encourage the residents to try and solve the “Big Chill challenge” and save a massive £700 a year.

The campaign is running until the end of October so why not visit Recycle Devon and tell food waste where to go!

Weston Park, the beautiful stately home and gardens on the Shropshire, Staffordshire border is perhaps best known for hosting the V-Festival and prestigious events like the G8 Leader’s Conference.

But there’s much more to it than that: weddings, parties, corporate events, family days out, art exhibitions and fantastic local food and drink.

With everything Weston Park offers a new website was needed, to properly showcase this unique property.

After already working with Weston on promotional print pieces, we were pleased to be given the brief to design and build the new site.

In answer, we have produced an image led site, featuring new photography, that is both aspirational and engaging with much more emphasis on social media.
