This week we have received a multitude of exciting files, parcels and news. After receiving the amazing images from our lookbook shoot, we have been creating and editing the lookbook itself. This includes a beautiful hero image of both of the sample pouches, detailed shots of the luxury pieces and mock ups of the other six designs. This lookbook is now complete and we have begun to contact stockists with regards to our luxury leather pouches.
This week we were also sent images from the Estella Bartlett’s Christmas campaign shoot. We were informed that the shoot went very smoothly and this is clear in the beautiful imagery we have been sent. The gift guides are now live on the their website and we are proud to show you our Green Plant Leaves phone case featured in the Plant Lover guide. We feature in a lifestyle image alongside the uniquely stunning Estella Bartlett Fern earrings and award winning, non toxic, breathable nail polish company Nailberry with their fantastic Minty Fresh Nail Polish. The gift guides include many more lovely luxury brands who we are keen to collaborate with further in the future. We also feature in the New Girlfriend Gift guide with our Peach Marble phone case, however we are not allowed to release this via social media as of yet.
Furthermore this week we have begun discussing with photographer Ferran Verges about a potential collaboration, which we are very excited about. He has fantastic ideas for Harper & Blake’s Instagram, as well as desires to work creatively with us on our ever-improving website. Born in Barcelona, the London based photographer has an amazing conceptual take, producing exceptionally aesthetic, clean images, which we feel is perfect for Harper & Blake.
Following the exciting arrival of our phone case packaging from Precious Packaging, our sample phone case and MacBook case order to showcase to a big potential stockist has arrived! Cases include some of our most popular prints such as: White, Black and Peach Marble, Peach Dalmatian, Agate Marble Chevron and Polka Dots in green and pink. All cases have a rubberised finish and have Harper & Blake logo printed in gold on the black underside of the case.
In addition, initial planning is complete and work has begun on Harper & Blake’s November and December marketing campaigns. November’s will predominantly use video as its main medium and will actively involve viewers, encourage the public to take part and thus aims to build our community. December’s Christmas campaign will incorporate various companies from our base Shed studios, and will offer the chance for our followers to win Harper & Blake produce.
This week has also involved the continuation of interviews, in our search for the perfect interns to join our team. We have met many more talented students this week and with further interviews scheduled for next week we realise the decision process is going to be incredibly difficult!
