Fever’s Flutter for day two of the Cheltenham Festival

To celebrate we have got our resident experts, of which there are none, to give their tips for today’s seven races. Here are all the horses we’ve picked as winners.

Getting curious with…Dan Wong Photography

As an agency that looks after PR, media relations, design, video production, events, social, digital and influencer marketing, good photography is vital to the success of our campaigns. Step forward, Dan Wong, our resident photographer and all round good guy. Dan is involved in pretty much every bit of business across Fever, as well as Nelson Bostock and other Creston agencies. With his very trusty Canon gear (what else right), he can do it all – from product photography to… Read more…

James Acaster “Reset” – Udderbelly Festival 2016

What connects a supermarket honey scam, the name Shaun (or Sean), and the witness protection act? Sadly, it’s not a regional news headline generator. It’s comedian James Acaster – four-time Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Award nominee. Let’s face it, it’s been a miserable week/month/year (delete as appropriate). And that’s just the weather. So, refusing to give up, we headed down to the Udderbelly Festival for some cheering up. In concept, the pop-up Southbank venue is clearly designed for summer – outside… Read more…

Time to announce the #OfficeElfie winner

Each year we try to come up with something fun as a way to send festive greetings to our friends. And each year the pressure is on – What can we do to top last year? Will people enjoy it as much? How can we make sure it’s something people will want to talk about? After brainstorms that started back in June (we take Christmas very seriously) and lots of deliberating, we came up with #OfficeElfie. It’s everything you need… Read more…

Dear Santa…

Whether you love it or hate it (we LOVE it), there’s no getting away from the fact that Christmas is fast approaching. While belting out heart-wrenching renditions of ‘All I Want for Christmas’, we’ve been thinking about what we ACTUALLY want for Christmas. Let’s just say that we’re a bit more materialistic than Mariah! We’ve been thinking about what we want this year and what we longed for as children, get ready for some serious nostalgia… What was your dream… Read more…

2015 at Fever

As we count down the days to a well-earned Christmas break of lazy mornings, Christmas movies, and far too much food, we thought there’s no better way to end than to look back at some of our 2015 highlights. It was such a busy year we couldn’t fit everything in, so here are our best bits! January We kicked off 2015 with our HTC Selfie Stylist campaign – remember when Alexis Knox, the world’s first Selfie Stylist taught us (and… Read more…

A Ms Marmite Lover Christmas dinner

Sadly for us, the people who think that all we PRs do is party and drink champagne are wrong (and probably watching wayyyyy too much Ab Fab). Having said that – it’s CHRRRRRISSSSSTTTTMAAAAAAAAS – the closest we get to having a taste of the Don Draper lifestyle. A 5-hour boozy lunch or dinner to celebrate the years achievements is technically part of the job, and we don’t have to feel the slightest bit guilty. To kick off our festive food-fest… Read more…

When we grow up we want to be…

A couple of our Senior Account Managers recently wrote a blog about doing a PR degree vs. not doing one, and had a falling out as a result. As well as tears and hurt feelings*, it also sparked another loud conversation… what did everyone want to be when they were grown up. As you can imagine the Fever team, not famed for their understated personas, all had very high expectations of their futures and the bright lights of stardom was… Read more…

Lee Leaving – The End of an Era

You may have seen the sad news on PR Week that our much loved CEO, and favourite engineer-turned-PR from Salford, Lee Nugent has decided to step down in January next year. Lee has been within the Nelson Bostock Group for nearly 20 years now. He played a big role in launching Fever and it goes without saying he’ll be greatly missed by everyone at the agency. Lee has written a personal note that has been shared on Nelson Bostock’s blog – head here… Read more…

Did someone say a new website?

So you might have noticed we have a new website (we may have mentioned it online a couple of thousand times). WELL, it was designed entirely in house by our incredible studio team, and one of the designers in said team has written us a guest blog to talk you through it. Get a tea and sit down for the whole lowdown. We have a shiny new website! Exciting, right? As a designer for Fever, I felt as though I… Read more…

Half-term Minions Mayhem

This week Fever teamed up with everyone’s favourite goggle-wearing yellow sidekicks, to celebrate the release of MINIONS on Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD from 16th November. We celebrated the occasion with a fun half-term mummy blogger morning. Bloggers and their children were invited to a UK exclusive screening of the MINIONS Mini-Movies at Soho Hotel. Inspired by the Minions love of everything yellow, the children and their parents spent the morning in a ‘Minionised’ room, where they got busy making… Read more…

Pour homme. Pour femme. Pour survivor!

With fans dying to gorge on Season 6 of hit zombie drama The Walking Dead when it launches this week, we helped NOW TV unveil McBusted heartthrob, Harry Judd, as the face of ‘Obfleshion – Eau de Walker’ – a brand new fragrance designed to help fans ward off unwanted Walker attention. The last season of the show opened with one of the characters, Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), covering herself in the blood of a flesh-eating Walker to mask her… Read more…

Fever Friday Five

The morning commute into Soho can be a challenge: from grid-locked roads to overcrowded trains. A group of designers have come up with a handful of outlandish ideas to revamp the journey – from the LidoLine; a swimmable route along Regent’s Canal, to Skycycle; bike lanes suspended above railway lines. You can check out the full list here. We’d had enough of food and fashion when Lady Gaga shocked us with that meat-inspired dress. And although sausage rolls and satchels… Read more…

Fever Friday Five

Japanese-inspired LA lifestyle brand Tokidoki has partnered with Mattel to release a limited edition range of collector’s Barbies, and we love them! Developed as a way for Barbie to ‘express her creativity’, the alternative plastic icons feature pink or purple hair, tattoo sleeves and a range of elaborate body art. Befitting of any East London mantel piece if you ask us. Sales of Kilner jars are on the up, as everyone’s getting themselves in a pickle over preserves. With celebrity… Read more…

Living the DrEEm

At the weekend, some of the Fever team headed over to Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, to hear Ed Sheeran play his set and spend a great night in the company of some brilliant journalists from a range of national publications . We sadly weren’t there for the Friday when the legend that is Elton John graced the stage, but we certainly didn’t draw the short straw as on top of Ed we also got to see two incredible live… Read more…

Frankie, Joint MD of Fever, talks flexible working with PR Week

Flexible working is a hot topic in the PR industry right now, and as somebody who makes use of flexible working patterns herself, our Joint MD Frankie Oliver was a natural choice to discuss the issue with PR Week. She argues that agency heads need to overcome their paranoia and fears about flexible working by treating their staff like adults. Read the full article here. Read more…

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE As Game of Thrones fans prepare themselves for the season finale to end all finales next week, HBO has allegedly dropped a bombshell to delight box-set bingers one and all. Two unlikely worlds are set to collide as it has been announced that Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston (Walter White) has been cast to feature in Season 6 of GoT!

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE Fever’s intrepid outdoor swimmers are in a frenzy about the UK’s first man-made fresh water public bathing pond slap bang in the middle of the usually less than tranquil Kings Cross. Part art installation, part leisure project, ‘Of Soil and Water’ enables city dwellers to submerge themselves in freezing cold pure water amidst wild flowers against the backdrop of the city.

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE Yo. Diehard Breaking Bad fans will be thrilled to hear that a themed cocktail bar is opening in London from July for three months.

Tuesday Night Fever

Fever’s Friday Five

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE We are loving the work of Alex Sturrock, a street photographer who was alleged to be the muse behind Adele’s Someone Like You. After a successful career, Sturrock looked back over his work and realised he had only ever taken one picture he truly liked, ‘a street photo that he’d taken without any agenda other than his own.’ Sturrock’s work intends to challenge what we think we know by finding ‘something familiar in something alien’.… Read more…

Fever's Favourite Fiction

It’s official, The London Book Fair has opened its doors for a new chapter in literary discovery.

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE Speaking at Ad Week Europe yesterday, Grayson Perry CBE, the artist famed for his wonderfully eccentric dress sense, said striving to be cool and original stifles creativity. Apparently, creatives growing beards is an ironic attempt to reject conformitism and strive for authenticity and we need to stop trying to be original in order to generate genuine creativity. He called for creatives to be uncool, vulnerable and don’t try to be original. Try telling that to… Read more…

The end of an era: Martin Bostock is retiring from Nelson Bostock Group Unlimited

We’re sad to announce that our much-loved founder of Nelson Bostock Group Unlimited (and Group chairman), Martin Bostock, is retiring after a frankly staggering 28 years. Martin founded Nelson Bostock with Roger Nelson in 1987 (a date which left most of the younger Feverites looking puzzled) and after Roger’s retirement in 2007, took on the role of Chairman and oversaw the appointment of the board of directors that runs Nelson Bostock Group Unlimited today.

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE Barbie got a digital makeover at this year’s New York Toy Fair which showed off such fantastical toys as light sabre BBQ tongs, a life size chewbacca and a poop emoji mask.

According to Mattel, the doll has been created to satisfy every little girls’ dream of talking to Barbie. At 59… Read more…

Fever’s Friday Five

SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE We honestly hadn’t noticed it was Valentine’s Weekend until we spotted this, ‘only in America’ declaration of love. Doting boyfriend Brian commissioned artist Dylann Bonner to paint him and his ridiculously hot girlfriend Manini into famous scenes from Disney films. Brian says: “I want our relationship to be as epic and timeless as the animations we grew up on.” It makes our M&S Dine in for £20 look a bit lame. Read more…

HTC came to us with the task to reach 10 million people globally with Face Fusion – a cool camera feature that lets you merge two photos of faces into one face.

Fever goes back to 1994

Believe it or not, it was 20 years ago this month that the original PlayStation® was born and since then we’ve seen four generations of consoles launch, along with a never-ending list of incredible games.
