The View From HQ – October


October welcomed a change in seasons, world interest in COP26, and the giants Facebook rebranding their group to Meta as they move from social media into virtual reality. Yikes.

But what’s happened at Millrace? Here are our best bits:

We were born in a storm

Cardiff, what a place to be. The city is growing rapidly as a centre for economic activity, and as a result, is a great place to work, live, and thrive. 2020 will go down in the history books for all the wrong reasons, but for Millrace we saw a time of growth and direction.

Fast-forward 12 months later, and we are rather chuffed about becoming finalists for the category “Professional Services” of the year at the highly anticipated Cardiff Business Awards in November.

Once you’ve finished silently “whooping” for us, read more about the awards on the Cardiff Business Awards website.

Branding out of your house 

Behold! Some branding.

We’ve had fun creating a brand-new brand for a brand-new Estate Agents. Look out for a “For sale” sign popping up near you.

National Baby Loss Awareness Week

Taking place 9th – 15th October every year, Baby Loss Awareness Week raises awareness of pregnancy and baby loss in the UK. Throughout the week, bereaved parents, and their families and friends unite with others across the world to commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.

Remembering, raising awareness, and driving change. All over the UK, iconic places become lit-up in pink and blue to support the event. In Cardiff this year, the lighthouse at Roath Park Lake was one of the places lit to perfection. We work closely with the lighting company responsible for the colourful input, and our social media posts surrounding the event received a rather high number of engagements, as well as being picked up by social media accounts such as “I Loves the ‘Diff”.

Not all superheroes wear capes

Charity, Glamorgan Radio, are based at John Wilce Studio at the Heath Hospital. They broadcast to patients across the University Hospital of Wales, St David’s Hospital and Cardiff Royal Infirmary 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The charity was in desperate need of a facelift outside their studio, so the friendly lot at Dragon Signs put on their capes and pulled out their stencils and glue guns. We were there to capture the carnage and turn the before, during, and after shots into a snazzy video marketing piece.
