Christopher Ward - C60 Blue
The ocean is the biggest carbon sink on the planet and extraordinary blue carbon habitats have a vital role to play in solving the climate crisis. We helped British watch brand Christopher Ward raise awareness of their partnership with ocean conservation charity Blue Marine Foundation and showcase the need to build the value of the ocean as a climate change solution. Programmes include active blue carbon restoration, the provision of scientific evidence to understand these complicated processes, the application of highly innovative technologies to monitor projects and the public and political campaigning necessary to take blue carbon seriously. We drove people to site helping to boost sales of Christopher Ward’s C60 BLUE, a limited-edition dive watch that quickly sold out helping to raise over £200,000 for Blue Marine Foundation. We achieved over 25 pieces of coverage with the likes of Tatler, Esquire and Condé Nast Traveller as well as key watch titles and blogs. This was one of many projects we have worked on as part of an ongoing relationship between Christopher Ward and Blue Marine Foundation.

They are driven to overachieve.
Head of Marketing
As a company we always felt PR was something that we should be doing, rather than something that we could invest in to yield real benefit. The Ideas Network changed that for us and have worked with us across the whole business; they have helped us with pre-production advice on things like colour trends, have introduced us to some really influential people in the press and have guided us through the minefield that is Social Media. They are always both thought provoking and fun. The upturn in our business is in no small part due to their efforts.
Sales Director
I just want to thank all the team for the
excellent job you have done for us.
