Linzi originally approached us to create a corporate website. As the business grew, she recognised there was a demand for corporate gifting in Northern Ireland. This resulted in her wanting to create a separate side of the already well-established business to suit the needs of these B2B customers.

Corporate Website Design

border-icon

The main aim of this corporate website was to create an easy-to-navigate, user-friendly Shopify platform for larger corporate companies to create and purchase large amounts of gifting orders. The new platform also allows customers to create the perfect gift box for their clients and employees through a ‘box builder’. 

Additional features of the Shopify platform allow Linzi and the team at Born & Bred to regularly update their website with a Content Management System, easily track stock levels and make use of upselling and geo-targeting software.

Social Media Campaign

With over 5.3m tourists visiting Northern Ireland in 2019, Born & Bred came to us with a desire to highlight the best of Belfast to boost Northern Irish tourism in a post-COVID world. This resulted in a 4-month tourism marketing campaign for Born & Bred. 

We designed two 2-month social media marketing campaigns aimed towards tourists. These campaigns for Summer and Winter focused on Born & Bred’s key products, whilst also playing on their key products and highlighting some of Belfast’s most famous sights.

Born & Bred Guide to Belfast

The Born & Bred Guide to Belfast was created in-house by our graphic design team at Rapid Agency, which highlighted some of Linzi and the Born & Bred team’s favourite places to visit around Belfast. 

Born & Bred’s newest map highlights the most famous areas of Belfast, featuring some great local businesses and encouraging tourists to experience some of Belfast’s true gems – an Ulster Fry, a bowl of stew and a pint of Guinness. 

The Born & Bred Guide to Belfast was designed for digital and print use, with printed maps available in-store at Born & Bred, and digitised maps available to download from the website.

Coming from all walks of life, the chosen influencers demonstrated that whether your day-to-day involves glitz and glamour, a trip to the farm or a round in the ring, you’ll always find a wee piece of home at Born & Bred.
