MAXX meets Bruce

Last week, we attended a breakfast event where we got to hear Twitter EMEA VP and author Bruce Daisley’s thoughts on modern working environments. Put on by ConnectTalks in a beautiful rooftop communal space, the talk was an intimate gathering of industry professionals from various sectors.

Are Vloggers the new celebrities?

Last weekend Vlogger and YouTube sensation James Charles (you can check out his YouTube channel here) visited the Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham to open a brand new Morphe store, previously only available in London.

(Also if you haven’t watched his YouTube videos “you can use code James for 10% off” - this is one of his catchphrases along with “Hi Sisters, James Charles here and welcome back to my YouTube channel”)

MAXX is now CSR Accredited!

We are excited to announce that MAXX has been awarded a silver status award in recognition of our contribution to Corporate Social Responsibility with CSR Accreditation https://csr-accreditation.co.uk/. It’s a really important certification that shows we are a business that takes active steps to create a positive working environment, ultimately impacting the wider environment.

The consumer demand for social change

Social, economic and environmental issues have been shied away from by businesses for fear of alienating consumers, but now those same consumers are demanding some kind of acknowledgement or action. Businesses are showing compassion and strength, either supporting causes they’re passionate about or using their voice to say what they believe.

For the past 20 years Pantone has released their chosen colour to represent the year ahead. It influences product development and purchasing decisions made in a number of industries including fashion, home, graphic design and packaging.

This year for our Christmas campaign we decided to do things a little differently. Instead of running a competition to win a prize we just wanted to get everyone to share the love this XXMAS.

Christmas Advert Round Up 2018

Christmas is here! We are in amongst the food shop stress, secret Santa fails and Christmas party hangovers. In all seriousness, Christmas is a time for celebration and to feel good with our nearest and dearest. Christmas adverts start launching at the end of November, kicking off the festive season. This year we have dissected the offerings presented from some of the UK’s top retailers and brands. There is a lot to talk about this year, with some standouts and some that leave a lot to be desired. Let’s kick things off with none other than John Lewis.

When someone asks ‘what is your favourite Christmas advert?’ there is always one that instantly pops into your head.
