Portfolio Review: British Teddies Social Media Package.

The British Teddy Bear Company are as much an institution in Britain as the Queen and a good cup of tea. So naturally, Codastar wanted to give them the royal treatment with Social Media pages to reflect their natural

First up was the Twitter page for a very special (and very mischievous!) bear indeed – Student Bear. The Student Bear is part of an on-going competition for universities and students alike. The idea of the competition is for photos of the bears to be submitted via twitter using the ‘@’ or the hashtag in creative and clever poses and places.

With this in mind, the twitter background includes ‘Polaroid’ style photos of the bears in action, with a collage of bears in the background of the bio.

The Facebook page was far more diverse, with an interest in showcasing a selection of bears, as well as the student one.

Three tabs were developed; one for Florence Nightingale Bear, one for Armed Forces Bear, one for the Police Bear, and one for Student Bear.

Each tab was designed and created especially with each bear in mind, showcasing pictures of their celebrity friends, links back to the website to buy the bear of choice, as well as key areas detailing the charities and work that the company so selflessly carries out with every bear purchased.

Along with contact details, bear photos, corporate logos, calls to action and the back story of each bear, rest assured bear fans will be keen to explore the new page, and with a new ‘like’ are likely to make a fluffy new friend along the way.

Portfolio Review: Bright Talent Recruitment.

Bright Talent Recruitment are a company that revolves around communication – so with this in mind, they wanted to branch out with social networks to allow clients and candidates  alike to consult with them in a slightly more informal setting.  With this in mind, Codastar put together custom designs and bespoke Facebook tabs for them to hit the ground running within the social-sphere.

The Twitter page features the recruitment cartoon consultants, and the corporate colours across the bio and background alike. The page is simple and effective, with further information on how to find them on alternate websites/social networks too.

Their Google+ page follows suit to Twitter, with an eye-catching logo dominating the page, with clear contact details for further information beneath.

With Recruitment companies performing a lot of online networking within Linkedin, it was imperative that the services section fit the bill. The scrolling clickable images allow for cross platform engagement on Twitter and Facebook. The newly designed services page offer everything a cutting edge agency, included the option to submit CVs (whilst keeping ‘anonymous’ to suspecting employers on site), as well as client services such as executive search and job role submissions.

Finally, the Facebook page is the piece de résistance, with a cover banner design and a custom design ‘about’ tab.

The cover banner includes a call-to-action encouraging users to ‘like’ to find out more about the brand, with the continued branding featured in the imagery. The ‘About Tab’ features all the information that prospective clients and candidates alike would need to engage with the company. With sliding/changing photos, key bullet points exampling what it is that sets them ahead of their competition, and key services linked from featured buttons, the page is concise and clear in what they wish to achieve.
