Ok, so if you haven’t heard about this story yet, earlier this week, Weetabix tweeted a photo of their product covered in Heinz beans with the caption “Why should bread have all the fun, when there’s Weetabix?

On the surface, it seems like an odd brand partnership for the two food giants. Twitter agreed, with everyone from KFC, Which?, NHS and the US Embassy getting involved to voice how uncomfortable this combination made them.

Number Sixteen shop front

Our first case study is on our client, Number Sixteen. Number Sixteen is a small wine-store, cafe and micro deli based in the small Somerset village of Wincanton, offering light healthy lunches and all-day tea, coffee and cake. The business was started out of the determination to support and champion local (south-west) winemakers, micro-brewers and distillers who are producing amazing products but aren’t always available in bigger retailers.


Due to being with the business at grassroots, we were tasked with creating a brand new website, all of their social media channels, posting schedule, curated content and bespoke branding.
