Use Personality to Delight Your Customers

Use Personality to Delight Your Customers

Is your business playful or serious? Cutting-edge or traditional? If you've not considered its personality, then you could be sending out mixed-messages!

Personality makes a company feel more human. By personifying your business, decision-making becomes natural. You know in your heart what will be "on-brand".

We Made It: Our Year In Review

We Made It: Our Year In Review

2017 is the year we took a huge leap of faith in order to make our dreams a reality. 

Our entire childhood is a montage of getting stuck in, being creative, and making up elaborate stories together. Then in 2011, whilst studying at Sixth Form, we penned the name Buttercrumble. We shared our creations as Buttercrumble for fun and feedback before studying at the University of Leeds. This is where we had our Eureka moment! We could do what we love and support others whilst creating a living for ourselves. 

We were brought up in a small seaside town where we had no business network and no investment so we had to start at the very beginning. It was the support of our university, family and previous employers that allowed us to launch Buttercrumble. They made it happen but it's the wonderful people we met this year who helped us sustain and grow.

Here's how we made it - one year in business - our year in review.

It's been an exciting time at the Buttercrumble HQ. After illustrating at John Lewis in November, we are pleased to announce we'll be returning with an 11-day Christmas Illustration Tour. Over December, we will be visiting John Lewis' northern stores to capture customers in cute portrait form. We want to invite YOU into Moz the Monster’s world through illustration which sparks the imagination. Together, we will be creating the perfect festive atmosphere through live illustration in-store.

Earlier this November, we had the pleasure of performing live illustration at John Lewis' flagship store in Leeds. It was a joy to create customer portraits in a beautiful retail setting as part of John Lewis' Christmas Shopping Event. We were certainly feeling festive by the end of the evening!
