Clinton’s has negotiated and secured interviews for the charity on a number of high profile platforms, including BBC news at One, Good Morning Britain,  Sky News, ITV news, CNN International and The Huffington Post  among others.

Clinton launches exciting new venture: The Clinton LAB

TCL300

Simon Clinton, founder of The Clinton Partnership, has entered a new joint venture with Nick Gray, Managing Director of retail agency “Live & Breathe”. 

The Clinton LAB was created to bring together the above-the-line experience of The Clinton Partnership and Live & Breathe’s integrated retail expertise. It will target like-minded entrepreneurial and challenger brands looking for an alternative to the traditional agency approach.

In August 2016, The Happy Egg Company announced it had awarded its multi-million pound above-the-line account to the The Clinton LAB, following a competitive pitch against Publicis London. The agency’s first task will be to deliver a multichannel campaign led by TV, due to break late in 2016.

Simon Clinton, Chairman of The Clinton LAB, commented, “This is a fantastic kick-off to an exciting new agency venture with Live & Breathe. Having launched Noble Foods’ Happy Egg Company brand eight years ago, and subsequently creating three highly effective TV campaigns, we are genuinely thrilled to be re-appointed and look forward to embarking on the next stage in our working relationship.”

The happy egg co. Sponsors ITV’s Good Morning Britain local weather!

Clinton’s, as the official Ad agency for the happy egg co, wanted to create a series of emotionally engaging idents to leverage the happy egg co sponsorship of ITV’s Good Morning Britain local weather.

It was really key that we continued to build the strong bond & relationship with our existing consumers, whilst targeting all new free range egg users.

These simple, fun, & engaging series of 18 idents continue to reinforce how no one goes further than the happy egg co when it comes to keeping our girls happy !

We have had amazing feedback for our idents, which bring some creativity to the usually bland world of TV sponsorships – enjoy !

Whittard: Refreshing an iconic British brand

The agency are proud to have played a central role in re positioning this 125 year old iconic British brand & global retailer.

Whittard was founded back in 1886 by Walter Whittard in Chelsea, London, and we were keen to bring back some of those founding principles & values to today’s consumer.

The agency were brought in directly by the CEO to help develop a clear, concise and differentiated positioning to move the brand forward after decades of neglect.

Having developed a compelling positioning, the agency created a radically new corporate identity, overhauled the entire packaging range with some beautiful new packs (over 150 sku’s!), and wrapped up with some stunning ads that clearly communicate the all new Whittard to the world.

To see our work please contact us or visit the Whittard flagship store in Covent garden, London to see the work in action !

Does it really matter?

Simon Clinton, Clinton Partnership CEO and founder of Save Wild Tigers, reflects on the current situation the wild tiger faces in the lead up to global tiger day, July 29th 2014.

‘I was asked by a BBC radio presenter recently, “does it really matter that wild tigers may soon become extinct, surely that’s evolution?” I don’t really need to tell you what my answer was!

Unfortunately, the plight of the wild tiger is symbolic of the issues facing our wildlife worldwide. Poaching (led by the demand for animal parts and skins) and habitat destruction & fragmentation (often resulting in increased human/animal conflict), are two major issues which are not just decimating wild tiger populations, but are killing off rhinos, elephants, lions and numerous other species at an alarming rate.

If we can’t win the fight to save one of the world’s most iconic species – the wild tiger – then what hope lies for the rest?

So my answer is simple. Yes it does matter. It matters because after millions of years of existence on this planet, in as few as 10-15 years, many of these iconic species could be extinct in the wild forever, their habitat dead or destroyed and whole ecosystems wiped out as a result. Imagine the oldest rainforest in the world , in Malaysia for example, gone forever, together with the Malayan Tiger? How can we let that happen?

July 29th is World Tiger day, and today we can announce that official estimates for wild Tiger numbers are down, probably as few as 3,000 globally.

So if you also think saving the wild tiger matters, please make yourself heard and do something to help. We need fresh thinking, fresh emphasis, fresh impetus, if we have any hope of changing the tigers current path to extinction.

Let’s inspire the generation out there today about the value and inherent majesty of the wild tiger for the sake of future generations… lets ensure that art galleries and zoo`s don’t become the only legacy for the tiger if we don’t succeed.

Together we can make a difference so please join me in the fight back and help #inspire4tigers

Thank you …..’

Driven by a burning bright passion to help wild tigers

Our CEO, Simon Clinton, talks to the Environmental Investigation Agency about his passion for conservation and what inspired him to set up Save Wild Tigers…

I was recently asked, in a live radio interview in Kuala Lumpur why an Englishman from London, with a background in marketing & advertising, producing TV ads for brands such as The Happy Egg Co, had come to Malaysia to help save wild tigers?

For me the answer was simple – I grew up in Malaysia; indeed, my first exposure to tigers was here as a child in the early ’70s and, like so many people, I have been captivated by their magnificence ever since.

I have always been passionate about conservation; however, around five years ago I was asked to help market and launch Europe’s first-ever tiger art exhibition, here in London at Asia House. Only then did the irony hit me, that this stunning tiger-inspired art exhibition, with some of the pieces dating back thousands of years, could soon be the only way in which we see tigers. Art and pictures … could this really be the legacy we leave our future generations if we do not act, and act quickly?

My reaction was to set up Save Wild Tigers in 2011 as a non-profit organisation, bringing big marketing thinking and creativity to the cause globally. No spin here – the situation is desperate; there are now fewer than 3,500 tigers left in the wild and 95 per cent of their traditional habitat has been destroyed. Having roamed the planet for over two million years, we now face the prospect that we have 10 years left to save the wild tiger, or 10 years until possible extinction. We need to act now, to cut through the negativity, the scepticism and sometimes the simple lack of interest and move forward to inspire and capture the public’s (and core stakeholders’) imaginations. We need to convert that enthusiasm into action and essential, critically required funds. Working very closely with our NGO partners, the Environmental Investigation Agency and the Born Free Foundation, we are forging a powerful team.
