Our week: Media coverage, gnomes & Arsene Wenger

 

OK, this wasn’t just any old week, this was the week when Eleven Hundred Agency opened its doors for the very first time.

And what beautiful doors they are! We took up residence in our new office in London’s utterly fabulous Business Design Centre at the start of the week.  You can find some pics of our new home - including some mildly offensive garden gnomes -  on our Facebook page and on Twitter.

We’re in good company. Not only are there whole host of exciting start-ups based here, it’s even frequented by Arsenal Football Club. Imagine my surprise when Arsene Wenger, Steve Bould and the entire first team trooped past our doors on Wednesday, on their way to the adjacent hotel for some R&R before the match against Chelsea. I was too flabbergasted to even take a selfie.  

It was great to see PR Week, MarComm News and Gorkana (amongst others) cover the news of our birth. More to come in the next few weeks.

Of course, there’s been real client work undertaken along the way. Articles have been pitched, interviews set up and proposals submitted. Not even the admin – including the mountain of forms required by the bank, HMRC and Companies House – has remotely felt like work.

Roll on next Monday.
