Seafood Week Part 3: Helping maritime organisations at their best, look their best

When I started work at Acceleris nearly seven years ago (as of next month) little could I have imagined that this would be the beginning of a professional and personal interest of mine in all things maritime.

The irony of our HQ being in one of the most central and landlocked areas of the UK, has often been commented upon. But location has never been a barrier to us becoming one of the leading maritime communications and PR specialists in the country. As my colleague Ellie St George-Yorke said in her latest blog, our maritime sector work has seen us travel extensively and win our firstpan-European client.39-Two residents on the Royal Eagle (Day trip steamer) on the Thames-1934 or 1935

As the Head of Writers Inc., the agency’s dedicated editorial project division, I am very proud of the work the team has done in the maritime industry across the public, private and third sectors. Whatever the client, we help to raise awareness of this country’s connection and dependence on the sea and the extraordinary people who work in sea-related trades.

 

To mark Seafish’s National Seafood Week, I wanted to take the opportunity to showcase some of the editorial projects, online and offline, Acceleris has undertaken for maritime clients. We are open to any brief and will always advise on the best platform and content for their audience and needs; ensure value for money; and work with the best suppliers to get the job done. Our work has so far encompassed:

  • Websites and microsites
  • A commemorative book
  • Info graphics
  • Annual reports
  • Leaflets, presentation folders and other marketing collateral and stationery
  • Social media campaigns.

There are too many from the last seven years to mention here, so I’ve chosen my three favourite, but very different Acceleris editorial projects in this sector to date:ifish

  • iFish – dispelling fishing industry myths on behalf of European trade body Europêche

PROJECT TYPE: Interactive microsite including innovative Fish Facts info graphic

LAUNCHED: April 2015

PEOPLE HAVE SAID: “I’ve looked at iFish and to be quite honest, I think it’s amazing, very well constructed and just the sort of thing we’ve been waiting for, to help promote and portray a real-time picture of the industry in light of so much pressure and negative press.”-Member of the public

  • Home From Sea – 150 years of The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society 150

PEOPLE HAVE SAID: “I am immensely pleased and proud of the book, which met and surpassed our expectations. Since the launch event we have had some verygood feedback from residents, relatives, staff, partner organisations and other external sources. No one could fail to like it and be impressed. We have a book of which we can be justifiably proud and a fitting tribute to the Royal Alfred.” – Commander Brian Boxall-Hunt MBE, Chief Executive of the Society

The first reaction of HRH The Princess Royal, on receiving the first copy of the book as the charity’s Patron, was: “Good title!”
