Would you have a drink with your own brand?

Is print dead?
October 28, 2019
Everybody knows that digital media has exploded over the last few years and that print circulation can certainly be seen as ‘in decline’!

Our take on the 2019 Birmingham Design Festival
July 23, 2019
June 2019 saw the return of the Birmingham Design Festival, so after the success of last year we descended on Birmingham on mass from our studio. But what did we all think? A month has past and we’ve all had time to digest the fascinating talks, workshops and experiences. So we asked the team... ‘What was your main take away from BDF2019?’
July 10, 2019
As Creative Director, I am excited to announce that from this month Jess and Mike, will be taking on a new joint role of Creative Lead.
Empowering our clients to believe
December 6, 2018
We Are Ghost work with many small to medium-sized enterprises, or SME businesses; ones that have grown over years and don’t have the formal structure of multi-national businesses, let alone a dedicated marketing department. Which we really don’t mind since we are experts in this field. Why have one in-house member of staff when you […]

Focus on your business
July 9, 2018
We often have new clients come to We Are Ghost with a great business idea that they know will work, but they’re just not sure how to communicate that business to potential clients.

Let’s Go Outside!
June 26, 2018
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how amazing this months weather has been. With this in mind, I pretty much bit our Creative Directors hand off, when I was given the opportunity to have a morning basking in Lichfield’s glorious sunshine.

Anthony’s take on the Birmingham Design Festival
June 20, 2018
I’ve been to a number of these types of events over the years, but never one of this size in my home city of Birmingham. I was really keen to see how big this festival could become since its announcement (for me) at a Glug Birmingham event. With Luke and Daniel leading the event, it […]
Jonathan’s take on the Birmingham Design Festival
June 20, 2018
I promised myself that I wasn’t going to write a fabricated experience and make the festival sound like an inspirational guru quest. Although I feel a lot would have attended with the hopes that this miracle will happen, I somewhat maybe thought this myself. Instead I’m going to take a real approach as to why […]
