Jaffa Oranges gets the MONK treatment

If you’re eating an orange, there’s a very good chance that it’s a Jaffa. Now while their oranges  and the brand may happen to be household ‘must-haves’ the website was sadly lacking and to be honest, had been neglected for far too long. Acting as the digital support for The Little Big Voice, we were tasked to design and build their new website.

The site had to fully responsive, it had to have an intuitive CMS and most importantly, it had to look great.
Not a problem.
Today Jaffa have a website that meets all their requirements.

The Groovy Food Company

Groovy Foods are downright scrumptious and packed with goodness and nothing else. They’re a caring, fun brand with a great range of products in their portfolio. What’s also refreshing to hear, they’re going from strength to strength.

So when our friends at The Little Big Voice asked us to look at The Groovy Food website – we bit their hands off at the opportunity. This was the chance for a to design and build a lovely little site, complete with a shop – all for a brand we all believed in.

Take a moment to look at the website.

Pernod Ricard – The Code

Pernod Ricard are, as you would expect, a very responsible company. This means they take their role as one of the major brands within the alcohol industry seriously. Which is why when they wanted to ensure they had a good attendance to a day where they would be discussing their ongoing responsibility with their staff, they came to MONK.

As ever, our approach was slightly left-field. We created a game show called The CODE.

But before we could have staff playing in The CODE, we had to make sure the event was packed. So we sent out a  direct mail pack with a secret message hidden in it.

Come the day of the event and the game show, we treated it like the big news it was and even went so far as to have a title sequence for it.
