PGHL founders Jordan Odu and Deborah DeVittoris

Big brands, philanthropic projects & local Pride make up PHGL’s roster of new clients, partners, and events so far in 2024.

Three new client sign-ups across a variety of sectors heralded a busy start to the year for the PR team Pink Gorilla & Hairy Lemon. Alongside the recent client wins, the innovative brand has undergone a refresh courtesy of the talented team at Shine Creative Design and will now go by the name by PGHL.

International burrito brand Boojum has assigned PGHL as their GB partner for their first store opening in Britain, situated in Leeds, as well as for their ambitious ongoing GB roll-out plans.

Added to this, PGHL will be supporting the launch Carousel Bar & Home Nightclub, £2 million developments on the old Tiger Tiger site, and have proudly become the official PR partner for Leeds Pride, one of the largest free Pride events in the country, and such an important event for the LGBTQIA+ Leeds community.

Jordan Odu, PR director, said: “We are so happy that all our hard work has resulted in some major client wins this spring. Being the GB partner for Boojum has been a major coup, and we are so excited to contribute to the amazing philanthropic events happening in the city, such as the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards.

“Nearly a decade in business and I’m proud to say we still have a passion for shouting about exciting businesses – locally, nationally, and now internationally.”

Propaganda brand consultancy has delivered a brand refresh and updated proposition for ReFood, the UK’s leading food waste recycler, in response to challenging market dynamics and increased competition.

Propaganda has worked with ReFood for over 10 years, having created the UK launch and brand strategy back in 2013. The evolved repositioning, with the strapline ;REnergising Britain, focuses on ReFood’s pivotal role within the renewable energy sector and communicating how food waste is a sustainable energy solution – a message no other anaerobic digestion food waste business truly owns.

ReFood collects commercial food waste and transforms the waste into renewable energy and biofertilsers through the process of anaerobic digestion. The clean energy produced then goes to supply the National Grid, while the nutrient-rich biofertilisers are used in agriculture, creating a unique closed-loop system.

Propaganda undertook a Brand Health audit for ReFood, providing the insight and strategic direction needed to evolve, strengthen its position, and retain its competitive advantage.

Tom Fowler, planning director at Propaganda said: “Having developed ReFood’s brand strategy in 2013, our challenge was to evolve this in a way that felt true to their original proposition whilst acknowledging the new role that ReFood plays in the renewable energy industry. This bold re-articulation communicates the substantial value that ReFood offers businesses – not only aligning with ESG initiatives and promoting carbon reduction, but quite literally powering the nation and the many businesses within it.”
