Hats off! Independent agent unveils marketing campaign

Independent estate agency Hat and Home has released a sneak peak of its 2023 brand marketing campaign. 

Renowned for its distinctive advertising using hat imagery to portray its service proposition, this campaign follows suit.

The series of ads to be released over the next few months see Hat and Home’s signature bowler hat as the vehicle to telling the story of reasons why people move home. 

The campaign is called ‘What Moves You?’ 

It features 3D models of hats representing reasons for moving. This includes a Lego themed hat to represent playrooms and a tree-shaped version for those seeking more green space.

The campaign can be seen across social media, print advertising, outdoor locations, online portals, email campaigns, in the company’s offices and website.

Founder Ben Gee said “It began with us asking our customers why they were moving. 

“The reasons were never to do with money, or the market or climbing the property ladder. The reasons were to do with lifestyle and relationships and opportunity for new adventures.

“People told us about moving closer to family, about new additions, about moving-in together.

“We heard stories of amazing new jobs abroad and retirement plans by the coast. As estate agents we facilitate people’s moves but what we are really doing is playing a small part in getting them to the next milestone in their life journey.”

Bear Spotted At Rice Lake Road Construction Site In Duluth

I am OBSESSED with this! A bear decided to crash a construction site in Duluth. While we don’t know exactly what the bear was doing, I am guessing he was checking out the site to see how far along the project was?

St. Louis County, Minnesota shared a photo of the cutie on social media Wednesday (August 23rd), joking that someone was not reading the signs that the construction site was closed to traffic! The bear was spotted at the site on Rice Lake Road in Duluth.

THROWBACK: Bear Hangs Outside The Miller Hill Mall

The site is for culvert replacement work so the bear might have just wanted to see how it was coming along. The bear must have also approved of the work so far because the road is still on schedule to reopen on Saturday (August 26th).

The best part of the photo, aside from the cute bear, is the comments section. People absolutely loves this bear-y cute picture and went to town with the bear puns for the occasion, as they should.

If you have a few minutes, it is definitely worth reading through all of the puns but I would like to highlight some of my favorite ones in the meantime, because they gave me a good laugh! Someone even won the internet by photoshopping a hard hat on the bear. Ha!

Good thing the road was closed. There could have been a grizzly accident! (Yes I know it’s a black bear, work with me…)


It looks like it’s ‘cub’ to terms with the inconvenience, too.


And you thought your boss was a bear! Let me tell you about my day!
