WHAT THEY'VE SAID...
"Frankie was invaluable in the set up of DDG. From her ability to produce and articulate press coverage, arranging and running press dinners (and everything else in between), having Frankie on-board has been a huge weight off my shoulders; allowing me to focus on the food and service. Speaking as someone not particularly literate in the world of PR, Frankie was able to accurately advise on the best PR approach for DDG. And I would advise any budding restaurateurs to seek the same guidance. PR is such an important element to the success of a restaurant; it’s wise to have the right people on board, and I can’t recommend Frankie highly enough."
Oli Brown – Chef & Founder, duck duck goose
"Having worked in the industry for a while and being adequately dubious about the dark arts of PR, Marketing and Brand Development, I decided to work with A + F Creative for the opening of our Wine Bar in Elephant & Castle, knowing of their work in hospitality circles over the years. Strong branding and getting our name out into the greater wine and food world was absolutely crucial, and our development and growth aspirations were no easy task. Both Anna & Frankie have a hands on, strategic, no bullsh*t approach to their work... they are an absolute breath of fresh air in a fickle industry of promises, hype, and fads.
Within the first 6 months of our opening they had surpassed all measurable targets we had set in terms of brand presence and publications, they're honest, modest and most importantly can do what they say they can do. I've been truly fortunate to have found and worked with A + F, and our bar continues to flourish as a direct result of their involvement. I am a vehement supporter and promoter of their work and cannot recommend them highly enough."

"Frankie is a joy to work with. Energetic, engaged and genuine, she always looks at what will work best for us rather than a blanket approach. I can’t recommend her highly enough."
Miranda York – Founder of At The Table
"I worked with A+F Creative over almost a year on a number of distinct projects which included product launches, ongoing press office support, social media input and profile building. To start with they are immensely likeable, which definitely helps when gaining the trust of internal stakeholders, but more importantly they are connected, creative and do what they say they are going to do. They communicate clearly, manage expectations well, deliver strong results and remain calm when times are frenetic. They’ve been a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them in supporting any initiative in the food and drink space – they’ve a diverse range of skills and really do bring a lot to the party!"
