Congratulations to studio members Continuum who have scooped the prestigious Adviser Firm of the Year award for South West and Wales at the Professional Adviser Awards 2020.
The awards celebrate excellence within the financial services across the whole of the UK. The six finalists were subjected to rigorous vetting by leading industry experts.
Continuum has been shortlisted for the awards for the last three years. This award comes just a week after they were also named Wealth Management Firm of the Year by Sesame Bankhall Group, who provide support services to over 11,000 adviser firms.
Continuum’s Managing Partner Martin Brown said: “To win Adviser Firm of the Year, one of the most recognised awards in our industry, is a real testament to all the hard work that is put in collectively and individually every day.”
Studio members Motherlode Media are completing a digital marketing campaign for the 50th anniversary of The Beatles Yellow Submarine which is being screened around the globe.
The project spans a global campaign including theatrical trailers, a website build incorporating a ticketing interface, and produced content for a three-month rollout across The Beatles official social media channels.
On behalf of Apple Corps, they worked with Picture House cinemas in the UK and Abramorama in the US marketing the film’s 50th-anniversary return to the big screen. They also worked with Universal Music to support the soundtrack and merchandise programme.
An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colourful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages – filled with visual invention, optical illusions, wordplay and glorious music.

What are you enjoying most about your new home at Glove Factory Studios?
The view! Our offices overlook the lake. And the atmosphere – there are lots of other creative businesses here.
Over drinks and delicious “nibbles”, a group of Glove Factory Studio members got together on the glorious evening of Tuesday 10th May in The Field Kitchen. Studio member Robin Worrall, of Design and Brand Consultancy Rednine, led a discussion on the effect that social media has on our lives from a personal and business perspective.
“We agreed that we live in a time when connectivity has never been so intense. One tweet can turn the world on its head, making and breaking an individual in the blink of an eye. But are we actually observing and absorbing what we see and hear – do we stop to think or are we continually on transmit?
We talked about how social media is scaling to a peak of information overload and a propensity towards narcissism, it’s all about ‘me’ and ‘what I’m doing’. Events are a sea of cameras recording, but are people missing the actual ‘moment’ in favour of posting how fun/exciting/important/interesting their lives are. Are we all venturing into cyberspace and away from actually living and enjoying what and who are most important to us?
We were left considering what tomorrow may look like for the next generation as they seek validation from their anonymous virtual fanbase. How we all need to employ a strong will to self police our attachment to the barrage of communications and whether niche subject groups will emerge and replace the masses.” Robin Worrall.
