Flying Pig lands at Bates

Kiwi on-line web store, Flying Pig , has appointed The Bates Palace to handle its brand development and marketing communications.

The appointment marks a significant step in Flying Pig's ambition to be New Zealand's leading webstore according to Flying Pig marketing manager Kirsten Ford.

The Bates Palace, along with sister companies 141 Palace Plus and The Media Palace, will manage the brand across all facets of communication.

Kirsten Ford said Flying Pig chose The Bates Palace for its creative and strategic abilities as well as Bates' "ability to deliver solutions seamlessly across all aspects of the marketing mix".
