Duchy 27 work nominated for business award

Congratulations to the team at Cockwells who have been nominated for the Excellence in Marketing award as part of the Cornwall Business Awards.

Working with the inspiring team at Cockwells on the launch of the Duchy Motor Launches brand has been particularly rewarding for Eight Wire as they have been keen to tread new ground with confidence and determination.

Timings meant the campaign had to begin before the first boat had even been completed. In liaison with University College Falmouth, we commissioned illustrator William Grill to give a flavour of how the retro-styled Duchy 27 would look, represented in the style of a 1930s holiday poster.

Being boaties, we also got to interview a living legend in the form of Peter Nicholson, of Camper and Nicholsons renown, who spoke highly of the Duchy 27′s design heritage from a first-hand perspective. The website went live in time for the boat’s launch by HRH the Princess Royal.
