We might only be a month in, but we're already loving 2018. From TV shows to burgers we've picked out our Bigg 5 January highlights, read on to discover what’s been making us smile despite the miserable weather!
1. Marketing - Favourite campaign
We love OkCupid's new, brightly coloured, aesthetically pleasing, enlightened campaign. Wieden + Kennedy have rethought the blunt acronym DTF and replaced the F with dozens of more meaningful alternatives. Examples include 'down to farmers market,' 'down to finish my novel' and 'down to fall head over heels.' Their point is, dating should be about more than just looks, their tagline is 'dating deserves better.' We're definitely down with their way of thinking.

2. Media - Favourite TV show
Charlie Brooker blew our minds once again with Black Mirror season 4, released on Netflix on January 1st 2018. We've been debating it all month in the office but our Bigg favourite episode is definitely 'Hang the DJ.' We won't give you any spoilers but this episode warmed our hearts while satirizing dating apps.

3. Moments - Favourite news story
At times during 2017 the news left us feeling hopeless and deflated. The Time's Up campaign has given us renewed faith in humanity (and girl power). Actresses and activists stepped onto the red carpet at the Golden Globes wearing black to raise awareness of the Time’s Up campaign. If you aren't already aware the Time's Up campaign is publicly calling time on sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace. It represents a unified call for change. The Time's Up Legal Defense Fund will subsidize legal support for individuals who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.
4. Munchies - Favourite restaurant
Towards the end of 2017 we were delighted that Bristol favourite Oowee diner opened their second restaurant just a stone’s throw from our office on North Street in Southville. Oowee specialise in deliciously dirty burgers made from premium ingredients. Our Bigg favourite has to be the Sneaky Clucker, deep fried seitan patty, melted vegan cheese, vegan dirty sauce and iceberg lettuce. It’s the perfect treat if you, like some of the members of our team, have been taking part in Veganuary.
