March 2013

After four years of trading, beautiful world is closing its doors to allow the founders to pursue their own directions.

Since we began in 2009, we’re proud to have helped many charities take their first steps in digital and integrated fundraising. This included creating the first Facebook fundraising app for a UK charity, award winning work for our use of technology in fundraising, and being shortlisted for our social fundraising and awareness campaigns – not forgetting some very effective direct mail campaigns and helping charities save hundreds of thousands on marketing through more intelligent targeting.

The agency has no staff at time of closing and all active client projects are being seen through to fruition.

Simon has now set up Bats in Belfries, a new creatively-focused company, bringing together experienced writers, art directors, planners, artists, web designers, and filmmakers (think of it as a creative dept for hire) to work on brand communications projects. He can be reached at simon [at] batsinbelfries.com

Rachel will continue to work with charities and partners wishing to focus on innovation in giving, as well as continuing to run NFPtweetup events. Contact Rachel by email.

We’d like to thank everyone who has worked with us, supported us and brought us coffee over the years – we look forward to seeing you soon.

Rachael Beer and Simon Frank
