EH Academy | July - September 2020
From July - September I ran a series of educational content aimed at 10 - 18 year old children to teach them the skills to become a game designer, or an escape room designer with Escape Hunt Global. This included writing one pagers on puzzle design, narrative design, and advice direct from the Escape Hunt Studios. I was the lead copywriter on this project and wrote and produced each of the packs and managed the project from the community side too. The project ended with a competition for kids to design their own play at home escape game and the Escape Hunt Studio would design this into a playable game.

Quiz Packs | May 2020
As part of an ongoing campaign to provide play at home content whilst the Escape Hunt sites were shut during lockdown 2020, I created, produced and designed a series of free 'Quiz Packs' for people's quiz nights at home. Each one of these quiz packs were themed around our escape rooms and contained 10 quiz questions, a puzzle and a series of anagrams. We launched and promoted these ahead of the bank holiday long weekend and received over 2,000 + downloads in a short period of time. The campaign received a positive reception and strong community engagement with videos and photos shared of responses.

Easter Activity Packs | April 2020
In April 2020 in the lead up to Easter, the UK went into lockdown and Escape Hunt's sites temporarily closed. In response, I published a series of activity packs for the Easter holidays. This included a pack for kids and a pack for adults with puzzles, an Easter egg treasure hunt, cutting / folding activities and family party games. The Easter campaign was therefore primarily socially driven, encouraging players to take photographs of their creations and share on social media. The campaign was a large success and received positive press (About Manchester / Grapevine Birmingham).

World Book Day | March 2020
In March 2020 I ran the World Book Day campaign, which focused on the literary ties of Escape Hunt's escape rooms (Blackbeard's Treasure, Alice in Puzzleland etc.), as well as the central marketing tenet of 'live the adventure'. The campaign was focused on encouraging families and kids to learn by experiencing their favourite tales firsthand. As part of the campaign I ran a competition on Escape Hunt's social pages to suggest a book to be created into an escape room. Winners claimed an experience including an escape room, it's associated book, and World Book Day tokens. The marketing campaign partnered with local libraries and book shops.
12 Days of Escapemas| December 2019
In November/December 2019 I ran the Christmas campaign which was comprised of both a boosted promotional 'More the Merrier' code to encourage large bookings, and a socially led community series of videos titled '12 Days of Escapemas'.
The videos were posted each day and showcased each site's local team of Games Masters singing an Escape Hunt adapted line of the song "The 12 Days of Christmas". I wrote, directed and produced the video with filming assistance from James Davies and editing assistance from Phil White.
Pumpkin Carving | October 2019
In October 2019 I ran the 'Carve up a Treat' campaign. This was a purely social campaign encouraging creative engagement from families and fans. All UK Escape Hunt sites were decorated for Halloween and the teams were encouraged to spend the day in costume. I ran a Pumpkin Carving competition nationally, where users could enter their carved pumpkin using the hashtag #EscapeHaunt2019.
