“We’ve worked with Independent Life since before we opened and wouldn’t work with anyone else. They do things differently.”

Marko Husak, Bundobust

Our Approach

WORKED with Bundobust since before it opened its doors to its first premises, providing marketing services that capture its unique spirit.

SPONSORED 10,000 copies of each of our Leeds editions of The Little Black Books, listed within each book, advertised in the first edition of The Book of York, featured in every edition of our magazine, commissioned many films, appeared online, across social and became series originators taking an outward look at other food operators in the food scene across Leeds and suburbs.

DELIVERED results consistently. Bundobust are our longest serving customer with no break in contract since day one of opening their doors. We have worked with them in other cities too doing filming, setting up competitions and feature writing.
