Holland’s Scary Lady poster

Famous and much-loved Lancashire pie manufacturer Holland’s was established in 1851 and has a reputation for baking excellence in addition to a wicked sense of humour. I worked on the Holland’s account for several years whilst at Principles Agency and created this poster campaign that drew on the brand’s history and nostalgia. There were multiple executions in this campaign and it received industry recognition by winning a Roses Creative Award.

May 1964: The men of Oldham had an inkling who had eaten all the Holland’s pies but for their own personal safety, decided not to voice them.

Holland’s. Every pie has its moment.
