Sometimes, it feels like generational labels are all that dominates what we read and see.
Baby Boomers, Generation X, Y, Millennials, and Generation Z
Marketers, advertisers and the media alike seem obsessed with highlighting the differences between the generational gaps and using them to tailor their strategies. But do these differences actually alter spending habits, and how do the ‘youth’ really feel about being labelled?
That’s what we aim to answer..
Our panel discussion will delve into the what it means to be a millennial or a baby boomer, decipher who the forgotten gen X is and have a look at the emerging gen Z, who are soon going to be entering the workforce enlarge. We will also consider whether or not there’s any value at all in targeting audiences by generation, and how this definition differs depending who’s asking.
Are there consequences in reducing an entire group of people into a set of generational stereotypes? What role do brands play in perpetuating these stereotypes? And most importantly, what does this mean for us as consumers ourselves?

We started in 2014 with a small office, a few laptops, a cheesy playlist and a couple of people with a passion for digital marketing. Over fifteen hires, two fridges and four room moves later, we’ve finally packed up and moved up, quite literally. We’ve left behind 130 Old Street and moved further into the heart of Shoreditch, where we now take up the top floor of 114-116 Curtain Road.
As much as we loved our little office on Old Street, we’re growing and we needed a bigger space for our growing team. Plus it couldn’t hurt to be closer to veggie Pret.Read More »

Curated is continuously growing with new business, new projects and new staff, but we also like to push ourselves to grow in other ways. After years of successfully running healthcare projects for clients, we noticed that there’s a pretty big gap between what women search for online when it comes to health and the lack of information there is out there. Instead of waiting for someone to jump in and do it for us, we decided to take the plunge and launch The Femedic, the first publication of our publishing arm. With Monica, Curated’s Director & Head of Content at its helm, the site will break down the barriers around women’s health by providing a platform to discuss topics which are otherwise considered taboo.
Head to The Femedic to check out content on women’s health.Read More »

Last year we were delighted to be nominated for ‘Start-up of the year 2014’ in the Guardian Small Business awards.
The nomination comes off the back of Curated’s initial success as a start up. Our Founder, Simon didn’t realise that the company would take off quite as fast as it did, which resulted in having to move offices a lot earlier than anticipated to make room for all the new hires.
The nomination outlines how our open and honest approach to digital marketing has been instrumental in our company’s growth. To read more about this nomination, click here.Read More »
Last year, Simon was nominated for Leader of the year 2014. A good leader is, as I’m sure you know, someone who you want to learn from, who you want to follow and ultimately someone you look up to and respect.
Luckily for us, Simon is pretty good at these things, mainly due to his belief that a company is only as good as its employees and culture is very important in a start up.
When forming the business, Simon decided that he wanted to run an open company, where his employees aren’t afraid to ask him questions or share their opinions.
