Founder and director Nathan Rous said he was delighted to welcome another new member to the team.

The company has also had a successful year in events too. It has securing huge amounts of coverage for three shows at the Three Counties Showground, including attracting plenty of national attention for of one of the largest food banks of its kind at the Malvern Autumn Show. 

The production team also designed some outstanding creative and branding for the two-week long Festival of Imagination in Ironbridge, while also doing PR for the festival, getting great exposure before, during and after the event.

“Although our clients are based in various different corners of the world, we are really proud to have our roots right here in Shropshire, it is a great place to work from and is full of creative talent – and our new starters in 2019 are absolutely proof of this,” added Nathan.
