About Our Client

My client is a growing digital branding & marketing media agency. Founded over 15 years ago in a small office in London, the company has grown to 6 across the UK and Europe. In their industry they have lead award winning campaigns for their clients and as a result allowed them to grow.

During the pandemic they were proud not to have furloughed any staff.
