One year after establishing a northern office, creative communications agency, ib3, are celebrating their expansion with an exciting new campaign. The firm’s latest design work for Bubble Customised Clothing is being showcased on a digital billboard high above the entrances to The Halliwell Jones Stadium, rugby league team Warrington Wolves’ home ground.
Bubble is the latest in a line of new ib3 clients based in Cheshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire. The firm is jointly owned by Mike Cooper, international rugby league player and Warrington Wolves star, and businessman, Sam Wareing. With their embroidery business growing rapidly, the duo were keen to obtain professional marketing advice. So far, ib3 have assisted them with print design, marketing and Pay Per Click advertising campaigns. Commenting on the collaboration, Mike said:
“We’re going through a stage of rapid growth within our business and it‘s great to have the team at ib3 working alongside us to help market our services. Not only have their design and technical skill added value, but we’ve really appreciated their guidance and advice.”
ib3 have been a feature of the Kent business landscape for over twenty years. The idea behind setting up a northern office was twofold: ib3 have a number of clients with satellite offices in the north of England and wanted to be able to provide the best, most responsive service to them; and, with the growing ambition of the Northern Powerhouse, they understood the fantastic business opportunities that lie in the region.
ib3 directors Frank Blackwell and Stephen Brewin recruited marketing specialist, Adam Seddon, who is originally from Warrington, as their new commercial manager in early 2017. Formerly an account manager at Coca-Cola, United Biscuits and Nestlé, Adam now heads up the northern office. Having known the founders of Bubble for many years, he is pleased to now be helping them grow their business:
“We’re thrilled to have secured a number of new clients over the past year, ranging from Bubble to a Legal 500 international law firm, to an exciting, young recruitment agency. Working with such a diverse range of businesses who have warmly welcomed us has been brilliant.”
And with ambitious plans to invest further in their northern arm over the next five years, ib3’s growing team of digital, design and advertising specialists are looking forward to seeing what exciting projects lay ahead.
