Nottinghamshire creative agency marks its 5th birthday with one new hire and six new clients

A Nottinghamshire creative design agency is celebrating its fifth birthday by adding a fourth member to its team after winning six new clients in six days.

The Ollerton-based Born Agency targeted six companies on a wish list of businesses across the UK that it wanted to work with in sectors including housebuilding, construction products, fire safety and air conditioning. It planned bespoke campaigns to set about engaging, establishing its credentials and pitching for work with each prospective client.

This campaign took place over the last six months, and Born Agency had one memorable week (and a bit) where it kept getting the go-ahead from each of the clients on its list.

The good news has meant that another creative has joined the team – with Carly Rogers joining from an organisation in Lincoln.

Born Agency founders Shaun Cole and Ben Trafford said that the culmination of the targeted six-month campaign has paid dividends in giving the company a wider portfolio of clients across the UK.

“We’re in the fortunate position of having a steady stream of new clients and repeat business – but for this year, we set ourselves a challenge to propel the agency forward by pinpointing six businesses and organisations that, in our opinion, needed an injection of creative branding and marketing,” said Shaun.

“We treated each prospective client as a separate, targeted campaign, allowing us to engage with the marketing teams of those firms, demonstrate our capabilities and showcase our visions for their branding and marketing.”

Ben added:

“This year we crafted each approach and put in months of work. We understood that a prospective client’s decision-making process was not an overnight thing.

“And then in the space of six days, we got a ‘yes’ from each one. It was a brilliant feeling and has put Born Agency on a new trajectory – the first step of which has been to increase our team, and Carly is a talented creative who has hit the ground running.”

Carly, who previously worked as a creative in the education sector, is loving life at Born Agency.

“I’ve joined a great team of creatives who produce some incredible work – which is comparable with that of much larger agencies,” said Carly. “I’m already working across existing clients, as well as getting involved in some of the new ones that have come on board recently.”

Born Agency is a small team of dedicated artists and problem-solvers who create epic brands, reimagine websites, design new marketing strategies and challenge the normal. For more information, visit
