Latest recruitment drive for creative agency

Six new faces at Fluid Ideas as growth continues

"They are all highly creative and committed professionals with a passion for their specialisms and are great additions to our team"
Phil Harvey

Creative agency Fluid Ideas has recruited six staff as its expansion continues.

The Derbyshire agency has welcomed Rosie Blackwall and Kate Barton as account managers.

They each have more than 10 years’ experience in the sector. Rosie has joined Fluid from HRG (UK), a marketing agency based in Northampton, while Kate has moved from Diversity Creative Marketing, based in Nottingham.

Fluid has strengthened its search and social team with the appointment of Hope Crosby and Lauren Brewell.

Hope, who also runs a food blog focused on healthy living, has joined after graduating from the University of Derby.

Lauren, an experienced marketing executive and a lifestyle blogger and author, has joined Fluid from Keylink, a supplier of chocolate, ingredients and equipment to the chocolate industry.

Fluid’s design and artwork team has been bolstered by the arrival of creative art workers Jessica Johnson and Rob Morton.

Jessica has joined from Nottinghamshire marketing agency One Product, while Rob has moved from Leicester-based Unsworth Sugden Group.

Fluid Ideas is a full-service agency whose operations cover branding and campaigns, graphic and website design, computer-generated imagery, 3D animation and video, photography, copywriting, digital marketing, content management and social media.

Its client base spans sectors including healthcare, retirement living, property, professional services, education, finance, leisure and hospitality. The agency is based at Darley Abbey Mills, near Derby.

Joint managing director Phil Harvey said: “As our client base continues to expand, we are delighted to welcome six newcomers to our team to help us to meet the growth in demand for our services.

“They are all highly creative and committed professionals with a passion for their specialisms and are great additions to our team.

“Search and social is expanding rapidly as clients shift to a greater reliance on more instant and measurable digital marketing tactics. Growth for our design and artwork team shows that traditional design still has a place as part of the brand and marketing toolkit for clients.

“Investing in our account management team means we are better-placed to help our clients meet the increased demand they are seeing themselves as the economy bounces back.

“Our clients tell us Fluid is like an extension of their business, and these additions will help to further strengthen the support we can provide.”

The latest appointments follow on the heels of a recruitment drive which saw seven new arrivals at Fluid Ideas earlier in the year.
