Creative agency teams up with former boss

23rd Nov

Blab Digital’s ambitious expansion plan involves moving to new premises, expanding its creative team and appointing its founder’s former boss, Jonathan Leafe, as business performance coach.
Courtney Wood, Blab Digital’s marketing director, said: “The first step in our expansion plan was relocating to a larger studio. More space was essential to enable us to develop a larger team of creatives. When our dream office in the iconic ERGO building became available, we jumped at the opportunity. Our new studio has an idyllic view of the Humber Bridge and can comfortably fit our expanded team to allow us to create even more knockout work for our clients.
“We’re very excited to be back working with Jonathan. I worked for him at Strawberry for seven years, from being an apprentice, and we always got on very well. It feels like we’ve just picked up on where we left off.”
Jessica Clark, Blab Digital’s creative director, said: “Hull and East Yorkshire has a vibrant creative community and we’ve been inundated with applications from talented designers and marketers eager to progress in their careers at Blab. We’re always looking to recruit the very best local talent. We’re ready for the next members of our team to hit the ground running and to join us in our mission to exceed our ambitious clients’ expectations and create compelling campaigns to allow them to punch above their weight.”
Jonathan Leafe said: “I’ve been working with Blab since October to help them fulfil their potential and accelerate their growth. Both Courtney and Jess worked at Strawberry so I got to know them very well. From early on I could see their drive and determination and I’m delighted to role-reverse with me working for them! I’ve no doubt that they’ll be successful and the work I’ve seen so far is very impressive. I’d highly recommend them to any ambitious companies that want something a bit different from their creative marketing agency.”
Hull-based Blab Digital was established in 2018 and offers a variety of creative marketing and design services including: creative marketing and branding; social media management; blogging; email marketing; online advertising; graphic design and website design.
