A Shropshire-based digital marketing company is expanding its capacity by joining forces with a graphic design agency which has worked with a series of national brands.

Ascendancy Internet Marketing in Shifnal has hired graphic designer Craig Hodgkiss, who founded his own company, Yellow Bird Design, three years ago.

His appointment will enhance the company’s web design capability as well as its digital marketing services, through the production of materials such as infographics and online display adverts.

Managing director Helen Culshaw said she was delighted to welcome Craig, who has a wealth of design experience, into the team.

She said: “Craig comes to us with a lot of studio experience, working across a wide variety of projects with brands such as Lucozade, Gaviscon, Nurofen and EA Games amongst many others.

“Craig founded Yellow Bird Design in 2013 and I was very impressed with his work.

“We are looking forward to Craig assisting our clients further with their websites and digital marketing.”

Mr Hodgkiss said he enjoys working closely with clients and other designers to build long term relationships and trust.

He said: “My colleagues and clients always know they can contact me for advice, insight or just a chat about any ideas they may wish to explore further.

“I have been based in Albrighton, near Shifnal, for the past three years and have worked with a variety of clients, from large pharmaceutical companies to start-up businesses in Shropshire.

“Yellow Bird Design was established as an all-round design agency, and I am really looking forward to adding my expertise to the talented team here at Ascendancy.”
