A new year, a new role and a new face at artisan!

Posted: 12th January 2022

The dust has settled on Christmas once more, and as the new year begins to take shape, I would like to introduce myself, having joined the team at artisan as Business Manager.

 

Coming from a background in sales account management and more recently social media, mainly in the London property market and the fine wine trade, my role here at artisan is to introduce the agency and its 25 plus years of full-service marketing experience to new clients, increasing our exposure in new and exciting market sectors, and welcoming new businesses, large and small, to the fun, dynamic and creative world of artisan.

 

Joining artisan has been a great experience so far! Based in our purpose-built offices on the edge of the Georgian market town of Stamford, nestled in the beautiful countryside on the border of the five counties that make up this part of the country, it’s a great location for a creative agency. Our open-plan office set-up encourages a fun and interactive working environment, where ideas are pooled as a team, and our work is delivered as a cohesive unit, servicing our clients’ needs in a highly professional, friendly, and creative way.

 

Working on the new business side of things is an exciting environment for me, as I get to interact with business directors, marketing decision-makers and brand managers from all areas of the country, and from a wide variety of industries. No day is the same!

 

With both a local and nationwide ‘radar’ I am keen to hear from potential clients in the Stamford, Oakham and Peterborough area as well as further afield, who feel that they could benefit from a fresh approach to their creative marketing strategy. If you have a particular project in mind, which we could have a look at for you and kick start your creative campaign for 2022 with a new angle, some new ideas, and a new marketing business partner going forward, then don’t hesitate to get in touch!

 

With a background in the property market, it’s great to see that artisan has been heavily involved in the strategic planning and delivery of some fantastic campaigns in the property market, particularly with providers of luxury retirement / residential living accommodation, and we are keen to develop our work in this area further.

 

As a keen traveller, outdoor enthusiast, ski-nut and foodie, I am particularly interested to hear from brands in these markets, especially as artisan has worked on some excellent campaigns for household names in these industries in the past, enabling us to bring some strong transferrable skills and experience to the table.

 

I also know that the creative team are keen to get their teeth into more video production / 3d animation work to expand upon their already considerable expertise delivering high-quality digital campaigns.

 

Take us for a test drive with a slice of the pie and let us show you how artisan makes the journey from brief, through concept development and on to delivery, professional, creative, and above all fun.

 

Developing relationships with new clients is what makes me tick, and the door is very much open for 2022, as we look to the year ahead, and the projects that it will bring.

 

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
