Strawberry was established in 1993 and, over the past 20 years, has grown to become one of Hull and East Yorkshire’s largest marketing and design agencies. We have a variety of local, national and international clients, who we work with closely as a member of their in-house marketing team. We employ 28 members of staff and, as a full service agency, our services include branding, creative design, website design and development, and digital marketing. We feature on the Recommended Agency Register as a result of positive client feedback, and have recently been named in The Drum’s Digital Census and Design Top 100 ñ a collection of the best agencies in the UK.
We developed the Strawberry Academy to give school, college and university students the opportunity to gain work experience and feedback on their work. We also hire apprentices and recruit graduates to bring fresh new ideas to the agency. We work closely with schools on our work experience programme, catering for all requests when possible. We offer work experience placements across the whole agency, including graphic design, digital marketing and website design and development.
Our directors also regularly attend events to give feedback on students’ work from a professional viewpoint and, in the past, we have held workshops for people who want to work in the industry to show them how we operate.
Nurturing the talent of tomorrow is extremely important to us. We strongly believe that local, young creative design and marketing talent should be encouraged to stay in the Hull area instead of moving away to places such as Leeds, Manchester and London. This is why we work with education establishments to offer work experience to students, to give them a taste of agency life. We help students to put what they’ve learnt at school, college and university into practice in an agency setting, to boost their CV. This not only benefits us as an agency, it helps Hull’s creative industry as a whole.
