After what felt like the longest January in history, and with yet another lockdown, we finally approached February with a new sense of positivity, potential and ambition.
So far in 2021 we’ve had not one…not two…but three (!) new people joining our great team.
Jo, our new Senior Account Exec with lots of experience of media planning and buying, will be supporting our account handling team in Bristol. “I really love how welcoming the team have been, and it sounds cheesy, but I can already see that SBW really are ‘for the good stuff’, which is super important to me. It’s never easy starting a new job – let alone in a pandemic – so it was a little nerve-wracking to begin with, but I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and considerate bunch!”
Tamarin, our new Senior Designer will be strengthening our studio team with extensive experience of developing creative campaigns for big agencies in South Africa. “My first month at SBW has been an educational introduction into brands of the UK. Coming from South Africa, a country with 11 official languages, I have enjoyed the Welsh Government’s bilingual ads. My new teammates have been welcoming and warm via teams, many smiley emoticons later. I’m most looking forward to flexing my creativity for all of our amazing clients and getting familiar with our office location in Clifton.”
Caitlin, our new Junior Designer will be supporting our studio team, putting into practice all the knowledge she gained from her degree at UWE. “I’ve had a great first month at SBW so far – everyone has been so friendly and supportive, and even though we’ve all been working remotely we’re all really well connected. I’ve developed my skills so much so quickly – it’s great to have the opportunity to learn on the job too.”
We have been incredibly busy since we have been back in January, with ongoing campaigns as well as getting a few ready to go live this March! It’s been ‘all engines go’ with lots of planning, creative development and production, including market testing and filming three TV adverts (all following COVID-19 safety guidelines of course). It’s all for national, proper good stuff campaigns – which will have a positive impact in this world!
