Red means go for city agency

Have your say

Creative services agency Red HQ is creating jobs after trebling sales in six months and moving to larger premises in the Workstation on Paternoster Row.

The expansion comes a year after the agency was launched by Richard Hall and Steve Quin, who worked for the award winning Sheffield branding agency DKPM, until it closed its doors last year.

Clients include companies in the electronics, computer games, aviation, education and medical sectors, as well as a number of other agencies.

Richard Hall puts the company’s growth down to providing traditional graphic design and artwork services which, he says, some agencies have stopped focusing on in order to develop their digital business.

“Businesses everywhere will always need print items, be these brochures, sales tools, packaging, Point of Sale or large format displays for exhibitions and events,” said Mr Hall.

“We have reams of experience in providing this type of marketing collateral, and when we set the business up it made sense to concentrate on our expertise. We’ve also gone all out to attract business from overseas, from countries which are not greatly affected by the global downturn.

“Steve and I are a great example of how redundancy can be a catalyst for change and a positive new start. We are really looking forward to a second successful year.”
