A Sunderland communication consultancy has appointed two new team members after seeing increased demand for its services.

Growing comms and creative agency, Creo Comms, which recently moved to a new office on Foyle Street, has welcomed Alice Clark as a designer and Beth Dixon as a junior client partner.

Alice is a multi-disciplined illustrator and graphic designer, who has worked both in-house and as a freelancer with clients ranging from The LA Times to local independent businesses. In her role, Alice will create engaging artwork for print and digital platforms, leading and supporting on creative projects.

She said: “I was so excited when I was offered the job. I can’t wait to get involved in some of the amazing projects Creo Comms is working on. I know, together, we’ll create outstanding work that really showcases the best the North East has to offer.”

Beth Dixon was appointed at the same time, and joins Creo after more than three years of agency experience. A journalism graduate and experienced copywriter, she will support on a variety of client accounts and Creo’s growing roster of social media clients.

Beth said: “I am really looking forward to contributing to Creo’s success and embracing their creative approach to PR and communications. It’s great to be working in my hometown and supporting clients from the city, as well as a number of projects we deliver for clients across the country.”

The team is settling into its new headquarters on Foyle Street – a four-storey building which comprises office space, hot desking facilities, a board room and editing suites – where they deliver dynamic comms services to an array of clients including Sunderland City Council, Legal & General, Castles & Coasts Housing Association and the Department for International Trade.

Louise Bradford, managing director of Creo Comms, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Alice and Beth to the team.

“Their experience, passion and personality shone through during the recruitment process, despite it all being done virtually, and we’re looking forward to introducing them to our clients, who will no doubt be as impressed as I am by their work.”

Creo offers PR and communications support, as well as design, social media marketing, web design and video production.
