Harrison Carloss, the Staffordshire based strategic marketing and creative agency that first opened its doors in 1972, this year celebrates its 50th year in business.
As Staffordshire’s oldest established and longest running agency with 50 years of creative triumphs behind them and a heap of awards and achievements, Harrison Carloss has made a name for itself in the industry working with a huge mix of clients on a string of highly successful campaigns for global, national and regional brands.
Following a complete rebrand 3 years ago, the agency has seen a considerable transformation, bolstering its in-house capabilities in the process.
Since then, they have experienced huge growth and continued to build on their solid foundation in strategic marketing, enhancing their digital, web design and web development offering. In the process they have produced outstanding work for clients to further build on a long reputation as a leading creative agency.
Among more recent successes the agency has been recommended for no less than 35 services on The Drum Recommends and have received 8 The Drum digital, marketing and advertising award nominations and 4 Prolific North award nominations. In addition, the agency featured in The Northern Agency Guide 2021 for the second year running.
The agency also achieved the Google Partner accolade, all thanks to the hard work and dedication of several members of the HC team strengthening their digital capabilities.
Commenting on the agency’s golden anniversary, Adam Mobley, Harrison Carloss’ Managing Director, said: “50 years old! Even we can hardly believe it. When Mike and John set the agency up, there was no internet, no computers, no emails, no smartphones. It makes you wonder how the agency got anything done!
“It’s something of an achievement for an agency to still be independently owned at 50 years old. We’re obviously doing all the right things. Just in the last year, the close and passionate collaboration of our account and creative teams has seen us enjoy sustained growth with a number of significant client wins. We also increased our retainer revenues significantly.
“Our strength is a fearless creative drive, an enviable wealth of marketing expertise, and a commitment to produce outstanding and thought-provoking work for our clients.
“Naturally, we have a few anniversary-marking activities planned but we’re keeping those under wraps for now. This year is a huge achievement and celebration for us and we’re looking forward to our continuing growth and success.”
