The agency was launched in Harrogate by three former Johnston Press journalists in 2015 to create bespoke written and visual content for businesses and agencies. Recent contract wins including global interim management provider IXPA and Virtual Resolution, one of the UK’s largest dedicated animation and 3D visualisation studios.
The Content Market now has a six-strong content marketing team and a dedicated video production division offering storyboarding, film and animation.
Following a move to larger premises at Windsor House in Harrogate this autumn, the agency appointed Kate Moore, a communications strategist who has previously worked for Oxford Brookes University and Oxfordshire County Council. She will work closely with former Los Angeles media specialist Abi Hindmarch, who heads up social media marketing, to drive marketing strategy and engagement for clients.
Co-founder and director Jenni Moulson said plans for 2018 would include establishing offices in London and Edinburgh and adding to the head count in Yorkshire to boost in-house video and graphic design capability.
Jenni said: “Our strength has always been to create original written content with a journalistic edge. Alongside that, we focus heavily on how that content is shared and visualised for maximum impact with audiences.
“We have built good networks in London and Edinburgh which have led to us winning work there and the next natural step is to expand our presence in these two cities as we move towards becoming a recognised specialist in content creation on a national level."
