Recent website launches for clients such as Arrow Self Drive, Animalcare Limited and Spear & Jackson, in addition to successful new European digital marketing contracts including CCL Label, the largest label manufacturer in the world, put the agency in a strong position for continued growth into 2018.

The £7,700 grant secured through the European Regional Development AD:VENTURE business programme will assist Wish in purchasing new equipment for its expanding team. The relocation has also paved the way for some new recruits, with 2 jobs created already and a further 3 over the next 6 months
