Leeds agency DS.Emotion has brought in four new members of staff.

Joining the agency are Brandon Whittaker (web developer/designer), Jack Trotman (creative designer), Paul Watkins (creative artworker) and Frazer Sparham (design intern).

The appointments follow the firm’s 27% growth in sales last year, with a similar rate of growth forecast this year.

Established in Leeds 24 years ago, DS.Emotion also has studios in Manchester and London.


DS.Emotion’s new recruits

Founder Matthew Button said: “Having studios in multiple locations is a different approach from our competitors that often have only one UK office. We value the diversity of multiple locations and our differing skills and personalities but cherish our ability to collaborate when a brief will benefit from this approach.

“It’s great to welcome Jack, Brandon, Frazer and Paul to the Leeds studio. Between them they have a great blend of youthful enthusiasm and strong experience of working with major corporate clients.”

The agency, which has worked recently with clients including Watson Batty Architects, Civica, the NHS and Q Hotels, is also looking to recruit further team members to its Manchester studio.

Co-owner Angus Armitage added: “Offices in further cities are a possibility. We see Edinburgh as a great opportunity and a logical place for our next studio.”
