The Market Creative is initially working on a consumer insight project, which will inform the brand strategy and ongoing marketing activity.

Sue Benson, MD at The Market Creative, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with this well-loved British brand. It has a strong local heritage at its roots, so we’ll be looking to make the most of this while communicating the quality workmanship and creativity that goes into every single design.”

British Ceramic Tile, which has three sites in London, Devon and West Yorkshire, is the UK’s largest manufacturer of ceramic and glass tiles. The company offers a design-led portfolio of wall and floor tiles, supplying directly to national and independent tile retailers, house builders and specifiers as well as exporting overseas.

Caryn Clarke, marketing director at British Ceramic Tile, added: “We appointed The Market Creative as we felt they had a strong grasp of our audiences and the channels we operate in. We felt inspired by their ideas and look forward to seeing how they can help us develop the brand and communicate our market-leading position.”

Established in 2011, and based in Trafford Park in Manchester, The Market Creative also works with Sharps, Grafton Merchanting GB, Holt Lloyd International and Silentnight.
