BIG Partnership has appointed Steven Hill to the new role of creative director.

Hill has previously spent eight years as creative director at London and Edinburgh agency Multiply and was also design director at The Gate.

He's developed strategies for leading brands including Kraft Heinz, Highland Spring, Tennent’s, the Famous Grouse and Royal Bank of Scotland, and has led public sector creative campaigns for the NHS and Scottish Government.

He will work in the agency’s office in Spinningfields in Manchester as well as its five bases in Scotland.

BIG has recently reported a record increase in turnover of £1.4 million to £8.8m which resulted in a £250,000 bonus pot shared by its 107 people.

Allan Barr, director and head of digital and marketing, said: “Steven’s appointment adds a powerhouse of creative weight to our branding strategies and creative campaigns. His ideas and experience are sought after in the UK and beyond. Working closely with our design and digital teams, clients will benefit from Steven’s well considered creative strategies, brought to life in the most imaginative ways to trigger a desired response.”

Another recent BIG appointment, content director Stephen Noble, will work closely with Hill.
