A new creative marketing agency has been launched ‘in a wood near York’ to boost rural businesses in Yorkshire and beyond.

WILD is founded and directed by Jenni Tulip, who has headed creative marketing agency Social Rocks for the last five years.

The agency focuses on supporting regional and local businesses with a connection to Yorkshire’s great outdoors, nature and rural ways of life. 

“We are huge advocates of rural living and rural businesses, especially in our home county of Yorkshire, which we are incredibly proud of,” said Tulip.

“WILD has been a growing concept for some time, but with the turbulence of the past few months, and the impact this has had on rural businesses and communities all around us, it feels like now is the time to help them recover and flourish.

“As well as having a negative impact, for many rural organisations across the UK, the Covid-19 pandemic has actually created the immense potential for businesses to adapt and diversify to meet the change in demands of customers.

“The response to lockdown unleashed a newfound love for the outdoors across the nation, quickly followed by the rural tourism sector springing back into action as soon as the 4th July easing of restrictions were announced.

“With staycations and support for British brands on the rise, the time has never been better to celebrate rural businesses in Yorkshire, the heart of Britain, and to help them thrive once again.” 

Sheryl Cookson is Art Director and Graphic Designer of the agency, based in Arglam Wood in Holme On Spalding Moor, while David MacKarill is IT Architect.

Clients already include Sustainable Landscapes, Bishops Manor and Enfields Luxe.
