New hires in Newcastle and London for Cool Blue

Newcastle-HQ’d brand and communications agency, Cool Blue, has bolstered its team as part of plans to expand following a substantial number of new business wins.

The agency, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has welcomed four new members to manage the growing demand for its creative marketing and design services.

Experienced public relations professional Taimar Askew has been appointed as account director to spearhead Cool Blue’s presence in the North East, maximising local partnerships and developing its offering in the PR, social and influencer space. Askew was previously head of digital PR at Mediaworks and has worked in the communications sector for seven years.

Ryan Brkovic-Davis takes on the role of lead creative. His previous experience, working for various agencies across the UK and New Zealand, has seen him deliver projects for the All Blacks Rugby team, Nando’s, Virgin Atlantic and Lloyds Banking Group. Ryan brings a wealth of design knowledge for digital and print, from brand creation and website to animation and magazine production.

Cool Blue has also expanded the team at its central London office, which pays special attention to the interiors sector. The agency has appointed Katie Wilson as associate director, while Emma Wright has been welcomed as senior account manager.

Cool Blue was founded in 1999 by MD and communications expert Tanya Garland, who has since grown the agency’s client roster to include FTSE 100 companies as well as some of the UK’s most respected brands.

Victoria McCartney, director of brand strategy at Cool Blue, said: “With each team member bringing their own set of unique skills across communications and design, we’re thrilled to welcome our new senior colleagues at Cool Blue. Their expertise fits seamlessly with our focus on being creative and engaging with our clients.

“As we continue to celebrate our success and growth, we’re eager to work together as a team to keep pushing the boundaries of creativity in the North East and London.”
