Three former directors of Edward Briscoe Design have launched their own design group. Called The Company, it is the third group launched by former Briscoe Design staff within the past 12 months.
The Company will offer a full design service, but plans to specialise in internal marketing and business communications, says partner Adrian Wheeler (pictured, centre). Formerly Briscoe Design creative director, Wheeler set up The Company with Liz Brown (left) and Sandra Wheatley (right), both former Briscoe Design account directors.
All three left their former posts in June.
“After helping Briscoe survive some of its most challenging times, we felt it was time to launch a new company, in line with today’s trend towards internal marketing,” says Wheatley.
The group is working for clients including Citibank and hotel booking service REZsolutions (formerly Utell). The three founders are currently supported by freelance help, but plan to increase the consultancy to around 15 permanent staff over the next five years.
