Digital group Ralph is to expand into the north of England with a second office in Leeds, which will open on 16 April.
The consultancy has its main office in London, but is hoping to address a gap in the market for its clients based in the north of England. Ralph director Jay Armitage says, ‘Leeds is a great city. There are a few advertising and design agencies, but not many digital.’
Armitage will head up the Leeds office, working with clients such as Yorkshire Forward – the Regional Development Agency – as well as legal firm Addleshaw Goddard
‘Although our key strengths are in publishing, music and broadcasting, we are finding that our corporate clients like us to push some of these ideas over. We will continue to offer website design and build, production and advertising campaigns as we do in London,’ Armitage explains.
Director Chris Hassell will continue to oversee a team of 15 at Ralph in London.
